Ask almost any highly productive individual on earth what daily task they dread most. Be they entrepreneurs, directors, CEOs or managers, their answer will be e-mail!
E-mail is tedious yes, but remains important to large parts of our work. Very few businesses can function without it. If you dread spending time on e-mail, it really only leaves you with two options: learn to love it or get someone else to do it.
An efficient assistant can be a super, secret weapon. While they are processing the e-mails, you are finishing something else, making you doubly as effective. With proper training, your clients and colleagues will not even know it wasn’t you who replied but your assistant.
These steps will empower your assistant to take over all your e-mails.
