Email has been an all pervading part of entrepreneurial life for the last few decades. These days, Dan and Ian have mixed feelings about email in general. In exploring how to step up some of their strategies for dealing with it, they decided to talk to someone who is always happy to open his inbox.

Chris Van Patten of Van Patten Media is just that guy. Chris loves working with email, and he’s not afraid to share his feelings about it. In this episode, you’re going to hear some approaches to handling email and why, sometimes, it’s ok to give yourself permission not to respond.


Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • Why Chris uses three different email accounts. (2:57)
  • How much time Chris spends on email each day. (4:12)
  • The power that comes with receiving a second email. (7:28)
  • How you could benefit from having someone answer your emails for you. (10:58)
  • Dan and Ian’s thoughts on how they might implement some of these strategies. (14:59)
