Tips for Creating Your Outgoing Voicemail Message

It’s raining here in Santa Monica! Hip Hip!! We have been in a drought for so long that it would take many months of steady rain to make up for the sinking groundwater, but I am so grateful to mother nature. When it rains it feels like a new beginning. Washing out the pollution in the air and giving us all a much-needed, thirst-quenching rejuvenation. Ahhhhhhhh…

You know what else needs a new beginning? Your OUTGOING VOICEMAIL MESSAGE! That’s right! Let’s face it, when was the last time you heard the message on your voicemail?

The Benefits of Healthy Boundaries

Years ago, I worked with a freelancer who set the most perfect ground rules at the beginning of our relationship: Don’t call - instead, email me, I prefer email. If you email after this time, I won’t respond until that time. And we won’t discuss work on the weekends -...
