… got an email from Beth.
“Hi Michael! You send out A LOT of emails! How can I get off of everything except the newsletter?”
I could have said, “You can’t. If you want the free stuff you get the promotional stuff. That’s the way this works.”
But, since I have an easy way to do what she’s asking, why not bend the rules and accommodate her? (Which I did.)
Big companies need policies, procedures, rules. They can’t survive without them – but it’s also what makes working with them so frustrating.
The flexibility that being a solo allows is one of our competitive advantages.
