How to Email Like a Boss

View this post on Instagram

???? I've been working on being more conscious of how I write emails, and made this handy printable guide! . I have a bad habit of overusing exclamation points, emojis, and qualifiers like "just" and "possibly" to sound extra-friendly and non-threatening in emails. (“Just wondering / just confirming / just checking / just making sure / just wanted to let you know”) . You are allowed to take up space. Your voice deserves to be heard. Your opinions matter. You don’t need to apologize for existing or asking for what you need. You are not “bossy” or “bitchy” for not sounding like a pep-machine 24/7. . If you act like a doormat, you better develop a taste for shoe leather. You have power too. Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself— no one else is gonna do it for you. .

This will surely come in handy!

Yeah, about that middle one...Sometimes you're better off just deleting the email and starting over, especially if you're upset/angry while writing it. Meeting in person might not be the best idea in that situation.
As for "No problem/No worries" well, I think that might be a regional thing. It's totally fine around here.
