I live in email. I treat email like IM. Please don’t be offended by brevity and terse emails. Email only, please. Email is also my to-do list. If we talk about something and you want me to do it, please send me a reminder email. Please do not call or text.
If you don’t hear back from me within a few days, bump the email thread. I appreciate it a lot.
If you choose to call, and I send you to VM, which is likely, do not immediately call again. I will block your phone number. The intrusion is disrespectful of my time.
I do my own scheduling and generally suck at it. If we don’t set up a calendar invite, there is a good chance I totally forget about it.
I try to ignore my email on the weekends. Try being the operative word.
I read all my Twitter and Linkedin DMs. I rarely respond. If you don’t know me, that is an ok way to reach out. If you are pitching, email me something to look at, like a deck.
I practice double opt-in introductions unless it is an intro to someone truly amazing, where the fit is perfect. Please do the same for me.
I can be truly incompetent about trivial things. Please don’t be surprised.
I work in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina–Eastern Time Zone.
I try to live by the Warren Buffet school of meetings and avoid having them as much as possible.
You might find me rude if I refuse a meeting or ask to do it over email. Sorry. I am just trying to save us both wasted time.
If I am a jerk, do something dumb, or generally seem oblivious, please let me know. I often have no clue; your feedback is priceless.
Please let me know if you have suggestions for this document so I can add them. Like me, it is a work in progress.
