One of the big problems with trying to find some “me” time as a wholesaler is the endless blending of information on your smartphone.
Many wholesalers we know have just one smartphone that merges their home life and their business life.
The problem is, when you are trying to tune out work (‘trying’ being the operative word), you have to scroll past work message in your inbox to get to your personal email from friends and family.
One solution is to get a separate device – but then you need to schlep two devices.
Another solution (and if you have others please share in comments below) is to use Gmail for all your personal email business.
Note that Gmail functionality includes the ability to send and receive from other, non Gmail, email accounts so you don’t necessarily have to switch to the separate Gmail address.
