Not An Email Guy

I have a friend who runs a very successful business.

Not moderately successful; very successful. His business's revenue each month is measured in the millions.

Recently, when speaking about how we should communicate with one another, he smiled sheepishly and admitted, “I'm not really an e-mail guy.”

Think about it. $24 million dollar business. Doesn't do email.

I'm not saying the success of his business is dependent upon him not using e-mail. But I am saying it is interesting to note that he is successful despite not using e-mail.

Something to think about.

    Here’s my take: When someone operates a $24 million business, he doesn’t have to be an email guy, because he can employ a whole stable of email guys to work for him. My guess is that your client probably has a bunch of staff that DOES use email.

    If I’m wrong, and if he has managed to build a $24 million business in which no email is being used throughout the organization, it would be interesting to see what that business is generating in 5 or 10 years.
