I was questioned for an article that appeared about a week back on the NFIB site on ways that instant messaging (IM’ing for short) can be helpful in the office:
I find it super helpful for example, when I’m on the phone especially, and my assistant needs to ask me something without talking over my phone conversation. This also qualifies undre my “Cheap Ba**ard” category because IM is usually free!
By the way, if you’d like to receive a weekly summary of helpful articles like this one and others like my extremely popular & educational “401k Loans Down but Hardship Withdrawals Up” and “Independent Custodian Is Key to Protecting Your Money”, and my fun off-topic articles like “The History of Hills Brothers Coffee and the Vacuum Seal Mystery,” then you need to join my Insiders’ Club – what is that? With the IC you’ll get a weekly summary of all articles I write here and at my business site Walnut Hill Advisors, LLC. You’ll also get first chance invites to free workshops and educational programs I run along with other benefits. Learn more about the Insiders’ Club HERE.
