How To Email Like A Boss
I love language. Finding a word that means exactly what I want to say. The sound of certain words as they leave my lips. The quirky colloquialisms that bring conversation to life. Even the odd swear word.
Used well, your choice of language can increase the impact of your message. Used poorly, it can have the opposite effect. (And obviously, when it comes to your personal brand, it’s the former you’re aiming for.)
Here’s how to do it…
That’s why I was tickled pink (lovely phrase that) to see an illustration by Dani Donovan who, in her own words, is doing her best to help reduce the stigma of ADHD though her web-based comics.

I simply thought, “That’s a really useful way to show how switching the language you use can vastly alter the impact.” Which is why I’m sharing it here in the hope you’ll find it useful too – regardless of whether you have ADHD or not.
What scenarios do you struggle with when it comes to choosing your words? And what have you come up with to cope with that? Any tips you want to share are always appreciated – there’s a comment box below ready and waiting. Thank you.
