bundle2017

In honor of the New Year, we teamed up with our favorite productivity pals to offer you the best gift we can think of: awesome deals on amazing productivity tools.

Whatever your pain point, this productivity bundle has something to alleviate it. These are products we love and use ourselves. To us, the hours and headaches saved are more than worth the full price.

The best part? Each product is deeply discounted just for you, and you can take advantage of one or all of them. The more you get, the more you save, with total savings of over $200 (and probably just as many hours saved 🙂 ).

Happy New Year from all of us at SaneBox!

How to stay sane while leading a remote team

working remotely

Remote teams have been growing in number. In the U.S., the percentage of remote workers has increased from 9% in 1995 to 37% in 2015. This new business model has a lot of incredible benefits: being able to cull talent from around the world regardless of location, financial savings (no office building, etc.), and the convenience of everyone working their own hours rather than being crunched into the 9-5 workday.

While many remote workers report increased job satisfaction, what about those responsible for coordinating such teams?

How to get a meeting with any Silicon Valley exec

Silicon Valley Meeting

How do you get the attention of a top executive, let alone schedule a meeting with one?

Not only can their contact information seem difficult to come by, but with their full schedules and army of assistants, you need to have a pretty appealing offer to earn an appointment.

The average corporate employee sends and receives over 120 emails every day. For most executives, this number is even higher. How do you stand out in a sea of words? How do you make an offer that they can’t refuse?

Hint: It all comes down to making the right contact with the right person.

Guest post by John Arthur

You’ve heard it a million times: time is money. And email, if not approached correctly, can be one of the biggest drains on your time, and by extension a drain on your bottom line.

Not only can email be a time suck, but if you’re not on top of it, you can miss crucial messages, neglect to follow up with important clients, and, generally, let more things fall through the cracks than any professional should.
