The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: What's annoying me today
Correct. Get calls out of the way at the start of the day and leave me to get on with what I need to do.

Ideally yes but this falls down when 'start of the day' is different globally, my cal is usually booked out mornings for local stand-ups but even more booked every afternoon, early for east coast, later for west coast teams.

As Guru says, you need to pick & attend the meetings where you get or can add the most value.

I have also had to use a makeshift alice band on recent occasion, mainly to keep sweaty hair out of face when painting the house.

I’m curious how many times has an cold call email blast led to a sale for you?

I have some knowledge of this marketing tactic, it obviously differs per industry, and I should point out that no one should be 'cold call' email blasting, they should be using subscriber lists for best practice (and legal in eu) reasons.

The open rate for an email campaign is ~25%
The click-through rate is ~5-10%

So conversion rates are obviously pretty small, but there are ways to maximise.

As part of my current interest in rap music I have discovered Akala and holy f*ck is he good. I have no idea whether he's a global hyperstar of the scene or a virtual unknown but he's probably my new favourite rapper.

He's pretty famous, you might be interested in this, where he puts down RichB's man crush:
