When you’re influential and sought-out as a result of 25 years of expertise and leadership in your field, email can become an overwhelming challenge. Your email inbox is filled to overflowing, the messages don’t stop arriving, and your mind turns to thoughts of email bankruptcy. Great success sometimes looks a little like this, as Kim Goodwin can attest. Happily, Fluxible communications with Kim were able to survive the inbox deluge, and we’re excited to announce that Kim is returning to Fluxible.
