Tips On How To Arrange Your Files and Folders To Save Time And Money 

- Scan your email messages: The email scan is a must; always scan downloaded files before you open them. One of the reasons we recommend this is because you may get a virus emailed to you.

- Create folders to save your valuable email messages: I lost valuable ebooks, softwares, emails and some other useful information just because I didn't create folders to save and organize my emails.

I was storing my emails in my inbox. As an idiot, when cleaning my email from junk messages I delete accidentally (without knowing the true value of what I’m deleting) valuable information. Or, I spend important time just because I can’t locate a message when I need it.

- Save your downloads files in a special folder: I call mine "downloads", inside this main folder I created subfolders for each general type, one for my ebooks, one for my articles, one for my softwares and so on. Also I created sub-sub folders for each category.

As soon as you receive a gift or you buy any thing….

1) Don't forget to save it in its designed sub-sub folder for easy reference.

2) Open your downloaded files read them or check them out, and apply what fits your business immediately.

3) Don't let anything for tomorrow, do it today.

4) Create a folder in your email program and name it for example “email marketing ecourse”. Filter, or move every ecourse you receive to the same folder.

5) Create a google drive account to save save all your files and folders
