When is it appropriate to text in business? When you’re running unavoidably late for a meeting with a client and know they won’t have access to email, but you need to give them the courtesy to let them know you will be a few minutes late. Then, and only then, is it appropriate to send a text message to notify them.

What do you wish someone had told you earlier in your career? That you need the proper support system in place—both in terms of business and in terms of your home life—if you want to be successful.
