Welcome to the “Spring Clean Your Airbnb Challenge.”
I need to confirm you, not in a religious way. Just in an email way. Can you believe we still need to do this? But, we need to confirm your email address with Mailchimp.
To complete the subscription process, please click the link in the email you we just sent you.
You should receive an email from Webinar Jam. If you don’t, CHECK YOUR SPAM OR JUNK FOLDER (or “promotions tab” for gmail accounts) If it doesn’t show up within an hour, contact me, so I can make sure your correct email address is in our system.
You might need to Whitelist me.. And no, that’s NOT a new stain removal laundry product.
A whitelist is essentially a list of people, including companies, you want to hear from—because sometimes your email service will block my messages and you will not know all my groovy information. It happens!
But YOU have all the power to fix this. Let me show you how.
LET ME BE IN YOUR SAFE LIST AKA AS WHITELIST.

How to whitelist your email
If you haven’t been able to GO! Due to spam issues, etc., below are instructions to make my email “spam” proof for some of the more popular email services. Yes, I did a lot of research.
If your email provider isn’t here, you can either:
A- go to this link and see if your email provider is there More Email Providers Whitelist Information:
B- Search “How to whitelist and “name of email provider” and you will get instructions.
There’s a really good chance our emails won’t make it to your inbox UNLESS you do this in Gmail.
Open up your gmail and find an email from “firstname.lastname@example.org”
Drag this email to the “primary” tab of your inbox.
A box pops up and asks if you want it to do this automatically in the future… hit YES!
And now you’ll get my lovely emails. Yay!
Select “Mail” from the top menu and then “Preferences” from the drop menu.
In the “Preferences” window, click the “Rules” icon.
Click the “Add Rule” button.
In the “Rules” window, type a name for your rule in the “Description” field.
