Winning the Junk Email Fight

We have all had the problem of going through our mailbox to find ir filled with junk. Some of it is spam others are things that we have signed for to at one time that proved to be worthless. Jojo Hedaya is working to win the battle over junk email. He noticed the problem when is partner was not answering his emails. The response was that he could not find them amongst all the other emails he was getting. This led to the creation of the website unroll.me.

Jojo Hedaya; the co-founder of unroll.me along with his partner Josh Rosenwald at age 24, took on the problem of junk email. Unroll.me goes through your email subscriptions allowing you to easily unsubscribe to things you don’t want. It does require you to give them permission to go through your email, but in most cases it is not a problem. First of all, no one is personally going through your email but there is an algorithm that checks for subscriptions. The list of your subscriptions comes to your mailbox once a day at the time you set.

Jojo was born on December 30th, 1989. They both attended Jewish high schools. He attended college but did not actually graduate but switched between two different schools. They started to unroll.me in 2012 and it has been doing quite well with it. At that time they put all of their resources into the project not knowing if it would work or not. Neither one of them would advise a young person to dropout of college and try to start a business but in their case, it worked out.

Their main advice is that it is important that you learn a skill, that you can market and bring to whoever you work for. They both think that it is best to do what you love and if that means starting a business then go ahead and start a business. If it is easier to do what you want to do while working for someone else go ahead and do so.
