Fancy Hobo

Today, I decided to change my name on YouTube to Fancy Hobo and then proceeded to send an email to a well-admired professor. Little did I know my email was linked to YouTube. Yes, Fancy Hobo sent a very professional email about registration for Grad School. FML

These accounts are free. It’s always a smart idea to have one that is professional looking for dealing with things like this. They can easily be linked together so you only have to deal with one inbox. And you can make it look like it’s coming from the other email address instead. Works well. Takes a few minutes to set up and a little getting use to to make sure it’s being sent from the email address you want them to see. But it’s too easy to forget that we put goofy stuff on personal accounts. Always best to have personal and professional addresses. I’ve seen resumes just tossed because of stuff like that. They figure the person won’t be careful enough with business emails.
