“I realized that Inbox Zero lessens my anxiety around everything that's going on in my business life. I have a lot of stuff going on, and I feel like I'm super well aware of everything when I'm at inbox zero. It's helped me kind of find that balance, and just to be more productive.” – Chris Zarou

ABOUT CHRIS ZAROU

Chris Zarou is CEO of Visionary Music Group. He found and signed multi-platinum and Grammy award nominated rapper Logic, launching an incredible career. What's more incredible is that Chris did this after he was rejected from every major music label after trying to break into the industry as an intern. The common response that he got back was that he lacked enough experience. He even got a rejection letter from Def Jam, who later became the record label to sign Logic.
