Greetings, Ninja!

Quick poll: how often do you hear these phrases throughout the day?

“Question for you…”
“Can I ask you something?”
“Do you know who/what/where/when/why…”

We’d bet our nunchucks that it’s at least once an hour. As the resident Ninja, you’re expected to have all the answers. And most of the time you do!

But what happens when you need a bit of advice yourself? So many admins are a department of one, which can make getting Ninja-specific guidance tricky.

Enter Susy, OfficeNinjas’ official advice columnist! She’s your go-to for everything from the most effective scheduling protocols to navigating awkward office politics.

Got a burning question? Go ahead—Ask Susy!

Rock on!
