Never Write These Things in a Professional Email ...

You can't email your boss in the same way you email your best friend. Different people receive different types of treatment. That's why you must be careful with what you write in your emails. According to Vogue, you should never include any of these things in a professional email:

1 I'm Sorry

Some of us get into a habit of apologizing too often. But you don't have to apologize for doing your job. So don't start an email off with this phrase.

2 Just

This word can make your opinion or request seem weak. Try to use strong words to sound like you know what you're talking about.

3 This Might Be a Stupid Question, but...

This is another phrase that can make you sound like you're weak and insecure. Don't start your question off with this. Just ask it.

4 If You Want My Opinion...

Just give your opinion. There's no need to beat around the bush at all.

5 I May Be Wrong but...

Here's another phrase that will weaken the impact of your words. Avoid using it at all costs.

6 Does That Make Sense?

If anyone is confused by your email, they'll ask you about it, regardless of whether or not you include this phrase.

Do you commonly use any of these phrases in professional emails?
