Every day was at least 1 hour of emails and then the 3-5 would be on, let's say, a Sunday night.

It's really hard to keep up on. Once you fall behind, it's a constant catch-up that never ends. It's just one person, doing everything, from work to customer service. Sometimes, you just gotta let some slide and unfortunately not respond.
I understand that... but it only takes two seconds to send a message that says "I'm full on commissions. Sorry." Even if its short and unprofessional, thats better than being left waiting.
