scheduling, mistakes, margins…is not leaving margins. 

This includes me. I pack my calendar with lots of things to do – sessions, blog posts, marketing, presentations. And then something happens like my spring break. Things get in the way and there is no margin for recovery.

About two weeks, I came across an article on margins which I shared in a few Facebook groups. Some of you commented it was something you had considered or an area where you felt you were failing.

This week I have tried to take a realistic look at my schedule.

  • What is a realistic target gross income for my business?
  • What is the mix of offerings that will help me meet this goal?
  • When do I want to hold sessions?
  • What will those sessions be?
  • What do I need to charge for these sessions to meet that gross income goal?
  • What marketing will this require?
  • What are my plans for my blog and for Session Cafe?

Sounding familiar? Whether you are self-employed or an employee, there is a balance that has to occur.

Honestly, one of the deciding factors for my returning to private practice was an employer wanting my position structured in a way that didn’t leave time for preparation.

I need your help! Please comment (or email me) with an answer to this question:

What would you pay me to do that would assist you in creating margins?
