Although excited and knowing she has a lot to offer these children, she’s nervous that she might not have enough regular clientele to float her own practice. She’d also like people to find her on their own as she doesn’t want to be accused of poaching!
As well, because she’s currently a one-man-band of sorts, she also finds that explaining her process over and over and answering the same questions again and again to new clients, takes up a lot of her day.
As if that wasn’t enough of a time-suck, she also needs to carve out some time to stay on top of her session notes, invoicing, keep her bookkeeping tidy for the taxman, and get her clients personal files organised.
This leaves her less time than she’d like to actually treat her clients!
Samantha’s case is one I’ve seen so many times.
There are always worries that the work will dry up.
She doesn’t have an online presence and even if she did, no one would know about it!
Her processes aren’t streamlined so she’s losing time trying to tackle admin.
What I did for Samantha was sit down with her for a chat over a cup of tea.
Samantha told me her worries about getting clients, her concerns about making enough so she can cover her expenses, and her need to free up a little more time in the day so after working, driving around, and doing admin, she gets a few hours a week for herself.
