Plenty of Time for You Means More Energy for Clients

Like many solopreneurs, I've learned the hard way about the importance of getting myself on my own priority list.  I spent many years letting my business and clients run my time.  Despite my best intentions to stick to a schedule, if I client called at the last minute or wanted to work on a Sunday or late in the evening, I'd drop or cancel everything and squeeze them in. 

When I started working with a marketing coach, she showed me how not scheduling separate time for marketing, administrative work, clients and ME was actually hurting my business.
So here's my new schedule.
Mondays are now Marketing Mondays (I'm fond of alliteration so that worked out quite well!). I work on creating new products and programs, blogging, ezine broadcasts, getting administrative work to my virtual assistant and conduct interviews with potential clients and guest speakers for teleclasses.
Tuesday through Thursday (and sometimes Fridays) are client days.  I block out client time from 9-noon or 9:30-12:30 and 1 or 1:30 to 5ish.  I may have evening phone coaching clients on these days but I don't work past 7 p.m.
Fridays are self-improvement days.  I won't schedule clients on Fridays unless absolutely necessary for a time sensitive event and I don't even do that more than once or twice a month.  I reserve Friday for networking, lunch with friends, online classes or home study (I'm usually always working on continuing education or certifications). 
Your schedule will reflect your own workstyle, but just make sure to schedule yourself as priority #1 - you'll not only have more energy for your clients, but lots of motivation and creativity to grow your business.
