Managing Time and Being Available for Clients MR


I have 7 clients and am struggling to balance honoring the work schedule that I have chosen and being available for clients. I have not advertised, but continue to get client via referral. I want to work T, W, Th from 9:00-2:00. Still, I have people who want to be coached in the evenings, or on a day off. As a new coach, I want to coach my face off, but I also want to restrain myself to the work hours that I have identified. How do you balance flexibility to serve clients and restraint?

Now Model
C: My available coaching hours are T, W, Th from 9:00-2:00. Clients request other times
T: I don’t want to lose clients or seem too rigid
F: Anxious
A: I keep adding or allowing clients to reschedule outside of my work hours. I worry that I will burn out and neglect my family
R: I lose me as my first client to coach ???

Desired Model
C: My available coaching hours are T, W, Th from 9:00-2:00 Clients request other times
T: ???
F: Confident
A:
R: I coach between T, W, Th from 9:00-2:00 ???

I think that I think that there is right or wrong way to do this and I doubt myself because I don’t believe any thoughts that would create confidence.
