It's coming towards the end of the year, so naturally all you can see all over social media is "plan this" and "plan that". Plan your launch. Plan your programs. As a Type-A personality, I'm all about the planning, but I'm also trying to listen to my instincts more. The pull inside me. The last two weeks I've felt a pull to physically clear out my office of all the crap and clutter so that I could clear out my mind, too (= 3 garbage bags full of shredded paper!🗑). I realized that I have tons of free tools on my website to help you organize your business, but they're spread out all over the place, so I wanted to get them all organized into one post.
The tools that I'm sharing today all seem a little ... unnecessary. They don't have anything to do with actually taking clients and generating income, but really, they do.
You see, when you first start your holistic health business, you might have learned about the one-on-one client model. You work with a client, they pay you an hourly rate. So when you were in school or preparing for your business, you could calculate what you could potentially make by figuring you'd work 40 hours a week times whatever you charged per hour.
But then you started your business and realized you were doing more admin-type stuff than anything else: emails, bookkeeping, social media. On average, you'll probably be spending 80% of your time on marketing and admin, and 20% actually seeing clients.
The point of the tools below are to help you get organized with the 80% crap that is taking up the majority of your time.
When you can streamline that part, you can free up more time to:
- take clients one-on-one
- create a group program so you can get paid more per hour
- develop an online program
- work your network marketing biz to create residual income
THOSE are the only things that actually make you money. Not social media, not emails, not writing blog posts ... but they are necessary evils to keep people lined up and ready to work with you.
Get organized with your marketing (and other busy work) and you'll have more time for people to pay you. It's a simple as that.
