• Schedule a 90-minute time slot for a 60-minute massage. This will give you enough time to wash your hands, clean the restroom, change linens and to check and return voicemail, all without pressure. Then you’ll be a shining example of “relaxed” when your next client arrives.
  • Use silent alarms. For example, set instant notifications on your computer desktop reminding you what needs to be handled between clients.
  • Schedule a time twice-a-month or weekly for accounting to verify all income tax information. This will set you up early before handing all your information over to your CPA at the end of the year.
  • Get a head start on advertising. If you have an idea that corresponds to a certain event or holiday, start now and have it ready for next year. For the winter holiday season, start in July by printing up postcards and flyers. For birthdays, try to get ahead, too. In September, print up October and November materials to set it in motion.
  • Have your schedule with you at all times–whether it’s an actual book or stored in your phone. This enables you to run errands and schedule clients as they call from your forwarded work telephone number.
