The episode: 4: “What Is Your Time Worth?” with Jason Leenaarts
Jason Leenaarts had a lot going on: a successful brick-and-mortar business, a podcast, a growing roster of online clients. But the one thing he didn’t have was white space in his planner.
“Initially, I wanted as few white spaces as possible,” he says. “I realized I had that all wrong. [I needed] that white space to develop all the things it takes to keep things running successfully.”
But setting aside free time is easier said than done. In this episode, Jason reveals a few ways he protects his white space, including these tips:
-Treat free time like workout time—prioritize it.
-Determine how much (or how little) interaction each client needs for optimum results.
-Set boundaries with clients up front. (Then stick to those boundaries.)
“You have to set the pace,” says Jason. “You have to do that right from the get-go. Otherwise, you’ll become a slave to that itinerary all over again.”
Learn how Jason overcame his hustler’s mentality so he could take back control of his day.
