Protect your personal time

Ultimately, to avoid burnout, it's good to establish boundaries for yourself and others around you. Choose your "office hours" and stick to them.

By having one day off per week, it is less likely that you will experience burnout. Constant overworking will only cause your work and product to suffer.

When you have a clear understanding of your business financials, work efficiently, and prioritize your own time, you can tame the tendency to overwork.

To keep your clients returning:

  • Interact with your clients in a personable way. Don’t just focus on the results; build your relationships. Get to know your clients, their challenges, and what their goals are. 
  • Find out what other projects they might need help with and offer support. If you don’t hear of any follow-up opportunities during your initial stint, take initiative and tell your employer that you’re open to working on more projects in the future. 
  • Use your expertise to improve other parts of their business. If they don’t have anything that needs working on, suggest other areas that you could improve. 
  • Never over-promise and then under-deliver
  • Always get testimonials from your clients.
