Setting boundaries in your coaching business is important for success.

Many coaches have boundaries set up about their coaching hours, the type of clients they work with, and what they charge. But there are other boundaries that need to be set up in order to maintain a successful business. This blog post will discuss 5 boundaries you should have in place to ensure your coaching business runs smoothly!

Boundary #01: Set boundaries for how much time you spend on your business

It’s important to set boundaries for how much time you spend on your coaching business. You don’t want it to take over your life! Determine the hours that you will work each day and week, and stick to them. This will help maintain a healthy work-life balance.

Boundary #02: Set boundaries around the type of clients you work with

This is a biggie! The boundaries that you set in your coaching business will determine its success, so make sure to be selective when choosing the types of clients you want to work with. You can have specific boundaries for how many new or returning clients you take on each month, what type of services you offer, or how much money they must have to work with you.

Boundary #03: Set boundaries for how much you charge

Charging what you’re worth is a boundary that should be set in your coaching business. Don’t sell yourself short! Determine the rates you want to charge and stick to them. Remember, you are providing a valuable service and should be compensated accordingly.

Boundary#04: When you are available to clients?

One of the boundaries you should set in your coaching business is when you are available to clients. This will help to manage client expectations and ensure that everyone is on the same page. You can decide what hours you are available for calls, emails, or chat sessions each day.

Boundary #05: What type of communication methods will you use?

Another boundary you should set in your coaching business is the type of communication methods you use. Will you only communicate via email? Phone? Skype? Chat? Decide which methods work best for you and your clients, and stick to them.

One of the ways that you can do this successfully is to ensure you have things set up in your business such as a Welcome Guide you send to clients as part of your on-boarding and canned email responses that are sent automatically. A CRM like Dubsado can help you establish and keep the boundaries that you make.

Setting boundaries is important in any profession but especially so in a coaching business. By setting boundaries, coaches can manage client expectations, protect their time, and establish a successful business.
