turning away clients

My body was so messed up that instead of doing my usual massage for lesson free trade, I ended up paying my student for a full hour and a half massage today. Most of the damage was done from the one day last week that I had three private lessons, a regular group class and then my own private pole practice...all in one day. The human body just wasn't designed for 5 hours of dancing and physical activity in one day. For some reason my brain seems to think so, just because I'm being paid for it.

I have GOT to start limiting the number of private lessons I offer. I have got to learn to be comfortable with turning away clients and money. Sometimes being in control of your own destiny and your own income is not all it's cracked up to be. If I don't learn to start turning down money, I'm not going to have anything but money to show for my life. My friends and my health are more important, I want more time for those.
