Your boundaries are as much a part of your brand as your logo, color scheme, tagline, or copy: Your boundaries define your business. This is for you if you love your work in sexuality so much you can’t imagine doing anything else, and this is for you if you remember that passion and want to end frustration, irritation, and a lack of focus or motivation.

In this session for hands-on and hands-off sexuality professionals, you will learn:

  • How to stop bouncing between feeling like you’re always at work and feeling guilty for not working
  • How much money being “nice” is costing you (and business models that keep the work accessible to marginalized communities)
  • When saying no to our clients helps us serve them best—and how to say no without feeling like a bad professional
  • How to walk the ethical line between offering services you enjoy and trying to get your own needs met at work
  • Techniques for moving out of burn-out and into sustainability, plus steps you can take to prevent or reduce burn-out in the future
  • What to do when you’re in a blurry boundary situation with a client, and how to make your client interactions easier and less stressful going forward
  • How to stop working with clients that make your teeth clench and start working with clients you enjoy serving
  • Ways to reinvent your brand or your practice (including what services you offer) without losing your current client base—yes, it can be done!
