Job burnout is genuine whether you work for a large company or yourself.

It may seem to come on suddenly, but these easy-to-miss signs start slowly and snowball until you question if you still want to continue being a coach.
No one is immune to this dilemma, but there are ways you can prevent it from happening.
3. Plan your days. Use the time blocking or the Pomodoro method to focus on your projects during each day. At the end of each day, create a list for the following day. Write in a journal about any negative events that happened and how you can handle these situations better in the future. Knowing exactly what you have to do the following day allows you to leave work at the office (even if it’s just closing the door of your home office) and enjoy the evening with your family and friends.
