It is my time - all the time
Now that I am responsible as a sole practitioner for all of my time, I have learned that I must make time in order to charge my time. All the time I previously counted as billable time now has to be allocated. There’s meeting time, networking time, driving time, corresponding time, and client time, not all of which is chargeable.
