The two students who showed up were great, but unfortunately they were also at opposite ends of the language experience spectrum. So I need to split them into two groups… two groups of one!
My problem is I’m a hard worker, a good idea generator, a good teacher, good at communicating in three languages, but I don’t know the first thing about advertising and I really don’t want to have to learn.
Sometimes I resent the fact that I am supposed to handle so many aspects of a situation instead of being able to focus on something.
But I guess that’s what happens when you strike out on your own. If you stay on the beaten path then you have some pre-established means of assistance to take care of some of the more mundane, less interesting aspects, like getting the word out. But when you begin to forge an alternate route, you spend a lot of time trying to reinvent the wheel.
So far, it is worth it to have the freedom and control to do it my own way.
