    It's very refreshing to hear about such a fine young man. They are still out there but main stream media makes them harder to find. Congrats.

    I hope to hear back the next time someone joins and hear how you approached all the cursory details.

    I never said I wouldn't be interested, at all - just less than you. And that works out well, as you might be a better fit for him anyway. Of course, with hindsight, who wouldn't be happy to have a student who has fit in well and continued training past where most quit - and making good progress. Good on both of you!

    It just goes to show what a guessing game it is with students.

    I asked him last night what he remembered about contacting me and said mostly that he was nervous. I pointed out to him that he didn't ask about cost. He said that he was worried about it, but really wanted to train and was surprised that it was much less than he expected.

    What I strive for really in this process is for the prospective student and I to both learn enough about each other to make our own best decisions. I direct a lot of people to other schools or teachers in this process, when I think that's best or sometimes just to see if they'll go.

    I've been wanting to convert my site to Wordpress and I may do so this year and in the process update my language on things like dues.

    Nice to see you back, ShortBridge. Even nicer to see that you're still teaching.
