We're Starting a School!
I haven't said anything about it here because it seemed so far off, but we've been working on this for Several months and opening day will be pretty Soon now, so it's a perfect S topic!
I say "School" and it is, but to be Specific we are Starting a new English language learning center. In our town there are only three Such Schools, and they are maxed out with waiting lists, so it Seems like a need that we can fill.
The building is ready, curricula Set for our Start, and Staff is being hired. We will Start with a Summer term, and hopefully be able to add more teachers and classes at the end of Summer for the after School Sessions in the fall.
Our goal is to be the premier language center in town. Keep class Sizes Small to really focus on each Student's learning. Pay well and manage from a western perspective, to attract well-qualified foreign teachers. (Western teachers Sometimes Struggle against Asian direction and rules, so western management is attractive.)
That is what my life is full of these days.
That, and writing, querying, reading, and trying to Save my Sanity.
Have you ever Started your own business? How long were you preparing for it before Opening Day?
