Specializing in yochien teaching

Unread post by User Banned » Sun Dec 02, 2007 2:50 am

I currently teach yochien classes for a company, but would like to do it for myself instead. Since I've become rather good at it I find it quite fun. The company charges an arm and a leg for the lessons but pays me in fingernails.

I imagine that a yochien would be very careful about who they employ and contract with and so I think having some sort of legitimate registered business with liability insurance and a catchy name like "Bob the Bunny's Busy English Fun Boat" would be imperative.

How involved is it to start up such a legit op? What are the hoops the bunny has to jump through? Is it worthwhile? Cheers.

This forum is a great idea BTW.

I recommend just seeing how much yochien work you can muster up before investing in insurance and stuff. I taught yochiens privately but never thought of paying money to make it official or whatever.

Bump: still doing the same old crap?

I'm looking at doing something similar.
