Economic Recovery (anecdotal evidence)
Posted by midiguru on April 16, 2009
The economy is starting to turn around.
You know how I can tell? Three months ago my student roster had fallen from 22 students to 15. The students who weren’t serious about it had mostly dropped out, leaving only the ones who are more committed. But this week I’ve had three calls from students who want to start lessons — two returning students and one brand new one. I picked up two new students last month, and I’ve also had inquiries from a couple who haven’t yet scheduled lessons.
This is, to be sure, only anecdotal evidence. It’s also way too small a sample to be statistically significant. But like most of the human race, I’m easily impressed by short-term gains.
Just wanted to share the good news.
