Why No Automation?

Dear Readers,

A few weeks ago, I received a very valid question concerning the class or, more specifically, the enrollment procedure for class. The young woman asked, in sum, why I didn't have an automated enrollment process on my website. Certainly, she said, I would have more students if I had an automated enrollment process. And certainly, she is correct.

The fact of the matter is I don't want just anyone in the class. I want to become acquainted with a student first, learn a bit about her, and then mutually decide if going forward would be a happy-making thing.

I usually only accept a few students a year, and that's the way I like it :-) I'd rather give a great deal of personalized attention to a half dozen students rather than try the mass-market approach. Now, to be sure, I'm not criticizing FW teachers who accept great numbers of students. Each FW teacher decides on her own policies and procedures; that is her right.

Now, go shed some joy around!

Agape always,
Cynthia
