People say that the secret to success is a lot of hard work and a little luck. I would also say that the support of those around us plays no small role. This week, exhausted from all the preparations but excited to set out on an new adventure, I have also been filled with gratitude on a daily basis. I am thankful to the three brand new students who started this week and who said that ‘of course’ they would be coming again next week. I truly appreciate all the best wishes and votes of confidence received from friends and family all over the world. I am so lucky to have met the lady who offered me a classroom to teach in on my days away from Kishiwada. I can’t believe that one of my students is willing to drive over an hour from Osaka city to attend my lessons. And, it made my day yesterday when one of the most recent additions to the White Rose family told me that our lesson is the thing that she most looks forward to every week.
White Rose is a small one-woman business. I won’t always get it right. Things won’t always be perfect. But with your help, I will always do my best.
