20 minutes ago my two new trainees just signed contracts (in the presence of a notary) to agree to start teacher training with me in January. This means I absolutely MUST have the new Eastside studio open by April. If I don't, I will have no place for them to teach or fulfill their contracts (the Seattle studio is already full to capacity with staff, no room for them). So the deal is set in stone at this point. Eastside or bust!!
