I’m back. Working on putting out fires, and getting everything ready for the next semester. There’s a lot of things to take care of, ordering stuff for a new class, administrative stuff, things for continuous quality improvement.
And trying to take care of old students. I know the economy is bad, and I’ve got several individuals, current and former students who are desperate and begging for tutoring hours. It’s really not that kind of job, I have a cadre of people and I try my best to distribute the work fairly for all of them. I keep a referrals list, so I don’t overload anyone and everybody gets a fair chance at the wheel. It’s sad, I have more than one person asking for as many hours as possible, and I just can’t give them the time they need, the Uni would go broke if I did that.
What I’d like to do is have a big enough forensic consulting business to hire these folks and help them make a living. I don’t. I have a big enough forensic consulting business to take four people out to dinner. Once or twice. They can do the work, I don’t have enough work to give them.
