How old do you need to be to learn sewing machine repair? Some of our students are mature adults even a few seniors interested in a retirement hobby or business. Others are middle-aged people seeking to enhance their current careers, start something new, or become more proficient. The really smart ones, however, are much younger. These are the ones who see the huge potential for a life long income, a practical way to pay college expenses, or another skill set to add to their possibilities. It has been especially exciting to see older teens and younger twenties attend our live institutes. They soak it up and are ready to run with their expanded potential. We have had whole families join us for training. Recently, I had the opportunity to visit with one of our barely 21 young men toward the end of the program. I was impressed by his enthusiasm and confidence. I wonder what if I had started when I was his age?
