Anyone interested in paid classes?

I've been thinking--I haven't been able to run any classes or take on students lately, because I'm too busy working (retail isn't exactly booming right now). However, if I were compensated for the time, there's no reason I couldn't do so.

How many folks out there would actually be interested in attending classes if they would have to pay a fee to do so? The rate would depend on the length of the class/course.
If you were willing to pay for classes, what would you be willing and able to pay for them?

I'd gladly pay for lessons. I'd be willing to pay up to $50 probably.

Red--I'm sorry, but I don't think Oz (or Kansas) is near Omaha.

Naturally, if I was going to be charging for classes, I'd want to make sure people are learning at a level that acknowledges their current skill--so some sort of evaluation would be in order, and perhaps more than one type of class. (It's not enough for someone to say they're not a beginner--what constitutes a 'beginner' varies tremendously depending on who you're talking to. I've seen some beginners claiming to be advanced, and some advanced folks who consider those I'd personally call intermediate to be beginners).

I, personally, do not believe in profiting off of psychic abilities. Let us face it, one would not need to make money off of classes if they really wanted to profit off of them.

such as...? i'd love to know what things i could consider to make some extra scratch but other than reiki healing (or whatever) i'd be at a loss... it's not like these skills are very marketable.

Hmm... My take would be that everyone has expenses, and the costs involved should at least be covered.

It could be argued that teaching naturally gives a lift anyway to the teacher as well as the pupils. Well, that would depend on the pupils.

You could think of it as danger money.

EDIT: Oddly enough, have a recent local opportunity through Facebook. I'm trying to get back to them but they are being elusive.

I do.
lol...

I don't see any difference between psychic abilities and any other abilities a person might have. This happens to be something I'm good at. I put in a huge amount of time in my life to get there. I'm already making half of my living from it. I like teaching--it helps people out. However, I just don't have time to do it without compensation. So, I'm sounding people out to see if they're interested. If they're not, well...no classes for now, at least not from me. :)
