Last week I gave a free trial lesson at Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi in Amagasaki City, Hyogo Prefecture. My trial student joined! I asked her how she had found out about my school. She said that she had first seen me doing flyers at Hankyu-Tsukaguchi station and had received a flyer there two or three years ago. Since then she had also seen me shopping with my wife at DAIEI, a supermarket in Tsukaguchi. In addition, a boy of hers goes to the same school as a seven year old student that I teach at my school! Wow! She also lives in the next door building! How convenient for her! It was great to hear that people in my community notice me and know what I do. I usually wear a Smith’s jacket or t-shirt to make sure they do!

Derek, Thank you for your posting. 100% correct. Being known as a person who provides positive input within your community is of paramount importance. You have been there in Tsukaguchi for some time now and your school is well known. Years of doing flyers, sporting the company colours in your daily wear to show people you are proud of what you do and just plain being nice day in day out have paid off. Well done.
