Additionally, this industry tends to have a customer base that is generally resistant to change. This is a battle I had been fighting since I came on the scene back in 2008. It’s understandable. Teachers were comfortable with the materials they’d been using for decades and here I was, a newbie, trying to convince them it was worth trying something new. One colleague in the industry advised me years ago that it takes at least a decade for any new method to make any significant dent in the market and I found this to be very true. So a lot of patience has been banked into this endeavor. I’m happy to say that now after almost a decade into our existence, it is rare that I come across people who have never heard of us.
