    Money isn't everything.

    Good luck Bruce whomever you may be.
    Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
    The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.

    Personally, I'd be more impressed if Bruce told us he was disposing of his stock/shares in TEFL Int'l as well. Just 'cuz he's quitting a main board position doesn't mean he won't have a background influence in how the business is run in future.

    As far as I know TEFL Int is a registered chatity. If he has made millions then he could well be in deep doodoo with the tax man!

    Not according to the financials he submits to the government. It's a non-profit venture and I think Bruce has always maintained his salary was something like 40,000 baht per month. So no, at least according to the law, he didn't make millions.

    I'm sure he'll be very successful in his new venture. He's got a great knack for marketing. It's that knack for marketing combined with a great TEFL trainer that has made TEFL International what is it.
    Are you actually reading this? Do you think I care?

    That’s why you'll remain a peon.


    Smart investors invest in smart people (workers). We could care less what business it entails. So long as there is a track record of success and receipts to prove it – startup money is trivial.

    Just like stocks.

    But this is all probably way over your head.

    Re: My fairwell to TEFL

    Tefl International?
    Are they the outfit that used to advertise their course in the Bangkok Post's Jobs section in order to hook teachers looking for work?

    If that's the case, then I say good riddance. One less snake oil salesman in Thailand.
    Game? This wasn't meant to be a game!!!...NEVER!!

    Good luck to you. Hey---if someone's new, a TEFL course is a must lest you become a co-worker teacher.

    So exactly what do you know about TEFL Int'l? How many grads have you spoken to? What do you know about their course? What do you know about their instructors? Do you have any idea how they compare to all the cowboy outfits in Thailand?

    Nice post

    Re: My fairwell to TEFL

    Unsubstantiated allegation deleted , in my estimation, he ran his businesses to make a quick buck rather than establish a good name. In fact I would recommend on his past track record the only line of business open to him now is opening an EP or MEP.
