I am currently a physician in a specialty that affords good work/life balance.

In a nutshell, I want to transition to working part time as a doctor and part time as a cob teacher.

My wife and I have a thorough education in cob building and we also have a few buildings under our belts. I feel capable of teaching people how to build as well as we know how ourselves, and I simply want to spend more of my time on this stuff and have a way to allow my family to be more directly involved in my life.

However, I am not sure how to get the process started. I am also not sure what the legal situation would be like, from a business standpoint, from a liability standpoint or for the mere fact that I intend to spend about half of my time teaching a skill that is quasi-legal at best - but it's something I really want to do.

Any input would be appreciated.

Well. What state are you in? That's going to affect the legality of both the teaching and the building (not to mention taxes and length of season).
 
Why is the word "abbreviation" so long? And this ad is so short?
