  10. You know, the funny thing is that when I first started leathercraft, I begged and begged people to teach me in exchange for free labor. That never happened and like many of us...I had to teach myself. The love of it all helped me persevere on long nights where I messed up a project or did not know how to proceed. even this forum right here helped me TREMENDOUSLY! Well, I had a young man that is 16 years old approach me offering the same thing I sought 4 years ago. A mentor and an apprenticeship...a "whatever it takes to get in here" attitude. After two weeks, he started whining about being paid, etc. So I started paying him and as soon as I began paying him monetarily and bought him his own tools to use, he started not showing up to work, no motivation, lack of interest, yawning all day, no initiative to create a project, etc. I believe this kid wanted a "JOB." Not an honest trade in which I devoted all of my time to teach him (which IMO is an opportunity of a lifetime). He had every tool he could ever need and his own coach. BUT, he blew it. He lasted about 5 weeks and then quit . It is hard to find people who love this craft so much that they are committed to mastering it. I am ok working solo, but would truly appreciate someone willing to not waste my time and apprentice under me, and grow long term with my business. payed or unpayed...
