English with Kirsty – episode 212

Maribel Aburto on founding a new business and using language skills to reach new clients

You can listen to episode 212 here:

Two things really impressed me about Maribel’s story:

  1. If you want something and it doesn’t exist, create the opportunity yourself! You’ll see how this worked out for Maribel as we talk about her story and how she built her business.
  2. Having your own business and using additional languages in business can be a way to help you develop and improve those language skills. Don’t wait till everything is perfect! Do your best, but the learning comes along the way as you use the additional languages in real situations. I need to remember this one too!
