Topic: Don’t Settle for Less!

We’ve got a LONG PODCAST today! DON’T SETTLE FOR LESS, PEOPLE! I was talking to a teacher from Swaziland yesterday and she made a very important point when we were giving our stories. I told her, “there was nothing else left for me in that area of life but I kept giving myself false hope due to complacency.”

She said, “that was the turning point. You needed to take that massive leap to up-level yourself because you had finished the last chapter long ago.”

Right now some of you are literally working at jobs that you finished years ago.

That’s the truth.

In today’s sneak peek, I want to give you all a taster in terms of what’s on my business English premium podcast. If you don’t already know, I’ve debut this podcast about two weeks ago and two purchasing packages are available. In this podcast, I’m focusing on the next huge stage of my podcast, which is business English. Interesting times are ahead and we’ve literally come across and oil war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, further fueling the economic meltdown. Cruiselines stocks are down over 50% and airlines are not only on life support, but also completely going bankrupt (FlyBe in England). Low-cost airlines, who relied on “cheap travelers” are running around and trying to regroup from a mega-meltdown, all due to the coronavirus “fears.”

So, how can we protect ourselves? What’s happening to your investments and what can you do to avoid a massive plunge? All on my Business English Premium Podcast in the link down below, as well as other podcasts that are available and uploaded 3-4 times a week.

TOEFL iBT | Part 4 Question | Speaking | Forest Fires

Welcome back to another TOEFL iBT! I’m excited to be bringing you this edition, and remember that there is coaching available (1 on 1) if you’re interested in focus on specific areas! Make sure you inquire in the links down below!

Without further ado, let’s get into this. The audio will be in the podcast and the transcript (tape) is down below. My break down of the audio and how to create a sound answer will be available on in the podcast, so make sure you tune in!

Many environmentalists believe that forest fires are part of the forests natural life cycle. Fires can help maintain a broader diversity of habitats for wildlife. They also believe that deliberately setting fires in wild areas can restore ecosystems and prevent wildfires from raging out of control. I know that sounds false, but in fact, it’s true. Without a regularly occurring fire, the forest grows extremely dense and becomes a massive source of fuel, so future fires will be much more destructive. Therefore, small fires prevent major fires from occurring. In addition, the ashes caused by the fire are rich in minerals, so it makes the soil more nutrient-rich, thusly more productive. And finally, with the canopy more open, the sunlight can get through to the forest floor, which helps stimulate small plant growth. Another interesting fact about how trees can benefit from a forest fire is regarding some species of pine trees. Some pine trees require a fire to release its pollen and therefore fertilize to make pine cones. The most famous one of these is the jack pine around the Great Lakes.
