Have you ever made a bad decision? After you ever steered someone in a direction that you regretted — in any facet of your life? See, when clients lose money and when things go back, people look for an outlet to blame most times. In today’s podcast, we talk about that and saw awesome breakdowns in the Retail Market, the economic outlook in Japan in regards to buying yen, and where Nasdaq is going. This was very eye-opening and exciting for me, so you guys better get ready!
To top off the culture-clashing, problem-week, I’ve brought on my favorite Business English teacher, Ebru, to dive even further into the concept. This podcast has it all: from our personal experiences, to what to do, and even job interviewing questions. We will give you cues on what you see during the job interview, what questions to ask, and other techniques in the workplace. Enjoy!
Today’s podcast is going to be a situational one where you hear a couple of individuals within a company ‘pass the buck’ around. So, when this happens, you need to figure out a way to tackle the problem, and if you have someone in your department that knows how to do follow-ups, have meetings (successful ones), and others, you know they may be getting paid the big bucks. If there isn’t a manager within your company or a voice within your household who do not possess these leadership characteristics, it’s up to you to develop them and make a career out of them! Let’s dive in!
In the midst of the chaos at the beginning of April, I not only had the most successful month with my online business in April but I also made May THE most successful month of my online business. How did I do this? Well, I don’t worry anymore…I look at everything opportunistically now. I know when one person leaves, three others come. One job fails, another three come. I wouldn’t have believed in a million years after a shutdown and losing a high-paying client, that I would be able to do this. So, let’s dive into the mentality!
In today’s podcast, we’ll be talking about five ways in which we connect with people. You’ll have to choose which one is the best for you and of course, join the discussion on my IG link down below (or Podia!). In addition to that, we have a graphic designer (originally from Hong Kong but has been living in the UK for decades) who will talk about telephoning, work-life balance and several other things. Today is a special treat!
I had spoken to one of my students and she said, “today is probably the last week I’ll be learning with you.”
I said, “oh, hell no. What do I NOT know?”
Over the next 10 minutes, and to my amazement, I sold her a massive package to continued studying English without the middle-man.
The middle-man boosted packages for online learning — not once, not twice — but THREE TIMES! In the midst of an ongoing pandemic, he literally shot at his own foot and I profited from it.
In today’s podcast, it’s not only about going for the low-hanging fruit, but also giving learning alternatives to people who are willing to pay….but not to THEM!
I was invited into a group full of Business English Podcast trainers/coaches, and I was fortunate enough to meet Ebru — a business English trainer in the UK. Oh, there’s so much in this podcast, from her moving to the UK, to learning a lot from her father that inspired her to establish the Growth Mindset. We also did a speaking activity to shine some beautiful life on our past experiences (relatable to IELTS Speaking Part II) and her Rite of Passage in Vietnam (such as what I had in Da Lat two years ago, too). This was a ray of light, and I hope you guys enjoy this!
Welcome to the final episode of Season 6! Boy, it felt like a one hundred-episode season because it took a long time just to get to episode 40! HA! But wow, so happy that it was well-received by many of you out there. Although it takes a week for podcast plays to eclipse 100 plays per episode, I’ve gotten hundreds of more cities around the globe to tune in. Well, let’s finish this season with a BANG before going into Season 7!
Because of big tech companies and social media giants, all of which are clamping down on disinformation, older generations are pointing fingers at why the internet is so bad. Conspiracy theory-pushing YouTube channels have a free-flowing cesspool of comments stating, “I got off social media 3 months ago; best decision I’ve ever made.” Yet, you’re still on social media, on YouTube, commenting and sharing your opinion?
There are two sides of a talisman that you must pick up every day — PMA and NMA. One is being positive and the other one is being negative. The ample amount of opportunity that’s readily available to everyone who knows a specific skill online — is something we’ve never had in our past.
If you could fully utilize and use the inter, social media platforms and other pieces of technology to help better humanity, then you wouldn’t be part of the pity party.
Back in 2017, I had a boss that attacked me in more ways than one, threatening me by saying, “if you want to continue working here, we need to have a conversation.”
I had shivers go down my back, and at that exact time, I quit.
First, NEVER be disrespected by anyone who threatens you in that way. Second, the ridiculous conversation we had was all about his feelings and nothing about concrete facts. I went on to quit and it was the GREATEST decision I ever made.
In today’s podcast, we’re going to listen to a workplace scenario situation and dissect if it was a good conversation or not, as well as other pointers that will help you in all your relationships.
