I never thought I’d be saying this, but I’ll be having two homes for the first time in my life. If you guys don’t follow my podcast, which is down below, you’re missing out on a journey. I know living in this other province (which made news earlier this year due to a tragic event) is going to bring in a lot more viewers and people who are interested. I never thought I’d be traveling again in Thailand. This is the first time going to another province in more than 3 years and the first time living in another since moving to Rangsit 6 years ago (not counting BKK as a move because it’s connected to Rangsit).
I don’t have an industrial-aged mindset. I’m not going to be told what to do. However, after COVID ravaged businesses and shuttered doors across BKK, along with stopping schools for four months, the innovative businesses are the only ones that survived: AR, VR, eLearning, eLearning Developmental Platforms, Testing Centers.
So, this move was supposed to happen in April, but then shutdowns and quarantines happen. When the government began announcing slow openings, that’s when two of my business partners quickly made way to Korat and opened their testing center. What this did was snagged all students from the northeast part of Thailand, as well as the north and stripped all of BKK of students.
Just think about it. If you needed to go from Los Angeles to Las Vegas (four hours drive) to take a test — but then a testing center in Bakersfield, California (less than an hour away from LA) had opened, would you still go to Vegas? Exactly.
And just like that….almost a hundred students and a ton of work for myself.
Will BKK get back to normal? Doubtful. Would I negate work in Korat to pick up a class or two in Bangkok? Absolutely NOT. My goal is to not only expand my brand but also to go where opportunities are. That’s exactly what I’m doing.
So, here’s to Korat and a new docu-series!
