The Clients Who Taught Me
Starting out can be tough. You don’t have the experience you need to prove yourself. But how do you get it unless someone gives you a chance?
My first experience in self-employment came when I lived in Peru where everyone except me spoke Spanish. I taught English at a university but decided I wanted to teach privately as well. Although I had been a teacher for a few years, I was young and had never run my own business.
I met an English teacher who wanted to learn more English to help her be a better teacher. She couldn’t afford my services so asked if she put together a group of teachers, would I teach them. Of course! She put together my first group teaching contract outside of my work at the university.
Every weekend, we all gathered around her dining room table and I conducted English classes for English teachers. From there, I went on to work with different groups and individuals. I have learned a great deal about being an entrepreneur since then and will always be grateful to those amazing teachers who helped me get my start.
