My name is Kim and I am trying to get my MBA to re-start up my Language Training Business. Straight out of college, I moved to Brazil to teach English and Spanish. I arrived there with no place to live, no job, no friends, and no idea how I was going to make things work. Within a month I had found a job and a place to live and within a year I had started up my own company. (If you donate I can entertain you with many stories of what that first year entailed exactly). I had originally been teaching English and Spanish at a few schools but after a couple months I saw that I could do it so much better on my own. I wanted to specialize classes for students and teach them in scenarios they would find themselves in. For example, I would take them to a restaurant to teach them about how to order food or take them to the mall to teach them about how to shop (vocabulary, phrases, etc). I created cirriculums for students based on what they wanted to do with their language, their occupation, and time allowed for classes. While I had huge success, I had no clue on how to run a business. Contracts, finances, payroll, marketing, were not my strong suite so let's just say for the first 6 months, I learned the hard way on how things work. It was all worth it though, to see my clients get promotions, travel the world, and get jobs with american companies all thanks to the language and business skills they had learned with me. After 3 years of running this business I decided to move home and get my MBA so that I could re-start up my business with the proper education on the back-end of running a business. After moving home and having difficulty finding jobs because I have "no corporate experience", I've been struggling to save up money to pay for an MBA program. Anything would help! I want to change how people learn languages and prove that women entreprenuers can make it just as much as the men. So help me out please, so that I can pay it forward to others.
