Hi, everyone, how are you? Long time no talk. I hope that you’re doing well wherever you’re at in the world. Today, we’re going to do another Chats with Shana episode, and we’re going to talk about my language company that flopped. In this conversation, you’ll hear all about the idea that got me and two of my friends to travel around the world and try and start a company. You’ll also hear about starting a business in New York City. You’ll hear about becoming a digital nomad and some lessons I learned about starting a business in general.

If you are planning on starting a company in the United States ever, or simply are interested in the vocabulary and phrases used to describe this journey, stay tuned. At the end. I’ll also share a bunch of interesting and great resources available today for you to find native English speakers near you.
