The ocean and Monika.:D The difference : almost 10 years.
Another difference: in the first picture I was eager to get started another 3 years of teaching as a VIF teacher.
Many of you might not know that I ended up in the US after applying for a program that imported teachers from other countries to teach in subjects areas that suffered from teacher shortage. How I found that program is another story. :D
It was a long application process with lots of steps for the first time, but the second time around I actually found my position from home by reaching out to schools that had openings for ESL teachers.
I wanted to be here. Every fiber in me wanted to teach here and live here, so I didn't give up.
I was absolutely confident that I will find another position and I did. During that year I started an early childhood enrichment program, trained teachers and facilitators. And searched and applied for positions. Success.
The second picture was taken a week ago, and here I was telling my friend about my plans of moving back home.
Again, I just know that that's what I need to do. I will miss my life here, but I miss my family more.
This business that I'm spending most of my free time on is my way out. This is why I'm able to make this move and not worry about what I'll do in Hungary.
Because of this business I won't have to teach at a school, or a language school. That would make no sense: I'm going home to be available to my mom during the day. I can sit with her, cook for her, take care of her while working.
I can't tell you how grateful I am that this amazing gift found me. And I'm grateful to my 2015 self for saying yes. I had no idea how profitable and rewarding this would turn out for me. I should have known.:D I had all these examples around me. It's funny how I didn't believe that it can be real for me too. Now I know. And I'm ready to pursue more.
So with the same certainty I had in 2008, I’m building a team of successful coaches and I’m here to share. Because YOU need to know about it if you need flexibility. If you have kids, parents or siblings who need you home, or if you have a longing in your heart to be with them.
