I am really excited to be part of the #wowchallenge
Starting my own business was daunting, exciting and didn’t feel real. Somewhere at the back of my mind I thought that I would be back look at the jobs ads soon enough. After 20 years’ teaching English in Italy and the UK, gaining my diploma in TESOL and travelling the world to promote international summer schools, while building my own consultancy, I still had my doubts and thought I would probably fall, but I knew I needed to get on with the challenge and start my own school.
I had 2 wow moments, but the first one was the first time a student booked my summer camp. Out of all the other options they chose BLISS! The messages that I was sending out had been received! They had been interpreted and they had had a positive impact. This was huge! You know when you hear about small business owners doing a happy dance when they make a sale, I can tell you this is absolutely true. I called my family and friends, and I finally came off cloud nine when I realised things had gotten real.
The determination I felt to have more than one lone student in my summer camp made me WhatsApp, present, call, Skype and talk my way to one booking after another and while the camp shaped up, in a modest fashion, with each and every summer camp student booking celebrated the same way as the first.

We are English language experts. We think about English and the teaching of English, we implement that in our school. The BLISSful blog is an insight into English language summer schools and why we are different.
