"The English Adventurer"

Today we talk with successful New York entrepreneur Kristy Oshita about how starting a business  can compare to learning English!

Entrepreneurs must to work at least as hard as English learners for success.  They have to know how to use their time, focus their energy and maintain their sanity.


Kristy’s three entrepreneurial tips to help improve your chances for English success:

  • Know how to find your happy place. A “happy place” is where you go to rest and recharge. It can be both a physical and mental place, but the important thing is that you relax so you don’t burn out.
  • Find out what works. Stop and ask yourself, which way did I learn fastest? To improve clarity and efficiency, try focusing on one goal at a time.
  • Build and Strengthen Your Team. It is very important for language learners to connect with people. Think about all of the people you are connected to as you learn English, and invest time in those who can help you.

Kristy’s mantra is to be a beacon of love while building something great.

A serial entrepreneur she strives to do this through creating businesses that help people. In her first business, BumbleBee Tennis, she drew upon her background as a competitive tennis player, and brought affordable tennis lessons to the tennis players of NYC.

In addition to being a real estate investor she is currently in the startup phase with Alana Life and Fitness. The vision for Alana is to be a peaceful and loving health club for women to reconnect with themselves and feel ready to take on the world.

Her message to you is, “We can do this. It’s scary but we can.”
