Gabby is an extremely well qualified ‘English as a second language’ teacher who has spent many years teaching abroad, including a substantial stint in Japan.
She initially started posting videos on the YouTube channel to help her students with tricky and recurring problems they had. But, just over a year ago, a change of circumstances – and also a desire to have greater flexibility to travel – led her to develop her online sideline into a successful business. She started offering courses through Go Natural English, using YouTube as a way for people to connect with her.
In this episode Gabby shares the tips and strategies which have enabled her to gain over 150,000 subscribers. She also talks through some of the mistakes she made (so you don’t have to).
