I Need to Start My Own Web Business

The other day while I was teaching English, a student asked me: “Are you proud of your job?” Wow. Ballsy kid. But the truth of the matter is, I’m not going around proclaiming to the world that I am an English teacher. It’s fine. I’m having fun while I’m doing it, enjoying the ride as I go along, but it’s not something I’d like to have engraved on my epitaph. I’ve got other things I’d like to get accomplished.

So here are a few things that I’d like to do.

  • Start a site – with a focus on the newcomer to Korea, I’d like to provide survival Korean lessons, visa information, things to do, ways to meet people, etc. – I’m having a hard time trying to figure out a monetization strategy, but getting it up and running with some substantial traffic would not be a problem.
  • Write a screenplay – The story would focus on how I met my fiance and our life of daily miscommunication – all based on our common secondary identity.
  • Compile a Book – What I mean by compile is to kind of do something along the lines of Sh*t My Dad Says. Except being more positive.

And yup, all these are great and fun, but just gotta get started on doing it.


On a more personal note. I’m growing my hair out. I’ve had short hair for most of my life, minus a wild year in college when I didn’t get a haircut just out of laziness/poorness. But I’m at it again.

Don’t know where this is going. But might as well!

  1. love your podcasts bro :)…been really helping me with my korean…I am living in Busan right now… as far as for the business check out http://paidtoexist.net/blog/video-two/ http://chrisguillebeau.com/3×5/the-book/ or Tim Ferris book “The Four Hour Work Week” might be helpful… I am kind of in the same boat as you…I have a online bizz now but hoping to ramp it up to full-time status within the year…I am sure you have learned a lot about how a successful membership web business works at koreanclass101…you prob already know everything you need…just gotta do it :)…good luck man!

  2. I’ve been enjoying your lessons on KoreaClass101.com, and wanted to thank you for all the help you’ve given me. My Korean skills haven’t faltered as much as I thought they would because of your group’s podcast and learning center options!

    A suggestion for your book: you guys have a strong brand with KoreanClass101.com, so I’d do a book that compiles success stories of people who’ve used the product and then gone on to success with their new language skills.

    • Hey Marc,

      Glad the lessons are of help to you :)
      I no longer work there, but that might be a good suggestion to send them.

      Thanks for stopping by. Send me an e-mail or comment here if you ever need some help with something! I’ll try my best.

      Hope Korea’s been good to you so far.
