Cold calling - sales calls to people who don’t expect to be called; cold represents the fact that they have not been warmed up to the idea of buying something from you; in the past, calling also meant knocking on people’s doors, luckily this practice a]is not so common anymore.

Linguatrip is really a good way to go abroad and have english courses. However, sometimes i think that could have some manner to go abroad to work instead of studying in the same way. I mean as easy as linguatrip is. It came to my mind because there are a lot of people over the world who want to learn english or other language in which do not have so much money saved in order to spend on their course.
So, for this reason, working would be easier to this kind of pleople, because they could get able to pay for their staying and their needs, while they learn the native language.
I really do not know if already there's something like this, if there is, please tell me.
Hi Marina, congrats for all the good things you’ve accomplished so far, your happiness is contagious ! To answer your question, I'd rather like to work for a big company right now, simply by the fact that I'm getting older and time is one of the only thing you can’t buy. There’s another part of me telling that it's never to late to do what you really want. If I had a good business idea, we never know as we say. I've been watching your videos for 4 hours, very interesting and helpful for a ESL like me. Keep up your good work !
Hi Marina. In order to answer your question, I do prefer work for a big company when I can perform tasks and achieve more of my potencial rather than in a small business. That's not a easy choice but sometimes, work in your own business, allows you make more than in a big fortune company. This is my two cents : )
I was working like news reporter in Ukraine. After that I decided I would like to be self-employed or work freelance. It doesn’t matter. Now I have a small shop in Instagram, but I don’t have astonishing profits. But still I want to open my own company :) I love your videos❤️ you are awesome
hello Linguamarina, according your question, I'll prefer to work at Big company because I want to hone my skills and learn about my universty majors "Information System" to gather experiences and get more knowlegde about IT. Maybe someday I will starting my own company after I am worthy but not now.. I'll think about it later. Because I prefer to get a training certificate of IT and master degree in advance. Good luck for you :)
I'm not really interested in starting a company, I mean, I'd say I wouldn't take the guts to do it, so I'd rather work in one big corporation just to improve my knowledge, experience and things like that.
My real business will be investing.
Btw, another great video. Keep up!
Hey ,marina I understand English but it just that some time I don't understand the vocabulary I thinking I weak in that so plz give me suggestion to improve my vocabulary understand there actual meaning
That's just my two cents, you should to start work at corporation because that experiment will help u to be capable to understand how the work goes. In addition, it gives the sufficient experience to start a new project or start your own business.
Depends on what you desire. As for me, I want to start with working in a big company. I like a busy environment and also being a part of the corporate ladder. Then, I’ll start my own company when I have enough capital and when I’m confident in the company I envision to make. Either way, it requires of you to be persistent in your work in order to be successful. Slowly but surely the universe will conspire to your liking
