You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess. I’m Yael Trusch your Host, welcome to the show. Shana Tova! I hope your Rosh Hashana was meaningful and joyous despite the interesting and different circumstances most of us are in.
I have a New Year’s gift for all of you inspired on some private messages I received over the last few days I’m extending the exclusive Jewish Money Makeover pricing for private Money Coaching to everyone during the month of Tishrei. Head over to Jewish Latin Princess.com/coaching and sign up for that exclusive deal.
Today I have a super fun guest and a savvy entrepreneur, Sarah Farzam. She’s the Founder and CEO of Bilingual Birdies, a foreign language and live music program for children up to age six, now with operations across 21 cities in teh US Canada, and Australia.
Sarah didn’t start out as a business woman. She was a teacher, who was also moonlighting to make ends, as she developed an idea that went all in on with tremendous grit. Sarah began Bilingual Birdies over 12 years ago to encourage cross-cultural awareness through foreign language and live music curriculum. The programs teach Spanish, French, Mandarin, and English (ESL) through live music, movement, dance, puppetry, and theatre-based games. Through a terrific licensing program, Bilingual Birdies now also offers budding entrepreneurs, who have a love of language, culture and children, the opportunity to start their own Bilingual Birdies business.
You can find her on IG @bilingualbirdies and you can learn more about Bilingual Birdies and launching your own bilingual birdies business from the comfort of your home at bilingualbirdies.com.
Here are some takeaways:
1- Don’t be afraid to fail. It builds resiliency and failures often teach you more than successes.
2- If you don’t know the business skills to implement your idea, go find who to learn from. Don’t let that stop you from going to market.
3- Get crafty and resourceful. Your idea can take different shapes and forms. Don’t be scared to innovate and deviate, as long as you stay true to your core purpose.
4- Pay it forward. If you’ve been given a gift, then go give that to others.
5- Surround yourself with a tribe of mentors. Don’t be afraid to reach out to people you want to learn from.
6- Strive to build your business in a way that works with your personal life goals.
7- Believe in yourself and others will believe in you.
8- Negotiate for yourself and if that is hard for you, then think of the legacy- you’re paving the way for others.
9- Everything you do matters, Even the things that are not seen in IG
10- Hire people who are better than you, they can execute your idea, build upon it and improve it.
