Boran is a woman of multiple talents and is currently 41 years old. Boran is from Nazareth, Palastine. She holds a Bachelor and a Master degree in English and teaching languages. She used to be an English teacher for 20 years. She taught students of all ages starting from elementary school kids, high school students, university students and business men.
Boran is the CEO of B.English, a college of teaching English as a second and foreign language for all ages. B.English offers a variety of English courses which mainly aim at enabling students to acquire and develop their English language skills to eventually reach their academic and career goals.
Surprisingly, the feeling of discomfort and the lack of passion at some stage in her life were Boran’s main motive to start her own business. She loves teaching English to people and she adores communication, yet 6 years ago she realized that the educational system of schools restricted her somehow to fulfil her fiery potential as an English teacher. Boran realized that schools were not the right place to fully achieve what she has to offer in a world where English become a prerequisite to any progression career and academic wise. She could have chosen to work in any unconventional English teaching institute and fulfil her potential, yet most of these institutes do not belong to her community. The fact that her community lacks such institutes further motivated her to establish her own English college. No one knows what her people need better than her. So she started her small modest business teaching one-on-one lessons to business men who eventually brought their whole families including their kids to learn English at B.English. She never said no to any new student a thing which allowed her to develop a new whole syllabus every time she got a new student. Thus, today she has more than 20 English courses and syllabus. The results that her students achieved after taking B.English courses, her professionalism and loyalty to her work attracted more and more customers to her small modest business and only after 3 months she had 50 students which is considered to be a success that no one could ignore. 50 students from different age groups with different needs and goals.
Today B.English is 5 years old. Today B.English has a professional team of English teachers who were trained to teach English in Boran’s own method. Her team is both local and international. Today B.English also offers online courses to local and international students.
Problems are inevitable in any life situation and they are necessary for our personal and business growth. Boran’s first problem was financial, unlike other businesses, she didn’t have a capital, a thing which forced her not to give up her job as a teacher at school and to wear different hats throughout her day since she didn’t have the money for hiring a secretary, teachers, marketing people and even a cleaning lady. That is to say she had to go to school every day and teach until 3 p.m , head straight forward to her office and work as secretary and marketing person at the same time, hold meetings with parents and register their kids, teach B.English courses, develop new courses and clean by the end of the day.
Another problem was the lack of business experience. She had a zero experience in business management, yet she overcame this problem by her ability and will to learn. Boran never stopped asking for help, consulting other business owners, reading books, participating in business seminars and taking business courses. She never surrendered despite the obstacles, the fatigue and the many days of despair. She always attempted to look far beyond the darkness to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Boran’s future plans are to expand B.English at an international level. B.English locally succeeded to assist many kids, school and university students, adults and business men to achieve their academic and career goals and Boran would like to do the same internationally.
Boran’s message to the upcoming talent is “Never accept discomfort neither stay in your comfort zone. You’ve got talents, your first step should be realizing why you are here in this world. You are here for a reason, you weren’t born in vain. Once you know why you are on this planet try to connect it to your talent and see the magic happening right in front of your eyes”. She also added that never wait for the right moment, the right moment is now. Never wait for the circumstances to get better you can create your own
Enjoy the chaos it is part of the journey.
