Jakub aka Profe Kuba: The Backpacking Spain – English Teacher, how the right timing brought me to where I am today.

The whole journey started as a “backpacking” trip and led to a “networking” opportunity, to finding a passion in paradise.

Seem’s a little too good to be true, right? But the timing for me was perfect.

I graduated University in Florida and said I’m OUT! It’s now or never.

Then, I flew to Poland to visit my grandparents, and wanted to do a classic – post college backpacking trip.

Backpacking isn’t easy, it’s actually very challenging. I recommend everyone to try it! But remember, you still need to be aware of your timing.

Timing in life is everything.

Hardwork + Timing = Opportunity. Add Networking into that equation and now you’ve got some sort of {People-meeting-Chemistry-making (Quantum Physics)} sort of crazy-cool-unique experience.

I spent 4 Days in Madrid, trying to meet 1 person who worked in an organization I worked for in the US – he couldn’t make the meeting. So I was off to Barcelona a little disappointed.

Literally as I land in Barcelona, I quickly turn on my cellular data and BAM! GOOD NEWS!

“Are you available to work starting next month at our camp for Spanish children?”

Si, hombre ! Claro! – Of course !!!!

They guy from the organization responded.

The rest of the backpacking trip was a dream, and I had a smile on my face knowing I get to go back to Spain when the backpacking trip is over.

My journey in Spain started off as visiting one of Europe’s largest cities, and let to working with children from international schools in a small village at our organized camps, to finally working in a private school in Madrid and getting my Master in International Education degree.

For the past 10 years, I have been teaching trust, confidence, communication skills, to children from infants to even older adults through immersive activites.

Volleyball, Baseball, Swimming, Tennis / Padle, English classes in a school, to online private lessons, and you know what I realized?

Everyone is a kid. You just get older.

The worst thing that can happen to anyone is they lose the kid in them, the creativity, the curiosity, the trust you have in others even though you know that “stranger danger” is what your mom taught you.

There are good people out there like myself, Profe Kuba, who want’s to see you succeed, and create opportunities for yourself with the help of the internet.

Use your time wisely on the internet, don’t overdo it – it’s not healthy, but use the internet to be productive.

I want to show you how to use the internet to your advantage’ learning English, People, and Internet skills.

Today’s another day to learn something new and with 30 minutes everyday, imagine where you’ll be in 1 year, or next week?

So, what are you doing with your time?

Thanks for your time.

Jakub – Profe Kuba
