She began building it through her Youtube channel and developed strategies that generated organic reach for her business and more sales. Today she'll share her experience growing a social following from scratch and turning into revenue and then profit.
Learn more in this episode about her perseverance through early business struggles and ultimate triumph that she says began with realistic expectations and constant self-motivation.
More on Marina: Marina Mogilko is the founder of LinguaTrip, a booking engine for language courses and language home-stays all over the world.
