The Book That Changed My Life

When I was 17, my best friend told me about a self-development book that was a “must read.”

She went on and on about how it helped her improve her communication skills and have better relationships with people.

She said I HAD to read it.

But I ignored her suggestion because I was too busy living my life and doing whatever else seemed more important.

Then, years later, I found the book and read it.

… and she was right.

Not only did it change the way I thought about life, but it helped me communicate more effectively & build powerful relationships with friends, mentors, colleagues, and people all over the world.

Speak English Confidently In Less Than A Year

How did Rene, a software developer from Ecuador, become a confident English speaker? Watch the interview above and read the one below to find out! 

1. How did you learn English?

This is a long story, haha. Let me explain why. I studied English in school ever since I was a kid, and I also studied for a year in the university. I used to be one of the best students, even when I was unable to establish a basic conversation with somebody else in English.

I also took a course in an institute where I had a couple of native English speakers and also other bilingual/multilingual teachers. Then, I figured my English was not so bad because I was able to understand them and establish really poor dialogues with them. Then I met you Stef, and you helped me a lot to grow my confidence. As I said, my English was not so bad, but my lack of confidence was one of the biggest obstacles during this journey. But now I’m enjoying practicing and improving instead of being afraid.

4 Steps To Improving Your Writing

If you want to improve your writing, there are 4 things you have to do: ask questions, research, practice, and get feedback. 

First, ask questions about what you are trying to accomplish Different types of writing require different structures and techniques. An email, for example, is not written the same way as a resume. Formal and informal writing are also very different. So, start by asking questions. 

  • What are you writing?
  • Who is your audience?
  • What expectations do they have?
  • What structure should you follow?
  • Where can you find good examples of this kind of writing?
  • What tone should you use?
  • How can you create this tone?
