Interview with me on JetSetCitizen

John Bardos has just done an interview with me on the JetSetCitizen site: Lifestyle Design Interview: Richard Graham

It’s mainly about lifestyle design, but John was also interested in the story of how I started Genki English and the sacrifices and risks involved in setting up your own business.

It’s interesting how he sees me as “starting teaching in Japan”. I actually started my first business at 13 and my first teaching business at 16 in the UK. But anyway, I don’t often do interviews in English, so if you’d like to know a little more about what and how I do things then please have a read!

If anyone else would like to interview me for their blog or newsletter then let me know, I’ll try and help where I can.

Richard Graham

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    Ispiring! You deserve the best! When I tell people about Genki, the general reaction is that there is lots of stuff like that around. But I say there’s an imortant difference. Genki works! Even if I’m feeling down and low, and just not so eager to be in the classroom at that moment, it’s no big deal because GENKI DOES ITS JOB and by the time the bell rings, I’m just hopping around, too! Thanks!

    Heh heh – sounds great, Richard! I’m sure some of the time it can get a lot tougher than you let on, but nevertheless, wow, nice lifestyle! Enjoying yourself and seeing the world, while helping to improve it for many at the same time. Hope you do manage to keep it up as for long as you want.

    What a really interesting insight into your life Richard. I think you do work a lot harder than the article reads though!! Travelling with children – I so agree. We have always taken our children to varied locations in the UK and abroad. You do have to be very well prepared when they are small, but that’s part of the adventure. It is so much easier now as they are older and living in Austria we are surrounded by yet unexplored countries, just a drive away.

    Thanks for sharing the article and it is so nice to see just how modest you really are. I too hope you find a partner, as you described!!!, to share your life with. You really are an inspiration to so many!

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone! I think I was a little under counting with the 10 hours line.

    I’m surprised John left the last part in, I’ve got nothing against brunettes! πŸ™‚

    Reading it just made me dream!
    I was wondering if you had plans to get married but I’m glad that you want to and that you want a lot of kids!! And I’m glad to know that you won’t stop what you have built because we really count on you!!!

    I just worry about your health, though. Please take care! Luv
