100 Interviews with 100 7- Figure Remote Entrepreneurs 

Back in 2011, I was a lonely world-traveling digital entrepreneur living in Costa Rica. I wanted to learn Spanish as quickly as possible so I bought an online course for $30 teaching me power verbs. Honestly, it was one of the most useful products I had purchased to learn Spanish and to help me understand languages I still use that same method. Fast forward to today, and I have the creator of that online course on our podcast to chat about how he has grown his language business into a 7-figure remote company.


His name is Ray Blakney and he is the co-founder of Live Lingua. Ray is an American that grew up in Turkey and now is based in Mexico with his wife and family. They started a full-fledged brick and mortar language school in Queretaro, Mexico and quickly expanded to a learning platform online. Today, Live Lingua has served over 15,000 students, they offer classes in eleven different languages and they are helping people learn all over the world!
