Jan van der Aa is originally from the Netherlands and has been working location independently since his graduation from college in 2012. His work has allowed him to live on 4 different continents and to visit over 85 countries. Besides his native Dutch, Jan also speaks English, Mandarin, German, French, Portuguese, Cantonese and Spanish. This allowed him to help found Language Boost, a language learning method which helps learners get to an intermediate quickly.
In this episode we talk about how he started his language translation company and how simply being bold allowed him to get together this group of people to translate documents. He then talks about what he learned by learning his own languages and finally realizing that he himself is a good language learner. From this he explains how he put together his startup as well as the struggles behind it.
