I help potential expats, just like you, brainstorm your important decisions so that you gain clarity, reassurance and peace of mind that you're making confident choices for you and your family.
You’re planning a move abroad. There’s a lot to deal with and so many decisions to make. And all while running your busy life too. It can quickly become overwhelming.
You’re dreaming of living the expat life but haven't quite made the decision yet. You have a passion for adventure; you want to experience more of what the world has to offer. Maybe you want to follow a career path that's limited in your home country.
Whatever your reason, you stand on the brink of making one of the biggest, most complicated, but also the most exciting, life decisions you’ll ever make.
Are you confident in your decision-making skills? Or would you like a little help from someone who’s been there and done that – several times?
Perhaps you’re not sure if it’s the right move for you and your family. What if it doesn't work out? Are you worried about giving up your career to become a trailing spouse or accompanying partner?
Making decisions of this magnitude can become overwhelming, especially if your decision affects other people. Decision fatigue and analysis paralysis kicks in and you either make a poor choice, or no choice at all.
Get a fresh perspective on your particular relocation aspirations to help you focus on your first, and next, steps.
Rather than being afraid of making the wrong decision, let's talk it all through together. Just an hour talking with me helps you gain the comfort, clarity and calm you need to make a well-judged decision.
So, if you need someone neutral to chat it all over with, in complete confidence. I’m here for you!
What to expect when you're expatting
As a family, we first moved abroad in 2006 and survived that move, and every subsequent relocation, by winging it and learning the hard way. Learn from my mistakes!
I want you to learn the easy way. It’s much less stressful and you get much more out of your life abroad if you know what to expect.
There's no substitute for experience. And I have actually done the whole moving overseas with my family AND back again. So, I have seen real expat life from both ends!
Not only that, I have a lot of life experience behind me too. Add to this to a bucket load of common sense and an eagerness to help everyone make the best decisions for them and their family.
Each and every person is different; you need different things in life; you have different hopes, dreams and needs. A cookie-cutter life simply does not exist. This is why you shouldn't choose a cookie-cutter adviser or consultant for your important decision making process.
Nobody could ever call me 'cookie-cutter'!
'Fluff-free advice'. AKA no BS.
I'll be authentic, up-front and honest with you, always; sharing my insight, offering one-to-one, individualised advice with efficiency and sense. I'll help you brainstorm key points when considering a move abroad, a relocation to a different country or even repatriation.
Put my expertise and experience to work for you and you alone. Use my insight into all aspects of life, expat and otherwise, to help you live the life you dream about.
