Welcome back to episode 54! 

Today I want to take you through part of my process for creating my expat business. 

In a lot of expat groups a lot of people are feeling a little lost and unsure what to do when they aren't allowed to work in their new host country. 

 

This is the process I followed to turn my interest into a business I hope it can help to get some ideas bubbling.

Are their behaviours and habits that struck you as odd when you landed but now you find yourself doing them? 

Do you know what to say if someone won't stop banging on the door of the toilet stall in South Africa? 

I asked an amazing group of women about the local rules in their host countries or back home. It was so enlightening to read their answers.

Welcome back!

 

This week is another  short solo - show

It did not seem right to ignore the trial for the killing of George Floyd or to ignore how heavy it weighs on me as black woman. So this week I decided to give a little perspective on what it means to belong when you are the first generation born outside your other home country. 

This led me to also talk about:

    I need you help with next episode. I want to do an episode on “black tax”.

    If you know what that means please give my your thoughts and feelings on the topic. Most people I’ve spoken to hade been affected one way or another. Is it help? Is it a crutch? Is it fair? Is it abused.

    What if you decided to stay.

     

    Sometimes as an expat spouse I day dream about the other path i could have taken. Would I have a different career? Would I be married? 

    Which decisions were good and bad with hindsight and what lessons can I apply now. This one is for you if you say " I wish I had... " a lot.

    Mental health is still such a taboo, we watch the videos on IG about the enefits but how many of us know how to ask for help or even how to look for it. 

    Are you stuck about deciding whether your problem is "big enough"?
