Love Your Expat Life

Feb 10, 2022

When you’re the “accompanying spouse” in an expat life, your choices may feel quite limited. You may not be able to work, earn your own money, or have your own professional identity. For some, this feels very limiting.

Is it possible to turn these seeming obstacles into opportunity? My guest, Life Coach Kim Ramirez, and I think so. Obstacles are only obstacles when we allow them to get in our way, after all!
In this conversation, Kim and I talk about how the dream of living the expat life can sometimes be derailed by the realities, and how coaching helped her transform her life.
