As most expat partners, you might be well educated and might have had a great career before you decided to quite your job and join your partner abroad in a nomadic journey across the world.
It is an amazing chance to embrace the world and live an exciting journey with your family. However, something is missing in your life, a sense of fulfillment, accomplishment or a need for challenge. Evolving in your career or projects while moving regularly from one country to another has been no easy task. Along the journey, you have learnt to be flexible and reinvent yourself every time, but you want to build continuity and stability, a career, a business or a project that is sustainable, something you can take with you where ever you go and that fits to your personality.
You know that you can’t keep moving abroad without a portable plan for yourself, but you don’t know where to start?
THE ESSENTIALS TO BUILD YOUR PORTABLE PLAN
1. Don't do this alone!
- Talk to the right friends and family members.
- Find a community and sources of inspiration
You need to build patience but also make sure to identify the communities (online and offline) where members have common interests and can support each other, create the right environment, energy and mindset that is needed to stay motivated. Also, research what kind of resources or new skills do you need to reach your goals. Make sure to stay committed to your goals, curious and interested. Identify the sources of information and inspiration (books, blogs, podcasts, magazines, organizations or clubs, etc.) that will help you keep up with your goals and your field.
- Reach out to real experts
So instead of hesitating on IF you should sign up for a training program or reach out to an expert, take that time to decide WHAT is stopping you from moving forward, what do you need to learn, WHICH training, which mentor or which coach would fit best to your needs.
