Podcast Reviews

  • Career Transition Support Excellent
    by Natasha Winnard from United Kingdom

    I recently transitioned from working in international schools for over 20 years around the world. Setting up an online, portable educational consultancy business to support mobile students and their families, with a youth empowerment social justice element, was a completely new professional experience for me. Tandem Nomads episodes have, and continue to, provide excellent insight and learning for me navigating a new professional world. And after each episode, I am more empowered and think “I can do this!”. Thank you. A great resource to support and guide anyone wanting to grow a successful portable business and thrive in your expat life.

  • Dealing with the negative emotions
    by Fr OL from Canada

    Gabriela Encina is both inspirational and empowering! I got from this podcast to welcome all of our emotions, the pleasant as well as the unpleasant ones without any discrimination--each being a dear friends sending us messages we should listen and interpret. Amel is doing an excellent job interviewing. Thanks to both of you.
