TN10: To work or not to work… An existential question for expat partners?

To work or not to work… A question that can become an existential question for expat partners.

Have you noticed how often people tend to ask the question “what do you do?” when they meet somebody for the first time?

Isn’t it amazing how our professional lives seem to identify us as individuals, especially in the Western world?

I have heard a lot of expat partners say how much they struggle when they are asked this question, even when they are stay-at-home mums (or dads), the most important job in the world!

We can all agree that our professional lives should not define us as individuals, however, asking ourselves the question: Do we want to work or do we need to work in our journey as expat partners can turn into a very interesting self-exploration journey!

In this episode, I will share with you why it is important to define what you really want and how to define clearly what you want.

Also, if it turns out that it is important for you to work while being an expat partner, I will take you through three major steps to help you take the right direction and decision regarding the work opportunities your are looking for.

Help your expat friends who might need inspiration to turn the challenges of relocation into great opportunities.
