Description:

This week I am speaking with Adele Field who is a member of the Career Pivot community and a winner in the GetSetUp Startup Accelerator Program for 55+. Adele is on a journey that I wanted you to hear about.

Adele has done a lot in her career but most importantly she is a creative. I labeled her from our first discussion as a logical creative. She has been working in email marketing and using databases for years. Yet, she has had a comedy podcast, written plays, and a variety of other creative endeavors.

She is now on the journey to create Flashback Garage. Check out her website at Flashbackgarage.com to truly understand what she is creating.

In this episode I am rebroadcasting one of the most impactful episodes that I published in 2021 - Are You Ready to Reimagine Your Life and Career with Michael Clinton? Michael is the author of ROAR into the second half of your life (before it's too late!). It is a really great book.

If you listened to the original episode in August of 2021, then I want you to listen to it again, especially take note of Michael’s last couple of answers.

Let me read to you Michael’s LinkedIn about section:

He spent 40+ years in the publishing business as a Publisher, SVP, Exec VP and President/Publishing Director of Hearst Magazines. Highlights include being on the executive team to launch O, the Oprah Magazine, Food Network and HGTV magazines and acquiring such titles as Elle, Men's Health and Women's Health, among others.

In 2020, He transitioned out of the day to day to become Senior Media Advisor to the CEO of The Hearst Corporation.

Aside from his Publishing career, he has published 10 books, 8 photography and 2 memoirs, The Globetrotter Diaries (after visiting 100 countries) and Tales from the Trails (after running 7 marathons on 7 continents).
Writer, photographer, runner, motivational speaker.
In the fall of 2021 published a new book... ROAR into the second half of your life (before it's too late!)…now a best seller heading into a third printing. Join the ROAR community on roarbymichaelclinton.com

I will be discussing with Michael the concepts and processes presented in his book.

Description:

This week I will be talking about the adaptable expat mindset and what it takes to be successful as an expat. We all of expectations of what moving to another place might be like, especially another country, and those expectations are almost always wrong. The decision to be an expat is experiential and not a logical decision.

A lot of what I will discuss comes from a workshop that I developed for Amava on the thought process of becoming an expat. Well, Amava has ceased operations and I thought I would repurpose some of that content.

For those who are relatively new to this podcast, my wife and I have been living in Ajijic Mexico for 4 years. You can find all of the podcasts and blog posts on our expat page on the Career Pivot website. You will find a link to that page in the show notes.

I want to take you through many of the aspects of becoming an expat and why you need to be able to maintain an adaptable mindset. Very few things will be as you expect.

I have already received significant feedback and the Mike McNatt episode has been mentioned multiple times. That feedback accelerated the publication of this week’s episode.
