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 am currently running my annual survey and I would be honored if you take a moment to take this short survey about Career Pivot and this podcast.
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.
