Are you wondering what your next career step might be but can’t come up with a clear vision?
Do you doubt that your resume will be competitive after a long career break or in a foreign country?
Especially as mothers with a global DNA, one can get used to putting own ideas second.
At the same time, the profession is such an important part of our self-realization, which not only brings a financial aspect with it, but also goes hand in hand with recognition, joy of life, and a sense of purpose. By neglecting the question of your professional future, you neglect an essential part of what defines you as a woman and mother.

Hi, I am Kate
I launched SharetheLove in 2017 to shed light on the Expat Partner identity struggle.
A lot has happened since then. SharetheLove has become a home away from home for all those who feel uncertain about their professional future with regard to their life abroad or their nonlinear CV.
Many of my clients are entering a job market after a long break and want clarity about the next steps as well as support in terms of career branding and networking. For other clients, a move abroad is imminent and they want to prepare themselves in the best possible way for the foreign job market. Still others miss a network of like-minded people who understand the challenges of mobile life and are looking to connect.
Re-entering the workforce after a longer break
A career break is tricky to cope with for many women around the globe. Re-entering the workforce after taking some time to raise children, move countries or take a mental break is a long journey that also includes rediscovering your self-worth.
In this new research project, I am shedding light on the stories of women who did re-enter the workforce and revealing how they did it.

1:1 Coaching & Mastermind Group Coaching
“I called for Kate for a coaching session just before our move back to Germany after 10 years in France. It was a real joker! I very much appreciated the immense capacity to listen and to support on the basis of my reflective development. This very special openness combined with a large amount of empathy made that I felt very well accompanied and in confidence during the whole time. After 3 individual coaching sessions that we arranged over a period of around 3 months I will join a Mastermind Group to continue my reflection and share my projects and my experience with others. I am very happy to stay in touch with Kate as well. Thank you very much, you do such great work here. I am so happy to have met you and I wish so many others to get to know you as well.”
“I started my coaching sessions with Kate when I was actually dissatisfied with my job. During the coaching, I wanted to get clear about where I stand and where I want to go and what I have to do to get there. However, during the coaching I realized what great aspects my job has and how I can use my strengths to thrive. Kate accompanied me and gave me the space for reflection. Through this changed perspective, I have gained a lot more self-confidence and I totally enjoy my job again. Thank you dear Kate, for your listening and your “nudges”.”

Mastermind Group Coaching
“Having lived and still living “the experience abroad”, I love that Kate puts into numbers and words what we all go through. I enjoy her articles which are helpful as well as inspirational. Joining one of her mastermind groups put things into motion for me as I took the personal deadlines “very personal”. Wherever you are at your journey, if you need the very first input and structure or if you need the final push to move forward, having this exchange with other expat partners led and coached by Kate will facilitate the process! I had so high expectations of myself and so many ideas but our discussions and exercises helped me make peace with the fact that values have changed along the way… while the weekly to-do list made me explore new waters and opened doors to brand-new job opportunities. Thanks, Kate!”

A career break is a phase in life that is always associated with self-doubt and uncertainty. Often women make their peace with this time after they have re-entered the labor market and have found for themselves that they have enjoyed the best of both worlds. Only in retrospect are many women very grateful for this time and at peace with their decision. In this blog post, I am sharing the emotional rollercoaster of women around the globe with long career breaks. Read about Lisa, who re-entered the workforce after 7 years and learn from her personal approach.
About 62% of the workforce has taken a career break in their professional history at some point (LinkedIn, 2022). While in the past, career breaks have been a huge stigma and often led to career breakers not re-entering the workforce at all, we are experiencing a new era. But why is it that especially female employees, committed to their profession and boosting recognition and acknowledgment, are deciding to take a career break? In this blog post, I am shedding some light on the reasons for taking a career break and its implications.
As a coach, I have seen a visible increase in the need to explore different career options. While some clients are finally planning to tackle going back to work after a long break, other clients are seeking a shift in their current career feeling their skills and values are not matched with their current profession. During the pandemic the buzzword “The great resignation” came up, illustrating the global need for creating a new work-life balance. In this article, I will highlight some interesting global facts around the topic of the great resignation and explore why coaching is such an essential tool for employees (and potential employees) to gain realignment with their careers.
Living abroad not only opens up a completely new view of the country and its people. The perception of worldwide cultural differences also does something to one’s own ideas. What is desirable? What belongs to the things that are absolutely necessary and what are things that are considered absolutely necessary in one culture and play no role at all elsewhere? This becomes very vivid if you make yourself aware of an everyday situation in a very concrete way. In this article, I look at the different designs of children’s rooms around the world and what this has to do with a return to our basic instincts.
Are families less willed to move abroad in this world of uncertainty? How will expat assignments change within the next year?
