My first podcast is live!

My first podcast is live!

Hi all, my first podcast interview went live and I am finally ready to share 🙂 I was part of the great podcast by James Thomas which is called “4-Seas-1-Family”. This podcast focuses on fascinating stories from all around the world and each guest brings their own perspective on the table. 

The horror of listening to your own voice

The podcast episode went live last week but it took me a while to be able to listen to it. Maybe you can resonate with that: Listening to your own voice – especially in another language – is making me really feel uncomfortable. We recorded that episode a couple of weeks ago and I could not even remember my answers. So each time I was curious and anxious at the same time what my answer to his question was. Thomas is such a great host and his voice makes you calm immediately. So if you want to share your story I can highly recommend to write a message to Thomas. I will link his contacts below. 

Talking about Travel and the struggle of the expat partner

Giving interviews is always funny as you never know what parts of whole story will be picked out. In the case of this podcast I was talking a lot about my solotravel experience but also about the struggle of being a new Expat Partner. These are both topics that are really important to me. 

What Jame's podcast 4-Seas-1-Family is all about

The podcast “Four Seas One Family” began as a simple platform where expats and those individuals who are or were thinking about becoming expats can gather, talk about and share expat experiences. The main goal is to promote the exchanges of cultural understandings and interactions through an expat experience among people regardless of location, social class, religion, politics and other, even opposing, points of views and beliefs. 

James Thomas is the founder and host of the Four Seas One Family podcast. James is  an American expatriate podcast producer specializing in creating podcasts about expat living all over the world. He has been podcasting and videocasting from Taiwan since 2009 about life and culture in Taiwan, Mainland China and Japan. James is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and attended universities in both Mainland China and Taiwan.

The main purpose of the podcast "Four Seas One Family" is to demystify things surrounding expat living and at the same time show that cultures have more in common than most people think. This should give even more reasons to why people must be more open-minded and caring towards eachother. This podcast opens a path to engagement and understanding between people of different cultural backgrounds. I am glad to see that this podcast is helping expats all over the world share their personal experiences concerning their living and working experiences outside their home nation." ing elit dolor

Why we need to learn how to say no

If we are honest to ourselves, saying YES is far more comfortable than saying NO to someone. In this blog post, I want to introduce you to the concept of saying NO, why we need to train this as a muscle, why it is especially essential for expats, and how saying NO can improve your personal quest for happiness.

Why I chose not to work and what I do instead – an interview with an Expat Spouse

Many expat partners ask themselves what to do with their life after moving abroad – especially when the “society-approved”, traditional corporate job or raising children is not a scenario. We often forget that there is a different path we can go: Not working, investing all the time and energy into ourselves, and be happy as hell. I am thrilled that Simone, who is actually also one of my coaching clients, is open to sharing her story and her personal approach in a blog post with us. Simone is a huge inspiration for me, and I bet you will be inspired after reading her reasoning behind her choice as well. Enjoy getting to know Simone and her creative, bold, confident, and clever approach to spending her time abroad.

The aimless & spoilt expat spouse – an opinion piece

A couple of days ago, I stumbled across yet another media coverage about expat spouses and the fact that those well-educated women are throwing away their career ambitions to follow their husband abroad. Interestingly enough, the comments below the post have been even more prejudiced than the article itself. I wonder why it is so hard to change the image of the expat spouse and what we can do to become recognized as what we are: amazing, brave, solution-oriented globe trotters with a lot of understanding for global issues?

Do we have an obligation as expats?

Reflecting on my experience at the Families in Global Transition Conference in Bangkok a couple of weeks ago, there is one sentence that is imprinted in my head: “We are equipped – more than others – to make a change.”
I keep wondering: Is that true? Are we in a privileged situation that should trigger us to act?
