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

I am grateful for…

Thanksgiving is around the corner reminding us to get together and reflect on what we are thankful for. As a German and vegetarian, the traditional version of Thanksgiving is not really my turf. However, it’s a great time for reflection and creating awareness of how lucky we are despite the daily stress we might have.

Internations Business Solutions Study 2019

Recently, InterNations Business Solutions published its new survey about expats around the world. This time they dedicated a whole section to the relocation spouse and presented her demographics, personal situation, needs, and wishes for their time abroad.

With over 1,300 relocation spouses interviewed, it is one of the most comprehensive surveys out there. That’s why I find it highly relevant to talk about the results – so let’s have look inside.

EXPAT PARTNER CAREER PLANNING: HOPE & DISILLUSION

Recently I stumbled upon one of the best, recent academic papers about Dual-Career Planning in expatriation. The paper “Expatriated dual-career partners: hope and disillusionment” by Agnieszka Kierner perfectly illustrates how hope vanishes when career goals are not met during an international assignment.

Pregnancy Troubles as the Expat

I want to stress an important topic that most of expat partners are confronted with at some time or the other: Is expatriation a great time to become pregnant? How does motherhood change your expat experience? What if you can’ get pregnant? What if you just opened the chapter of the infertility chapter? This blog provides different perspectives on this topic, aiming to give you comfort and support.

Stepping outside your comfort zone

Every once in awhile, we get triggered to step out our own comfort zone. For me personally, this often involves public speaking or sales pitches. Those are things that are just not meeting my core strengths. While others love to present themselves, I prefer to put the content in the spotlight instead of me as a person. However, when you are seeking to grow personally and professionally, stepping outside the comfort zone is a vital method and can’t be neglected!
