A short summary of everything that is going on at the moment and is actually right now in the making. I would love to hear your thoughts about that and look forward to discussing!

Why I started www.sharethelove.blog in the first place

My ultimate goal is to create a platform where Expat Partner can find valuable insights, tips, and tricks, inspirational stories and thought-provoking questions. 

There is quite some literature out there but nothing really spoke to me personally. I love reading blogs of other Expat Partners and with some, I really can resonate. It’s a great thing when you read something and think to yourself “That’s exactly how I feel as well!” – “Oh, she is saying this as well- so I am not alone”. I found these moments so enriching that I decided to write down my story as well and grow together with my readers. 

 

When I further researched the whole Expat Partner topic I was shocked to find out that most partners (although perfectly educated, experienced and motivated) are not able to find work abroad. 

The sheer number of women quitting their job not being able to continue what they are doing triggered something inside me and I started to think about ways to help those Expat partners who want to work but are not able to make the necessary steps. 

Changing a culture is one thing – but changing your culture AND your professional life by not switching jobs but going from the familiar working environment to the BIG question of what to work/how to work abroad can be a big moment in your life. I want to be the valuable support at that moment that I needed so much at the beginning of my Expat journey but was not able to get. 

How I want to help other Expat Partners

To reach this goal I was very busy lately visiting several events, connecting with many impressive, bold and future thinking expat minds. A couple of months ago I also started my journey to become a certified coach as I learned that the right question at the right time can change the perspective of our time abroad. A professional coach can transfer a struggling time with a lot of uncertainty into a fruitful soil for life-changing decisions simply by going through your thoughts and questioning underlying beliefs which might have become in your way. 

This journey will take some time and you are not becoming a coach overnight (at least not when you take it seriously and value the responsibility you have). 

 

At the same time, I am creating a workbook about FINDING YOUR PROFESSIONAL IDENTITY ABROAD. I am basically traveling back in time and ask myself what I would have needed to manage this transition a lot smoother. A lot of the information needed is now written down and I keep on adding great inspirational stories of other Expat Partners, eye-opening coaching techniques, and straightforward how-to guides. It is a fun and challenging task to put everything together and I can’t wait to share the result with you.

So there is a lot going on at the morning so it might be a bit quieter on the blog and Instagram in the meantime. 

What do you need?

I would love to know more about what you need to make your expat life a bit easier? What are questions you are carrying around with you? How are you dealing with your professional life abroad? Did you find a job? Are you allowed to work? If you want to contribute to the workbook send me a quick message. 

 

I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Thanks for sharing the love and stopping by!

Where is home?

Being in three different countries over the last couple of days I got inspired by the question of “Where is home”. Here is my point of view on this topic and I would love to learn more about your opinion.

Going to the gynecologist in the US (compared to Germany)

When you are moving abroad it’s funny how many small things in daily life start to become a big event. For me visiting the gynecologist was one of these moments. In this article, I describe a little bit of my routine visit last week to give you some insights on how different our cultures are in these daily life situations. For my male readership: I know that’s TMI, but if you are curious keep on reading 🙂
