Moving abroad is more than adopting to a new culture
Moving abroad entails more than cultural obstacles and language barriers. It also brings change into your life on every dimension. Relationships and marriages do change along the way, friends are missed, professional identity is on stake and most women are struggling finding new fulfillment in their life when the former job can’t be packed in a box and brought along on this adventure of living abroad. This website is here to help, to inspire, to empower, and to show you that the time abroad is a great opportunity for personal development if used right. You will find stories of expats around the world, useful tips & tricks to plan your job hunt, coaching exercises to broaden your mindset, helpful guides to feel at home abroad, and great resources for direct download.

Hi! I am Kate, an intercultural coach / career consultant / Marketing expert, driven by curiosity and the goal to explore the world. I have worked and lived in 5 different countries so far but nothing shaped me like my current Expat Experience.
I am on a mission to help women who moved abroad, repatriated to their home country or re-joined the job market after spending valuable time with their family in finding their professional identity and start to trust in their skills and impact.

In this article, I want to highlight what intent is, how you can reflect on your very own intent for life and start living accordingly.
Do you like Mondays? I have the feeling that claiming to hate Mondays is not only the new norm but also widely socially labeled as “cool.” Everyone is posting a sad face and a reference to Mondays on social media. I recently found out that there is also the term “blue Monday” referring to a Monday in January which weatherwise brings the most depressed vibe with it. However, if you are the expat partner, Mondays might have reached a new level of stress. In this article, I want to explain why and what will help if you are feeling moody.

So, I covered in several posts the identity struggle than can come along when you are moving abroad for the partner’s job. It’s a new beginning on several levels and a change also in areas that you have been happy with such as the job situation. In this blog post, I want to present you an interview with a very experienced Expat who moved abroad for her husband’s job and managed to re-invent herself and be happy with the new lifestyle. She contacted me after reading one of my blog posts where I covered the topic of why the question “What do you do?” can be a tough one. She expressed her disbelief that modern women are still struggling with this and showed me her perspective. I loved it and wanted to present to you her point of view so I asked her for an interview. And here it is: A conversation about the modern challenges of being an Expat Partner and what to learn from more experienced Expat Partners – with the amazing Antje Döhring.
