The Trigger

Working abroad was not new to me. However it was the experience of being the "dependent" Expat Partner which made me realize how hard it can be to rejoin the job market - especially in a foreign country.

In the time of endless applications and rejections I noticed how my self-esteem and confidence in my skills reached a low point. At the same time I came across a figure that made me angry and triggered : Only 1 out of 4 Expats transferred by a company is female and only 20% of the female Expat Partners are working during the time abroad.

I realized I am not the only one struggling and that there is a massive need to support each other to reach our goals as a job is more than a salary - it's about growing and be of value.

The vision

Share-the-Love aims to empower and support the millions of Women worldwide who have been brave enough to exit the job market and try to re-enter abroad or after a time spent with their family.
Just think about the huge potential of these millions of women worldwide. With raising independence, emancipation and portable career options, empowerment is within our reach.
I aim to change the worldwide stigma of the label "Expat Wife" / "Trailing Spouse" / "Stay-at-home-mum" and shed light on the missed potential.

Who am I?

I am Kate and I am the person behind Share-the-Love.
Originally from Germany, 30 sth, living in the US with stops in Spain, UK, and Taiwan on the way.
I love to travel the world and learn something new every day. I love to view the world through my camera lens and my heart jumps when I see cows. After my International Management studies, I worked several years in the corporate world in various different roles around Marketing, Management, and Business Development before becoming a coach and advocate for Expat Partners.
My Coaching background: I started this blog in the beginning to inspire expats and to share my story. Soon I realized on myself the great effect coaches can have on your life. I quickly enrolled in a journey to become a certified coach at the International Coach Academy and started to create coaching programs tailed to expats.
What gives me positive energy: To know that my life will never be a straight line, not knowing where I may end up next, and all the amazing women I am coaching around the globe to find fulfillment abroad.
I struggle with: Patience & contentment of the status-quo and the fact that Expatriation throws female emancipation back to the last century.
