About This Class

Living Abroad Successfully: All the ingredients you need to plan. Then, GO!

Have you decided to live abroad? Where would you go? What would you do once you got there? Whether your dream is to escape your current life, become a digital nomad, explore new career paths or just enjoy life elsewhere, this course is for you.

Living Abroad can be either an amazing experience for your to enjoy, or a real disaster. To avoid the pitfalls, this course is designed to take you through every step of your journey. Regardless of your reason to move, you will learn about everything there is to consider. So, all you need to do is apply the knowledge to your own situation.

I've been living and working abroad in various countries, for many years and experienced a good mix of different jobs, apartments, food, relationships, languages and cultures. This course is designed through a combination of own experiences, research, numerous expat interviews and the book I wrote.

This class is Part 2 in a series of 3:

Part 1: Make a conscious decision through understanding what's to come 

Part 2: All the ingredients you need to plan. Then, GO!

Part 3: How to admire, adjust, settle in & Feel at ''Home''

  • In this Part 2, you will learn to:
    •    Find the destination that matches your wishes
    •    Research accommodation where you can feel at home
    •    Understand the importance of money and finances
    •    Learn a new language easily
    •    Know what to prepare and when
    •    Create your personal checklist to guide you throughout your journey
    •    Avoid overwhelm and stress by following the plan

Any uncertainty or fear you’re experiencing can be lessened, or avoided altogether, if you’re well-prepared for what’s to come.

Experience moving abroad:

Moving abroad is a journey full of opportunities and challenges that will strengthen you as a person, often unconsciously. You become more flexible, more  adaptable to various situations, your intercultural knowledge will expand, and with every new interaction, you’ll build new relationships. The amount of confidence you gain can be incredible and will provide you with extra benefits to all areas of life.

Target Audience:

This course is for anybody over 18 years old who wishes to go abroad for more than just a few weeks holiday.

Whether you’re single or married, with children or without. Maybe you’re employed and being sent abroad by your organization, or maybe you’ve decided you need a change and want to move on your own. You can be a student, a volunteer, or someone dreaming of finding a job abroad.


Have fun, smile, and just GO!
