20somethings & incubators

So I recently filled out my 20somethings profile. It’s strange talking about myself in that way. Trying to present an fair and accurate picture while not wanting to come across as braging. The core things that I hope came across in the interview I’m going to repeat here, because I was fairly nervous and I … Continue reading

Guides and Pitch Decks.

Okay, so I finally got the first edition of the Guide up for moving to another host state from your origin state with your Non-European Family member. I don’t think it’s prefect yet but it’s a start, you can check it out and tell me what you think at: https://helpimanexpat.wordpress.com/non-euro-family-members/ In other news I’m currently spending … Continue reading

Moving Forward.

Some times when faced with adversity, moving forward seems like the last thing you can do. When things get tough as humans are usually more inclined to run and hide, moving backwards rather than forwards. And the worst thing about that feeling is that it’s usually just before you are about to succeed. So far in my … Continue reading

Planning for the Future

From time to time it is necessary to make plans, from budgets to shopping lists, plans are essential. So given the current state of things with money constantly being consumed and a limited supply to replenish it, how does one plan for the future? This question is never an easy one to ask as it identifies that … Continue reading

Feeststol and Glühwein

I’ve not written a blog post in a few days, mainly because there has been little to talk about and I don’t want to be posting “insightful commentaries” all the time. It’s that time of year again when new and experienced expats tend to feel like a roller-coaster of emotions and it’s no different for my husband and I despite … Continue reading

Every silver-lining has a cloud.

Yesterday was fantastic, today was not so much. You see yesterday I had my first face to face meeting with my future business partner. It went great! We had some coffee, spoke about our ideas, discussed start dates and set out a plan of action for the business. So as you can imagine I was … Continue reading

Trying to jump through bureaucratic hoops.

So, as with any time that you want to deal with the Government, Yesterday was spent going from desk to desk, phone-line to phone-line and then desk to desk again, in a mad attempt to complete our registration process. However, even though we had been assured that we would be able to register at this address, it turns out that we … Continue reading

Warp drives and wrapping paper.

It’s that time of year again when we all start thinking about what presents to get (or in my case, as must be the same for millions around the world can afford to get / or make) for our loved ones. So Christmas on a budget…Fun! In other news —— NASA want to make life … Continue reading

Befriended by a local cat.

Funny creatures are cats. At times it appears as if they can sense “cat people”, people like myself, who adore cats and whom cats seemingly adore back. Seemingly over the last few weeks I’ve become slowly adopted by a local cat. She sits in the garden all day and occasionally comes up to the window … Continue reading

The things I didn’t know about resumes

So, today I received an interesting email from a recruiter: Can you rewrite your CV in the  format attached so that it will be accepted by our computer system? After reviewing your CV manually we think you’d be eligible for a role but we can’t upload your CV to the system to compare you against other candidates. … Continue reading
