Something we dream of, as a family, is living & traveling abroad. So we read blogs, magazines and such that support that dream, to keep it Alive.
This morning I was reading from International Living magazine about The Truth About Business Abroad and this struck me
“Originally, I too thought the entrepreneurs were more inclined to move abroad. But I no longer believe that. I think it’s the move abroad that makes ordinary people into entrepreneurs. ” by Lee Harrison
Some of the reasons Lee mentions to support his perspective are:
-expats set themselves apart from the rest simply because they have actually made the move overseas.
-expats often find themselves in new areas with ‘fresh pair of eyes’ where there lies unlimited prospects, in countries with less regulations
-expats have a great opportunity to ‘start over again’, where nobody knew them & their previous ‘restrictions’, so there is no preconceived notions of what the expat is capable of doing. So virtually they can re-invent who they want to be, without the nay-sayers (usually friends and family).
Keeping the Dream Alive. One day I’ll be telling you about the new business we’ve started up abroad!
