Yes I am – a surprise thought that became a fulfilling activity!
I have and I did. In 2006 I started Live Life Now Coaching – english coaching for expatriates based in the Netherlands or overseas. I did this as I realised I wasn't returning to the UK and my former HR career due to my partner's work overseas – he's been based in the Netherlands since 2004 and I needed an outlet for my skills and "self identity" as well as realising how coaching could benefit other expatriates. I'm glad I did it and I love how my business has allowed me to meet many other expatriates from differing walks of life and allowed me opportunities to be involved in projects that I never would have done if working in HR in UK! I also love that my business works in conjunction with my lifestyle both as expat in being a portable career and with my role as a parent.
