Read on for the best of my tips for moving abroad.
FIND REMOTE WORK
Sites like Upwork are great for finding remote work. I found my first fully remote part-time job through Upwork 8 years ago, and it made a huge difference in me being able to travel and keep my own hours.
REACH OUT FOR HELP
I feel like I never would have been able to move to South Africa without asking a friend who’d done it before for a ton of advice! Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If the road’s already been paved before you, don’t struggle making your own path.
build your community
One of the most important things about moving is also the hardest! Especially during COVID-19, it can be so difficult to find friends in a new place. Apps and sites like Meetup and Bumble BFF are great, and so are Facebook groups for travelers or expats! Put yourself out there. Go to events and activities like a hiking group or salsa class. You might just meet some of your very best friends along the way!
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
BELIEVE in yourSELF. “If I can do it, so can you!” With all we can find out online before we go, the ability to stay connected with friends and family, and the switch to more remote work, this might be one of the best times to take the leap!
