There are so many people that dream of working and living abroad. And if it’s not the dream of living and working abroad, it’s the dream of having the freedom to do such a thing.
It’s an unconventional life, but when has HTYC ever been about following the unspoken “norm” of society?
Here at HTYC, we thrive on new ideas and breaking out of the mold of what we like to refer to as “the traditional path of success.”
Scott and Alyssa, have just recently returned home (to Washington state) from a 6-week stint of living abroad.
Today’s show features their experience of bringing their family to Europe to live and work abroad.
Scott and Alyssa share the challenges they encountered with not only trying to take in as much of the European experience as possible, but as business owners, they had to do their fair share of work, while trying to balance their family life.
In the podcast, they chat about their biggest takeaways of their work experience abroad and share their thoughts on why you may want to consider working abroad.
