Hi Everyone! We are very excited to announce that we finally launched our first motivational book for expatriate women, Expat Women: Confessions - 50 Answers to Your Real-Life Questions about Living Abroad.

Here's more about the book...

In Expat Women: Confessions – 50 Answers to Your Real-Life Questions about Living Abroad, experienced expats Andrea Martins and Victoria Hepworth share a wealth of wisdom and positive tips to motivate you at every stage of your expat journey. They cover popular topics like leaving family back home, transitioning quickly, intercultural relationships, parenting bilingual children and work-life balance. They also address more difficult issues such as expat infidelity, divorce, alcoholism and reverse culture shock.

If you have ever wondered what it is like to live abroad, work abroad or accompany your working partner abroad, this book is for you. If you are already living the expat life but have mixed feelings about settling in, rebuilding your identity, relationship changes, successfully managing your money and career, raising children far from home or repatriating, this book is also for you. Or if you are just looking for a motivational gift for your expat friends, clubs or companies, Expat Women: Confessions is likewise for you!
