One of the biggest challenge for expat partners who move regularly from a country to another is managing to build a sustainable career and building financial independence. Finding a job or a small business that we can manage remotely and from home can be a great solution to continue working while moving from a country to another.

In the past 5 years, I have been myself working from home and managing my business in marketing and branding. I would prepare all the work from home and go out to meet my clients in their office or to meet new prospects in networking events. I found that this solution brings a lot of flexibly as we are in charge of our agendas and can switch from work to home management and private life in few minutes. However, it is also a solution that can be overwhelming or not stimulating enough to reach our professional goals.

Therefore, in this episode we will discuss some of the advantages, disadvantages and solutions of working from home. And to bring you to you an extra perspective, I brought to you a special guest, Katja Tschoeope, who has been working from home since 12 years!
