ReloTalk began in January 2019 as a conversation on Linkedin Live about all things real estate and relocation. The initial 2020 episodes feature the “Trailblazing Partners” -- the spouses & partners willing to leave everything behind to recreate their lives in a new city in support of an employee's career. These inspirational women and men have written books, founded coaching and counseling services, established international and online communities, started podcasts and created other innovative careers to support the emotional, social and professional needs of global nomads and their families around the world. Whether you are the relocation client or the professional who serves those who move, please join our conversation Live on Linkedin or enjoy the following previously recorded Live episodes. We hope you will be inspired as we learn from and encourage one another to thrive in our nomadic lives!
