    Public School Teacher to Expat Author to Entrepreneur with Queen Michele #243

    Description:
    This week I have a real joy for you as I am interviewing Queen Michele. Queen is in her late 50s and is an  African American retired school teacher who moved to the North Shore of Lake Chapala Mexico in 2018. She lives on a $1,100 monthly teacher pension.
    I interviewed Queen in episode 119 in March of 2019 after she published her book Considerations: A Guide For Moving Abroad. I am bringing back her back as she has several more entrepreneurial endeavors to tell you about.
    During our interview her dog Quincy interrupted us, and I left that in the episode as he is a big part of Queen’s life.
    Queen is an incredibly resilient and energetic woman that I hope will inspire you.

Highly recommended

Great podcast! I started listening from episode 1 a couple of months ago and I have found Marc’s podcast to be both insightful and confirm many of my own thoughts on a career pivot. I have been recommending to a number of friends and colleagues who have expressed a desire to pivot away from the corporate gig.

Valuable information

The Repurpose Your Career podcast provides valuable information on a variety of different topics in a conversational and easy to understand fashion.

Power Podcaster!

Marc's podcast is truly unique. His interviews help expand the minds of we creatives who would like to do something more or something different at midlife. He recently had me as a guest of the show, where we discussed my transition from teacher to successful writer at age 55. As it was my first podcast experience, I told Marc I was nervous. He said, "Just be yourself and I'll make you sound great." I did, and he did. I highly recommend Marc Miller's "Repurposing Your Career."
