    86: Big News - I Moved To Tokyo Japan

    You heard/read that right. I'm still in shock and I don't think it'll sink in that I now live here for a while. In this episode, I talk about:

    1. My move from Minneapolis USA to Tokyo, Japan a week ago
    2. Why Japan
    3. What the move means for this platform
    4.  How I'm feeling from when it came up, to leading up to the move, to 5 days in Tokyo
    5. How this move feels different from other moves and ways moving abroad will humble you
    6. What this move means for my house
    7. How I've prepared for this move (financially, emotionally)
    8. My hope for this next chapter
    9. What I'm most excited about

    This immigrant has moved again and this was not at all a move I planned or expected this time last year. Here's to taking steps in faith! Can't wait to see what lies on the other side and can't wait to bring you along.

valuable resource for immigrant success

I began tuning in two months into my migration journey, and I must say, this podcast offers a treasure trove of wisdom, valuable insights, and motivation for fellow immigrants. I wholeheartedly endorse it!
