This week’s episode is a bit different.
It's about YOU. Your culture. Although it is not your intention, when you move abroad, you are exporting your culture to another country, too.
After all, you don't just show up and learn about new ways of living. You learn them through the lens of your home culture. And there can be clashes there. Misunderstandings. And understanding how your culture is similar or different to where you move to can be the ultimate key to success abroad.

Jamie has spent a total of three years living in France, and speaks French and Spanish fluently. She is a graduate of Thunderbird School of Global Management (MBA), Georgetown University (BS), and has a certificate in Executive and Organizational Coaching from NYC.
