More than 11 years ago, my husband and I decided that moving to Mexico was in our near future. We were living in Virginia at the time and I felt I should do some research on what our lives would be like once we moved. So I signed up for several Expat sites and a few Expat groups and tried to find answers to my questions by searching through those archives.
Well, I have to say that I was less than prepared to make a successful life transition to rural Mexico. I hadn’t taken into consideration that Expat experiences were quite a bit different from the sort of life I found myself living in Mexico. It was a difficult time. It took me several years to figure out that I could change my living conditions and more importantly, my attitude about the hardships. Since then, although there are times that still try the patience of a saint (which I’m not) I’ve made strides to creating a life that I love.
This is the reason I was so excited to take Jennifer Robin Lee’s ecourse Move to Mexico Now Intro and share with readers who have yet to make the move to Mexico. Aside from immigration questions (which will be answered in an upcoming course) I had questions on how to actually get my family organized to make the move, what things I should/shouldn’t bring, what sort of life I would have once we arrived, and how we would earn money to maintain our new life.
Now the course doesn’t give you a set of answers to these questions. After all, what one person needs to create a satisfying life is naturally not the same as another. Instead, the activities are designed for you to examine your own unique situation using tools such as the SWOT questionnaire, visualization boards, goal classifications and a good ol’ fashioned pen and paper. Knowing what you have going into the move will help you move forward towards reaching that ultimate goal of living your best life in Mexico.
So if you are even just considering making the move to Mexico, I encourage you to check out the Move to Mexico Now Intro course while it is still at its introductory price of $29.
