Surviving Voluntary Exile: How to overcome common obstacles to making a successful life transition

If you’ll remember, I created a course called Surviving Voluntary Exile: Overcoming Common Obstacles to Making a Successful Life Transition a few months ago designed to help those struggling with living in a new country at CourseCraft. That course is still available, but I wanted to expand the information’s reach. I know that some live in areas where regular internet access makes taking online courses difficult.

So today I’m pleased to announce that Surviving Voluntary Exile: How to overcome common obstacles to making a successful life transition is available in ebook and print format. The ebook has all the basic information and links to the optional readings, while the print book has journal pages for you to complete the activities that will help you create your best life in your adopted country.

You can get the ebook free from Amazon for the next few days.

I hope that with these new methods of distribution, more exiled, deported, migrant, or expat women will find a way to make it work despite the hardships.

Surviving Voluntary Exile: Overcoming Common Obstacles to Making a Successful Life Transition Online Course

If you’ve followed my blog for a time, you’ll likely already know that I have made it my mission to provide practical information and support to those, especially women, who have moved to Mexico, particularly rural Mexico.

I love my life in rural Mexico. However, that has not always been true. When I first arrived, the lack of basic services like water, sewage and electricity caused my daily activities to be physically (not to mention mentally) exhausting. I was often depressed. It took me years to find my happy space. Looking back, I can pinpoint several life-changing moments that propelled me to create the life I have now. This process is what I want to share with others who are struggling with life in Mexico.

To that end, I’ve created an online course via CourseCraft that I hope will provide support and guidance for those that most need it. This course is entitled: Surviving Voluntary Exile: Overcoming Common Obstacles to Making a Successful Life Transition and is designed to not only identify common reasons why you might not be living to the fullest in your new country but also what you can do to reduce, if not eliminate these obstacles to happiness.

Since I know that finances are a concern for many who have moved to Mexico, (the pesos is extremely low right now) I have priced this course at $9.99 USD during the month of January making it the perfect time for you to enroll. I know, I know! I’ll never make any money that way! That’s ok. It will all work out somehow!

So if you are having a hard time adjusting to life in Mexico, or know someone who is, check out  Surviving Voluntary Exile: Overcoming Common Obstacles to Making a Successful Life Transition.

Why not make 2019 your best year in Mexico yet?

Here’s what participants are saying:

So much of the information out there on moving to another country is either focused on those moving for work or for retirement and only focuses on nitty-gritty details. What about if you are moving for another reason, or if you have the life details ironed out but want to prepare for the emotional rollercoaster that is sure to follow? This course is different; it is really about the internal changes we experience and how we help ourselves not be overwhelmed by our feelings. I found it very helpful in conceptualizing how we can change our reactions to events and therefore increase our happiness. Not only that, but many of the techniques or info can be applied to other areas of our lives!

I really enjoyed the Surviving Voluntary Exile course. I really feel that it has excellent information for anyone overcoming obstacles in their life ( aren’t we all?!). The course designer has used her experience to make the path for other women to be easier and to have some idea of the challenges they will be facing. She approaches the lessons with positivity and humor. She really has an excellent perspective on this topic. It leaves you feeling like you can overcome the obstacles that lie ahead, and her positive attitude becomes contagious. There are assignments each week that are uplifting and not burdening. It’s information that you can come back to again and again to help you be successful.
