Moving to live in a new country is an adventure equal in scope to the expeditions of great explorers. Your goal is more than just to move house, it is to move your life. The Mobile Life describes how you can plan and build a successful life for yourself (and your family) anywhere in the world. From making the decision to leave, to fitting in among new neighbours, this book describes a structured and innovative approach to relocating. Each chapter links the amazing story of Sir Ernest Shackletons 1914 Antarctic expedition to the skills, tools and mindset that help you manage the transition to create a new life anywhere.
Whether you move once or multiple times, whether you are about to move for the first time or have already moved, this book will make it possible for you to enjoy the mobile life.
What people are saying:
The Mobile Life encourages readers to better understand their own motives for an international move fostering a more positive state of min - an essential ingredient for surviving an often challenging experience. I found the book both entertaining as well as thought provoking.

A fascinating read that turns the standard view of culture shock on its head with the idea that we can use business skills to successfully move. A must for anyone looking for effective & practical strategies to manage the relocation experience.
