The latest Podcast with Expats episode features Nicole Brewer, a very dynamic woman constantly on the go. Nicole is an expat currently living in Oman, and has been there for the past 3 years. Prior to that, she was living in South Korea. She is an English teacher by profession during the day, and a burgeoning entrepreneur the rest of the time. This episode discusses life and expat living in the Arabian Peninsula.
Podcast with Expats Episode 5 with Nicole in Oman:
Nicole is one busy woman and l was so glad she found time to talk to me about her expat life. I have been a big fan of hers for a bit. She runs one of the bigger Facebook groups called iluv2globetrot along with her business partner Renee. It is a group full of seasoned as well as wannabe travelers. A gathering place to discover and ask questions about travel, be it for work purposes or just vacation. Nicole and iluv2globetrot have been featured in National Geographic, Huffington Post and other news outlets.
On this podcast, we talk about:
- Where the heck Oman is ;-)
- What prompted her decision to become an expat
- How she ended up in Oman
- Job credentials
- Her life now compared to her life in the U.S prior
- Cost of living in her new country ( I want that sort of arrangement…sweet!)
- Her current salary and how much of it she saves
- The employment visa and the length of time it took to obtain
- Her iluv2globetrot plans as a viable side to main hustle
- Her never diminishing wanderlust
- Plans for the future
- Her advice for anyone contemplating doing the same
It’s always cool to speak to someone who has clarity about their lives. Her story could have easily been just another statistic after things went sour. Instead, she pulled herself out of the funk and made lemonade from her lemons. Very commendable.
