    The Expat Experience

    in Work

    Have you ever fantasized about living and working abroad? Curious about what it takes to get international experience under your belt? Are you unsure about HOW to land those assignments and grow your career? Are you afraid of the unknown and turned down opportunities to work abroad? Deciding to accept an assignment and move abroad is an exciting but sometimes frightening experience, especially the first time you decide to do it. In a time of a global technology and mobility, and uncertain economy, many people are looking for ways to boost their careers and visibility within their companies. Because of such a pronounced shift in the way the world does business, international assignments are becoming a necessity for the upwardly mobile professional who is looking to rise within their field. Today my guests will discuss not only their own experiences, but also what to consider when engaging in expat assignments, how to navigate culture shock, how to prepare for the move, expectations in your new role and surroundings, how to make the most of your new experience and translate that into career success and resources for the Expat Woman.

    Traveling Solo, Living in Mexico, Exploring Malta and Barbados

    in Travel

    Enjoy a transformative travel experience as we travel to North Korea, Malta, Mexico and Barbados.


    Wendy Simmons is an intrepid traveler whose solo adventures have taken her from Ethiopia to North Korea and beyond.  She joins World Footprints radio to share her wealth of travel advice and gives us a preview of her book about her trip to North Korea.  She'll also share the outcome of a battle between a rat and her toothbrush.


    The island nation of Malta has been a melting point of cultures for centuries and it is home to some of the world's most treasured antiquities and world heritage sites.  But as Malta tourism representative Michelle Buttigeig tells us, Malta also has a strong Christian legacy and there is a lot of history still being discovered.


    A few margaritas and a desire for something new inspired award-winning author Carol Merchasin and her husband to leave their life behind in America for a new life in Mexico.  Carol's new book, "This Is Mexico:  Tales of Culture and Other Complications" chronicles her comical misadventures as an expat.


    The Caribbean island of Barbados stands out from its neighbors because of the island's unique history.  Standing at the crossroads of Africa, Europe, North and South America, this small island has been part of the world's global trading system for centuries.  In spite of its colonization by English explorers, Barbados was never a Crown colony.  We'll explore the uinque history with the help of reknown Barbados historian Dr. Karl Watson.

    Karin Smith - The Real Story of South Africa
    September 7, 2015
    Karin Ann Smith is an expat South African living in Texas. She studied Nursing at Grey's Hospital in Pietermaritzburg and worked in the Casino industry and for the biggest supermarket chain in South Africa, both upper management positions dealing with the Unions. She has been an activist calling for world attention to the genocide of the Boer people in South Africa for at least 10 years. Her family fled the civil war in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and eventually settled as farmers in South Africa, where her family of 5 siblings and both parents have suffered attacks by AK47 wielding gangs twice in the last 3 years, resulting in the death of her father last September. Karin talks about the history of South Africa during the days of the Dutch East India Company when the Cape of Good Hope was developed. She explains the early clash of the nomadic Boors and the African Zulu Nation along with the British colonization of the mineral rich region. We discuss the 1948 establishment of the Republic of South Africa by the National party, when apartheid laws were instituted as a way to maintain the peace between the minority White Afrikaners, the ruling Boers and warring indigenous Black tribes. Karin explains the political interests of the African National Congress (ANC) and underscores the track records of its communist faction, Joe Slovo, and the founder of the Armed Wing, Nelson Mandela. She also gives details related to the slow decline and decimation of the once predominately White South Africa, where taxpayer dollars cannot support the globalist takeover of a country lacking viable commerce from its majority population. Karin highlights some of the post-apartheid sanctions instituted by the ANC, along with the bigger picture of hatred towards Whites that has been stirred up by the ANC and their allies, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), led by Julius Malema.
