A 'how to' manual for the career oriented person wanting to thrive wherever he or she may be living in the world, No one knows how to do that better than Jo Parfitt. If you buy only one book this year, this is it.

Donnalee Bell, Senior Consultant, The Canadian Career Development Foundation wrote:

Not only is this is the bible for global nomads looking to establish their careers abroad, but it is so rich and informative it is also a must-have for those looking to start their next career adventure - wherever that may be.

Alison Cavatore, Editor-in-Chief of Global Living Magazine wrote:

Identifying passions and values is as critical to professional success abroad as it is on home turf. This step-by-step approach will guide the reader through the challenging process of maintaining a professional identity based on skill set, not physical location.


Author: Jo Parfitt

I have run my own business since I was 25, largely because I am a serial entrepreneur and cannot survive without the variety provided by being self-employed. After 10 years living and working abroad, we returned to England in 1997 and Summertime Publishing was born. In 2005 we moved to The Hague, then to Malaysia in 2014 and now back in the Netherlands. I have developed a business based on writing, publishing, mentoring and teaching what I know. I know how to write, how to publish, how to run a business despite international moves, how to network and how to live abroad. I find countless opportunities to change lives through my writing, teaching, speaking and mentoring and love nothing more than to 'share what I know to help others to grow'.
