Jo Parfitt

Tens of thousands of people now move overseas for work or pleasure... Going to live in a new country can be the catalyst for a sea-change in your career. Opportunities that existed in one country may dry up in another. Sometimes it makes sense not to pursue one single career path but to adopt a shifting, growing, portfolio of portable careers. Read this book and be prepared...

Section 1 arms you with practical advice on how to choose a business idea that works for you and how to develop the right mindset.

Section 2 shares the remarkable stories of more than 23 international entrepreneurs who have maintained and built rewarding portable careers in all four corners of the world.

Section 3 provides extensive links, resources and tips for expatriate entrepreneurs living in 25 different countries.

If you are considering working for yourself in a foreign land, then this inspirational guide belongs in your suitcase, wherever you may be, wherever you may go and whatever you hope to become.


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'.
