Building An Expat Business….Life is Never What It Appears To Be!

I’m sat at my computer attempting to write my first blog post in a while! Life has been pretty crazy here in Italy. In the space of a few weeks almost everything about my life has changed and definitely for the better.

It is pretty challenging trying to set up any kind of business in Italy, the bureaucracy is unlike anything I have ever experienced before and the whole country in general seems to be at least 20 years behind in terms of technology and business process…I find myself bashing my head against a brick wall more often than not! but I will continue and see where this journey leads me!

It hasn’t all been work though! Over the past couple of weeks I have visited the World Cup Ski-ing in Meribel during the week (a rare trip away without husband and children) and experienced my 1st taste of Dutch week with my crazy friends from the town that we ski in at a weekend (with the husband and children this time of course).

My challenge now, is to take advantage of every precious moment I have left of our posting, to build a strong network of friends and contacts and a business that thrives and can sustain our dreams.  For me there is simply no other option.

Thank you for taking the time to read
