Have you ever had a dream that lights you up inside and fills you with life? A dream that pulls and nags at you until you pick it up and embrace it. One that clings to you until you let go of your fears to face it. A dream that is not hatched out of the perfect plan or heaps of money but out of passion. Finally, you decide to chase this dream. You chase it because its chasing you.
In two days, that is exactly what I plan to do. I am moving to Bordeaux to grow my FlitInc business and audience, internationally. Ever since childhood, I’ve believed the world is my oyster. Maybe this began with my first trip abroad in the sixth grade. Evoked with wanderlust, I walked the Parisian streets breathing in the fresh air of enchantment, thinking to myself, how cool would it be to see the world. As an adult, I’ve hoped and dreamed that my professional journey would somehow take me abroad. But when the opportunity didn’t present itself, like many of us wish it does, I took the leap to manifest it for myself.
Bordeaux is a city largely known for its wine, but if you look a little further, you will soon find out this Sleeping Beauty has more to offer. In fact, my biggest lure to it is that it’s an international hub for business but still a close-knit community. Just what I’m dreaming of as I expand my business overseas. For all those reasons and more, I chose to start my next chapter there.
My hope is that you come along with me. That you will follow my journey and be inspired by it; that you dream and develop your professional goals and aren’t afraid to follow them. My goal is to see the world from a professional lens: to learn how women operate in different business cultures and gain insight on what it is like to be a professional around the world. What I plan to do with this knowledge is share it with you, hoping you will come to realize, the world is your oyster.
