In today’s episode, Vicki tells her “favorite mistake” story about getting divorced and giving away the business she had spent ten years building. How did this mistake lead to a better situation that she “couldn’t have done otherwise”? Why was moving to Europe more difficult than Vicki expected and what did she learn from that?

We talk about that story and other topics including:

  • Moving to Europe, hadn’t factored in culture, biz culture, network, language… — a mistake to assume that
  • Tell us about the coaching work that you do… who do you work with? And where?
  • Do you help coach people through mistakes?
  • Overcoming expectations of what others think our life should look like
  • Best thing / worst thing about moving there?
  • Expectations – can be good or unfair expectations?
