The ten weeks "Own Business Creation program, specifically designed for expats were very helpful for me in terms of understanding of how to handle a business in a new country when you are an expat.

Thanks to Marina’s online program “Expat Spouse Career Development”, I have expanded my business network to a new level, found new opportunities for potential cooperation within project management and defined my career perspectives.

During my four years in Sweden, I have gone through a long and challenging process of establishing myself in this country despite having participated in other programs for foreign academics.Daria Bondareva, Sustainability Compliance Reviewer
Expat Spouses Career Development program has been a real eye-opener for me. The course has actually been a catalyst for several huge changes in my life. Thank you for helping me to take a great leap into the unknown! I especially appreciate how personalised your service is; there is nothing else quite like it here in Sweden! I want to thank you for the course. What you are doing is wonderful."Victoria B., foreign academic in Sweden
It was a very stressful time - a new country with an unknown language, adaptation in a new culture, exams at the university, part-time job, and doctors said, that I have severe problems with my health conditions. I was burned out and emotionally drained. Before working with Marina, I felt completely broken inside. I couldn't do my daily chores. I've started to cry whenever I remembered my health troubles. I was so scared. Marina helped me got emotionally detached from the problems and start to think more rationally, I had to make crucial decisions in my life without fear. Marina helped me a lot. I felt more relieved. Interesting fact, in the process of working and communicating with Marina, we talked a lot about emotional problems, their causes and effects. Step by step, we understood my emotional state, my feelings, and experiences. We began to discover new facets of my psychological traumas. It's like links in a chain. Thanks to Marina's untraditional tools, selected explicitly for expats, it happens a profound transformation inside you, that helps radically change your life. I've received phenomenal results, and I'm very grateful to Marina! She helps me to explore my inner world. I began to understand myself better and learned to treat myself with love. This is serious inner work, but this is the best present for yourself and Marina is the best mentor along this way.Vera M., Austria, Image by Peggy und Marco Lachmann-Anke
