The major reason for failure among expatriates is when one of the other people in the house has to leave temporarily for a few weeks or months. When I’m sitting here talking to you, I’m not going to leave you. I am not going to let you take over my life.

In other words, the major reason for failure among expatriates is when you are a single parent. And this is actually pretty common, actually. Many expats in the United States who are not married have a friend or family member who has to move back to the country for a few months or a year.

It’s generally because the person you have to move with also has to move at a certain time. The reason for this is because children are very different and you can’t just pack a bag and move everyone with you. If you are a single parent and you have to move, it is generally because there is an emergency.

This is something that I am guilty of. I moved to the United States with my wife when we were in our twenties. She had just graduated college, had two kids, and was working. When we got to where we were staying, the entire house was a mess and we had to move everything in our bedroom and into the garage. I also had to move my stuff into my dorm room, which was a big disappointment.

Moving to the States is not failure. It might be a financial challenge, it might be a physical challenge, but moving is not failure. The key to success is to be self-aware and to stay in control of the situation, even when it seems all you can do is moan.

When people move to the States, they don’t just move into a new place with the intention of living there. They often expect to be able to use the house for the rest of their lives. That’s what I did. I expected that I’d be able to stay in the house for the rest of my life. I didn’t expect that I’d have to make a lot of big changes and move into a dorm. So I guess I’m not really a failure.

You’re not really a failure, which is good because you don’t need to be a failure to succeed. If you believe you can succeed by learning what you need to learn to succeed, then you can be a success. Thats the basic premise of success – you can succeed by learning how to succeed.

The problem for expatriates is that the more they invest in their own lives, the more they become invested in the lives of others. The reality is that expats are not all that successful, and most of them are not even that happy. Some of them are successful and have a great life, but most of them are not.

The best expat I’ve ever met was an Air Force officer in the Persian Gulf who went from high school to a college to become a high-powered international lawyer. He was successful and happy, but he wasn’t really successful at his job and wasn’t really happy. He was successful in his job, but he didn’t really enjoy it. That’s the problem. Most expats don’t have a good job and they don’t enjoy it. It’s not that they’re lazy.

Most expats are successful and happy, but not all of them. A lot of the time, they just don’t want to be. Many of them just want to be in a position to have a good life, but they dont want to be in a position of responsibility. They want to be in a position where they have power and influence, but don’t want to have to deal with a lot of unpleasant work.

Wow! I can't believe we finally got to meet in person. You probably remember me from class or an event, and that's why this profile is so interesting - it traces my journey from student-athlete at the University of California Davis into a successful entrepreneur with multiple ventures under her belt by age 25
