TN132: Keeping up with your goals while living on the move
It is already quite difficult to keep up with our goals and grow our businesses when life is so busy, but it can get even more complicated when living abroad and moving from one country to another.
Mariam Ottimofiore shares how she managed to commit to her goal, finish, publish and promote her book while going through a messy transition and moving with her family from Dubai (UAE) to Accra (Ghana).
“I had to finish this, I owed it to myself!”
