Big Life Decision


The Network Guy

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here ever thought about moving to another country on their own in a bid to start a new life for themselves, .... and for a little excitement.

 

I'm actually going to do it. I have my own business which I plan to expand, the only thing that is both worrying and exciting to me is that i'm doing it all on my own. I'm bascially starting out all again. I guess it's a big life decision for me that I felt I had to make, anyone ever thought of doing the same thing, or has done it before?

 

I'm going to be moving from the UK to America

<p>what do you do for a living and how do you know you will be able to make money at it in the United States? </p><p> </p><p>

Don't take my questions the wrong way. I've moved out of state (halfway across the country) twice and that wasn't such a big deal but moving countries is a bit more severe.</p><p> </p><p>

Also just to clear this up there is not a girl involved in this decision on either front is there? One you're leaving or has left and not one you're joining or wants you to right?</p>

Goodluck dude. Only thing that will suck is meeting brand new people all over again.

I seen this and had to laugh. I've often thought of moving over that way many times. For almost the exact same reasons. I'm quite curious of a few things. May I PM you a few questions?

MLT as Mr. Network Guy's personal liaison to the states I insist that all questions be directed my way. Its imperative that Mr. Network Guy use this time as he focuses on the directional progress of moving horizontally in both literally and in his life.

 

That being said I will put on a waiting list....hows Wednesday?

<p>I moved from Aus to Canada in '03 for what I thought would be forever. I got really home sick though and came back after about a year. My biggest advice would be establishing a network asap, the people I met after a few months would've helped me even so much more if I knew them earlier. </p><p> </p><p>

Also let me know where you're moving to in the States, I know some very nice ppl all over that I'm sure would be happy to introduce you to a few social circles <img alt=":)" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/smile.png.142cfa0a1cd2925c0463c1d00f499df2.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /></p>

When you said moving countries I thought you meant really moving countries. I'm from Canada but I spent 18 months in the UK (a year in Edinburgh, a few months in the Lake District of England.) It's a fairly easy shift, there will be some things you find different or difficult. The size of North America will surprise you at first I'm sure.

 

Now I live in South Korea and THAT is a bigger shock. Since at least you have a common language you can speak ~ American!

 

I'm not sure if I'll ever live back in Canada, I well might. Being based on the East Coast would make for quicker and cheaper flights back to the Old Sod when you needed to (or needed a properly poured pint of ale.)

 

Good luck, I love traveling, so I'm all about going.

I'd suggest moving to a large city or getting used to driving everywhere. I understand that one of the big culture shock moments for people coming to America is the near-absence of public transportation. If you're not in a big city, a car becomes a major necessity.

 

Also, while I hear New York and California are both very nice, you might want to consider somewhere in the South. Generally speaking, living expenses are much, much lower, and I think you'll find that only about 25% of the stereotypes are actually true.

I'm sorry but if you say that again I will have to slap you with a shoe.

This. My reply was going to be "does moving from UK to America really count as changing countries?" Any differences are very minor compared to what you'd find in a country like, well, South Korea. Or even Brazil, where I lived for 3 years.

True. Although once you get out of the big cities in New York and California (usually people associate those states with New York City and Los Angeles), living expenses aren't as bad. Weather's a factor too. The south is good if you don't like snow. Stay away from the coast if you want to avoid hurricanes, in the east. No hurricanes on the west coast, but they have earthquakes...in between there's tornados.

I've been to a lot of different places in the U.S. I currently live in Missouri, but I was born and raised in Florida and I shall be moving back sometime in December (until August.)

 

Anyways, I'd have to say of all the places you could move to as a fresh start, New York and Cali would be on the BOTTOM of my lists.
