Mariza Taillefer is host of A Broad Abroad podcast which talks about the extraordinary and exciting lives of expats. She interviews people who packed up and left everything they knew to embark on the adventure of adapting to a new culture. She shows how to overcome language barriers and culture shock to experience new and exciting lives abroad. Listen to their inspirational stories to get insights on how to live in other countries and make the most out of life! Mariza has lived in Brazil for the last 3 years and has used her MBA experience to teach English in a business setting.

We talk about how she got out of the 9 to 5 life and the politics within it to follow a dream she saw in a movie. We then talk about her route from Bali, to India, to Italy and finally to Brazil where she has lived for the last 3 years. There she has had to learn to deal with the laid back culture and the new way of doing things. She talks about the great mindset of what you can learn from the setbacks instead of getting frustrated. She also talks about how she got her job doing something she knows very much about where she earns about $50/hr.

Her joke: "There are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't"
