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"
