I found Rachel's bite-sized videos and material to be very educative and up-lifting. She covers many different issues that are important to consider when we move abroad and offers specific options for concrete action to make sure we can deal with all the challenges in a positive way. I would definitely recommend it to expats, especially if you are moving abroad for the first time and you want to know better what to expect and how you can make it a successful experience.~ Natalia Marques Leal
