I just returned from Finland and had a good meeting with my publisher Talentum. We agreed that the manuscript needs to be done by mid-February and the provisional publication month is May 2010. I am in the final process of interviews of many interesting emigrants and expats that want to share their story. These people include professionals from different countries; from Asia, Africa, South-America, Europe, US etc. I have to say that this book has been fun to write as it has so many interesting things that I am able to share. I am also going to have an international version of the book as it will have broader appeal for sure. This upcoming week I have scheduled many new interviews and will select the most interesting ones as profiles in the end of the book.
Also, I am in the process of building an educational program around these topics as they are extremely important lessons that can be learned from people that have done it, seen it and ready to share what they know and feel about living outside their respective country. I have been in a fortunate position to know people around the world and all of these connections and discussions I have had has accumulated knowledge and experiences that one can’t buy from anywhere.
