Our Philosophy

Here are some of our thoughts on why you should travel and work abroad

What to do if you don’t hear back after applying

What to do if you get rejected

It’s a discouraging experience that can leave you frustrated asking yourself “where did I go wrong?”. Was it my resume? Not enough experience? Do I…

Overhead on Life

Today I want to talk about the overhead on your life. That is, “How much you spend just to live and take care of all of your basic necessities on a day-to-day, week-to-week, or month-to-month basis?” I was just on my balcony appreciating the view that I have behind me thinking to myself: “God, I…

We Don’t Need Coffee, We Need Stimulation.

  I was just about to go buy a cup of coffee, and I thought to myself about the need that we have for stimulants, and this need for stimulants is actually much deeper than we realize. We think that we just need energy, but in reality, it’s not that we need energy, it’s that…
