Having a portable business comes with its own set of challenges so it’s important to have the right tools to help things run as smoothly as possible. Here are 10 tools that we’ve found to be helpful in our own experience as location independent therapists working with clients across borders and time zones.
Are you living abroad? Do you feel like you “suddenly” don´t know yourself anymore? Are you feeling insecure and don´t know how to behave in your environment? If so, you might be experiencing the so-called culture shock, which is part of adapting to a new place, culture, and environment. In this article, I will explain what culture shock is, how you find out if it affects you and what you can do to deal with it.
Starting, growing, and running a successful online business as a mental health professional is a lot of work. Being a location independent therapist, who travels the world and/or sees clients internationally is even more work. Most of us who have been doing this for years still spend over half of our time doing non-client related tasks like writing blog posts, newsletters, social media posts, or other marketing-related content. Then, there is the admin side of running a business, from client notes to taxes and figuring out international legislations when working across borders and time zones.
