Podcast (22).png


Moving, on its own, is a daunting task. Moving because of work takes the stress and doubles it. However, moving to another continent is a whole different ball game altogether. So, when Noa Ronen moved from Israel to the U.S, she thought things would remain the same. Little did she know that adapting to a different culture and professional atmosphere would not be as easy as she had imagined.


Other than the physically tiring activities associated with moving, most people overlook the psychological stress of moving. 


Once you decide to move, the first thing you need to understand is that it won't be easy, neither will it be the same. Things won't be the same, and the sooner you learn to accept that, the faster you'll adapt to your new surroundings. In today's amazing episode, we're happy to have with us Noa Ronen, who talks about how she managed to successfully move to the U.S, albeit with a few hiccups, and how she was able to overcome the struggles associated with moving to a new place.
