E8 – My Journey from Dubai to Vancouver exactly one year ago


It has been exactly one year since we got on a plane and said goodbye to Dubai. It’s been a year full of firsts, adventure, self-discovery. I will not say it was the easiest thing I ever did… but I sure am glad we did it, I wouldn’t have done it any other way.

It wasn’t a decision we made lightly. It was years in the planning… but then when my visa arrived, with a 6-month window in which I had to land in Canada…. everything suddenly became real. The life we had built for over 20 years in Dubai, our business, our contacts… the fact that we were finally finding our groove – we were going to have to give that all up to start over.

It was a scary decision, but once we had decided, there was no looking back. And here we are, exactly one year later, and I couldn’t be happier!

There are a number of key takeaways from this episode, but I guess one of the most important ones is: once you make a decision, commit to it 100%. Don’t let cold feet get in your way… or think about the “what ifs”. Go at it with your full effort and see it through to the end.

All in all, this last year, we rebranded our business, pivoted our business model and started life from scratch here. In this episode, I share with you some of the learnings in the past year of migrating to a new country with two young kids and as an entrepreneur.
