each day passes now, the more I realise just how much I
need to align my life with my VMP (Vision, Mission, Purpose). This time
is a very exciting one for me. I am no longer as 'stuck' as I was when
we first began our sessions, and I can visibly see my life moving more
towards how I would like it to be everyday. I feel new opportunities
and ideas flowing to me everyday, and I can distinctly feel I have so
much more courage to live my life MY way, than I did a few months ago.
I would like to thank you for that. The support and resources you have
given to me have been the major reason for many of the shifts I have
made. I can't wait to be able to give that gift back to others!"

to tell you first, that I love your book! I have read it
cover to cover, and as a traveler myself, I feel such a connection with
the personal stories in "A Global Citizen's Perspective….it is so
helpful and refreshing to see a career guide for adventurous folks like
ourselves! I didn't think I would ever find a career counseling book
that would be so tailored to my goals and desires."

What Readers Say....
have just finished The Global Citizen (literally! just!)
and I have to tell you I think you've written a fabulous book. Not only
a great resource for "people like me" (global citizens who double as
expat wannabes), but the first book that #1, asked me to think about
why I wanted to explore the outside world, and #2, spoke to those of us
who find ourselves longing to live internationally mid-life--long after
the usual resources and programs apply. I'm 40, I quit a corporate (VP
sales and marketing) gig almost 3 years ago, and I have (very!)
gradually realized its not too late to pursue a longstanding dream of
living abroad and earning global citizenship. And honestly, most of the
books I have found on the subject of creating opportunities overseas
are entirely focused on 22 year olds. I wish I'd taken off at 22, but I
didn't, and I appreciate your including stories and profiles of other

I highly recommend this book to anyone moving abroad, and my advice would be to read it in its entirety from front to back. You do not want to miss any piece of advice that you can only gain from experience."
I am beginning to explore the idea of living in Germany and, in doing so, purchased your book. I have to say that, among the books I purchased, yours was the most comprehensive and the most current.”
Thank you so much (said very heartfelt) for taking the time to write such an inspiring book! …You helped focus my thoughts and challenge some issues. I will truly use your advice…”
I want to thank you for putting together a book that really has inspired me to follow through with my dreams…”

Back Cover Comments
I could scarcely put this book down....It's about having adventures, and it's about fulfilling dreams. It goes into great detail, suggests new possibilities you haven't even thought of, and - - has knocked my plans for the next five years into a cocked hat. I'm going! Can't recommend this book highly enough.",

Career advice books are not hard to come by. Truly helpful ones are. The key is to strike a balance between providing enough general advice that everyone can use it and enough specific advice that people can actually take what they're learning and apply it to advance their careers. Elizabeth Kruempelmann found the right formula. This book is packed with both stories and useful information for the international careerist among us!",

An insightful and practical guide to living the international life. As an international employer and 'Global Citizen' myself, this book is a must read for it factually and thoroughly covers the sometimes complex game of creating the international experience in real terms. I wish it was available 15 years ago when I was starting my career. I really enjoyed the book, especially the attention to 'knowing oneself' and the stages an expat goes through with every move... I actually learned quite a bit and can use it internally with my work. Now I have a reference guide to point to.",

You really do have a great book--what an incredible amount of work. It should be a wonderful resource for many, many people... Your book really gave me the travel bug. I felt like packing my bags right away!",
Jean Blomquist, Reader from Albuquerque, NM
The book is as enjoyable to read as it is useful, and it is a marvelously useful manual for 'uncovering your global passion' and nurturing your wanderlust into true global competencies. The book contains not just information on global opportunities but more importantly strategies for defining what you want, how to get there, and how to get the maximum out of international experiences. The encouraging testimonials from people that found ways to turn their global dreams into realties do not avoid the serious self assessment, planning, and sometimes sacrifice that was required to assure success.",
