87. Jennifer Niessen and Becky Tyler - Navigating Change and Culture with an International Move

Happiness through Hardship

Apr 27 2022 • 50 mins

Have you ever fantasized about moving abroad and starting over in a new city? My former colleagues, Jennifer Niessen and Becky Tyler, turned this dream into a reality. I’m thrilled that they share their stories, stressors and silly adventures on moving and living overseas this week on “Happiness Through Hardship” - The Podcast. I worked with Jenn and Becky during my time at the Walt Disney Company. Their talent and dedication has allowed them to take their careers to the next level managing big projects, teams and high profile executives. Jenn and Becky both moved across the world and on this episode share key lessons learned about the importance of questions, communication and embracing discomfort. While their experiences speak to moving internationally, their messages apply to all of us going through moves, job changes or other transitions in life. Please check it out and let us know what you think…and wait until the end where exciting news is revealed.
