Preparing to live and work overseas

For anyone planning to live overseas you should be well prepared. Although you may have traveled overseas often for a holiday, it's very different when you are living there, working with local employees and customers, every day for an extended period. Many people make this mistake of assuming they'll be okay, until they realise that life isn't always so glamorous.
