‘J’ is for job; but also for jet setter
So if I were offered the opportunity to go work abroad and pursue an accolade-worthy career, I would not think it through twice!
Even if there may lie challenges ahead and irrespective of the adjustments I would have to make and despite any reservations; I am sure of one thing. It. Gets. Better.
