Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

I have counselled a lot of people over the years in terms of their decision to move permanently to New Zealand and I can tell you that based on that experience, you can almost feel the weight of the decision as people weigh up the pros and cons. Uprooting yourself from your home, job, schools, family, friends and life to then try and recreate or reinvent (whatever your aim is) that in another country is a herculean undertaking.

That decision can be even more complex when trying to wade through the endless social media commentary from those who have done so previously - some successfully and some not so much. In my experience, those who succeed at making the move are too busy enjoying their new life to complain about it and those that failed, are often (not always) the ones who started the process for the wrong reasons and were equally ill-prepared.

For what it is worth, I do have some advice to share and the irony of doing so online, given my earlier comments about social media, havent escaped me but I hope that these suggestions provide some practical advice to anyone tossing up the big migration decison.
