New venture

Starting a new venture is never easy, which is why you haven't seen many articles on this blog recently. Since 2016, I have been working on becoming a life coach. The good news is I am now a Core Essentials graduate from CoachU and am pursuing an advanced corporate coaching degree and ICF certification as well as supporting my amazing clients.

So, if you want to follow my writing, go to my new coaching site's articles. I will keep Life in the Swiss Alps up and running as a reference. And... who knows... I may write again for it when time allows.

Expat marriage saved by bell

At a recent dinner, an English woman told the following story.

It was her wedding anniversary, and her husband had given her a large present. Upon peeling off the layer of wrapping, she found a vacuum cleaner box. Where was that diamond or key to the fancy car?

"I thought of divorcing him," she said laughing, "until I looked inside the box and found an antique Swiss cowbell."

Driving home that night, our friend's story turned in my head. How amazing that she could be satisfied by a cowbell. Love it. Only in Switzerland.
