Janet Sussman

Expert Contributor

Janet has a passion for travel and immersing herself in the local culture as she does so. To make the most out of life, she draws from her many life experiences as well as her plethora of careers as an entrepreneur, event planner, co-founder of a non-profit organization, and, later, a teacher, which she continues to do online as she bounces from country to country.

Through experience, she shares her hacks and how-tos on everything from teaching online, maintaining a savvy travel lifestyle via international house sitting, to becoming an expat in Panama in retirement (not to be confused with slowing down!). Consider her cultural "ah-ha" realization that "no one gets to decide what 'right' is. Right is only a perspective based on one's own norms and customs."

Through her many adventures around the world, Janet has learned to never say never, but she has also decided to eliminate the word someday from her vocabulary. She brings to her writing the excitement of stepping out of her comfort zone in order to see the proverbial pot of gold at the end of each rainbow.
