Nicolle Merrill: Global Careers as a Way to Travel More
Join me as I talk with global career coach Nicolle Merrill about the  twists and turns of her many international work and travel experiences. A self-proclaimed professional job hopper, she talks about how the stigma around fluid careers is disappearing as the way we work changes. Her non-traditional career path has included work as a private jet  travel writer, a study abroad advisor, a global career coach, and an AI  chatbot designer.  She then founded Future Skills, a company that  smashes traditional career advice and show people how to build  adventurous careers. Nicolle teaches digital nomads how to get remote  jobs, work in foreign countries, and upskill for the jobs of the future.  It’s a fun conversation, with great insights, tips and lots of  laughter. And I have to say, I’m glad to know I’m not the only one with  “shiny object syndrome."

Kicking off Season 2 with Help from a Special Guest
I kick off Season 2 by having a conversation with my 8 year old niece  Leah (recorded while vacationing last Christmas in Mexico). It’s short  and sweet - and all about travel of course.  After we talk, I share  about my travel role models as a kid, plus give some updates – including   a recent big change in my life related to  travel, finances and  podcasting. I wrap up with my current  travel goals, where you can find  me in 2019,  a fun announcement and more. This season I’ll be adding a short segment at the end of each guest  interview where I’ll either share a quick travel hack or answer listener  questions – so if there’s something you want to know about racking up  airline miles and hotel points, drop me a line at  lisette@jetsetlisette.com or on social media: @jetsetsetlisette.
