side hustle income and personal development also stay

I am working on an ebook for women with a specific health issue.


Hi, my name is Birgit. I am half German and half English. 20 years ago I left Germany to live abroad. 10 years ago I began splitting my time between 3 continents. How was all that possible? I will share with you what I learned, perhaps you can make use of a tip or two. In 2006 I started my first blog and had a lot of fun with it but didn’t realise that it could be something more serious.

I am back now, with this website, a place to tell the story of my unconventional life as it unfolds. I also want to take the time and share some of my sidehustle income tips and strategies from my unconventional life with you. I have things to say about long distance relationships across continents, housesitting for ‘free’ accommodation and saving travel money, I also had the misfortune or perhaps it was excellent fortune of falling seriously ill in America, I will write about how I got lucky at a time that could have been the worst.

* If you are here because you are interested in hiring a petsitter or in getting paid to petsit then I recommend signing up to Rover, which is effectively a booking platform to introduce pet owners to pet sitters, streamlining the process for both. Rover take a fee from both pet owner and sitter, read my articles on why I like it and how much it helped us financially in 2018 when I was very sick and couldn’t take other work.  Use this link to save $20 on your first petsitter booking and petsitters, you get free tips from me to help you do as well as possible on the site.
