RS232: What It's Really Like To Live Abroad

In this episode of the Rogue Startups Podcast, Craig is joined by Steve Mcleod from the Bootstrapped podcast. Steve is also the founder of Feature Upvote and the acquirer of Saber Feedback. Bootstrapped has been creating helpful episodes for software bootstrappers since 2013. The formatting of the show consists of episodes which are interviews with experts, open discussions between bootstrappers, and (every now and then) solo episodes where Steve does a deep dive into a business topic.

Today, Craig and Steve are talking about what it’s like being an expat and running a business abroad (specifically in Europe). While the positives of living and working in a different country are showcased on various social media accounts, the downsides aren’t always covered. So they decided to share information about some of the more difficult aspects like bookkeeping, language barriers, running multiple businesses, work/life balance, and being homesick.
