Do you feel like your experiences abroad have forever changed you?

Maybe you’re seeing your own country and culture with new eyes and are rethinking long-held beliefs and ways of life.

Maybe you feel like your friends and family just don’t get the “new” you.

And you can’t stop daydreaming about new places to explore, people to meet, languages to learn, and cultures to understand.


I get it!

I’ve been where you are right now.

Rest assured that what you’re going through is completely normal.

You know you don’t want to simply go back to what you were doing before you went abroad. And you know you want to infuse more global into you your life and career.

The problem? You don’t know where or how to start.

This is where Re-Entry Reality: Your Guide to Relaunching Yourself After Being Abroad comes in.



This guide brings together a number of resources and people to help you realize you aren’t alone and you aren’t crazy!

-Nathan Agin,


Would you like to…

  • Bring your global experiences into your everyday life?
  • Design a global career?
  • Share your global life with friends and loved ones?
  • Connect with other people enjoying global lives?
  • Go abroad again?
  • Harness your life-changing experiences to fuel your personal growth?
  • Create a more vibrant, exciting and meaningful life?

You see, going abroad forever changes you, but it’s only the catalyst.

Re-entry is where the real transformation takes place.

Re-entry is more than reverse culture shock. It’s more than those first few days or weeks after returning home. It’s more than realizing that your friends and family don’t want to see all of your photos.

Re-entry is your opportunity to relaunch yourself into your next global adventure!


Re-Entry Reality: Your Guide to Re-Launching Yourself After Being Abroad takes you through the re-entry journey step-by-step from coming home to relaunching yourself into your next global adventure.

Explore the different opportunities for your life, travel and career, then apply the practical actions that will relaunch you into the global life of your dreams.

You’ll never look back, except to enjoy and share your memories.

Why listen to me?


I know what it’s like to come home after living and traveling abroad and feel misunderstood, bored, and out of sync with friends and family. And I’ve spent 20 years working with students, expats, and travelers in transition. I understand re-entry from a personal and professional perspective, and I’ve learned how to make that crucial time a positive experience. Most importantly, I’m living a global life I love! Now, it’s your turn.
