Episode 25: Creating and Seizing Opportunities with Melissa Llarena, Coach and Founder of Career Outcomes Matter
As early as high school, Melissa realized that if she was going to get what she wanted in life, she was going to chase it—even if that meant moving away from her home. She and her husband had had chances to work abroad for short periods of time but when the opportunity to move their home (and respective offices) to Australia presented itself, they couldn’t just say “no!”
In this episode, we talk to entrepreneur and coach Melissa Llarena. We talk about her upbringing in Queens, NY, how she decided she wanted to travel at an early age, and why she decided to leave the US to run her business and grow her family in Australia.
