There’s a quote that I love: ‘If it were easy then everyone would do it’. 

This week, we are excited to share with you an extra special show. What you are about to hear is a podcast that was put together by the members of our private New Zealand Calling community. The subject is about their fears about moving to New Zealand.

This show is fabulous.

Wherever you are on your New Zealand adventure, whatever stage of the game you’re in, this episode will put to rest those niggling fears and doubts and help you to understand that the thoughts that you are having are all part of the package.

Completely normal. And usually unjustified.

Remember. If it were easy, then everyone would do it.

A little back story…

Last week I received an email from a guy. It said: ‘I want to make the move to NZ but to be honest, there are so many fears that hold me back from pursuing my adventure, I can’t ever see me making it.’ 

I am very grateful to that man for sending me that email, as it gave me the idea for this week’s show. And hopefully, he will go on to listen to this show and realise that he is not alone.

I reached out to our NZ private community and asked our members to share their biggest fears when it came to moving to NZ.

Here’s what they came up with.

 Moving to New Zealand Fears. The Biggest Ones.

➡️ Leaving family and friends behind. Not having a support system for our children.

➡️ Never getting alone as a couple as we won’t have grandparents or other family members to look after the kids.

➡️ Packing up my house and getting it ready to sell/rent.

➡️ Not ‘making it’. Losing my job when I get to NZ and having no support.

➡️ Our children growing up and resenting us for taking them away to the other side of the world and away from their families.

➡️ Making the wrong choice. Knowing that the ‘doubters’ were right.


Thank you to each of you for being so honest and open about fears. This episode will help a lot of people. Thanks, guys x
