I Just (Moved to the South of France)! Now What? with Judith Keys

Hey Friends,

In this episode, Judith Keys shares her remarkable story of making the life-altering decision to move to France in May 2013.

She reflects on her transition from a corporate job in Scotland to the serene landscapes of Provence, all in pursuit of a more fulfilling dream beyond the confines of a standard 9-5 routine. She takes us through her journey of creating new beginnings, and establishing two thriving businesses, "My Food in France" and "My Best Friend in France."

Discover the essence of Judith's mission, which is to help people not only appreciate the delights of French cuisine (and others) through cookery classes and her exclusive online membership but also navigate the social and emotional intricacies of living in a foreign country.
