Have you ever wanted to move to New Orleans? Wonder where to start and what you need to consider? This is the episode for you!
In today’s show, I sit down with three people who made the leap and moved to New Orleans.
Jennifer is a married mother of two young boys. She and her husband Andrew made the move in 2016 and are enjoying raising their kids as New Orleanians.
Terry and his wife Deah could have moved anywhere they wanted. After a bit of reflection, they packed their bags and moved from California to the Crescent City in early 2017.
Lara Beth and Gary fell in love with New Orleans as visitors. Almost on a whim she applied for a job in New Orleans, and two months later, they were New Orleanians. They arrived just a few months ago, in the summer of 2017.
You’ll hear their stories, including:
how they picked a neighborhood
what life has been like since the move
the things they enjoy, and
We discuss schools, taxes, headaches, and only-in-New-Orleans experiences that make it all worthwhile. We also answer questions submitted by fellow listeners in ourFacebook group.
All this and more on today’s show!
