Is 2019 the year you move to France?
The Paris Possibility
💜 5 months.
💜 8 ways to move to France.
💜 1 personalized action plan so you can make it happen.
Stop wondering if you can move to France. Start actually doing something about it.
Sometimes, we live our lives through daydreaming.
We go to the job that’s just paying our bills. We finish the coursework we feel we have to do to get the degree we think we need.
We think we want something more… but we don’t know how to get it.
The people around us may even tell us it’s crazy, or impossible, or irresponsible.
We don’t know how to do it.
We don’t believe we deserve for it to happen.
And the more time as we may spend researching how to make it happen… the more frustrated and disillusioned we get -- especially if we’re surrounded by people who don’t believe it’s ever going to work.
But what if 2019 is the year you’re going to make your dream come true, and move to France?
What if it’s the year you’re going to take the leap, and believe in yourself, and seize the opportunity of a lifetime - to live, and maybe work, abroad?
I spent my last year of college daydreaming constantly about how I would move to France after I graduated - and spend hours each week researching and pouring over websites about applying to schools, and finding an apartment, and figuring out all of the stuff I had to do myself to make that dream happen, all by myself.
And the trick to making that dream a reality?
Hold the belief.
Let someone else worry about the how.
And surround yourself with people who believe in and your dream.
This spring, I want to help you co-create your dream year in France, from envisioning what you want to do, to walking you through the different processes, step by step, that make it happen.
The Paris Possibility is an online program combining *mindset* work to help create your relocation to France, along with supporting *action* modules to help you figure out the best visa and job paths to make your dream a reality.
You’ll get complete guidance on 8 different ways of moving to France, from applying to the program (or the job), right through the visa application process.
The aim is to maximize your chance of success for each application you submit, so you can choose to come to France in the way that works BEST for you and your long-term goals.
As we create the foundation for imagining your dream life in France, we will cover the following *practical* topics for your move. The idea is to give you as many options as possible so you can find multiple paths to moving to France.
💜 Applying to TAPIF (Teaching Assistant Program in France), available before the end of December, since the TAPIF deadline is in January
💜 Applying to French university programs
💜 Enrolling in French language schools
💜 Becoming an au pair
💜 Teaching English as a Lecteur d’Anglais
💜 Applying to Jobs in France
💜 Work Holiday and French-American Chamber of Commerce Visas
💜 Visitor Visas and Long séjour temporaire visas, as a last resort
For each application type, we’ll go over:
💜 The ins and outs of the program: what it is, who it’s for, and what types of opportunities it opens up for you.
💜 How to apply and maximize your chances of success.
💜 How to apply for the appropriate visa.
💜 Why you may choose one program over another.
You can participate in any and all modules for all of the program types you want to apply for - whether that’s one or six. Applying to more opportunities increases your chance of success and your confidence that your move will happen.
In the Paris Possibility 2019, you will:
💜 Set a realistic timeline for your move to France in 2019, and identify all of the challenges you will need to overcome to make that move a reality.
💜 Get clear on how much money you need to make your move happen, and learn ways to manifest it so it’s available to you for your trip.
💜 Learn why it’s important to believe in your goal of moving before you start taking action, and learn ways to reinforce your belief and build energetic momentum towards your move
💜 Work through personal and professional mindset blocks that might make your move more challenging or less fulfilling
💜 Create space for your move (learn what that means and how to do it)
💜 Identify your own personal path in France, and the best way for you to achieve your personal and professional goals here (and naturalization or permanent residency, if that’s what you want.)
The Paris Possibility 2019 Course Modules
Here's what all participants get upon registering:
💜 All 8 modules of content and homework
💜 16 LIVE 90 minute group calls with me via Zoom from January - April (1 per week) to go over the course content LIVE and to answer your questions
💜 3 month membership to the FrancoFiles, including all downloads, tutorials, workshops, and office hours.
Plus, full access to the FrancoFiles for 3 months:
✽ Access to all member forums, with hundreds of questions about living in France *already answered.*
Know that you're not alone, and that others are dealing with the exact same issues you are! And the bright side is? We're confident it will all work out for you, and Allison will help you get there. Plus, there are already hundreds of questions and answers for you to peruse!
✽ Ask questions about your personal situation and get feedback from Allison in the forums daily.
Sometimes, it's hard to know if someone else's *similar situation* is just like the question you have right now, or if there's something you're missing. So understandably, you'll want to provide details on your own administrative saga and ensure the advice you're getting is personalized to fit YOUR NEEDS. Because between you and me, we know that too often, the answer in French bureaucracy-land is, "it depends," followed by the Gallic shrug.
✽ Watch instructional videos and tutorials walking you through French bureaucracy, step-by-step.
Learn the basics of navigating French bureaucracy and doing some of the most basic administrative procedures that affect everyone in France - from sending a registered letter, to figuring out whether you're eligible for assistance from CAF for housing or childcare. There will be new tutorials added to the library each month.
✽ Download vocabulary sheets and templates for correspondence in French.
Get the basic vocabulary you'll need for different administrative procedures at your fingertips. And if you need to send a letter in French, you can download one of our templates, plug in your name, address, and details on the situation (that you get help with in the forums, of course!) to send.
✽ Attend virtual office hours outside of group calls for a personalized and prioritized experience.
Virtual office hours are held monthly for video conference sessions for Allison to answer questions live on a first-come, first-serve basis. Not in France? We try to vary the timeslot for office hours to accommodate a variety of timezones.
