Author Biography

Biography
Ndeye Awa Labadens, MBA, is an author, entrepreneur and world traveler. Born in Senegal, West Africa, Labadens father was a doctor who frequently relocated due to his career. The constant moving taught her a valuable lesson: how to adapt to new environments and how to quickly find the best fare, accommodations, and local hot spots in a new city.

Fluent in both French and English, Labadens has used her love of travel and exploration to channel her energy into seeing the world, learning about new cultures and meeting new people. Most recently traveling to Australia, Ndeye has written her first book, Australian Memories: Discover Aussie Land and the Mysterious Red Center, in which she details her adventures in different cities around the continent. She takes her readers on a fascinating tour of the most famous attractions, off-the-beaten-path eateries, natural wonders such as Uluru and the Red Center, and the people she meets along the way.

With strong followings on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Blogspot, Labadens social media presence has allowed her to detail her travels and experiences to an enthusiastic audience. The popular reaction to her posts inspired her to compile her experiences into a book so that others can take this journey with her.

Labadens currently resides in London, England working as a consultant, and has recently begun a DBA program to receive her Doctorate in Business Administration with a specialization in Entrepreneurship. She also is working on her second book entitled, Relocation without Dislocation.

Book Reviewer

Relocation can be hard. You're leaving your friends and perhaps your family behind. Even if you're looking forward to moving, the logistics and the loneliness can be overwhelming. Especially if the culture you are moving to is different from that to which you are used to.

This is why you need a handy guide to show you what to do in preparation before moving day. Being prepared and aware of potential problems will help your move go much more smoothly.

Written by an author who has moved several times, this book provides many tips and resources for those considering moving, but are overwhelmed at the prospect.

It's a great idea to network before you move. Today's technology makes this possible. Take the fear and anxiety of-of relocating by following this excellent advice.

I believe a book should solve a problem and meet needs. Thanks Ndeye for doing it again.

Having lived halfway around the world; far away from family and friends, this book caught my attention. At first, living in a new location can seem very exciting and rather romantic, I've found however, that most lessons are learned on the go. So, a book that can save you time, stress and upheaval has got to be worth looking at.

The book focuses on the authors relocations to various cities, together with other helpful online tools regardless of whether you are moving for personal or business reasons. One thing she says is that you have to enjoy the city like you are a local. Another is networking with other travellers and locals before and when you arrive. This book also covers such topics as travel documentation, carrying cash, and a checklist of must have personal items.

If you are thinking about relocating, especially out of the country, this book is a resource you are going to want with you. For expats or soon to be expats this book is must reading. The idea of moving to a new country and culture is daunting enough by itself. It doesn't have to be that way, especially with all the resources the author lists in this book.

I've been looking at relocating in the near future and I'm so glad I found this book that has plenty of resources that are woven into the authors stories of her own experiences as a world traveler. If you are looking at moving, I highly recommend this book.

Ndeye's newest book is an absolute boon to people relocating especially to a different country or culture. Ndeye has lived in several countries in her short time on Planet Earth, thanks to her father who was a doctor and relocated to where he was needed and then pursuing her own studies and career. From Senegal to Ivory Coast to Sydney to London. A true product of the digital age, Ndeye uses all of the technology available to her and her interpersonal networking skills to turn relocation into a stress free repeatable, predictable process. She has distilled all her experience into her new book. From packing checklists, what to put in your carry on, what to send ahead, what to store... to how to find people with like minded interests, find a job, find places to shop for essentials Ndeye's book has it all.

Reading through this wonderful book by Ndeye is exactly what I needed to overcome all of the obstacles standing in my way after moving to a complete different area, leaving all my friends and loved ones behind.

Highly recommend to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation!

In this day and age moving seems more and more to be a part of life. It comes with fears, concerns, and anxiety, mostly because of the unknowns and uncertainties. Ndeye deals with the common issues in the well written and easy read. If you are relocating any time soon, or have, give this a read and then stick it in your back pocket for reference.

Whether you are relocating for work, school, or retirement-- this book is a valuable tool to help ease the anxiety of the transition. I especially like the packing to do's and lists to keep you organized throughout the process.

This is a useful booklet about how to acclimate to a new home city by a lady with plenty of experience! She is specific in how to network, why to network and what media works for her. This is very educational for an old school snail mail person like me. Thank you!

KCNewman

Having done weekly business travel nationally and internationally for the past 8yrs, this book comes in as a handy tool I wish I had years ago! Ndeye's networking skills and use of technology to ease the stressors that come along with moving to a new place! The tools shared in this book (networking with other travelers, checklist, cash on hand, proper travel documentation ) are tools I will utilize moving forward in my international travel and future international relocation!

but reading this book has inspired me and ignited a flame within. As I read through the book and the ease with which Ndeye addresses any relocation issues, it makes me think the task if undertaken would be easier. The tips Ndeye shares with regards to preparations prior to, during and upon arrival to a new home are priceless. I would recommend this book to anyone considering the idea of relocation.

Gayel Collinson

I enjoyed the conversational style of this book. It is full of good planning advice for anyone who is about to move away from their familiar environment. The advice given on how to connect to helpful resources for every situation is invaluable.

I must say when I first saw the title of the book, the first thing that came to my mind was, 'I’m not relocating yet'. But then I began to read and believe you me, I started uncovering so many gems and I kept at it. This came to mind, “when you discover a single gem in an area, there most possibly are several other gems around that location, so keep searching”. This was my experience with ‘Relocation Without Deformation’…amazing. Starting from the author’s own experience with making the decision as to what destination to pick from and setting objectives to setting up smart goals, actions steps, tracking those goals and networking. In addition, the inspiration to believe, follow guidelines and finally realising your goals was made plain–to follow your dreams. The author brings to light that you should plan for the future and celebrate all your achievements. The resources in this book cannot to be quantified (extremely valuable) and I for one became wealthier with solid information to apply henceforth. Splendid read, experience it!!

The tips Ndeye shares with regards to preparations prior to, during and upon arrival to a new home are priceless. I would recommend this book to anyone considering the idea of relocation.

Having traveled and relocated many time I found this an interesting read. There are anxieties when relocating and trying to assimilate in a new community. This book will help you develop a strategy that will work best for you, and help you to feel more integrated in your new community. I am a goal setter and especially liked the discussion on how to set goals to be more focused and motivated to make your transition a success. Networking and joining online groups are options I have not considered but was expressly discussed. The author shared how this has supported her success in her travels. Yonette Belinda, Author.
