Moving to Spain a little later in life – a journey of personal growth & reinvention with Cepee Tabibian

Are you thinking of starting a new life in Spain but feel like you’ve left it too late? Do you want to break free of your routine and start a journey of reinvention, self-discovery and personal growth? Is it too late to change your life when you’re already in your 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond?

This week I talk to Cepee Tabibian about these issues and doubts that many of us have when considering making a big change in our lives. We talk about starting a fresh and relocating to a new country a little bit later in life and examine the challenges and rewards that come with it. Cepee provides useful advice, insights and motivation for anyone and particularly women who are thinking about a new life in Spain.

Cepee Tabibian is a social media strategist and community manager. In 2015, at the age of 35 she “hit refresh” and left a comfortable life in Austin,Texas for the unknown in Madrid, Spain.

That one decision led her on a path of rapid personal and professional growth. Realizing there was a gap in the market for women “of a certain age” who wanted to radically change their life, she founded She Hit Refresh in 2017 to help other women like herself.

Cepee also runs Madrid Blogger Network, Madrid’s largest community for bloggers and content creators and co-hosts CMXConnect Madrid, a community that brings together community leaders in person to connect and learn from one another.
