Costa Women Meet … Dale Potts

This week we chat to a fairly new member who has recently moved to Javea, in Spain’s Alicante region.


Hello Dale!  Why Spain? 

My in-laws have been in Javea for over 20 years and we have been holidaying here every year for that time. It was always the plan to move here when my husband retired.


Why do you love Javea? 

It’s perfect for the outdoor lifestyle, beautiful scenery and ideal for the airport.


What was the biggest challenge for your move and how did you overcome it?

Not yet being fluent in Spanish! You don’t really need it in Javea but we really want to speak the beautiful language well.


How do you spend your days?

I’m a business and career coach helping people create the success they are looking for in their lives. I also write a weekly blog and at the moment support NHS England with pro-bono coaching for staff through the pandemic.


Something you have achieved or are grateful for during these Covid days

Moving safely from the Middle East to Spain, buying our house in Javea and transitioning from my 20 year corporate career to running my own business.


If you arranged a dinner party with your favourite people who would you invite? 

Esther Hicks, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Robin Sharma, Oprah Winfrey, Martha Beck, Mike Dooley.


What is your secret weapon or accomplishment?

Helping clients get their AHA moments!


One thing you had to bring with you to Spain and could never give away and why?

My husband! He is amazing!


Favourite childhood book?

The Famous Five books…. so many adventures!


The one thing you are most looking forward to when restrictions are relaxed?

Having family and friends visit.


Something you would tell your younger self?

Don’t worry what other people think about you. That’s their business.
