How can you afford to move abroad? Where should you “Blaxit” to? And is becoming an expat the right decision for you? I get to talk to some AMAZING women on my YouTube channel who share exactly what their life is like in a new country and how they were able to make that choice for themselves.
Queen Michelle from Detroit Found a Community in Lake Chapala Mexico
Queen was a school teacher who now lives in Mexico on less than $1200 dollars per month. She’s part of a community of African American women who have moved to Lake Chapala, Mexico to improve their health and wellness while living on a lot less money than they needed in the United States.
This video set my YouTube channel ON FIRE! You can feel Queen’s love for her new home and gratitude for the new circle that surrounds her now in Mexico.
If you don’t want to pick up and go after you watch a few minutes of this interview, I don’t know what to tell you.

Are you considering moving abroad?
I know that these women’s stories have made you think that maybe this is possible for you too.
Any time you want to make a big change, you need 3 THINGS to get it done:
- You need commitment to it
- You need information on how to get it done
- You need a community of people on a similar path to walk along side you
You’ve got #1 covered. I know where you can get #2 and #3.
