Since leaving home at 18 years old, I haven’t had three square meals per day in about 24 years. Our new housekeeper Gloria, started today, and it looks like I’m gonna get three squares from now on. Something I never thought would happen again in my lifetime, lol.
It goes to show, that no matter how ridiculous your goals are, they can happen. I asked for three squares per day, and now it’s happening. LOL. GOD is good.
Now, considering we just moved in, we didn’t have much in the fridge, but Gloria did the best with what few items we had (see pic below).
But since Gloria is here, things are about to get much better. Today, she is writing out a grocery list, and will go buy all the food needed to cook us authentic Colombian meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
YEP … In addition to the cooking, Gloria will also clean the house, do the laundry, iron clothes and a few other things as well.
Would you believe me if I said you can have all of this for $20 – $25 per day? Well, you can … It won’t include the 3 cooked meals per day, but you can get your entire house cleaned for a daily rate of about $20 bucks — this includes washing dishes, mopping floors, cleaning the bedrooms and bathrooms, making beds, ironing clothes, cleaning windows, dusting, doing your laundry and more … all for just about $20 – $25 per day. She’s here from 8:00 a.m. t0 5:00 p.m.
Listen to the media long enough, you’ll think blacks in America are doing bad. Well, all of the negative hype simply ain’t true. Just look at the families and children in the photograph below! We’re all expats travelling the world with our families … we’re black and we’re doing very well.
This photo was taken during a national holiday in Medellin, Colombia, at the Botanical Garden of Medellin. This was a meet-up of the families who were all connected together by Mitch and Donna Gallegos-Griffith.
Mitch and Donna Gallegos-Griffith have been very instrumental in helping us get over our fears about traveling abroad.
I ain’t gonna lie … I was scared, terrified and nervous about leaving. Just the idea of it all scared me. But after sitting on my computer and watching all of Mitch and Donna’s videos on Facebook and YouTube channel, I finally decided to take the plunge.
Folks thought we were crazy when we told them we were traveling abroad. And after meeting all of these great folks, their families and kids, I’m 100% convinced I made the right decision.
The wealthiest people amongst us will say this strategy will keep you working for the rest of your life until you drop dead, OR, until you become a burden on your children, whichever comes first!

It’s really quite simple. Bad habits produce bad results. Good habits produce good results.
If you don’t pay yourself first after getting your paycheck, then you’ll likely be broke before your next paycheck arrives (thus the term, living paycheck-to-paycheck).
If you do pay yourself first after getting your paycheck, you likely won’t be broke before your next check arrives…
It’s simple little habits like these that’ll determine the quality of life you’ll live …
Don’t pay your bills on-time and your credit rating will drop … which means you’ll have to pay more money to get a car, or even an extra deposit or two in order to move into a house or an apartment. These poor habits will affect everything in your life moving forward … They even check credit to consider you for a job nowadays.
Each day we’re alive is a gift from God. And how you manage the next 24-hours of your life will determine the quality of life you’ll have.
For most of us, everyday is a full day of responsibilities. Life happens. Kids need this. Our spouse needs that. The car needs fixing. Debt is rising and before you know it, life is controlling you. When in reality, we’re suppose to be in control.
God has given us dominion over our days. Which means we literally rule our day. We have power over each hour in the 24-hour period given to us.
Some of us may choose to punch a clock for 8 hours. Others may choose to sit on their butts and do absolutely nothing but sleep and play video games all day.
Regardless to what we do — it’s ours and ours alone.
In this video, I’ll reveal how you can take control over your days and create the lifestyle you want. You’ll learn how to…
