Welcome

Sticky

Welcome to my blog! The story of one Black woman’s adventures in Mexico…or wherever I am at the time. I decided to start this blog to be an inspiration to others who want to live abroad. This is where I write about my day to day activities on living abroad in Mexico and any tips and tricks I’ve found to help make your transition to living abroad easier. I LOVE to break the stereotype of β€œBlack folks don’t do this or that”… I also want to paint Mexico in a great light. It’s such a beautiful and great place that I fell deeply in love with the country. Mexico City changed my life.

Who am I and what’s my story? You can read more about me here.

Reverse Culture Shock and My First Pitch

Standard

Whoo! What a week I’ve had! Last week was the first full week of the launch of my business BeAForeigner.com and I got hits from around the world! I pitched to my first investors in POLAND on Thursday! I wasn’t even nervous because I know my stuff and I enjoy talking about my life and my business. I didn’t get any negative feedback but got tons of great feedback and they even gave me an important connection for my business!

These were my stats for 03/05/2019:

    We all have knowledge about how the world works. But when someone like me comes along and challenges that knowledge, we do not know how to handle it. We are not hardwired that way. It is difficult to question everything you have ever thought to be true. It’s not your fault. You can believe me or not, but whichever you choose, you are the one who has to deal with the consequences. So make your decision wisely!

Wing It Girl

Standard

My second Auditor job. I had been interviewing for a month or so with the feds plus I did mystery shopping on the side so winged shit all day everyday. I used to call it my “acting”. 🀣 So eh I didn’t practice before my interviews.

Anyhoo…this job sent the interview questions beforehand. Did I look at em? Hell no! I actually forgot they sent them. I was working full time and doing my masters part time AND doing my “acting”. I didn’t have time!

So the interview comes and they ask me…did you take time to look at the interview questions? Me…I’m honest…nope sure didn’t!!! They’re like ooooook well let’s just start then. 😲

I must have done something right…they called me a few days later and offered me the job. I took it.

My boss later tells me they called me ‘wing it girl’ and was so impressed with my ass. #strokethatego 😜

Anyhoo again…I never plan my presentations. I just go in there and “wing em”. Each time it’s a challenge.

I have my first pitch today for BeAForeigner.com all the way in Poland and I’m sooooo excited. And this Black Woman right here πŸ™‹πŸΎ is not about to prepare SHIT. #wishmeluck I’m going to look real gorgeous though. πŸ€ͺ


Culture Shock

Standard

Culture shock is real. There are 4 stages that you must deal with before being completely comfortable in your new country.
