Why we are moving to Puerto Rico

I just shipped some of my stuff to Puerto Rico today.

The feeling was bittersweet because I knew that once those boxes with my name on it were sealed, that meant this move was really real.  YIKES!  

Move day is June 14th.  I’m feeling a lot of things: excitement, anxiety, trepidation.   I can’t help but wonder, “What’s it gonna be like for a little black girl from West Englewood to live in Puerto Rico full-time?  OMG!”

One thing’s for sure, once we settle in, we’ll be just fine and I am looking forward to taking in all the beauty, inspiration and adventure our new home has to offer.

So many of you have been asking questions about what prompted the move.  Here are some answers for you: 

Biggie, TJ and me at Puerto Rico's beautifull "el Yunque" rainforest

Q: Why Puerto Rico?

A: Biggie (my husband) is half Puerto Rican so he’s been back and forth to the island most of his life.  He has always loved it!  In 1999, he took me there for the first time and I fell in love with it too.  Shortly thereafter, we got a cute little condo, some years later, a house and as TJ (my son) got older, we started spending lots of time there.  Now, TJ is in love with the island and looking forward to living there!

Q: Why NOW?

A: Addicted to the tranquility and stress-free lifestyle the Island offers (not to mention the business opportunities throughout the Carribean and Latin America), Biggie came up with the idea to move.  Initially our intent was to wait til TJ graduated high school but later, we decided that life is too short, so we set a shorter time frame.  That was 18 months ago.  My how time flies!  The decision was hard for me…really hard…but Biggie has always supported my dreams.  Now, it was my turn to support his!

Q: What will you do there?

A: I will continue to run Momentum Media Group, my media consulting and coaching business.  It’s hard to believe but the business is almost 10 years old now!  

Over the past 4 years, MMG has become “location-independent” so all I need is a laptop, cell phone and internet access and I can coach and train from anywhere in the world.  I will also continue speaking and working with extraodinary clients around the world  and expanding into the Carribean market.  One thing I’m really looking forward to is getting back into radio…who knows, maybe a station on St. Thomas or St. John might want to hire a sista :) !

Q: How often will you travel back to the states?

A: Chicago is still a hub for me so I’ll be back often.  My family, most of my clients and my team are in the Chi and I already have speaking gigs and trainings set up for the fall so look for me in September (drinks anyone?)!  I’ll also be visiting Florida and New York frequently as opportunities are opening there as well!  Nevertheless, Puerto Rico is home base, so mostly I’ll be there.  

What’s exciting though is the fact that my VIP and Platinum clients will have the option to travel to paradise to work with me for VIP Days and MVP Academy success retreats!  Stay tuned for details.

In the meantime, if you’re planning your upcoming event and would like to have me as a keynote speaker or presenter, go here so my team can plan accordingly.

So that’s a peek at the method behind our move “madness.”  By the way, Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory so it’s important to note two things: 1.) Barack Obama is still my President and 2.) no passport is needed when you come visit.  How cool is that! :)

Thanks for all your well wishes and words of encouragement!  I am looking forward to continuing to serve you with an even deeper commitment inspired by beauty, tranquility and pure love!  I’ll send more pics soon!
