Blaxit Global The Sessions: Going to Ghana with Nii Armah & Kristin Tellis Quaye

Nii & Kristin’s Blaxit Blueprint:

1. Manage Your Mindset – Kristin and Nii encourage those who are considering relocating to the Motherland to begin their journey by doing some internal work on their mindset and managing expectations so as not to carry maladaptive western beliefs to Africa.

2. Be Relational – Unlike America, Ghana (and the Continent) is all about relationships. Utilizing a trusted partner, like Certified Africa, to establish connections will make your journey go much smoother.

3. Economic Opportunity – Ghana offers an incredible amount of opportunity for members of the diaspora. From entrepreneurship to land ownership, the possibilities are endless. The goal should always be to enrich Ghana (Africa), not to take from it.
