Halisi Vinson & Ricardo Crawley are recent immigrants to Portugal and the co-founders of Our Black Utopia.  They are managing Halisi’s parents’ care from abroad which further confirms their belief that the key to freedom, for Americans from the African Diaspora, is directly tied to financial freedom; everything else is secondary.

They are having the time of their lives exploring Portugal and helping others get a handle on their finances so that they can retire on time or maybe even early.

  • Hi! I’m interested in the Golden Visa program via Portugal. I hear its expiring in June! Do you happen to know any reputable contacts I can contact to learn the ins and outs of this program? Thank you! I’m SO glad I found your podcast. Listening only increased my desire to create alternate living opportunities for myself and my family. Thanks!

    • Hi Lynetta,

      Thank you for reaching out and for listening to the Blaxit Global podcast. Great news about your interest in Portugal. As you know, I am moving there and we have loads of resources to help folks like you make it happen. In terms of the Golden Visa Program, attorney Sandra Gomes Pinto who is a Portuguese attorney based in Lisbon is who I would recommend you reach out to. Be sure to mention Blaxit Global when you contact her. Here is her website.

      We also have a Portugal accountability group in our Blaxit Global Passport community. Please consider joining us so we can support you in your journey.
