As the pandemic has propelled millions of Americans to quit their jobs, many of them are fleeing the states to pursue their business dreams in other countries. If you are one of those entrepreneurs itching to break your US shackles but haven’t decided on a destination, Michelle Wedderburn-Waters shares how San Miguel de Allende stole her heart, why the city is ripe for Black entrepreneurs, and why you should consider making the move.
Those who aren’t House Hunter International fanatics may have missed the “Meet Me in San Miguel de Allende” episode that chronicles her journey to find a home in the magical city with her husband, Darryl, and son, Micha, a short four years ago.
Today, Wedderburn is the founder and CEO of Afro Expats, a travel and Mexico relocation company. This year she launched two more business ventures: The Journey Retreat, which offers holistic healing retreats for women; and Casa ELM Boutique Guesthouse, a luxury home created for travelers to rest and bond with other aspiring ex-pats. But let’s start from the beginning.
