Nothing has changed...yet!
Time to Go
If you didn’t go to Cuba when I told you, now you may not get the chance to see my homeland.
Last April 17th the Trump administration announced to implement non-family travel to Cuba. This new restrictions will hurt all travel companies servicing travel to Cuba but it will mostly seriously hurt my Cuban people. I have been taking people to Cuba for 3 years and it has always been a people to people experience. Never dealt with the Cuban government except to get the visas to get into the country. My main reason to do Cuba tours is to help my people by staying at their homes, eating at private restaurants and getting around in private cars. Because I know that I was putting the money right on their hands.
What makes them think that restricting travel to Cuba will hurt the government? They will never be affected by any rules imposed by the USA ?? government, only the people are the ones who will always suffer. You can read the announcement here: https://apple.news/AwVlDjko7QfK7EKFFfLoKkw
The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control intends to implement changes to non-family travel to Cuba “in the coming months,” a Treasury Department spokesperson said last April 19th.

In an email, the spokesperson wrote:
“OFAC will implement Treasury-specific changes to non-family travel and other regulations via amendments to its Cuban Assets Control Regulations. OFAC expects to issue new regulatory amendments in the coming months, and will propose revisions to existing restrictions at that time.”
I’d suggest you book your trip to Cuba NOW! Usually, it takes 90 days for the new regulations to take effect unless it’s set for immediate effect.

Spread the Positive Podcast
Spread The Positive's approach is simple. They want to reward our community for participating and living their brand so to speak. Through social media campaigns and sponsorship opportunities they are going to give away prizes for people who engage and submit worthy content showcasing anything they deem as "positive".
On that note, they have partnered with my friend Shannon Rizzo owner of Global Girl Life to do a monthly podcast and this past month, I was invited to be part of this fantastic and energetic podcast which is ran by Trent Denson. From a young age, he has never understood how mainstream media/cable news has always focused and glorified all of the horrible, tragic, scandalous stories and completely leave out all of the stuff that is inspiring, uplifting and making a positive impact on the world. Over the years the concept of Spread The Positive has evolved and is gaining some traction in Murfreesboro, TN (outside of Nashville, TN) and looking to make a dent in the overwhelming amount of negativity that is pushed at an alarming rate from countless media outlets.
Shannon with Global Girl Life has some amazing insights as well. We are really grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Shannon and the culture she is building with her mission. If you are looking for consulting and mentorship for a new business be sure to check out globalgirl.life and get hooked up with Shannon. She is really good at what she does! Thanks to both of you Shannon and Trent for having me on the podcast and to be one more person who is always thinking on the positive side of thins and thank you for all you do to Spread The Positive.
