This Episode Summary

In this episode Thembi shares challenges, she faced such as integration and communication, and how she faced them. She shares her feelings of isolation when cultural differences made even jokes difficult to understand. In the beginning, she worked two jobs, and still found it hard to make ends meet because depression led her to spend more, and send more money back home because “you can never send enough money to Africa.”

She explains that sometimes immigrants work so hard, keeping two and three jobs, they don’t make time to enjoy their lives. She has learned that living a comfortable life instead of an extravagant life, allows her to enjoy her life. 

One of the thought patterns she has had to unlearn from her upbringing is the unwillingness to give to others. Certainly people always help their family, but she has seen what can be done when resources are pooled to fund a resource or charity. She also asserts that practical application, built through volunteer work, only adds to academic education. 

Education is not only about degrees and certificates. You must have a big why for what you are doing.

What will she change if she’s the president of Zimbabwe? Foreign dependency Mindset of the people. You are responsible for their own destiny, not the government or anyone else.

She has returned to Zimbabwe with the purpose of empowering women by teaching them real-life skills in technology. She also brings women from North America to share their knowledge. She believes it is important to surround yourself with people of your culture when you first move to your new country, but it is necessary to broaden your horizons to become part of the bigger picture, because  “your net worth is your network”

“ Your net worth is your network” – @thembi.bheka

Thembi’s success formula:

  • Live a simple life and avoid going into too much debt.
  • Get rid of the scarcity mindset because it will strangle you. There are resources, money, and opportunities sufficient for everyone
  • Start creating your own community. Look for meetup local meetup groups, attend educational events and associate with people that share the same interest, because “your net worth is your network” 
  • Develop a Volunteer and giving mindset. Give your time and resources to things you believe in. You do not have to be a millionaire to do that and giving to your family only does not count as giving mindset.

e15: “Thembi Bheka is a self-made millionaire who Landed in Montreal, Canada in 2001 with only $5 in her pocket, money she got from a stranger during her flight to Montreal.”

Part 1 – This is the fascinating story of how a Zimbabwen girl found herself in Canada in 2001 with only $5 in her pocket. Thembi Bheka shares her nadvigating journey with Bassey Simon. 

In this episode, I bring you the first part of Thembi Bheka inspiring story.
 
 

This Episode Summary

Thembi Bheka left Zimbabwe with five dollars in her pocket, money she got from a stranger during her flight to Montreal, Canada. When she was five months pregnant, she learned she was one of three wives and decided that wasn’t the life for her. She moved to Canada as a political refugee where she started a new life without her 10-month-old daughter. Even in a thin coat and freezing weather, she felt a hope in Canada she had never experienced in Zimbabwe. She also learned about lettuce when she ate salad for the first time.  

She shares that life in Zimbabwe was hard, but she was fortunate enough to be able to (mostly) make ends meet. However, leaving her marriage put her on a different path. She credits her rebellious spirit for enabling her to walk away from a destructive situation, regardless of what anyone else had to say. 

There were other factors motivating her to leave Zimbabwe, though. Youth in her neighborhood, who supported oppositional political parties, started disappearing from her neighborhood, political unrest and a desire to go to Paris (she realizes she was a little bit naive) helped her make the decision to leave. She shares the need to invest in an education, which means more than going to school. Life experiences can be our best education.

The most comical moment of her journey was when, on her arrival in Canada, naivety led her to believe that she could work for 100 hours to buy 10 cars and ship them back to help her mother in Zimbabwe, because she thought the advertised price of $199 at the auto dealerships was the final price of the car.

Thembi encourages other immigrants to embrace a purpose that keeps us focused, such as empowering our family or helping the poor back home. “We should have a bigger purpose in us than just making money. A bigger purpose will keep driving you.”

Part 2 – Liliana Rogers shares her nadvigating journey with host Bassey Simon. 

She jumped from an airplane in June 2017 to conquer her fear of heights that paralyzed her for over 25 years. Born in Columbia to a middle-class family. Was always eager to travel the world since she was a little girl. Her opportunity came when she was offered an HB1 visa to work as a Software Engineer with a Texas company. Although that line of work was great, she always knew she could be more..

In this episode, I bring you the concluding part of Liliana Rogers inspiring story.
 
 

This Episode Summary

Ms. Rogers came to the United States from Columbia when she was in her early twenties. She calls herself a life coach with a “Latin twist.” She says she always wanted to travel, and with a degree in software in engineering, she was able to make that dream come true. She moved to Texas to work for a company that sent her all over the world until she settled in California.
She shares the freedom her engineering degree provided because she didn’t have to re-learn anything. After twenty years of software engineering, she has changed career paths and become a life coach.

One of the struggles she shares of adapting to life in her new homeland, came from doing business over the phone, especially in Texas where the accent could be hard to understand. She advises others to immerse themselves in the language of the country they choose to live in. Watch T.V. or read books in the language you are trying to learn. However, you don’t need to sacrifice your culture and accents are sexy.

She has kept the love of food and family, common in Columbian culture, alive in her own family, and her children are bi-lingual. They also visit Columbia regularly. Her only remorse is not being closer to her own family. She explains that it’s important to make yourself clear in what you do and don’t want in your life and gives the example of how she wanted her children raised. She shares how her wishes for her children’s upbringing were clearly stated, even in her divorce papers.

After twenty years of software engineering, she has changed career paths and become a life coach.
One of the struggles she shares of adapting to life in her new homeland, came from doing business over the phone, especially in Texas where the accent could be hard to understand. She advises others to immerse themselves in the language of the country they choose to live in. Watch T.V. or read books in the language you are trying to learn. However, you don’t need to sacrifice your culture and accents are sexy.
She has kept the love of food and family, common in Columbian culture, alive in her own family, and her children are bi-lingual. They also visit Columbia regularly. Her only remorse is not being closer to her own family. She explains that it’s important to make yourself clear in what you do and don’t want in your life and gives the example of how she wanted her children raised. She shares how her wishes for her children’s upbringing were clearly stated, even in her divorce papers.

e12: Keep Moving, Never Look Back! Use the past to go forward not like a crush to fall behind.”

Part 2 – Dr. William Undie shares his nadvigating journey with host Bassey Simon. 

This professor of Radio Oncology never believed he was too good for any job and spent time as a pizza delivery man, a construction worker, and even a dishwasher at a restaurant. Certainly, his own children find it hard to believe, but Dr. Undie has never considered any job to be beneath him. That is the nature of the journey.

In this episode, I bring you the first part of Dr. William Undie inspiring story.
 
 

This Episode Summary

Dr. Undie credits his parents with instilling in him the importance of education, hard work and integrity. These are values he has sought to teach his children as well. He also discusses the difference in cultural norms. He shares some of the cultural behaviors he himself had to unlearn, such as avoiding eye contact. While this is accepted as  a sign of respect in Nigeria, it is interpreted as being devious in the United States. This is just one example of things many Nadvigators need to consider when striving to fully integrate into their new environment. He concludes that cultural variations aren’t bad. It is important to adapt to the social norms of your adopted country, though you still reserve the right to reject any attitudes that may be in conflict with your personal beliefs

He continues to say that he doesn’t regret coming back to the U.S.  because, “In life, you have to go through some struggles to get better.” His actions more than back up his words. He also explains the importance of creating a home culture where children can feel connected to parents as they learn to adapt and create a bridge between the parents and American culture.
