Hi! I’m Dexter D. Black. I, like you am uniquely made by The Creator.
I’m 53 years old and happily married to my beautiful wife Mae who works with me in my businesses.
My motto is: “Life is an Adventure.”
What made me become an Entrepreneur? You might say it’s been in my blood since I was a kid. I first got it from my Dad. He started out as most of us do, working for someone else. He was a cotton picker and then eventually got into construction being an independent contractor traveling all over the USA to build cement bases for power line towers. Later he got into installing commercial insulation. He then ventured into owning his own car tire shop, and then into a partnership of owning a wheel manufacturing plant in Norco, California called Tippi Engineering. As a boy, I remember his tire shop and later Tippi. For fun, I’d drive around the forklifts like it was a race car. It was amazing I never tipped the thing over! I learned from my dad that hard and smart work go together.
My first jaunt at being an Entrepreneur was when I was a young teen. Living in Southern California at the time, I’d go around offering various services for a fee. I’d knock on doors and wash cars, rake leaves, sell Christmas wrapping paper (that one didn’t go too well) and later ran two paper routes. Those were the days where the Newspaper companies actually allowed children to deliver papers on the bicycles. I still remember that I had a customer base anywhere from 98 to 120. All these activities taught me how to work hard, be organized, collect and count money, and how to sell.
From there I started my own Lawn Care service that developed into property clean up’s for realtors and brokers. I even dabbled for a while into having a house cleaning service. After I sold my business, I went back to the workforce being an employee again.
Of course today I am an independent distributor for Young Living Essential Oils which got me into learning to be healthy and learning to make money once again outside of a job. Now I have several income streams that you’ll learn about on the Rich You page.
More about me (If you’re not tired of reading about me yet).
I love collecting quotes. I believe that knowledge, wisdom, and inspiration can be learned from past experiences that people have had. One of my favorite quotes is “All our dreams can come true…if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
I enjoy being online socializing on Facebook, helping others in finding their own Riches and Health in their life. I love camping, reading, movies, eating out at different restaurants, eating home cooked meals, essential oils, and last but not least, traveling in the USA and throughout the world.
Some places I’ve traveled so far outside of the United States are The Philippines, Hong Kong, and Canada.
I am available for speaking engagements at churches only at this time and one on one appointments.

My Story About Cancer
When I was a kid the first encounger I had with cancer was my odest Uncle Everett on my dad’s side dying of lung cancer. I remember when my dad flew up to Northern California to see him and came back telling the story of how Uncle Everett had worked on the oil rigs in Alaska most of his life, saving for retirement all those years and finally buying a large ranch in Northern California for him and his family. Only a few years later he was diagnosed with Lung Cancer. Unfortunately my uncle had smoked all his life. It was during the time back then that cigarettes were really not known to cause cancer until the FDA much later in years made tobacco companies put warning labels on their products. By then, my uncle was hooked and he paid with his life.
What is amazing to me is cigar manufactures are just being ordered to put different warning signs on their products but wasn’t required to do it until August 2018! They now have warning signs that say: WARNING: Cigar smoking can cause cancers of the mouth and throat, even if you do not inhale. WARNING: Cigar smoking can cause lung cancer and heart disease. WARNING: Cigars are not a safe alternative to cigaretts. WARNING: Tobacco smoke increases the risk of lung cancer and heart disease, even in nonsmokers. Warning: Cigar use while pregnant can harm you and your baby. Or SURGEON GENERAL WARNING: Tobacco Use Increases the Risk of Infertility, Stillbirth, and Low Birth Weight.* WARNING: This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical.
Now if tobacco products was our only worry for cancer producing effecxts, it would be easier.
My mom as I was growing up, and before there was waterproof lipstick (and I’m not sure that’s even good for you), and so she used Talc Powder on her lips after putting lip stick on to keep it dry and smear free. Many years later after she died of ovarian cancer, guess what was discovered? Yep, Tacl Powder is a carcinogen!
As I grew older and reached my 40’s my eys were starting to be opened and I started understanding that not all products that are allowed on the free market are good for you. (Boy is that an understatement)!
I ran across a blog site from a lady named Mirdza Hayden and she wrote about essential oils and essential oil infused products making a HUGE difference in her life and her familiy’s life. Back then I was Mr. Skeptical and figured she was just out to make a quick buck. But I kept reading her posta and doing my own research and started to get curious if these oils were all that or not? So, (and I’m embarrassed to say) after readingher blog posts for about three years, I finally decided to take a trial run and see for myself how well these Young Living essential oils worked. I’ve been using Young Living Products for over 10 years now as has my family. Needless to say “I’m sold and no longer a doubting Thomas. These oils and oil infused products are now a part of my everyday living. I use them on my hair, on my skin, to clean clean the house and so much more and I have peace of mind that these products are all natural with no carcinognic ingreidents. After using them and seeing the physcial, mental, and even emotional benefits of these oils and oil infused products, I couldn’t help but share my story and the benefits with others. They changed my life for the better, and helped me create a safe home for my family. I am blessed in so many ways and feel that my faith in God is the main reason and these oils that God created from the start in the form of plants are another reason why I am blessed. May you too, be richly blessed,
