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.
