Building for Retirement in Belize – How a Primary School Dropout Conned a Multiple-Degree College Client!
Belize is a thriving Caribbean mecca in Central America with a booming construction business and a plethora of contractors. But without governmental agencies regulating and monitoring these so-called contractors, many prey on unsuspecting, trusting, financially able clients from the U.S., like Ms. Gloria Swift.
What follows is the story of “one of the largest financial blunders and idiotic decisions of my life,” remarked Ms. Swift. When she was told, “You aren’t the first one that this happened to and you won’t be the last,” she wrote Building for Retirement in Belize as a cautionary tale for others—”Because I will be the last.”
About the Author:
Ms. Gloria Swift served in the U.S. Army and was the Distinguished Graduate in the Instructor’s Training Course and the first black female in the Color Guard on Post. She was also the first female officer on a police department where she was not accepted by the majority of men, including the Chief. In Banking, although she had a reputation for cleaning up branches in order for them to pass internal audits, promotions eluded her for years. Ms. Swift pursued multiple degrees and credentials in the field of Education and went back to her first love, Teaching. Her memoir, The True Story of an Illegal Immigrant, details the obstacles she faced…and overcame as a black woman and an immigrant in the U.S.
