"I sold my house, which was at a good location, in 2017. Through connections, someone invited me, and I went to the USA. Since I came here, God has done so much for me. I have built more than double what I sold now."

She encouraged others who have properties to sell and use the money to travel to seek greener pastures.

"If you have a property in Ghana, sell it and travel to America or any European country with the proceeds. Sell your mother's property and use the proceeds to travel. I'm encouraging you. You will make it. God will help you, and things will go well."
