Who Are We?
Hey guys, my name is Emanuel “Manny” Hernandez, and this is my incredible wife Yadira “Yadi” Figueroa.
And we’ve been a dream team entrepreneurial couple for over a decade. It’s been ten years of marriage and ten years of building our online empire from the ground up.
Growing up, I was just a poor boy from Puerto Rico, and Yadi was a girl growing up in the country of Honduras.
To say the least, our self-made success didn’t come easy…
Although we didn’t grow up with much, we both shared a similar personality trait that was far more valuable — the cold-hard drive to propel us forward into success.
What Got Us Here?
Hard work, and taking advantage of the internet — something most people in history never had the privilege of using. Online businesses have become revolutionary.
Living in this day and age, we’d be fools if we didn’t take advantage of the opportunities that the world-wide-web grants us.
We’ve always been hard-working go-getters. Before we even became business owners, we realized early in our life that we were the ones in control.
Regardless of the position that we were born into, we were determined to climb our way to success.
Our hustle and grind turned into life-changing achievements, and now we’re entrepreneur-business-owners living our lives — however the hell we want.
Nobody tells Yadi and me what to do. We’re in control of our lives, nobody else.
With the success that we’ve achieved, we’ve created a life where we get to follow our dreams and fulfill our true purpose.
The message we want to portray to our viewers is simple:
If we did it, then so can you.
Remember — It’s Not About the Money, It’s About the Freedom
Making money online is now easier than ever. We may not have mastered it on our first tries, but nonetheless, it paid off.
And it didn’t just pay off financially, the lessons we learned and mindset we gained will stay with us forever.
Hard work pays off. We’re living proof, and our voyage around the world is just one of the results.
We didn’t create this blog about our travels to brag.
We’re not better than anyone — if we’re able to do this, then you’re ready to as well!
We want you to know that you can take control and live how you want to live.
The Rags-to-Riches Power Couple
I used to be just a boy from Puerto Rico who would do anything I could to make a buck. I’d do anything from sell toys to tires.
And Yadi was just a girl from Honduras with humble beginnings before becoming an entrepreneur dedicated to the coffee plantation industry.
Despite the obstacles that we’ve overcome, we’ve been hungry for success ever since we were young. Our mindsets separated us from the rest.
Unfortunately, many people don’t get to have the privilege of experiencing freedom from their dead-end nine-to-five job. They don’t get to fulfill and pursue their true purpose.
That’s what our trip on a cruise around the globe is all about — pursuing our dreams.
We could have followed everyone else, but we knew deep down what was for the best.
It was us versus the world — we were once bound to the limits of ordinary life, yet we prevailed.
Before I met Yadi, I wasn’t the big-balling CEO that I am today. I was serving the United States as a soldier.
While I was stationed in Kentucky in 2008, Yadi and I fatefully met. We fell in love immediately; it was like destiny.
I’m proud of my time in the Army. However, working for the government wasn’t fulfilling my true purpose.
We Wanted to Live Life on Our Own Terms.
Soon after leaving the Army, Yadi and I tied the knot — I couldn’t ask for a better partner in my life.
After buying an ebook for one of my buddies in the Army, I was inspired to start dabbling with an online business.
Eventually, dabbling turned into founding our very own digital marketing agency, Click Cash Marketing. It became a success. And our lives were never the same from that point forward.
We didn’t wait for the perfect time and idea to start our online marketing agency. We got out there and started trying out ideas while getting better and learning along the way.
Here’s my tip to you if you’re still waiting for your time:
Trying something is better than nothing. If you are making new attempts at ideas, at least you are learning. Don’t get caught in the mindset that you need to wait for the perfect time. The perfect time is now.
The Embarky Itinerary
At the end of August, in 2019, we began our trip that many would only experience in their dreams…
Yadi and I will venture around the whole world — London to London on the Viking Ultimate World Cruise.
On this cruise, we’ll be traveling to 6 different continents, 59 countries, and 113 ports — taking us around the entire Earth.
Only a select amount of people ever in history have had an opportunity like this.
On our worldwide voyage, we’ll travel as far north to Reykjavik, Iceland, where the Vikings first settled in 870 AD and as far south to Ushuaia, Argentina, also known as the “end of the world”.
We’re setting sail to the west from the iconic royal city of London until our journey comes to an end in London — the place where it all started.
We could have flown around the world, going spot to spot, but no — that’d be too simple. We wanted the ultimate world traveler’s experience.
In under a year, it’s pretty much impossible to see the entire world. But by traveling from port to port, we’re going to see as much as we can.
In one voyage we’ll travel through the culturally rich countries of:
- Western Europe
- The Nordic Nations
- North America
- Latin/South America
- South Asia
- North Africa
The 245 days following August 31st are going to be life-changing.
It’s going to be a lot to take in, but we want to share as much as we can with you and the world.
This is us going after our dreams, and you should too.
Some of Our Top Destinations
Our cruise will take us to some of the world’s most incredible destinations.
We want you to embark with us through the Americas, across the Pacific, around Asia, into the Mediterranean, and around Europe to all of your and their dream-destinations.
Here are some of our most highly anticipated trips:
- Bali, Indonesia- Bali has become one of the most popular destinations for global travelers. The affordable cost of living, beautiful beaches and scenery are the biggest reasons I’m excited to have part of my adventure in Bali.
- Sardinia (Cagliari), Italy- Sardinia is known for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world because of its crystal clear water. The gorgeous Mediterranean landscape blended with the unique Italian culture is what attracts us the most about this stop.
- Bergen, Norway- As someone from Puerto Rico, the Nordic region is like a place no-other for us. I’m ecstatic to experience the Viking-style architecture, glaciers, and magnificent mountains.
As I tell you our travel stories, I want to give you personal insight into our unique experiences that you can’t get anywhere else. No BS. That’s what we’re all about.
While we’re traveling to the world’s hottest destinations, I’m going to take you along for the ride.
Whether it’s the good or ugly, you’ll hear about it all here on Embarky.
From our personal experiences, I’m going to give you all:
- Personal insight
- The lessons along the way
- The activities/tours that we partake in
While we’re giving you all of this information, we at least want you to take in one thing — inspiration.
Becoming financially free, seeing the mysteries of the world, and helping others do the same has always been a passion of ours. That’s why we’re doing this project.
It has been easier than ever to travel the world.
With so many free resources and information online — if you have the will, then the way is already laid out for you. You just need to go out and get it.
As we embark on our tour of the world, we’re going to learn together.
We came virtually from nothing — I was born into a place where it would have been easy to give up, but we persevered.
We’ve come from rags to riches and now we’re conquering our dream of seeing the world.
The bottom line is: We did this, and so can you.
What would you like to learn the most during our trip?
What do We Believe in?
As Entrepreneurs and World Explorers Fulfilling the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the United Nations is our final objective, everything we do is geared toward supporting these goals.
We believe that all of the solutions to our world’s challenges are here today. The technology is available to us now, we only need to apply it.
Think about it. Yadira and I built our online empire from the mountains of Honduras just with an Internet Connection.
We are not special, we are just disciplined and not afraid of hard work. What ever we didn’t know we googled it but in the process we found that some times getting access to the right information is not as easy as a google search.
Because of this we involved ourselves in the creation and funding of projects that build Online Educational Hubs to be given for free to the masses. Hubs where you can get High Quality Actionable and easy to understand information that anyone can use to improve in life.
In our opinion, access to information is one of the most critical aspects of creating financial prosperity and/or eliminating poverty in the world.
The premise is simple.
Gain the wisdom to create and grow your wealth.
You see, basic to intermediate knowledge of creating wealth is not common knowledge. In fact, billions of people are still left un-banked in the world. What’s more, a large portion of the banked individuals in the world are not fully financially literate.
Combine these two facts and you can easily see why poverty is so rampant throughout the world. However, where most see a problem, we see an opportunity! An opportunity to educate as many people as possible with enough financial wisdom to gain then grow their wealth.
