1. Create a Vision for Content

The first thing I do is create a vision when I create content like a boss. I imagine what type of place I want to stay in, what I want the experience to feel like, how the content will look like, and what I will use it for. I pray. I visualize. I embrace.


Before I even begin to create, I imagine feeling like a boss done with the content.


When you inspire yourself, there is no way you won't Create Content Like a Boss

I want you to know this is a result of years of transformation inside and out.


I believe transformation is required to create a life and business you love.

Creating, transforming and inspiring is limitless.


So are you.


Here is a helpful list to help you create a vision

Visualize how you feel creating, shooting, filming

Determine where you want to shoot or film

Identify themes and areas you focus on


Before I went to Costa Rica, I looked for a place or Airbnb in Costa Rica: Dragonfly Hideaway. I imagined how I would feel staying there, and all the things I would create. I set an intention to evaluate the place for a global transformational retreat.


Our Costa Rica Retreat in August 2021 is in process.


Our environments matter in more ways than one.

2 Get Clear on How to Create Content Like a Boss

Casting a vision helps create clarity for our content. My purpose is to help you create a life, business and community you love.


For Costa Rica, I wanted you to see, feel and believe creating what you love is possible for you too.

I am clear about speaking to side-hustlers, entrepreneurs, and travelers who want to create a life and business they love.


I imagine brands I want to partner with on wellness, media, lifestyle and travel. When I speak, I don't speak to everyone. Not everyone is open to or focused on creating what they love. Additionally, I may not be the best guide or platform for them.


Consider why you are creating content and what platforms you are creating for. I knew I was creating content for Blogs, Shows, Instagram, Communities, and Courses.


These are the things I think about when taking pictures, creating Instagram Reels, and aligning to launches for courses, retreats, and brand consulting. This is what I think of when I am inviting you to create in our community online and live.


Years ago, I experienced many fears and challenges with money. I have grown a lot.

At the same time, I am and always will be a work in progress.


Here is a helpful list to help you get clear

Who you have in mind that you are creating for?

How do you want people to feel when they connect with you?

What platforms are you creating on and for?

Why are you creating content?


Before arriving in Costa Rica and all during travels, I shared and created value for social, courses and retreats. I imagined how this content helps you create a life, business and community you love.

3. Outline for Content Like a Boss

Outlines for your content help you feel like a boss before you start creating content. No matter where I am in the world, I constantly create.


For example, this post is a result of a prior outline. This week alone, I submitted pitches to brands, followed up on campaigns on influencer marketing platforms, and completed launch outlines for online courses, retreats, and brand consulting. This post is part of a launch strategy!


When you are creating your outline, consider platforms, purpose, and timing.


Examples for Costa Rica Included:

1 Instagram Reels, IGTV, Stories, Posts

2 Blog & Show & Tying to Social Channels

3 All of the Above & Course/Retreat/Brand Launches
