Create Content Like a Boss: Costa Rica Edition
No matter what industry you are in, creating a life, business, and community you love will inspire you to create content. During my Costa Rica travels, I created content on faith, wellness, marketing, business and travel for social media, online courses, retreats, and brand consulting.
Before I left for my travel to Costa Rica, I created a vision, intention, and outline. Keep in mind, I stay flexible to allow myself to create, transform, and inspire freely.
Some highlights from my original plan included ideas for social media, online courses, retreats, and repurposing content for influencer marketing collaborations, influencer management and brand consulting.

For Costa Rica, I knew I wanted to share faith, wellness, marketing, business and travel. I knew I wanted to share One Day, Top 10, and Weekly Guides on the blog and show. I decided in 2021, it was time to take my YouTube channel to another level too!
While I outlined ideas, titles, and launches, things constantly changed with new insights.

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
IG REEL Examples
With Costa Rica Travel, I created Content Like a BOSS:
1) Sharing stories, reels, videos and lives on Instagram
2) Filming face to face and behind the scenes
3) Sharing multiple Instagram Reels weekly
4) Creating videos for YouTube, Summit and Mastermind
5) Including videos in the Blog & Podcast
6) Planning my Instagram Feed & being spontaneous
7) Photos & Videos for Future Posts on Courses, Retreats, and Launches
You can see how this sets you up to create content like a boss.
Consider new ways to create content like a boss all the time. Don't be afraid to reshare the same posts on platforms again. For example, I went to Cuba a few years ago for our hands on global transformational retreats.
When my content creation evolved with lifestyle transformation and entrepreneurship, I decided I would start creating the One Day Guides. During my Costa Rica Travels, I started the Top 10 Things to Do and Weekly Series on Creating What I Love.
The final tip in platforms is share your content over and over. Based on human psychology and the amount of information we deal with daily, it takes the average person 5+ times to take action. So, don't take it personal when you aren't seen and heard and viral overnight. Anyone that you see now with thousands of views or likes put in years of work.
Thinking about how you want to create content like a boss next? Is it with your vision and clarity? Or are you already on the outline for your blogs, shows, and social media?
Now, you are creating content like a boss.
