Create Content Like a Boss: Guatemala Edition
No matter what industry you are in, creating a life, business, and community you love will inspire you to create content. During my Guatemala travels, I created content on faith, wellness, marketing, business and travel for social media, online courses, retreats, and brand consulting.
I started off 2021 with travel to Costa Rica. 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.
After spending about 3 months in Costa Rica, I decided to travel to Guatemala. My focus on wellness, marketing, business and travel remained while integrating Guatemalan experiences.
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.
My Plan to Create Content Like a Boss:
1) Outline travels and content
2) Consider stays and experiences (Airbnbs, Adventures, Wellness)
3) Outline blogs, shows, and videos with CREATEIT Summit and Mastermind
4) Researching adventures and healthy food experiences
6) Create content weekly on blog, show and courses
7) Share how to create what you love and align to launches

5 How will you align it to make money like a boss
The next step might involve brainstorming names for your themes, blogs, shows and posts for social media. I've got great examples with our CREATEIT Online Summit, and Creation Club lifestyle transformation mastermind.
For Guatemala, 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!
At the same time, I decided to focus the adventures within the One Day and Top 10 guides for several reasons. I wanted to increase time on business to business pitches for wellness, business and travel. In addition, I wanted to save time on content creation unless it is something I am very passionate about and/or I am and we are writing an adventure, wellness, business, and/or hospitality piece as part of an ongoing project with a brand.
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 Guatemala, I looked for a place or Airbnb in Guatemala for glamping and a long term stay at Lake Atitlan. I imagined how I would feel staying there, and all the things I would create.
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 Guatemala, I wanted you to see, feel and believe creating what you love is possible for you too. My intention involved being bold and bright. With the Guatemalan culture and colors, this is easy to do! 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 Guatemala 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.
