One Week: Creating a Life & Business I Love: Antigua, Guatemala: Week 13
Join me on One Week: Creating a Life and Business I love being in Antigua, Guatemala! The last 12 weeks have flown by, and my time in Antigua, Guatemala is coming to an end.
During my last week in and near the area, not only did I create and scale a life, business and community I love, but I visited Santa Clara Convent, Choco Museo, San Domingo Del Cerro, and Holy Week festivities before leaving on Good Friday for San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala by Lake Atitlan.
I continued to create, transform and inspire during my travel to 7 Continents.
Visiting Antigua, Guatemala
Creating a Life and Business I Love:
In Week 13, I continued my experience and stay with my Airbnb in Antigua, Guatemala with Dido near the center of town. In Week 12 in Antigua, Guatemala, I shared all about the colonial and cultural Antigua family home and why you would love staying at the Airbnb!
This week, in the midst of creating a life and business I love, I experienced walking throughout Antigua, Guatemala, visiting Cerro de La Cruz, Choco Museo, Santa Clara Convent, San Domingo Del Cerro, and Holy Week.

In Week 12 of my travels, I traveled to Guatemala. I realized I would be in Antigua, Guatemala on the during Holy Week, also known as Semana Santa. During this week, I loved experiencing parts of the Semana Santa traditions in Antigua, Guatemala including services, rugs, and concerts.
My Routines: Morning, Daily and Weekly
No matter where you are in the world, how you start your day is powerful in every way.
My Sacred 7 Morning and Night Routines with I Am's, Prayer, Positive Music, Bible Reading, Message, Journaling, and Movement sets me up for success.
My daily routine includes shake, tea and tabs with Herbalife Global Nutrition for 7+ years and counting. I lost over 55+ lbs and chose to be alcohol free 5+ years ago. I compete in fitness shows in National Physique Committee Bikini.
'Disclaimer: Average person loses .5 to 1 lb. a week with healthy active lifestyle.
Every week, I outline my week and days, and continue to align actions to my vision. Every week, things shift depending on faith, feeling and focus.
I outline my Create 7 to help me align actions. Create 7 includes launches, community, scale, clear, media, series, and projects. I practice self-accountability with tools and teams like Click-Up, Focus Matrix, and virtual assistant services. I am in mentorship and coaching currently with Herbalife Nutrition, Super Focus with Tommy Newberry, and Legacy League with Mike Michalowicz.
All along the way, I envision and assess results in community, creators, and creatives.
Walking into the week, I envisioned:
1 Launch Items for Summit & Mastermind
2 Community Creation & Focus
3 Submitting Proposals & Pitches
4 Creator Focus on Videos & Reels
5 Clearing Emails, Team & Media Items
6 Mastermind & Summit Updates & Shares
7 Assessing Daily & Weekly Results
I am creating a life, business and community I love. I am receiving $3,000 - $25,000 daily-weekly-monthly easily for wellness, media, online & travel God willing with incredible community consistently in April. I am DAP, Supervisor and World Team with Herbalife in April.
This is my focus until I hit it not only once but consistent 3+ months. I will adjust after the third month of consistency to align to annual and legacy goals.
Top Three Priorities
1 Community: Sources and Scaling
2 Creators: Courses, Management
3 Creatives: Media, Series, and Books
I focus consistently on creating and scaling a life & business I love & helping others. This is done by integrating faith, wellness, marketing, business and travel.
Not only that, every online course & live experience includes tips, tools & technology for health, wealth, and business hands-on.

Week Schedule At a Glance
Rested at my Airbnb
Unplugged for the Day
I worked all day at my Airbnb catching up on series, scaling, and content.
In the afternoon, I hiked up to Cerro de la Cruz and filmed some videos and visited Choco Museo.

I worked at the Airbnb in the morning. I finished up my blog post on the week. Afterwards, I had an interview, connected with a friend, and connected with a retreat center owner in Ecuador on a project! I started packing with my stay coming to an end on Friday.
I visited Santa Clara Convent and did a mini spa day at San Domingo Del Cerro nearby. I definitely noticed a shift in my energy and needing more downtime with the increase in walking, nearby adventures, and staying at an Airbnb with 6-8 people around.
After finishing my morning routine, I headed over to a laundry service to get my laundry done before I left. I went to go check on my Herbalife package to find out by surprise the GUATEX office was already closed. I emailed them to re-route shipment to Panajachel at Lake Atitlan.
By surprise, I found an adorable place "Soy Chilero" right around the corner that opened up on Good Friday! I loved my juice, crepes, and smoothie! I finished up my blog on Costa Rica Travel Costs & Expenses, worked on some proposals, responded to some people interested in Herbalife and/or opportunities for entrepreneurship, and cleared emails. I chatted with my mom and dad via What'sApp before leaving to meet an Airbnb guest.
I met an Airbnb guest at Fernando's nearby and had a great omelette! I left to go pick up my laundry before they closed, and finish packing. Once I felt at about 95%, I headed off to Central Park for the Holy Week concert and market. I ended up getting some Guatemalan pants, table runner, and souvenirs for friends and family!
I wandered in the park listening to the music after and watching the lights and eating fruits.
In the morning, after I finished packing, I talked to my niece and nephew. They gave me an incredible dance, piano and light show! I let my driver know to pick me up around 12:30 pm in the afternoon to head to Lake Atitlan.
I wanted to go visit Central Park and see the Good Friday and Holy Week Rugs of Semana Santa in Antigua before leaving. I am so glad I did! Pictures don't do them justice!
Afterwards, I headed back to my Airbnb to say bye to my hosts and meet my driver. It took about 4 hours to get to San Marcos La Laguna for my Guatemala Glamping by Lake Atitlan. I had my last meal at about 2:30 pm before starting my fasting and prayer for the weekend.
I arrived just in time before dark to experience the beauty of Bliss Land Bell Tent in the light. I loved the sound of peace and serenity all around me.
I slept like a baby in my tent and comfortable beds. After getting up, I took a shower in the outdoor bamboo shower area. My fast on Day 1 included water and cacao nibs. I read Matthew in the Bible, my Prayer Journal, and Spiritual Warfare Bible. I journaled as well.
In the afternoon, I headed out to explore the streets of San Marcos La Laguna, swam in Lake Atitlan, and had some juice at La Paz. While at La Paz, I reviewed my week as well.
I ended up reading Matthew and falling asleep around 8pm. Keep in mind, it gets pitch black around 6:30 pm in most of Central America.
I got up around 6 am, did my Sacred 7 morning, read in the hammock, went to Cerro Tzanujil, and stopped at Samsura Garden starting to break my fast with veggies.
There you have it.
My week at a glance, and the behind the scenes in Antigua, Guatemala and San Marcos La Laguna by Lake Atitlan!
Week 13: Antigua, Guatemala
The creating, scaling, and traveling continue in Antigua, Guatemala with community and media, as well as the adventures of the colonial streets of the city, spas, and once in a lifetime experiences. I am pinching myself that I got to experience Holy Week or Semana Santa in Guatemala.
