One Week: Creating a Life & Business I Love: La Fortuna and Monteverde, Costa Rica: Week 4

Creating a life and business I love while traveling globally continues to leave me in awe. There are many moments I feel surreal, yet at home all at the same time. If you have transitioned from having a home base and traveling to traveling full-time, you likely know exactly how I feel. If you haven't maybe you have imagined the feeling of limitless global travel.


The first few weeks in La Fortuna, Costa Rica flew by. I think this resulted from a 180 degree turn from what life I experienced Oct-Dec 2020 in Atlanta, GA. My second week in Costa Rica increased in creating and scaling, while having less adventure compared to my first week in Costa Rica. While creating, scaling and traveling through the 7 Continents with Central and South America in 2021, I am adjusting my days and weeks.


In Week 4, I transitioned to my second Airbnb in Monteverde, Costa Rica by jeep-boat-jeep from La Fortuna, Costa Rica. My pace here in Monteverde, Costa Rica has shifted as well. There is an increase in time in nature, being present, and a decrease in temperature. Creating a Life and Business I love feels and looks different here in Monteverde, Costa Rica.

Transitions from La Fortuna to Monteverde, Costa Rica

If you have followed my Creating a Life and Business You Love series, you know I spent my first month in Costa Rica at Dragon Fly Hideaway. From the start, I knew it is the perfect spot with the colorful homes, pool and kitchen, and incredible WiFi.


Week 1 in Costa Rica, I shared insights into my three months in Costa Rica and stays.

My first week in Costa Rica blew me away with my one week adventure and creating a life and business I love. In week 2, I spent more time at my Pink House at Dragon Fly Hideaway creating and scaling. In week 3 in Costa Rica, I continued creating and scaling, while enjoying Sloth Tour, Rio Chollin, Baldi Hot Springs, and El Salto too!


In comparison, in Week 4, I experienced transition and transformation from the inside out. I moved locations from La Fortuna to Monteverde, Costa Rica mid-week. As a result, the first part of my week involved wrapping things up and packing, and the end of my week included shifts and exploring in Monteverde, Costa Rica.


No matter where you are in the world, how you start your day is powerful in every way.

My Sacred 7 Morning 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 5+ years and counting. I lost over 55+ lbs and choose to be alcohol free 5+ years ago. I compete in fitness shows in National Physique Committee Bikini. Disclaimer: Average person loses .5 to 1lb a week with healthy active lifestyle.

Week 4 Outline: Creating a Life & Business I Love in Costa Rica

Every week, I outline my week and days, and continue to align actions to my vision. There are often exponential shifts especially when I adjust my environment.


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 like Click-Up and Focus Matrix.. I am active in online communities as well.


All along the way, I envision and assess results in community, creators, and creatives.



Walking into the week, I envisioned:

1 Community Creation & Focus

2 Creator Focus on Videos & Reels

3 Clearing Emails, Team & Media Items

4 Submitting Proposals & Pitches

5 Summit Shares & Updates

6 Scaling New Tasks

7 Assessing Daily & Weekly Results



Super Focus

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 with incredible community consistently by March 1. I am DAP, Supervisor and World Team with Herbalife before March 1.


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 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.
