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

My 2021 has started off on fire in more ways than one. Not only did I experience more adventure in the first week of 2021 compared to all of 2020, I focused on creating a life and business I love to a whole new level.

In 2021 Vision: A Year Ahead, I shared two parts of a Vision Framework. I focus on creating a life and business I love and aligning my actions by day, week and month to the vision. I stay flexible, assess, and adjust regularly.

Whether you are working from home or going global, this will help you increase vision, clarity and action in creating a life and business you love. Some things have happened sooner than I thought, like my travel to Costa Rica on my way to 7 Continents. Others haven't happened yet. I exercise patience at every turn.

I am learning both increased focus and fun day by day, and week by week. Not only that, the levels of automation and delegation exponentially grew in 2020 and continue to. This increases freedom in many ways to have adventures too. Speaking of which, don't think with all my adventures, I am not creating a lot too.

There's a variety of ways to grow your wellness, online, media and travel business no matter where you are in the world. Whether you are starting on social media, increasing your online courses, growing influencer marketing, and/or offering consulting, there are ways to automate and scale your business like a boss.

One Week: Creating a Life & Business I Love: La Fortuna, Costa Rica to create and scale a life, business, and community you love will help you create, transform, and inspire. These are ways I created and scaled during my first week in Costa Rica, and an insider look at One Week of Creating and Scaling a Life and Business I Love in La Fortuna, Costa Rica.

Pura Vida!

Dragon Fly Hideaway in Costa Rica

My first Airbnb in Costa Rica: Dragon Fly Hideaway by La Fortuna and work from home environment.

Creating a Life and Business I Love near La Fortuna

This is my first location in Costa Rica. When searching for my first stay and Airbnb, I wanted to make sure my work from home environment would increase creativity, focus, and creating with ease. As a result, the outdoor environment and WiFi are important. Dragon Fly Hideaway is perfect in all ways.

Although I am staying in Costa Rica for about three months, I am staying in three different parts and Airbnbs in Costa Rica. They are all helping me create a life, business and community I love. Whether you are working from home like you were in 2020, or going global like I am, how and where you work from makes a differences.

The stay, environment, and how you feel will increase your creativity, focus and productivity like you never imagined. Creating a life, business, and community you love becomes easier with a spirit full of joy, love, and adventure.

My first week in La Fortuna, Costa Rica has me blown away both with my one week adventure and one week creating a life and business I love.

Morning Routine

Although I am traveling and staying in new places, my morning routine remains the same. Putting first things first helps you win the day as an entrepreneur.

I practice what I call my Sacred 7 Morning every day including:

I Ams







Within my morning routine, this includes shake, tea, tabs with Herbalife Global Nutrition (and sunblock too!)

Healthy Travel with Herbalife Nutrition Pool Side

All shots are my own on Canon EOSM100, Sony A330, and/or my iPhone 12 Mini.

Week Outline: Creating a Life & Business I Love

Each and every week, I outline my week. I make sure I am aligning my actions to my vision.

The evening before a day, I make adjustments. The day of, I outline actions according to my Create 7. Each day and week, I track actions via Click-Up and Focus Matrix for accountability and management. In addition, I assess each week for results in community, creators, and creatives.

Walking into the week, I envisioned:

1 Focus on Vision for the Year

2 Community Creation

3 Clearing Emails

4 Summit Shares & Updates

5 Media on Blog & Show

6 Scaling More Tasks

7 Clearing Content from Phone, Camera & Computer

If you have read my 2021 Vision, you are familiar with my Create 7. If you haven't yet, this focuses on prioritizing my actions aligned to my Super Focus and Top Priorities.

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. I am DAP, Supervisor and World Team with Herbalife.

Top Three Priorities

1 Community: sources, propose, and scale

1 Creators: courses, mgmt

One Week: Creating and Scaling in La Fortuna, Costa Rica.

Depending on priorities and the day, I may focus on 1 area, 3 areas, and sometimes all 7 in a day.

3 Media

In case you thought I am all play or all work, you may clearly see I am freely creating a life and business I love in every way. The key is transforming your mind and making time. I am even blown away at the clarity and flow with everything! I have never before completed this amount of media in a week, plus sharing on social.

On social, I shared 5+ reels, 3+ IGTVS, and 50+ stories easily. This included sharing everything from stories to videos on wellness, marketing, business & travel.

Next week, you will see an increase in focus on my books as well.

4 Clear

I cleared a ton this week from my Cameras, Phone, and Computer including prior content from Mexico, and all existing photos and videos from this week. I uploaded all of them to DropBox, some to YouTube, and prepped them for the next phase for the Summit and Online Courses.

5 Online

I updated all content the month before travel to Costa Rica for CREATEIT Summit.

In 2021, it will continue to grow with updates in the Creation Club Mastermind, CREATEIT Summit launching every quarter with goals of 6+ figures, and creating and launching future courses like

How to Create & Launch a Lifestyle Brand Like a Boss in 90 Days or Less &

How to Create & Launch a Retreat.

This week, I cleared and prepped the next round of uploads for Creation Club. In addition, I outlined the next 12 videos to film for the online mastermind in La Fortuna at my Airbnb next week.

6 Scaling

In 2020, I massively increased Automate and Scale Your Business Like a Boss. In 2021, this is continuing. I ended 2020 with Efficise VAs and ongoing delegation with business development with wellness, online, business and travel platforms, business development and tasks.

This includes social media, influencer marketing, investor research, and aligning to wellness and travel platforms to name a few. I teach this hands-on in our online courses and retreats too.

In the last 2+ weeks, I added Task Virtual for a variety of tasks including a focus on growing my Pinterest Like a Boss, as well as YouTube channel.

I am constantly assessing tasks to free up my time, and teach others to do the same. I regularly outline any task in 3-5 steps and automate and scale.

7 Projects

This week I updated and delegated updates for Creation Club and Summit.

The CREATEIT Summit is currently on in January, and again in April!!

I am proud of myself for creating and challenging myself in every way. At the same time, I adjusted and stopped some tasks due to impact in focus and/or timing. I celebrated the growth in community in various ways. In addition, I evaluated where I may improve achieving goals, as well as bottom line results.

I think part of my increase in adventure and execution this week is due to a release of the increased isolation from 2020. Not to mention, the Pura Vida and sunshine here in Costa Rica. At the same time, I assessed where I experienced back to back adventure Wednesday - Friday morning and the impact to execution.

As a result, moving forward I will increase the space in between adventures even more to allow for focused time on creating and serving others. Not only that, but ensuring my energy stays high and stable. On Friday, after my visit the Villas Blessed Farm, I felt both fulfilled and drained and fell asleep for 5+ hours.

I decided for the week coming up, I will spend time on Sunday listening to Transformation Church, and go to La Fortuna, Costa Rica afterwards to visit the church downtown and have Ceviche. Afterwards, I am planning on going to the Termalitas Del Arenal or Baldi Hot Springs to

fully relax and recharge.

My week coming up is much more focused to create and execute with results, as well as slower paced with adventure. On Monday and Tuesday, I am staying at my Airbnb creating and scaling with community, creators, and creatives online with my CREATE 7. I will take breaks to grab a shake with Herbalife, eat, workout, and take a dip in the pool.

On Wednesday, Thursday, and/or Friday, I may go on an adventure with Salto (a Tarzan Swing by the river in town), a Sloth Trial Tour, and/or SUP (Stand Up) Paddle-boarding in Lake Arenal. However, I have not confirmed or booked anything as I am keeping my adventures this week more spontaneous.
