Creating a Life and Business I Love near La Fortuna
My first location in Costa Rica is Dragon Fly Hideaway. I found them on Airbnb. Right away, I knew it is the perfect spot with the colorful homes, pool and kitchen, and incredible WiFi.
In Week 1 in Costa Rica, I shared insights into my three months in Costa Rica and stays.
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, Powerful Message, Journaling, Bible Reading, and Physical Movement sets me up for success.
Not to mention, my 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.
All shots are my own on Canon EOSM100, Sony A330, and/or my iPhone 12 Mini.
Week 2 Outline: Creating a Life & Business I Love
Every week, I outline my week to identify priorities, make adjustments, and evolve further. I assess my actions to my vision.
Over the last several years, I outlined Create 7 to help me align actions. Create 7 includes launches, community, scale, clear, media, series, and projects.
I am a huge proponent of self-accountability and community accountability. I practice both. I am regularly in communities with transformation teachers that help me grow. I track actions via tools like Click-Up and Focus Matrix for accountability. All along the way, I determine what results I want in community, creators, and creatives, and related actions.
Walking into the week, I envisioned:
1 Community Creation & Action
2 Creator Focus on Online Courses
3 Clearing Videos, Emails
4 Updating Mastermind & Summit
5 Summit Shares & Updates
6 Scaling More Tasks
7 Clearing ALL Content from Phone, Camera & Computer
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.
This is my focus until I hit it not only once but consistent 3+ months. I will adjust after the third month to align to my one year and legacy goal.
Top Three Priorities
1 Community: Sources, Proposals, and Scaling
2 Creators: Courses, Management
3 Creatives: Media, Series, and Books
Everything is focused on creating and scaling a business I love & helping others. It integrates faith, wellness, marketing, business and travel. Not only that, every online course & live experience includes tools for health, wealth, and business hands-on.

Although I did decrease adventure, I experienced amazing surprises along the way, and made time for a visit to La Fortuna Park and Church, and Paradise Hot Springs. I ended up meeting some new friends who invited me to Rio Chollin (Free Hot Springs!). I loved it!
This week, I increased my focus on nutrition with Herbalife Nutrition shakes and snacks, as well as workouts on my own and via the Peloton App.
Week Schedule At a Glance
Monday & Tuesday
At my Airbnb most of the day. I did leg and upper body band workouts, as well as stretching.
We went to the Free Hot Springs behind Tabacon, at Rio Chollin late Monday afternoon. Afterwards, we went to Tierra Mia for dinner. I enjoyed an incredible Ceviche, and a Mango and Strawberry juice.

Wednesday I had in mind as a flex and fun day. Earlier in the week, I researched Hot Springs nearby. I decided I would visit Paradise Hot Springs.
After finishing up my morning routine, I cleared more files, checked in with team tasks, and cleared my email. I found an urgent request for a consulting call with a Top 5 Consulting company in the world on media. I emailed back my contact from Alpha Insights.
Once I wrapped up the call, I left to visit La Fortuna Park and Church and get some Ceviche before going to Paradise Hot Springs.
La Fortuna Park and Church
The day started off beautifully with sunshine so I decided to head to La Fortuna Park and Church before Paradise Hot Springs.
Before heading to the park, I stopped to get some Ceviche and Coconut juice to enjoy in the park.

After about an hour of enjoying the park, my lunch, and filming videos, I requested an Uber to Paradise Hot Springs.
Paradise Hot Springs
La Fortuna, Costa Rica is known for their Hot Springs resulting from the activity of Arenal Volcano nearby. There are over 20 Hot Springs to choose from when you visit here.
After looking at several on blogs and Trip Advisor, I decided on Paradise Hot Springs with it's peace and serenity, landscaping and pools. and price and food options.
The entire time, I saw about 15 people. Keep in mind, this is during a weekday and in early 2021. It felt like the perfect fit and experience for me right now. I arrived around 1pm and stayed until about 7pm.
I enjoyed each of the pools and jacuzzi's twice, and ate twice. At the beginning of my visit, I created content taking pictures and filming videos. Afterwards, I put my phone away in my locker focusing on prayer, quiet time, and reflections.
