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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

The CREATEIT Summit will be open again in April!! Right now, I am seeking creators to spotlight with pre-recorded sessions on wellness, faith, marketing, business and travel.

The FREE 14 Day Challenge preview to the Creation Club: Online Mastermind with Health, Wealth & Business including Tips, Tools & Tech hands-on is open!

Last week, I shared how I knew I would increase space and focus this week, while decreasing adventure. 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.

I connected on social media, influencer marketing and online courses with the firm. Initially, the project is short-term and may grow to an ongoing long-term project.

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.

I loved my visit at Paradise Hot Springs in La Fortuna, Costa Rica.

This was a great way to infuse rest and relaxation mid week.

I worked out after coming back to my Airbnb.


I continued on focusing on community, scaling and clearing with business development, platforms, and social media.

I worked out earlier in the day with legs and bands.

One of the families, who are full-time missionaries in Costa Rica staying at one of the other homes at Dragon Fly invited me for dinner with their beautiful family. I enjoyed it so much!


Fridays I tend to keep as a flex day or an adventure/flex day. This Friday, I took a bit more time with my morning routine and Esther Bible Study.

I connected with my mom and dad in Bulgaria for awhile. I spoke with a great friend of mine, Priscilla for 20+ years in Houston, Texas.

I finished up clearing the rest of the photos on both cameras, as well as clearing my phone and computer.

I did a Flash 15 workout on Peloton.

At 9pm, I participated in a Mentor Call via the Orlando Success Training Seminar with Naeem with Herbalife Global Nutrition.

Afterwards, I watched a part of the movie Lucy and went to sleep.


I woke up before 7am and completed my morning routine. I assessed my week for celebrates and adjustments. I evaluated where and how I could increase my focus to line up with goals and legacy.

From 10am - about 2pm, I focused on our Herbalife Global Nutrition training with

results, methods, and personal development.

I booked a Sloth Trail for Sunday after church. I listen to Church via Transformation Church with Pastor Michael Todd weekly as well.

There you have it.
