One Week: Creating a Life & Business I Love: Lake Atitlan

Join me on One Week: Creating a Life and Business I love being at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. My last 13 weeks have passed like a snap of the fingers. One of my Guatemala adventures Glamping at Lake Atitlan happened last week.

During this week of my travels, I moved from San Marcos La Laguna to San Pedro La Laguna across the lake for my monthly stay at Lake Atitlan.

During this week, not only did I create and scale a life, business and community I love, but I explored San Pedro La Laguna, and Panajachel by Lake Atitlan.

I continued to create, transform and inspire during my travel to 7 Continents adventures.

Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

In Week 14, I continued my experience and stay with my Airbnb in San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala by Lake Atitlan. In One Week: Creating a Life & Business I Love: Guatemala Week 13, I shared all about the rest of my time and Top 10 in Antigua, Guatemala and my transition to Lake Atitlan.

This week, in the midst of creating a life and business I love, I experienced transitioning from San Marcos La Laguna to San Pedro La Laguna with a beautiful Guatemalan casita via Airbnb and Lake Atitlan views. I explored San Pedro La Laguna and Panajachel.

Creating and Scaling a Life, Business, and Community

Whether you are a side hustler, work a 9-5, creating a life and business you love full-time, and/or traveling the world, I hope this series encourages and inspires you to take limitless leaps of faith.

If you are seeking freedom in your time, location, expression, community, and ultimately financial freedom, let's #createit. I am right here with you on a path of purpose to freedom (Gal 5:1).

There are ways to transform your wellness, online, media and travel. It may be with online courses, or seeking ways to automate and scale your business like a boss. Let's #createit.

One Week: Creating a Life & Business I Love: Lake Atitlan will help you create, transform, and inspire with an insider look! This is week 3 of my travels in Guatemala, and my first week staying near Lake Atitlan.

If you didn't know, Lonely Planet named Lake Atitlan "Eden on Earth" for great reason.

One Week: Lake Atitlan in San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala: Week 14 of Travels

If you have followed my Creating a Life and Business You Love series, you know I spent my first three months of travel in Costa Rica. If you haven't yet, you may want to check out the series on Creating a Life and Business I Love on the blog and show!

I loved my Guatemala Adventure: Glamping the week right before at San Marcos La Laguna. I started this week off by taking a boat (lancha) across Lake Atitlan to San Pedro La Laguna for 15Q (about $2 USD). Talk about living what I once imagined! So grateful to God!

Lanchas (Boats) like this one are a primary method of transport around the lake. They are reasonable in time and transport. From San Pedro La Laguna to Panajachel on the other side of the lake, it is 25Q currently - about $3-$4 USD.

This is an experience in itself seeing Lake Atitlan up close and personal!

There are TukTuks as well to get around (small vehicles).

I love to walk so I normally walk around town, and most of the villages by the lake are easy to navigate by foot as well.

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

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 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.
