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 14 weeks have passed like a snap of the fingers. To give you insight, I am sharing the week of April 12-18, 2021.

During this week of my travels, me week didn't start at all how I imagined. I got sick on Sunday, and it carried into Tuesday. As a result, I started the week focusing on getting back to 100% health. While I felt better Wednesday, I felt compelled to be immersed in nature rather than jumping back into creating.

I did create and scale a life, business and community I love, and visited San Marcos La Laguna again.

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

Creating a Life and Business I Love:

Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

In Week 15, 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 14, I shared about glamping in San Marcos La Laguna and visiting Panajachel.

This week, in the midst of creating a life and business I love, I experienced getting traveler's sickness twice. I don't usually get sick when I travel. Every once in a while though, my body is adjusting in more ways than one. I started and ended this week sick with a stomach bug.

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 4 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 Guatemala: Week 15 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!

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 TukTuk's 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

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.

Week 15: Creating and Scaling by Lake Atitlan in Guatemala

The outline below will help you see how I created and scaled this week, as well as how it aligned to my passion, purpose, potential, people & profits.

Since I started off the week sick, I didn't start creating until Thursday this week. After I felt better, Wednesday I immersed myself in nature in San Marcos La Laguna like I share in my One Day at Lake Atitlan in Guatemala guide.

So grateful I use Efficise and Virtual Assistants as they check my emails 2+ times among other tasks.


This includes areas with launches, community, media, series, projects, scaling, and clearing.

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