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 16 weeks have passed quickly. To give you insight, I am sharing the week of April 26-May 2, 2021.
While finishing my last week at Lake Atitlan during this visit, I created and scaled a life, business and community I love, as well as explored San Marcos La Laguna, San Juan La Laguna, Jaibalito and transitioned to Guatemala City. Some of my adventures included weaving and standup paddle boarding.
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 17, 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 16, I shared about visiting a Guatemala Cementery, infinity pool by the lake at Sababa Resort, Santa Catarina, and kayaking at Guatemala's Most Magical Hotel.

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).
One Week: Creating a Life & Business I Love: Lake Atitlan will help you create, transform, and inspire with an insider look! This is week 6 of my travels in Guatemala, and my fourth 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 17 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 Series with Blog, Show and Channels
2 Community Creation & Focus
3 Reviewing and 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
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 May. I am DAP, Supervisor and World Team with Herbalife in May.
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.
You will note I stay focused and adjust my actions until the goals are hit. I am closer to hitting the goals. I did get confirmation of a new ongoing project in April. As a result, I thought I would hit the goals in April. When I didn't I readjusted my actions to increase focus on higher impact and return on investment areas.
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.

I increased time allocations for above between myself, automation and delegation at
a Transformation Management 50%
b Influencer Management 10% (Quarterly: May - June)
c Online Launch 20% (Monthly)
d Costa Rica Retreat 20% (Quarterly)
I realized by achieving the Super Focus Goal with Transformation Management it would be easier with one project. In addition, it would provide ongoing revenue and cash for the business and personal expenses, I emphasized focus on Transformation Management with a daily-weekly focus of minimum 7 aligned proposals, 3 meetings, and 1 close weekly.
I recognized with passion, purpose, and priorities combined with travels, adventures, and movements, I needed and wanted to shift my time. I decided to commit to staying in Tulum in Mexico longer. I increased my time to focus in between adventures as well.
All of these integrate the 75+ Tools and Resources to Create a Life & Business You Love!
