One Week: Creating a Life & Business I Love: Monteverde, Costa Rica: Week 6

My last week in Monteverde, Costa Rica. While I am excited for what is next, my time coming at an end in Monteverde is bittersweet. Santa Elena, Monteverde, Casa Balbi with Larry, Grethen, Diego, Oscar, and Manuelito have all left imprints on my heart. The time I have spent in Monteverde, Costa Rica in a word = priceless.

I find myself incredibly fortunate for how incredible my last two stays and experiences in La Fortuna and Monteverde, Costa Rica have been. I wonder what is coming up next in and near Manuel Antonio.

If there is one thing I have learned is there is always more. My first month in La Fortuna, Costa Rica flew by. In a sense, my time in Monteverde, Costa Rica felt slower and calmer. At the same time, my three weeks have flown by too! While creating, scaling and traveling through the 7 Continents with Central and South America in 2021, I am constantly adjusting.

In Week 4, I transitioned to my second Airbnb in Monteverde, Costa Rica by jeep-boat-jeep from La Fortuna, Costa Rica. In Week 5 in Monteverde, Costa Rica, I experienced Stella's, Children's Eternal Rainforest, Orchid Gardens and Cafe to name a few of my adventures while creating and scaling what I love.

In Week 6, I reflected on creating and scaling, as well as what adventures I wanted to have before I left Monteverde, Costa Rica.

One Week in Monteverde, Costa Rica: Week 6

If you have followed my Creating a Life and Business You Love series, you know I spent my first month in La Fortuna, Costa Rica at Dragon Fly Hideaway. Right when I saw it, I knew it is the perfect spot with the colorful homes, pool and kitchen, and incredible WiFi.

Week 1 in Costa Rica, I shared insights into my three months in Costa Rica and stays.

My first week blew me away with my one week adventure and creating a life and business I love in Cota Rica. In week 2, I spent more time at my Pink House at Dragon Fly Hideaway creating and scaling. In week 3 in Costa Rica, I continued creating and scaling, while enjoying Sloth Tour, Rio Chollin, Baldi Hot Springs, and El Salto too!

During Week 4 in Costa Rica, I transitioned to Monteverde, Costa Rica including a jeep-boat-jeep tour across Lake Arenal.

In comparison, in Week 6, I took some time off to unplug, filmed videos, proposed projects, connected with community, experienced a Farm, Orchid and Night Tour, and strolled across magical and mystical Hanging Bridges in Selvatura Park.

The beginning of my week involved unplugging, followed by a focus on series, videos, courses, and proposals mid week to Saturday.

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, Bible Reading, Message, Journaling, and Movement sets me up for success.

My daily routine includes 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.

'Disclaimer: Average person loses .5 to 1lb 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. My last week in Monteverde, Costa Rica was no different.

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 Efficise.
