One Week: Creating a Life & Business I Love: near San Jose, Costa Rica: Week 11

Join me on One Week: Creating a Life and Business I love being in and near San Jose, Costa Rica. The last 11 weeks have flown by, and my time and travel to Costa Rica is ending this week! I am coming back in July 2021 to Puerto Viejo, Nosara, and La Fortuna, Costa Rica for our Retreat and more!

You will love San Jose, Costa Rica whether you are an entrepreneur, digital nomad, and traveler around the world.

During my last week in and near the area, not only did I create and scale a life and business I love, but I visited Hacienda La Chimba, incredible foodie experience in Escazu, Costa Rica, and a walking tour on my One Day in San Jose, Costa Rica.

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

Hacienda La Chimba

Creating a Life and Business I Love:

in and near San Jose, Costa Rica

In Week 11, I continued my experience and stay with my Airbnb in Escazu, Costa Rica: Joyeria Emilia Rodriguez. Escazu is about 10-15 min away from San Jose, Costa Rica downtown.

I picked Emilia's Airbnb because of her amazing outdoor space, private rooms, and rave reviews including going above and beyond with hospitality in every way. I have loved my stay!

This week, I got to experience Hacienda La Chimba, Cocina Elektica (Eclectic Kitchen) my fourth time, and a walking tour in San Jose, Costa Rica.

Creating and Scaling a Life, Business, and Community

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.

All shots are my own on Canon EOSM100, Sony A330, and/or my iPhone 12 Mini.

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 and Super Focus with Tommy Newberry.

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 March. I am DAP, Supervisor and World Team with Herbalife in March.

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.

4 Clear

I cleared 90% from both my Cameras this week. I cleared over 80% of my phone. At the end of the week, I had my phone down to <45 pictures and videos. With all the content I created for the mastermind and summit at the other three destinations, I decided to increase focus on sharing it via channels and launches.

5 Series

I completed the blogs and shows above. I outlined blogs and shows coming up with Top 10 Things to Do in and Near San Jose, Costa Rica, and Online Series with 7 Steps to Starting a YouTube Channel, 7+ Reels for Instagram that Will Leave You Reeling, and Content Like a Boss: Costa Rica Edition.

6 Scaling

Over 75% of the business is automated via tools like Kajabi, Task Virtual, and Efficise. In Automate and Scale Your Business Like a Boss, I share automation and delegation including finding opportunities, social media, and business development.

I paused several tasks, adjusted tasks with one virtual assistant service, and decided on expanding with another one on some areas.

I teach this hands-on in our online courses and retreats too. I outline tasks in 3-5 steps to automate and delegate. I continuously assess tasks to increase service, free up my time, and teach others to do the same.

7 Projects

a I am sharing the CREATEIT Summit & FREE 14 Day Challenge preview to the Creation Club: Online Mastermind with Health, Wealth & Business including Tips, Tools & Tech hands-on is open and being shared. I am filming the third series for Costa Rica currently the week coming up.

b I followed up on the two campaigns on Intellifluence for CREATEIT Summit for creators to spotlight with pre-recorded sessions, as well as for the Costa Rica Retreat in August 2021. I paused the retreat campaign, and started an Influencer Management campaign.

c Costa Rica: Transform & Travel Retreats series on blog and show, and promotions with hosts of Dragon Fly Hideaway.

It absolutely was an amazing day!
