One Week: Creating a Life & Business I Love: near San Jose, Costa Rica: Week 9

Updated: Mar 23, 2021

Join me on One Week: Creating a Life and Business I Love near San Jose, Costa Rica area. The last 9 weeks have flown by! The area in and near San Jose, Costa Rica is great to discover more about Costa Rica, as well as find many options as an entrepreneur, digital nomad, and traveler around the world.

During my first week in and near the area, not only did I create and scale a life and business I love, but I experienced a fresh fruit market in Escazu, Costa Rica.

Whether I experienced adventures, or focused on creating a life and business I love, I increased my presence, peace, and progress in every way. During this week, I moved my stays with Airbnb's from Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica to Escazu, Costa Rica at Joyeria Emilia Rodriguez near San Jose.

Creating a Life and Business I Love:

in and near San Jose, Costa Rica

In Week 9, 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 so far!

In the first week alone, she took me on a quick tour around highlighting the Fresh Fruit Market on Saturdays, Sin Domicilio Fijo Arte & Cafe, and recommended an incredible waterfall hike to Rio Agres, as well as food experience at Cocina Electica, and Hacienda La Chimba for experiences for the following week!

One Week near and in San Jose, Costa Rica: Week 9

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. If you have followed along the journey of my being a #limitlessglobalgirl, you have seen the transition to Monteverde, Costa Rica including a jeep-boat-jeep tour across Lake Arenal. If you haven't yet, you may want to check out the series on the blog and show!

In comparison to my prior weeks. in Week 9 in Costa Rica, I loved creating and scaling a life and business I love while experiencing incredible adventures in and near San Jose, Costa Rica.

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 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.

This week, I reached 3,000 minutes on Peloton App as well.

'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. My last week in Manuel Antonio included staying focused on creating and scaling, while integrating adventures freely.

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. 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 Mastermind & 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 by March 1. I am DAP, Supervisor and World Team with Herbalife before March 1.

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.

6 Scaling

I scaled over 4 new tasks, and updated prior tasks delegated with team members. 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 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

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.

I added retreats to new platforms focusing on a Costa Rica: Transform & Travel Retreats in August. I am starting the series this week on the blog & show for travel & retreats.
