Tulum, Mexico: My Second Month in 2021

It is amazing how different 2021 is especially when compared to 2020 for my life in so many ways. I started off 2021 with sharing One Week: Creating a Life and Business in each country I am visiting on my travel to 7 Continents. Instead, I decided to start sharing a monthly series on Creating and Adventuring.


The last six months have passed by in the blink of an eye. At the same time, there is so much life in each week and month. To give you insight, I am sharing highlights from the month of June 2021.


I will share summary highlights and insights of creating and adventuring in Tulum, Mexico, This month led to increased focus and discipline in business and finances with community, creators and creatives. I intensified my focus on an 80/20 approach.

Creating a Life and Business I Love:

Tulum, Mexico


Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. Every "overnight success" you see included a prequel or prologue of seasons of patience, persistence, purpose, and pain. Don't let anyone fool you. The bigger the dream and destiny, the likelier you will have more opportunities for refinement in every area of life. #butGod I wouldn't trade any of it.



Creating and Scaling a Life, Business, and Community

Community to Creatives

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.






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 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.

Top Three Priorities

1 Community: Sources and Scaling

2 Creators: Courses, Management

3 Creatives: Media, Series, and Books



This month I joined both a fitness challenge with Paige Hathaway, and a wealth challenge with Eric Worre.



Community

Community includes brands, communities, and business to business proposals.


In the month of June, I submitted over 40 pitches for ongoing wellness, marketing, business and travel. This included project with Matador Network, Workaway, SafetyWings, Outsite, and Remote Year to name a few.


The team with Efficise VAs outreached weekly to monthly to Fortune 500 contacts in HR and Marketing, Travel Bureaus, Influencer, and Freelancing Platforms as well.


Wins included project coming up in Bacalar, Bio Spa Clinique in Tulum, and press releases on over 4 platforms to name a few!


Progress included intensifying focus with an 80/20 approach with pitches and calls over 40 to 60% of each day.



Creators

Creators includes interactions, launches and collaborations with creators who are coaches, bloggers, social media gurus, and content and/or course creators.


In the month of June, this included launching the CREATEIT Summit again with increasing students, listing campaigns on 3+ platforms, and simplifying collaborations.



Creatives

Creatives includes 9 to 5 ers , side hustlers, and those that want to increase travel.


In the month of June, I published over 8 blogs, over 30 Instagram Reels, over 10 videos, over 5 shows, and worked on my book.


I increased simplifying content execution and decreased time I spend. I focused more time at coworking spaces increasing focus and productivity.

Holstika Tulum

Adventures

In the beginning to about mid June, it rained quite a bit so I spent time working and visiting coworking spaces for the most part. Towards the end of a full week of non stop rain, I decided I would explore some. I definitely started to feel cabin fever from being in the house mostly!


On one of the last rainy days in June, I visited Mystika Museum.

The rest of the month, I more than caught up on adventures!


If you didn't know already, biking around Tulum is the BEST way to get around from spot to spot!

Another way is Collectivos - usually about $1 to $2 USD per ride!


I found Taxis to be excessively expensive no matter the options in Tulum. There are no Ubers as of July 2021 in Tulum.



Adventures at a Glance:

Mystika Museum

Coba Ruins

Choo Ha Cenote

Ven A La Luz

Playa del Carmen

El Burrito Amor

Eat At Liefs

Choo Ha Cenote

Within less than 5 miles of Coba Ruins, are three beautiful Cenotes. In June 2021, I visited Choo Ha. I think you will agree it is breathtaking and off the beaten path! After getting to Coba, I rented a bike for $5 USD to ride to the Cenote.
