The Life Design MindsetA Revolutionary Framework to Create The Life You Love

 with Celinne Da Costa

I don’t know you yet, but I’ll bet I know something deep and important about you:You desire the freedom and flexibility to travel, anytime, on your own terms, exploring your fullest, richest self in a variety of exciting and diverse settings.

You dream of a passport-ready lifestyle where you can say, “I want to go to Milan this weekend” (or Rio, Bali, Marrakesh, or Havana,) and just go.

For a weekend. A month. Or even with an open-ended, one-way ticket.

Yet, I’ll bet I know something else about you...

You don’t necessarily think this is possible for you. In fact, you may think it’s totally out of reach.

I know this because every day, women write to me on Instagram--where I share my travel adventures from around the world--and they say, “I wish I could do that!” (implying that they think they can’t).

Maybe you think your job won’t allow it. Or you could never get out of your job. Or you don’t have the money.

Maybe you see some of your friends or people you look up to living the “location independent” digital nomad lifestyle--but you just can’t fathom how you could create this lifestyle for yourself.

Well, I have a message for you. And I’m basing this message directly from my own experience, because I’ve thought just the same things you have about this…

Yes you CAN live this lifestyle.And you can live it SOON.

 What’s the secret?Before I share it with you, let me tell you a little story about how I created this lifestyle for myself.

The Disaster Story, Before I Figured Shit Out…October 2015 was quite a month for me, and not in a good way…. this seems like it’s straight out of a novel, but here’s what actually happened:

My then-boyfriend dumped me on my 25th birthday.

A week later, my roommate raised my rent by $700 per month.

A week after that, I discovered that I didn’t get a promotion at my advertising job, which I had thought was a sure thing.

Before I knew it, I was single, and needing to move out of my overpriced New York City apartment (as I couldn’t afford the rent raise), and feeling cheated by my company.

With all these dilemmas hitting me at once, I went from riding high and having my shit together, to having none of it together, and feeling totally lost, hopeless, and confused.

Pardon my French, but I was feeling fucked up.

It hit me that I no longer had much tying me to New York. No man, no place, no desire to work at this job anymore… and definitely not nearly enough money to survive there.

I started looking into other options.

I was born in Italy and spent my first ten years there before immigrating to the U.S., so I used my European background to look for jobs in Europe. I was interviewing for pretty solid companies like Google and WPP. Facebook even flew me out to Ireland for a final interview. I felt like I was being a responsible adult.

But as the time came closer and closer to hearing an answer from the jobs I was interviewing for, I realized...


I wasn’t sure I wanted the answer from these corporate job interviews to be “yes!”That’s crazy, right?

Here I was, a textbook broke millennial, the kind thousands of concerned articles are written about in the news… and I had the likelihood of getting amazing job opportunities from stable and prestigious employers in Europe…

And I didn’t want the jobs?!What was I thinking?

Here’s what I was thinking.In the back of my mind, there was a little voice that was asking me:

  • favicon-01

    Why are you slaving your life away for 10 hours a day to big corporations whose purpose you don’t really care about anyways, when you can’t see any correlation between your actions and creating something you actually care about?

  • favicon-01

    Why are you working so hard so you can spend half of your money to live in a box and be so busy you have to schedule your friends weeks in advance every time you want to see them?

  • favicon-01

    What are you actually creating each day? Why are you accepting this meaningless routine?


I longed to reconnect with myself and remember what it felt like to be a real human being.

To sit in a park and leisurely read a book. To have real conversations with strangers.

To have the bandwidth to do these basic human things…and to not be the kind of person who uses the word “bandwidth” in relation to their own life.

To not live like a hamster on a wheel, running after some goal, and when I get there realizing that goal wasn’t I wanted anyways.

My favorite things in the world were (and still are) traveling, writing, and connecting with real people.

I realized that, if my Plan A of getting a safe, stable corporate job in Europe didn’t work out, then fuck it, I wanted to do Plan B: traveling the world while writing and meeting new people (but only if Plan A didn’t work out).

In between job-hunting tasks, I started Googling incessantly about travel options. I thought, “Let’s say I did travel the world. What would I do? Where would I go? What would I want?”

And then one day, just like in the movies, my best friend Natalie looked at me and said one sentence, straight up, that rocked my world and changed my life forever:

“Celinne, I think your Plan B is your Plan A.”Mic drop.

The Crazy Adventure Begins...

Fuck it.After Natalie said that, I decided I was going to do it.

I decided I didn’t want to do the typical backpacker/hostel thing. That just felt meaningless to me. Plus, there was another reason.

Cheap as hostels are, I wanted to travel for a long time, and I didn’t have the money to be paying for accomodation for six months to a year.

I needed to find a way to do this that felt meaningful and was also feasible on an extremely low budget.

I wanted this to be some kind of challenge. A journey. A project.

So I decided I was going to do a social experiment.

I would travel around the world staying only in people’s homes, specifically, locals who invited me in.

Furthermore, I would not use sites such as Great as those sites are, I wanted to make it more of a challenge. I wanted to rely on my wits, and my social skills, to meet people who would invite me to live with them for short bursts at a time.

Needless to say, this was a pretty scary thing to contemplate.

I took all my fears and broke them down in reasonable ways to do things:

  • favicon-01

    First, I made a plan to quit my job within six months and to save all the money I needed for my trip before quitting.

  • favicon-01

    Next, I became a savings queen. I cut out fancy coffees and drinks with friends. The park and other free activities became my new best friends--no more movies, cover charges, or other paid entertainment. Plus, I moved back in with Mom.

  • favicon-01

    In anticipation of traveling, I started downsized all my things. I sold an old camera and a pair of designer shoes on eBay, and all my furniture on Craigslist.

  • favicon-01

    I took on freelance work on the side. Difficult when I was already working 50 hours a week--but I knew I needed to reach my goals.

Within six months, I had saved $10,000.Given my previous New York lifestyle, that’s actually the most I had ever saved.

The day I quit my job, I bought my ticket for the first leg of my trip to Italy. I wanted to start this challenge somewhere easy, where I already had friends to stay with.

Over the next nine months, my travels took me to Austria, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary, Croatia, Montenegro, Greece, United Arab Emirates, Nepal, Myanmar, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Panama, and then--finishing the circumnavigation--all throughout the US.

I’ll wait to share with you all the adventures I had--and a few near-disasters--convincing total strangers to let me stay on their couches around the globe.

But I’ll finish this story here telling you this:By the end of this $8,500, nine-month trip around the globe, I had completely left behind my cynicism from working in the advertising industry and fell back in love with humanity.

I wanted to prove to myself that we live in a world where we can meet new people, sit down with them at a cafe or on a porch, have real conversations at a leisurely, human pace, and learn from them, with no agenda. Listening to each other’s stories just because we want to connect.

I learned that people are good, kind, and will help you. But you have to believe that they will.

It’s a busy planet, which we have to cohabit with seven billion people. We might as well get to know and like them.

Are You Ready for Something Different in Your Life?Are you feeling stuck and overwhelmed, but not willing to spend months--or even YEARS--trying to figure out how to design a lifestyle that you’re freaking excited to wake up to every single day?

Do you know that you have the power to design your dream life?Do you want practical, actionable, and results-focused advice, to know what steps you actually need to take to make big changes in your life?

Are you done stagnating in your fears, when you KNOW that the second you get clarity on where to start, you’ll feel motivated to skyrocket into your next-level self?

Many of us grew up being told how to live our lives and not asking why, but I will show you that it doesn’t have to be that way. Life design--that is, the process of becoming your best self and creating a lifestyle that is tailored to your needs, passions, and dreams--is completely achievable for those who are willing to put in the work.

People who made up this game called life were no smarter than us: we have the power to walk away from the “rules” and make our own.

I know because I’ve done it.In just a few years, I’ve gone from being a corporate dropout to building a life that allows me to travel full-time, set my own schedule, spend my days pursuing my passions, and serve others in ways that inspire me.

My life isn’t perfect (does that even exist?) but it’s pretty damn awesome. Best part is--the lifestyle you desire is completely accessible to you.

That’s why I created The Life Design Mindset: How To Manifest Your Heart’s Desires Into Reality... to show you exactly how.

This is What You Actually Want:Imagine a life where you can travel the world full-time. Not only that, but you get to work less in a job you love, spend more time with loved ones, make good money, and help people along the way. Time, location, and financial freedom--it’s more possible than you imagined.

You might ask, “Saving money and traveling is great, Celinne--but how will I fund this in the long run if I’ve left my boring-ass corporate job?”

Great question!

After my 9-month trip, I knew I could never go back. But my savings had almost run out, and I had no job. I needed to find a way to live this new lifestyle sustainably, that didn’t depend on corporate employment. I had lucrative job offers, but there was no way I could take them.

The obvious solution was to get a freelance job. But when I was looking online, none of them were encapsulating the depth of what I wanted to do (copywriting on Fiverr for $20 an hour? No thanks…).

I just didn’t want to go back to the grind.

I knew I had to build a business that would offer me financial freedom and the flexibility to travel. Problem was, I didn’t know anything about starting a business.

For the next several months, I was running around like a headless chicken, trying to figure things out.

I wish I’d had a course to teach me, so I didn’t need to learn by trial and error.Which is why--now that I’ve actually built exactly the business I dream of, by trial and error--I’ve created this course for you.

I wish I’d had a course to teach me, so I didn’t need to learn by trial and error.Which is why--now that I’ve actually built exactly the business I dream of, by trial and error--I’ve created this course for you.

So you don’t need to make all the mistakes I made. I’ve already made them for you… you can just jump to “Go!”

I went from corporate dropout to creating my own business teaching other people what I’ve learned: to design your own life and step into the story you were meant to live.

Within 9 months of starting my coaching business, I was helping people live the lives they always wanted to live. And doing so, I had earned my first $100,000, and it’s scaling up from there every month.
