She explains the importance of focusing on mindset, methodology, and motivation.  She then breaks down her I.S.S.I. the methodology used in the course that helps her students create lives with freedom and flexibility that is also aligned with their personal and professional goals.   Sienna also talks about “co-living” and her role as the Director of Marketing and Business Development at Sun & Co. in Javea, Spain.  She talks about the most effective marketing tactics that are working right now, how she balances her work at Sun & Co. with building LMDES, and how she optimizes her personal productivity and mitigates stress.
