We had the good fortune of connecting with Viviana Estrada and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Viviana, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
I want people to remember me as the person who helped them realize their greatness and helped them maximize their possibilities of living an abundant life.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My business is my passion, or better off, I built a business around my passion. I’m passionate about the power of Qi, pronounced “chee”, which is the energy that circulates and permeates the universe, thus the key to unlocking anything in life. I’m also passionate about helping people. I combined my two passions and created Viviana Estrada Life Coaching. I’m in the life coaching industry but my business is different because to take people from where they are to where they want to be I use tools developed around Qi, which is the backbone of Chinese metaphysics and the subject matter of practices like qigong, feng shui, Chinese astrology, traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, to name some. Starting, operating, and growing the business has not been easy; it has required a lot of work and innovation. My motivation and strong desire to help others with my skills have been key during the journey.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
There are too many places to visit and enjoy in Miami and the surrounding area. If my friend was staying for a week I would recommend the following: Day 1: Coral Gables’ beautiful architecture, lunch at Zucca. Day 2: Coconut Grove’s amazing ocean views, lunch at Greenstreet café, stay to enjoy the night life. Day 3: Beach day at South Beach, lunch at Havana 957, stay to enjoy the night life. Day 4: Breakfast at Zak the Baker, admire Wynwood walls. Dinner at South Beach’s Joe’s Stone Crab. Day 5: Shopping at Bal Harbour Shops, lunch at Carpaccio. Dinner at Los Ranchos Restaurant in Bayside. Day 6: Lunch at Time Out Market. Shopping at Lincoln Road, dinner at Juvia. Day 7: Shopping at Brickell City Centre, lunch at Casa Tua Cucina. Dinner at Crazy about You.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to dedicate this shoutout to all my Chinese metaphysics teachers, especially to master Chunyi Lin, the creator of Spring Forest Qigong, whose teachings allowed me to “connect all the dots”, see the big picture, and be in a better position to help people.
