We had the good fortune of connecting with Jo Placencio and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jo, we’d love to hear what makes you happy.
My heart is so happy when I am helping, connecting ,supporting and inspiring others. It feeds my soul. Why- Its is my purpose and when you find your purpose you cant be anything other than happy.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Jo Placencio is a pharmaceutical research associate by day and a full time blogger by night. Her focus is on all things soulful, health, wellness, clean beauty and fashion! These encompass all the things she loves, because what is one without the other? She is passionate about life, and loves every minute with her son Dante’, soulmate Chris, and their precious Chihuahua, Spartacus. In addition to Jo’s current career, her past studies are in skincare esthetics. All of her life experience drives her to live life to the fullest and continue sharing and learning from others. Jo also co-hosts an event called Glam Soiree, Glam Soiree is an ‘intentional’ event where women of all different backgrounds and professions come together to celebrate life, support and inspire each other, set intentions for the future – and be GLAM while doing it all. My proud moment-Jo recently added Reiki Master to my her list of accomplishments. She is very excited for this next chapter in her journey and helping others, because helping others feeds her soul. Lessons I have learned along the way – Be authentically you, Ask for what you want, never settle, Believe that you can and you will. No one is you that is a superpower. Challenges- I can transcend lifes challenges because deep in my soul , I know that I can overcome anything once I set my mind to it,. I owe this powerful mindset to my daily meditation and gratitude practice. I believe that we all have a special place in this world we just have to tap into that space and become it.
