Today we’d like to introduce you to Jo Placencio.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I am a born and raised Texas Girl. I am a mom to my son Dante’ and our furbaby Spartacus. In my personal life, I’m career-focused and in an amazing relationship with my soulmate, Chris. I work in Pharmaceutical Research. I always knew that I wanted to do something in beauty, fashion, and fitness. I had a business plan for a beauty bar with investors ready to invest in the endeavor. Something deep within said, “This isn’t it”, so I never pulled the trigger and walked away at the last moment. Before my meditations ( I have been meditating for over 16 years), I would continually ask what my purpose was. Don’t we all ask that at some time in our lives? In the middle of one of my meditations I heard,
“Blog”……”Peace, Love, Glam” . It was an “AHH HAH!!” moment. It was perfect and I knew it was the right path. I have always had a passion for all things beauty, fashion, fitness and spirituality. A blog was
the perfect outlet for me to share my love and knowledge with the
world! So on 11/22/17 at 11:22 I launched PEACELOVEGLAM
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
My journey has not always been an easy one, but I firmly believe that the tough times help us to become stronger, more compassionate human beings. Sharing our stories can
help others become the best versions of themselves.
Just like Life – business will always have its ups and downs. I have struggled with creating content, writing content, learning SEO and learning the business of blogging because there are no set rules. Learning a new business module has and still continues to be challenging, but I am up for the challenge.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the PeaceLoveGlam Blog story. Tell us more about your blog.
PeaceLoveGlam Blog is a luxury lifestyle e-destination based in Austin, Texas. Here you will find all things Soulful, Fashion, Fitness, Clean Beauty and Wellness.
What sets me apart is my blog is focused on providing information and educating my readers through product testing and reviews. I test all beauty products for six weeks prior to reviewing and if a product is listed on my blog, it is listed because it works. My purpose is to encourage confidence at every age through fashion, beauty, fitness and wellness.
I have so many proud moments one of my absolute favorite moments – I co-founded an exclusive women empowerment group called Glam Soiree’. It is held bi-monthly, we set intentions, and encourage these amazing women to live their best lives and support each other. We started in January 2019 with six women and now we are at 60 amazing women
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I don’t believe in luck. I don’t count on good luck showing up. I set intentions and I dedicate time to doing the work that is needed to achieve them.
Everything happening in our life is being attracted by our thoughts, actions, words and feelings.
