EMBRACING YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF
Joani Plenty is an author, coveted speaker, success coach and voiceover actress who is committed to excellence. One of her passions is inspiring others to do the same, emptying their bucket lists along the way. After the need to separate from her last employer, Joani decided that this was a blessing in disguise. She decided to follow her dreams and hasn't looked back since.
Joani is co-author of 'Embracing Your Authentic Self', the 2nd book in the best-selling inspirational women series by Inspired Living Publishing. She is a member of Coachville, NAFE (National Association for Female Executives), WSA (Women Speakers Association) and advocate for Our Strength: No Kid Hungry (ending child hunger in America by 2015). Joani is co-founder of a Master Mind Group with Lisa Asbell in an effort to empower, encourage and motivate women ages 39-49 in the entertainment business. Joani's goal is to share support, resources, and positive feedback utilizing the collective intelligence of the group. Joani believes that having accountibility with round-robin updates via weekly conference calls and special guest interviews from others who have been successful in the business will have an immeasurable impact on the group as a whole.
As a self-proclaimed Professional Social Butterfly, there is no coffee shop, social gathering, restroom or social network that is safe from her welcoming smile and outgoing personality. Joani intentionally makes friends from all walks of life where ever she goes. Once a week, in an effort to pay-it-forward, Joani chooses a person or business via Twitter and asks "What can I do for you?!" (WCIDFY?) and does what she can to help for the entire day. From promoting a product or business or just wishing a loved one a happy birthday via Twitter, her facebook fan page and her website. It was once requested that she call a person's mother to wish her a happy birthday. Joan took it a step further and had her 5 year old son make the call, "Hello, My name is Jackson and I am 5 yrs. old. I just wanted to commit an act of kindness and wish you a happy birthday from your son John". Joani has even been known to make flyers and place them locally on windsheilds wherever she goes that day out of her love for helping others.
"Nothing puts a smile on my face faster than putting a smile on someone elses. I'm extremely passionate about making others happy and feel good about life and what they have. It makes me feel so good...kind of selfish, really." - Joani Plenty
Joani's spare time is spent blogging, horseback riding, designing graphics, teaching her children to perform random acts of kindess or in the mirror with her hair brush microphone. Joani writes children’s books, YA, historical fiction, vampire fantasy and self-help books. Joani dreams of creating a non-profit organization to help infertile couples realize their dream of having a child. She lives in NJ with her husband, the children doctors told her she would never have and Phil, the groundhog who lives under the shed.
