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

Hi Giovanina, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
Well, definitely balance in life is everything. Personally, I think that we must prepare everyday through tools like yoga, meditation or painting, just to mention ones. The real goal is find the tools adapted to your lifestyle and turn little daily practices like your coffee in the morning into a rituals and moments to connect with yourself, with the present. I found in the Astrology a great way to know me and that’s for me the key to the balance. I’m mom of two so balance now is an effective perception and use of the time, my coffee time in the morning, a yoga class weekly, time to take a bath or self care, living one day at the time knowing that not all it’s gonna be perfect but I just flow.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
it’s been a journey full of surprises and good people, hard moments that just remind us how strong we are. We grow up through experiences and changes, the most important thing that I’ve learned is the the only constant is change! we need to be open about changes.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Perez art museum wynwood Vizcaya museum and gardens Regatta Park Hollywood beach Miracle Mile Sunny Isles beach To eat: Doggis (Venezuelan food) Al Carbon (best burgers ever) The Salty donut

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My dad who always encouraged me to be the best in anything that I decided to do. My hubby! thanks for always be there and see the good stuff. My little girls that are my rock. Family & friends, eventually everything in life is quality over quantity.
