We had the good fortune of connecting with JoJo LaRiccia and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi JoJo, why did you pursue a creative career?
I have chosen a creative career as a Media Content Creator,Producer & Director because it’s where I can make the biggest impact on the planet and within myself.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a Media Content Creator, Producer & Director. I am helping folks who want to get the message of their brand out into the world by creating a 1-2 minute virtual video commercial to be placed in their gmail signature, on their social media or website platforms.
What sets me apart is my 55 years of experience with media in every realm.
I am most proud & excited that I’m able to produce & direct folks to produce a final product whether it be a Podcast, TV show or Commercial that will reap positive results for them..
I got to where I am today through hard work, determination, plan of action, stick-tuitiveness, seeing & knowing the end results..
Was it easy? Yes & No. This question I could write an entire book!!!
I overcame challenges by seeing the positive impact I am making on peoples lives..
The lessons I’ve learned along the way are integrity,. Always make three deposits before making a withdrawal. My favorite quote is “what does it profit a man to gain the whole world & suffer the loss of his own soul”!
I want people to know that I have a very unique service and I can create a commercial for them that is different then what you may be use to on TV. Because of my experience as a Producer & Director, I am able to spark the imaginations of all that I work with to achieve optimal results, creating curiosity from their prospects & driving business to their brand!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
It’s funny you ask this question because at this moment I’m with my BFF, Petie on a week road trip from Sarasota to Boston. I told Petie yesterday that tomorrow will be Petie day & the sky is the limit. When Petie wakes up I will tell her how grateful I am to have her as my BFF. I will ask her what would you like to do? Most likely we’d go out for a wonderful breakfast. After breakfast we would walk around. Because of our nature we will talk to many people along the way, engaging, laughing, taking many photos & videos & having a blast. There is nothing ordinary about my experience with my BFF. We always have the best adventures! We’d most likely let the day unfold organically & just enjoy being together. We could do a zip line, hot air balloon or just sit on a park bench and engaging in great conversation. There may be a street band or a music act & Petie may start dancing in the street because she is a professional dancer. I may even get up & belt out a song. Did I mention that I’m a professional singer.? We are definitely two woman who know how to sieze the moment & make the best out of life! It’s not where you go, it’s who you’re with!
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?
There are many factors involved with my creative process. It all began when I was a child and encouraged that I could do anything by my Mother & Father. There were a few teachers that noticed my talents as a child/teenager/adult & I was always being shown ways to express myself but here’s the big nugget… I had the attentiveness to always be aware of my surroundings..
