Jump Start Your Joy

Jump Start Your Joy is a podcast by Paula Jenkins, a transformative life coach, retreat leader, and speaker living in the San Francisco Bay Area. The show focuses on the many ways that people follow their dreams, and look for joy in their every day lives. Paula hand picks guests with inspirational stories; people who have intentionally and mindfully decided to follow a path that brings them joy. We talk about how adversity can bring out one's strengths, how acceptance precedes growth, and how curiosity about one's life and the world around them often leads to finding one's greatest joys. A mix of humor, life coaching, and genuine love of people lead to the quirky and fun style of this podcast.

It's such a pleasure to have Laura Simms join the show this week! Laura is a career Coach and an expert in meaningful work, and she's the creator of the truly amazing "Your Career Homecoming" program that helps women find work that feels like home. I really love Laura's open and easy going nature, and getting to chat with her felt like talking to a friend. She's relatable, down to earth, and the fact that she has changed careers from one that she was truly passionate about (acting), to one that feels more purposeful and rewarding (career coach), really spoke to me. I have an knack for landing plenty of jobs, and love that she helps clients focus on "the why" (the purpose, legacy, contribution, service, impact they're making) before they ever get to thinking about "the what" (abilities, strengths, things you can do), or "the how" (environment, the work pace, your leadership role, how much you're paid) of what that career looks like.

Today's Cris Guillebeau joins the show to talk about discovering the work you were born to do, which is the focus of his brand new book, Born For This. Chris is the creator of the World Domination Summit, author of The $100 Start Up, The Art of Non-Conformity, and The Happiness Pursuit. He's traveled to 193 countries using travel hacking. I'm super excited to bring him on to speak about his new book, Born for This, and to talk about how joy has played a part in his journey, plus get his input on how to bring your dream into action AND ways to jump start your joy.
