Jump Start Your Joy

Jump Start Your Joy is a podcast by Paula Jenkins, a life coach, project manager, joy enthusiast and podcast consultant living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Inspired by the quote “Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day (Henri Nouwen),” this lively show looks at the inspiration, intention, and action that lead to joy in the every day. The show is a mix of solocasts and interviews with entrepreneurs, rock stars, authors, actors, life coaches and other game changers. Whether choosing joy seems to be an improbably choice, or the most difficult one they’ve ever made, guests share how it has made a difference in their lives, the world, and other peoples lives. As a multi-passionate, Paula’s leverages a deep appreciation of Star Wars, self help books, religious studies, boy bands and 90s movies to create a show that has spunk, humor, and a lot of aha moments along the way.

This week, I’m delighted to have Lara Heacock joining me for the second installment of the Friendpreneur Series. This series focuses on conversations with friends, who are entrepreneurs. Many of the people are friends I’ve met either through the show (and have been on before!) or through contacts in coaching. I’ve found that starting and running a small business is something very new to many of us, who have grown up without examples of people who are entrepreneurs in our day-to-day.

I had the pleasure of meeting Lara in coach training over three years ago in the Courageous Living Coaching Certification program. She’s so full of life and joy and I have loved getting to know her better, and seeing her grow her coaching practice. She’s joining me this week for the Friendpreneur Series to share about her new book - Practical Kindness, and balancing a 9 to 5 job with her coaching. We laugh, we share lots of entrepreneur tips, and I know you’ll love getting to know her.

Lara and I talk about:

  • Bringing kindness and joy to corporate settings and work
  • Recognizing that there will always be fear in pursuing our dreams
  • How to work with fear
  • Holding ourselves accountable for kindness
  • Lara’s experience in writing her new book, Practical Kindness
  • The courage of being imperfect
  • Creating boundaries and having difficult discussions
  • The rise of the gig economy and how it ties in to 9 to 5 jobs
  • Masterminds and the importance of connections as an entrepreneur
  • Tips tricks and tools: finding a mastermind, figuring out what works for you energetically, don’t pick up your phone first thing in the morning when you wake up, and getting in touch with what you need in each moment
