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.

This week, I’m really thrilled to have Helen McLaughin on the show. She’s a curiosity coach, and in the last two years she’s gone from having a 9 to 5 job as an executive assistant to being a coach, getting married, and living full time on the road. I wanted to talk to her about what it’s like, finding a foundation while living a life that is constantly in motion. I know you’ll love hearing her answer!

In this episode we talk about:
- Helen’s love of creating and making books as “places for stories to live” as a little girl
- How growing up as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) meant she found joys in places that were safe and comfortable for her, with her family
- How she shed the worry of doing everything right, by “reframing it all as an experiment”
- Curiosity as a foundation for life and work
- Traveling for her husband’s work, and living on the road in an RV
- Writing as a foundation and touchstone each week, no matter where she is
- How her business (and mine) felt natural, as we both followed what felt natural and fun
- How having a weekly newsletter has been grounding, week to week
- That creating, connecting, and moving each day supports harmony
