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.
