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.

Hi friends! Welcome to Jump Start Your Joy's Top 10 of Season One. Last week, as part one of the season finale, I shared some of the most memorable moments of the last 52 weeks. This week, I'm sharing the most downloaded episodes, and sharing what made them really special. Many of the guests sent an update on "What joy has looked like for them" since we last spoke. The result is a fun, heartfelt, joyful finale to a year that has been life changing for me.

When you facing any sort of change, whether it be a something you choose (think changing careers, buying a house, etc) or something that happens to you (think losing a job, illness, losing a family member), you rely on "process" to get through the change. And before you glaze over because I'm using the coachy word "process," I encourage you to stick with me here. This stuff is actually pretty interesting! What I'm diving into here is the idea that there are really two types of process, and why it's important to recognize them and harness them to get through a change.

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, Jordana Jaffe, a Facebook group strategist, joins me on the podcast and we chat about the magic of using Facebook groups to create a super comfy, magical business. While Jordana mostly works with women entrepreneurs who are introverts or homebodies on how to create their own super engaged Facebook group and successfully participate in other Facebook groups so that they can grow their online community and get clients while staying at home in their cozy pjs, she has a ton of great info and insights for non-introverts (like myself), too. I loved getting to talk to her about her journey, one that after multiple launches in 2013, led to her feeling disconnected from herself, and wanting to find a way that felt more authentically her in her own business. The result is a business that feels energized, and cozy.
