Jump Start Your Joy

By Paula Jenkins

Jump Start Your Joy is an exploration what happens when people choose joy in their lives, in both good and bad times. Host Paula Jenkins 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.
