You probably graduated school with big dreams and expectations — you were going places! Most likely, you found a job that was good enough. If you were lucky, you landed the dream job. It was all happy hours, gold stars, pleasing your boss/clients/parents, and defining yourself by your job (or lack of!).
But suddenly it hit you — The real world? It’s not all it’s cracked up to be. You come to the alarming realization that “this” is not where you thought you’d be. “This” sucks. “This” makes you cringe when the alarm goes off in the morning.
You feel stuck, not able to live your dreams because of your current reality. Or maybe you feel lost, having forgotten your dreams all together. Perhaps you’re not sure what the **** you’re supposed to do next, disappointed that your day-to-day isn’t living up to all your expectations, overwhelmed by the millions of possibilities out there, or just feel totally unlike your awesome self.
Welcome to the Quarterlife Crisis.
I get it because I was there 4 years ago. I was there, drinking wine, bitching, moping, feeling like a failure, and finally, finally doing something about it.
Being rather dramatic, I sold everything I owned and set off with my boyfriend and backpack to travel around the world for a year. I filled 3 journals, ate a ridiculous amount of street food, learned how to meditate, reconnected with the part of myself that loved to teach/inspire/lead and committed to helping savvy 20 and 30 somethings conquer their Quarterlife Crisis.
I get that this is probably not YOUR path. I’m a natural nomad, so for me, it was useful and exhilarating. But world travel is hard, quitting your job without any back up is scary, and convincing your friends and parents that you’re not crazy takes some time.
The cool part? The “personal work” I did while I traveled, the process of thinking and writing about your life in a fresh new way can be done anywhere, at any time. With the right questions, exercises, support- you can reconnect with who you are, what you want, and how to get there.
As long as you’re ready to invest the time, you can gain clarity. Forward movement. Trust in yourself and your capability. Joy.
I created The Joy Equation for YOU. Perhaps it’s time to dive in and make your life count, cupcake!
THE QUARTERLIFE CRISIS
Fact: The Quarterlife Crisis is a real experience of women in their twenties and early thirties. It doesn’t make you any less capable, savvy, sexy or sane. Stop thinking you’re ungrateful or selfish or crazy.
Fact: You are not alone. The Quarterlife Crisis is a Rite of Passage for Gen Y. Embrace it ‘cause we’re all going through it. Use it to grow and learn and laugh hysterically as you make ends meet by dressing up like a Cheddar Cheese Loaf while pursuing your painting or work at Starbucks with your Masters degree in Women’s Studies or live at your parent’s house at the age of 25. It’s okay. You are not alone. And nothing is permanent.
The Joy Equation Course will help you conquer your Quarterlife Crisis and gain some clarity about who you are/what you want. The online, email based course offers you the tools and guidance to identify success on your own terms and start making the big dreams reality by following the four parts of Stratejoy’s Joy Equation:
CONNECT WITH YOURSELF
CULTIVATE POWERFUL HABITS
COMMIT TO YOUR HAPPINESS
WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR: Gutsy girls feeling the sting of the Quarterlife Crisis*. 20 and 30 somethings who are ready for some reflection and inspiration to reclaim their life because, well, this is it. This is your life.
Are you living yours? Are you showing up and claiming your right to an authentically joyful life on your terms? Are you kicking butt and taking names and eating peaches? Why the hell not?
WHO THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR: Those who are not ready for some intense personal exploration or who are just looking for a quick fix. You get out what you put in. Make sure it’s worth it to you…
*Not struggling with a QLC, but interested in joyful living or breaking out of a personal funk? In the middle of a big transition and need to “reset” to your authentic self? This course will work perfectly!
THE JOY EQUATION COURSE
Want to hear the introduction so you know what you’re getting into? Listen up!
The Joy Equation offers you the strategies, tools and guidance to explore yourself and your life by defining success on your own terms. Key words: On Your Own Terms. I’m not here to sell you my vision of success, because chances are, it’s radically different than yours.
The Joy Equation is made up of four essential components:
- Your 40 page Joy Plan Workbook, an inspirational action guide that will hold all of your questions, activities and insights.
- 30 days of inspirational journal prompts delivered through email, to expand on each weekly theme.
- Four 90 minute audio sessions via a private web page, explaining your Joy Plan and guiding you through each week’s session in your workbook.
- Weekly Challenges and Immersion Activities to really deepen your understanding of each Joy Equation concept.
The Joy Plan is a bound 40-page downloadable workbook ready to be filled out with your answers, brainstorms, artwork, personal explorations and notes. It’s what you will sit down with each week to complete your audio session.
The Joy Plan will serve as your record of all the contemplation and insights from our month together. You’ll use it to explore each of the four parts of the Joy Equation as the 30 days progress and keep track of your ideas as you develop your plan for authentic joy.
Within 24 hours of registration, you can expect your first inspiring journal prompt. Each day you’ll be emailed a new journal prompt to write about that will help you expand on the weekly theme from the audio session. Journaling is an investment in YOU and in this course. If you don’t like to journal, suck it up for 30 days. It’s good for you.
After a week of warm-you-up emailed journal prompts, you’ll receive a link in your email to a private site that contains the first audio session. There will be one new audio session for each week of the course, for a total of four. Each of the four sessions concentrates on one part of the Joy Equation. The audio sessions are designed to be interactive guides to your Joy Plan — you’ll hear me explain each activity and writing assignment and give you time to complete it right then and there. The sessions are my chance to share my knowledge, support you through this process, and call you names like cupcake and sugar pop.
The Audio Sessions are the heart of the course and where the most insight normally occurs!
At the end of each Audio Session, I’ll go over a challenge and immersion activity for you to complete in the next week. These range from artwork, to spending time on you, to trying something completely new. I realize everyone has busy, busy lives — so these activities are optional, but most women taking the course find them a nice addition to all the writing we do!
MY COMMITMENT TO YOU
I want you to know that I’m here for you through the entire course, as well as afterward, when you begin to navigate your vision of success. I’m here to help you if you get stuck. I want to hear your success stories. I want to help you celebrate when you start kicking butt and taking names on your own terms!
I guarantee that you’ll learn something incredible about yourself and your dreams from The Joy Equation. Many, many cool chicks have taken this course and each one of them walks away with new insights.
And the cool part? They start doing something about it!
This is where it gets a little interesting… I want each and every one of you to conquer your Quarterlife Crisis or personal Life Transition. I want each and every one of you savvy, sassy, gutsy girls to claim your joy. Seriously. It’s been amazing to hear about the forward movement, changes, and clarity that the Joy Equation Course can produce.
I realize that once YOU start believing in yourself and a life you love, YOU will inspire women around you to be bold enough to strive for their own dreams. And really —that’s what this is all about… Starting a movement of women who are dedicated to living and working for authentic happiness. Just thinking about all that honesty and juiciness and courage gives me shivers!
Which brings me to this:
If you are committed to working through this course, I am committed to getting it in your hands. What’s the perfect price? What would you be willing to invest?
That’s up to you.
For the past 4 years, I’ve been selling the Joy Equation Course for $149. It’s been reaching and helping women near and far — almost 39 different countries around the world! But I don’t want the price point to hold ANYONE back.
I am now making this course available for you to purchase based on what you can afford!!
What’s it worth to YOU? What can you contribute that will support your forward movement, as well as Stratejoy’s ability to get this course into the hands of every women who needs it?
So, what’s the right price?
It’s a very personal choice. Make a decision based on what you can afford to invest. Some of you will be able to afford the $149. Awesome. Some of you know that you won’t take the course seriously unless you pay the $149. I get it. Go for it. Some of you are in a spot of transition, or without steady work, or unemployed and will only be able to afford $30 or $70 or $99. That’s totally fine too! There’s no need to be embarrassed about what you can afford. I trust that you’re making the best decision for you.
That said, time has shown that without investing a significant amount of money in the Joy Equation, you’re less likely to finish the course. And that’s the whole point! You get out of this course what you put into it, and that includes your financial investment in yourself. Think about it when you’re tempted to type in $15, okay love? Is that all your happiness is worth to you?
This course, at whatever investment you can afford, is my gift to you. I’d love if you could keep the good karma flowing by sending this page to two of your gal pals. And feel free to grab the badge on the left and share the love. Joy for everyone!
