Meet Megan Joy of Find Your Joy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Megan Joy.

Megan, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I am, what I like to call, a positivity producer and a mindset coach. I help both women and men around the world awaken their spirit into self-love with experiential events and conscious content. I truly consider my title as Positivity Producer to mean “someone who creates positive experiences for others”.

Let’s see how *briefly* I can manage this!.. After extensive acting training in theatre from age 7, I decided to switch my focus to film my Sophomore year of college. That did not stop me from studying acting abroad in London though. College credit to see plays?! Yes, please. College in the Eugene, Oregon was not the ideal location to break into the film industry, so I would drive to Portland & Seattle to pursue auditions, jobs, and agents. I landed my first professional role in The Day My Parents Became Cool, which won Best Comedy at the Hollywood International Family Film Festival. And so began my journey into female empowerment… within film, within humans and finally, within myself.

I double-majored in Theatre Arts and Communication Disorders & Sciences and jammed back home to California. My passion for most of my life has been SUPPORTING OTHERS. My expression of that was creating content with a purpose. Female empowerment and assisting young women on their path as a creative, expressive and capable individuals is that purpose. That catapulted when I supported in producing Maroon 5’s music video “Girl Like You” which embodies just that. Showcasing celebrities beside activists & women of all ages to support one another.

After a personal awakening and becoming, I professionally began to focus my producing in the wellness industries. Merging my love of media & mindfulness. I began supporting the LA-based mindfulness meditation Non-profit, InsightLA, founded by the world’s leader in MSBR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction), Jon Kabat-Zinn. I also began producing my own mindful media. At the end of 2019, this culminated in filming my self-love talk-show “Find Your Joy”, which was a whole self-love journey in and of itself! My goal? To be a beacon and inspiration of truth and love for others. We are beginning to revolutionize not only how we can heal (in community), but also how we can relate to one another (and ourselves) in order to live our lives joyFULLY. I celebrate continually stepping into the best version of myself while supporting companies likes Actually Curious and Modern Om to do the same. I am blessed to be leading others with a toolkit that we get to forever expand upon. 

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I suppose they could have been, but I had a story that read “nothing worthwhile is easy.” And so, ease of any kind felt wrong, off-course. My own self-blocks and self-worth conversations on my journey into self-love and acceptance were hurdles to say the least! Filming my personal passion project, my self-love talk-show “Find Your Joy” was the peak of my breakthroughs thus far. It was so difficult getting to that point, but when it arrived we were in flow-state the entire time. Blissful ease, support, community and creation came together. In the show, we get to sift through our very personal sh*t in hopes our f*ck-ups can provide a younger generation guidance to grow gracefully and strong with the ability to… *wait for it* Find their Joy!

My personal foray into creating killer content was when I produced, wrote and starred in the female empowerment film, Shevenge, directed by Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Amber Benson. I had always been ambitious, both personally and professionally, but I also struggled with anxiety, escapism, and most unfortunately, a lack of self-worth. The crazy part was that I was not really cognizant of it, or maybe I was pretending not to know.

After a traumatizing breakup, dating horrors, and feeling stuck in the entertainment industry professionally, I decided I’d had enough! #30. I had spent the better part of my life finding solace in anything but myself and I was OVER IT. I was in the passenger seat of my own life. I realized I had a career in acting because it was the only place I felt safe to show my emotions. Who even was the authentic Megan? And what did SHE want? I started prioritizing getting to know myself. And that’s when I, eventually, allowed ease to creep in. What if all of your dreams were easy?! Could be easy? How would that change how you allow yourself to go through life? Flow through life, perhaps.

Personally, I focused on my health and created habits to allow myself to become my own soul mate. I began training with top leaders in the transformational and mindfulness fields. Neurology and psychology blended to create the Science of Positivity that I now teach and create from. I read every relevant book and tested every method under the sun to become the most authentic version of myself I had ever been and I LET HER OUT TO PLAY! From those years of self-discovery, I learned how to consciously create positivity, productivity and presence each moment of my life. It has taken years to take back the throne of my mind & develop practices that truly work, and in the process, I discovered my purpose, to share them with YOU! After learning and experimenting with new habits and systems, I now help ambitious professionals optimize their time, energy, and relationships as they makeover their mindset! Powerfully stepping into my potential so others can too.

As humans, we craft love from heartbreak, compassion from shame, grace from disappointment, and courage from failure. Without the dark, there cannot be light. Your story is your home, your truth is your story. So, what was I choosing to write? What are you writing? My mother offered me an opportunity into healing and knowledge, and I jumped to overcome the blocks stopping me from sitting in the driver’s seat of my life to become the warrior of my life story. We, the brave and broken hearted are built to battle through the darkness and find ourselves again. And that’s just what I did.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I have created a roadmap for others to heal what’s been holding them back, all while cultivating balance, self-love, and most importantly JOY! The self-love talk-show “Find Your Joy” (currently in post-production and seeking partners) has grown into its own business that provides online workshops and digital offerings. 

Our digital offerings were personally curated from my years of study under top leaders in the fields of mindfulness, transformation, psychology and spirituality. We create spaces where men & women around the world have the ability to feel seen, accepted and belonging. We have just begun to tap into teaching & connecting a whole generation, a whole world, digitally. More and more will learn how to use and implement these FREE healing modalities, backed by science and available to us all without big pharma. Mindfulness is just ONE! I hold a unique space online and in person that integrates all of these healing modalities, ancient and current, into an experience that practices creating joy, mindfully & accessibly. These spaces encompass a unique mixture of energy work, yogic breath-work, somatic movement, mindfulness, meditation, exaltation and play! We can get real cathartic to say the least.

What sets us apart is that we innovate experiential exercises that are physical metaphors for mental blockages & breakthroughs. Using the mind-body connection to provide holistic healing. We all learn differently and we all heal differently! At Find Your Joy, we also consult with other wellness companies, supporting them in creating their own workshops, programs and curriculum to build empathy and joy within their own companies as well as out in the world.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
Luck is when preparation meets opportunity. Good luck or bad luck, I see both as positive. Bad luck is a lesson and Good luck is a nod from the universe that I’m on the right path. Filming my show was total “luck”. It was not panning out how I had envisioned. I could not schedule the celebrity guests the day I had the studio. As I created a “by when”. This one weekend, I was going to film something! Worst case scenario, it’s a beautiful moment with talented friends where we get to play and film who-knows-what. But my preparation met this opportunity I created and luck reigned! The friends, colleagues and clients I had on my show shared the female experience with a level of vulnerability I had never seen before. Stories and truth I would have never received from celebrity guests. Now, I have a product that could potentially change lives. It has already changed mine. My bad luck has always been my gold all along.
