Reclaim your superpowers

and leave your mark on the world.

Your work is not your career

But what your create.

“Thanks to Joy, I was able to unpackage my thoughts and frame them as action steps.”

– Shella Fon

If you are feeling stuck and unfulfilled in your job, you might feel conflicted about making big changes or taking a risk. We have heard statements like “don’t rock the boat” and to “keep your head down” so often that they sometimes sound like wisdom.

I’m here to show you that what you create makes you incomparable. It’s the key to joy and fulfillment. It’s the opposite of feeling disengaged, stuck and unexpressed. It will leave you feeling purposeful, powerful and satisfied.

And it’s the key to leaving behind a legacy that you’re proud of.

And what’s more amazing about this revelation is you already have everything you need right here, right now, to create. It’s all the talents, gifts and strengths within you.

You don’t need a job to have it. You don’t need a career to have it. You don’t need anybody’s permission to create with these superpowers of yours. And you don’t even have to quit your job to start doing it!

“Incredible job today! It was practical and applicable. Whether we have “more time” or we have “less time”, the same principle applies! Thanks to that moment years ago when you decided you would pivot from what you were doing to pursue this path! It’s clear you are walking in your purpose and using your creative genius and gifts to serve others ! ❤️❤️❤️”

Are You Ready To Finally Get Clarity On Your Unique Contribution?

I'm Joy Spencer,

your expert
fellow traveler

I started my career in the non-profit sector fighting for social justice causes, thinking a meaningful job was the recipe for a meaningful life. But even with important and meaningful work, years into my career I started to feel stuck and unsatisfied, and I began to dread Monday mornings.

I knew something had to change. I didn’t know what, but I was determined to be one of those people who LOVE their work so much it doesn’t even feel like work. So I left my job and started CREATING.

While I was carving my own creative path, I worked with the World Bank to conduct a two-year study on attracting investment by the diaspora of Sierra Leone, and I developed a workshop in collaborating effectively. I delivered that to dozens of social impact groups.

That workshop — my own Signature Creation — led to some amazing opportunities to get paid to do what I love. Now I train executives at one of the largest credit unions in North America to define their leadership through effective storytelling.

Your Signature Creation tells the story of who you are and what you’re here to do. As you bring forth your creation, I can help you craft and tell a story that makes your unique contribution to the world stand out, attracting new and better opportunities.

Whether you worked with me or not to develop your Signature Creation, working on your story right now is one of the most powerful things you can do to clarify your unique contribution and legacy.

The need to tell stories is in our DNA. Having a unique and compelling personal narrative cuts through resistance and hits us where it matters most, right in the heart, compelling us to act.

Each leader I have helped to develop their leadership story has gone on to be;
More visible within their organization.
Recognized as an authority in their unique areas of interest.
More effective in communicating their values and message.

And I’m loving every minute of it!

I want to spark a revolution in how we imagine our work, so that everyone can carve out a place for themselves based on our own innate skills, values and interests, just like I have.

I hope you’ll join me in this adventure!

What I was looking for was very practical: a new full-time job with benefits. What I got was so much more. Joy’s suggestion, to reframe my search so that I could “be paid to do what I wanted to do, not what they wanted me to do” was a refreshing and freeing perspective that I hadn’t had before. It was out-of-the-box thinking that helped me land where I am now — in a new job, a new career, finally receiving financial compensation for all the things that I bring to the table. It’s validating and empowering! I’m creating many things with my gifts, including new content, graphic design, event planning, and I’m building bridges, and connecting people to one another. I’m truly in the best place I’ve been in my life both personally and professionally.
