Let's be Friends!
My name really is Angela Joy, and it is my mission in life to live up to that beautiful name. I am an Occupational Therapist and worked professionally in that field for 15 years, mostly with people across the lifespan who have special needs; I also have a bachelor's degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences which I still feel that I utilize every single stinkin' day. In the fall of 2020 I took a leap of faith and left my traditional day job in the school setting to work from wherever I want (yes, I am most definitely a free spirit), and to pursue my very vivid and wild dreams.
Something that I continue to carry with me from my profession is my ability to reflect, a constant yearning for lifelong learning experiences, and my natural gift to connect and with people and what brings them meaning and purpose for their best quality of life. In the OT world we called it 'Therapeutic Use of Self.'
You may ask how I was able to just up and quit my job. Well, it took a lot of courage and quite honestly, I am still trying to figure it all out! It started with speaking my truth. I admitted to myself and my husband that it was time to step into who I was meant to be, and to go about my life doing what brings me the most joy. Financially I was able to do that because I am in direct sales, simply sharing with others about products that I love and that work for me and my family.
I have an incredibly supportive husband who believes in me more than I believe in myself, and we have a rock-solid relationship. He and my son are my world, and they are the reason why I wake up and dream even bigger than I did when I was asleep. And honey, when you dream as big as I do, you have no choice but to take action to make all the things happen. There is no time for fear, and there is no time for mediocrity. Around here, we shoot for the moon.
I am most definitely on an interesting life journey, and I was always taught "the more the merrier." I shine pretty damn bright most of the time, so get your sunglasses and let's go!
