Want to accelerate your business and amplify your joy?
The Joy|Money Matrix is a mental model (basically an XY axis) that requires you to categorize everything in your life according to JOY and REVENUE.
For those seasoned entrepreneurs who want to know more about engaging with the Joy|Money Matrix process, I made a video for you. It introduces you to the JMM and shows you how you might apply its principles to your own business. By the end, you'll know whether or not the Joy|Money Matrix is right for you.
The JMM is Simple.
The Joy|Money Matrix is a simple and elegant mental model that helps creative entrepreneurs make better decisions about their lives and businesses. With customized sticky notes!
It asks you to pay attention to what brings you joy and to what brings you revenue.
That way, those of you who like to combine heart and head (or logic and intuition) can have a two piece framework that speaks both to the tangible and to the ephemeral.
The JMM is Profound
The JMM will show you visually what changes you can make in your business and life. It will show you where you're procrastinating, what you can delegate, what products and services to focus on and which social media to chuck.
It will also let you know what relationships don't serve you, why you don't always get the results you want, and what you can do to allow things to just flow.
the JMM is Reusable
This is a product that I want you to use the heck out of! We all have some programs/products sitting around on our computers that we've barely touched. I created the JMM to be something that you come back to again and again and again.
Some people are using it for monthly or quarterly planning. Others refer to it (no joke) every single day. The point is, let this be a tool that supports your highest good, that supports your phenomenal creative energies, that supports your most massive action and biggest revenue yet.
The JMM IS FUN
The Joy|Money Matrix is a good time! I encourage you to make the process as retreat-like as possible and happen to think the videos are occasionally humorous.
Further, it doesn't take forever to complete and it's not difficult to start implementing your insights immediately- even the same day!
So, what exactly IS it?
The JMM is at its essence a tool for consistent decision-making. It helps creative entrepreneurs make strategic decisions by taking into account both joy and revenue.
You can experience the JMM in two ways:
- Hire a Certified Facilitator to work with you 1:1 or in a small group (starts around $2000).
- Purchase the JMM Box and Online Workshop to experience a similar process by DIYing it using the online modules and materials you receive in the box ($495- payment plans available).
A note about your Joy|Money Matrix process:
You'll receive access to the online workshop as soon as you pay for your JMM Box- instant gratification!
Then, it will take me a few days to assemble your box (each one gets special love and some unique surprise goodies).
When you receive your box, you'll be ready to rock and roll with your Joy|Money Matrix experience. The modules include the basics of making your matrix, but the real juice comes from the process of assessing your matrix. To do that I've included helpful diagrams to make finding alignment easier, journaling questions to spark your noggin, and action prompts so that you take all that you learn from your matrix and actually do something with it!
In all, it's a 5 part process that could take anywhere from an afternoon to two days. We all go at a different pace, but I recommend making it as retreat-like as possible, hence the box of goodies!
Collectively, the JMM box itself comprises all of the supplies you need so that you get the most out of your JMM process. I made it into a box so that I could minimize the friction you might face in completing your JMM and getting the most out of your investment that you can can.
The process is golden- but you have to show up for it and be prepared. So this box equips you with everything you will need- and then some- to feel as if you were having your own individual retreat-like experience, in the comfort of your own home.
Here's what you get when you order the Joy|Money Matrix Box
- Immediate lifetime access to the online workshop. You could theoretically begin immediately, but there are Reasons you might want to wait for your box. Namely...
- A box. Jam-packed with goodies just for you.
- A binder full of all the pdfs in the workshop, journaling pages, and transcripts of all videos (except the meditation vid for obvious reasons). All printed in full color on premium paper that's made from some post-consumer waste!
- A JMM 18x24 poster for making your matrix.
- Customized sticky notes that make the JMM process colorful, fun and annoyance-free. You'll receive enough stickies to do the JMM several times.
- An erasable pen and erasable marker (thank you to JMM Certified Facilitator Shannon Hernandez for turning me on to these!)
- A fun t-shirt (be sure to lmk your sizing during check out).
- An inspirational piece of art to celebrate your creativity and action.
- Treats that shall remain surprises but are, rest assured, joyful :)
- Check out the video below to see what the box looks like!
Here are how some business owners are using this tool to create more joy and more money:
Content Marketing Strategy- Use the JMM process to assess your content by where it falls on your matrix. Discover untapped sources of content as well as those mediums that no longer serve you and your goals.
Lifestyle Design- Long to take more trips, finally start meditating, or want to prioritize your self-care? The JMM can show you exactly what activities will maximize your joy while still prioritizing the sustainability of your business.
Product/Services Mix- Have you been hanging on to a product, service or target market for too long? The JMM can shed light on those products and services that are business bright spots and which are dragging you down. N.B. This portion often surprises biz owners.
Growing a Team/Delegation- The Joy|Money Matrix is one of the best tools for building the right team that I can think of. In clear colored stickies, you'll see exactly what elements of your business you'd better delegate and at what point that becomes possible from a cash flow perspective.
Now for some details:
- Some people do these processes very quickly while others take more time. I recommend an afternoon to a full day once you have prepared your materials.
- Some of my Certified Facilitators use two full days with their clients: the first day to complete the Matrix and the second to assess and then to create a plan of action.
- The course is video, with audio files and transcripts for download. I think it's great fun to work along with the video but it's not a requirement if that's not the best way for you to learn.
- When you purchase the workshop, it's yours to use forever. Please be mindful that it's for your use only. If you would like to share it with clients or friends, they must also purchase a workshop and/or you must become a JMM Certified Facilitator.
