Shecosister Adrienne Enns on the Benefits of Being Authentic

Name: Adrienne Enns Edgar

Chief Joy Curator, May You Know Joy Inc.


What is at the heart of your business?

Empowering people to navigate towards joy through coaching, workshops, retreats and May You Know Joy meditation cards and Seeds of Intention cards.


Why did you join a women’s coworking and wellness community?

My life and my work are much richer for surrounding myself with inspiring women. We seek out and nurture the best in ourselves and the best in each other. That’s a rare and precious environment and one that I’m proud to be part of.


What do you wish to give and/or receive from this community?

I WISH TO LEND MY ENERGY AND THE WISDOM OF MY JOURNEY TO THIS COMMUNITY. When I show up authentically, I always get unexpected gifts. All I can do is stay open.


What does thriving look like for you?

Thriving is living a life full of love and joy and purpose and community. It is living intentionally to create a beautiful life.


Shecosystem’s core values are: openness, community, collaboration, accessibility, sustainability, feminism, and wellness. Which of these resonates most with you and why?

That’s a tough choice. But, if I have to pick one it would be ‘OPENNESS’. I think our human tendency is to close, to stay safe, to stay small and to protect ourselves. When we show up in an authentic way and are open to all possibilities, that’s where the magic happens and all of the values Shecosystem stands for are available to us.


Tell us one way you integrate self-care into your working life:

I make time to move my body – whether that’s through yoga or walking my dog. It re-connects me. I feel revitalized. It gets my creative juices flowing and it’s often when I get my best ideas or solve a problem.


What’s your top piece of advice for other women entrepreneurs?

Connect with your own truth and purpose. When you navigate towards your own joy in a clear, mindful and authentic way, all things are possible.


Anything else we should know about you?

I believe that joy is a choice. We are choosing all the time who we will be and what our life will be like. These choices can be toughest and most paramount during our most difficult times. These are defining moments. These are moments where life is giving us a chance to stand in our truth and define our values. Life is happening for you. Open to it and choose what you are going to do with this “one wild and precious life”.
