Have you ever seen another expert in your field and thought, “THAT’s what I want to do!“?
Well, that person for me is Jonathan Fields.
Jonathan used to teach business and marketing advice to his community, but now he’s a leader in helping people create meaningful, connected, and happy lives.
But it gets even better.
This guy is truly a Jack of All Trades. He’s an award-winning author, founder of Good Life Project, and the creator of an incredible adult summer camp (I know, I know, I want to go, too!).
But he didn’t start that way.
In fact, his career began as a corporate attorney.
Then he decided to shift everything and open a wellness center.
Then he created a yoga studio in New York City.
And ultimately built the personal development brand he has today.
Such an interesting trajectory, right? In this interview, Jonathan shares how he moved past fear as he created each new business, how he creates a work/life “blend,” and the 3 most important factors in having a great life.
Check out the episode below:
In this episode, you’ll hear about things like…
- Jonathan’s former career at a prestigious law firm, where a serious wake-up call shifted his direction in life, towards what he truly wanted.
- Jonathan’s core set of questions and metrics to consider when making a life change – and why it doesn’t have to be complicated.
- Why he doesn’t really like the word “balance” (and the concept he uses instead).
- The three areas of your life that determine whether or not you’ll have a fulfilled, happy life (including some of Jonathan’s favorite activities to keep you at your best).
- How Jonathan and his wife are able to cultivate a vulnerable, creative community through Camp GLP – and his favorite story about one of the participants.
