How to Live a Good Life with Jonathan Fields


I’ve been really looking forward to sharing this episode on The School of Greatness with you for months.

I recorded it back in July when Jonathan Fields and I were both speaking at World Domination Summit in Portland, OR.

But our friendship goes way back.

Jonathan is one of the first real friends and mentors I made when I was getting into blogging and online business back in the day.

He’s been the trusted confidant I’ve turned to several times for business and personal advice through the years.

And you may recognize his voice from Episode 61, when he facilitated me opening up about my childhood trauma.

Beyond all of that, Jonathan is a brilliant author, entrepreneur, coach, and family man who knows a thing or two about living a good life.

So I’m excited to dive into what actually makes up a good life in Episode 394 with Jonathan Fields.
