  • "Let's face it—the leap of faith required to follow a dream is usually accompanied by gut-wrenching, knee-quaking, soul-shaking fear.

Jonathan Fields

FOUNDER OF THE GOOD LIFE PROJECT

Jonathan Fields is an award-winning author and entrepreneur. For the past several years, he's been on a mission to help individuals and organizations cultivate the personal practices, workflow adaptations and environmental/cultural shifts needed to become more agile, creative and innovative and embrace action in the face of uncertainty with a greater sense of ease.

A former NYC mega-firm/SEC lawyer turned serial-entrepreneur, Fields founded two cutting-edge boutique lifestyle/fitness facilities—Sedona Private Fitness and Sonic Yoga—the latter in the shadow of 9/11 in Hell's Kitchen, NY. He quickly grew both into industry-leading businesses, generating international media-attention and raising the bar for business, marketing and programming trends. He eventually sold both companies to focus on writing, training and speaking...and being a strongly present dad and husband.

Fields now runs media and education venture, GoodLifeProject.com, writes AdAge Power 150 blog JonathanFields.com, contributes to PsychologyToday.com, and consults with individuals and organizations from Fortune 100s to tech-start-ups and local businesses.

His first book, Career Renegade: How to Make a Great Living Doing What You Love, was named a Top 10 Small Business Book by Small Business Trends and a Top 5 Summer Read by MSNBC's Your Business.

Fields' second book, Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel for Brilliance, has generated extraordinary praise from the likes of Zappos' Tony Hseih, Dan Pink, Gretchen Rubin, Steve Pressfield and dozens of other leaders in the worlds of creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership.

Fields is regularly featured as an expert in the media, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, Fast Company, Inc.com, Entrepreneur, USA Today, Reuters, People, CNBC, FoxBusiness, CBS Radio, Vogue, Elle, and more.
