Jonathan Fields' latest venture reminds one of that famous quote by Steve Jobs,  "Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you, and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use." Jonathan has taken this to heart, as evidence by The Good Life Project. It is a movement that is helping transform people into entrepreneurs, but it is more than that. It describes a mindset and a willingness to be 100% proactive in every facet of your personal life. That means being able to take 100% equity in all your successes and all of your failures. The Good Life Project is simply helping to develop people into the movers and shakers of their own lives, but there is no better person to learn about this from than the man himself, so make sure to tune in!
