Jonathan Fields asks the question: How are you feeling about the mysteries in your life?

On Friday, January 6th at Warehouse 242, hundreds of creative Charlotteans gathered together for our first meeting of 2017 – featuring none other than celebrated author, thought leader and Good Life Project founder, Jonathan Fields. Jonathan kicked off our new year with a powerful talk on our global theme of “Mystery” and helped us unpack why some of the mysteries of our lives are exhilarating while others are terrifying. One important word surfaced at the heart of his theory: stakes. AND…CreativeMornings founder Tina Roth-Eisenberg delighted the Charlotte chapter with a surprise visit!

About the speaker

A dad, husband, serial entrepreneur, growth strategist and award-winning author, Jonathan Fields inspires possibility.

He currently runs mission-driven media and education venture, Good Life Project®, where he and his team lead a global community in the quest to live more meaningful, connected and vital lives. They produce a top-rated podcast and video-series with millions of listens and views in more than 150 countries, where Jonathan regularly shares conversations with the world’s leading voices, like Sir Ken Robinson, Elizabeth Gilbert, Milton Glaser, Brene Brown, Gretchen Rubin and hundreds more.

Along the way, Jonathan has built a number of community-driven ventures or, as he calls them, Businesses of Belonging™, taught everything from yoga and mindfulness to entrepreneurship, branding and innovation to thousands. Along with his world-class faculty, he now offers a growing catalog of events, trainings and courses that range from mission-driven entrepreneurship to building innovative cultures and living good lives. He begins with cracking open the often long-closed window to possibility, then offers strategies and tools for action and progress.

His most recent book, How to Live a Good Life: Soulful Stories, Surprising Science and Practical Wisdom, is a wake-up call and a path to possibility, complete with 30-days of inspiring, actionable explorations. It’s not just a book to be read, it’s gateway to a better life, to be lived.

Jonathan is regularly featured in the media, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, FastCompany, Inc., Entrepreneur, USA Today, Real Simple, HOW, O Magazine, Self, Outside, Slate, Vogue, Elle, Allure, SELF, Yoga Journal, CNBC, Fox News, Today Show, PBS Nightly Business Report and thousands of other places that sound cool, but don’t impress his daughter all that much.

He also speaks globally for organizations and events of all sizes, from keynoting private meetings for clients like Paypal, GE, Novartis and twitter to taking the stage at mega-events like SXSW, World Domination Summit and many others.

When not building ventures, writing and producing, he can be found dancing around his living room with his wife and daughter, writing in the third person and listening to “real music.” #AirSupply. #KissFanClub.

For us to do great work in the world, for us to create on the level where it matters—and if there are no stakes it does not matter—so there have to be stakes because we want to create something that matters. — Jonathan Fields
