There are a zillion self-help books out there but how many can you say deeply impacted some aspect of your life? I may read more of this genre than the average person but much of the time I experience repeating themes that all seem to run together in my mind.

That’s one of the many reasons I’m so excited to share today’s, Hello Freedom interview with my buddy Jonathan Fields!

Last week, Jonathan’s new book, How to Live a Good Life came out and I can hJonathan Fields on Hello Freedom with Terri Coleonestly say it is one of those rare and impactful self-help experiences that stays with you long after you’ve turned the last page. Many of you are familiar with Jonathan’s work because of his incredible podcast, the Good Life Project, and his earlier well known video series, Good Life Project where he asked twenty nine influencers in wellness and business what constitutes a “good life?”

I love that Jonathan is not only smart and successful, but also highly relatable. When I asked him why this book, why now, he talked about how many people are living their lives feeling disconnected, feeling unwell, feeling regret. This book is a resource for those people who haven’t found help that resonates – for those who haven’t found someone they can trust. This book is filled with tools and strategies from all of Jonathan’s work, interviews, personal lessons, and aha moments. It’s a modern day manual for the pursuit of a life well lived.

I think you’ll enjoy this deep dive with my wise, soulful pal. Listen now to hear all about it plus much more!
