On today’s episode I’m really excited to be speaking with one of my mentors, Jonathan Fields. I asked Jonathan to talk about building engaged communities especially since I’ve been participating in his new conscious business collective, The 108. Watching him in action as he inspires a group of conscious business leaders from around the world inspired me to ask him about the backstory leading up to its creation.
During this conversation Jonathan shares some incredible wisdom with us and gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of The 108 Collective. He also shares more about the evolution of his group programs leading up to his wildly popular annual “summer camp for adults”, Camp GLP.
Prior to starting The Good Life Project, Jonathan built and sold two fitness businesses, one a high end PT facility in New York, the other, one of the largest, if not the largest, yoga teacher training studios (also in New York). In this episode he shares with us:
- How building community has become an essential part of the growth of his business
- What it means to lead a tribe and the spirit he carries behind it
- How to find the right people to be a part of your community
- Why establishing an ethos means so much when creating a community
- The power of having a “Creed”
- Three critical elements needed to ensure your learning community thrives, and much more!
I know you’ll really love this conversation with an incredible, mindful and inspiring person — so make sure you listen and take a moment to share your takeaways in the comments below.
