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.

And, so many still struggle to find high-level, lasting success in work and life.

SPARKED: Harnessing the Power of Purpose, Passion and Flow
What if the work you did felt like the work you were put on the planet to do? What if it filled you with purpose, was a true-expression of who you are and what you’re capable of, and dropped you consistently into that glorious, blissed-out state of flow? We call this being “Sparked!” And, here’s a horrible truth - the way most people work leaves them feeling the exact opposite. Instead of being Sparked, they plod through each day devoid of purpose, stifled, unmotivated and disengaged. Thing is, that is a choice, not a mandate.
You can choose to be Sparked, and then spark everyone else around you. It begins with discovering your unique “Sparketype™,” the distinct driver of purpose that lets you feel like you’re doing the work you were put on the planet to do. In this powerful presentation, drawing upon a revolutionary “meaningful work archetyping system” - the Sparketypes - developed by Jonathan Fields, every participant will discover their own Sparketype, then learn how to build upon it to craft a working life that, maybe for the first time ever, makes them come alive.
May these brave pioneers inspire you.
