Jonathan Fields

Dec 7, 2009 Author: Peekay | Filed under: Author

Jonathan Fields describes himself as “a giddy dad, husband, New Yorker, multi-time health & fitness industry entrepreneur, recovering S.E.C./mega-firm hedge-fund lawyer, slightly-warped, unusually-stretchy, spiritually-inclined, obsessed with creation, small-biz and online marketing-catalyst, speaker, direct-response copywriter, entrepreneur-coach, yoga-teacher, columnist, author, once-a-decade hook-rug savant, pro-blogger and career renegade™…gone wild.”

It’s this last bit which has brought Jonathan to global acclaim with his Career Renegade book guiding people who want to redesign their life and work, to focus around the things that they love to do – while still earning.
