Good Life Project TV Goes Live [with a secret mission]

It’s alive! It’s ALIVE!!! Good Life Project™ TV launches today!!!

And it’s launching with an incredible first episode, featuring world-renowned psychologist, behavioral economist and NY Times bestselling author, Dan Ariely.

For the last three months, I’ve been secretly traveling around with a film crew shooting in-depth, Charlie Rose style interviews on location with some amazing people. Folks from all walks of life, from world-renowned scientists and artists to breakout entrepreneurs and movement-catalysts.

In the show, we go narrow and deep with people who are living aligned, empowered, juicy lives and also tapping the wisdom of some of the leading mindset, psychology and neuroscience experts in the world.

But, there’s something else going on with Good Life Project TV. A deeper mission. And it’s about…WOMEN!

I am strongly committed to sharing the stories of women. You see, I’ve realized something. My daughter is growing up in a household fueled by entrepreneurship and creativity, she’s exposed to it every day. But I also want her to be able to see and learn from the stories of mission-driven women creating great businesses, bodies of work and movements. And, mainstream media is doing a pretty bad job of telling those stories. In fact, it’s largely one big dude-fest!

So, I decided to take on the challenge myself…

If larger media outlets aren’t telling the stories of amazing women, I will. Which is why one of the core values of GLP TV is a deep commitment to sharing the stories of and spotlighting strong, innovative, creative women. On this show, women get equal, if not more, time than men (production note – because we need to accomodate guests’ schedules and our own production timeline, you may see back-to-back episodes of either men or women, but over time, there will always be an equal if not more women-focused balance).

So, today’s the big day! We’re launching the new GLP website and Web TV show!

The first episode features famed psychologist, behavioral-economist and bestselling author of Predictably Irrational and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty, Dan Ariely. It’s an incredibly powerful episode. You’ll learn how a horrific accident burned 70% of his body in his late teens, how that incident led to a voracious curiosity about how we behave in the world that then led to a stunning career. And so much more. Dan is humble, kind, downright brilliant and a fabulous storyteller.

Go check it out at Watch. Smile. Learn. Enjoy.

And if you’re inspired, I’d be incredibly grateful if you shared it with your tribes. There is great value beyond entertainment in each episode. And it’s been a massive labor of love for me. Help me share that value with the world.

Love & gratitude!

    Congratulations for finally getting this live. I know you’ve been crushing it behind the scenes to get this show ready for public debut… and I’ve got to say… It turned out great.

    Jonathan, I just took the forty minutes out of my day and focused on this. It was excellent. I’m reminded of so many great researcher/writers in the content of Dan Ariely’s conversation with you. But in this case, the personal crushing pain that was the actual breeding ground for his thought process is almost incomprehensible and gives a humanity to it that’s hard to describe. This is a super debut. FYI, I tried to subscribe to the Good Life Project but there was a problem with the Aweber connection – it told me that I had put in an invalid email address when I had only clicked on the GLP screen to get the opt-in form.

    About the choice of women as the context for your project, well, thank you. There are so many women out here in the world with complex stories that meld experience, strength, tenacity, humanity and love (not to mention creativity and patience) that should be told.

    I will be putting this up on my blog as a post (the Ariely interview) and hoping to spread the word about your new work. I’m continuously amazed by your growth and innovation, how you take your experiences, share them and build on them. It’s so admirable.

    Thank you.

    Thank you so much for your work.

    I’m elated that you’ve made the commitment to the extraordinary women.

    I follow the blogs of men like Derek Sivers, Ramit Sethi, Tim Ferriss, and of course you. I’ve noticed a strong stoic basis in the writing. It works, there is much to glean. But it doesn’t always resonate with me as a woman. Even though I’m excited about the information and I want to share it with my girlfriends, it doesn’t usually take. I think it is because its a hard style – yang as apposed to the intuitive – yin that women bring to business. I also think there is a particular balance that women have to strike in their lives in order to sustain both their nurturing selves and business edge. That simply isn’t on the radar of most businessmen. So I went on a search to find women that inspired me in the same way that my top four men have. Given your following I am very excited you will be shining some light on the bright beautiful women game changers who are shaping the way our little girls will see themselves and their position in society. Rock on!

    I love the work of Brene Brown, Sally Hogshead, Danielle LaPort and Nancy Duarte. To me, each bring a flare for the balance to life that I as a woman seek to emulate in my own authentic way. They show me that it is possible. But mostly, I get get my most important insights not from someone rich or famous from my 73 year old friend Yvonne; who’s insights on life keep me on my toes, reminding me not to take myself too seriously.

    Thanks again for your work!

    Sincerely, ReneeFrancesConn

    oh, I just listened to your “good life goes live video” whoo-hoo the intersection of science and intuition! emotional contagion and Pygmalion effect. I feel so inspired! I really, really needed this right now. Wow! Thanks.

  5. Erick Widman says:

    I think it’s fantastic that you are specifically aiming to help women with this project. I’m almost finished with Kristof and WuDunn’s “Half the Sky” book which describes compelling reasons why helping women and girls is the biggest challenge of the 21st century. I’m looking forward to watching your videos.

  6. Fabulous and fantastic. THANK YOU for being on mission to bring consciousness to the world. Way to go!

    Congratulations on the idea, and the execution, to bring these out into the world. Incredibly powerful first video. Excited to see which strong, creative and innovative women you will highlight!
