About Who Are the Joneses Anyway?
At one time or another, most of us have heard the expression “keeping up with the Joneses”, referring to a legendary family that has the world trying to keep up with them. They’re mentioned in tweets, movies, newscasts, articles, blogs, books, and more. They’re mysterious. They seem to be everywhere, but no one appears to have actually met them. Why is that?
You have likely heard of them, too, but have you met the Joneses? We have, and we would like to introduce them to you. We think you’ll be just as surprised as we were by who they are.
Too often we measure success by our accomplishments or the stuff we have accumulated. But life should be about so much more, like discovering who you are, why you are here, and the legacy you create.
Think of the possibilities if you started living your life more intentionally, doing more of the things that matter most, and less of everything else. Could life be less hectic? What if you spent more time doing things today that could lead to a better tomorrow, instead of just trying to survive each day? What if you could live more simply, yet more fully?

The real-life approach and practical resources will help you get from where you are to where you want your life to be as you begin thinking less about your “what” and more about your “who.”
