Welcome! I’m Jonathan Milligan.

My goal here is to encourage and inspire you to fully become who God wants you to be (that includes both life and work).

Have you ever said:

  • “I’m tired of being stuck in a job I really don’t like.”
  • “I dread Mondays and just work for the weekends.”
  • “I want to do work I’m passionate about, but I just don’t think it is possible.”
  • “I want to live a better life, but I have too many bad habits standing in my way.”
  • “I want to be more productive, but I just lack self discipline to make things happen in my life.”
  • “I’d love to work for myself and be location independent, if only I knew how.”

If you have ever had these thoughts, then you are in the right place!

Here’s How JonathanMilligan.com Helps You Get Ahead in Life and Work

I’m here to help you discover your passion.

What is it that you can’t stop doing? What is it that you love to learn about? What is that unique gift or talent that God gave you?

Sometimes we are too close to see it for ourselves. We need the help of other people to see what is awesome about us.

God made you special and there will never be another one just like you. It is possible to discover your passion. Let me show you how.

I’m here to help you create work you love.

Do you see work as a necessary evil? Is the only meaning of work to help pay the bills and live a lifestyle to meet the standards the world has set for you?

I want to show you a different path. Once you discover your passion, it is time to create work you love. We live in an awesome era that allows anyone anywhere to create work they love.

“I just want meaningful, traditional employment.” I’ve spend over a decade helping working professionals find the right fit for them.

“I want to create my own portable, lifestyle business doing work I love.” I’ve spent the last 3 years working on my own terms. Once you discover your passion and get clear on how it can help others, you too can build a lifestyle business and work where and when you want.

I’m here to help you live with greater focus.

We live in a world of distraction. These distractions lead us to a state of confusion. Since we have too many options, we end up doing nothing. The answer lies in getting focused. I’d love to show you how to get your life back.

I believe it starts by developing simple life habits, which over time pull you in the direction you want to go. If you want to learn how to work less, get more done and live with greater focus, then come join us on the journey.

  2. Hi Jonathan.
    I was hoping to speak with you directly for a brief conversation. I have a strong sales and marketing background. I have worked with many high net worth investors and have worked on a number of self funded projects. Do you have a few minutes to chat?

    If so please e-mail me off line with a number that I can reach you at.
    Thank you.


  3. Hi Jonathan,

    I am taking your 30 day job research challenge. Do you still do free resume critique which you mentioned day 9 task?

  4. Hi Jonathan,

    First and foremost, nice
    work on the Simple life habits blog. Your posts’ articulation and details inspired us around our office!
    We’ve been reviewing literally hundreds of productivity blogs, and we hand-picked
    yours as one that we thought would be a perfect fit with what we’re doing.

    You can rest easy that
    we’re not here to ask you to review our latest innovation in gluten-free energy
    bars or wipe-warming technology. We actually don’t even make those things.

    What we do make is Haiku
    Deck, a new free app that
    makes it incredibly easy to illustrate a blog post with style. Images are one
    of the best ways to engage readers, and with Haiku Deck you can create killer
    slideshows like
    this one (my story in Haiku Deck form), in no time flat.

    Would you be game for
    giving the app a try on your blog and letting us know what you think? We would
    be honored to have you as part of our creative community, and we’d truly value
    your feedback.

    I can get you started
    with everything you need and set you up with a premium theme — just let me know
    if we can count you in. You can reply directly to me or sign up
    for our blog club here (it’ll take less time than choosing a karaoke song, promise).

    Thanks so much,

    Erin Michael Vondrak

    P.S. If in fact you are
    already using Haiku Deck, Hai-5! I’d love to see what you’ve created with it and
    hear any feedback you have about the app.


  5. Hey, I just wanted to be the first to comment here! I’ve enjoyed getting to know you and your work, Jonathan, and I’ll be keeping tabs via RSS Reader. Take care!
