DEFY THE DEFAULT.
Do it Together.
In times of creative flow, entrepreneurs, creatives, and business leaders become practically delirious with the sense of possibility. Your heart races, you see endless opportunity, and you imagine the sense of meaning you’ll derive from your big vision.
But how will you refine and hold onto that vision?
How will you accomplish the goals you set out in 2018?
What will ensure you create the change and impact you ache to see in your life and the world?
Meet Our 2018 Visionaries
What sets Quest2018 apart from previous years?
This year we’re taking a roundtable approach with our visionaries, as Jeffrey and invited guests tackle the tough topics we face as entrepreneurs, creatives, and business leaders.
Each pair of visionary leaders will bring their perspective, and in some cases, complementary views. As a Quest participant you will receive exclusive access to these inspiring conversations and to each leader’s instigation to you.
Check this page throughout the month of November as we reveal the themes that will be covered by our visionary pairings each week.
If you opt in for an accountability group, we’ll even organize that group for you!

You will receive access to a roundtable conversation between two renowned visionaries and Jeffrey on a provocative topic designed to help you map your best work in the coming year. Each visionary will provide an instigation at the end of the conversation.
You will then receive a note or video from Jeffrey to check in on your progress from Tuesday and a thoughtful instigation to continue to help you dive deep on that week’s theme.
Check your inboxes for an exercise that helps to translate your work and answers from the instigations and round table convo into how you will live and work your best 2018.
We invite you to continue the conversation in our private Facebook forum. Share your responses through your medium of preference. We’ve had Questers create everything from blogs and podcasts to art and photographs in addition to sharing social media posts.
