During lockdown, Johno Meintjes founded a transformative community in South Africa known as JEFF, where thousands sought support for their mental and physical well-being, but what is he up to now?


Johannesburg, South Africa (28 February 2024) – That JEFF guy created a life-changing community during lockdown.

One that hundreds and thousands of South Africans joined to get help to look after their minds and bodies… but his name isn’t actually JEFF.

That’s just what I used to call him.

You see, JEFF is actually an acronym for an organisation that was started by a guy called Johno Meintjes, and we have him on the Good Things Guy podcast today!
