Creativity: It’s Not A Skill. It’s A Habit: Chase Jarvis

An interview with Chase Jarvis

10 Sep Creativity: It’s Not A Skill. It’s A Habit: Chase Jarvis

My guest is Chase Jarvis. Chase is an award-winning artist, successful entrepreneur, and one of the most influential photographers of the past decade. He’s created campaigns for Apple, Nike, Red Bull, he’s been a contributor to the Pulitzer-winning New York Times story “Snowfall,” AND he’s interviewed some of the biggest names in business, publishing, and entertainment.

He’s created a wildly popular app called “Best Camera,” and he’s the Founder of CreativeLive, where more than 10 million students learn photography, video, design, music, and business from the world’s top creators and entrepreneurs.

Chase has one of the best podcasts out there. It’s called the “Chase Jarvis LIVE Show” where he’s interviewed incredible people like Brene’ Brown, Seth Godin, and Gary Vaynerchuk.

Chase’s new book called “Creative Calling” is set to be released later this month. I got to check out an advanced copy and DREAM THINK DOers… this book was written for you. So be sure to grab a copy. Click Here to check it out.

Today, we’re going to talk with Chase about his journey… but we’re also going to talk about how YOU can release, reawaken or re-ignite your inner-creative… whether you’ve ever considered yourself creative… or not.

Let’s do this!

    What an inspiring episode, Mitch! I’m even going back for a second listen! Chase speaks so much truth in 40 minutes it’s unreal. I could go on, but this one is ‘must listen’! Thanks Mitch!

      Jeff – I’m so glad you connected with this interview! I totally agree. Chase brought the gold. And I loved his transparency and willingness to go “off script” to talk about how we ALL need to be reminded to dream and imagine bigger!

    Total mic drop! So good! I am so glad I am only 49 years old so I have all of the time ahead of me to make these changes! Thanks Mitch!
