On Episode of 114 of The Monica Kade podcast, I’m sitting down with a truly incredible human being: Chase Jarvis.
Aside from being a well-renowned photographer, Founder and CEO of CreativeLive—an online education platform that broadcasts live classes to an international audience on art, photography, design, marketing business and more—he also hosts The Chase Jarvis Live Show and has authored a handful of books. His most recent being Creative Calling. Oh, and he’s also survived a near death experience with an avalanche.
As soon as I heard Chase speak on creativity I knew I had to get him on the show. The way he spoke about creativity, and creative expression resonated very much with how I see it. I feel like his take on creativity challenges the status quo and goes against what many people will tell you about your Creative Calling.
His philosophy around being creative is: giving of ourselves freely, adding value and expecting nothing in return. Super powerful.
What I love most about Chase is his genuine love to connect with people; his friendly and warm nature make you feel like you've known each other for years. Talking with Chase is like having a conversation with a dear friend over coffee.
Take a listen to our chat—you’ll walk away empowered, and inspired to re-discover, or start following your creative call. I have no doubt around that.
