About The Class

There's a common misconception that artists have a monopoly on creativity… But the very act of making waves - no matter the career - is a creative one. The Chase Jarvis LIVE Show is an exploration of creativity, self-discovery, entrepreneurship, hard-earned lessons, and so much more. Chase sits down with the world's top creators, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders and unpacks actionable, valuable insights to help you live your dreams in career, hobby, and life.


We touch on a huge range of subjects in this episode ranging from investing to leadership and everything in between – and I think the common denominator here is pattern recognition. Reid has had the incredible opportunity to be exposed to big data sets on some things few others get to observe- for example, that he sees thousands of deals a year as an investor or that he’s advised hundreds of CEOs. I’m grateful to be able to take advantage of his experience and unique POV and I’m incredibly happy that this interview gives you – the folks at home – the opportunity to do the same.

  • Reid shares some context on Masters Of Scale – on why he talks so much about scale, why Silicon Valley is so exceptionally good at it, and why the show has been a source of joy for him as a creative outlet
  • We talk about our shared background in philosophy and why it’s been such a valuable tool for us. People often ask me when in the world I ever use my philosophy education and my answer is “every minute of every day,” and Reid shares some similar sentiments
  • He gets into some of the classic mistakes he’s seen leaders make, specifically the idea that as the company grows, the game you’re playing also changes – the “what got you here won’t get you there” concept. So many founders don’t see this happening in the background and as a result, fail to adapt your work.


Reid Hoffman is one of the most successful and respected entrepreneurs and investors of all time, first serving as the COO of PayPal then founding LinkedIn which was sold to Microsoft – where he is now on the board – for $26 billion. As a VC partner at Greylock, he’s invested in countless other top companies including Airbnb, Flickr, Digg and CreativeLive among many others. He’s also the author of the brilliant book “The Alliance,” works with several non-profits like Kiva, Open AI and Quest Bridge and hosts the incredible new podcast “Masters Of Scale” which has welcomed guests like Sheryl Sandberg, Mark Zuckerberg, Brian Chesky, and Reed Hastings.
