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 bunch of stuff here that I wasn’t expecting to get into – if you’re thinking this is gonna be a bunch of inside baseball about Silicon Valley (the place or the TV show), it’s not that. What’s super interesting to me here is that Amanda deals with so many of the same things that you hear from the other people on this show: imposter syndrome, “post-success hangover,” being a hyphen and all the challenges that come with that, and a bunch of other themes you’ll recognize from other guests if you’re a long time listener. I love hearing how each guest grapples with these things, and I also love sharing the fact that these are nearly universal challenges that all creators face – so if any of these things strike a chord with you and sound familiar, rest assured that you are far from alone and the people you look up to deal with the same things.

  • Like almost everyone on my show, Amanda is a hyphen – she’s a passionate photographer, although it took her a while to give herself permission to be more than an actor – she talks about overcoming the social bias that you can be good at more than one thing
  • She talks about the low point of her career a few years back when the recession and a writer’s strike hit at the same time one of her movies flopped and she didn’t work for nearly two years – and how rebuilding her career from scratch was actually the thing that made her believe in herself more than ever and conquer the imposter syndrome
  • We also get into the phenomenon of dealing with “what’s next” – as an actor that’s a constant thing for her: wrap a season of the show and there’s the instant question of “ok so now what?” It’s not an easy one for many people to answer and she has some great thoughts on it that apply to any creator


Amanda Crew is an actress who’s best known for playing Monica on the hit HBO show “Silicon Valley,” which I absolutely love for skewering tech culture in a loving but deadly accurate way. If you haven’t seen the show please, please do yourself a favor and check it out – season 4 recently premiered on HBO. But her career goes back many years: she’s appeared in a ton of shows and movies like Smallville, Final Destination 3, Life As We Know It and much more.
