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.


From the outside, Eugene has lived what we may think of as the typical struggling comedian’s career. It took him six years of failing before got a bit of traction. Most people quit well before the 6-year mark. How did he persevere through those years of struggle? He never considered not being a comedian. He didn’t give himself a backup plan. He made the conscious decision to keep trying new things until things started to stick. Eugene is a living lesson of perseverance and tenacity, and his mindset is one that will help you thrive long term, regardless of what you’re creating. Listen to this episode if you want to laugh while getting schooling on how to make sacrifices that pay off.

  • If you have a skill, service, or product that serves someone’s need, your audience is out there looking for you as hard as you are looking for them.
  • No one is stopping you from making the thing that you want to make. Go make it and then find 5 ways to get that thing out there. Then do it again.
  • Focus on your one big goal and work on it every day. It’s a long slow grind, but if you stick with it for 10 to 15 years, Eugene is betting that you’ll be a success.
