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.


I love this conversation because we got into so many of the issues with the traditional education system– for example, the oftentimes inadequate curriculum and insane cost that leaves so many saddled with crippling debt. But more importantly, we talk about solutions – this is really about two founders who are passionate about making education work for all the people it currently isn’t serving sitting down and comparing notes. If you’re a student or parent of a student this stuff is already top of mind for you, and in a world in which we’ve all got an increasingly urgent mandate to educate ourselves these topics are relevant to anyone – not just traditional students and their families.

  • Why he walked away from a career in management consulting – at Bain, no less – the elite of the elites – to dedicate himself to his passion of giving the rural poor access to education via Pencils Of Promise
  • We get into a topic I’ve been touching on a lot lately which is a balance. As a new father and entrepreneur, this is a big challenge for Adam – like many people listening to this I’m sure – and he speaks very candidly about the real tradeoffs he has to make between his company, his family and his health
  • On that note, he also shares some of the habits and hacks he’s developed to minimize those tradeoffs – some great stuff that I’d highly encourage putting into practice in your life such as his journaling routine and practice of putting his phone in airplane mode in another room before going to bed


Adam Braun is an author and entrepreneur who you may know from his work with Pencils of Promise, an organization that creates schools and other projects that bring education to underserved populations living in rural poverty. He’s also the author of the book “The Promise Of A Pencil” and more recently the founder of a super exciting education startup called MissionU– he’ll get into more detail but tell me if you think this sounds interesting: 1 year of intense, skill-based education with NO upfront tuition – instead, you give them a percentage of your income once you land that sweet job.
