Such a great class to accompany the book, thanks Chase! I wasn't expecting this content when buying the book last year. Love it! Thank you for your wonderful guidance and inspiration to help us live up to our full potential in life! The steps of the IDEA framework is a great resource to fall back on, regardless of what type of creative project.

This has been a great dive into the book, with Chase's conversation and examples showing how to apply the concepts to our lives. I especially appreciate how generous Chase has been with his time - he spends at a minimum 30 minutes after every call answering questions and brainstorming with the community and that's just as enlightening as the conversation about the book. He's generous, encouraging, approachable, kind, and shows us an efficient way to not only make creativity a major part of our lives, but to see the many ways we are already creative and can build on that.
