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.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Today on the show we have one of my favorite comedians, Nate Bargatze. If you’re not aware of Nate’s work, consider this intro a gift – he’s on a rocket ship right now, one of the top up-and-coming comics in the game. After listening to our conversation here, you’ll want to check out his brand new Netflix special that just dropped. He’s laugh-out-loud funny and simultaneously has great insight around following dreams and creating success rather than hoping it “happens."
In our conversation we talk about his early life – how he found and decided to pursue his passion in the face of challenging odds (how many people become a standup comedian?), his earliest experiences of storytelling, and what it was like to have a father who is a magician and a clown. (It’s hilarious.)
In this episode we cover a LOT...
- The difficulty of consistently creating good work and why consistency matters most
- The benefits of staying uncomfortable...
- The importance of life-long learning and community – to every creator. Must haves.
- The power of saying ‘yes.’
- The psychology of persistence and success – how to keep going when everyone else doesn’t see your dream.
- ...and lots more
