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:
If you are interested in transformation, leadership, overcoming fear or the intersection of creativity and business you’ll love this episode. Beth’s mission and our show aim to stand for the same things- imagination, courage, creativity, and the power of change. Beth shares stories and tactics alike around how she’s taking a renewed control over her future and next career, and how you can too. Whether you’re an artist, or you work as a middle manager, or you’re putting an idea into a niche market for the first time – there’s something great in here for you.
- If you are like so many of us creators out there, you probably have a bit of a perfectionist mentality. You want your ideas and art to be perfect before releasing it to the world. However, if you don’t release anything (be it a song, a painting, or a business idea) until it’s perfect, you’ll very rarely release anything at all. Get your ideas out into the world and let the feedback that you get help shape it into perfection.
- Who are you waiting for to give you permission to make decisions, to speak up, and to take action? Write yourself a permission slip to do what needs to be done.
- If you want to make something, you have to learn the skills necessary to build it. In order to learn something, you’ve got to be inspired enough to put in the amount of work required to learn it. If you aren’t inspired by anything, start with your own curiosity. Ask questions that you’d like to know the answer to until you find inspiration. Then start learning… which will lead to making.
One of the world’s most powerful women in business, Beth Comstock, recently left a 27-year career at GE as their Chief Marketing Officer and Vice Chair to go in a completely different direction – to a new life beyond the enterprise-exec world where her new areas of focus include writing, art, exploration, and discovery. Rarely do we see or hear of these evolutions – where someone like Beth who is so accomplished in big business reveals very publicly and vulnerably that she’s just excited to “do something new” and figure it all out along the way. It’s simultaneously brilliant, empowering, and refreshing all at the same time. And that’s in part what makes this episode of the podcast so extraordinary. We talk about this journey she’s been on and this is among her very first interviews where she shares key insights from her new book Imagine It Forward: Courage, Creativity, and The Power of Change.
