Class Description

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.


Of course, I wanted Detlef on to talk about what it takes to be an elite athlete as the show is always aiming to get insights from the worlds top performers, but what really emerged from this episode is his sagedom on all things personal growth, community and how to think about choosing priorities in life.

  • Whether you’re playing sports or building a business, your team needs to have the right balance of stars and support players.
  • It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional athlete considering buying a $200k ride or a creator considering the latest and greatest gear, being very clear on where the lines are between your financial needs, wants and wishes and choosing to prioritize saving for your needs overspending on wants and wishes will help you be financially successful in the long run.
  • We all go through different seasons of our life where our priorities shift and we grow as individuals and teammates. Don’t think that you can or you should have it all figured out right now. Plan for the future if you have the luxury to, but stay flexible enough to realize that you’re going to keep learning and changing along the way.


Detlef Schrempf is certainly a hometown hero for myself and my 90’s Seattle basketball brethren…but he’s also a living example of a self-described “awkward” kid who, after stumbling his way into basketball as a teenager, discovered something he loved…and pursued it. Schrempf went on to play at the pinnacle of his sport where he was a 2-time Olympian and a 3-time NBA All-Star with the Seattle SuperSonics. That said, we learn in this interview that Detlef won’t be defined *just* by his career as a professional athlete… but also by his role as a father, a husband, and a role model in his community.
