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:
Since we’re home, I’m working to bring more LIVE conversations to you from our living rooms. Join me + adventure photographer / filmmaker Ben Moon at 12:30PM PST tomorrow. There will be a live chat, so please ask us some questions as well. See you there.
You might know Ben from his adventure and lifestyle photography or his beautiful films. Surviving cancer in his 20s gradually shifted his artistic focus from capturing the pursuit of adventure to telling nuanced human stories that have inspired and impacted millions. Most notably, his personal story battling colorectal cancer and his special relationship with his dog Denali, which he shares in his beautiful viral short film, now turned book, Denali.
