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.


Brace yourself for a TRULY powerful episode with the bestselling author and creative genius, Elizabeth Gilbert. Although best known for her memoir Eat, Pray, Love--which went on to sell over 12 million copies and became a film starring Julia Roberts—she’s also one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world… The whole world. Spend some time with her in your ears on today’s podcast and you’ll know why in under a minute...

In this episode, we cover:

  • How Liz considers mental health her full time job, and writing / being a professional creator is a hobby.
  • How the only way out of pain is through honesty. Liz shares her experiences working through the loss of her partner to cancer. The things we won’t even admit to ourselves will cause us pain, even to the point of mental and physical breakdown
  • Her latest INCREDIBLE novel called City of Girls (…a "delicious novel of glamour, sex, and adventure, about a young woman discovering that you don’t have to be a good girl to be a good person”)
  • Why mercy is the foundation to any creative endeavor.
  • How creativity and writing can be a tool to slow the mind during hard times.
  • And lots more. Liz is seriously remarkable - a force of nature that you’re going to love...


Elizabeth Gilbert was born in Waterbury, Connecticut in 1969, and grew up on a small family Christmas tree farm. She attended New York University, where she studied political science by day and worked on her short stories by night. After college, she spent several years traveling around the country, working in bars, diners and ranches, collecting experiences to transform into fiction.

Ratings and Reviews

Wow! I can't believe there are no reviews on this yet. (Was it just released today?) I selected this course because I love Liz Gilbert's work and was intrigued with the title. I also think Chase Jarvis is a gifted interviewer. I found myself literally in tears as she described some of the aspects of how she has come to the truth of where she is in her life right now. TRUTH! EASE! Compassion and mercy! Powerful concepts - for those courageous enough to take them on! There were SO many surprise nuggets of value brought forth in this course. I am forever changed. I will listen to this many more times. Thank you to BOTH of you!
