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:
Julien is BAAACK…this time talking about both his best selling books (The Flinch, and Trust Agents) and…drumroll please… his latest startup venture called Breather – an amazing service the provides on-demand meeting and studio space all across North America, which has raised more than $100M to date. When I need recording studios for the podcast on short notice in LA or NYC? I use Breather. A quick headshot where you don’t want to rent a photo studio for $3000. Yep, Breather again. $150 bucks. You get the picture.
But more than anything, this episode is simply rich with a dose of reality that all of us creators and entrepreneurs need to hear: namely that we’re all in this together. That we all have imposter syndrome. That we all simultaneously love AND fear what we’re doing when we’re setting out to create something with our name on it. And that we’re all….human.
- The rules are made up. You can invent the future if you’re willing to rewrite the rules.
- Staying flexible along the way is key to long term success. Just how do you do that when you’re stubborn? (hint: it’s not easy but you can do it)
- We can all manufacture safety nets to protect us from letting small failures turn too big. Money in the bank? The support of those who love us? A plan B? Safety nets come in many forms and it’s a skill for entrepreneurs and creators to master…instead of just jumping into our next big adventure blind to the risks…
- …and a hundred or so more hilarious and wise takeaways from AJ
Julien Smith is a long-time friend and familiar face on the podcast. I first brought him on in 2013 to talk about why not caring about what others think is a useful skill to have as a creator in any field (translation: he penned a LEGENDARY blog post called ‘the subtle art of not giving a f*$k’ – which went crazy viral and later inspired a best selling book by Mark Manson…).
