Innovation Starts When You Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

Innovation Starts When You Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

Chase Jarvis is a long-time friend. A real friend. He’s also someone I deeply admire. His talents as a photographer, online persona, speaker, director and human being are raw and next level (check out his new book Creative Calling!)

The Importance of Artistry in Business and Everything

I am a big fan of Chase Jarvis and I’m also proud to call him a dear friend. As I was preparing for the launch of my next book, I found this gem of a video from 2013. I can’t believe I lost this. In what is either a serendipitous or coincidental discovery, this video was shot as part of the official debut of CreativeLIVE‘s studio in San Francisco at the same time I was introducing  What’s the Future of…
