In this episode we cover…
  • Exercising the muscle of creativity and being intentional in practicing it same ways we practice physical exercise. 
  • Simplifying the complex. Creative Live takes a complex topic such as photography and making it easier for regular people to understand and learn. Running for Real takes a complex topic like running and makes it more relatable. 
  • On the way creativity empowers us to shape our own lives and environments. Similar to how running changes your body or starting a business changes your mind, creativity give us agency.
  • Create before you consume. –Marie Forleo
  • Beginnings hide themselves in endings. Chase shares the story of Best Camera App ending and Creative Live beginning.
  • Creativity is connecting seemingly disconnected things in a new way. 
  • A dive into Chase’s book, Creative Calling and how we can use it as a toolkit to design our best lives. 
  • The launch of “The Creator” shoe collab with K-Swiss
