Richard Branson (Founder/Virgin Group)I have always believed that you will enjoy life and be more successful if you focus on creating amazing experiences; businesses and relationships.

Brandon Stanton (Creator/Humans of New York)Chase Jarvis is my favorite person to go to for advice. I’m sure he’s tired of me calling him. He was one of the first people to recognize the power of the Internet for artists, and he still has the best insight for anyone looking to follow a creative path. He’s taught me so much. This book reads like a long, intimate conversation with Chase. And there’s nothing more valuable in the world.
Debbie Millman (Designer, Writer, Host/Design Matters)Chase Jarvis is a remarkable creative spirit. His new book, Creative Calling, is proof positive that creativity is both an art and a practice. With great candor and deft insight, Chase debunks the myths surrounding what is means to be a creative person and proves that anyone and everyone can be creative. Creative Calling will whole-heartedly change the way you think about how and why humans create, and it will provide you with the inspiration to make a bigger life than you ever thought possible.
Life isn’t about “finding” fulfillment and success – it’s about creating it. Why then has creativity been given a back seat in our culture? No longer.
Creativity is a force inside every person that, when unleashed, transforms our lives and delivers vitality to everything we do. Establishing a creative practice is therefore our most valuable and urgent task - as important to our well-being as exercise or nutrition.
The good news? Renowned artist, author, and CreativeLive founder, Chase Jarvis, reminds us that creativity isn't a skill—it's a habit available to everyone: beginners and lifelong creators, entrepreneurs to executives, astronauts to zookeepers, and everyone in between. Through small, daily actions we can supercharge our innate creativity and rediscover our personal power in life.
Whether your ambition is a creative career, completing a creative project, or simply cultivating a creative mindset, Creative Calling will unlock your potential via Jarvis’s memorable “IDEA” system:
· Imagine your big dream, whatever you want to create—or become—in this world.
· Design a daily practice that supports that dream—and a life of expression and transformation.
· Execute on your ambitious plans and make your vision real.
· Amplify your impact through a supportive community you’ll learn to grow and nurture.
