    Dream First, Details Later with Ellen Bennett

    Dream First, Details Later with Ellen Bennett

    One of the most common stories I hear is, "I'm not ready yet." You have a dream, a goal, an ambition, but without the connections, skills, or resources it feels out of reach. Social media makes it easy to see others' success without showing the REAL stuff. Late nights, blood, sweat, tears… the messy middle doesn't make the highlight reel. This mindset undermines our confidence and inhibits creativity.
    Chances are, you do have what you need to get started. Today's show is going to prove it to you. Ellen Bennett, Founder of Hedley and Bennett and author of DREAM FIRST, DETAILS LATER, lifts the curtains to talk about her uncertain, circuitous, passion-driven journey. After a difficult divorce at age 9, Ellen was raised by her mother, who worked long hours to keep the lights on and the family fed. At 18, a two-month trip to Mexico turned into 4 years before Ellen returned to the U.S., walked in the back door of a Michelin star restaurant and asked for a job as a line cook. There, she observed the challenges cooks faced- one of them being the one-size fits all aprons that wore out, caused problems and generally weren't quality products. Hedley and Bennett is now one of the world's leading Apron manufacturers, collaborating with tastemakers like Martha Stewart and Alton Brown and top chefs like David Chang, April Bloomfield, and Nobu Matsuhisa.
    For aspiring entrepreneurs stuck in analysis paralysis, creatives procrastinating on a personal project, or anyone caught in obsessive over-planning, Ellen shares her gutsy personal playbook to putting your inner worrier on silent and leaping into action.

    Creativity is a Habit

    Creativity is a Habit

    A few weeks ago a shared a conversation on Clubhouse with photographers Ben Von Wong and Tim Tadder and I received a lot of positive feedback. If you're not familiar with Clubhouse, it's new social audio platform. It's currently still in beta, so access is still limited. So grateful to be able to record a couple of these and share them out so you can listen in.
    Today I'm back with hosts Walid Azami (@walid.azami) and Mathieu Young (@mathieuyoung) in a Clubhouse conversation talking about creativity and my book Creative Calling. Some things we get into:
    We are the only species that trains the instincts out of our children. Inherently, we are creative machines, and tapping into that is key to not only success, but also more importantly, fulfillment Pulling the thread on the thing you know about yourself, whether it's inconvenient or not, you pursue it because you're following your intuition. Knowing when the burn the boats, but protecting against the downside Writing has been reborn in my life- radically important for galvanizing my thoughts, if you can't write it down in a way that makes sense to you, it's going to be hard to put that out in the world. Short term urgency, long term patience
    Seasons of life- we can't perform at the peak forever, the folks at the top of their craft take time to recover, heal, train and improve Once you find your thing, how do you execute? The creative challenges and tug-o-wars are universal- we all go through it. You're not alone. Enjoy!

    Harley Finkelstein: We're Never Going Back

    Harley Finkelstein: We're Never Going Back

    It's no secret that 2020 has shifted how we do business. Businesses, creators, artists and remote workers had to adapt and innovate in new and expanding ways, accelerating innovation, technology and the internet. Ordering take-out, banking, and even counseling online was no longer a nice-to-have, it was do or die. 
    One person on the front lines of that evolution is my good friend Harley Finkelstein, president of Shopify, where he is building, championing, and helping other businesses grow. Today, Shopify is one of the the world’s largest eCommerce platforms. Harley founded his first business at 17 years old, and developed a problem-solving skillset that has been instrumental throughout the last 11 years building Shopify. By disrupting the entrepreneurial space with services and features that were traditionally reserved for large corporations, Shopify is powerful tool for small businesses, artists and entrepreneurs alike.
    In this episode we explore:
    [7:17] How supply and demand create an inspiring retail landscape, and the ways in which Shopify is making entrepreneurship accessible. [18:04] Entrepreneurship as an accelerant for ambition. [32:23] The direct relationship between the creator and the consumer. Learn the history, present, and future of how creators/ entrepreneurs relate to their customers, which creates a better business model. [42:37] How the pandemic transformed communities’ interest in supporting local businesses and the future of conscious consumerism. [50:59] Shopify’s goal to support entrepreneurs. Harley shares how Shopify is supporting small businesses with financial assistance, marketing, geolocating for consumers, and offering financial education to Black entrepreneurs. Enjoy!

    How to Become a Pro in 5 Simple Steps

    How to Become a Pro in 5 Simple Steps

    I received a note the other day from an aspiring photographer. He wanted to know what it takes to become a pro. I thought--very pragmatically--that it's really not complicated. HARD maybe, but complicated, no. In this episode, I cover the 5 key steps to becoming a pro.
    Now, if you're thinking - Chase, it is a bunch of fluff.... Well, of course. Here's the truth: This isn't really about how to become a pro. It's about how to commit to something.
    There are a zillion steps to becoming a pro. Days, weeks, years of work on the craft. But the #1 thing I see absent in people who SAY they want it....it a lack of commitment. This is usually because of fear.
    Fear that you won't be able to support yourself and MAKE A LIVING - WHICH IS WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A PROFESSIONAL. The reality is that you probably either want to become a pro and still need to do the following things; or you don't want it.
    In the former case - that you DO want to become a pro and - then this episode is a 'you can do this / get off your ass' message to you. In the latter case - the case of not actually wanting it -- then there's no need to pretend. Maybe it's just a hobby or an side-interest and that's okay too.
    Enjoy!
