Inspiration to your Inbox...My Favorites from #30DaysofGenius

Inspiration to your Inbox...My Favorites from #30DaysofGenius

30 days. 30 inspirational individuals. 30 fabulous interviews. 

That is what #30DaysOfGenius offers. 

Chase Jarvis, the mastermind behind CreativeLive, has brought 30 world-class achievers together in one interview series to provide you with the inspiration you need to overcome obstacles and build habits that will fuel your creativity. 

"There's a common misconception that artists have a monopoly on creativity. But the very act of making something - shooting a photograph, designing a product, thinking critically, or building a business - is a creative one. These small actions come from our unique inner impulse to create." - Chase Jarvis

In this series of interviews, each genius shares their successes, their challenges, and even their failures, with the goal of giving you actionable steps to work toward achieving your personal dreams. Pair that with Chase's laid-back interview style and obvious passion for sharing information and education that will help his audience grow and evolve as creatives, thinkers, business owners, and humans, and you've got an invaluable resource...for free. 

Yep. Free. 

You can watch just one, or just a few, but my bet is that once you start, you will get caught up in everything that these brilliant minds have to offer, and keep them rolling. 

Chase Jarvis and CreativeLive are always bringing top-notch education and inspiration to the table, and the 30 Days of Genius series is no exception.

If 30 videos feels overwhelming, or you're not sure where to start, here are a list of my favorites. These are the geniuses I most looked forward to hearing from, and, boy, did they deliver. If you only watch a few of the videos, I highly recommend that these be the ones you go to first. 

Tim Ferriss

He's been called "this generation's self-help guru" by the New Yorker...but he's got more than just your standard self-help to offer. He has made it his goal to "learn how to learn" and shares his experience and insight in three best-selling books- The 4 Hour Work Week, The 4-Hour Body, and The 4-Hour Chef. 

Gary Vaynerchuck

This guy is so successful it's dizzying. If there is a single entrepreneurial bone in your body, you should be listening to what he has to say. Right out of college, Gary Vee took only five years to grow his family's wine business from $3M to $60M. Now, he runs an ultra-successful digital media agency (VaynerMedia) and is an investor in big name companies including Facebook, Uber, and Birchbox. 

Seth Godin

An author, entrepreneur, blogger, and marketing mastermind, a guy you definitely want to follow on your road to success. You might know him from one of the 18 best sellers he's written, such as Purple Cow, Linchpin, and The Icarus Deception. He writes about marketing, leadership, the way ideas spread, and challenging the status quo. More recently, Godin designed altmba, 'an intensive, 4-week online workshop for high-performing individuals who want to level up and lead.'


Ramit Sethi

Entrepreneur, blogger, and author of the must-read best-seller, I Will Teach You To Be Rich, Ramit is definitely a genius that needs to be on your radar. You can also be one of more than 500,000 people following his blogs at iwillteachyoutoberich.com and growthlab.com. Ramit is a personal finance power-thinker, and will give you steps you can take right now to make your money grow and your dreams become closer to reality.
