Over the years, I’ve really fallen in love with the ability to share and connect with you through my social channels. Never before has it been easier and faster to create, share, and connect. In a digital age where it’s possible to live in our own little bubble, it can often feel technology is better at isolating us than connecting. What I’ve found though, is the opposite. I can think of the countless names I’ve seen in my feeds for years, and now with platforms like instagram (add me here), I can not only share my thoughts, ideas, and happenings 1-to-many, but we can chat 1:1 — almost in real-time. It’s like having the internet on my speed dial. On a trip to London, half-way across the world, many of you asked to meet up while I was there — so within a few hours of landing, we were able to find a place, invite whoever wanted/could come via all my social channels to meet at a small local pub. While I will always advocate being present in the moment and with those around you, digital actually does do a great job of connecting us too. Instagram in particular has […]
Listen to the Podcast Congrats! You did it – you’re graduating! Big ups on all the hard work and long hours. But here’s the scary part. Graduation is the first day of the rest of your life. Last week by far the most popular question I saw in my social feed was around graduation. Either YOU were graduating, your friends or sons / daughters–and, naturally, there was a lot of concern. Generally you asked what I’d tell new graduates in a time like this … So that’s what today’s #chasejarvisRAW is all about. Whether you are a twenty-something just about to enter the job market or you know someone who is “graduating” to a new career, whether it’s photography or any other creative / entrepreneurial discipline … here are my TOP 3 THINGS GRADUATES NEED TO BE THINKING ABOUT. Thing 1: Be Great At Your Craft Learning doesn’t end when you’re no longer in the classroom. This might be seem like an obvious thing, yet so many people leave school and forget that they need to be great at their skill and instead get consumed by the myriad of OTHER things surrounding a career, such as building a website, getting […]

It’s easy to look as those who are seemingly wealthy and think — oh, that’s so unachievable. They’re standing on a mountaintop somewhere, waving that “I’m rich” flag. Not so fast. David Bach thinks you can wave that flag too – while earning “enough,” but a lot less than you think. David Bach is a 9-time New York Times bestselling author and one of America’s favorite financial experts of our time. He has taught millions to live a rich life through his seminars, live events, courses, books—and Oprah appearances. And in his new book: The Latte Factor he uncovers what he says is the best kept secret to building long term wealth – yes $5 at a time. And there’s some pretty handy life lessons that go along with this idea as well. More than anything – what David does so well is articulate how to be intentional about both your dreams and your financial future. Both just take time and consistency. We dive deep into: David’s rarely-discussed early life, including lessons in finance –and life– that he learned as a 7 year old from his grandmother. How to listen to your intuition and follow the path that leads toward […]

So impressed that I managed to share some of my favorite parts of the class here with you. In this episode, Tabatha delivers some great, hard-hitting truths around fear, heart, and mindset.

By working to highlight a diverse set of narratives from under represented populations, Joshua Kissi and Karen Okonkwo — two of Inc Magazine’s 30 Under 30 — are addressing a huge gap in the creative market. Karen was at Arizona State University when she decided to start a blog for sorority women. It gained immediate attention. Yet, when a friend asked why there wasn’t any African Americans showcased on the site, she was defensive. As an African American herself, she thought – of course we do! But as she pulled out her phone and started scrolling through the site, she realized her friend was right. She had fallen into the subconsciously biased, racially one-sided trap. Desperately focused on change, she began to showcase all types of women of color, sexual orientation, and under represented groups on her site. But she had a sense she was not doing enough. This work caught the attention of the Ghanian-American fashion, lifestyle, and brand photographer Joshua Kissi, and together they co-created TONL a photography and media agency focused on creating images of diverse people and sharing their stories with the world. Enjoy this inspirational, heartfelt and meaningful story of self reflection, discovery, creativity, and action, as […]
