I was speaking at a conference recently and my buddy pulled me aside. “You have to meet this guy Chase Jarvis,” he told me. “He’s one of the world’s best photographers.”

Chase and I ended up sitting next to each other, and I learned some fascinating stuff about him. For example, I learned that if he gets TEN photo clients per year — just 10 — that’s a “great year” for him. (Just think about that. Is anyone else also fascinated by mastery?)

He also runs a web show where he interviews people like Sir Mix-a-Lot (a personal writing hero of mine for his timeless classic), Tim Ferriss (who introduced us), and famous photographers. Now, you’ve heard me mock Twitter as being worthless for my business. But when Chase tweets, 15,000-30,000 come and watch his web show…concurrently. Holy shit.

Anyway, at this conference, I ended up giving him some advice about the business side of photography while sitting on a bus, my usual spot for wisdom-dispensing, which he later wrote about:

“No one has single-handedly given me better insight about the business side of art/photography than has Ramit Sethi. [Go ahead and read that again.] In a single conversation earlier this year he dropped so much knowledge on me that I couldn’t take notes fast enough.”

I’m telling you this because he recently invited me to his studio in Seattle, where he and I recorded 1.5 hours of material how creative people can master business. This is usually material I save for private talks and my premium students, but today I wanted to share it with you.

The video is 90 minutes long and you guys are gonna love it. It includes word-for-word scripts you can use in negotiations, business, and even personal relationships. You’ll learn some of the material I learned from my top instructors and mentors. And I dig into the psychology of creative people — or anyone who’s tried to persuade someone else to do something.

Happy holidays and enjoy : )

The URL I mention in the video is

Check out Chase’s blog — it’s got amazing material for creative people and I guarantee you’ll find at least 3 game-changers in an hour.

  1. Ramit, this is one of your BEST videos ever!

    Folks, if you want to get a bomb of content from Ramit then watch it!

    Happy New Year!

    • Yea that contact blew me away…

      And what do they say.., once a mind has been exposed to a different idea, it is never the same after…

      all about changing that context..

    Awesome Ramit, I watched this live when you and Chase were broadcasting! My buddy and I agreed, this was the BEST cjLIVE for ANY creative.

    Ps, just bought your book, because of Chase having you on the show… (now he owes you a drink, right?) SO much good info! Thanks!

  3. I bought your book because you killed it on chase Jarvis live. Props, and thanks for sharing the knowledge.

  4. Wow Ramit, this is awesome. I’m looking forward to spending some time watching the video this weekend. Thanks so much for generously sharing.

  5. I have been following Ramit’s content for several years now and this interview is one of the best materials he has ever provided.

    This video is not only an excellent summary of many different strategies, but if you watch the video correctly you can get a very good understanding of how to transition different strategies into tactical actions. I am personally not interested in artist-type work but this video should help anyone who wants actionable content for any niche.

    90 minutes is rather long – I personally have trouble even listening to a full song before flipping to another – but I am very grateful that I took the time to pay attention to this.

  6. Ramit~
    This was incredible! I’ve had the good fortune to hear you present in person (RHH Live) and to have watched Tim Ferriss’ appearance on CJ Live, so it was without question I would invest 90 minutes. I’ll be replaying it again (taking notes this time) and sharing it with a couple friends of mine, both photographers. They’ll certainly be enriched by what you’re offering up.

    Thank you for all the work you do, and for sharing your brilliance! May 2012 bring you untold success!

  7. I agree with the comments, I usually don’t watch long videos but you guys made me watch every minute. Tons of advises in this video, we will be fools to ignore them. I suggested this video to one photographer, who had to sell his photo equipments, hope he sees this video and turns his life around. Thanks again Ramit. Cheers.

  8. Ramit thanks for posting the video. I caught most of the live broadcast and were truly some gems. Thanks for all the great wisdom in your book IWTYTBR. Here’s to dominating in 2012. Happy New Year

  9. Thank you so much! I’ve been following you for the last little while (a year maybe) and have thought, “good advice, next” With this show, I thought “I should have asked for his book for Christmas!”
    Because you like specifics:
    I really enjoyed the consistency of the examples as they were all about photography, (of course it’s a photography show) but when you change only one thing, your techniques, your advice shines. I hope you continue to do shows like this. Kudos to Chris for keeping the advice in the photography context. Also, in a Vidiot world, where attention spans are 3 min, I loved the 90 min segment, because everything was coherent and brought together in one sitting.
    Thanks to Chris for creating the framework. I completely understand why they pay you the big bucks. Happy New Year!

  10. Seeing this video made me very happy.

    My mother’s always been hounding me on how I’ll end up poor for choosing to pursue a career in art. But I really like art and intend to go to art college. This video made me gain more confidence in my career path. So thanks!
