How to Take Risk in Your Business Without Fear / Pete Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

March 20, 2019

Greetings and welcome to the Creative Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Pete Lorimer, former hit record producer, now host of the show Stay Here on Netflix and owner LA’s most creative Boutique real estate firm, PLG Estates.

This podcast dives into something a lot of entrepreneurs suffer with-- we become trapped by fear and start underestimating ourselves. We talk ourselves out of 90% of our ideas. Those ideas you see happen? Those ideas come to fruition through relentless, persistent action that don't listen to those dream-crushing voices. There's no middle, there's no playing it safe. You're either moving closer or further from your goal. We need to nurture our ideas. You have nothing to lose except time. So without further ado, let’s dig into this week’s episode of The Creative Entrepreneur.

 

Golden Nuggets from this episode:

 

[04:27] “I would think 90% of entrepreneurial dreams we talk ourselves out of the first 10 minutes.”

 

[05:44] “most of you have had breakfast, most of you live in the United States, so guess what team, you already won right you already won!”

 

[06:42] “I welcomed failing fast” 

 

[07:17] “There isn't a playing it safe you’re either going forwards or backwards”

 

[09:23] “The only comodity of value we have in our life is time”

 

[11:06] “Unless you have a white hot burning desire to become a director it's not gonna happen” Martin Scorsese 

 

[12:08] “When you ask people for advice, maybe 5 out of 10 maybe 6 out of 10 will sit you down and spill their guts and then invite you back”

 

Thanks for being here,

Man vs Machine / Pete Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

March 13, 2019

The real estate, like many, industries has changed over the past decade almost to the point of being unrecognizable. Along with that change, has come readily available data which allows us to drill down and find those most likely to see or buy. In today’s podcast I will be going over some of the best programs out there along with some of my techniques to help us capture more business. So without further ado, let’s dig into this weeks episode of The Creative Entrepreneur.

Golden Nuggets from this episode:

 

[06:30] “The landscape has changed because there is a tidal wave of information that permeates our industry.”

[07:31] “The big Data is only a tool that will help us procure business it's never going to replace us.” 

[08:10] “You don't wanna to be an Uber driver for Real Estate.”

[08:18] “We are no longer The Gatekeepers of information, therefore our job has changed! Those of us that realize that job has changed will flourish!”

[09:38] “When everybody's running in one direction, I run in the other.”

[10:28] “You have to remain in people's lives to remain top of mind.”

The Four Cornerstones of Business - Pete Lorimer / The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

March 6, 2019

On today’s podcast, I will be going over an ethos that is one that came to me over the evolution of trial and error and more than my fair share of school of hard knocks diploma. Rather than me just blurting out what they are, why not just kick back, get comfortable and join me on the Creative Entrepreneur Podcast.

 

Golden Nuggets from this episode:

[04:55] “confidence self-belief, your story, what is your story, your authentic self and your vulnerable cell must be front-and-center”

[05:10] “Self-belief, your story, authenticity, and vulnerability fuel the real you!”

[06:30] “If you do the same thing everyday single day, your execution becomes better and better and better!”

[08:42]“When a system is working and it's great, I just have this innate feeling of how can I make it better?”

[11:22] “being grateful when things go wrong”

[11:59] “Expectations are toxic!”

[12:51] “Every single day of my life, I am in gratitude!”

[15:21] “When you don’t get what you want, you realize that you are exactly where you’re meant to be and that someone else needed to get it instead of you on that day!”

 

Thank you for being here,

A Love Affair With The Unknown / Pete Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

February 27, 2019
On today’s podcast I will be covering a subject that is one of the most important guidelines of how to grow your business. A love affair with the unknown is exactly that. It means no fearing what’s around the corner but embracing it. If we knew everything that was going to happen in our lives we would lead a rather boring existence.
 
My motto is if the trail of breadcrumbs gets me 65% the way there the rest is a love affair with the unknown... thanks for joining me on the creative entrepreneur podcast.
 
 

Golden nuggets from this episode:

[01:51] “Courage is a love affair with the unknown”

[03:39] “Education will only get you 65% of the way the remaining 35% is God.”

[06:42] “in real estate is a saturated Market where everybody does the same thing”

[08:03] “that 35% can either be driven by fear or it can be driven by faith

[09:54] “Expectations are the thorn in the side of of any hopes and dreams, expectations are toxic.

[10:58] “looking into the unknown and trying strategies and taking risk is for me what life is all about”

Move Fast and Break Things - Being Decisive in Business - Pete Lorimer Podcast

January 15, 2019
This is a phrase that has been paramount in my ability to learn and grow at speed whilst accomplishing success in multiple businesses. Move fast and Break Things means to not sweat every minute detail and to have a stab at something even if you fall flat on your face and it ends up being a royal disaster. Fearing putting a step in the wrong direction is paralyzing to growth and moving swiftly whilst being aware that is can all blow up in your face is all part of the entrepreneurs journey. MF&BT is actually a phrase I borrowed from Facebooks own Mark Zuckerberg and it seems this ethos has stood him in good stead so we should all take a leaf out of his book and press forward with ideas at speed and without fear of egg on ones face.

 ​​That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Thanks so much for being here. ​❤️​ P 

Golden Nuggets from this episode:

[02:49] “One of the most important facets of me being able to have a successful business or businesses is, I move fast!

[03:21] “MY Education or evidence only gets in 65% of the way the rest of it the 35% which I feel is the hardest, 35% of making any decision especially when it comes to changing direction is instinct.

[04:24] “Perfection is the death of Industry.

[07:14] “The amount of business owners that I have spoken to that have had all these great ideas and strategies and techniques and it never happens, is way more than hit the shipping date!”

[08:28] “the only commodity we have is time and if I don't try something because I'm afraid of what other people think, I have betrayed myself and taking a withdrawal out of my bank of days which is limited."

[08:56] “I would much rather run a thousand miles an hour into a brick wall then wonder “am I doing the right thing by not doing the right thing”?
