Greetings and welcome to the Creative Entrepreneur Podcast, I am your host Peter 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 is all about how to become a ninja real estate agent (or really just how to kick ass at anything you do).
First, let's clear the air. All those experts you see out there--they did not "wake up like this." It takes hard work and time. If I'm going to fail, I'd rather work my hardest and know I gave it my all and THEN fail.
To become successful in anything, it boils down to the following three things.
Discovery: LEARN, research, find new techniques, and get inspired.
Effort: You've learned the techniques, and you're inspired. Now what? You put your own stamp on it. You find something you like and you try it out in your own way. Trial and error.
Ability: Become a master of your craft. Spend one hour each day (yes, even weekends) outside of your workday, learning and growing in what you're wanting to become an expert in
If you don't evolve, you fade away into obscurity.
Time to get started. Here's this week's episode of the Creative Entrepreneur.

[07:26] “if I said to you - Hey would you like to have some time with Frank Gehry to pick his brains about what makes him tick would you go out for dinner if it was only going to cost you a hundred bucks?” - Masterclass

[12:28] “becoming a master of your craft right? That does not happen Overnight it means that we must on a daily basis put at least one hour into those three categories and I'm telling you people I'm telling you for my very bones your game will improve!”
