Greetings and welcome to the Real Estate 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 week's podcast is about surrounding ourselves with knowledge. If we want to grow, we have to rub shoulders with those that are more successful than we are.
I have to learn. I may have dropped out of high school., but today I drink from the firehose of life.
It's my duty to learn. And the best way to do that is by finding a mentor.
When I was getting sober, I stopped spending time with people that were distracting me from sobriety. The same is true in business. Spend time with people who will push you towards your goal. People you can learn from and be inspired by.
BUT HOW, PETE?
Tip #1 - Ask one person out for coffee each week. The fear with this is that they're too busy or don't want to go. 95% of them will say yes.
Tip #2 - Once a month (or more), take someone that you admire out for lunch.
Tip #3 - Really good mentors are super busy, so you probably need more than one.
There are tons of mentors that will never see your face. They'll mentor you in the form of websites, books, podcasts, and videos.
Meet some of my favorite mentors that I don't actually meet with:
Tim Ferriss podcast
Hack the Entrepreneur podcast
Bigger Pockets podcast
Ultimately, help others. Give everything you know away. And dedicate yourself to consistent learning. On that note, let's get to it in this week's episode of the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast.
