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.
Lots of knowledge bombs in this one.
We all know I'm a technology nerd. So it's no surprise that I was thrilled to interview this week's guest, Ian Khan. This guy is the real deal. He's spoken at TedX multiple times, he's a Forbes contributor, and an author of some really amazing books, two of which are The Internet of Things, and a CNN Technology Expert.
Ian doesn't like hype. He likes authenticity, he likes reality - and I dig it.
An engineer by trade, and an educator at heart, he got his hands dirty in a lot of different industries and absorbed everything he could in the first 20 years of his career. One thing led to another (as things usually do on the path to success).
When asked about success, he says that his has come from putting himself in an uncomfortable place, time and time again.
If you stop growing and adapting to change, then everything is an enemy. We have to make change a friend. We should try to learn something new every day. Take one piece of technology that's been baffling you, take 30 days, and aspire to learn it.
We need to be curious. And we need to have some kind of formal education because the world is changing really fast. Absorb, be a sponge.
Life is full of failures, but success is right around the corner.
Really grateful for people like Ian who lead and make lasting and significant changes in our lives. There's a whole lot of value here, can't wait to hear what you think.
