An Interview with Sharran Srivatsaa, CEO of Kingston Lane - Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast
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.
His is a great story about insurmountable odds, optimism, and authenticity.
He was bullied throughout his entire childhood, he came to the United States with a check for the first year of school and a suitcase, and he built a company that grew by 5x in a few years.
After 39 one-on-one interviews and intense training he learned deal structure from the inside out at Goldman Sachs. He then took that knowledge to help build things
He's a builder; entrepreneurship is in his blood. And when he learned to not just solve problems but to solve problems for a profit, everything changed.
We even got a little vulnerable in our conversation and talked about the Imposter Syndrome. It haunts entrepreneurs who have a difficult time internalizing success, but Sharran says it also keeps us humble and kind. And kindness wins.
Another thing that wins: cadence - showing up every single day, putting yourself out there. In short, show up.
Hearing stories from the great entrepreneurs of our time has me feeling super thankful. I hope you'll find time to listen to this one, it'll be worth it.
