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.
When I was a little boy in England, my father said, "If you can find a job that you like, you are going to be happier than 98% of the population."
Here's what I see happening over and over again with young real estate agents and young men and women in other careers - they become miserable under the pressure to succeed; they become slaves to their careers and lifestyles. Why? Because they're rooted in the results. Friends, we can't control the outcome. The secret is learning to be happy, whatever the outcome. The ONLY thing you have control over is your actions.
There's freedom in this. It's about waking up every single day, busting our asses, and staying out of the results.
Let's get into this, friends. Here's this week’s episode of The Creative Entrepreneur.
