How to Overcome Professional Insecurity / Peter Lorimer - The Real Estate 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.

I'm the single largest critic when it comes to myself and my business. My very first thoughts of the day are not always positive.

I know I put positivity and excitement into the universe and come across as being pretty secure. To be quite honest, I'm probably one of the most insecure people you'll meet. But I flip the script of negativity in my brain and I charge forward.

Do you love challenging the system? Do you think differently? Are there naysayers in your life? I get it. It's hard. But, in my opinion - you can't be too creative.

I see fear driving real estate. Just because you're the only one around you that feels this way does not mean you're wrong.

There's mad respect out there for those that are willing to have a crack at it. If you want to be different, be different. Let's do it. Check out this week's episode of The Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast.

 

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

[03:00] “as my mate Gary Vee says: “our business is already stepped against us” so if we go in there with the attitude that we may lose we’re done, we have lost the game”

[05:01] “in order for us to be successful we have to treat it like an athlete treats their career, we got to work at it every single day and when we're not in front of clients we got to be learning our tray.”

[05:34] “Every failure brings us closer to a triumph right if it was easy everybody would do it.”

[06:54] “I am going to give it everything I've got to be successful in the music industry otherwise I'm going to kick myself for the rest of my life, if I give it my all and I fail, then at least I know I've done it I've maxed it out, and if it doesn't work it doesn't work.”

[07:16] “everybody wears a vanilla shroud because I think they’re too afraid to kind of pop out and show that personality in case somebody doesn't like them.”

[08:46] “when you do things that are different other people feel uncomfortable around you”

[09:21] “imagine just how beautiful it tastes when you do it your way and you win”

The Power To Take Control of Your Life And Career / Peter Lorimer - The Real Estate 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.

Life is full of hardship. I recently went through an extremely difficult and emotional hardship. I learned something that has been incredibly instrumental for me in life and in business, and in efforts to be of service to you, I want to share.

Acceptance: life on life's terms, and how to turn it into your advantage.

When my lovely mother passed away, I found myself at a crossroads. I've been here before. I could be a victim, or I could be of service. I decided to remove what I wanted from the situation and put into the situation what I thought she would've wanted. I came away with it with absolutely no regrets. My focus was not on me - it was on my mother and what she would have wanted.

Surrender.

It sounds weak, but it's actually the opposite. When you accept what is happening, you can quit manipulating and you are able to have a clarity of purpose. You can let go of expectations.

When you are absolutely of service, it's easy to make the right decisions.

The game has changed. Real estate is now 49% transactional and 51% service. As a new agent, I learned to remove my expectations and made it entirely about being of service to my clients. Worked well then, and it works well now.

They're not going to remember much except for the way you make them feel. Let's dive in, friends. Here's this week's episode of the Real Estate Entrepreneur Podcast.

 

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

[06.53] “I can be a victim or I can go into ultimate ninja service”

[07:35] “at the end of the day we are masters of our own destiny and I think that's the type of entrepreneurial spirit that I tend to and I like to attract” 

[08:26] “I was just a spectator and I was there to ultimately, and in its purest essence be of service”

[10:54] “It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it.” 

[12:04] “people don't wanna work with a robot they wanna work with someone that is empathetic to their needs”

[16:29] “when I get out of my own way, when I stay out with my expectations, when I stay in service, the Universe just has this wonderful way of making everything to play out perfectly”

5 Secrets To Finding Amazing Mentors / Peter Lorimer - The Real Estate 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.

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
Seth Godin
Casey Neistat
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.

 

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

 

[02:07] “for me success isn't something that necessarily I created,  success is me following the footsteps of people that have done a very similar thing to what I done, before”

[02:23] “having someone go forth before you, is incredibly valuable”

[09:45] “getting shut down is part of the gig, if people say no, move on to someone else”

[13:30] “when I have had to make business decisions I imagine Richard Branson, is sitting across the table from me”

Music Producer to Real Estate Powerhouse-Peter Lorimer | Super Agents Live Podcast

This chat with Super Agents Live turned into one of my favorites.

I talk a lot about failing fast - giving it my all until I hit a brick wall. How long is long enough to try? Let's turn the tables on that question a bit. It's less about how long you try and much more about consistency. I see people try something for a bit, get discouraged when it doesn't work quickly, and move on. I wonder how many beautiful successes could have happened if we'd all just stick it out.

Everyone thought I was looney when I left the music industry. But for me, it was a lightbulb moment. Not only was the writing on the wall as far as the future of the music business, but the lifestyle was unhealthy. I got sober and left.

It was a moment of clarity for me. I needed to do things my way.

I did not leave empty-handed, though. I left with a practiced trend-spotting muscle, a clear vision for who my tribe was, and an even stronger desire to build something.

I jumped into the white space. I followed my gut, ran hard after my tribe, kept my head down, and worked.

Failure is a big part of my story - I always believe that it's imminent. I believe that what's supposed to happen, will. Including both failures and successes. I'm detached from the outcome. I do things because it's the right thing to do. That's it.

My biggest piece of advice: You are the product, not the brokerage.

Own who you are, put in the work, and quit obsessing over the outcome.

How to Future Proof Your Business and Guarantee Success / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

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.

Today's podcast is about goals - sure. But more than that, it's about preparing your mind, body, and soul for future business.

Oh, and the evil spiritual navigator that can easily take us off course.

You've probably guessed it - the evil navigator is fear. Once fear gets his hands on the wheel, you can bet your ass it's going to end badly. Whereas if we proactively set goals - business and personal - and keep negativity at bay, the world really is our oyster. So let me break down my thoughts for you in another rousing episode of The Creative Entrepreneur podcast.

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

[02:09]“My future actions will not be determined by fear, only by faith fueled by experience”

[06:08] “Goal setting for me Isn't just a yearly thing, it's a weekly sometimes a daily, a weekly, a monthly, a quarter, every six months, a year in life goals”

[06:29] “when we track our goals which aren't necessarily financial, our business improves cause there's something pulling us along”

[11:27] “When its a tangible goal and its not too ethereal, I believe it's easier to hit, and what that does is it pulls you up a little bit of a hill”

[14:23] “all I'm gonna do is bust my ass so that I can achieve certain spiritual, financial goals that I want to share with my family”

Netflix Real Estate Star and Super Agent is Changing the Game. An Interview with Peter Lorimer | Top Agents Playbook Podcast with Ray Wood

Fewer agents, more marketers. That's what Ray Wood and I chatted about. (Among many other things.)

How did it all begin? I knew it was time. I knew I needed to jump all in. And, soon, I knew I had to do it my way. By that, I mean creativity over corporate. I'm not driven by money, I'm driven by goals.

My formula for success: never sit still. Always strive to evolve--however incrementally.

I grew my trend-spotting muscle (and you can grow yours, too). It started in music as I obsessed over the nuances of EM. And now today, I watch endless videos and follow all the big names in real estate and marketing. I drink from the firehouse of knowledge every day.

My big prediction for the real estate industry: It's either corporate, traditional, or boutique brands. In the next 5 years, it will be the day of the boutique and the super-corporate.

You are the brand. Marketing, branding, and prospecting. It all comes back to trust. And that happens in person.

This was a good one y'all. Listen in for more.

Thanks for being part of the rebellion and for being here ❤️ Pete

Secrets to Crush Fear and Win at Real Estate / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

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.

Today’s podcast I lovingly call my “Jump Out Of A Plane And Find A Parachute On The Way Down” Episode.

The old adage of fear vs faith is something of which I have long subscribed. I am notorious for only being able to get 65% of the way there with logic, the other 35% being a massive leap of faith. We are here to create and take risks in business.

In this episode, I will go over a few of my theories on how to do just that (along with a few of my favorite anecdotes). So without further ado, it’s time to take a leap into another episode of The Creative Entrepreneur podcast.

 

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

[02:00] “The purpose of life is to create a message which when matched with purpose creates impact”

[02:47] “If our purpose is clear, if our message is defined then our impact is Inevitable”

[04:07] “ If I don't leap first if I don't have faith that I'm gonna  succeed, what happens is, the fear can come in and then you can restrict me” 

[04:53] “Possibility plus risk plus commitment delivers success or creativity whichever you prefer”

[08:38] “Every moment of your existence you’re either moving toward your goal or moving away from it” - Peter Lorimer

How to Crush Real Estate Massively At The End Of The Year / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

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.

A lot of people are talking about what's going to happen next in the economy and in this industry. I believe that we are nearing the end of this insane growth and closing in on some contractions across all industries.

So, roll up your sleeves and dig in. This is the golden period.

One of the biggest enemies in business is negativity. It's like a predator. The moment you shut your eyes, it attacks. It'll always be around, so keep moving.

Here are some practical ways to squeeze every last bit out of the rest of the year:

👉 Treat each day like it's the day before going on vacation. Think about how much you squeeze into that day. Tasks, errands, work. Every hour you utilize propels you forward. It's about time compression. What can you pack into an hour?

👉 Reach out to your clients. Stop automating things. Technology is a tool, but you have to get personal with your clients. Nothing replaces real contact.

👉 Show your client base the 360-degree view of you.

Let's make the most out of these next several weeks, friends. Here's this week's episode of the Creative Entrepreneur Podcast.

 

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

[03:39] “the biggest enemy of business development, in my opinion, is negativity”

 

[04:35] “Negativity is absolutely a predator that waits for the gazelle with the one key leg to run by, and when it finds that gazelle it will devour it.”

 

[06:17] “treat each day like it's a day before I'm going on vacation”

 

[07:36] “time compression what can I pack into an hour that would normally take four and then multiply 10,000 throughout the year”

 

[08:13] “ if you automate things you are automating your demise”

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.

Yes, it’s that time people! We are at the last 120 days of the year. It barely feels like we are out of the summer and already the holidays are looming upon us. In my podcast today I will go over my strategies and techniques to help you squeeze every last bit of juice out of the last four months of the year. This is a time when we can really take advantage of our industry as many tend to kick back and enjoy all the parties and revelry that the end of the year brings. I have always made a point of putting my foot to the gas and cranking up the heat to scooping and catch a business that others lead on the table so let’s chop it up in another episode of the creative entrepreneur podcast.

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

[02:24] “What is happening today in your pipeline represents the work you did 6 months ago.” - Unknown

[03:13] “when I have a healthy and balanced family life it makes my work life so much better" - Peter Lorimer

[09:10] “this chunk of the year is prospecting gold” - Peter Lorimer

[10:12] “Nothing says you don't care about that more than using a generic message” - Peter Lorimer

Top 5 Tips To Avoid Crushing Professional Burnout / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

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.

Burnout, one of the most paralyzing things in business. It happens to us all (especially in real estate). This podcast covers my top 5 tips for avoiding it - before it takes over.

👉 Prioritize your workload the night before. No one likes waking up to a mountain of work, especially when it all seems equally important.

👉 Work with purpose (by doing things like getting rid of time vampires, A.K.A., toxic clients).

👉 Give away everything you've learned--without prejudice and expectation.

👉 Exercise. (Admittedly, my least favorite.) It's my therapy and making it a priority will immensely reduce stress.

👉 Don't worry about the results. Ultimately, you don't have control over what happens anyways. You simply need to work as hard as you can and let go of the results. Remove the notion that you have control.

Friends, burnout is lurking behind every corner. Follow these five tips, and you'll kick it to the curb. Join me for this week's episode of The Creative Entrepreneur to hear more.

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

[02:37] “at the end of the day we're not gonna get to everybody most likely, we have to get to the people that we need to get to” 

[05:22] “toxic clients will be a time vampire, on you and they will be incredibly demanding they will make you feel crappy you will not enjoy your job you'll begin to hate life and then that stress will build up.

[06:08] “give everything away that you have learned without prejudice and without expectation”

[09:19] “I don't go to the gym for my body, I go to the gym for my mind.”

[10:02] “We are not in control of people places and things, all we are in control of Is us.”

How To Succeed Massively At Real Estate And Stay On Top / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

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.

The essence of relevancy involves staying apprised of the current happenings. Meaning, you have to know what's going on all the time. It takes daily work--we should always be evolving and changing.

Because, if we aren't moving forward--we're moving backward.

To stay relevant, you should constantly be working to know every piece of your craft. Learn and dive all in with it. Next, ACT. Don't react. People hire you for your value-add, and as a real estate agent, a big piece of that is predicting.

Take control of your marketing. If you aren't spending money online, carving out your digital identity - it's a matter of time before you become irrelevant. Ultimately, it's about getting in front of people. And creating content for others about you gives them context when they actually do meet you IRL.

The fundamental cornerstone of everything: Give it all away. Freely. It works better than anything you could imagine (and it's the right thing to do).

It's been the biggest gamechanger in my entire career. Give it away, with your spin on it.

Own who you are. Ok, let's get into it, friends. Here's this week's episode of The Creative Entrepreneur.

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

[03:50] “handing over our imprint to other people to do it, handing over our marketing, you know, our footprint, our digital identity to someone else fills me with absolute terror”

[04:59] “you got to be able to predict what's coming, your clients are counting on you to be able to predict what is coming down the pipe”

[06:28] “if you are not spending money online carving out your digital identity I believe it is a question of time before you become irrelevant.”

[10:24] “helping someone paying it forward whatever the buzz phrase is not only does it work, my God it works better than anything you could imagine! But on top of that,  It's the right thing to do it makes me feel good it makes me feel like I have a happier life”

12 Rounds With Tyson / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

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.

Your first two years in real estate are going to be awful. You're going to be full of doubt and fear. And every time you pick yourself back up, you'll get punched back down.

For at least a year.

For twelve months, expect to get knocked down. Which is why I always recommend that aspiring new agents stash at least a year's worth of living expenses away before jumping in.

You'll likely eat ramen noodles for an entire year. I did. Nevertheless, you have to make it 12 months before quitting. It's a benchmark. I've seen it happen time and time again - agents want to quit so badly, and right around that year mark, they land their first deal.

You will hear a lot of negativity - namely from yourself. Block it out. Expect the negativity to become fainter, and get prepared for doubt to show up. But don't give up.

Because at 12 months, the seeds that you planted for a year begin to turn into sprouts and grow. And then you have a client base to nurture. Don't lose faith.

To get yourself through that dark first year, set goals. And maybe not actual dollar amounts. Try setting goals like "get out of debt" or "go to Disney World", etc.

You want to lie down at night knowing you squeezed every bit out of the day that you could. So, even when you get knocked down, get back up and keep punching.

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

[03:08] “your first year to two years is gonna be like getting in the ring with Mike Tyson you are gonna  have your head smashed in

[04:13] “Look at your first two years as an apprenticeship and try and have at least one year's money stashed away.”

[06:46] “you just got to last 12 rounds which equates to 12 months right? You gotta last for 12 rounds because if you don't last 12 rounds Tyson's gonna win the match”

The Secret Sauce / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

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.

You can reset your mind every. single. day. And it starts with gratitude.

I'm a chronic optimist. Of course, darkness comes. That's why this is a skill.

My early days of sobriety taught me to have gratitude. To love and be grateful for what's in front of me.

Because life is full of surprises, some days start on a negative foot. So this next tip will give you the tools and mindset you need to power through that doom and gloom that happens from time to time. Start your day with writing down 10 things you are grateful for. This will reset your mind. The fact that you woke up in the United States of America will give you a handful of items right off the bat.

We work as hard as we can, going in one direction with patience and energy and gratitude.

It's a choice. It doesn't always come easy. And the reality is, you'll have adversity. Moments will be scary. But remember this: adversity is the cornerstone of success. If it were easy, everyone would do it.

Starting out in real estate is grueling. When my wife and I started out, we didn't take a breath. We worked HARD. Why? It has little to do with money. We love what we do, we love those that we work with, and we ultimately and absolutely love our children.

I know what I want to see when I look back at my life. I want to see more time with my family.

Remaining in optimism can be tough. But we have to stay in it.

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

[04:00] “starting your day by writing down 10 things that you are grateful for will reset your mind”

[06:17] “waiting for divine intervention doesn't mean kicking back home on your sofa watching Netflix, smoking a doobie!”

[07:17] “adversity is the cornerstone of success if it was easy everyone would do it”

[09:49] “I am lucky that I see my children all the time, I make sure that I have a schedule where I can have dinner with them seven days a week”

[11:25] “Negative thoughts are like bullies, if you listen to them, they kind of got you cornered!”

Individuality is the Key to Success | Agents of Compass Podcast

Ivan and I had a candid conversation on Agents of Compass. I get pretty stoked when I talk about things like authenticity, boutique real estate, social media, and staying out of expectations. We covered all of that and then some.

Starting out in real estate was brutal (I'd been licensed for about 5 years before I even tapped into some big name clients). One of the best things I ever did for myself and my career was divorce myself from expectations. I learned to bust my ass and not worry about the results. I figured out how to do that and have never looked back.

Social media brings me about 90% of my business. Social media = prospecting. First and foremost, you must be authentic. Reality check, friends. People will ALWAYS smell bullshit.

The only thing worse than not doing social media is doing vanilla social media. That tells your consumers you don't care, and they'll move on to someone who does. The resurgence of boutique real estate companies (and other companies) is a rebellion against vanilla.

Other points from this episode:

  • Individuality. All agents need to take charge of their own digital identity.

  • Toxic clients. I don't want to work with people that don't want to work with me. I'll never compromise who I am to work with someone.

  • Trade secrets. Knowledge is never, ever owned. It's borrowed, and it's our duty to hand it off.

Give this podcast a listen and get fired up with me about staying uncomfortable, authentic, and out of expectations.

Setting Intentions / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

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.

I love digital. But I'm about to bust out something analog.

Let's dive into how I set intentions. I've tried every note-taking app that exists, but honestly, what works for me is (drumroll, please) a pen and paper.

I can keep a lot in my head, but it's incredibly powerful to write something down. Before becoming a real estate agent, I wrote down my goals. They were lofty goals, such as becoming the number one real estate agent in my area, getting married, etc. I lost the book. Several years later, we found it and lo and behold, I'd met almost all of them.

Grab your notebook and pen, write down how many transactions you want to do, how much money you want to make, your health goals, your travel goals, etc., etc.

If you can't handle something as archaic as pen and paper, I love Trello. Either way, the most important takeaway is this: set your intentions now for the rest of this year and the year to come. The longer you delay, the longer you wait to get started on the path.

Give this podcast a listen and take the rest of the year by storm.

Golden Nuggets From This Episode:

 

[03:33] “There is something incredibly powerful about writing goals on paper”

[05:12] “I'm famous for saying paper is dead, well paper is dead, unless it's in a Moleskine”

[06:41] “if you set your intentions now the giant wheels in the machinery of the Universe will begin to run the cogs together to enable that path to be opened, the longer you delay the longer you wait to walk down that path.”

The Business Of Short-Term Rental With Peter Lorimer from the Netflix Original Series Stay Here

I recently had the honor of being interviewed by Heather Bayer on her podcast, Vacation Rental Success.

We talked about my jump from the music business to real estate in LA.

We also dove into Stay Here.

One interesting thing Heather brought up was the difference between Stay Here and other home-makeover shows. Stay Here is primarily business/marketing/design focused, but we also consciously left out any mid-show drama (hot water heater breaking, roof leaks, etc), because we really desired to create an entertaining show that shared information based on our expertise.

If you've been around, you know that giving away is part of my niche. And that's why the short-term rental space and Stay Here fits so well into what I do. It gives to both parties involved.

And to that note, here are some helpful tips covered in this episode:
- If you are an owner with a limited budget, focus on cleanliness above all.
- To add to the above, use purposefully chosen (preferably new) furniture
- 🚫 old linens 🚫old furniture
- Experience is at least 50% of this business
- You HAVE to have your own social media profile for your STR, and the name should explain the property
- Just starting out? Where should you buy? Buy the property surrounded by the greatest amenities.
- Who is your target market? Listen to your space. Your space will usually dictate the crowd.

Finally, I'll leave you with this: Go after your niche and go after it hard.

Thanks for being part of the rebellion and for being here ❤️ Pete

Kill Vanilla / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

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.

You can always count on this: things change.

There's nothing to fear. We are no longer at the mercy of traditional ways to get our business discovered. Outbound engagement is your tool for staying on top. It's no secret that I prefer video, but there are plenty of other formats to get yourself in front of your tribe.

If you don't love being in front of the camera, get behind it. Create vlogs and documentaries that give your audience a 360-degree view of who you are.

Love to write? Don't forget blogs.

Love to talk? Maybe podcasts are your thing.

Either way, you have to start showing people who you are, because commonalities create connections (read: running towards your tribe).

Vanilla is pervasive, especially in corporate industries. That's okay, though. That means we can stand out; more business for us.

Don't have the numbers you want? Grind. Get up early and work late. And rest in this... it'll all change soon.

 

 

Golden Nuggets From This Episode: 

[03:33] “proactive agents or proactive business owners are the people who have outbound strategies”

[04:11] “Those of us that take control of our professional destiny's and don't just leave it in the hands of others, in my opinion, will prevail, this is like a Game of Thrones episode!” 

[09:07] “The world has completely changed, so surely so should our strategies”

[11:44] “so the three things that drive the real estate industry: interest rates, buyers, and sellers, everything is lined up. The planets aligned to make the glory years. For those of you who are in the industry now who don't have the numbers that you want, this is the time to grind.”

[12:36] “change always comes! It will go from good to bad and then bad to good and vice-versa”

The Art Of Execution / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

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.

Stay in action and stay in execution.

How do I do this? Admittedly, blindly. I do the next thing on my list. Rinse, wash, repeat. Don't overthink it. Don't let opinions get in the way.

Speaking of opinions, when dealing with clients, remove ALL opinion of the other person. Remove the hierarchy and treat everyone the same. In sales, it's one's natural instinct to think about how much you'll get from someone and in turn, that affects your opinion of them. Don't do this. You never know what's going to happen, and your service to someone else should never be affected by the potential dollar amount you hope to receive in return.

And here's the key (to all business, IMHO): stay out of expectations. Remove all of them.

Get your mind right and show up--that's the meat of it.

Don't get caught up in these two words: winning and losing. All winning means is that you're better at not quitting. And on that note, we should never need someone else to give us a high five.

Need to get your mind ready for action? Here's this week's episode of the Creative Entrepreneur.

Golden Nuggets from this episode:

The More I Know, The Less I Know / Peter Lorimer - The Creative Entrepreneur Podcast

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.

It's a medical fact that we only use about 5% of our brains.

All we need to see is what's right in front of us and have faith we will make it the rest of the way. A lot of people look for certainty. For me, the greatest decisions I've made in my life were based on faith and intuition (and my streetwise gut).

We must learn to trust our intuition. Base your intuition on your gut (not your head). Your head will talk you out of things and introduce fear. Your intuition will take you places you've never been before.

It may just be less about certainty, and more about intuition.

The more I learn, the less I know.

Let's go. Here's this week's episode of The Creative Entrepreneur.

Golden Nuggets from this episode:

 

[05:39] “we intuitively can figure out what's going on” 

 [06:41] “We must trust our intuition, that doesn't mean we have to be scared of everyone, it means don't base our intuition on fear it means to base our intuition on the gut!”

 [06:52] “If I had listened to my head, I would never left England”

 [07:22] “It is a medical fact that we only use about 6 ounces of our brain; that's like you know half an avocado”

 [07:32] “95% of our brain is not used yet the other side of our brain really really reacts in an intuitive way”

 [09:07]  “the greatest decisions I have made in my life every single one of them was based on faith and intuition and my streetwise gut”
