To really understand how an entrepreneur makes their way through the industry you have to see just how their mind works. Operating as a freelance entrepreneur takes a ton of work, effort, and innovation. You can’t just stumble your way into becoming a longstanding member of the community. That is why we are so impressed by the work of tech investor Eric Pulier. Pulier first showed up in L.A. in 1991 and since then he has been steadily improving his work. We dove into Pulier’s mindset in order to get a better look at how he operates, what lead him to the industry, and how he works within the confines of being a family man.
If you want to break it down to the bottom, Eric Pulier believes in the power of good rest. This can become increasingly difficult when you have to tackle the prospect of four children running amok every morning in your home. Eric Pulier still focuses on his children and as a result he has to really work with his schedule. Pulier says that he likes to get up early in order to have some quiet time in the morning. During this period he reads up on new trends, emails, and other things related to his business. After that he deals with his children and then gets back to his list of objectives. Pulier says, “I believe in delegating uninterrupted time to each task that needs my attention that day and do my best to stick to my schedule.”
After getting to focus, Pulier takes a no nonsense approach to his work. Research establishes the foundation by which Pulier does all of his work and he has a particular process as to how he approaches it. Pulier says, “I try to write down key words of ideas and inspirations that might hit at any time of day or night.” Pulier goes on to admit that he’ll let an idea sit in the back of his head in order to really let it grow and set up roots. Pulier’s approach is clearly working, as his success with XPrize can indicate.
