Lawrence Bender in Film Making

Lawrence Bender is most recognized for his production role(s) in many of the award-winning Quentin Tarantino films. Alongside these famous movies are also TV shows and many other films covering a variety of genres, all of which have made a successful impact on the film industry. According to TVguide.com (2018), Bender has occupied a producer role in 21 movies/TV shows and has been the executive producer in 7 more of these works. He was born October 17, 1957, in The Bronx, New York and grew up in New Jersey (IMDb.com, 2018). He was originally an aspiring dancer after graduating college with a civil engineering degree. However, this path was quickly put to a stop after he suffered an injury. Fortunately, the aftermath of this event was when his career in production began to blossom.

Bender currently holds three Oscar nominations under his belt: Best Motion Picture of the Year (2010) for Inglourious Basterds, Best Picture (1998) for Good Will Hunting, and Best Picture (1995) for Pulp Fiction (IMDb.com, 2018). It comes as no surprise that Pulp Fiction appears as one of his nominations, as it is my favourite film he has produced. Personally, I am a huge fan of this film’s elements of dark/vulgar humour and seemingly random events that brilliantly lead to plot twists that I would have never been able to predict ahead of time.

Lawrence Bender has definitely made his mark in the film industry due to his success in producing some of the world’s most iconic works. I know for certain that if his role was absent during the formation of these movies, they would not have become as well-known as they currently are. He serves as an inspiration to many film students aspiring to make it in the industry as producers.

Gaining Insight into Entrepreneurship

There are certain traits that entrepreneurs possess. However, most of these traits are acquired, and still more are common sense. Many people cannot adhere to the qualities that will put them in a more favorable position to succeed because it involves handling money correctly. Additionally, these traits produce success without consideration of age. This means that people at any age can imbibe this ethos and become successful enough to get their own Bloomberg profile much sooner than their peers, but this does not mean that it happens quickly by any measure.

The mistake that many people make in the beginning is ascribing to methods of dealing with money that do not produce wealth like saving in order to save. Saving money should be done in order to make the money grow. This is achieved in two ways. First, the savings should be used to invest. This is the best way to grow money and produce wealth. This wealth can be produced without heavy risk also. An example of this is saving money in order to purchase a rock solid franchise. The second method by which money can be saved once wealth is beginning to build is to save the money in a place in which it earns interest but cannot be touched. The second method has an alternate benefit. 

Because the money is out of reach, the entrepreneur must continue to produce. This technique circumvents the complacency that sometimes occurs as success begins. Additionally, organize businesses and business efforts in order to make the money do much of the work. This frees the entrepreneur to seek other investment opportunities or to solve problems within previous investments. Residual sources of income that may have required an investment but that does not require effort from the entrepreneur is the formula for wealth. However, a very real barrier will be information. Because of this, entrepreneurs should seek the advice of successful people. A personal relationship is not necessary because a book or even a series of interviews can achieve this.

With entrepreneurs like Marc Sparks, there are multiple methods to gain insight from his wisdom. Marc Sparks reveals much of the things that many successful people like to keep secrets. One of these secrets is gaining access to the winners personally. The type of information that is gained from these professionals will not only reveal much information, the information that they will deliver can save a young entrepreneur many years and much tribulations in learning. Experience is not the best teacher, someone else’s experience is the best teacher. Sparks’ initiatives provide this shortcut to young entrepreneurs with start-ups. Dreams are a significant part of becoming successful, but they are a beginning before the work begins.
