James Pratt Opens Up on Hollywood and Cryptocurrency Records.



James Pratt Opens Up on Hollywood and Cryptocurrency Records.

James Pratt has had an extraordinary journey to success, whether you have seen his face onscreen as an actor in movies like On Halloween and Malibu Crush or come across his records in luxury real estate auctioneering, James is a rare talent who works very hard.

It’s been three months into 2022 and James has already been keeping busy, he won Best Director at 2022 the London Film Awards, was a finalist at the 2022 So Cal Film Festival in California and was a finalist for the 2022 REB Australia Awards.

With such a busy lifestyle we were lucky to get James to sit down with us and discuss his life, conducting the world’s first cryptocurrency auction, and why he prefers not to attend brunch.

EditorJames thank you for taking the time to talk with me,

What’s been the highlight of 2022?

That’s been a tough one to answer, so many great things have happened, If I’m honest I had a run in Hollywood over January where the whole week there were highlights, I was fortunate to win the London Film Awards, had some incredible sunset hikes at Runyon Canyon but also, I was able to help some people I knew needed help which was an awesome feeling.

When you are not living in Los Angeles, Bondi Beach was your home,

How would you describe it there?

Bondi Beach is a special place for me, I first moved there when I was 21, When I’m not living in Los Angeles it’s been home for me.

I would describe it as very beautiful and with an active lifestyle similar to Los Angeles. If you visit Bondi Beach, I highly recommend the Bondi to Coogee walk or a sunset surf. 

Away from acting and directing you started James Pratt Auctions Group, In April 2019 you were the first person in the world to auction cryptocurrency in real estate. How did that come about to you?

I had just won Australian Auctioneer of the Year and a close friend Lisa in Vancouver introduced me to some people who were high up in the Crypto and Blockchain field and wanted to sell luxury real estate using bitcoin, I remember from that one meeting we said let’s go for it and 5 weeks later we had the auction.

The day before the auction I think it sunk in most, I had some big hitters in USA tech, news, and even a Government overseas reach out to me and say, I hope it goes well and we will be watching.

Who has taught you the most in your life?

My Mum, I wasn’t lucky enough to have her around for a long time, however, I think the older I get the more I realize why I was taught what I was.

What advice do you have for people wanting to find business success?

You must cut out people who don’t run at your speed, it’s all about your speed if you have big dreams then be around people with big dreams if you want to succeed in business overseas align yourself with people with the same vision.

The other part of success is having a team, you can’t do it on your own and when you build your team, go with the smartest person, the person who’s most qualified not the person who you want to hang out with because business is not personal.

In a recent interview, you said you’d prefer to work than do brunch with a girlfriend? Can you elaborate on this?

I know the interview you are talking about (laughs) it’s true in a way there is a part of me that would prefer to work but I have been to some pretty bad brunches in the past.

Whether you eat in bed or not, a mattress cover is vital to protect your mattress from bodily fluids, skin flakes, spilled food, and drinks.

2. Lay A Firm Foundation

Having a base isn’t required for a memory foam mattress to operate well, but it will raise your bed to the right height. If you use memory foam mattresses, your base must be solid, level, and gap-free. Slats on a slatted base should be no more than 2.75 inches apart to prevent uneven mattress wear. If the slats are too far apart, you’ll need to buy extra or use a plywood board.

3. Prevent Pets And Children From Jumping

This counsel is direct. Pets who roam freely and lie on the bed stimulate the spread of germs, insects, and bacteria where you sleep. The perfect situation is when you meet a nice and cuddly bedmate. The worst-case situation is parasite eggs nearby about to hatch. It’s encouraged to ban youngsters under 8 from jumping on beds. Bouncing on the bed is not only hazardous, but it also damages the mattress. The memory foam is overworked by the quick up-and-down movements, which don’t prolong its life.

It’s common if you’ve heard of this advice, but have you ever put it to use? Rotate your memory foam mattress 180 degrees every season, starting right away.

It should be noted that certain high-end made in the USA mattress producers make mattresses that don’t need to be turned.

5. Make Your Mattress Clean

Your memory foam mattress may be protected against sweat, dust mites, and other allergies by vacuuming it at least twice a year. Start by sprinkling baking soda on your stripped mattress since the longer it remains there, the better. A few drops of essential oil are an optional addition. At some point, take out the vacuum and completely remove the baking soda using the upholstery attachment. The tufts, seams, and areas between the mattress and foundation are known to be dust mite havens.

6. Do Not Make Your Bed
