Even the most successful people are insecure.

There is one guest I keep having on the podcast who is unlike any other.

He always says exactly what he thinks. He talks about money in a real, relatable way. And when he comes on the show, he shows his soft side and cries.

Yes, I'm talking about my good friend, Grant Cardone.

Grant was in town a couple of weeks ago and stopped by to record an episode with me. Since this is becoming a yearly tradition, we covered a lot of what he has learned in the last year as he has scaled his businesses. It was amazing to hear his perspective on what can be accomplished in a year (and a decade.)

CEO of CardoneCapital, international speaker, entrepreneur and author of The 10X Rule & creator of 21 best-selling business programs, Grant Cardone owns & operates seven privately held companies and a $1.5B portfolio of multifamily properties. Named the #1 marketer to watch by Forbes Magazine, Cardone is also the founder of the The 10X Movement & The 10 Growth Conference, the world’s largest business & entrepreneur conference.

I love pushing Grant to think bigger about his already huge goals. In this conversation, he opened up about how his wife Elena pushes him in this way, what his daughters have taught him about fun and love, and why insecurity is still a huge factor in his life.

If you're ready to expand your mindset and face your biggest fears, this conversation will take you there in Episode 905.
