Listen Today For,
  • What he was most wrong about.

“I thought the world was coming to an end…100% sure that no one would ever pay us again for anything literally for the next three months. Every time somebody gave me a thousand dollars, I was like, what is wrong with these people?”. Grant Cardone.

  • His reflections on 2008, and his biggest lesson from that time.

“I remember 2008, and man, I was in a different position because I was dependent upon one vertical.” Grant Cardone.

  • His number 1 takeaway from 2020.

“When the going gets tough, the Executives have to get better. Leadership has to be much greater.” Grant Cardone.

  • A principle to help you as you move forward into 2021.

“The second thing is just, whatever you lose, you need to figure out how to pick that up times something, in these other spaces.” Grant Cardone

• Grants initial response to the country shutting down and the decision he made that he wouldn’t make again.

“Looking in retrospect, I made some mistakes.” Grant Cardone.

Plus, You'll Also Hear,
  • How he led his team in a way that sustained energy and results.

“And basically the theme was ain’t no virus going to stop us. And we have had the best year we’ve ever had at this company”. Grant Cardone.

  • How he made sure that his team would be able to keep their jobs.

“As long as they do the right number, the right amount of outflow, the outflow is going to take care of the inflow.” Grant Cardone.

  • Why he thinks he’s been able to end the year with incredible results.

“I think what happens is people that are committed, find the best part of them when they get hit and, and their commitments get challenged.” Grant Cardone.

  • His approach to staying connected with his audience and market.

So as you know, we’ve been virtual for a long time and, we have been very heavy in social media, and zoom or any way to deliver to the client every day, whether we’re paid for that or, not has been a heavy emphasis. So all we’ve done really is not just double down on that, but 10 X on that.” Grant Cardone.

  • The three questions that he asked his worried customers (to keep them).
  • His vital approach to partnerships.
3 Things To Do If You’re In Trouble Right Now (In Grant's Words).

1) "Make a decision that you’re responsible for COVID. Not the virus. Wu Han is responsible for that, but you are responsible for the condition you were in that you’re losing your job, your job’s at risk, your retirement’s at stake, whatever the case is".

2) "In addition to your job, you have to start scaling the job out. You have to scale something indestructible… I don’t mean diversified. I mean, in spots that are indestructible".

3) "The third thing is that I would tell people: You have to get around people who are thinking big. Don’t try to do things alone. People that are suffering right now are mostly the desperadoes...You don’t want to do success alone”. Grant Cardone.

E-Commerce I talk about why 2020 year end review. This is a business of e-commerce Episode 153. Charles (00:17): Welcome to the business. E-Commerce the show that helps e-commerce retailers start launch and grow their e-commerce business. I mean, host house plus ski, and I'm here today to talk about some of the highlights do a review of 2020 at the end, we're going to show some of my favorite clips, different interviews, different things we've spoke about over 2020. And let's just review this year. 2020 has been one wild ride earliest. You had the coronavirus hit. The world has changed. E-Commerce forever. We've seen back orders and shipping delays. You've seen issues in e-commerce that have happened at a scale, never imagined before, but we have all seen an influx of new buyers, trying comments for the first time. People in quarantine have had no choice, but to shop online, they've tried e-commerce and these are folks who've never tried it before. And now all of a sudden their buyers, their uses of e-commerce. Charles (01:16): And I believe that they're here to stay retailers I've talked to have said 2020 has been the best shower for them. And I think this is going to the trend is going to continue. So we can go and talk about all the downsides of 2020, but also there's been some huge upsides and we should definitely acknowledge effort and know that this might be the new normal, and we might be living in a world that's more connected than ever. And we start to understand how a delay in shipping can really affect the delay, getting a product into the hands. I want to look back at some of the episodes, some of the interviews I've done the share and highlight some of the really cool folks that I've talked with. There's a lot of interesting things that have come up. So let's do a little clip episode and I hope everyone has a great new year's and look forward talking to everyone in 2021. So let's get onto a few clips. A few highlights from this year is episodes. Speaker 2 (02:12): Well, the first thing that I just want to kind of start with is the difference between e-commerce and M commerce. For those of you that are listening, that may not really have a definitive knowledge, but e-commerce is commerce conducted via the internet and commerce is business done on a mobile device. Speaker 3 (02:30): I recommend you go all in. So if you don't have money for the course, but you want to launch a product and you, you are short in cash because I had some savings. If you don't have it, don't buy a course, go to YouTube, check out. You can find all this information on YouTube. I'm the kind of person that needs guidance, especially in a start. So just like Instagram marketing, Facebook marketing, any other kinds of marketing, it's, it's a different beast. But has most similar benefits and this year has been as you know, unusual Charles (03:02): To say the least. Yeah, for me, if anything is just evolving. Speaker 4 (03:07): Well, the important thing is that the email is that especially the past 12 months with also what's been happening in the world, the way the email has been used with other channels has become a lot more important. So the likes of SMS, the likes of messenger using things like quizzes to pull any email addresses. Charles (03:24): So what you do is your photos or 3d renders for your listing need to be showing the value of the product, not just, Oh, mine's a great photo, but the differentiation you did with the product. Speaker 5 (03:39): So when you start looking at, I need to get into a warehouse I'm, you know, maybe. So I think the first thing you have to do is you have to identify what is the warehouse in e-commerce we can be dealing with people who are operating out of a basement,

The 10 Secrets To Creating Passive Income With Justin Donald
One of the biggest wake-up calls that came from dealing with my health crisis the past few years, was the fact that I did not have true passive income when I needed it most. I would have never imagined ever being in a place where I wasn’t able to physically work for more than two years. It was simply not a part of my reality. None-the-less, that’s exactly what happened. Dealing with a health crisis was hard enough. Adding financial stress on top of it made it infinitely more challenging. As you can imagine, I’ve sworn that I’ll never be in that place again. Over the past year, I’ve turned all of my focus towards the creation of truly passive income… This is money that doesn't come from a business, but from assets like dividend stocks and cash flow real estate. One of the people I’ve met along the way during this new journey, is our guest today, Justin Donald. Justin is a self-made millionaire and has turned himself into one of the smartest people I know when it comes to money and investing. He has also come to understand the difference between active income from a business, and lifestyle income from passive investments. Today he’s going to share his story with you, and how you can achieve actual financial freedom. He’s going to share how he got his start, what he invested in, and how he makes sure he never loses money on any of the investments he makes. If you want to learn more, he has a book called The Lifestyle Investor, which is excellent, and I’d highly recommend picking up a copy.
