  • What he was most wrong about.

“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.
