Misguided Youth to Billion Dollar Empire

What does it take to transform your life? No, we’re not talking about losing a few pounds or spending less time on social media. We’re talking about a massive life transformation…going from misguided youth to building Billion Dollar Empire!

In the latest episode of the ManTFupTV podcast, we had the pleasure of interviewing Grant Cardone to learn how he embraced the ManTFup mentality to go from a troubled teen/young adult to successful entreprenuer, founding seven privately held companies and amassing a $5 billion portfolio of multifamily properties from scratch! He’s got one hell of a résumé, but here’s a little more about him:

  • Named the number-one sales trainer in the world and number one of the “25 Marketing Influencers to Watch in 2017” by Forbes.
  • Author of 8 sales and business books, two of them are New York Times bestsellers
  • International speaker, coach and consultant. His speeches have been listened to by hundreds of millions all over the world.
  • Real estate investor, disrupter, mogul and founder of Cardone Capital. His private equity firm offers funding opportunities to a variety of investors in overlooked markets.
  • Philanthropist and believer in giving back as well as paying it forward. Creator of the Cardone Foundation which provides mentoring and financial literacy education to at-risk people.

Our podcast typically focuses on the people in the middle, and Grant’s primary goal is to help folks just like you and I to “rise above outdated, unworkable middle-class myths and limitations in order to achieve true freedom for themselves and their families” (Cardone, 2022). His private equity firm allows normal people to invest in massive commercial real estate deals, a privilege typically only afforded to the wealthy. 

In a world where the playing field is not always level, Grant wants to help normal people follow in his footsteps and shoot for the moon. He’s created the “10X Movement” and “10X Rule” that says: “You should set targets for yourself that are 10X greater than what you believe you can achieve and…you should take actions that are 10X greater than what you believe are necessary to achieve your goals. The biggest mistake most people make in life is not setting goals high enough. Taking massive action is the only way to fulfill your true potential” (Clear, 2022)

Grant’s story is truly an inspiration for anyone that wants to improve their quality of life, and the fact that he doesn’t sugar-coat his story or his success is something that the ManTFup team really enjoyed during our podcast. This is one of our best episodes yet, so enjoy!
