Welcome to episode 007 of The School of Greatness.
Grant Cardone is the James Bond of business growth and sales. He’s a New York Times Best Selling Author and unbelievably motivational individual.
The last time I interviewed Grant he blew me away with his passion, positive mindset, and persistent pursuit of greatness.
Since then, I feel like he’s been literally everywhere I look online, so I wanted to learn how he does it, and share with you his strategies.
The School of Greatness Podcast
Each time I do a new episode, I feel more and more alive. I don’t know if it’s the guests I’m brining on or if it’s your feedback and excitement. Either way, I’m going to keep pumping more episodes out for you each week (and don’t worry, the female guests are coming soon!)
Before I share with you what you’ll learn in this episode, I want to talk about the awesome partnership we’ve developed with Onnit.com. They are sponsoring the show and myself as a handball athlete. The sport of team handball in the USA is really unknown, so this is one small step in my efforts to get the word out about this sport I love.
They have some amazing products, but there’s two in the first few minutes of the podcast I talk about that really helped me perform at a greater level during a recent handball tournament. Tune in to listen to what happened and why I think you should check them out.

Now let me talk about Grant Cardone! Grant is a guy who has been there and done it before. He’s a best selling author of:
- The 10x Rule: The Only Difference Between Success and Failure
- Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life
- The Closer’s Survival Guide
- If You’re Not First, You’re Last: Sales Strategies to Dominate Your Market and Beat Your Competition
He talks a lot about sales strategies and how to dominate your market; how to grow your business, how to be successful and the difference between the mindset of a winner over a loser.
In this show you’ll see some similarities in the struggles between Graham Holmberg (from episode 005) because they both have a dark past that they went down. They both made a lot of mistakes and were having serious challenges early in their life. You’ll notice that both Grant and Graham made a decision to make a shift in their life and seek greatness.
