How to Build a Multi-Billion Dollar Empire


We all want to be successful. 

Some of us even want to be wealthy. 

Some think that to achieve success they need to become someone different.

What if you could achieve your goal just by being yourself? 

Perhaps the change isn’t who you are but what you are doing. Maybe it’s your habits or a lack of hunger. 

The important thing is to separate yourself from the pack. 

But where does the mentality of a winner truly come from?  

On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about being a bull in your profession and being a boss that everyone wants to work with, with one of the world’s leading businessmen in hospitality and sports: Tilman Fertitta.

"It's nice to be important, but it's important to be nice." @TilmanJFertitta  

Tilman Fertitta is an accomplished businessman, entrepreneur, author, and television personality. He is the chairman, CEO, and sole owner of Fertitta Entertainment, one of the largest restaurant corporations in the U.S. He also owns the NBA’s Houston Rockets.

Tilman teaches us that the things we want are within our grasp. We have to be the bull in the room and learn how to take what we want. 

So get ready to learn how to let go of fear on Episode 859.
