Rank #2: 048: Darren Hardy & Grant Cardone
On Power Players the host, Grant Cardone, speaks with highly successful entrepreneurs, business people, authors and others that are awesome enough to share their time and wisdom with you.
Today Grant is speaking with Darren Hardy, a serial and sick entrepreneur that you can find at RollercoasterBook.com. He’s been connected and interviewed with Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, and more. You think money and start-up; this man has dropped in on them.
“Entrepreneurship has to be up and down.” – Darren Hardy
But before that, as a kid a 23-year old, single father in Albuquerque, New Mexico raised him. His father was a coach, and he raised him in the coaching style—like boot camp. His father had 2 other children with a new woman, but that woman never accepted Darren into the family.
He attributes his highly successful life to his highly dysfunctional upbringing.
When you achieved things, the sun set on your forehead; when you didn’t, it was a cold dark place to live. As a result of that is why Darren is a high-seeking achiever. His football coach father taught him discipline, consistency, hard work, the ability to beat anyone with hard work—but it didn’t work out for his brother.
Two words can change your life: time management.
Listen to the full episode to find out what Darren Hardy has to offer you.

American success is real but you have to go out and get it. Eric Thomas grinds to the grind. He says you must have Intrinsic motivation. Don’t grind for the wrong reason. Don’t make excuses. Outwork and out hustle people. Excuse are everywhere and people complain about not having enough support. Most people want the reward, but not grind. They want the lottery.
Shoot for the Nobel Prize. It is about changing people’s lives. Eric says the problem with education is that for many students there is no clear purpose, you go to school because you have to. Eric had to be rich because he decided he couldn’t be stuck at a job—he wants to own his time. It’s not just about having a nice house and nice cars, being rich allows Eric be able to buy his wife the expensive medication she needs.

Rank #15: 069: Brad Lea & Grant Cardone
Want a massive lesson from a dominator in the entrepreneurial world? Grant talks with people from the bottom to the top who have made it, but you may not know of them yet.
How do you do $1-million/month without traveling the world networking?
Brad’s story begins in a small town in Eugene, Oregon with a population of roughly 1500. He has been lower class, went to middle class and back then would have thought he was rich. Unfortunately his uncle had allowed their insurance at their bar to lapse and a patron had an accident; the lawsuit wiped them out financially and they went back to lower class… but kept their high class taste. This was at the age of 12.
Since he was a kid he was always interested in making money. He would buy packs of gum cheap at the store and sell it to kids for profit at school. This continued on through his adolescence into his adult years.
When he was a teenager he wanted a car and his father told him to go and earn his own.
Brad Lea’s company is a web-based interactive training and communication platform to create large-scale recurring revenue. His company, which he grew from the ground up, is now earning $20-million this year, and expanding every year.

Rank #17: 080: Andy Frisella & Grant Cardone
In this edition of Power Players Grant Cardone interviews Andy Frisella, a 36-year-old entrepreneur, innovator, and businessman who sells, manufactures & distributes fitness, nutrition, and weight loss products with sales in excess of $100 million a year. He got into the supplement business at 19 in Springfield, MO and started with $7 bucks on the first day his store opened. Things didn’t get much better as within the first two weeks the store was broken into and vandalized and even after 8 months they still struggled to just make $200 in a day. After grinding for 10 years he finally began to explode as he started mastering social media.
Andy talks about how success in fitness has many parallels to succeeding in business. 50% of stuff that happens isn’t going to be in your business plan. Get started on any plan rather than sit and analyze a good plan. He launched the MFCEO Project website and podcast in June 2015 as an outlet for his passion to motivate people to succeed in business and life. The big takeaway is that you have to move, there is no perfect plan but you have to adapt as you go. Creativity follows commitment.

Grant Cardone interviews Victor Young, owner of 3 car dealerships on the west coast of Florida—including a Lamborghini one, Executive Producer at Media & Management Global and CEO of Victor Young Productions and V. Young Enterprises. He works to teach others what he knows and shows people how to experience financial freedom. Victor believes everyone is born with greatness inside of them and it’s every good leader’s job to help them maximize it.
It all started with his father working and giving him an example of a work ethic. The youngest of nine kids, he learned early on to work like a man—not a boy. He knew there was a rate that money travels at. He was in a hurry to get his landscaping projects finished to move on to the next project. Today he reverse-engineers. When he understands how something works, he looks at a deal from reverse, finding the challenges and then fixes them before diving in. What you know you own. Don’t let others discount you by bringing your value down. He’s not defined by any one job, he’s an investor.
Victor Young is also known as the Daily Life Coach and this is what he says about money:
7 figures is enough to make you worried, 8 figures is starting to get comfortable, but it’s not until you get to 9 figures that you are a player on solid footing. Get your money right!
