Recently, I was invited to participate in an upcoming Forbes interview on iBlab.
As part of that, I decided to invite sales expert, international speaker and best-selling author Grant Cardone who graciously agreed.
It was my first opportunity to meet the #1 sales expert in the world.
This was just around the time I was writing the viral post, Top 23 Most Influential People on the Value of Exceeding Expectations. In that post, I already had quotes from Daymond John, Mark Cuban, Elon Musk of Tesla, Ashton Kutcher, authors Simon Sinek, Seth Godin, Jeff Goins, Jason Fried plus a number of other very intelligent entrepreneurs.
So I asked Grant to participate with a quote of his own. He was all in.
This was exciting. Why?
- Grant is an internationally renowned business and sales expert
- Author of 4 sales and business books, including New York Times best seller “If You’re Not First, You’re Last” and Axiom Award Winner “Sell or be Sold”
- Regularly appears on Fox News, Fox Business, CNBC, and MSNBC, and contributes to Entrepreneur.com and Huffington Post
- Creator of customized sales training programs for Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, success-minded individuals and entrepreneurs
- Cardone and his companies have worked with Google, Morgan Stanley, Afflac, AutoTrader, Camping World, Web Filings, NOVA University, Wayne Huizenga School of Business, Kawasaki, Cenegenics, Reinhardt Food Service, Carrier HVAC, and many more.
Under a Microscope for the World to See
So, being the consummate entrepreneur and power player, Grant turned the tables on me!
As the host of Power Players, an online show that interviews business experts and brings them to world stage, Grant invited me to be a guest on his show which you see below.
I even checked out the podcast standings on iTunes (since it aired) and found it’s topping the charts:
I am quite honored Grant asked me to be on his show.
His energy is contagious, his passion evident.
We spoke about branding, what businesses do wrong, what I was doing when I was 6 years old, and how I became fascinated with branding and design.
The rest of the video really speaks for itself.
