Who is Grant Cardone and what is his net worth?… – The US Sun
GRANT Cardone is not afraid of sharing his extraordinary story, from addition to billionaire.
After nearly dying from drugs, the young man turned his life around.
Grant Cardone is a professional sales trainer and a speaker on leadership, entrepreneurship, real estate investing, marketing, social media, and finance.
He was born on March 21 1958 in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
His stockbroker dad Curtis died of a heart attack when Grant was only ten, but he said his father had a huge influence on him.
Grant's mother raised seven children alone.
As a youngster, Grant explained that he started smoking marijuana before moving on to stronger drugs including amphetamines, barbiturates, cocaine and crack.
He overdosed three times, and battled addiction for nine years.
"Drugs would become a massive, massive problem, a daily problem for me between the ages of 16 and 25," he told NarcoNon.
He tried to get clean for several years, and failed. It wasn't until he had a run in with his mother that Grant entered a rehab facility.
Grant started a career in sales – which he initially hated – but said he threw himself in the role and got extremely good at it.
He has since written eight books, runs over 13 business programmes and manages seven companies. He is know for his 10X Growth conference.
The New York Times best-selling author's net worth is estimated to be roughly $2.6 billion.
While his first job was in car sales – at a time when he was still at the height of this addiction – Grant started his first business age 29.
The Cardone Group provides consulting services to auto dealerships globally.
He realised soon enough that his experience and techniques to improve sales and businesses could be replicated across different industries, and founded the online Cardone University.
Grant continued to run events and and selling sales-related merchandise and licensed products.
He has also built an impressive portfolio of real estate investment funds, controlling $800 million worth of investment properties across the U.S.
Grant Cardone is the owner of Cardone Capital, Cardone Training Technologies, Grant Cardone TV, and Grant Cardone Sales University.
The entrepreneur currently lives in Miami with his wife, Elena Cardone and their two children, Sabrina and Scarlett.
