On today’s episode of the BiggerPockets Podcast, we sit down with bestselling author, TV pundit, and massively-successful real estate investor Grant Cardone. In one of the most motivating, humorous, inspiring — and inappropriate — podcasts of all 108 shows, you’ll be captivated by Grant’s candor and viewpoints on everything from getting a college education to investing in liberal cities to his definition of success. You’ll also learn how Grant has used the principles outlined in his book, The 10X Rule, to grow his real estate portfolio to a value of $350,000,000. Yes, that’s $350 MILLION dollars.
