He allegedly has a namesake online university, but there have been some discrepancies about this. He expounded on the rumors.

“I tried improving it [his Wikipedia page], adding just factual information that was unbiased, but haters quickly came in flagging me for having a “conflict of interest.” After an edit war, a wiki hater warned me he would block me from further edits if I “vandalized” my page…by merely mentioning the fact that I created an online platform called Cardone University.”

According to Cardone, he made a noteworthy income from this endeavor.

His real estate projects gross innumerable amounts of capital and touch on a plethora of factors: equity market, amortization, depreciation, tax benefits and the like.

A bona fide author, Cardone lines his bank accounts with the royalties from his bestsellers, as well: “The 10x Rule: The Only Difference Between Success and Failure,” “The Closer’s Survival Guide,” “Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life,” “The Millionaire Booklet,” “Be Obsessed or Be Average” and “How to Create Wealth Investing in Real Estate.”

Grant Cardone is a businessman and motivational speaker who has accomplished many feats, even on a global scale. He’s hands-on with his professional affairs and dealings. Grant Cardone reportedly texted some of his fans personally who had signed up to be a part of his conferences.

He holds many training seminars in an attempt to help others learn how to generate wealth and, of course, he racks up a fortune for himself in the process.

Grant Cardone has chosen to apply himself in every way possible in order to make it big, the way he always imagined he would back in his Summer days in Louisiana as an expectant and optimistic kid.

But, the road was neither smooth nor straight on his way to victory. Grant Cardone fell into pothole after pothole—drug after drug—and ended up stuck in a few muddy ditches—on the sidelines—strung out and hopeless.

Yet, he managed to get back on the right path and cruise to the destiny that seemed to have escaped him.

Early Life

Grant Cardone’s childhood is a solemn one, but it’s one he hasn’t been shy about sharing. In one of his bestselling books, “Be Obsessed or Be Average,” he spilled the beans on the trauma that occurred in his adolescence, citing he had to grow up much sooner than any child should have to.

His parents, Curtis and Concetta Cardone, raised him in a middle-class neighborhood. They enjoyed the affluence that was afforded them. Without notice, his father died of a heart attack. Cardone’s whole life stopped.

He felt like the rug had been pulled from under him. Unable to cope, he rebelled as a preteen and beyond, often defying authoritative figures and medicating his wounds with drugs. Before long, he was an addict with no direction in life.

Cardone painted himself as a “troubled kid.”

His mother slipped into anxious bouts, wondering where their provision would come from; his dad had been the breadwinner.

Cardone remembered lessons his dad instilled in him before he passed away: work hard, aim for greatness and prioritize family above everything else.

Personal Life

The 60-year-old entrepreneur worked hard and achieved the American dream. He claims to carve out ample time with his family, although his schedule is quite busy.

He has a wife, Elena Lyons. Her birth name was Rosaia in lieu of Lyons.

She has a thing for hot rods, her favorite being a 1965 Chevy Malibu SS, convertible. She’s taken an interest in selling off properties and estates with her husband.

Cardone and Lyons tied the knot in 2004 on Independence Day.

The two share daughters, Scarlett and Sabrina Cardone.

At some point, Lyons owned a Great Dane and parrots. Grant Cardone has at least three siblings.

He and his wife make a very cozy living.

Coaching beget other opportunities in the sales industry.

Implementing the lessons his father taught him, he rose to the top of his game as the CEO of Freedom Motorsports Group Inc.; they sponsored NASCAR drivers; and they also endorsed Dianetics and Scientology.

Doors continued to burst open for him until he stumbled into his big break that allowed him to rub elbows with the higher ups at the National Geographic headquarters, the television division.

After extensive talks with them, they handed Cardone his own show, “Turnaround King.”

It made its debut premiere in 2011 and even now films regularly.

In it, he uses the medium of television to help companies and businesses salvage their tanking, vision-less or stalled enterprises, causing them to run smoothly again and profit.

Although Cardone is no stranger to TV—as he’s contributed to outlets like CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and Fox—his solo show, “Turnaround King,” was a whole different animal.

At present, Grant Cardone net worth reached $300,000,000.

He’s pushing the billion-dollar mark with his real estate ventures.
