Bill Gates Business Illustration

In a minute, I want to tell you a story about the guy Microsoft founder Bill Gates poached from Sam’s Club.

But first, you need to understand something about Microsoft.

Most people don’t get it.

They see Apple selling all these laptops and phones…

And they think Microsoft is old news.  That it’s washed up.

But it might surprise you to know that Microsoft is the second biggest company in America right now – just behind Apple.

Which means Microsoft is bigger than Google or Amazon.  Much bigger.

Microsoft is more than double the size of Facebook and Walmart combined.

And it’s more than 10X bigger than McDonald’s.

So, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

Most of Microsoft’s money is NOT coming from selling hardware.

It’s coming from selling software – Outlook, Excel, Word… along with cloud services.

In Q2 of this  year, they made about $35 billion in just these 2 areas.

So, not only is Microsoft alive and kicking… it’s prospering, thriving, and expanding.

Part of the reason for their massive ongoing success is their former Chief Operating Officer – Kevin Turner.

In 2005, Bill Gates poached Kevin from Sam’s Club.  He recruited him to run Microsoft’s worldwide sales and marketing.

When Bill Gates wants you, you know you’ve made it.

Kevin Turner is the guy that opened those fancy Microsoft stores you see in the malls.

And while he was there, he grew Microsoft’s revenue from $38 billion to $93 billion.

He’s a sales and marketing powerhouse.

Which is why I’ve chosen to host him on Saturday’s 10X Business Summit.

(You can attend for free if you register here.)

On the Summit, Kevin is going to share strategies that anyone can use to scale their business.

And it’s not only Kevin Turner.

You’ll also get real-world strategies and tactics from…

Jenna Kutcher (who has built a fantastic business from a base of 1 million Instagram followers).

And Dr. Mohamed El-Erian (The man who took PIMCO’s assets under management from $1 trillion to $ trillion).

So, when I say you’ll learn more in 4 hours than you’d learn from 4 years in College… I mean it.

Again, the 10X Business Summit is free.  And it’s happening THIS Saturday.

All you have to do is register and show up.

Keeping it real,

–   Grant Cardone
