Grant Cardone believes in Millennials. This show is for those of you who have not yet condemned the hustle. Jarrod reminds us that it’s best to learn from people who have lived through the struggle, but you can’t get much from someone that doesn’t grab your attention. How do you stay interesting? How do you set hooks to keep people coming to you or your product? At Grant’s first job he knocked on doors in El Paso, Albuquerque, San Antonio and Fort Lauderdale.

Visiting a prospect costs up to 8X more than closing them over the phone. “Always leave a voicemail from the phone number you want to be reached at.
