If you say you “hate” your job, here’s the hard truth that will change the way you think about it.

A job is the best way to get rich. It’s the only way you’ll get rich. Anyone that’s ever accumulated wealth started with a job.

You can’t give me an example of any wildly successful person who didn’t have a job first. Steve Jobs had one, and so did Elon Musk, for example.

Sure, Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook in his dorm room, and Steve Jobs started his company from his garage. Those are true, but that’s not where they got rich. They got rich when they moved to Silicon Valley.

From car salesperson to billionaire entrepreneur

When I started many moons ago, I hated sales. I never wanted to touch it.

However, I was determined to learn how to love and embrace sales. That’s what was in front of me, and I was going to figure it out either way.

I was committed.

Believe it or not, there was a time I hated selling to multiple people, and it terrified me. But you have to start somewhere.

Slowly but surely, I learned that the only way to get consistently good at something is to practice it repeatedly. Sales were no different. So, I practiced and practiced until I grew to love it.

After years, I gained the skills that allowed me to become a highly successful salesperson through hard work and determination — eventually leading me to where I am today.


I had this job for quite some time, but it helped me nail every pitch and become the top car salesperson. Fast-forward to today, and I’m proud to be a successful entrepreneur and investor.

Not to mention I’m passing on all my lessons, knowledge, tools, and resources through Cardone University.

Your job will make you rich

Look, no one just became rich overnight or without some job. They could’ve waited tables, been a cashier, or worked at a coffee shop. They all had to start somewhere — just like you.

So, if you’re hating your job right now, remember that it could be the best thing ever to happen to you. It might not feel like it now, but if you hang in there and keep pushing through, you’ll eventually get to where you need to be.

Be Great,

Grant Cardone
