Nothing will provide you with more protection than the ability to generate revenue—something that’s done by taking massive action, effectively marketing, staying in front of customers, and getting the job done!

It’s about investing energy to make yourself known and valuable throughout the market. Do that, and you will never be without work or money. Be great, Grant Cardone
