Podcast: Elena Cardone – Building a Billion Dollar Empire (Episode 1)

“You’re either building an empire, or you’re destroying one” – Elena Cardone.

Elena Cardone started her career in Hollywood and quickly gained success as a model and actress. You may have seen her on shows like Two and a Half Men, Ally McBeal, and NCIS. Elena is an author, business woman, personal development coach and public speaker. She currently hosts the ‘Women in Power’ show and co-hosts the ‘G&E’ show with her husband, Grant Cardone. Elena is also a competitive sport shooter, entrepreneur, empire builder, and investor and together with Grant, has created a real-estate portfolio of $1.2 billion dollars.

Elena’s bestselling book, Build an Empire, lays the groundwork for creating, building and defending an extraordinary career and marriage. An empire, based on the real-life, time-tested and proven principles used by Elena and Grant. 

I had the pleasure of being invited to Elena’s Point Piper home to interview her during her time in Sydney. During the interview, we spoke about all things building an empire, relationships, mindset, setting and achieving big goals and overcoming challenges.
