169: Holding Down The Fort
What does holding down the fort even mean? When your spouse is focused on business, or serving in the military, how do you hold down the fort? How do you keep things going at home in a stable way so that the family keeps moving forward with positive progress? Your home space is your sanctuary. The home is your foundation and needs to be in a stable, working order. Take the time to care about your surroundings. Get rid of clutter. Always remember that in building an empire you’re either creating or destroying. Wherever it may be, hold down your fort! Listen to new episodes of G&E show Now on the Cardone Zone.

168: When Personalities Collide
How do couples deal with one wanting to do something while the other doesn’t want to? How do two different personalities get along in the same house? Be honest. It’s important to go in the same direction as a couple. Be accommodating Be in exchange - give more than you take Say yes more Some issues you should not even mention because they will not be important a week later. If you have a disagreement you may feel like you’re not making progress but when you get it out you may notice the change after a week or so when all that information sinks in, the partner will take it into consideration over time.

167: Hitting Your Targets
Sometimes it takes long time to reach targets. Elena wants to feel good and win so when she can’t reach a goal because it’s really big and needs more than a week, she sets smaller targets along the way so she can keep winning. You don’t need to win all the time but you need to win more than you lose. You need targets to look forward to! So never lower your targets, but keep in mind there is nothing wrong with hitting smaller targets. I'm all about 10X, but not every goal has to be Mount Everest. Sit with your spouse and see where are you going. Maybe you don’t know where you are, but if your challenges and obstacles never change you won’t change!

166: Surviving The Slump
Feelings are overrated—they are just emotions and don’t mean anything. You have a hand but you are not a hand. It doesn't define who you are. Neither should your emotions. If you’re depressed, you’re probably rehashing the past. You are stuck in a sympathy band. We are better when we are looking towards the future. Sometimes when you reach one of your goals, there’s a vacuum after you accomplish it. You have to keep asking yourself what’s next, what’s out there.

165: Focus On Your Future
People who don’t go for more, who don’t go after new goals and dreams, get stuck in the past. We’ve all met this person. It’s the ex-high school quarterback who relives that state championship game 20 years later vicariously through his son. It’s the old man who talks about what life used to be 30, 40, and 50 years ago. It’s living in yesterdays. It’s all downhill in life when you start living your todays in yesterdays. Hungry people live for today and for the future. They aren’t sold that they’ve had enough.

164: How to Get on the Same Page
If you didn’t know the G & E Show is in the top 15th on Itunes! How do you get on the same page and how do you stay on the same page as your partner? It’s a continual process—you have to write your goals down.Most people would agree that they should exercise and write their goals down but they don’t do it. If you really understood the importance of doing it, you would. What do you think marriage is? Is it having a lot of sex? Monogamy? You might think you can be better by yourself. Two people in a marriage can actually lift each other up—expand to greater heights. When you have your 100% and someone adds their 100%—you increase your magnitude.

163: Support Your Partner
If you want to have a great relationship, it starts with being supportive. Are you being a supportive partner? You need to have big goals together for your relationship to work long term. What are your goals, and have you talked with your partner about them?!

159: How to Find Your Purpose
Did you ever have a purpose class in school? Most people go to school for 17+ years and don’t even know how to define the word purpose. If you don’t know your purpose, or if it’s vague, you will not have success no matter how much education you have. Purpose is the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. How do you define your purpose? You write it down. Don’t just do it in your head. If you don’t know where to start, remember that what you do is who you are. If you’re lazy, on Instagram all day, a complainer—then that’s who you are because what you do is what you are. If you don’t like it you must change your purpose.

157: Expand Your Empire
Everyone could use more friends. How do you gain more friends? Make your social media come alive! Platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn etc. are great ways to get known. In business, your biggest problem is obscurity. You are a business, by the way. The bigger your business, the bigger your empire. We’re building our empire through social media and you can too: #1 The first thing you need in social media is a commitment. Commit to a specific number of followers. Commitments are always followed by time and money. Commit to many platforms, not just one. #2 After commitment comes content. This means daily. You need different kinds of content. #3 Collaborate with other people. Do for them what you want done for yourself. #4 Share. You have information that others don’t have. Anything you’ve done or experienced you can share with others. They are hungry for your expertise. #5 Promote. Don’t be shy! You need to promote yourself and stop flying under the radar. You need to promote until people are complaining about your promotion

156: Who's In Your Posse
Who’s in your circle? Who’s hanging out in your empire? Empires get torn down from the inside. Your posse should never end, it should be like the ocean. The Atlantic comes in and out, and friends come and go; there’s a constant flow. If a toilet gets clogged, it gets backed up. Are you getting backed up in life by people? Are the 5 people you hang out with the most a sewer? When Grant was 25, his mom exiled him telling him that he wasn’t welcome anymore until he cleaned up his act. Do you need to kick someone out of your posse? If someone is causing trouble, confront them. You need inflow and outflow in your relationships. Don’t be a big fish in the small pond, because ponds are stagnant.

155: Handling Disagreements
The commissioner of the NFL Roger Goodell and President Donald Trump are involved in the controversy over whether football players should stand or kneel in protest during the national anthem. Grant’s view is that we live in America so if people don’t want to stand up they shouldn’t have to stand up. This isn’t the Soviet Union. Should the NFL make players to stand? Elena’s view is that football is not a political platform. In any relationship you’re going to have disagreements, but the thing to remember is to move on from those disagreements fast. Don’t let them ruin your day, your week, or month. Too many people let small things turn to big things because they can’t get a handle on how to come together after disagreement! What do you think about players kneeling during the national anthem? Is Colin Kaepernick mad? Comment below!

154: Protecting the Empire
We were in Mandalay Bay during the mass shooting on Sunday night. The fact is, you’re surrounded by evil and bad things happen to good people—in Las Vegas and every other city on planet Earth. You have to be prepared for things that might happen. During times of crisis people look up to people who are calm and who are prepared and trained to lead. When you become an expert in something you become less nervous in it because your confidence grows. Four main points on how to protect your empire: 1.Training—What are you training on? 2. Get the right people around you—Who do you have in your group? 3. Never let your guard down. 4. Confront Evil.

153: Defending Your Empire
Are you willing to fight for the people you love? Who’s on your team? How do you defend the ones you love? Here’s a quick list to keep in mind as you build your empire: 1. Decide who’s team you’re on 2. Commit to defending the people on your team 3. Defend at all costs and shut negative rumors down 4. The other person is either on your side or on the other side Just because you have a brother doesn’t mean they are on your team. If you can’t defend them, get rid of them. If you won’t fight for your own dreams you won’t fight for anyone else.

150: The Woman Behind The Man
What does a successful man look like, and what does a successful woman behind the man look like? A successful man will be hardworking, ethical, courageous, powerful, and ambitious. What’s behind a powerful woman that’s behind that man? A person willing to put someone else first. Understand you are a team and understand the role you play. To have confidence in yourself, no matter your role, is power. Look at the big picture and step outside of yourself. Powerful women flow power to their man. The truth is real men want a powerful woman. Powerful women aren’t needy, but they aren’t independent either. A powerful woman is a balance of being independent but also enjoys being taken care of. A powerful woman disciplines herself and is in the relationship for the greater good. How do you define a powerful woman?

148: Don't Take Your Relationship For Granted
How do you keep things exciting and not put it on autopilot after 13 years of marriage? One big thing is to not start nagging your partner about how they don’t pay attention to you. This will only cause them to get defensive. When you run a business you have things to take care of urgent things—the fuse is getting low and it’s about to blow—and you can’t always put your attention on your spouse when they want it. Marriages need a system in place that will make the time to talk, so pull out your calendar and make talk time. During talk time, do two main things: 1. Validate what they’ve done good. 2. Go over goals to get in alignment. You must start looking for all the right things your spouse does. The massage, the candlelit dinner, the weekend trip, it’s all good, but your big picture problems as a couple will remain— that’s why you must come together and help each other find solutions to each of your problems. Many times her problems will be different than his problems. He might be distracted with work stress, she might be distracted by 3 kids at home. Seek to solve your problems together and you will not be taking your spouse for granted.

147: The Three P's of Marriage
We’re talking about the business of marriage today, how you can make time for the kids and the biz. How do you do it all? Money helps. Production gets what you need because it allows you to buy the things you need so you can solve the problems and get back to the pleasure. 1. Pleasure—the things that you enjoy, the dinners, the time off, the rest. 2. Problems—the things that stop your pleasure, the pain, the undesirable things of life. 3. Production—the thing that helps you solve problems to get back to the pleasure. Most people fail because they never confront the 2nd stage. What happens when things get tough? You’re going to have problems in your relationships. Pleasure is not going to solve your problems. The only thing that will get you out of your problem is production. You must produce money, love, romance, ideas. Production means to bring forth something. Do you know how to bring forth that which your husband or wife needs? A spouse can only make you so happy, you must produce in life to have sustained pleasure. To spend your life in pleasure you must produce! Get your production so high you can pay for all your problems.

146: Freedom & Independence
July the 4th doesn’t guarantee you freedom. Freedom is the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. The fact is money buys freedom. Without money, you are unable to buy other people’s time, so you sell your time to others. You’re unable to buy the things you want, you settle for the things that are just enough, and you buy things that give you survival for another day. Money is freedom, and freedom is created. Here are 3 truths about Freedom: 1) It Takes Responsibility You and only you are responsible for your freedom. Nobody is going to give you money. You have to go get it. It is up to you. 2) It Takes Persistence Freedom is something you have to create daily. You don’t do it once. It is a habit that you must persist with. Rome was not built in a day, and neither will your empire be. 3) It Takes Sacrifice You have to sacrifice comfort for freedom. You can sit in your lazy boy tonight and be comfortable but it won’t help you later. Every billionaire has paid the price today so they can pay any price tomorrow.

149: How to Work Together, Even If You Don't Work Together
You want to build a great life, not just a job. People say work is a drudgery, but if work is a drudge, you’ve already lost. Work is defined as an activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or a result. Work is only a drudge if you have no purpose. Does your spouse know why you go to work every day? If you’re on the accelerator and your spouse is on the brakes, the marriage is going to get wrecked. You must answer together: 1. Why do you work together as a team? 2. What are your goals? 3. Are you working together or against each other? If you have love you can create anything with anyone, but first you must communicate clearly or you will be on two different pages.
