Every week Grant Cardone comes at you on the Cardone Zone to talk about career, business, and finance. This week the topic is MISTAKES. What do you do when you screw up? We sent out an inappropriate email to 100’s of thousands of companies including places like Google, Aflac, and All-State. We all mistakes. The key is how you recover from them. Mistakes are really MEstakes because mistakes are your fault.

When you’ve made a mistake, do the following:

1) Confront Head On
Be a useful tool for disseminating accurate and timely information. Dealing with the media in good times or when things are more challenging, can be frustrating.

2) Handle It—Set the Rules of the Game
We made a mistake, I own it and I hope you can forgive us for it. I won’t apologize over and over again. People make mistakes. I am not going to be punished repeatedly.

3) Use the Energy of the Crisis or Mistake to Increase Exposure
Write articles, do interviews, record podcasts, etc. Get in front of the story if you can.

You have different channels that you can get away with different things. Your biggest mistake would be if you are too scared to make any mistakes. Realize that when a wreck happens people look. Make the best of the situation and turn the bad into a good!

Truly a great talk. I had an epiphany when the Israeli guy called in about procrastination and Grant said “Mistakes got juice, they got energy”. What I’ve been doing is taking that energy to get down on myself (a vicious feedback loop) rather than using it to move forward. Grant reminded me that I can direct that energy any way I choose.

On the first day at an old job, I accidentally sent an email to the whole company that was meant for my friend who got me hired.  The email was a Ron Swanson meme that said "I am a simple man.  I like pretty, dark haired women and breakfast food."  Boy did I get to know everyone fast.

Hey Grant, I'm a 20 year old from Los Angeles. Been having trouble deciding whether to stay in school or become an entrepreneur. I know entrepreneurship is the way to go; but don't know what direction to take when it comes to it. Any advice?

@Adrian Tamayo -Adrian that is a BIG decision man!! But you have to think about what your $$$ your investing in school be worth the 4 Yrs to learn something you can possibly learn at CARDONE-U??
