Grant and Elena Cardone discuss the affect of the company you keep, and they don’t just mean professional, they’re also talking about your friends. Over the holidays there is a lot of exposure to family you may not see throughout the year, and with that exposure you are exposed to their lack of social graces and boundaries. And as Grant puts is, “they drop in the garbage.”

If you do your ‘due diligence’ with your friends, and by that, they mean paying close attention and taking steps to ensure the quality of the situations you are in, you will see your business and your personal life sync up. Are you critical of your morning coffee from Starbucks? Did the put in the creamer or the vanilla? Imagine if you were that concerned about your friends. You would immediately see a change in the type of people you associate with.

Grant and Elena also take a caller who had $30k stolen from him by a business partner who was, “too good to be true,” and, “was so over the top the positive attitude was intoxicating.”

Picking Your Posse Tips:
1. Wash your hands
2. Do your due diligence on your friends
3. Actions speak louder than words
4. Pay attention to the obvious, don’t be blinded by what you want
5. Be willing to be tough and say things that may make them uncomfortable

And the Cardone duo wants you to remember the most important thing: “At the end of the day, it’s just you and me.” Protect that.

    A person recently told me that every five to seven years, he updates his posse. I think that is some brilliant advice.

    At the end of the day, you are probably looking to end up at a completely different destination than your friends. Because of this you have to let some friend leave YOUR journey when they have outlived their stay.

    Takman17 Yes I had to go through that cleanse years ago. Once I left them, I realized just HOW much they tried to stop and hold me back. It really was astounding! Those people and those times were a huge waste of time and total compromise to who I really am and can be!!

    This is SUCH an important and crucial topic you could easily expand on this and produce 5 more related shows! My question is…what if the toxic person is extended family?? What if the person antagonistic to your marriage is a close relative?
