Tai Lopez vs. Grant Cardone

Yesterday Tai Lopez stopped by my office and I got to spend some time with him. I’m sure you’ve heard of Tai Lopez, he’s all over the Internet, usually with an exotic car and a couple of women. He’s an investor, entrepreneur, and author, and many people know him for his 67 steps program. After interviewing him on Power Players, I wanted to let you know how we are similar dudes—yet very different.

Similarities:

  • We believe you have to be interesting on social media to gain an audience.
  • You have to capture people’s attention
  • Attention as an asset is much different now than it used to be
  • We know that money is important, and that you should get rich
  • We want money to have freedom and to live the life we want
  • We want to have the ability to have options in life
  • We both like to read a lot and learn from others

Differences:

  • In a debate over quantity versus quality, I believe quantity will always beat quality while Tai was more on the fence
  • I’m open about my net worth, but when I asked Tai point blank about his money, he dodged the question
  • Tai spends more on advertising than I do
  • While I like exotic cars, I personally don’t have the need for more than one
  • Tai started with tomatoes, I started with fish
  • While I used to be like Tai 20 years ago with the ladies, today I’m a married man with kids.

You can watch the full interview here. I’m happy to bring you new Power Players, so let me know in comments who else you’d like me to have on the show. Love Tai or hate him, at least you know him. He’s got his money right and has the freedom to do what he wants when he wants.

That is the goal of getting money—freedom. Life is hard if you don’t have choices:

  1. If you are at a job you hate, you aren’t free.

  2. If your job or income depends on the economy, you are not free.

  3. If you don’t have enough in your pipeline and a weekend storm screws up your month, you are not free.

  4. If you lack the ability to stay motivated, you are not free.

Real freedom requires a tremendous commitment to a different level of life. This is what the 1% knows and others don’t. The wealthy aren’t working for money they are striving for freedom. They want control over their time and freedom from financial burdens.

Freedom is something you can create. If I’ve done it, if Tai has done it, and all of the speakers at 10X Growth Conference have done it then you can do it too.

Be great,

GC

    Another difference is I have never heard or caught Grant Cardone in a lie. Within moments of listening to Tai Lopez’s pitch on his 67 steps I caught him in a HUGE lie. I asked the chat box about it and go no where. I was UNSOLD so fast on this guy. He says he was a Certified Financial Planner. Then he mentions he never went to college. The Certified Financial Planner board has it on the landing page of their website that you have to prove an accredited college degree to even be considered for the program. It is the most prestigious certification you can have after passing the 7. I am surprised no one has caught that before.
