@GrantCardone Howdy Grant! How did you find live streaming? Clearly, it's become a 🔑 part of your brand and your product -- what do you find most valuable about it?
Grant Cardone@grantcardone · Hey, I'm Grant Cardone, New York Times b
@jsneedles Jeffy - good to see you. streaming allows me to KNOW the audience. Reach is massive. just did a fb stream 358,000 reached 7000 watched -
Giselle Sendra@gisellesendra · Digital Marketing Director - Robomow
@grantcardone @jsneedles live streaming is the latest and greatest trend in terms of advertising. Text alone is dead. Image and text is better. Videos are best. Live streaming gives the greatest impact.

What are some of the most common mistakes salespeople make?
Grant Cardone@grantcardone · Hey, I'm Grant Cardone, New York Times b
@tomstocklein friend of mine took company from startup to 21b in 7 years...everything was urgent
Giselle Sendra@gisellesendra · Digital Marketing Director - Robomow
@grantcardone @tomstocklein isn't that a good day when you can take a startup from 0 to 21b (billion right?); why was it a mistake to make everything urgent if he made out so well by doing so?
Thomas Stöcklein@tomstocklein · FoundersFundersFuture.com

What are your top pieces of advice for someone just starting out their first new business?
Grant Cardone@grantcardone · Hey, I'm Grant Cardone, New York Times b
@ems_hodge learn how to SELL - SellOrBeSold.net
Giselle Sendra@gisellesendra · Digital Marketing Director - Robomow
@grantcardone @ems_hodge agreed! Everything is a selling game. The trick is to not sell directly, but selling indirectly by selling the experience rather than the features.
