Publisher's Summary

Be honest. Is your life everything you’ve ever dreamed it would be? Do you have the partner, the kids, the career, the community, the social network, and heck, even the car and house you thought you’d one day have? Or have you put your wants and needs on the back burner, not once or twice but repeatedly? Does "maybe tomorrow" have a familiar ring to it? Have you gotten comfortable with the idea of the big picture looking kind of small or being normal for the sake of fitting in? Have a year, five years, even 10 years gone by without any real progress toward your goals?

Build an Empire lays the groundwork for creating, building, and defending an extraordinary career and marriage - an empire, based on the real-life, time-tested and proven principles used by Elena and Grant Cardone in their quest to help seven billion people worldwide. It provides actionable, tangible steps that anyone can take, no matter what their age or where they are in life, to begin the process of building their own personal empire, along with tools, tips, and techniques to stay focused along the way, including:  

  • How to create clear and sustainable goals for the short and long term 
  • The importance of staying on the same page as your partner 
  • Why rejecting “normal” can serve as the ultimate ticket to freedom 
  • Defending your empire, including practical, real-life tips for personal defense 
  • Where to find the man or woman of your dreams (hint: it’s not at a bar)  

If you’re ready to send your excuses packing and ready to roll up your sleeves and commit to your future, you’ve found a great place to start. Build an Empire is the next best thing to having Elena Cardone as your personal coach and marriage expert - all while taking 100 percent ownership of the life you’re living now.

Great for both men and women.

Watched the GNE show for many years and Elena brought the heat. We always see Grants perspective but in this book we learn from the perspective of a business woman, wife and mother who not only keeps her family together but also helps keep her families business together by innovative thinking and influencing her husband and business partner to make some really big power moves.

I have to be honest, I'm alittle Jealous of Grant and Elena's relationship. I hope to one day meet a woman who is not only a strong and brilliant chick but who is also a complete bad ass as well.

I strongly recommend this book for men who are looking for not only business advice but a woman who is more than some boring and lazy Instagram model. Elena represents how a real woman should be: Strong, femine, creative, supportive and battle harden and ready to take over the world.

Awesome book Elena!

Much love from Canada

Didn't learn anything

I have almost all grant's books and audio books. So I thought I would give this a try. But sadly it didn't give me anything. She has the same tempo the whole time and I had a struggle to finish the audio program. And the sound was terrible.

If you want to invest in yourself as a woman start with this book

I only wish I could have listen or read this book when I was 15 so I could get the right start. How ever wishing isn’t going to get me or anyone for that matter anywhere. This book is a must read for all women regardless of age and the right book for you weather your in an avrave relationship or a great relationship this will take your relationship to the next level as her husbands best seller says it will 10x it. The audio is fantastic Elena keeps is corky fun and interesting the entire time. I recommend this book to you snd as a gift to those girls around you be it family or friend. Lots of lessons to learn from. I Apreciate her opening up and being venerable with the good the bad and the ugly. It’s inspiring and motivating. Enjoy her book and don’t miss out.

Was great

Even though I am a single guy in my 50s working on my real estate business, some of what she said was what i needed to hear. I wish I had someone like this to push me, so I am going to work on that, as well as my Empire.

Powerful Woman's Handbook

Elena has some powerful, common sense exercises in this book to help you confirm and focus where you are in your relationship to help move your empire forward. I appreciate that Elena throws aside the "typical" women's lib stereo types and is a model for women who truly do it all - a successful marriage, a loving parent and a KICK ASS business tycoon. Thank you for an inspiring and motivating manual for success. I appreciate all that you and Grant provide; you are making a difference in this world and have made a huge difference in my world. Thank you!

I absolutely love this book!!!

It's a pleasure to hear from someone who has done it and continues to build and create her own empire. I highly recommend this book to all the young women out there that want to start creating their empire with a powerful men by their sides. I'm not marry yet but I understand what it is to be with an entrepreneur go getter type of men. And we are both builders and creators trying to be on the same page.

Good review of Cardone stuff

There were some good reminders and a lot of great analogies incorporating the empire theme. I hope to use some of the suggestions she gives in my relationship. The narration was a little robotic and when they dubbed over the chapter headings it ruined the flow.

Some good nuggets

There are definitely some good memorable nuggets in this book, even if I didn’t agree with everything she said. The performance is a little messy, but you can look past that to see the valuable takeaways. The exercises were particularly helpful!
