    How To Pick A Business Partner and What it Takes To Get To $150M

    Welcome back to Building Billions, I'm Natalie Dawson! Today, I'm diving into the art of selecting a $100 million business partner, drawing from my extensive experience over the past five years. My husband and I have been fortunate to collaborate with Grant and Elena Cardone, yielding hundreds of millions in returns. Along the way, we've learned invaluable lessons from both successful and unsuccessful partnerships.
    In this episode, I'm sharing my playbook on what to look for when choosing a business partner. Core values are paramount. We scrutinize if potential partners align with our values of inspiration, discipline, transparency, accountability, and results orientation. It's not just about showing results; it's about consistent discipline and open communication.
    While we're serious about our work, we believe in infusing fun and camaraderie into our partnerships. A positive, supportive culture is key to sustained success.

    How I Lead A $125M Team

    How I Lead A $125M Team

    Welcome back to Building Billions! In today's episode, I share the key framework I use to lead my $125 million team of over 300 employees. I'm Natalie Dawson, co-founder of Cardone Ventures. Over the past five years, we've grown from zero to $125 million in revenue by finding remarkable talent and fostering a winning culture.
    The foundation of my strategy is John Maxwell's "Law of the Lid," which says a leader's capability limits their organization's potential. I've expanded this concept into three components: the Belief Lid, Operational Effectiveness Lid, and Leadership Lid.
    Belief Lid: How much do you believe in your mission and abilities? This sets the stage for what's possible. Operational Effectiveness Lid: How effective are you at achieving your goals? Leadership Lid: How well can you duplicate your success in others? High belief leads to high operational effectiveness, enabling effective leadership. By inspiring my team to believe in their potential, achieve high performance, and lead others, we create a cycle of growth and success.
    If your business is struggling to grow, I invite you to our next event.
