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.

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.

I almost loved it but...

I love her energy and in the audio, I can tell she gets off script and really loves the info she’s sharing. I enjoyed it until she said that therapy is a cheap, quick, and disposable method that will not help you or your marriage.


*sigh* I’m not going to fully type out how I feel about that immature belief she’s spreading, but pushing that aside and her statement that says if you look at a crumbling empire it’s the queen fault, the book is ok.

It’s cute, fun, and lighthearted. I wouldn’t take it that serious. Remember, this is us reading her psychology and the way she thinks and what she believes.

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.

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.

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.

Written for married women only

Didn't find this of any use. She corms from a privileged background doesnt talk in literal terms and isn't motivational. There was a few good tips but it focuses on being a "queen" and being part of a partnership. Naff all help for those of us who are still single and/or male. Was really hopping her different perspective would help but nope... Its trash. Her voice is also utterly annoying and she's arrogant af. There's a fine line between confidence and arrogance and my god she's bleeding arrogance. DON'T BOTHER

Great book! Especially recommended for women

The book is easy to listen to. You won't get any complex knowledge from this book, however it shows the reality behind the so called empire. It's a great book for driven women and/or women that are in a relationship with a hardworking entrepreneur. It opened my eyes in terms of relationship problems and that "regular" people always rush with the advices that not necessarily apply to people/relationships with higher aspirations. Overall: it's a great book, totally recommend it!

An Absolute Must Listen!

I have never listened to content about relationships or home. This has completely changed my view of the life I want with my partner and I am making changes today to be a better version of myself. I have also referred the book to my partner and most of my family.
12/10 Elena, I loved everything about the book.
