On top of that, the conference attendees were given a taste of show business themselves!
We won’t keep you in any more suspense. After recapping Day 1, now let’s get into all the event’s excitement in…
Lights, Camera, Action! 10X Growth Con 2023 Day 2 Recap
On the second day, Grant didn’t waste any time. He jumped into the show and introduced “Shark Tank” star, Robert Herjavec.
Herjavec went into specifics about the hardships of being raised in a communist country, as well as how all the “Sharks” had their first jobs in debt collection.
Robert’s insights on mindset, money, and success were highly inspirational. Here are just a few of his nuggets of wisdom…
- “What people don’t see is the little dots that connect over 10 years to create greatness.”
- “You cannot win if you don’t get up and show up.”
- “Here’s the beauty of capital… It grows. It builds on itself. So anything that you can do to get a regular income stream that you can build into capital is gold.”
To no one’s surprise, Grant and Robert held the crowd rapt. So, how do you follow an act like an Emmy-winning TV star?
Winner of “The Great American Speak Off” Chosen LIVE
For months, GC has been going across the country looking for the Greatest Speaker in America alongside his fellow judges — Elena Cardone, Stormy Wellington, and Pete Vargas.
The judges had narrowed it down from 25,000 contestants to the final four.
But now, they wanted the entire Day 2 10X Growth Con audience to crown the winner.
Here’s how the final battle went down…
Joe Beckman Wanted Us to Make a Connection
The first of the finalists to deliver their signature speech was Joe Beckman.
Joe emphasized the importance of human connection and the difference each of us can make in the lives of others.
Even though Grant disliked him squinting during the presentation, the rest of the judges were impressed overall.
Still, there was more competition on the way…
Second Chance “The Great American Speak Off” finalist, Shametria Gonzales
Initially, Gonzales had been cut from the competition. However, the judges saw her potential and decided to bring her back…
And everyone was glad they did!
Shametria’s riveting keynote captured the audience’s hearts on Day 2 of 10X Growth Con; the judges were no exception.
So, the next contestants would have to bring the heat to win to come out on top…
Randy Hedge Laid on the Country Charm
The third participant in the “Speak Off” showdown painted a picture with his physical appearance and his words.
Randy’s countrified euphemisms were entertaining and stuck with those listening.
Judge Stormy Wellington was particularly tickled by his antics.
However, there was one last horse in the race…
Glenn Lundy Made Us Think
Last, Glenn Lundy asked us all to look within ourselves for value, no matter our outer appearance.
Glenn’s personal story of understanding who he was after years of confusion choked up all of the judges. Lundy is a father of eight from a mixed background. As a result, his signature talk took Grant “on an adventure.”
The audience must have felt the same…
After two rounds of applause, Glenn Lundy was officially named the winner of the first “Great American Speak Off.”
Once the results were celebrated, 10X Stages partner Pete Vargas went into what made each speaker so incredible. Vargas also shared how others could audition for next year’s competition for their chance to be on TV — something the following guest knows all about…
Some of the ‘Most Influential People in the World’ were at Day 2 of 10X Growth Con 2023
Whether it’s from her 20+ years in journalism or her public feud with the 45th President of the United States, every American has been exposed to Megyn Kelly’s media presence.
Like Grant, she attributes her success to authenticity and using “haters” as fuel.
“I thrive on [haters]. I love knowing how easy it is to upset them, I don’t block them, I enjoy watching them melt down,” Kelly said about having tough skin in journalism.
Megyn also commented on her controversial reputation that she had to “run away from the safe spaces” to find the right people to align with.
Given her career longevity and top-performing podcast, The Megyn Kelly Show, she has made that happen.
After she hyped up the audience, celebrity medical consultant and 10X Health partner Gary Brecka shared the secret to us all feeling like superstars. Brecka included how he personally helped Dana White, Grant Cardone, and Brandon Dawson.
Dawson returned to the stage to personally thank Brecka, then went on to interview the next speaker…
Kevin Turner, the TRILLION-DOLLAR Executive Icon
Legend of the business world Kevin Turner did not have his sights on conquering the marketplace as a young man. In fact, he wanted to be an athlete.
Nonetheless, all that changed when he got a cashier position at Walmart…
What started as a part-time job led Turner to working directly with Walmart founder Sam Walton — and becoming the organization’s youngest Chief Information Officer.
Later, Kevin became a C-suite leader for Microsoft and Citadel. His no-nonsense leadership led to over $1 TRILLION worth of commerce being done during his tenure.
According to the business juggernaut, leaders should ask themselves three things if their business isn’t running well:
- Am I moving fast enough?
- Am I being bold enough?
- Do I have the right team?
Speaking of teams, the last celebrity speaker of the night makes his money speaking on teams for a living…
ESPN Host Stephen A. Smith Knows He’s Worth It
These days, Stephen A. Smith is one of the highest-paid sportscasters in the country. However, he felt for a long time that he wasn’t getting what he deserved…
Despite admittedly being “arrogant” in his early career, Smith had trouble leveraging what he brought to the table. It was some practical advice from his mother that finally made him change his approach.
“No boss wants to talk to somebody or listen to somebody that has only complaints. If you’re not a problem-solver, no one wants to hear you,” the sports journalist quoted his mom.
From then on, Stephen became solution-oriented, demonstrating how his unique talents were valuable. This ultimately resulted in his massive success today.
“When you find what your gift is, that’s when you find out what you’re truly made of,” Smith wrapped up Day 2 of 10X Growth Con 2023.
Still, there is one more day of the conference to cover…
