The great Grant Cardone is coming to do an event at Flag. Not for free of course, they’re going to use this as a chance to make money. They don’t say what the price is, but you can scan the QR code (you might have more luck than I did “the server cannot be found”) but if that’s not good enough for you, you can “ask your Registrar about VIP options.”
They’re trying to make this like a big celebrity “event,” pay $500 you can stand next to the great man, for $1000 get a photo op, for $10,000 you can shake hands and hang out in the green room sort of thing. For this guy?
What is really going on here? Why would Grant Cardone be doing this when he could be holding one of his infamous 10X seminars and making a ton of money from people who come to hear about his personal wealth? The money for this event is going to Flag.
A: Ethics Handling.
This literally screams “I am doing this as part of an ethics handling I am going through, it is a way to make some money for Flag by doing something and not just writing a check.”
You may have seen the recent videos on Aaron Smith-Levin’s YouTube channel, Growing Up In Scientology like this one:
Once the Flag MAA’s got a load of this (and earlier videos) you can bet Mr. Cardone was called in for a round of sec checking.
I would bet my next check from Big Pharma that this upcoming event is a part of his “amends” to “get out of lower conditions.”
Grant Cardone does nothing for free unless he has no option.
I ran across this and thought I should share it here.
“Grant Cardone is a widely popular motivational speaker and social media influencer.
Has amassed over 1.6 million followers on TikTok, 4.1 million followers on Instagram, and he thinks that any man who makes less than $400,000/year should be ashamed of themselves.”

“I would bet my next check from Big Pharma that…..”
Nice addition. <3
Ugh. This guy makes me ill. He and that gargoyle he’s married to. Singly and together…ugh.

Ha Ha Ha! I immediately scanned the QR code and also got sever not found.
Careful about scanning QR codes on Scientology materials. They might infect your phone with body thetans.
The great King Doosh! Behold his greatness! His perpetual five o’clock shadow! This guy joined Scientology to be the next Bob Duggan. He is the classic grifter. I don’t care how many ‘completions’ the slap next to his name he probably doesn’t believe the Scilon shite any more than we do. He tows the line because it makes him money. Way back he was one of Davys enforcers and wanted to be the next Marty Mcfly but his grift got bigger and he started making more money scamming so being Dave’s foot stool didn’t turn out to be that much fun after all. Soooo now he’s not pleased the big man. Probably a bunch of scilons are writing KRs about all the money they’ve lost in his scams. What…can’t withdraw all that money King D said you’d make…can’t even withdraw your investment cause there’s a clause in all that fine print that says you basically just gave your money away. Now instead of cutting a check (cause we all know King D don’t GIVE money away) he’s doing a 10x seminar at Flag. Pay extra VIP to hear all the Sooper seekrets to making all that dough! Here’s a clue for any wanting to attend…he’s a grifter and a scammer. It’s well documented.

It is amazing how far you can get being a good looking smoothie.

Sorry, but he doesn’t strike ME as “good-looking”. Seems to me to be a used car salesman — without any product to exchange other than feel-good platitudes, little which can be APPLIED other than “donate NOW!”. Then again, I’m a fairly-happy straight retired guy.
Angry Gay Pope says
I find him handsome when made up BUT if I went to a car dealership and the salesman or the home realtor was really hot (male or female) I would NOT trust them! 🙂
What about Angel? Or Franck? Or Odo?
How do they compare to Grant Cardone?
Angry Gay Pope says
Odo looks lame but women kept saying “He’s hot because he is so lean and anorexic.” I said “there is a reason he has no body fat” 🙂
I’m glad I made characters out of these people when I could as they seem to have disappeared.

Wow! How desperate must Flag be to create Bodies In The Shop (BIS) and fill some hotel rooms? They are going to bring in this Flim Flam Man as an “event”, put him up on some kind of super celeb platform and line up a bunch of rich Scientologists for him to take advantage of. His first con was getting some dumb ass, desperate Sea Org members to buy into the idea. Pay $10,000 and get to sit on Grants lap. Stick around to the end of the event when we will be auctioning off Grants clothes. Can things get more pathetic and off the rails?
You got that right about Con Man Cardone. I went to talk of his at CC some years back and I remember being so unimpressed and disappointed. Even as a KA drinker at that time, I could see he was a big uneducated, narcissist ham basking in his own glory.
Mat Pesch says
Ya, Scientology has enough trouble trying to keep the lid on all its financial crimes without inviting Grant to spread his slime.
Whadayasay about gittin Matt Feshback to twin up with the Card man and give a lecture on TAX EVASION FOR OH TEES.
Ya could charge fer it ……. and if YOU did the intro YOU could bask in the glory …….
Just sayin …. we know how important basking is fer our good buddy.

Yes, it certainly seems like he is doing some sort of amends step. I wonder how long it has been since Cardone was visibly associated with Scientology. I haven’t seen anything (though I don’t follow things as closely as I did a few years ago, so I may have missed them) where he has commented in an interview about Scientology or where he has been at an event. So it certainly seems like Miscavige has got him doing something to show Cardone who’s boss.
Separately, I wonder how much the pandemic lockdowns have affected Cardone’s business model. Basically, he does all those seminars to recruit 20-something and 30-something “stock bros” who shell out $10,000 chunks to invest in his real estate deals. Basically, he’s selling to the same crowd that thinks they’ll make billions trading cryptocurrencies.
I’ve helped Jeff Augustine over at Scientology Money Project look at exactly how Cardone stacks the deck with self-dealing to make sure he takes the lion’s share of the profits from his deals. It’s all perfectly legal of course, because it’s fully disclosed in the prospectus, which the finance bros are too unsophisticated to understand.
But if your capital flow is dependent on people coming to events and you can’t have events for a long time, and if you also have to suspend distributions for a while because your interest expenses are soaring, then you’re probably not pulling in too many new marks. I don’t think they can recruit enough Scientologists to come to this event to provide a meaningful number of new investors for his scheme to replace the ones he didn’t get during the pandemic. It would be fun to see if you can get a fly on the wall who will tell you how many people actually showed up (and who weren’t Sea Org slaves dragooned into the audience to fill seats).
I cherish reading all you write.
Great, another con man.
Yes, and Grant has more of the Hubbard style huckster persona than DM does.
Mary Kahn says
…and then of course, the downstats and lack of expansion going on in the church of scientology as a whole is because of someone. There is always a “Who.” So, I’m sure Grant Cardone will be a WHO. Until he does his lowers.. bla bla bla. And then david miscavige will find another WHO.
Jere Lull says
Of course, Davey McSavage will never be discovered as “The WHO”, which might just correct the stat crashes since 1986..

I twinned with this guy at Flag with no idea I was in the presence of Greatness! The only thing I recall him saying is that he was more inclined to overts than withholds.
