National Geographic Channel (NGC) introduces self-made multimillionaire and ‘turnaround’
In a two-part special premiering on Sunday, June 19, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Cardone takes on a Car dealership that is barely hanging on and a gym that is losing money every month. Cardone begins each mission by going undercover with hidden cameras and identifying the actual problems with the company. Cardone says, "Most companies haven't even identified the right problem and therefore can never come up with the right solution." After his undercover mission, he reveals his true identity and works with management and employees to create a 'turnaround' plan. Cardone says, "I can turnaround any company, in any economy selling any product, anytime -- guaranteed!" Cardone has been giving businesses guidance for over 25 years, customizing sales processes and systems to ensure their success. Cardone says, "Businesses that continue to blame the economy are destined for failure. Anyone that holds on to old practices is dead meat in the new economy!"

International sales expert Grant Cardone travels to Whippany, N.J., where he starts with a hidden camera tour of the facilities. He is convinced the gym is suffering from mismanagement, poor fee structures and a failure to utilize its biggest assets: employees and personal trainers. With a new sales plan, Grant takes the staff through his step-by-step process to win new members. But not everyone is on board. Will he be able to convince the owners to change direction before it’s too late?
