(PRESS RELEASE)_PALM BEACH, FL -- The Grant Cardone Foundation hosts a special visit with 50 Take Stock in Children PBC high school and college students for a surprise mentoring workshop with Founder, Grant Cardone at the Grant Cardone Miami Headquarters and announces Ms. Magdalena Gonzalez as the Foundation's inaugural “10X Kid of the Year”. This was accomplished through a great partnership with the non-profit organization, through this partnership, Ms. Gonzalez completed The Grant Cardone Foundation's 10X Kids University curriculum and reinforced her goals through the teachings of the program.
The Grant Cardone Foundation has named Magdalena Gonzalez as its inaugural 10X Kid of the Year, in partnership with non-profit organization Take Stock In Children PBC. Gonzalez completed the Grant Cardone Foundation's 10X Kids University curriculum, which teaches entrepreneurial skills, financial literacy, marketing, and public speaking to children of all ages. The Foundation seeks to honor youths who exhibit determination, ambition, and passion. Gonzalez plans to intern at The Grant Cardone Foundation in June 2023, where she will learn from and work alongside staff members. She also plans to start her own marketing firm and non-profit that educates children on ocean conservation.
"We are grateful for the generous support of The Grant Cardone Foundation in our mission to empower and prepare youth for a successful future through essential workforce development and financial literacy workshops. Together, we are building a brighter tomorrow for the next generation," said Lidia Vargas, the Director of Development at Take Stock in Children Palm Beach County.
The Grant Cardone Foundation has seen a tremendous amount of talented youth in its ecosystem of community partners. With the 10X Kid of the Year award, the Foundation seeks to honor a youth who showcases determination, ambition, and passion.
"For me, winning means accomplishing my goals, making my loved ones proud, and setting new goals. I think that we always have to look for new goals and continue to improve ourselves, one win at a time," Ms. Gonzalez said. "Just because we win once does not mean we can't keep winning. Winning for me is a motivation to move on to the next big thing!"
Ms. Gonzalez is slated to start an internship at The Grant Cardone Foundation at the end of June 2023 for the summer, where she will learn from and work alongside other staff members of the Foundation.
"The internship at The Grant Cardone Foundation is definitely the opportunity of a lifetime, I wouldn't trade it for the world. It will allow me to build connections that couldn't be made anywhere else. I am looking forward to learning from the very talented and intelligent personnel at The Grant Cardone Foundation. The skills and values that I learn from this organization will greatly be put to use when I start my own businesses and non-for-profits," Ms. Gonzalez said.
"I also have recently gotten accepted into the University of Florida, the school I've wanted to attend since I was 12 years old, and I believe that learning from The Grant Cardone Foundation would greatly enrich my education there," she added.
After completing her education at the University of Florida, Ms. Gonzalez plans on starting her own marketing firm.
"My idea behind this firm is helping small businesses grow. Many of these business owners don't have what they need to make their businesses go from small to big," she explained. "My goal is to be what they need. After solidifying that business, starting my own non-for-profit designed to educate the community, especially children, on ocean conservation would be my next goal."
The 10X Kids University curriculum takes the same success principles Mr. Cardone has taught to millions of entrepreneurs and Fortune 500 companies around the world and translates them into an educational platform for children of all ages. Through the curriculum, children learn entrepreneurial skills, financial literacy, sales skills, marketing, confidence, public speaking skills, and customer experience skills.
The Grant Cardone Foundation looks forward to sharing this curriculum with more talented youth in 2023 and recognizing the next 10X Kid of the Year. The Grant Cardone Foundation is a Section 501(c) (3) charitable organization organized under the laws of the State of Florida. For more information please visit https://grantcardonefoundation.com.
