'Undercover Billionaire' Season 2: Meet Monique Idlett-Mosley, Grant Cardone and Elaine Culotti of Discovery show
Let's be real... we've all thought about starting our very own business at some point. The idea of being your own boss, doing something you're passionate about and making it big while you're at it, is very alluring. Most of us do know, however, that achieving this is far from easy. It takes blood, sweat and tears to run a business and a whole lot of drive and passion to run a successful one.
But if this pandemic has you thinking that maybe it's time to chase that dream, then what better way to figure out just how to do so from three billionaires themselves. Sounds too good to be true? Well, turns out, 'Undercover Billionaire' might just be the crash course you've been looking for. Gear up for season two of the reality show, where not one, but three billionaires are shipped off to different parts of The USA, armed with only a cell phone (minus contacts), ₹100, their years of expertise and 90 days to start a successful business.
While this may seem impossible to most, the season 2 cast of 'Undercover Billionaire' is here to show viewers just what they're worth.
