In this episode of Leaders Create Leaders, Entrepreneur Network partner Gerard Adams sits down with Jason Stone, an entrepreneur and social influencer who has helped build Treadstone Performance, Gentlemens Mafia, Local Door Coupons and other businesses. Stone, who studied mechanical engineering in college, talks about how he started out by going to the repossession offices to buy cheap cars to fix up and resell or taking trips to the junkyard to strip unwanted automobiles of parts to sell online.

Since then, he's used that entrepreneurial spirit and his understanding of social media to grow his businesses and his personal brand -- his most well-known brand, the Millionaire Mentor, currently has 2.5 million followers on Instagram.
