Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Stephen Schwarzman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Blackstone Group.

Billionaire, philanthropist, and author, Stephen Schwarzman shares what it takes to succeed in business and life today.

Kevin Price speaks with Blackstone Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stephen Schwarzman about his NY Times bestselling book What It Takes: Lessons in the Pursuit of Excellence.

According to Blackstone, “Stephen A. Schwarzman is Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder of Blackstone, one of the world’s leading investment firms with $554 billion Assets Under Management (as of September 30, 2019). Mr. Schwarzman has been involved in all phases of Blackstone’s development since its founding in 1985. The firm has established leading investing businesses across asset classes, including private equity, where it is a global leader in traditional buyout, growth equity, special situations and secondary investing; real estate, where it is currently the largest owner of property in the world; hedge fund solutions, where it is the world’s largest discretionary hedge fund investor; and credit, where it is a global leader and major provider of credit for small, middle-market and other companies. Blackstone has also recently launched major new businesses dedicated to infrastructure and life sciences investing, as well as delivering the firm’s investment management expertise and products to insurance companies.”  He served as the Chairman of the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum, which was charged with providing direct input to the President of the United States from business leaders through a non-partisan, non-bureaucratic exchange of ideas. He has degrees from both Yale and Harvard.

Kevin Price, host of the Price of Business Show said he was inspired to have Schwarzman on after reading an interesting article from Sky News on how philanthropy among the mega wealthy of the US is different than those from others around the world. Schwarzman was used as an example of such and Price wanted to talk about those differences, his new book, and much more. This and more is covered in this important interview.
