Obviously this was a loaded question/situation, but I really want to put emphasis on the fact that being 28 years old means that you still have 60 more years of execution. So many people think that 28 is a good time to start playing it safe by buying a house, getting married, and settling down, when in actuality, you have so much time! Don't look at other people to get bearings on where you are in your life. Everyone has their own clock.

In this podcast I sit down with artist Juicy J to discuss the how the music industry has evolved.
As technology advance, the ability to consume content continues to progress as new streaming services arise. More and more control is being taken from the distributors and traditional middlemen of music, and being put into the hands of the artists themselves.

8:20 - When you pop, do you have a second move?

Why does everyone think trust is earned? To me, that process seems slow and egotistical. I believe that if you give your employees trust in the upfront, you’ll be blown away by the results.
In this podcast I focus on how CEOs can empower their team’s to facilitate scale, as well as the benefits of having a meaningful relationship with each of your employees.
:30 - why I trust my employees
3:40 - how a new hire can win
5:25 - you’re employees shouldn’t care as much as you do
What was your biggest takeaway from these 7 minutes? Tweet @GaryVee to let me know!
People overthink their businesses - who they hire, how they market and what they spend their money on.
If you're a start-up, I firmly believe you can make real noise with a small, scrappy team of three or four people. You just have to know what you need.
Regardless of your industry, documenting the journey is the best way to show potential customers who you are and what you do.
The following 8 minutes is a few different conversations with start-ups I'm working with. What was your biggest takeaway from this? Any feedback is helpful, tweet @GaryVee to let me know your thoughts.

A lot of companies are going to go out of business over the next decade for one main reason:
Humans don’t like change.
If you’re plan to be in business for the long term and you’re holding “what worked” in the past on a pedestal, I really hope this podcast changes the way you look at things.

Entrepreneurship today really needs to be more grounded in practicality.
Really implore you all to either start saving cash or invest your cash back into your business — the economy isn’t going to be good forever, and when things get slow, people aren’t going to talk about things like “passive income” the same way they do today.
0:00 - I worked 18 hours a day for 15 years
5:03 - Passive income needs practicality
15:55 - Changing your perspective on life

I’m so desperate to to get you all to the point where you’re executing on your ambitions. It’s why I put out so much content, spitting the same truth in different ways until something “breaks through.”
In this podcast, I talk about how to start and some mindset shifts to get past some of those common fears in the beginning.
1:45 - the fear of losing trumps the excitement of victory for so many people

If you’re 25, you could literally die and live an entirely new life up to this point, and you’d still barely be at “halftime.”
That’s why I tell so many 18, 22, 25, and 30 year olds to just put their head down and grind for a decade - if they have the ambition to build something for the rest of their lives.
In this podcast with Pencils of Promise founder Adam Braun, I talk more about what to do if you don’t want to go to college, what to do after high school, and more.
1:49 - advice on what to do after high school if you don't want to go to college
4:25 - understanding comes with doing

A few weeks ago, I put up an Instagram post where I asked people to make a video thanking people for following them.

There’s so much opportunity available today but what most people don’t realize is, this all goes away.
Eventually, Facebook and Instagram advertising will become like the Yellow Pages or billboards — that’s why I’m trying to get so many of you to “squeeze” while this opportunity is still available to you.
In this podcast, I talk about some tactics and strategies you can use to storytelling around your brand
0:30 - The internet is the single most underrated thing in society
1:30 - How to scale your local business through a TV show

I am starting a new series on the podcast - From My Inbox To Your Ears - where I will be sharing stories of people who have executed on the advice that I have been sharing for free through the years.
In the first episode, I share a real-life story of being happier when you make less than what you made in a 9-5 job that you hate, only because you decide to follow your passion and start loving what you do.
Tweet @garyvee and let me know your thoughts on this series.
It doesn’t actually matter to me whether you want to work 18 hours a day for the rest of your life, live on the beach, or watch Netflix all day.
I’m just putting pressure to get people’s actions to map to their ambitions.
Hope this episode helps a few of you figure out who you are, your strengths and weaknesses, and gives you a better sense of what you want to do.

It’s very rare that someone comes to me with an idea or a project and I really think it’s going to work.
Sometimes, I’ll respond to a 27 or 28-year-old kid and tell them it’s going to “work” if they stick with it for 7 or 8 years, and they’re disappointed — because they think “34” is old.
I address it in this podcast - really hope this breaks through to a few of you.

If you hate your Monday through Friday, you’re in big trouble. I really want to put pressure on this conversation — I see so many people today living for the weekend and cheering for Friday because it’s a “relief” from their week. Don’t get it twisted — I love family time and I’m not saying to not spend time with people you care about, but if you’re using the weekend as an “escape” from your week, you need to figure out an alternative. Hope this podcast helps put this in perspective for a few of you :) Let me know what you thought @GaryVee on Twitter
A lot of entrepreneurs and marketers miss the point when it comes to influencer marketing …
It’s not about who has the most followers or who’s “verified.” It’s about who has the attention of the people you’re trying to reach.
The truth is, many micro-influencers with 1,000 - 4000 followers will produce better business results for a company than a verified account with 300,000 followers because they have more “depth.”
I talk more about this and other strategies small businesses can use to grow sales in 2019 :
1. Charge more for your time
2. Understand the impact of Micro Influencers
3. Balance listening to the market & holding your conviction
Check it out and let me know what you thought @GaryVee on Twitter!
I really believe that 2019 is the year of LinkedIn. If you’re in B2B, it’s the single most important platform you need to be spending your time on.

This podcast mashup is about something that I am most passionate about and I also think a lot about. It's a constant challenge to create a wonderful work environment without creating entitlement and keep people fired up to work for you.
If you or someone around you is struggling with transitioning from being a practitioner to becoming a leader, please listen to this or share this with that person.
Would love to know your thoughts on this, so tweet @garyvee and let me know your POV.
A lot of people are in jobs they don’t like because they tie themselves down with expenses that don’t actually make them happy.
It’s an issue for so many … the truth is, a lot of people would rather “look the part” and posture to their friends like they’re building a business instead of doing “unsexy” things that’ll make them money and bring them closer to leaving jobs they don’t like.

People will realize how important this message is in a few years … watch and tweet me what you thought @GaryVee with the hashtag #GVAudioExperience
Loved this conversation with Joshua Coombes around how I think about Giving in a 2019 world, especially in the non-profit world.
I wrote Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook to explain this side of marketing, because most people that are offering to give, are really trying to take and most are not even aware of the vulnerability of their behavior.

This podcast is from a 4Ds session I gave in London — many of you have been asking me for more tactical, business-focused content and this format is a really good way for me to provide that for you all.
You’ll get to hear my thoughts on voice, why I think brand will be the only thing left, diversifying across platforms, why companies like 7-eleven are in deep trouble over the next few decades and more.

Coming out of Agent2021, I'm really really excited to put this mashup together- blowing out ways to get ahead as a realtor by leveraging building your personal brand - Lots of tactical tips in here that I hope you get a massive amount of value from, to help your sales and build connections <3
A lot of people don’t know this about me, but almost nothing makes me squeamish.
In this podcast, I sit down with Mark Cersosimo and answer some fun questions about whether I’d buy the Jets today (if that meant wearing Jordans every day for the rest of my life), whether I prefer toilet paper “over” or “under”, how many pigeons I think I could carry, and more.
And I do it while eating some really weird food and drinking “cat wine.”
This interview shows a different side of me that many of you may not have seen.
Tweet me if you’d ever try Clamdy Canes after listening to this episode @GaryVee ;)
The music industry isn’t what it used to be.
Years ago, you had to impress a handful of executives and pray that they liked your music — and if they didn’t, your career would never launch.
Now, you’ve got all these artists getting popular off of Soundcloud, Spotify, YouTube, and creating content on social media.
In this podcast, I talk with Dreezy — a rapper I really believe in — about the future of hip hop, and why I’m hanging out with rap artists as a CEO.
What up-and-coming artists do you think should be on my radar? Tweet me @GaryVee with the hashtag #GVAudioExperience ;)
Eugene Remm is one of those rare people who I both genuinely like as a human being, and also has insane skills professionally.
We share a super similar background — he also came to America from the Soviet Union and built successful businesses. And he did it by leveraging something I really believe in: doing free work for people who he admired.
Lots of great insights in this episode that you guys will enjoy — especially if you’re getting started in your career.
Question of the day: What’s the one business that you believe in that could be elevated by an experience?
Tweet me your answers @GaryVee with the hashtag #GVAudioExperience ;)
(The AskGaryVee Video episode will be available on my YouTube channel - youtube.com/garyvee - on Friday Feb 22nd at 1:37pm ET)
Lots of little clips from different meetings and events in today’s podcast … You’ll hear what went down at our little influencer meet up at Made in New York Pizza (where I’m an investor).
I also met with a young kid who needed to “get his mind rewired” — I talked to him about overcoming the same pressures that so many young people face with “figuring out” their lives.
The podcast starts off with my meeting with “Freeway” Rick Ross — a former drug dealer who’s now helping at-risk youth and women’s empowerment initiatives.
All fascinating conversations — especially the part where I talk to Rick Ross about entrepreneurship.
Listen and tweet me what you thought @GaryVee ;)
The reason I win so much is that I play the game in “reverse” of everyone else.
Everyone else is doing the same thing — posting the same type of pictures on Instagram, getting the same degrees from the same colleges, or running the same type of Ads — and wondering why they’re not disproportionately winning.
I expand on this concept more in this Q&A I did with fans at the GaryVee x VaynerSports meet and greet in Atlanta.
Tons of value in this one - especially if you’re looking to level up your personal brand or career.
Listen and tweet me what you thought and if you have a favorite moment in here @GaryVee
Atlanta is the epicenter of hip hop, and I get so excited when I come across artists from that region that I really believe in. This is a meeting I had with Lil’ Keed — an Atlanta rapper who performed at our VaynerSports x One37pm party.
He’s dropping an album in March 2019 with some really smart promotion strategies. Listen, and tweet me what you thought @GaryVee!
A typical day as Chairman of VaynerX, meeting CEO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK, Brian Scudamore and discussing his early years of starting from a single truck. Instagram live with Entrepreneur University, where they walked me through 5 steps to get me to speak at an event, well almost. Lil Keed came into the office and we talked about his next album drop and what's next. Ended the day with Rabiah Sutton, Founder and CEO of FWDthink.
Guys - really excited to put this one out. This call I took helps reimage the way that I think about home ownership, as I know there was some response to an instagram video I put out recently. I talk to someone who emailed me about my thoughts around home ownership, and how I think about real estate as a whole.
Really really excited about this one - I give some tactical tips to folks who came through for the #pickmegaryvee contest I did - and we dive in to help out new business owners. Anyone starting out should get massive value from this <3
Loved sitting down with this young dude, to chat about the importance of mental health - and the effects that a positive mental state can have on entrepreneurs. We sit down and chat about what happens when things don't go our way, what I want to be remembered for, and get deep into the nitty gritty of happiness.
Hey everyone - haven't put out one of these in a while, but I got a lot of feedback on the few that I did that you guys liked the fact that you were able to watch Dailyvee while doing other things, saving you time. Hope you all like this one - it was a big internal Vaynermedia day but there were a few key meetings that I think brought a lot of value.
I think you're all going to love this one, especially with Superbowl just passed us - I sit down with Laura Molen (NBCU) as the moderator, Anda Gansca (Knotch), and Stacy Taffet (PepsiCo) all as panelists to discuss what we think the effectiveness of superbowl ads are, diving into attention arbitrage, business tactics and more. This was a REALLY good one guys hope you enjoy <3
really fired up about this meeting I had with the legend, Quinn XCII - we sit down and chat about his come up, his music process and why I fuck with his music - he speaks his truths through it. We go heavy on our thoughts around artists putting out music that they think others want to hear, just to pander to the changing marketplace, and touch on chips on shoulders, musical DNA and political correctness.
This interview I did a short while back with President of SAP North America & Asia Pacific's Jen Morgan on her new podcast, A Call To Lead. One thing I really focused on heavily in this interview was the qualities I believe that every good leader should possess, especially when you're the CEO of a company - there's a lot in here for everyone, and I'd really appreciate it if you listened <3
It'd mean a ton if you'd check out Jen's podcast, over at https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/a-call-to-lead/id1437805769?mt=2
On this episode- I resurface my $1.80 strategy in a new way, with a winner of #pickmegaryvee. If you haven't see the original, you've gotta check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mVR5OZSgjw
This mega vlog documents my trip to Atlanta over Super Bowl weekend!
It’s my hope that these long form vlogs give you guys more context Into a real “day in the life” in my world. You’ll see me meet with fans, do Q&A, and more ;)
I sits and talks with a 49 year old YouTuber and entrepreneur to dive down into the reality of what “giving without expectations” means. We discuss the importance of defining what “winning” is to you, without letting anyone else’s leverage influence that & making sure that you’re sure in your intent with everything you do.
We got deep on this episode- sitting down with the crew behind the Cannonball Mindset podcast. We chat legacy, and what that leaving behind one really means, the Jets, fake entrepreneurs and the three things that I think I learned from my mom. There's a ton in here that I think you'll really enjoy <3
A lot of people ask me questions that are hard to answer because I normally don’t have the time to fully understand the context on what is being asked. During my first live stream of 2019, I took the time get to the heart of some of the questions I am most frequently asked and wanted to share these answers with all of you… Hopefully you can extract a ton of value from this ;)
Really loved this interview I did a little while back - talking really heavy into how I split my time between work and family, and what that dynamic looks like (also why I believe nobody else should be able to judge anyone's work/life choices), the importance of managing expectations of employees and developing a positive culture and whether or not I set goals for myself :)

This mashup was put together by some really really fired up fans in the community & it's one I really really love. Check them out here:
Super fired up about this talk I did at ComplexCon with Karen Civil, Chris "Drama" Pfaff, and Kareem "Biggs" Burke diving deep into what it takes to succeed in today's entrepreneurial landscape
There’s a reason why real estate gets hit the hardest during a recession: Everyone is focused on short term sales over brand. That’s why I genuinely believe I’d dominate if I decided to start a brokerage. I would take lower commissions, build brand, and win in the long term. In this Q&A, I answer a lot of questions from real estate agents at Agent2021 about how to leverage social media to sell real estate in 2019!
This mashup is one that's really important to me - focusing around self doubt, which I believe isn't something you necessarily put on yourself, but are inflicted from a young age from a multitude of different places. It starts off with a call from the Empathy Wines livestream last week & branches off from there. The clips used in this mashup are:

This interview from 2013 puts forward a building block in providing value to others - talking about how I was able to audit myself, utilizing others as sounding boards to further figure out what I'm good at, and how to utilize it ...
SUPER excited about this one - a fireside chat I did while down in Miami at Agent2021, VaynerExperience's event for a multitude of career tracks and positions. We talk being both a content company & agent, and answer a ton of questions about creating content for different industries. <3
Couldn't be more excited about this original podcast interview I just did with two people I'm super close to an excited about - Greg Lyons, CMO of Pepsico and Jen Saenz, CMO of Frito Lay. We chat about their brands' Super Bowl commercials and activations and lay out on the table the changes that we're all seeing in advertising & Super Bowl itself. Really important episode for anyone that's interested in advertising & marketing here!
For more and more companies, you don’t need a college degree to land the job you want. The way you get experience and skills is by working for free for people you admire in your industry.
After seeing how people reacted to the 7.5 hour DailyVee from my trip to Dubai, I told my team I wanted to put out more long form “mega vlogs” so you guys can get more context into my day …
So we did another one: A raw, 6.5+ hour video from my trip to Miami to give you full context on the things I talk about (empathy, worth ethic, optimism, etc) and how they play out in an actual “day in my life.”
And for the first time … we’re putting it out as a podcast for you guys ;)
Fired up for this keynote I did a few months ago in Phoenix, Arizona, talking about the similarities between “traditional” marketing and the digital age. Attention has and always will be the goal and asset, the medium is the only thing changing. This was a big keynote, would love if you all listened ❤️
So so happy that I got to sit down with these absolute hustlers, to talk content production - how to re-use, re-purpose and re-fresh content - developing an incredibly autonomous relationship with my team, and how that helps me to scale myself through trust and acknowledgement, and why admitting and embracing your mistakes is massively important.
Would love if you checked out these ladies and showed them some love:Website: www.theoryhardware.com Podcast: www.theoryafterhours.com Facebook: www.facebook.com/theoryhardware Instagram: @theoryhardware Twitter: @theoryhardware
Super super fired up about this 4D's session I recently did at Agent 2021 in Miami, talking business growth, the falloff of motivation & repurposing content
Would love if you all checked out 4ds here: https://vaynermedia.com/service/4ds/
With Agent2021 just passed, I thought this interview would be fitting- I sat down and chopped it up around all things real estate, from how you should be setting expectations, to marketing saving time - and how that can be massively effective to pitch to clients. There's a ton of tips & tricks in here <3
People seem to struggle with how to make content or fear of being boring, but don't realize that speaking your truth is all you need.
When you accountability on a pedestal over everything else, your life will change. When you realize everything is your fault, you become liberated.
Hannah Bronfman stopped by on today's episode and we discussed what you should be doing as soon as you wake up, my obsession with fascia but also some insights on social media. Enjoy!
What's up guys, today's episode is full of keynote segments I did in NYC at the Twitter Headquarters, a VaynerMentors session and at Luminary
You need to be honest and true to yourself. Faking it till you make will only get you so far. So stop trying to fake it and start doing what is true to you.
One of the biggest problems in our society is how we handle judgement and the opinions of others. But you must realize that you have ONE LIFE and it is better to live it for yourself than for someone else.
I was on the Agents of Compass podcast 2 days ago which is a podcast for real estate agents. I gave some fire advice for people trying to grow their real estate businesses but this can also be applied to anyone trying to grow their social media presence also. It would mean the world to me if you listened to this podcast! Enjoy!
In today's episode, I wanted to discuss why I believe 80% of NFL Players Will Go Bankrupt. Sounds hard to believe, but take a listen and you will get why.
I constantly get asked why I curse so much and the easy answer is, this is just who I am. But in today's podcast episode, I give a full explanation to those who can't see past a little 4 lettered word.
On this episode Gary sits with hip hop artist A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. During this chat, Gary gives fire advice for artists to hack exposure.
People are always talking about the great things I've accomplished but today's episode is to show that there have been plenty of mistakes I made throughout my career. And guess what, I don't dwell and cry about my losses. I rise like a Phoenix, come back and stick to your face!
Really really enjoyed sitting down with Alison Lebovitz to flush out what people don't show about being entrepreneurs - it's lonely, and it really does take on a role as a second child. Anyone that considers themselves an entrepreneur really needs to give this one a listen.
Hey guys! Super excited to release this podcast on 4 key ways to make decisions faster.
This super strategic conversation that I had with popular YouTubers, the McClure family started off talking about producing content at volume & scale, quickly moving into creative control between my team & I, and go on to explain the value I place in the TeamGaryVee account, as well as the rest of my team's personal brands because by putting them on, it also helps me. Lots of valuable content in here for any content creator out there <3
Check out their videos here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNm8WjumwijTwIVmCOLi0KQ
So much of what people think I say about "hustle" is taken out of context or perspective. It's not about how much sleep you're not getting or how much "time" you're putting in. It's the quality of the work, whether you're really putting enough quality time into what you're building and not just trying to "flaunt"
This call I had with a young man while I was live streaming the other day is one you all need to hear - he calls in asking for advice around marketing, and ends up with some powerful advice ;)
People always say they think it is funny that me being the “digital guy” writes books. It’s not because I like to read, it’s because other people like to read and want to read my content in book form. Direct mail may be an older method of marketing compared to the things the internet is capable of, but for many businesses, it can still work tremendously in their favor.
This was a Q&A that I did on Instagram Live, spontaneously during my winter break, hopping in with a few of you to answer the questions you had around building businesses, self awareness, pitching yourself and more- really great stuff here <3
This fireside chat / Q&A I did with my good friend Patrick from KSwiss & Shoe Palace during the SP25 launch - lots of fire in this. We talk the value of hard work, the importance of happiness in your work, and when I really had a feeling that I'd "Made it".
The amount of people that spend their time dwelling on their actions from 3 years ago is completely unfounded - If you're pissed about the time you wasted on your phone this morning, move on. Its already happened and focus on what really matters, the future.
this is an absolutely all - time interview, debuting as the first guest on Travis Mills' podcast, ADHD. We talk garage saleing, why entrepreneurship's suddenly become so cool and the bull shit of 18-24 year old "life coaches"
Would love if you checked out Travis' podcast:
on Apple Podcasts:
Hey guys, trying something new here. I know a lot of you LOVE the Dailyvee series I put out on YouTube, so I'm going to try to bring it to the podcast, in the form of the episode + commentary from the video editors, me or the rest of my team. Really really excited to see what you think about this one - hit me up on twitter & let me know if you want more narrated content like this <3 Hope everyone has a great new year
Welcome to Inside 4Ds, VaynerMedia’s tactical workshop servicing marketers and operators of all size businesses. On this episode we go deep and long on personal brand. From the motivations behind building yours to the team you assemble behind it, what does it take to build your personal brand today? Find out on this episode of Inside 4Ds.
This was really an all-time keynote, getting up in front of the crowd in Dubai to talk about the MASSIVE change in entrepreneurship, and how and why I believe putting entrepreneurship on a pedestal will change once the economy collapses. I also go in and talk about the opportunity in the middle east, elaborating on what I see in the region, then pivoting to talk about converting content for different regions - like I do with my content - to broaden the reach of a brand.
Loved sitting down with these absolute power players while I was in Dubai to chat my thoughts on how CPG brands are going to evolve in the coming years - and how and why I believe Vaynermedia will make a massive difference in the way they operate.
This is a FIRE mashup that I'm super super happy about - really detailing out my thoughts around all of the pillars of patience. Hope you're all having a great holiday week & looking forward to next year <3
this fireside Q&A that I did back in November in Phoenix was really really on fire - bringing up the benefit of getting to know your employees, and how that really can affect their happiness, my thoughts around the future of crowdfunding, and why I don't consume ANYONE else's content. Lots of good stuff here <3
Kicking off my trip to the UAE, I was honored to host this breakfast round table, taking questions around company culture, identifying culture shifts, and the importance of creating great content to boost a brand's presence in an increasingly mobile world
Wanted to make this, really just expanding & closing out 2018, and showing you all what I'm most excited for and fired up about in 2019
Loved hanging with the guys over at Virgin Radio while I was in Dubai, talking about how recognizing fads and growth ahead of time was a massive opportunity - investing in Google ads, Facebook ads, a YouTube channel and more helped me grow my brand to where it is today, as well as Wine Library and Vaynermedia. We then get deep and start talking around the mentality that arises when you stop caring about other people's opinions, and roll into a cool live Q&A.
I don't want to watch netflix, go skiing, go to a beer garden - none of that sounds FUN to me. But it might be fun to you. This quick mashup is 100% about doing the things that YOU enjoy and not letting other people dictate what you should be doing with your time... If you want to work, work.
Really enjoyed sitting down with Kara on her podcast, taking a deeper look into the the real estate industry & the people behind it. We sit down and chat content distribution, being a salesperson, and how self awareness applies to the majority of roles - recognizing what your strengths and weaknesses are.

Loved loved loved sitting down with Jason Khalipa, sitting down to talk about how I have my schedule down to a science, how that integrates with my family, and how and why I view needing to make myself happy to make the other important stuff in my life happy. Then, we dive into how I scaled Vaynermedia, and why I absolutely love garage saleing.
This is a super insightful interview that I share a lot that I don't typically talk about, so I'd love if you gave it a listen.
I'd love if you checked out Jason's podcast over at https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/amrap-mentality-with-jason-khalipa/id1438561574?mt=2

Making business decisions for short term gain will hurt your company in the long run. At this private dinner, I did a Q&A with the guests and gave them tactical business advice to the context of their businesses and situations that I think all of you will benefit from too 😉
Super super excited for this one - sitting down with Chattanooga prep school students, talking about middle schol, the way the transition from high school to real life has changed, and how popular trends change but the idea around them remains the same
Guys, this was a big one, and a type of episode that I want to start pushing out a lot more. This is from a VIP strategy session in Phoenix where I sat down with a bunch of people to talk the economic collapse, extremes, the event business and a bunch more. This is one you need to hear!
These three different original pieces all include different themes of winning - I go in and talk about family businesses and what it was like growing Wine Library, Vaynermedia, Vaynersports all as what essentially started as a family business - then move into talking about a subject that stems from the topic of family - not letting anyone else judge what you're doing, moving into making sure you're living humbly and not being fancy.
It blows me away that people don’t realize that complaining about someone is actually giving them mental leverage over you.
As I reflect on it, the reason I don’t complain is probably more out of competitiveness than anything else — I just don’t want to give you the satisfaction that you have any say in how my life is going to play out. No one has say -- not my teachers, not the current state of political correctness, nothing.
This isn’t coming from a negative place, or wanting to secretly hurt other people that have hurt me. It’s about coming from a place of confidence and control.
SUPER excited about this brand new content series I'm developing - partnering up with Phil Toronto on my team to sit down and film pitch meetings with companies that he brings me as potential investments. Today, we have Glowbar, which is run by two massively intelligent women that are looking to revolutionize the beauty industry.

Stop complaining, stop judging, stop making excuses for yourself or others - once you start recognizing these super important facts, you begin to really excel...
Loved loved loved having Maddie & her father on the show - Maddie's a super special 8th grader who took her love for creating, slime and entrepreneurship and started a business in both selling slime & hosting events in the space. This was a really cool episode that I hope you all enjoy <3

I genuinely believe that the world is giving the “wrong” information to 20-somethings. This is not the time to go “safe” and “practical.” This is the time to be massively risk oriented. It’s time to go live in Bali for a year, or try to become Beyonce, or live with 8 roommates in a studio apartment hustling towards your passion. I have empathy for things like student debt … but this is the time to make the high risk moves around the things that’ll make you the happiest, even if you have to work more (or take a night shift job while you focus on your passion during the day). My advice for college grads who are trying to figure it out: Either work for someone who you want to become, or go all in on your own craft.
This keynote started out with a serrrriously fire Q&A - talking about the decision going to university - and how entrepreneurship being on a pedestal forces a view of "you need to be successful by 22". Then going in to expanding on why I think eSports is going to be such a massively successful industry and what I mean when I say "you need to be making 500 pieces of content".
So excited to have had the chance to sit down with Shiggy and talk everything about building personal brand, speaking gigs, the dynamics around working with family & a ton more - this was a really fun meeting that I think you'll all enjoy
Through a lot of these 10 clips I think you'll get a very good idea of what I think the most effective practices are with regards to music distribution & promotion - talking with a lot of big names and talent in the music industry - producers, artists and more, this is a big one <3
No one knows the exact day, but I can tell you this for sure- The economy is going to collapse. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not next year, but we’re not going to live the rest of our lives in a bullish market. When the economy collapses, here’s what will happen...
Super fired up to have the chance to sit down with my man, Josh Peck to talk about the new Dark Clouds shoe, how Dark Clouds relates to happiness, mental health, success & entrepreneurship. I go in on flipping cards, talking about my thoughts on international growth, and fake environments.
If you asked me whether I’m more scared for kids growing up in the projects or trust fund babes? I’d say trust fund babies. Hands down. Kids growing up with struggle know how to grind and deal with adversity. But when you’ve had everything handed to you your whole life, you get soft … and it’s harder to deal with things like economic meltdowns or the problems that come with entrepreneurship. Wish more people understood that the biggest privilege you could have is mental privilege … people with money don’t always have it made!!

Super fired up to have done this talk in LA with my friend Michael Ovitz, going in depth on the entertainment industry, success, entrepreneurship and a ton more. This was a really really big talk that I'd love for you to take a listen to <3
I'd love if you hit up Summit, who put on this talk here:instagram.com/summit facebook.com/summit twitter.com/summit https://www.linkedin.com/company/summitco/
On my recent trip to Dubai, I had the chance to sit down and do this really fun show, talking about my thoughts on the UAE, the middle east, my thoughts on digital media in the area, and how I'm able to produce so much content on such a large scale.
Loved sitting down with these guys at Congruent, a digital agency based in Syracuse, NY to go over their growth & strategy plan to help them build their business using our VaynerMentors offering through Vaynermedia - great chat & follow up from them integrated into this segment and a lot of value I think some of you can take away.

This throwback to my interview with Colin Cowherd I think is a really great example of my predictions coming to fruitition - we sit down and talk about my thoughts around the boom of Snapchat, the use of social media in presidential campaigns, dealing with negativity & of course, the Jets. Really cool content here <3
Super super super happy to have been on my close friend Bobbi Brown's new podcast - I loved sitting down with her to talk garage sales, why you can't teach entrepreneurship & work/life balance.
Go listen to Bobbi's podcast: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/long-story-short-with-bobbi-brown/id1438285801?mt=2
There's no machine or algorithm to scaling an IG account - this is one big big theme to this talk, really digging down into making sure you're going about trying to scale / sell your product on Instagram the way that's going to work - sitting down and DMing for awareness. I also get into people that think they're "too ahead of the curve" and don't understand that they're just shit - not ahead of shit.
This was an all-time keynote in Poland, full of a massive Q&A section - I start out talking about how attention is the most valuable asset, and my trip into Poland, a country I've never been to before, detailing why I didn't look up from my phone at all - talking about how billboards no longer hold the value they have. This was a big big big keynote on attention value - really one you should hear <3
This FIRE mashup that I've put together helps put together a lot of what I believe, and a lot of the questions you all ask around starting & growing a business - tons of fire here I hope u enjoy <3
I hear a lot of people saying they're afraid that "social media is ruining their kids" or that "they spend too much time in front of screens" and i completely disagree with it. this statement can apply to every single generation, not just today, and I think this is a really important conversation we need to be having.
Really hyped up for this keynote because it's such a different topic than I usually touch on - I spoke at the Hall of Flowers, a Cannabis conference which is a new industry I'm beginning to touch in with Green Street, an ad agency geared towards the rising cannabis market.
Throwing it back to a super cool episode of WLTV - tasting 4 of my favorite thanksgiving wines from back in 2008. Hope you all have a great thanksgiving tomorrow!
Anyone who's a YouTube or Instagram creator needs to listen to this one - I go deep down into the reasons your brand isn't building the way you want it to, and a big core of that is due to you not respecting the audience you already have & engaging with them, replying to comments. I expand on my idea of why right now is the best time to be building a personal brand - and why it's easier now than ever. Hope u like this one <3
Super happy to have my great friend Scott Harrison, founder of Charity:Water come on the show for this iconic 300th episode! We sit down and chat about his charity, the issue of unclean or non-existent water facing millions of people on earth, and take calls from viewers that are starting their own charities & more.
It'd mean a lot to me if you checked out Scott's book, Thirst here: https://www.amazon.com/Thirst-Story-Redemption-Compassion-Mission/dp/1524762849
Welcome to Inside 4Ds, VaynerMedia’s tactical workshop servicing marketers and operators of all size businesses.

Was really happy to do this quick interview with Elvis Duran while I was at ComplexCon - we chat about what 12 songs I'd put on Vinyl and why those songs have meaning to me.
Check out Elvis' new project 12on12Vinyl here: instagram.com/12on12vinyl
Hit up Elvis: https://www.instagram.com/elvisduran/
loved loved loved this talk I gave at Facebook London, talking about my history in the sales game stemming from back when I was young and selling baseball cards, car washes, lemonade and focusing on consumer research and attention before I even really know what it was to sell - and how using one piece of content to distribute in multiple places is a massive key right now to distributing at scale.
This is a suuuuper cool throwback that I don't talk about a lot, where I go into my predict governments and officials utilizing Facebook & Twitter to create influence over their political agenda.
LOVED having these absolute icons come through to sit down & chop it up - for those of you that don't know Cypress Hill, they're a legendary west coast hip hop group that basically stated the scene in the 90's and released the chart topping hit "Insane In The Brain". We sit and chat about their come up, collaborating with other artists, and their newest project, Elephants On Acid.
Check out Elephants on Acid: https://cypresshill.com/
These three complete fire films all have one overarching theme in common: the best time to start doing is NOW. Even if it's a risk, if it's something you really REALLY want to do, right now is the time to take that leap. Then, I go in and talk focused towards kids across the world & how the pressure in a lot of asian markets focuses heavy and prevents kids from really achieving what they want - finishing with a short film called "Bet On Yourself", which expands on self awareness, knowing yourself and work ethic - and how these all play into focusing heavily on not caring about what other people think & not letting other's opinions impact your success. <3
This was a HUGE episode with Tom. Tom's a good friend & one of the first clients of VaynerTalent & VaynerSpeakers, and an all around great guy. We sit down and talk about his come up, starting Quest nutrition, what patience means to the both of us and go in on what you should say to anyone who asks "well where do you see yourself in 5/10 years?"
Check out Tom here: https://www.instagram.com/tombilyeu/
This may be the MOST FIRE episode of the AskGaryVee show we've ever had. Besides the call-in's, the dynamic between T-pain and I was on another planet. Hearing him talk about both his highs and lows in life this far is something I think we can all take something away from, knowing that being on the top is just as possible as being on the bottom. We took calls from some hugely energetic fans, including a former dancer for T-pain, and ended up on one of the best calls yet, a entrepreneurial house cleaner from the midwest. You're not going to want to miss this AskGaryVee episode, because it may just be the best yet !!
40 Year olds... this one is for you.
Super fired up about this episode - sitting down to chat current culture, trends, entrepreneurship, business and everything in between with these three - check them out here:

This was an all-time keynote where I sat down with Stephanie Rhule at the 92nd St Y, to discuss how entrepreneurship is really a talent, building a business during an economic downturn & why you can totally still become an entrepreneur at 35.
really really loved sitting down with my close friend Danielle Snyder, on her new podcast NO FILTER, talking about everything from why I spew nothing but positivity, how it took me a long time to build Wine Library TV, the absolute lack & importance of patience and we dive into the dead brands that I'd revive.
Check out Danielle's Podcast NO FILTER here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/no-filter-with-danielle-snyder/id1397582544?mt=2
Super fired up for this episode - I had a really great time at ComplexCon this past saturday, chopping it up with all of you. I put together 5 of my favorite clips from that day, talking about getting rid of self entitlement, boosting a business & more - hope u love it.
If you haven't checked out the Dark Clouds yet - hit them up here: kswiss.com/darkclouds
I sit down to talk why esports is blowing up, MLB licensing issues and why putting on a jersey doesn’t mean that YOU’RE winning with Rich Eisen.
Everyone has a different way of managing their time & making sure that they're being as productive as possible - this mashup goes a little deeper into how I stay on track and what changes & hacks I've made to make everything as efficient as possible in my day-to-day.
Super fired up for this keynote in Sydney - focusing on patience, why creating content specific to different platforms is necessary at scale, how you should be using my content to enable you to pursue what you want & ending with a massive Q&A.
Fired up for this one from Toronto, Canada - literally jumping in the back of a bus to do a quick interview with Short Bus Talks to dive down into how empathy got me through school, not grades, and why positivity is the true key to winning.
Really fired up about this one... sitting down with one of my favorite people, Roman Atwood to just put out nothing but positivity on his vlog... I thought this one that could be really important for you all to hear this morning.
really loved sitting down with these people to kick off the start of their VaynerMentors relationship with us - Lindsey's Suite Deals Furniture is a retail furniture outlet based in Florida that came to VM for help with their business - we sit down and talk retail marketing strategies, hiring employees and more. Really fired up about this one.
Learn more about Vaynermentors here: http://garyvee.com/vaynermentorspod
Fired up about this meeting I had with Gashi - breaking down the holes we see in the music industry & why we think that even artists that are offered a deal should be wary. loved meeting with this dude and chatting about his come up and getting that one song that pops out.
Fired up to have my man Cha back on the show for the 2nd time, this time talking mental health in relation to his brand new book that's launching, Shook One where he talks about anxiety & his struggles - this is a beast of a show, were we take calls related to entrepreneurial struggles due to anxiety, shyness, and relationships - really an insightful episode I think everyone should listen to.
Get Cha's new book here: https://www.amazon.com/Shook-One-Anxiety-Playing-Tricks/dp/1501193252
Really fired up for this one - there's so much good content in here, ranging from talking about powerful social platforms for businesses, to focusing on who you're really putting out your content for, why I don't let anything bother me and how I keep business, life and my motivation in sight.
This mashup is the one for anyone looking to learn more about the wine industry as a whole - thoughts on how to sell, distribute & produce wine, as well as taste. There's a lot in here that'll help you dive into the industry and have a little fun this weekend.
really think this clip from #askgaryvee with Tony Robbins can bring a ton of value to you - you hear Tony and I talk about an ideal we have in common, that we both view the key to winning financially in life as being humble and not buying "dumb shit"... This is supported by one of my favorite original films, really breaking down why patience is the game in long term growth.
This is some of the greatest advice that I could offer to people in their 20s. Please, let this be the one "motivational" video that pushes you to take a leap and take extra risk because if you don't do it, you'll regret it. If I can really get you to understand the practicality of patience, you'd be shocked by the outcome... trust me ;)
Fired up by this mashup - I know a lot of you have been starting businesses, and if you're working in client services, there's a lot of questions to be asked, since you're essentially communicating with other people. I lay out a few common questions & pain points and answer them in this one.
fired up for this - the 1st ever Vaynermedia 4Ds in London !!!
Just some thoughts from an airplane... On my way back to the US and I'm thinking about unhappy some people are in their current situation and how much better they could be by just making a few changes and learning how to flip and garage sale and re sell... Hope this brings some value to you this Monday <3
Really fired up about this interview - I sat down with Rafal, on his new show Producing Positivity to talk being an immigrant, the part of my life that I think I was massively lucky, versus the part of my life I think is work and hustle, how I decide when I should and shouldn't be the person talking in the room and why I love being around positivity, offense and practicality so much <3
Excited about this interview I did for Sports Illustrated, talking about what Baseball players can do to better market themselves on social media, and how the MLB and MLBAM (MLB's media company) is holding their players back by keeping them out of the mainstream... Cool interview that departs from some of my other content - hope you enjoy <3
SUPER super fired up about this #askgaryvee with my good friend, Matt Higgins. Matt's a guest Shark on Shark Tank this weekend, and I loved havning him come by to tell his story of how he went from from growing up in Bayside, Queens, NY to working for the mayor of NYC during one of New York's toughest times to becoming a successful investor and VC.
Throwing it back to one of the best pieces of content of all time - when I did a massive Reddit AMA, sourcing questions from the platform. I Dive right into this one, especially if you missed it online. It's an entirely different experience ;). I answered what I regret from my teens and 20's, why my ultimate vision is, the words that I live by and SO much more. Give this a listen and let me know exactly what you thought.
Really really happy to have baby Ariel back on the show - a lot of you may remember her from episode 198 with both Ariel & Ariana Renee. Loved having her back on the show to talk about what she's currently doing, and how her career has grown. Then we talk to a few callers, asking about whether or not Snapchat is a detriment for their kids & why it's SUPER important not to care about followers & likes and how a super dad should talk to his up and coming musica.ly star about it.
Hit up Ariel here: https://www.instagram.com/babyariel/
and grab her new book!: https://www.amazon.com/Dreaming-Out-Loud-Baby-Ariel/dp/1982552212
This was a segment from the "Daily Digital Deep Dive" (4Ds), one day business consultation for small businesses and personal brands that took place on October 12th. If you want to take part in the next 4Ds, you can get tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.com/o/vaynermedia-1119460753
To have a winner’s mentality, you have to stop caring what other people think. You’ve gotta get quiet in your own head.
So many people make big life decisions based on other people’s opinions. You care so much about what your mom, dad, brother, or friends think that you’re allowing them to dictate your actions in life.
At the core of it, the barriers so many people have aren’t really about “money” or “time.” They’re about opinions.
It’s the biggest reason so many people are unhappy right now. Because they value someone else’s opinion more than their own.
Once you get past that, life can get real good.
Here’s how you can get quiet in your own head:
It's not all private jets & fancy parties & stacks of dollars - being an entrepreneur is hard, it's lonely and it takes time, hard work, energy and sacrifice - and there's a lot of things that you don't hear. Entrepreneurship is cool right now, a bubble and I really hope that in 10 years everyone who thought they could build the business they wanted is gonna end up in the dust. <3
Really really fired up with how this keynote went for COTY, talking to their employees, focusing heavily into why company culture is so important to building a successful company, making employees feel safe and promoting productivity.
This was an all-time episode, where I sat down with my good friend Scooter Braun - known for a number of top tier performers & musicians like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Psy and a ton more. Loved having him come in to talk about his views on the music and entertainment industry & how he started his company, SB Projects, representing massive talent - we take calls from viewers asking questions about getting signed, and give away an internship to Scooter's company ;)
Serious serious fire here, would be massively grateful if you'd listen <3
Hit up scooter here:
this is a HUGE one... really loved chopping it up and eating some wings with Sean & the Hot Ones team, seeing how far I really can go eating hot wings & talking. I break down my insights on why I'm interested in the up coming hip hop artists that I am, the best cereals, talking growth of the show & talking about why the advertising industry is still behind.
One of the biggest mistakes I see people make are they think they're pigeon holed into sticking to the one thing they've been doing - but a bit part of figuring out what your thing is, is tasting more than one thing and changing up what you're doing, if you're not happy with it.
Super super fired up for this #AskGaryVee in front of a LIVE audience, with my good friends Shonduras & Sean Holladay. We get deep in this episode, sourcing questions from an audience that bartered their way into meeting me this night ... and diving into Shaun & Sean's backgrounds, focusing on their come up on social media & in their businesses.
Check out Shonduras here: www.instagram.com/shonduras
and Sean Holladay here: www.instagram.com/seanholladay
and barter a chance to be at a similar event here: http://garyvee.com/barter
Fired up for this keynote I did in Orlando, Florida - a massive theme here is that it doesn't matter if what you're putting out is the highest quality possible, or rather that it shouldn't be stopping you from putting out content - the attention right now is so underpriced that even mediocre content has a good chance at performing exceptionally.
Fired up for these super-tactical business meetings, chatting with an apparel company looking for advice on growing & marketing their brand, a fan who bartered his way into a meeting with me that's looking for advice on how to scale his bartering business in Canada & expanding on how Pinterest & Facebook are still so valuable for retail brands.
The cannabis industry has massive potential because, as I see it, it's primarily build up of young people and entrepreneurs. Frankly, I'd go as far to as that the cannabis industry is going to make a huge impact in the marketing field because of the upfront restrictions they will face regarding being unable to use Facebook and Instagram ads.
FIRED UP for this MASSIVE mashup, almost 2 straight hours of total fire detailing a ton of the pillars of my main content & more, with @Teamgaryvee breaking up the voiceovers.
Super super excited for this one because I think it gives a lot of context into both the ways I think about starting at a new company, and growing within one in general - I talk to a bunch of employees at Vaynermedia, talking about everything from leaving to travel for a year, to meeting new people, to struggling with expectations at a new job - there's so much value in here I know you'll really get something out of.
Really excited to have Mark & Jeff, creators of IKONICK, a DTC art brand that Scooter Braun and I recently partnered with. We talk about how they started Ikonick, and take a few calls that were absolute fire. Debating with a nursing on whether or not they should pursue the passion that they're aiming for in the medical field, and why blaming the customer never works.
Hit up the guests here:
FIRED UP for this keynote I did in the DC area, really honing in on why the internet is such a game changer for modern businesses & entrepreneurship - expanding into what it's like being an entrepreneur during the time that entrepreneurship got cool (now) and how and why it's changed so much over the last 40 years. I also talk directly to the people that think they can't make $100,000 a year, and why I really believe it's so easy now to accomplish this goal.
The successful mindset of an entrepreneur comes down to not complaining or dwelling. I'm hearing so many people speak about their massive ambitions but simultaneously talk about how they don't work on the weekends or that they go home everyday at 6:00 PM, and then they have the audacity to complain that the results aren't coming fast enough. You NEED to be patient and understand that the only reason you want the results to come quickly is because you're trying to cover an insecurity and prove it to someone... Please, stay in your own head and put in the work. You can't sit down on the couch, think about a million dollars, and then expect to find a million dollars in your bank account. It just doesn't work like that... you have to put in the work.
I really wanted to share this talk about trusting employees, giving them trust and then learning how they operate from there rather than the traditional "trust is earned" stance. Also, for anyone that is confused, because I'm a very alpha character and I believe that the new "man" is growing in emotional intelligence and "soft skills". Kindness, empathy, and gratitude, which were once considered "soft" are now becoming cool.
This is a really fire mashup revolving around balancing your life & sleep that a lot of you need to hear ... hustling doesn't necessarily mean that you're working 22 hours a day without sleeping - I think sleep is one of the most important things - it matters what you're doing doing those 16 hours that you're awake. I also talk about how I think about "work/life" balance and my methods for keeping what I see as balance.
Fired up to have my long time friend & killer entrepreneur Scott Belsky on the show - Scott is one of the founders of Behance, and has been involved in a number of other creative endeavors, working with Adobe, Sweetgreen, and other companies. We take a few questions from my First In Line Facebook group & a few calls from the audience, answering questions about starting content production & more.
I sit down and talk with The Eighth, a fairly new retail business attacking the white space they saw in the men's luxury underwear market. We discuss their early days in researching and identifying the market, luxury branding, SEM and SEO approaches, influencer marketing, content creation and the importance of documenting versus creating. For the listeners that have asked in the past, this is some really good insight into how I approach introductory business meetings, evaluate the viability of new businesses, and suggest marketing strategies. Thanks for listening, excited to hear your thoughts and learnings from this one.
SUPER FIRED UP for this #askgaryvee, with one of my favorite people in the world, Michael Ovitz, co-founder of one of the largest talent agencies in the world, Creative Artists Agency (CAA). Michael stops by to talk his new book, tell a few stories about his time at CAA and take calls from the audience.
Check out Michael's Book, "Who Is Michael Ovitz?" here: https://www.amazon.com/Who-Michael-Ovitz-Memoir/dp/0753553368
Super super super fired up for this keynote with the Alabama Crimson Tide, really spitting fire around what they should be focused on during this extremely important time in their careers & lives - <3
These four fire original films are the perfect thing to get you going this Monday - Focused around being happy, the change of focus in attention & why ambition & drive are what you need to have in anything you're doing, there's a little bit here for everyone <3
this clip while I was in Florida giving a talk really brought out some different thoughts and ideas that I don't talk about a lot - focusing heavily on Drock asking about the way I parent & run a business versus the way my father did, which lead into a discussion about the nuances of running a business & being a parent, while still building the world you want to - really really cool stuff here that I think a lot of you will enjoy hearing.
If your social media strategy on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and/or LinkedIn is focusing on macro/pillar content like a vlog, you're making a huge mistake. The micro content (small highlight clips) that is created from the pillar content is so much more impactful on social.
I sit down with Lightspeed Ventures partner Aaron Batalion and Product Hunt founder Ryan Hoover to talk about their backgrounds in coding and development, how entrepreneurship is blending together into tech culture, and our thoughts on emerging cryptocurrency.
Super super excited for this episode with my close friend Beth Comstock, former Vice Chair of GE - Beth's new book is out now, so we're super excited to have her come in and talk about what it means, how she became one of the most powerful execs ever & a we answer a few questions - complete FIRE in this one
Pre order Beth's book right here: https://amzn.to/2QI7A1E
Really enjoyed writing this article about what I did in my late 20's and how I felt it was a pivotal part of my life - reflecting on what I did and what I'd do differently, but also talking about my points of view on what your options are in your late 20's.
This interview I did in Toronto a little while back was really fun, focusing around being an immigrant, culture, the reason entrepreneurship is becoming cool, and the reason that influencers are such a hot term & tool right now - really cool little interview that I think a lot of you will love.

Speed... is one of the big things that I push as an incredibly important factor when running a business & pushing out content - taking forever for something to be perfected, especially when it's a piece of social content ... it's more important to be timely than it is to "perfect" something, and this mashup expands on this ideal <3
I understand what you're going to do before you do it. That's why I've been able to become successful. I understand attention and where the market is going which is why I'm able to capture that and push it towards sales, brand awareness, or any other area.
This fire little clip from a meeting I had earlier this year really sparked some good points - if you're young and terrified that you don't know what you want to do, just taste everything you possibly can.
This was an ALL TIME episode of #podSessions, jamming hard with these three absolute killers - We talk about business, our motivations, what we're currently obsessed with & get into music, social media & a ton more. Really fire episode coming out of this one - hope u enjoy!

Really really really excited to refresh this episode of AskGaryVee where the main man, my father Sasha Vaynerchuk joined me on the show to answer some tactical questions about growing a business alongside me. Whether you're just starting your vlog or you're trying to deal how to scale massive growth, this is a seriously fire episode you can't miss.
This is a huge mashup, really explaining what I think about the bullshit that is "passive income" and how it relates to what you THINK it is. "Passive income" comes in a few forms, which I go further into in this one, expanding on what "passive income" really takes form as - this is a FIRE on to listen to today, hope u love it <3
This was a super cool little clip that not only demonstrates how I relate the importance of kindness & empathy to business- but also shows the way I write articles with my team, sitting down with TeamGaryVee's new writer, Raghav - some cool lessons in here I think you'll like. <3
Artificial intelligence (AI), artificial general intelligence (AGI), and artificial super intelligence (ASI) are obviously really hot topics right now, but I think there’s a big lack of clarity in the system... I usually hear people mention that AI is going to take our jobs or that it will destroy our economy and force us to use a Universal Basic Income (UBI) as a result, when in actuality, I think it’s going to be a tool that will allow us to become faster and focus on more important tasks. In the same way that people thought tractors would get rid of the jobs of farmers, we actually just got faster and they allowed us to achieve more.
Anyone who follows my content knows that being a salesman is a huge part of who I am, and that I massively respect anyone in the sales game - this mashup puts together a few tips and tricks that I think are great advice for anyone that is looking to step up their game, or just needs a little help or push in the right direction. <3
Look, the internet has created vast amounts of opportunity, no matter what your foundation is... Frankly, I'm of the mindset that if you have faced adversity that you're actually better off than people who haven't faced adversity because you're hungry and willing to put in the work to get yours.
Humbled that I was given the opportunity to give this talk at the Precious Dreams Foundation - let me know what your thoughts on this podcast on twitter @GaryVee ;)
This was a super super insightful interview on Complex, where my man Racks Hogan interviews me in Footaction, NYC on what clouds and dirt means to me, my shoe launches and a ton more - this was a big one, would love if you'd listen.
Hit up the full video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64xgolaVRysAnd check out Complex on: Twitter: https://twitter.com/Complex // @Complex Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/complex/ // @Complex
This throwback is a really, really big one that I'm super pumped to resurface today - I gave a fireside Q&A back in 2016 for LinkedIn, and had them ask me a ton of live questions - talking about the way I perceive myself, the reasons why some people feel pressured into entrepreneurship, or building a business when they should be focused more on being that number 17 guy at Facebook. I also go off on how and when I decide to go all in on a new platform that I think is going to blow up. This is a FIRE talk that I'd hate for you to miss <3 <3
This is a BIG new one for me, topics I previously haven't touched on a ton because I was listening, learning and watching before I weighed in. Hope you get massive value out of this one - <3
I hope this helps you learn how to grow a small business. Scaling your company and hiring your first employees can be a little tricky, but if you pay yourself as little as possibly and make hiring your top priority, it will pay itself off, you just have to understand that none of the good stuff will come fast.. you're not going to make a million dollars and chill on a yacht six months into starting your company. Have the mindset that it's going to take you the next 21 years. That's how you'll win.
This is easily one of my most fire interviews of all time - chopping it up with my man Aubrey Marcus, pushing hard into the reasons that you're not winning right now, and how to fix them. Probably the largest topic I touch in this one is the mentality behind dropping a loser friend to pick up a new one - this can push positivity, work ethic ... whatever u need it to, just listen <3
Really enjoyed this interview with Wannahaves and how we touched up on adversity. I'm sure that any of you that know me well know that I believe adversity to be the foundation of success; however, being said, I also believe that adversity comes in a bunch of different form. You can find Wannahaves here - be sure to show them some love for me ;) https://www.instagram.com/wannahaves/
This is a really important clip, expanding on why I think and act so far in the long game, rather than just focusing on short term wins. The long game is so so so much larger than the short & ends with legacy. I talk about why giving away music for free nets more exposure in the long game & how it can help you win. Great little clip here, hope u love <3
Coming from the wine & liquor industry, I thought this would be a really cool mashup to put togther, with tips from Marcus Samuelsson, Jon Taffer & more - we chop it up and talk about customer service, opening a new restaurant, marketing food products and more.
This Q&A I did at ILoveKickboxing Founder Michael Parrella's Mastermind talk was HUGE. 1.5 hours of straight FIRE, answering questions around my theses, building brands, and fitness businesses -straight fire in this one, I think a lot of you would get value from this.
Really loved being on Bulletproof Radio's podcast, with Dave Asprey breaking down the importance of Self Awareness, Gratitude & Positivity & why these three characteristics are so important in everyday life & success. Important podcast to listen to, that'll help you become a more positive person.
Definitely check out Bulletproof Radio over at https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/what-self-awareness-gratitude-actually-does-for-you/id451295014?i=1000417941775&mt=2
this is a super important clip - it's a phone call that Hasan Minhaj & I took while he was on the #askgaryvee show. We talk to a young man who's fighting the battle between what his immigrant parents what him to do, and what he actually wants to do, and the constant struggle to find balance- Hasan & I both have different, but similar input on this... Very very important.
This is a super important keynote that I did recently in Singapore, really breaking down the importance of becoming a practitioner in the craft that you're trying to succeed in - so many people put down Facebook Ads, but have never once run an ad & seen results. I also dive into the importance of thinking of yourself & your own goals, rather than just doing something to make your parents proud or happy. Really hope you get a massive amount of value out of this keynote.
Hit me up on Twitter @garyvee and give me your $.02 on this one-
There's more than one way to grow on Instagram & making it work for your business or personal brand - but there's also a number of ways that can hurt you - following & unfollowing being one. These clips from #Askgaryvee & an original film sum up my ideas and processes around what I think are the most effective ways to grow your Instagram audience, while bringing value to both you and your followers.
Really really really loved this sit down I had with Jessica Alba, in front of VaynerMedia NYC last year - I think this is a really really important talk for everyone who's waning on their dreams to listen to ... one of the most fascinating parts of this talk is when Jessica talks about how she almost didn't end up acting, but did end up going back to school. Super super good one, I hope u all enjoy <3
This series of keynotes I did in Asia this past month were all complete fire - this one in Kuala Lumpur really focused around a few key themes: the difference in entrepreneurship between when I was growing up & today's dynamic, really driving home WHY and HOW putting out content and distributing it works & why entitlement is a massive detriment, when the life you're living isn't actually predicated on what you're contributing. This was a really good one, hope u all love !!
This 20 minute rant of advice really pushes out what I'm thinking of when I talk to interns in the ad industry - I think this clip from 2013 really shows how my thinking has and hasn't changed in what interns need to be focusing on & I hope it gives all of you a little bit of help both during and after your intenrship.
Really loved giving this keynote, #GetMeGaryVee, in Rochester, Minnesota.. Got to cover a handful of things, but the thing that I have to really put emphasis on is that if you're running a business in 2018 and you're not paying close attention to everything that is going on with the internet and blockchain, you could be in deep trouble. Please, please don't let so many of these amazing opportunities fly right by you. <3
Not only are these clips the top viewed #AskGaryVee questions of all time, they're also clips that 100% embody everything that I'm about - Hope you love these <3
Really loved hanging out and chatting here - really talking about different angles & diving deep into a few topics that I don't dive into all that often. We really chopped it up about what it means to be a "real fan" vs a "fake fan" and how that relates to my brand, throwing in a Dave Matthews reference along the way - really love this interview, hope u do too <3
Catch Stationary Astronaut on Apple Podcasts & Spotify!
Even though this is a short clip, it's one that I think will really have a lot of impact on a lot of you - I met with Dustin, a new video resident on our team to talk about his passions & how he can get ahead in chasing them ... not everyone's an entrepreneur and I think that it's a really important step in self awareness to realize that ... it'll help you decide your path. This was a really important piece that I think a lot of you should hear this weekend. <3
As a lot of you know, I'm extremely excited by the music industry and massively passionate about what goes on in and around it - namely with content distribution. Distribution has been a sector that's changed MASSIVELY with the internet, allowing artists to independently release songs without needing a label to do so - here, I break it down with some help from talented artists to help you get your music out & start winning <3
This was the first of three fast paced keynotes I did while on my Asia tour a few weeks back, and I think these are all very different from the rest of the ones that I did - talking to a new audience, in a new market that I'm really focused on heavily now. I also talk really heavily on why you need to stop judging yourself based on other peoples' social media - you're only seeing what they're curating you to see.
This is a really, really important one for every one of you to hear. I sat down with Shane Nicolich, a fan who asked a very very good question at a keynote I gave that I invited to come hang out for a day at Vaynermedia. Shane has survived a traumatic brain injury, along with a host of other things, but has stayed positive throughout everything in his life. He's looking to further build his personal brand, so we sit down and charge right into his instagram, developing what I called the $1.80 strategy. Engagement is necessary in our world, so give this one a listen and start now. <3
Really really loved doing this interview on Bloomberg, diving deeper into why I think Facebook is such a good, valuable buy and my thoughts on investing in it & talking about why I think Jeff Bezos & Amazon are going to be bigger than imaginable.
This special live episode of #askgaryvee was recorded LIVE in Vaynermedia's London office, with pro footballer Daniel Williams - Daniel and I chop it up and talk about football, how he broke out into his sport, why influencers should be choosy about brand deals, and a ton more -
Check out Daniel on Instagram at @chilliams23
Loved loved loved being on Power 106 on the Cruz show, spitting fire about manifesting what you want & backing it up with the work, why entitlement and growing up with entitlement is a hinderance, the Fortnite explosion & a ton more - this was a FIRE segment <3
Check out The Cruz Show www.instagram.com/@iamcecevalencia
and Power106: @power_106
Just because you're "middle aged" doesn't mean you're down and out... Of all times, now is probably the most practical time to start that business that you've always wanted to start; the kids are probably out of the house (or close) and you have so much extra time on your hands. Please understand that you still have half of your life in front of you.
This section out of a business meeting I had with Hip Hop artist Racks really shows the value you get in return for giving away your best shit for free - pure exposure. I dive into why free is the gateway to reaching an even broader audience & why it makes up the habits of true winning entrepreneurs.
In this episode of #podsessions, NASCAR meets entrepreneurship meets wrestling - loved chopping it up with Charly, Ty and Erik and getting into culture, the debate of when kids should be introduced into technology & a complete blowout about sports, social media and more. This was a totally FIRE episode!
Hit up Charly here: http://www.instagram.com/charlycarusowwe
Hit up Erik: http://www.instagram.com/erik_jones
Hit up Ty: http://www.instagram.com/ty_dillon
This keynote was one of the major ones that really put me on the map back in 2016 - serious fire here, talking about explaining the beginning of UBER to my dad's friends, and their reactions, the reason live TV is starting to decline & taking questions from the audience, notably talking about why people watch mobile video (facebook, etc) without sound. This is a really good one to go back and listen to, comparing 2016 to 2018 <3
I know you love these fireside chats with VM interns, because they really help to provide a different context into my content & thinking & there's some serious fire in this one - really really hope you enjoy and get immense value from it.
REALLY loved this totally fire episode - It was a treat to have Kyle Busch, driver of the #18 car stop by to hang out, chat and take some calls - we talk about how he got into NASCAR & started racing, take a call from someone looking to start a podcast, and help him figure out the best strategy to launch & talk to a little boy who also just wants to race. Hope everyone loves this one, I sure did !!
Hit up Kyle! www.instagram.com/rowdybusch
This FIRE interview was a little different than my normal ones - loved sitting down with Kevin @KFCBarstool & @Feitelberg and really hashing it all out about the Knicks, Tom Brady and a ton more - this was a special interview ;)
If you're in the fitness or athletic space, listen up - this one's for you. Whether you're established & wanting to now what the next move is, or just starting out and wondering about monetization, this mashup's one I'm super pumped about. The space is only getting bigger & more competitive & this mashup helps push out there what you should be focusing on - it's all in the work - you can't do 1000 pushups without training, just like you can't build a successful brand without time & patience. :)
I haven't thrown it back to my wine days in a little while, so I wanted to give you a little activity this Sunday, following along with a guided wine tasting from Episode 42 of WineLibraryTV. Do you like content like this, mixing it up a bit from my typical motivational / business content?
really loved sitting down with Natalie to jam out about how I feel my mental well being & stress management really helps me out in my fitness journey, why it was important and necessary for me to hire a full time personal trainer & how mental perspective is what is key to pushing yourself into a successful place. Really fired up about this meeting - hope you enjoy :)
It may not seem like it, but August is one of the most important months for an entrepreneur. Everyone else is sleeping or on vacation and just simply not on their A-Game. Now's the time to prepare. Now's the time to get your 4th quarter hustle up and running. <3
I know a lot of you are going to be super fired up about this interview I recently did on Chris "Drama" Pfaff's podcast, Short Story Long - we dive really deep into the very beginnings of my career, and my long term strategy behind buying the Jets - this is a really fire interview!!
CHECK OUT MY MAN DRAMA'S PODCAST: http://applepodcasts.com/drama
@Drama on IG
SUPER excited to be bringing #podSessions back into the mix, and there couldn't have been a better crew to do it with - Erika Nardini is the CEO of Barstool Sports, former CMO of AOL & all around complete badass - Reezy Resells is a young monster hustler following the Crush It! model, blowing up the Amazon Reseller game & Alex Banayan is absolutely killing it with his book, The Third Door, in which he interviews some of the worlds top innovators and business people. Complete fire on this episode, diving into yard sales, the best way to get close to your heros & a TON more.
Check out my guests:
Alex Banayan - https://www.instagram.com/alexbanayan/ The Third Door - https://www.amazon.com/Third-Door-Uncover-Successful-Launched/dp/0804136661
This mashup contains a host of topics that I really believe in, that drive every single business I've built - especially Vaynermedia. When you're at the top of a company, you're responsible for every single thing that happens within your company, including the happiness of your employees - I hope this mashup brings you enormous value into the inner workings of how I think about running a business & how that translates down to employee happiness, and company culture. <3
You have to do what you love and find happiness in your work and life. If you're working to get rich and retire or to buy a nice watch so that you can hide your insecurities, you will lose. Happiness is the ultimate goal. If you're not happy, the rest doesn't matter. This meeting with Xianlimm is super interesting, because I talk a lot about how I transitioned from building a business, to building my brand and then combining the two, and figuring out the balance that you need in your life.
Even the cheer at the end is slow and muted, it’s very and I mean very hard to understand the concept of loving the journey over the trophy. - It’s almost impossible when you don’t have the things that you want to understand that the chase of those things if you pick the right path will end up tasting sweeter than the items you amass. - When you want 100k followers, when you chase 10k likes a post, you don’t realize how empty it can feel when you get there and more importantly you don’t even know why, they just seem like the right numbers. - My friends, please try to start the process of understanding happiness, understanding why you feel the way you do, what makes you insecure and want a fancy car or house, why when you go through your feed you feel FOMO please understand that doing things you love will lead to the things you want even when they don’t pay you what you THINK you need to get what you THINK you want.
LOVED hanging out with these young hustlers, talking culture, basketball, content & a whole lot more. The energy in this room was REAL & I broke it down about how I came up with the Airplane Project and what it stemmed from. Then we dive into perseverance vs delusion and how to figure out how to decide what to go after - self awareness here is key. This is a seriously fire interview, hope you enjoy <3
Check out these guys here! https://soundcloud.com/theroommatespodcast/
Sitting down with this LEGEND led to a MASSIVELY good show, really flushing out a lot of details that I don't talk about often about the advertising industry and the past, present and future of where it's going. We chop it up and take calls talking to publications, and privacy and I talk more in-depth about what I'd do if I were in charge of a large brand. Super fire show here - hope u love it.
Get Ken's book, Frenemies here: garyvee.com/frenemies
There's one way to be good at anything you want to do - just do it. This clip from an interview I did really elaborates on the best ways to become an expert on whatever you want, by doing. Want to be a podcaster? Do it. Want to start a vlog? Do it. Really important info here that everyone needs to hear. <3
Super excited to start bringing you guys a more efficient version of these keynotes that I've been putting out because I know not all of you can listen to the entire thing, so we're getting straight into the meat. These two keynotes, one from the Dutch Bros talk and the other from my iconic Breakfast Club interview both push so heavily two pillars that I talk about a lot - that you need to know yourself through self awareness and that you need to stay on the offense to get to what you want - FIRE stuff here guys, hope you're loving them <3
I think this is a super cool little piece of content - I sat down with my team to write and project my thoughts on Instagram's latest product, IGTV. Not only does this give my thoughts on IGTV, but I also talk about why I don't jump in and make predictions without experiencing new platforms and products. I think this also gives a really cool inside look at how I write my articles and arbitrage time to do so.
Really really motivated by the idea that entitlement can absolutely hinder your ability to succeed. If you feel you're entitled to something without actually putting the work in, you're in for a big surprise down the line when you're not in that Lambo. Self awareness is the big play here to avoiding that negative mindset. Hope you all love this clip & have a great weekend.
LOVED having Drake Bell come by to dive deep into something I talk a lot about - the massive advantage independent music artists have when distributing their music. I think this was a really different & interesting meeting because Drake's mindset and experience in the industry gives him a super interesting perspective on the industry. We talk about his come up, how he got both himself and his music on the TV show Drake & Josh and advice for pushing his career further. Really cool talk here for anyone that has roots or interest in producing music. Hope you enjoy!
This was an insanely fire episode of #AskGaryVee, with The Grill Dads, talking about their new show that's coming out Saturday July 21st; Comfort Food Tour. Loved loved loved having these guys on my the show - one of them, Ryan Fey is even a leader in Vaynermedia's LA office! We sit down and chop it up around the creation of the show, what makes it the most fire food show on TV, and then take some calls - We chat it up with callers about starting their own TV series, how you can encourage your kids to be active in creating content without pushing the barriers you set and even talk to a little girl who's on fire :). This was an all time show, and I really really hope you enjoy it!!!
Check out Comfort Food Tour, airing Saturdays at 8PM on the Food Network!
This mashup is a combination of a conversation I had with my team, around getting more creative, less lazy and figuring out new ways to use older content to benefit my audience - A lot of you probably haven't heard this content from YEARS ago, and a lot of it still applies today. I talk patience, hustle, content & community, why I'm so happy and what the "simple business vacation" is. SERIOUSLY fire content here everyone, I hope you love these throwbacks <3
This is a SUPER important interview, for a lot of reasons, I go super in depth with Paul Cutsinger about what my views of the future of voice & Alexa are, and really lay out why the space is so important. If you're as focused on the voice space as I am (you should be), this is an all-timer for you.
Curious about Alexa? Hit up their dev site: https://alexa.design/vaynermedia
I threw down some serious fire while Babin and I were in Seattle at Amazon a few weeks back, sourcing questions from Instagram to answer between meetings from the back of a car - I chopped it up on why telling your truth is the best content, and what that means, why you should start a podcast and a whole lot more. Really loving these backseat answers & I hope you do too.
When you're the CEO, every single thing that's wrong with a business or company falls on you. It's your responsibility, it's your fault that it's not working or it is working - when you're at the top, it's lonely because you can't blame anybody but yourself. This rant expands on that.
Every single young music producer that's trying to break out needs to hear this meeting where grammy nominated music producer illmind and I chop it up around the music industry & working with your heroes.
I think Snapchat is about to make a massive comeback, so I'm going all in on the platform again and throwing out some fire content. Since I'm getting back on it, I wanted to throw together this mashup so you know why you need to be on it, along with some tips to win the platform. Hope u enjoy ;)
Absolutely loved having Frank come on the show this week - Frank is the former CEO of The Home Depot and a non-executive chairman of Delta Airlines, among a host of other large achievements. We sat down and talked heavily about businesses at a macro level, as well as running a business internally - how and why 360 reviews aren't an efficient or effective method of reviews within a company. There's some really, really great segments here that I think you'll love.
Make sure you check out Crazy Good Turns, the Podcast about inspiring stories and people that Frank produces at crazygoodturns.org
This FIRE interview I did on my friend Elvis Duran's morning show here in NYC on Z100 was really an all-time interview. We chopped it up really hard, focusing heavily on why the older generation needs to stop categorizing millennials as all lazy, and advice for people in that generation. Really a fire interview that I think you'll all like.
I talk a lot about the concept of "the law of attraction" and how it relates to achieving what you want to happen in life - this little snippet talks about what that all really means and how you can relate it to your own life.
For those of you that remember, a few months ago, at the launch of Crushing It!, I held a competition/raffle that if you bought 10 copies of Crushing It!, you had the chance to have breakfast with me at VaynerMedia in New York City - this is that meeting ;) I think that the vast majority of the emphasis in this video is placed on perspective, complaining, dwelling, etc... If you've been watching my content for a while and you still are in a place where you dwell on things that happened in the past or you don't truly understand how good we have it, I'm really hoping that this is the one that gets through to you..
This mashup helps embody a ton of my beliefs and pillars of content into one powerful message that'll get you to crush this entire week.
Was awesome to have Labrinth come through and play and hang at the VaynerX lounge in Cannes, France two weeks ago. Loved sitting down with him for this little impromptu interview, chatting about number one hits and creative freedom, he also does a live performance at the end ;)
Had a great time meeting with this duo that started the channel Dose of Society, where they travel to different cities to interview locals about their opinions on local topics. I review their content and give a few recommendations on what I think can help them grow in the long term, by formatting their style and implementing a few tactics.
LOVED sitting down to chat with Ryan & his girlfriend, two prank masters to talk about their build up, and strategies for them to utilize and their audience for a long term play. This was a really important meeting that a lot of you should hear - they're being patient and their reasoning will really apply to you. Great great stuff. Hope u enjoy <3
This throwback is massively massively valuable for any music artist or creator that hasn't heard it - we talk about how Russ really put the work in during his come up (& still does), releasing music for completely free and how he thinks about patience & it's value. This is an ALL TIME episode you shouldn't miss. ;)
Something that I touch on occasionally, but don't always go super into detail about are my thoughts around parenting are, so I wanted to release this little mashup that has a multitude of content around that thought.
This was a super cool interview that focused massively more on the Vaynermedia & VaynerX side of my life, expanding on why and how I built our new media property, One37PM - I also dive super deep into the future of voice in advertising, and why Alexa, Google Home & similar platforms are the next thing to really look out for.
With this holiday week ahead, I wanted to bring you guys some serious fire. Losing is of the most important parts of being an entrepreneur, because no matter what, at some point you're going to take an L and be faced with a decision of what to do. Either you use it to push yourself harder or you wallow in sorrow. This mashup brings some heat on exactly what you should do.
I think everyone should listen to this due to the advice for general social media it gives, but ESPECIALLY creatives young and old in advertising because we dive deep into the old, new and changing landscapes of the advertising world. We talk about working with more traditional superiors, why you need to be thinking in tweets instead of TV spots and a ton more - this was an all time one.
Apologies that some of the questions were cut out - this was in a large hall and we weren't able to capture every question.
The only voice you need to hear is your own. Everything comes down to your mindset. If you're not optimistic and motivated, you need to find a new circle of friends and start becoming very in tune with yourself. Hope you really dig into this one this weekend and get ready to put complete FIRE into the upcoming week.
Really really loved getting down with this Q&A at VM London a few weeks back, jumping into my thoughts around different social platforms, the GDRP compliance, and how technology is shaping the way that we live, work and breathe. Really solid fireside chat and Q&A here, hope you really enjoy <3
Besides being the most downloaded episode of all time, this was a super super cool collab, and I was really pumped to have my man Tony Robbins on the show. We chop it up big time around personal branding, gratitude, leverage and giving back. Total FIRE on this one.
I see too many companies putting effort into social solely for the purpose of doing social. If companies put more of an emphasis on brand and sales, I think that there would be a positive and dramatic shift in how that company thinks about and executes on social.
Loved being on my buddy Dr. Oz's podcast, The Dr. Oz Podcast to sit down and really dig into a few topics that I don't touch on a ton, including health as well as a few that I get deep into here, like supply and demand of talent, the how and why startups are excelling on social and reinforcing why voice is the next big thing. Great great interview here :)
Check out his podcast here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-dr-oz-podcast/id1387919501?mt=2
and hit him up on Twitter @droz & Instagram @dr_oz
Loved loved loved meeting with this young up and coming artist to sit down and discuss the ways she can pop even bigger into the community. We chat music distribution, summer hits and the mindset while creating music. Great stuff here, I know you'll all love it.
This was a really neat interview I did for a Polish publication while I was in London, chatting about my new book and diving massively into what I see as Legacy and what legacy is what drives me so so far. We also get into the difference between the US and a lot of other countries, specifically the influence that family has over your career and lifestyle. Really cool points in this interview I think you'll find interesting.
I think this meeting is super interesting because it's different than my normal business meetings - it really focuses in on an international brand that's looking to launch a new part of their business and the ways they should be thinking about this big change. Great stuff here!
This was a SUPER cool interview that I really enjoyed with Travis Mills on Apple's Beats1 Radio - we really talk about what goes on behind the scenes in my meetings with rappers, and the mutual value that goes both ways. We chat how I go from Madison Ave boardrooms to a studio in the hood, and how that transition come so natural to me, it's all about value and empathy.

If you're new to my podcast, or my content in general, this is one piece that you 100 percent should not miss. It's one of my top performing pieces of content and an all time keynote that really resonates to this day. This one was interesting because I was speaking to an entrepreneurship class and I just don't think you can learn to be an entrepreneur which makes for an interesting dynamic ;) To be successful you need to be adapting but stay loyal to your strengths. If you’re a true entrepreneur you understand the importance of taking your idea and running with it — there's no time to waste. You never know what tomorrow will bring and timing is massively important. These lessons don’t stop, no matter what stage of your career you're in. Macro-patience vs. Micro-speed is everything. Don't dwell on your mistakes and just keep moving forward. Give this one a listen because you do not want to miss it.
The internet cut out all of the middlemen, which opens up the door to anybody and everybody that takes a shot.. In today's world where anybody can create content and put it on social with very little to no friction, you have to make the best content and be the best at distributing it...
Really enjoyed this interview with iHeartRadio, you can find them here: https://www.youtube.com/user/iheartradio
This panel with a group of Finnish YouTubers, including Jarno Laasala [The Dudesons] was super cool, and we touched on a handful of topics that I don't talk about a ton, like how Logan Paul and Grape Story are linked, brand safety with influencers and the balance of selling out as an influencer that's putting on a brand. Awesome chat around tips for influencers here <3
The 3rd Keynote in the NAC series, this was one for the books - I go in on people that talk about being an "expert" in something, just putting it in their bio instead of putting in the work to show that they're excelling in their field. This was a really really all-time keynote, I think you'll love it <3
This throwback is PERFECT for you to listen to this Sunday morning, there's a really simple way to make money - do shit. In this one, my brother in law Justin & spend the day going to garage sales to find stuff to flip - you should give it a try today :)
This clip from when I was in Helsinki is a really strong reminder of how I built my personal brand team - Team GaryVee and a great model to follow if you've hit the point in your personal brand development where you can bring some people on to exponentially grow the brand. I talk to an entrepreneur in Finland about the core players that I see as required on a team - and the individual content they create, as well as scaling that team.
The massive, overarching theme of this keynote is practicality - useful knowledge to drive your goal. Once you've figured out what you want, and what you're trying to achieve , you need to put in the work and reverse engineer to match that goal. Some really great Q&A here too, chatting about OTT's and the way the landscape is changing.
This keynote was super super cool and I think it's a great one to look back at, when Instagram and Snapchat were just starting to boom & social taking hold of our lives. I give some advice I think will help a lot of you - talking about how long you should be waiting until you see a return on your business or startup. Great stuff in this keynote, it'd mean the world to me if you listened <3
Interning and working for cheap or free can be one of the most powerful tools & experiences you can have as a young entrepreneur & I always say that you should get close to those that you admire and strive to be. Here's a few more tips for interns that I think are super valuable to winning the long game.
Really happy I got to do this chat with my man Jordan Palmer, former Redskins QB, chatting social tactics - really focusing in on what you're trying to do on a platform, what your business goal is - sell? grow? Knowing this answer will help you define your social strategy. I also double down on why being the number 13 person at Facebook instead of the number one is so valuable & really put into perspective why enjoying what you do is such a game changer.
This keynote from Ft. Lauderdale a few weeks back starts with me bringing the audience way back to when I started building Wine Library, doing email marketing & google adwords and moving into why losing and learning to love & accept losing really helps in the long term- it helps put into perspective their goals & I talk about passing on Uber twice relating to this. Great conference here & I hope u enjoy <3
These 2 clips from my recent trip to Helsinki push home the complete fact that building businesses from the ground up take time - Deciding whether your business is ready to expand into new geographic areas is a big undertaking and between these two clips, a common theme emerges which is to make sure you're not jumping the gun on what you're trying to do.
Great clips & advice here, hope u all enjoy <3
Hey guys I hope you really enjoy this mashup of content focused around the what, how, when and why to personalize your business or personal brand. You'll learn what you need to do to start, when to start and a whole lot more. Hope you love it, featuring Cha Tha God, Jason Calacanis, Kai Greene, Lauryn Evarts, Sara Dietschy, and Mason Plumlee.
Really happy that I got to sit down with Taylor, that many of you know from "The Ultimate Advice For Every 20 Year Old", which was a snippet from an episode of #AskGaryVee that went viral. I really think that this video provides value that will be massively impactful for 98% of the 22 year olds to 30 year olds listening...
This is easily one of my most ALL TIME interviews - being on my man Tom Bilyeu's show, Impact Theory. A lot of themes come up in this interview, including whether we've become soft as a culture, how I differentiate between fads and actual businesses and applying empathy to everyday life- understanding others' reactions and thoughts to play off your own. A SERIOUSLY all time interview here.
Check out Impact Theory right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lITalyctN4
Really enjoyed doing this keynote with my friend Jan a week ago in Helsinki. This really was an all-time piece of content, where I focused very heavily on the futures of audio in a B2C world & how Amazon and other major players have such an opportunity to push hard in the space. We also take a bunch of startup focused Q&A and talk podcast audience values. Great stuff here!
Super super super hyped about this interview I did a few weeks back, chatting heavy starting with what my "typical day" looks like & really dialing in on the type of work that I do, mixing people & human interaction with emails. A lot of you are always asking what my thoughts are on blockchain technology and certain cryptocurrencies, what I think about the future of voice, etc... I think that this interview with Innovation & Tech Today will answer a lot of your questions and concerns in terms of how I see them. Most of you probably know that I don't like to talk about things that I don't really understand or know enough about, so if I don't go as in-depth as you were hoping for, it's because I'd rather talk about what I know and be authentic than make stuff up...
LOVED doing this live show with Jarno Laasala from the Dudesons & Arctic15, answering questions from local entrepreneurs and creators in Finland.
Hit up Jarno: @jarnodudeson
Obviously this was a loaded question/situation, but I really want to put emphasis on the fact that being 28 years old means that you still have 60 more years of execution. So many people think that 28 is a good time to start playing it safe by buying a house, getting married, and settling down, when in actuality, you have so much time! Don't look at other people to get bearings on where you are in your life. Everyone has their own clock.
I think this mashup is really important because it answers a lot of questions that entrepreneurs who are brand new to the game have - and reinforces the beliefs of the older, more hardened folks. Some topics featured here are company name, brand recognition, practicality and funding. Great content that I know you'll get some value from :)
Really enjoyed getting to sit down and jam with Chris Brickley who is an influencer and NBA trainer. If you guys were to takeaway one thing from this meeting, I'd hope that it's if you always speak your truth and never lie, everything can work out perfectly. Do what is true to you, not what you think will make you the most money in the short-term...
Some of you may recognize this as the keynote in a barn, but it's much more than that - it's one of my favorite keynotes of all time and there's so much value here. I chop it up heavy around self awareness, the vaynermedia machine, and really focusing and tripling down on your strengths to succeed. Great stuff here - hope u love it <3
My 5 rules & pillars of success to winning as a human and entrepreneur ;)
Do you like these quick takes, or prefer longer form content? Hit me up & let me know !!
You may not have been able to make it to voicecon, but I'm really really glad we can share this keynote setting up this event, the area of voice and audio and take some Q&A from the audience around the types of platforms, the values of audio and the massive change that we're about to go through. This was a big one guys !!
This is one of my favorite fireside chats in a while because the depth of the discussion around the good vs bad of social media , really got me fired up at Stanford Graduate School of Business. <3
Really enjoyed getting to have this fireside chat with my good friend Rachel Tipograph, founder of MikMak because I think that it's a super important conversation that needs to be had regarding the current state of entrepreneurship and how gender plays a role in it.
Serious fire here coming from the #AskGaryVee show - these clips are from episodes with Hasan Minhaj, Jon Taffer, T-Paid, Russ & Tim Ferriss and are a combination of the most entertaining & the most influential call-in's with celeb guests on the show - definitely worth a listen ;)
This is interview with EvolvDaily is a unique one. I was on a completely different high of positivity, explaining why my fuel is gratitude. Expanding on why I don’t burn out and become overwhelmed with anything. I add another perspective to help you guys understand why I love losing on the micro level and elaborate on the only thing that will ever stop me from keep going. I hope you enjoy…
I really love this interview back from 2012, because it sets up so much of what's fallen into place today around my thoughts, beliefs and ideals - In this interview I start to talk about the content game, why community management, and engagement are SO important on social media - and give a few examples into people and ideals that I think were massive examples for marketing in this day and age, knowing that storytelling helps lead a customer to a purchase.
Hope you all enjoy this little throwback ;)
Loved loved sitting down and chatting with Amanda Bucci about a number of topics, including the unfortunate trend of unhappiness in vanity metrics within the fitness world, "being" rather than doing things, and what to do when you want to change your professional focus. Some great points made in this talk that I think a lot of you that are personal-branding focused could take to heart.
Hit up Amanda right here: https://www.instagram.com/amandabucci/
Absolutely loved having my good friend Michael Ventura on the shoooooow today - Michael is the founder of Sub Rosa, a strategy & design shop that does some amazing work. We really chopped it up about one of my favorite beliefs & mindsets - empathy, in honor of his new book, Applied Empathy and took some calls to frame up what it means to be an empathic person - relating it to leadership, personality traits and more. This was a great show that we crossed a TON of great topics on - hope you enjoy !!
Go buy Michael's book here: https://www.appliedempathy.com/

This was a really neat interview that I did for Haute Living, talking about how I run my day, Vaynermedia's move into Hudson Yards & Long Island City, how the "motivational speaker" part of my persona became a prominent part of my public appearance, and what the definition of a hustler & hard worker is. Great interview here that brings forward a number of things I don't talk a ton about.
Really enjoying doing these Q&A's in the little downtime I have while traveling, and I'm really happy with the questions that came in with this one. I talk about why I'm so fond about the idea behind "you've signed up for it, so you gotta eat it", door to door sales & more.
A lot of you that consume my content know that I firmly that employees are first in your company, and that you work for them - This mashup includes some tips and viewpoints that'll hopefully help you help your employees to stay motived, happy and hard working ;)
This keynote I did recently in Nashville at PRSM2018 focusing on retail, restaurants and facilities I think made a massive impact on the audience that was there. I talked about watching social media take its turn from being just "a thing that college kids used" and turning into something so big it had to be regulated by the government, and gave some tactical tips on why & how to produce content within these industries, and close it out with a fire Q&A session.
This is an ALL TIME keynote that got me really fired up, really going off on why you need to adjust to the market- you're only as good as your last at-bat, it doesn't matter what happened 8, 9 , 10 years ago. I also go on to get MASSIVELY fired up around when Facebook bought Instagram, and why I still stand by my statement that it was a super cheap buy. If there's one keynote this month you shouldn't miss- it's this ;)
LOVED sitting down with legendary Chinese influencer & all around positive person Raz Gal-Or while he was in town to chat KOL's, the importance of family & more.
Loved having this guy stop by the office last month to chop it up around positivity, surrounding yourself with good people and his new album Activated.
This one's for all the kids that are about to graduate from college...
Sometimes there's not enough time in a day to film a dailyvee, between meetings and confidential things that can't be shown, so we came up with the smart idea to source questions from Babin's instagram to do a live Q&A in the car while traveling in Boston. We talk about time distribution, how I balance between personal brand & running a business, and a bunch more. Great questions here - hope u all like this one.
So many of you are struggling with being accepted and overvaluing other people's POV... If one person declines you, go to the market. Don't dwell on the fact that one person rejected you or your ideas. This entire Dailyvee reflects advice for you young people struggling with this point in your life.
If you're into wine & business, you really don't want to miss this episode of AskGaryVee where I sit down with my friend Clay Shannon of Shannon Ridge Wines and chop it up around the business behind selling, producing and everything around wines. I really think him and I have great chemistry, which is why I truly believe this was an all-time episode - we cover more than just wine, focusing heavily on small businesses trying to make a come up, and strategies for those businesses.
Check out Shannon Ridge Wines here: https://www.shannonridge.com/
and hit them up on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/shannonridgewines/
This completely all-time keynote is one that really put me up.
This interview is really important to me, because I talk about a few things I don't touch on very often, diving deeply into parenting and the culture around raising kids - why there's a lot of failure because of parents judging other parents, without focusing more on having their children succeed. I also talk a lot about why I truly believe my mom is a reason that I forged my success so heavily. Great stuff here, I really hope you enjoy.

Really enjoyed having this conversation with Big Baby because I think that it gives a lot of you guys extra context on how you need to be authentic on social media in order to become more relatable and interesting to your audience. Telling your audience small things about you like what your favorite candy is will result in you getting a more involved/engaged audience. Also, pay attention to what I said about how to hack attention on Twitch... it's important ;)
I know a lot of you have been asking for more under-the-hood interaction with my team, so this piece of content is easily the cream of the crop - I had a few members of teamgaryvee sit down and talk with me at Core Club NYC to review our strategy on a multitude of fronts - and it's all out there, I know you'll get some value out of this.
Really enjoyed getting to sit down with my man Rob Markman to discuss journalism in the hip hop industry and the industry as a whole... I think this video opens up a side to me that many of you haven't seen with respect to whether or not you should go all in on your passions or play it safe.
This compilation really hits home for me - Anxiety, fear of losing and a lack of self awareness are the key things that hold you back in life and in business. Once you double down on what you're good at, choose to think positively and realize that nobody gives a fuck about your losses, you'll start to win.
As a lot of you know, I'm extremely passionate about small businesses - from helping grow my dad's wine & liquor store, to launching Vaynermedia as a small business I've lived and breathed this world, which is why I decided to jump in even further to #SmallBusinessWeek and give you some tips to help grow / start / ideate your business regardless of what stage you're in ;)
Absolutely loved being on this show last year. Not only is Pat McAfee an extremely successful and retired, All-Pro NFL player, but he's found a way to hack culture and build a name for himself outside of his football career. On this one we cover all things social, building the foundation of a brand, and what it takes to get things to the next level when you're in the content game. This one was an absolute blast. Hope you guys enjoy and make sure to into Pat's show !! http://www.podcastone.com/the-pat-mcafee-show
loooved loved loved this Q&A fireside chat I did with build.org and a group of students, and I was thrilled to be honored by this incredible organization. We jump right into some great questions, like what my process is if things don't go my way - how I deal with that, whether I ever "bet it all" on one thing, the reason I'm such a good public speaker, and why i consider emotional intelligence skills like gratitude, empathy and kindness so so important. Great questions here - I know a lot of u will get some massive value from this one.
If you're in a position where you can make a serious investment into your personal brand, you should be putting as much content out as possible and investing in a team that will help you get to where you need to be. Content is the currency of the internet. Loved talking to Brian Mazza, founder of The Ainsworth restaurants about blowing up a personal brand, by producing content at scale.
Check out Brian here: https://www.instagram.com/brianmazza/
Really psyched to be able to team up with Vaynermedia client Chase bank to put on this special episode of #AskGaryVee, where we had the owners of 3 small businesses around the New York area come into the office and ask Brent Reinhard, Marketing and Product Executive, Chase Business Banking and myself questions to take their business to the next level. Hope u enjoy! <3
Loved getting to sit down with YG to discuss what he has going on with all of his new projects - 4hunnid and Stay Dangerous. We dive deep into people giving value versus people who take take take and aren't able to give back, essentially creating only short-term growth.
If you're watching my content, you know that I give away my best advice for completely free. Nothing. No ebook, no sales pitch, it's right there on the internet, and here's why I 100% believe in what I'm doing with it.
Did a quick "Ask Me Anything" on LinkedIn... if you feel like you missed out, make sure that you follow me so that you can be a part of one in the future ;) https://www.linkedin.com/in/garyvaynerchuk
Seriously loved this AMA, giving back to my LinkedIN Community. Great questions, ranging from the weapon I'd fight zombies with, to how easily I'm able to sleep at night, and a ton in between. Hope u enjoy :)
We're throwing it WAY back. For some of my new fans, you may have never hear this first episode of one of my most iconic shows, and I think it's super interesting to see how it's changed since then. we get into some nitty gritty about long-term business goals, Facebook dark-posts, and even non-profits. This is the beginning of a new era, my friends. Get ready!
Really enjoyed getting to sit down with Set Free and have a meeting to talk about their new collectable toy coming out in April as well as my past with garage sailing. Let me know if you guys liked this meeting and if you did, what about it did you like?
Loved loved loved chatting with Ben Bowman, AKA professor Broman, diving deep into the Twitch scene which is absolutely blowing up. We chopped it up, talking about Twitch streaming, why eSports is booming to the point where kids are getting full ride college scholarships to play for schools, and of course the importance of Drake popping into Ninja's stream.
Check out Broman's Twitch channel: https://www.twitch.tv/professorbroman
and get ready for mine!
Loved sitting down to chat again with 11FS, talking about having personal brand, while also building a $150 million dollar advertising agency, Vaynermedia. The interview was light hearted as well, chatting shoe game, keynote speaking and growing up in the 80's.
This is for sure an all-time interview, and I'd love if you'd listen <3
This is a simple question. Why are you looking back and focusing in on what could have been - what didn't happen, instead of laser focusing on what's right in front of you, what's coming next, what your next stride is? You have no choice in what happened yesterday- only what happens today, tomrrow, the next day.
I think that this meeting with Racks Hogan provides some really valuable insight regarding attention and monetization online. We jump into it to chat strategies of buying the Jets, and why it's so important to me that I really push forward the brand of kindness and empathy because of how it'll benefit me in the long run.
Check out my man Racks here:
This deep meeting I had with gym owner, fitness entrepreneur & influencer Jason Khalipa really pushes forward a lot of elements that I touch on - and Jason was absolutely someone I can relate to. We chat about the outside stigmas of a different work-life balance, the fast come-up's we both have, the backgrounds we come from and how they all relate. We talk heavy about growth strategies, and the big reasonings behind putting out content at scale.
Check out Jason here: https://www.instagram.com/jasonkhalipa/
This completely fire keynote I spoke at back in 2012 helped me demonstrate how social media & marketing are developing in today's world, and it's really cool to see how businesses have followed along, having to keep up with things that I mentioned here to stay relevant. Just like back then, I'm still MASSIVELY paying attention to what's going on. For example, I talk about the fact that people driving aren't looking at the road, much less at billboards, hinting towards the boom of audio.
What was your favorite part? Tweet me @garyvee and let me know.
It was great being on David Hill's podcast, the Path To Mastery, chopping it up about opinions on the futures of real estate and where the industry is headed, the essence of my newest book, Crushing It! and how every single industry is becoming affected by technology - how Uber and Amazon are in my opinion, just a preview of what's to come.
Check out David's podcast here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/one-more-sale-podcast-real/id1081069895
Loved chatting it up with this young up and coming artist, Sylvan LaCue. We sat down and chopped it up hard about the importance of community, branding, and engagement with your fans. Some really good points here I think you'll all love.
Check out Sylvan here: https://www.instagram.com/sylvanlacue
Hope you're all doing amazing this Monday - these three classics are a combo that I think will get you fired up for this week, and pushing through whatever you're working on. Do you like these motivational mondays? By the way, do you like that new one at the end?
Hit me up and let me know <3
Super thankful to everyone that supported the launch of my book, Crushing It!; especially to the ones that I was able to sit down and have brunch with given their extremely generous support. This chat with the 8 winners of my B&N Crushing It brunch contest was great - 2 hours of straight fire talking about self awareness, why you should utilize college to find your homies, and some key aspects kid entrepreneurs need to pay attention to, to be successful.
Here's a little something different for this Saturday, and if you're sitting down enjoying some wine you're going to love this. Here, I'm tasting the wines from April's wine of the month club diving back into my original roots.
Check out my wine of the month club here!!: https://winelibrary.com/clubs/garyvee-s-monthly-wine-club
Some of the wines I featured this month:
This was a fire crew to have on podSessions this week. Aubrey Marcus, founder of Onnit, pro surfer Anastasia Ashley and Lacrosse player Rob Pannell joined me to sit down and talk culture, sports, social media, the culture around losing and a whole lot more. We dive into Aubrey's new book, the obstacles Rob faced on his way to becoming a pro lacrosse player, and Anastasia's surfing career stretching back to age 5. Hope you're all enjoying #podSessions!
Check out the guests here:
Guys, this keynote is THE piece of viral content that changed my career, as the internet was becoming what it's become so far today. Every thing your do right now, your great, great, great grandchildren will be able to watch, and that's something to keep in mind constantly. I break down personal brand equity, and the necessity of not ignoring platforms to boost your influence. This is the one guys. An all-time talk. Hope you love it <3
Although the audio on this episode is a little blown out, there's some really, REALLY important information here for young entrepreneurs that you should really dig into, and I show my own version of this advice for myself talking to my trainer Jordan.
Really enjoyed my meeting with Yung Bans where he told me that kids were getting suspended from school for playing his songs over the school intercom! Super hyped to see that he's already working on hacking attention and culture to set up a platform for himself to distribute his music.
Check out Yung Bans on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/yungbans
It's nothing but a truth that once you start hanging out around people that are positive, confident and yearning for success that it'll affect you by association, just like if you're hanging out around people that complain all the time, you'll start falling into that hole. This mashup is about auditing your life, your circle and your relationships with people close to you to decide how adjusting those relationships can influence your life. Hope this one hits home for you <3
These three original shorts my team put together put forward two pillars that I talk about a lot, and love to expand on. When you're just starting out, especially when you're young, tasting a lot of things and trying different careers, foods, lifestyles, everything is key to bringing out what you're going to excel at and shape into. I don't understand how you can complain while being a human on earth. So many of you just lack perspective. You've already won. You won the universe's lottery and managed to get lucky enough to live the life that you have right now. One life, act like it.
Check out the original films here:
Loved meeting with Beau, a top notch dancer, actor and all around good dude. We sat down and chopped it up heavy around content -why you should repost, and how it benefits both you and the person you're posting for, why Will Smith is winning the content game right now and a bunch more. All in all, a great meeting I know you'll enjoy <3
Awesome to have Jake Paul stop by my office and talk about where he's planning on taking Team 10, how he may use Twitch in the future, and what he can be doing to be tunnel visioned on growing his audience.
Hope you enjoy this throwback to an interview on CNN back in 2009. It's really fun to go back and compare my thoughts and ideas back then and see how accurate they are today, as you can tell this social media thing really panned out ;)
Waiting until you're 25 to assess your life and try to figure yourself out is never a bad strategy. In some cases, many of you may have seen my "close your eyes until you're 29" rant, which essentially has the same underlying topic as this. Trust the process, put your head down and go for it. <3
Great to meet up with latin music star Nicky Jam to chop it up around staying true to your roots, building deals with brands - who and why you should, and diving into his background, his move to Colombia, his past struggles and more. This was a great chat - hope you enjoy <3
Hit up Nicky Jam on IG right here: https://www.instagram.com/nickyjampr/
The few days that I had to jam in Australia gave me the opportunity to give some of the most powerful keynotes - 3 in two days - I've given. This keynote was focused around attention, and started off really pulling apart the reasons we focus on branding, and the importance of it. We then transition into talking about the importance of social media & smartphones in today's marketing world. Really important points in this one - hope you love it <3 Hit me up on Twitter and let me know your thoughts.
& check out voicecon here: http://voicecon.co
I'm making this challenge for one person in the hopes that it will help them look at things differently and seek out positivity instead of negativity... <3
This is a topic I don't always talk a whole lot about, but when I do, there's a consistent theme to it. I've never had one, but that doesn't mean I don't encourage you to seek one out. Everyone has a different take on whether they can stay inside their own head or need guidance from others.
Like last year's Haste & Hustle event, I was completely fired up for this talk in Toronto. I dove into my beliefs on why some young entrepreneurs are in over their head before they even start, not realizing how lonely it can be - there's nobody you else you can blame above you, no boss, no teacher, no parents... I also touch on the things you need to do if you're building a business, hint, get familiar with the marketing tools of today. Total fire here, you're going to love this one ;)
Have you checked out Voicecon yet? http://voicecon.co/
Super cool to get the opportunity to sit down with my man Cole Bennett and talk about his music promotion business, Lyrical Lemonade. I think that a lot of you can get some value out of this conversation with respect to how Cole and his team plan on making a transition within the brand into the beverage industry...
LOVED this panel I got to speak on with my good friend Bonin Bough and Michael Loeb. We speak on business operations and growth, ideas around parenting, and why I don't let anyone else tell me how to parent my kids, and hone in on the issues with the entrepreneurship boom today - there's lots of companies, but not a lot of them are making money. LOTS of good chat here, hope you love it <3
I absolutely loved getting to spend time in London and meet with a ton of my fans at the Crushing It! x K-Swiss Pop Up shop. I really hope that you guys can find some value in this episode, especially in the last conversation I had when leaving the Pop Up.
Super happy that I got to surprise a fan from Twitter! Calling fans in general is always a really good way to keep your community engaged and in-tune with whatever it is that you're doing. One of the main points that I really want to hit on again from this episode was the idea of working for free to build a reputation and credibility... If you don't have a degree or the experience that other people do have, you should be working for free for 5-10 clients and crush it for them so that you can build up a strong reputation moving forward.
Straight fire in this keynote I gave in Brisbane, Australia a few months ago - I really hone in on those who are squandering getting their business really up and going with social media, and focus on the importance of really focusing on what you're good at within that realm - if you're not great on camera, maybe you're great on audio. But the Q&A section is where the real fire comes out, there's a number of questions from the audience that involve things that I don't usually touch on. Hope u enjoy ;)
If you're unhappy, there's no excuses for sitting around and complaining that the world's not fair to you, or that you had a shitty upbringing or any other "excuses" that are preventing you from doing your thing. I'm empathetic to those issues from your past, but right now is the time to drop those and leave them where they were, and focus on what's in front of you. <3
Loved chopping it up with Reece Parkinson on BBC Radio 1Xtra last week diving deep into my thoughts around Will Smith's newly founded presence basketball and football/soccer and why I want to dominate that industry and Snapchat's new update and redesign. Really really really great content here - I focus real heavily on my happiness and why and how I don't let others' opinions about myself affect my own happiness and well being. <3

MASSIVE love to my friend and business mogul Danny Meyer, CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group which founded and runs many famous restaurants around New York and the country like Blue Smoke, Gramercy Tavern and Shake Shack. We take some calls from #firstinline and answer questions on hospitality, entrepreneurship, restaurant ownership and more. Total fire in this show.
Hit up Danny here:
This keynote focused around an audience of contractors was completely on fire when it came to the Q&A section. It kicks off with a massive focus on the fact that the internet and social media aren't ruining your life, they're not ruining our world- they're exposing who we really are. I talk about the way I identify upcoming trends & nuances in the world, not necessarily always by trial and error. Some great topics & tactics in this keynote, hope you enjoy <3
COMPLETE FIRE here on The Brink of Midnight Podcast. Great chatting about how my experiences being a D and F student with negative reinforcement in school shaped my entrepreneurial vision today - and why that was a huge driver in my life, and I tell a story about how overpaying for a baseball card table at age 13 was a major transformative moment in my life. There's a TON here that I think a lot haven't heard- would love if you listened <3
And head over to John Brenkus' page here to check out more of this podcast: https://brinkofmidnight.com/
Complete fire on this episodes of the #podSessions. I had my man Gabe Anderson of VaynerBeta, Ultra athlete and author Rich Roll and Instagram hit / pro actress Arabella S Ruby on the show this week to chop it up about business, culture, social media, and a TON more. Great, great stuff on this show.

Listen up - this is a MASSIVELY important topic that I touch on often. You have time. You're young. What the fuck are you in such a rush for? I see so many young people that are either just out of high school, in college, or just out of college that are spending so much time and energy evaluating their lives and seeing where they stand in comparison to the people around them; stop judging yourselves! Close your eyes until you're 29 and stop dwelling on the past. Be patient and be self-aware, but don't stress if you haven't "made it" while you're still in your 20s... You have so much time.
Hit me up on Twitter and let me know your thoughts.
As many of you probably saw, there was a huge shift and growth in Twitch's culture this week, and my predictions and thoughts are coming true that I've been saying for years ;)
The internet changed everything... There are no more middlemen and you don't have to get the permission from some old white dude to do whatever it is that you need to do. Instead of coming up with dumb excuses as to why you can't.. look at all the reasons why you can. Hope u all enjoy this fireside chat I did at Baron Davis' Allstar weekend in LA. <3
This was a firey episode of #AskGaryVee with TV star, entrepreneur and all around badass Bethenny Frankel - Besides diving down into Bethenny's history and coming up story, we chat building the fastest growing alcohol brand, salad dressings, polo players and a TON more. Lots and lots and lots of laughs here :)
Hit up Bethenny and say hi: https://www.instagram.com/bethennyfrankel/
Loved loved loved being a guest on Dave Meltzer's podcast, The Playbook. We get straight into it, talking about my "inner workings" and more than just what I put out. I go into what I mean when I talk about how I have no expectations from others, so nobody can every let me down, and really expand on why I care more about my legacy than what I'm thought of this second - comparing to Christopher Columbus. This was an all-time interview, that I'd love if you took a listen to <3

Totally fired up about being a guest on Tom's show at Agent2021 recent - we chopped it up talking about much more than just real estate, diving into what it's like touching on big, big brands that are pushing to stay relevant in today's social world - and how those brands are doing it. Another big topic we touch on is figuring out what kind of content creation and distribution you're good at - you may hate being on video but be an excellent podcaster, which is why you should be going all - in on your strengths. Some really, really good stuff here that I think you'd love <3
Check out the full video on Tom's channel right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1iMfzuE6ZI
Straight fire out of this interview from my friends over at BiggerPockets, talking about emotion in losing and how that's changed for me over the years (and how it fires me up to push harder), why I recommend buying filters & frames geotargeted towards college campuses for hiring interns & employees and finding deals through social media. Great great interview here - hope u enjoy !!

This is an important topic that I don't think many people realize when they're unhappy at a job, especially right as you're stepped into a new role. If you're unhappy, don't just stay because of how you think it looks on paper. There's no sense in pushing through misery just to get another line in your resume - do what makes you happy.
If you don't love what you're doing, change it. It's not all about the money & fame - but if you're spending every single day unhappy because you hate your job, then you need to start turning that around.

I gave this advice to one great kid on growing his personal brand and social media influence .. I just wanted most of you to hear it too...
This interview originally appeared on Cheddar's "The Point" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ey5nhBUNgko&=
I think you're all going to find the format of this interview that I did at Cheddar extremely interesting. Arianna Huffington and I chat with Cheddar founder Jon Steinberg on topics like work life balance, burnout, disconnecting from social media & technology and dive into how I was able to be held accountable for my fitness. Really interesting points of view here- hope u enjoy !!
Complete fire coming out of this keynote at Tampa Startup Week. I dive deep into the upcoming trend of entrepreneurship, and how my ambition with my message isn't necessarily to encourage every single person to go out there and start a business, but to go out there and do what you want to do. If you want to be a number 13 at a company you admire, it doesn't mean you need to build a company and be it's number 1 first, but if that's your ambition then that's great. Some serious Q&A in this one too - make sure you check it out. <3
Loved chopping it up with my man Premium Pete, about growing up in New York City, the massive change in parenting and how where you grow up influences who you are. We dive deep into how and why I wanted to be cool with so many people throughout school by kindness, driven by the desire to sell and also chat about balancing work & private live. This was an all-time interview, and I'd love if you'd check it out.
Hit up Premium Pete here:
Check out his podcast here: https://soundcloud.com/thepremiumpeteshow

Fiiiiiiire podcast incoming - chopping it up with these guys brought out some really important points that need to be brought out. The standards of school, parenting, success and business are changing and if you want to succeed, you've gotta get on board to realize what's going on. As everyone wants to become an entrepreneur, it's important to realize that not everybody's fit to be one - maybe you'd be great as a number 13, instead of a number 1 or 2. SO so so many good topics here- you've gotta check it out <3

This is EXACTLY how you can make money for free! This video will literally change your life. The only thing that stops people from winning is education and the work ethic. I will no longer pander to the "I don't have money" excuse that so many of you use. It's over. Here's why! <3
This compilation comes from the heart - many of your know my thoughts on the younger generation, and that my beliefs lie with the idea that technology isn't ruining our kids, it's enabling them to become who they are. This advice is aimed heavily at the millennials, the future business leaders of tomorrow, and I hope it can inspire a few of you to get fired up this Saturday.

Super happy that I got to sit down with Ralo and have a quick meeting on coming up in the rap game and creating opportunity for yourself. Was great expanding with him on why I put out my best content for free, at such a large scale - because I know that 90 percent of you aren't going to do anything about it. ;)
If you're really trying to figure out how to go all in on your passion, this call-in #AskGaryVee is one you really, really can't miss. The two topics that the callers and I go heavily in-depth on are related to following a passion, but split off to whether you should be taking your parents opinion on your life, and how you need to think about taking a leap when there are kids involved. Deep, deep calls, and I'd really love if you'd hear them out <3
Loved this quick chat before my big talk at Tampa Startup Week, defining and going into my personal brand, it's reasons and how it came to be. We also touch on selling what you believe in, and it such an important factor in successful entrepreneurship.
This was a really cool clip from a pre-show event in Tampa where I talked to a group of young entrepreneurs about take the time to make sure that you're living by your own standards and not adhering to anyone else's idea of what your life should be. If you're chasing something solely because "society" wants you to, you have to stop and evaluate what you're doing to get to that place. Some really important lessons here that I think you should hear!
Loved being on Jen Lehner's podcast - she's someone who reached out to me after hearing me on James Altucher's podcast, and started up her own podcast which she talks about the benefits about. We go into the value of kindness, and emotion when you're building a business & living the life of an entrepreneur. There is nothing more Niche than being the human being. Your Niche is being you. Over the past few days I have been emphasizing on Kindness as I believe that this is the only reason why things are working out for me the way they are. Hope you enjoy <3
This rant is for everybody that's being held down by other people and not taking control of their own life and destiny. When is it enough? When do you finally realize that this is your life and that you need to take control? When do you draw the line and say "enough"?!
Positivity. It's one of the single most powerful tools that you have to overcome any negativity in your life. If you're spitting positivity and looking at that cup half full, you are in such a better place than those losers that are pushing you down, spitting negativity.

If you're in real estate, this live AskGaryVee I did with my man Ryan Serhant is one that you absolutely cannot miss.
Super awesome to get the opportunity to sit down with Nik Stauskas for this meeting. For those of you that don't know, Nik is a basketball player in the NBA and was also on the fourth episode of #podSessions. I think that this meeting helps clarify my definitions of patience and eating dirt for any of you that have been a little confused about what I'm trying to get at...
Loved chopping it up with my man Jay Shetty, chatting about gratitude, empathy, self awareness and positivity and how the combination of all these things enable leverage in different scenarios. We dive in about how you need to learn to let things go, and not allow other peoples' negativity to push you down, even if someone's saying "you're ugly, you suck" on Instagram. The comments here are straight from the heart - hope you love it <3
You can find my man Jay over on Instagram at @JayShetty and https://m.youtube.com/jayshetty?uid=bV60AGIHKz2xIGvbk0LLvg on YouTube
There are a few key points that I really try to hit on during this Q&A session at iHop... I think that the college debt crisis is just around the corner, yet people that are already in debt are taking out loans to buy dumb shit to hide their insecurities. I really think that the NBA has a shot of going out of business as a result of players having all of the leverage and wanting to cut out the middleman. And lastly, once people realize how insane the opportunity is to work for someone like myself, like Mark Cuban, like Tim Ferriss, or like Jeff Bezos, people will actually pay to work for them because of what it does for their careers...
I really think that Tierra Whack has a solid shot of being a massive artist in this space. She has something that I don't see in many other artists, so I just think that this is going to really work out for her... Let me know what you guys thought the most insightful part of this meeting was! This meeting was easily one of the most powerful meetings I've had with a booming hip hop artist.
If you're truly doing what you love, it won't feel like you're actually working... Even though I talk a lot about hard work and hustle, I still take some time off on the weekends to spend with my family, watch Jets games, and rest. Just because I put so much emphasis on working hard doesn't mean that I'm remotely trying to say that you shouldn't be sleeping or not resting... I'm trying to say that you should be using the time that you have while awake wisely and productively.
Guys, YouTube is a staple platform for my content as most of your know, and I think it's a super important place to be, as long as it's for YOU. If you're striving to be a vlogger, or other youtuber, the biggest thing to keep in mind is that you need to be constantly providing value and engaging your subscribers, making them want to come back, and you don't need any fancy equipment to get started- just your phone. Hope you enjoy these thoughts around YouTube & the community, let me know your thoughts !!

This meeting I had with Detroit Lions Linebacker Brandon Copeland showed off some great macro-focused points that I like to get across to athletes. We talk about leveraging the name of the brand that you play for to help get ahead in business, personal branding and any other entrepreneurial endeavors you may be chasing. Utilizing a brand that gives you leverage is a massive upside that once you start to realize how it works and how to use it, you'll win. <3
I was honored to be on my good friend Sara Deitschy's FIRST guest on her brand new podcast, The Creative Exchange, I've been following her for a while and it was a blast chatting with her, talking about personal branding, Crushing It! and the future of voice and marketing. This chat was an amazing one - would mean a lot if you hit me up and let me know your thoughts, and check out Sara's new channel!

#podSessions number 4 might be the best yet. These guests were completely on fire, and it was amazing chopping it up with each of them, focusing on their individual world. Flowing from music, to sports to health and beauty, the chat here was all-time.
Hanging out with the crew at Hot 97's Ebro In the Morning was a BLAST. Loved chopping it up with this talented crew, and chatting everything from how I decided to "document over create" as early as Wine Library, staying quiet and under the radar from 2011 to 2014, how some music icons got their start by working for free and why I'm not afraid of emerging technology "always on listening". This was a FIRE chat that you really, REALLY shouldn't miss. Hope you enjoy <3

Always a pleasure to be on my man Lewis Howes' podcast and show, the School of Greatness where we got down and chopped it up about the side of being an entrepreneur and businessman that most people don't see. We chat about insecurity, my greatest challenge since I started VaynerX, what it was like starting a family while growing a business and a ton more. Hope you all love this <3
Check out Lewis' Podcast & Show Notes here: https://lewishowes.com/podcast/e-gary-vaynerchuk-insecurity-fame-crushing-business/
I was fired up for this opening keynote that I gave at VaynerExperience's first major event, Agent2021 geared at the emerging and changing digital platforms that we as marketers and strategists have to adapt to. A big point that I try and get across here, is that content marketing is still the key point that you should be focusing on- especially if you fall into either the Auto sales, insurance sales, real estate or travel demographics that this conference was focused around - legacy industries that must change to meet new platforms. Hope you all enjoy this one <3
If you're a big fan of my content, you know right off the bat that my views on college are mainly skewed towards life skills & personal skills, rather than actually gaining important knowledge, ESPECIALLY if you're working towards being an entrepreneur. Here, I'm joined by a few friends to help answer the really important question of "should I go to college", and what kinds of alternatives there are to attending higher education. There's some really good stuff in here if you're stuck in that spot - hope you enjoy <3
Episode 3 of #podSessions is IN THE BOOKS! This was definitely an all time episode, featuring new and old friends actor Jerry Ferrara, fashionista Danielle Snyder & Instagram mastermind Liz Eswein. We chop it up about everything from typecasting, to the importance of jumping on the Alexa & voice movement (Jerry isn't as keep ;) ), to our thoughts and ideals behind the next generations' adoption of technology. You realllllly don't want to miss this episode ;)
Check out my guests: Jerry Ferrara: https://www.instagram.com/jerryferrara/ Danielle Snyder: https://www.instagram.com/dannijo/ & https://www.instagram.com/danielleasnyder Liz Eswein: https://www.instagram.com/newyorkcity
Hope you all enjoy this chat with Justin, one of my Teamgaryvee guys where we chat about his ambitions and what he's looking for in the future. Starting a franchise business is a long and difficult path; it takes immense capital, time, and knowledge. My man Justin is going to have a long path in front of him, but you know what, I know that he's going to crush it as long as he puts in the time and work. <3
This was a really cool interview to do, on a Facebook live based show at Agent2021- We focused insanely heavily on voice, audio and how it's the next generation of social interaction that's reducing friction for businesses and consumers at the same time. We go in-depth on not only the benefits of podcasting and podcast consumption, but also the idea behind my Monday to Monday playlist and close out chatting around being a role model for a new generation of entrepreneurs. Hope you enjoy this one ;)

TOTAL FIRE in this keynote I did in San Francisco at Draper University last week. Loved diving into this session focused on true entrepreneurship and tactics to grow both personal and professional brands, and finding your long tail goal within all of that. This era that we're in is truly amazing, because you can actually do what you really want to do - whether it's create a business or a personal brand with, because of the invention of the internet. There's really nothing like it. The Q&A session in this keynote rocked too, diving into AI and messenger bots, the future of ecommerce, and a ticketing business. Hope you really get something out of this - there's a TON here ;)
Agent2021 may have gone, but the chats, keynotes and Q&A's here were COMPLETE fire. I loved getting together with my man Ryan Serhant for a fireside chat to sit down and talk sales, personal branding and getting into the real estate game. Loved diving in to Ryan's background and origin story, and talking about our views on the "sales" game, something that we're both in coming from a client services realm, as well as the real estate game. Some serious fire towards the end of this chat too - comparing real estate to the sports agent game, and a ton more. This is an absolutely fire chat guys, I hope you enjoy <3
Check out Ryan here: https://www.instagram.com/ryanserhant/?hl=en
This was a really cool interview I did a little while back which focused pretty heavily on becoming an influencer & starting in the video space when it first debuted. I chat about being one of the first on YouTube, and why I made the choice at the time to move to Viddler (and then back to YouTube), and chop it up about why subscriber dedication is much more important than a subscriber number (width vs depth). This is a great interview for anyone playing the video game and playing with growth on YouTube. Hope you give it a listen ;)
Watch the full interview here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xg2ygCywnd4
If you've consumed any of my content, you know that I'm extremely hot on voice, and podcasting. Voice in particular, I believe will massively impact the consumer market as it provides an insanely low friction point. Want to order some toothpaste? Alexa, Order toothpaste. It's just that easy. Here's some content demonstrating my love for the platform ;)
This one goes deep with legendary Bobbi Brown on how she built a cosmetics empire, Anna Victoria on her mission to bring more "body love" ;) and the co-founders of BALR. on how they built a thriving lifestyle business off the back of a media account with 16M followers. We dig into their obsessions in culture, how to live a better life, be authentic, share your flaws, own your struggles, and enjoy the ride. We talk tennis, following hashtags, documenting the real* you, and being smart on Snapchat! This one has it all. For those of you that don't know, #PodSessions is really the resurgence of my early silicon valley tech days where I would hang out with a lot of the web 2.0 investors and founders and talk through the state of the union in startups, business, media and more which has led me to recreate that energy though my podcast on The GaryVee Audio Experience. I hope u enjoy!
Check out the guests of this #podSessions:

This chat that I did with my good friend Casey Neistat has to be one of the best fireside style interviews ever. We go deep in this, and talk about why we both will leave money on the table to make sure we're staying true to ourselves & who we are, and how both Casey and I are all in on "attention" as a whole - we both understand that in a social first world, that's easily one of the most important things to focus on. We also chat about why technology and digital communication are positive, not negatives - because they allow such open messaging between anybody. This was a great one, and I'd love if you heard it. ;)
One of the best meetings I've ever had with a Rapper- loved chopping it up with Gunna, and I love what this guy is saying and how he's one of the most genuine lyricists in the game. He's up and coming, so we talk a ton about how the spot he's in right now is the toughest he's going to be in for a while. This is where the decisions count, and where the choices really really matter- because they affect the path he'll go down so heavily. This was a great meeting, hope you all enjoy !!
I had a quick meeting with my man Jace Norman on how he could get a social media marketing business for influencers up and running. I think that there is a ton of value in this meeting for any of you that are interested in starting a marketing/management business of any sort. Was great chatting with Jace and helping him start thinking more about his own content & business ambitions - something I think a lot of you can relate to. <3
Absolutely loved having PureWow Coterie member and Instagram fitness influencer Anna Victoria to chat building a personal brand, and how to build a team to help you do that - Once you hit a certain point, having a team to help you scale content production gains you a massive leg up on your personal brand growth, and that's something we dive really deep into here, as well as talking about who and how to hire. Some important points here for ANYBODY looking to scale their personal brand - hope you love it ;)
Loved meeting with Mentalist Lior Suchard to chat illusions, mindfulness and the power of making decisions for yourself. I don't think that this is "magic", I just think that it's practical. I feel this and understand this more a lot more than I think most people do... I just think that I'm more sensitive to it which is why I believe it.

I believe that establishing a strong personal brand is essential to success, and that they're going to replace the resume - something that's already starting. In this mashup I wanted to give you all some context around what personal branding entails, and a few tips and tricks to getting your own one started - no matter who u are. Hope you enjoy !!
Make sure you're doing what you're doing for the right reason. So many of you are creating content, or building a personal brand to try and make a quick dollar, and that's OKAY, as long as it's what YOU want. My goal is to build a legacy, which is why I give all my content away for free- it helps to build that trust and personal value that lands me where I want to be. This is a good one guys, hope you take it to heart - there's a LOT of meaning to this rant <3
This fireside chat that I did with Samsung NEXT at CES dove hard into emerging tech, and how to plan 4 to 6 years out to best be able to take advantage of the next big thing. This is something massively important, especially in the advertising and content industry where you want to be able to catch EVERY single eyeball that's relevant,you can to distribute your message, content, or idea. Loved chopping it up about how technology isn't hindering our culture, rather it's exposing who we actually are- something massively important to understand <3
This rant brings out a thought that I learned a little bit later in life - take care of yourself & your physical health. If you're not staying healthy, you're not going to be in peak mental condition either which hinders results. That's why I made the commitment to a full time trainer, to keep me accountable for my own actions & fitness. Hope you guys take this one to heart :)
Loved this high energy interview I did with 11:FS, chopping it up to what it's like to run a company and what your mindset needs to be to be able to build both a personal and professional brand. We dive into a few questions that are asked often about Vaynermedia, like client expectations, scaling business and how companies become interested in working with Vaynermedia. I then talk about my mindset behind vlogging, and how it enables my team to capture & produce as much content as we're putting out on a daily basis - a very important correlation. Some straight fire here, hope you enjoy <3
Check them out here: https://11fs.com/insights/fintech-insider/
LOVED chopping it up with my man Charlemagne as always, getting down into culture & growing up the way we did. We get deep into how our upbringings and interest in culture shaped our success & drive to become who we are today, while always having the humility to step up and get your hands dirty no matter how successful you may be. That's a huge point that I don't think a lot of people get- that you have to love the grind and the process. Hope you all love this one <3
Make sure you check out The Brilliant Idiots podcast right here: https://soundcloud.com/thebrilliantidiots
This podcast interview that I did a few years back hits home on some things that I don't talk about all that often, and lets me deep dive into what it was like coming up as an immigrant from Belarus. Loved chopping it up & getting into what I see as my parents' influence on how I function & run my businesses, and why that's shaped me to be the leader that I am today. Some really really cool stuff in here, I'd love if you'd listen & give me your feedback <3
If you follow me, you know that I believe that strong mental health is integral to success - so I love these clips that focus on my point of view on meditation, anxiety & overthinking, three topics that I think mesh well together. I'd love if you take a listen, especially if you struggle with overthinking or anxiety. Hope u enjoy <3

VaynerNation, This is serious. I'm starting a new podcast called #PodSessions where I bring in 3-4 unique guests to chop it up and talk about current culture. This is a podcast version of the "Jam Sessions" I used to have back at SXSW and all over where I would stay up late in a hotel room full of founders and cool people in silicon valley, tech, business, etc in order to talk about what's going on in our world. Whether that's cryptocurrency, music, wine, sports or "slime" it's all going to be here ;). This episode I'm joined by Instagram superstar Claudia Oshry Soffer aka @girlwithnojob, hip hop star Saweetie and renowned DJ & Comedian Cipha Sounds. Hope you all enjoy this <3
Go check out the amazing people on this episode:Cipha Sounds: https://www.instagram.com/ciphasounds/ girlwithnojob: https://www.instagram.com/girlwithnojob/ saweetie: https://www.instagram.com/saweetie/
This interview that I did while in Denmark brings some insight to topics that I don't brush on all that often, starting out with my views on Silicon Valley and how to get into that area. We the pivot to chatting about what it was like building Vaynermedia, and a few things that I wish I had done differently while building the company - some really cool insight here. We also chop it up talking about the motivational speaking I do, and what it means to me. Some cool topics covered here, hope you enjoy !!
I'm so hyped up by this fan made film that the Mulligan Brothers created. It knocks out of the park my ideas on what makes a person a true winner, and the mindset that sets one up for an advantage. Combined with the commentary from my team in the beginning, this is a powerful piece of content that I think everybody needs to hear. It comes from an episode of Impact Theory, made by my man Tom Bilyeu that I was - and it got DEEP. If you haven't watched or heard the entire episode, you should definitely check that out too.
Hope you all enjoy this one. <3

This Fireside chat I did with my close friend Chase Jarvis laid out everything it takes to make it in a creative field. We chop it up and discuss things like valuing your work (and why there's two sides to every negotiation), how client services are similar whether you're a photographer or running a $150 million dollar full service agency, and a ton of personal branding. Serious fire here - hope you give it a listen & check out Chase's page over at https://www.chasejarvis.com/blog/stage-gary-vaynerchuk-photoplus/
This meeting I took with hip hop legend Jeezy really puts out there what I'm trying to do with my companies and with my drive in general - build everything for leverage and legacy. We talk about how he got into the music game directly because of entrepreneurial tendencies. Then we chop it up into the main point of this episode, which is the reason I'm building and machine to buy and flip big brands, and how I think about it. This meeting is PURE gold and I think you'll really enjoy it ;)
This interview I did a little while back was really cool, and I think brought out a different perspective than what I usually give out - we dive into how I went from selling baseball cards to selling wine to collectors and how I gained my insight into human interaction by watching people, and deciphering what they do. I chop up why I keep my content free, and how that helps me really pull ahead in the long run. There's some really cool insights here that I'd love you to really get. Hope you enjoy <3
What's the best way to stay focused as hell? Want it. Love it. Enjoy what you're doing and learn to look at the day/week/month/year/decade ahead of you as a positive grind. These clips chop up what keeps me going and on track, and I hope they'll inspire you to do the same.

This EPIC dinner meeting I had with legendary comic & Daily Show correspondent H
