Who is Gary Vaynerchuck?

Gary Vaynerchuck, or Gary Vee as he is more commonly known, is a serial entrepreneur, author, internet personality, and investor based in New York. Gary Vaynerchuk is a “purebred entrepreneur” who fashioned business at a very early stage in life. Coming from a family of 8 in Queens, New Jersey, he later moved to Edison. He is what one might call a serial entrepreneur, grabbing any viable opportunity he sees where he can invest his money and multiply it further. His versatility shines in the sense that not only is he an entrepreneur and investor but also a 5 time New York Times best-selling author who is highly decorated, and a widely acclaimed public speaker. He considered the “internet” as a boon for upcoming businesses and grabbed the opportunity of using it to make a significant boost to his entrepreneurial journey. He eventually aspired to streamline his business into a media company, tapping into the vast and immense power of the internet.

The most alluring and charming fact about Gary Vaynerchuk is how he does not shy away from promoting himself and seizes any opportunity that presents itself. Having started his entrepreneurial journey at the mere age of 7 with a lemonade stand, he joined his father’s business and multiplying the revenue on that many times over through harnessing the novel power of the internet. Paid campaigns, advertisements, and email marketing were all a part of his elaborate plan to expand his father’s business, and later on when he realized the immense potential of marketing via the internet, he tapped into its power, investing in it, and starting his own media company known as VaynerX and an advertising agency named VaynerMedia.

He started several other ventures as he expanded into the market. As each day passes, he keeps inspiring more and more people with his journey and his experiences, showcasing to people how everything is possible with a little skill and hard work. What we can take away most from his journey is the way he gradually expanded his business, understanding the little nitty-gritty details of each market he ventured into. If we closely look at all his ventures and try to deliberate what was the most essential ingredient of all, it was perhaps the meticulously planned steps he took to boost his ventures, and his communication skills. Having leadership abilities and skilled communication can establish a healthy relationship between employees and promote teamwork.

Gary Vaynerchuck Quotes

“Life shrinks and expands on the proportion of your willingness to take risks and try new things.”

“I put zero weight into anyone’s opinion about me because I know exactly who I am. Can you say the same?”

“Live your passion. What does that mean, anyway? It means that when you get up for work every morning, every single morning, you are pumped because you get to talk about or work with or do the thing that interests you the most in the world. You don’t live for vacations because you don’t need a break from what you’re doing—working, playing, and relaxing are one and the same. You don’t even pay attention to how many hours you’re working because to you, it’s not really work. You’re making money, but you’d do whatever it is you’re doing for free.”

Each of his quotes emphasizes on the fact that time is a major aspect in life and enjoy the time you have with people around you and your own peace of mind doing what you’re doing. Whatever you are working on every day must be able to get you free of stress instead of adding to it unnecessarily.
