Gary Vee Is The Bees Knees!
Gary Vee (Gary Vaynerchuk) is awesome and is someone you should look into if you haven’t already. I discovered him for myself while listening to Pat Flynn’s Podcast Smart Passive Income. At first, I didn’t care for him. I thought he was just another extremely macho, egotistical guy telling others how to live their life and why they should follow him. Kinda like the guy who reads books in his garage next to his Ferarri. But the more I listen to him, the more his words make sense.
“Crushing It” is the first book I’ve purchased from Gary Vee and is really good. Just listening to the stories told by those who are actually crushing it makes this book an easy read…or listen as it’s an audiobook. But then I discovered his podcast and his YouTube channel. I have yet to really find anything he’s said that I’ve called bullshit on. There are some things he says that is really a punch in the stomach, but I that’s actually a good thing because it’s true.
Joe Rogan Experience Episode #910
And then Joe Rogan Experience Episode #910 happened. Talking about how he got his father’s wine business up from $3M to $60M in three months. How wine lovers are really just douchebags. Just take a few moments and listen to this episode. It’s really all over the place from various topic to topic but contains very interesting concepts ranging from wine to artificial intelligence to complainers. Hugh Jackman on steroids? It’s in here too.
Gary Vee has a ton of insight and remarkable foresight to construct plausible futuristic concepts together. On the set of Tom Bilyeu’s Impact Theory, Gary Vee spoke about keeping things in perspective. About how his friends working 9 to 5 are often happier than those making millions every year. They get into Gary Vee being a contradiction. He’s all over the radar but he’s actually being true to himself. Listen to him go off on enjoying losses at the 26min mark. Then when you think you’ve got your fill of this interview, check out his final answer of how he wants to impact the world (43:38). Awesome.
The man obviously doesn’t need me to be a cheerleader for him. He’s doing a great job for himself. After all, he’s set to become the next owner of the New York Jets. But if there’s anyone reading this post who’s not sure of who this guy is, you’d better check him out. I think you’d be pleasantly surprised about how relative and applicable his message is to you. The more I listen to him, especially after hearing his 43:38 answer on Impact Theory, the more I believe our desires are on a parallel plane. Listen to him talk about how he treats his people and how he contrasts that with Steve Jobs and tell me that he’s not on the right path.
The Gary Vee Audio Experience Podcast
The reason why I’m really digging this guy is that he’s so NON-PC that it’s refreshing. He tells it how it is. Our society today is SO SOFT that everything that everything hurts. Everyone is offended. Everyone is mad. He’s using the chip on people’s shoulders to motivate and inspire action. This is really where I fall in. I spent copious amounts of time listening and reading to content. While it did work to provide the needed mindset, I failed to take action.
If you’re in the same position I was, Gary Vee will push you towards action. If you’re willing to look past being butt-hurt and willing to look past why you’re oppressed, then you’ve got a chance to make things happen. But as always it’s up to you.
