I am completely stoked to interview Gary Vaynerchuk in this week’s episode for Your Money Your Choices. You don’t have to follow me for very long to know that I’m a huge fan of this incredible entrepreneur. Gary Vaynerchuk is a social media advocate and guru, author, video blogger with his very popular show, “Wine Library TV“, keynote speaker, and much more.
I think that I was first introduced to Gary when I saw the keynote speech that he gave in September 2008 at the Web 2.0 NY conference on YouTube. I don’t remember how I found it, but watching this 15 minute video is incredible. It will pump you up. His book, “Crush It“, is the same. It gets you going. It oozes passion and fire that comes straight from Gary’s heart. You can see it in everything that he does.
If you’ve never seen the Web 2.0 speech, it is an incredible talk and well worth the 15 minutes to watch it (Note - It contains a few cuss words though.). Gary Vaynerchuk’s Web 2.0 NY Keynote Speech – September 2008.
Gary Vaynerchuk took over his parents’ liquor store and turned it into a $50 million company. He parlayed that success into Wine Library TV, early investment in social media sites like Twitter and others, signed a multi-million dollar book deal for 10 books (#3 comes out this November), and now he runs VaynerMedia with his brother. VaynerMedia is a consulting firm that helps Fortune 500 companies like GE, PepsiCo, the NY Jets, and others with their social media and building digital brands.
What It Takes To Get Through Burning Out
In this episode of Your Money Your Choices, I interview Gary Vaynerchuk who is one of the preeminent entrepreneurs, authors, video bloggers, and business owners in America. In our interview, I asked Gary about taking back control of your finances with side hustles in addition to your day job. When I interview Gary Vaynerchuk, I asked him about using a side hustle and entrepreneurship as a way to start living the life that you ultimately want which he talks about in the Web 2.0 speech and his books like Crush It.
I also pick his brain about hitting the preverbal wall and burning out. Gary discussed with me what it takes to get through burning out and how to break through the preverbal wall when you hit it. You’ll definitely want to check out this great interview on the podcast this week as we talk about why it is still important to hustle today, the social media platforms that you should be on, and why 7 pm to 2 am can be the most productive time of your life as an entrepreneur.
As a nationally recognized speaker and author about taking social media and business to the next level, Gary Vaynerchuk has written the books: “Crush It“, “The Thank You Economy”, and his most recent book, “Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook“, is due out this November.
