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.

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.
