You can’t really describe Gary Vaynerchuk. He’s more of an experience. He’s written best-selling books. He’s grown not one but two entrepreneurial companies into blockbuster businesses. He speaks; he podcasts; he has an epic social media presence. But knowing this doesn’t prepare you for the human hurricane that is Gary Vee.
Curious? You can catch him live at next week’s THINK It Out in Washington, D.C. Meanwhile, check out this, the first episode of #AskGaryVee. In it, you learn key points about our host:
He’s not an evangelist.
“Truth is, I don’t give a crap about converting one person. I’m only speaking to the converted. Don’t waste energy on the people that can’t consume it. Just go full offense on the people that have already bought in.”
He’s not a cheap date.
“Fifteen people a day, every day, hit me up: “Can you give to charity?” “Can you retweet this for charity?” without even saying “Hello.” Can you romance a girl?”
He’s not a detail guy.
“Being 85 percent effective in your short-term moves because you’re 110 percent effective and focused on your long-term goal is actually moving you quicker along the way.”
He’s not your silent partner.
