About the Episode

On this episode, I talk to mega-influencer, media and entrepreneurship powerhouse, Gary Vaynerchuk, a man who has revolutionized how business owners communicate and operate. Through his business ventures, Gary has been able to build massive companies that aren’t just successful in terms of social media popularity, but also run as well oiled machines operationally, something many entities struggle with. Gary’s businesses have been successful because he understands the importance of patience when building something that can dominate for years. 

 

Gary Vaynerchuk is the chairman of VaynerX, a modern-day media and communications holding company and the active CEO of VaynerMedia, a full-service advertising agency servicing Fortune 100 clients across the company’s 4 locations.

 

In addition to VaynerMedia, VaynerX also includes Gallery Media Group, which houses women’s lifestyle brand PureWow and men's lifestyle brand ONE37pm. In addition to running VaynerMedia, Gary also serves as a partner in the athlete representation agency VaynerSports, cannabis-focused branding and marketing agency Green Street and restaurant reservations app Resy.

 

Gary is a highly sought after public speaker, a 5-time New York Times bestselling author, as well as a prolific angel investor with early investments in companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Venmo, and Uber.

 

Gary is currently the subject of DailyVee, an online documentary series highlighting what it’s like to be a CEO and public figure in today’s digital world, as well the host of The GaryVee Audio Experience, a top 100 global podcast, and host of #AskGaryVee, a business and advice Q&A show which can be found on both YouTube and Facebook. Gary also appeared as judge in Apple’s first original series “Planet of the Apps” alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba and Will.i.am.

 

As business owners, we are often so focused on short-term ROI that we kill our own long-term success. Gary’s success at building massive, solid and profitable companies comes down to his ability to put his focus on the future, not getting instant gratification now.

  • Why we shouldn’t be too worried about short-term ROI. 
  • How to practice patience with an unknown future looming over our heads. 
  • The most misunderstood thing about Gary Vee.
