If you haven’t heard of Gary Vaynerchuk, best known as “Gary Vee” you may just be sleeping under a rock. (I’m kidding) But seriously – with over 20 million combined followers across his platforms, Vaynerchuk has made a significant impact on generation z. I’ve previously covered the toxicity of the entrepreneurship community on social media but Gary Vee is one of the very few entrepreneurs that keep it real.
Gary Vaynerchuk is the chairman of VaynerX along with being the active CEO of VaynerMedia. VaynerX is a modern-day media and communications holding company that includes VaynerMedia and VaynerCommerce. Over the last few years, he has branched out even further and launched Gallery Media Group, PureWow, ONE37pm, and been a partner in VaynerSports, Green Street, and Resy.
Here are some key takeaways from Gary Vee:
Gary always preaches this idea of starting now. You don’t need a massive team, office space or even a perfect business plan to be successful. With the internet and all the resources available to everyone, start today and learn as you go.
Keep it Real.
Gary always makes sure to be his authentic self and not alter his content for views or likes. It’s important to be completely raw, and let your true self thrive.
Bet on Yourself.
Vaynerchuk always stresses the idea of betting on yourself. Whether that means putting 3% of your paycheck into building your personal brand or your business, it’s important to believe in yourself in everyday life and in the business world.
