Ep. 260: Gary Vaynerchuck – Ten Things I Learn From Gary Vaynerchuk
Two of my favorite influencers…Gary Vaynerchuk and James Altucher. This is a must listen. Both of these are are “too” honest. Gary Vaynerchuk builds businesses. Fresh out of college he took his family’s wine business and grew it from a $3M to a $60M business in just five years. Now he runs VaynerMedia, one of the world’s hottest digital agencies. Along the way he became a prolific angel investor and venture capitalist, investing in companies like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Uber, and Birchbox before eventually co-founding VaynerRSE, a $25M investment fund. And… James, he is quite a character. I can’t get enough of his antics.
He is a successful entrepreneur, chess master, investor, writer and idiosyncratic lunatic. He has started and run more than 20 companies, and sold several of those businesses for large exits. He has also run venture capital funds, hedge funds, angel funds, and currently sits on the boards of several companies. His writing has appeared in most major national media outlets (Wall Street Journal, ABC, Financial Times, Tech Crunch, Forbes, CNBC, etc). His blog has attracted more than 10 million readers since its launch in 2010. This is his 11th book. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
