The GaryVee Audio Experience

When I'm on, I'm on. Last week in Bucharest, Romania was one for the books. The guys at Brand Minds really know how to turn it on and boy was there some energy in that room. It doesn't matter about what ISN'T a play, or what you wish could be happening in your field - all you can do is react to what the best play or network or tactic is actually relevant in your field. That's all. If you're strapped for time, at least make sure you tune into the Q&A. I talk about how I trade my attention, how I push my teams to think outside the box of what their clients think is the correct move, and how I boost positivity and optimism in my companies. Enjoy this one guys because it's HUGE.

TOTAL FIRE. That's the only way to describe this AMA. Your questions were on point and I was hyped up to answer them. Dive right into this one, especially if you missed it online. It's an entirely different experience ;). I answered what I regret from my teens and 20's, why my ultimate vision is, the words that I live by and SO much more. Give this a listen and let me know exactly what you thought. I'll be doing a lot more like this so get your questions ready :)

Hope you all really enjoy this mashup from the other day. There's some great lessons in it. Most of all, you need to stop doubting yourself and overthinking things. Start DOING instead of sitting there and wondering "should I?" - Execute and things will happen. There's no reason to think of process as a constraint in your life. You need to break out of it and start making things happen. In this mashup I also talk about my thoughts on where Universities are headed, how to think about starting to grow an audience and following, why you need to not dismiss negative comments - use them to GROW. Enjoy this one!!

I'd love if you gave this one a listen, because it's SUPER important. Being self aware is something I truly believe you need to embrace and find if you want to be as successful as possible. Knowing both your strengths and weaknesses will help you get way ahead of any blockers and hiccups that come your way and there's a lot of work, time and thought that goes into figuring out yourself. Take this one to heart and embrace it. Thanks for giving it a listen <3

This week was another one for the books. Between #AskGaryVee with my dad, Sasha Vaynerchuk - which by the way shows EXACTLY where my work ethic and family business beliefs came from, my Facebook and Instagram LIVE Q&A sessions and a fire talk at Stanford with the one and only Tyra Banks, the content this week was amazing. Oh, and don't forget my Reddit AMA... ;) Give it a listen and let me know what you want to hear. Can't wait for what's in store next week <3

Loved loved loved having my DAD, Sasha Vaynerchuk on the show this week. Anyone that's in a family business NEEDS to hear this one. There's a lot of really, really important topics here, and the call-in questions were even deeper. We go back and forth about topics like what to do when you feel you're underpaid in a family (or any) business, talk to a father-son business pair about when and how to start trusting your children to lead and take over a business, and you get an EXTREMELY in-depth look at where my work ethic and practices came from. Don't miss this one, and let me know what you thought. P.S. There's a few really great stories in here ;)

This "Brawl in the hall" - talking what it really takes to win in business with former General Electric CEO, Jack Welch & Suzy Welch was amazing. We talked about an enormous range of topics, from what scares us in the future of business to social media and the fundamental rules of business that will never change. My personal favorite that Jack suggested: hire great people. I hope you love this one guys! ;)

Everyone that’s trying to decide whether to give the power to their sales or their marketing teams need to stop and give this one a listen. No matter how hard you try, or which side you’re bias to, you need both of these teams in your org. Marketing folks take flak for spending a lot with a few large successes, and the sales teams working lots of things on a lower level. Stop hating Jim in marketing or Julie in sales. Listen up and figure out how to combine the two and build a more successful org. ENJOY!

If you're building a business or just building your personal brand higher you NEED to give this one a listen. I gave a talk at Stanford University alongside Tyra Banks to people that are focusing on their own personal branding. It's time to start realizing that you need to be giving away more than you're asking for - that's the only way to see results and growth. If there's one key point to take from this it's that it doesn't matter HOW many followers your have. It's what value you provide to them, and how big of an impact you have on them. Without a loyal community a follower count is just a number. You own you, so your ambitions need to start matching and mapping your actions. Please give this one a listen guys it means a lot to me. DM me and let me know what you thought. :)

Loved doing this Q&A with everyone who tuned in on Facebook Live & Instagram the other day  - some great questions here from what to look for in the tourism industry (hint: it's BIG) to the perfect one two combo that you should be thinking of when you're creating content. Remember that not everybody is consuming the same content in the same ways. Kindness is a MASSIVE asset to  Can't wait to do more of these with you. ENJOY these guys. and don't miss the ending ;) DM me and let me know what you're thinking <3

If you saw any of this week, you know it was a busy one all around. There's some incredibly important bits in these highlights that everyone should hear. In the talk I gave at CUNY City College, I pushed hard what it's like to build up a business starting from near nothing, and introduce someone to Shopify. I talk about the direction and status of retail to a room full of VC's, and pushed hard that being an "entrepreneur" running a startup isn't "easy". It doesn't just happen. Cant' wait for you to see what's in store for next week ;). ENJOY!

Get ready for this one guys because it's complete fire. I loved hanging with Hunter Pence, a MLB player for the San Francisco Giants and his wife Alexis Pence, a YouTuber and E-Sports gamer. We answered questions about where the future of sports (including e-sports!) is headed, how to react to others trying to change your personal mechanics, how our spouses have influenced us the most, and the NUMBER ONE thing we'd say to our high school selves, if could right now. Give it a listen guys, can't wait to hear your thoughts :)

This clip from my Udemy course is key. Once you’re able to identify and combine both your passion AND strength, you’re setting yourself up to be successful. Combining my passion for wine and strength in building businesses led to the success of Wine Library and creation of VaynerMedia. Recognizing what your strengths & weaknesses are, and then reaching down into your DNA to find out exactly what and how you’re going to execute on those will without doubt push you towards success. Just because you’re an excellent marketer doesn’t mean you’re the best at creating every single video or piece of content. Look at what you’re best at and execute on them, and find someone that complements you to complete the pie.  Listen deep to these lessons, learn them, and enjoy them!!

This keynote I gave in London was nothing but FIRE. As you guys might know, I prefer Q&A since most of my stuff is out there already, and in this one we answer questions about growing a successful business in one big shot versus slow and steady, how to decide when to say no to an opportunity, making mistakes in your business and career, and much more. Patience is key my friends. Nothing worthwhile has been built overnight and everyone selling you a short-term fix is selling you bullsh*t. Absolutely love talking in London and this interview was definitely one for the books. Please give it a listen!

This keynote I gave at CUNY City College this past week was one for the books. I absolutely loved talking to these kids especially because I feel like I relate to them so closely because our upbringings were similar. My family and I were immigrants and nothing came easy. To all of you young entrepreneurs, the key is PATIENCE. It took me 20 years to build VaynerMedia. All the work that put me in a position to start the business didn't come easy and it took real time and effort. Nothing worthwhile happens easy so please don’t let the pedestal of entrepreneurship take over what you’re trying to accomplish. Shoot me a DM and let me know your thoughts on this one .. <3

Guys, this talk I gave at BCG Digital Ventures was great. Anyone that knows me knows my feelings on short term economics; they get in the way of the big picture and cause failure long term. I’m all about the long term game and the people in this room understood that. Attention is what you need to be investing in- look around. What are 99% of the people walking around you looking at? Their cell phone. This could change at a moment notice, but you need to be reacting to the world instead of struggling to drive it. Give this one a listen, you won’t regret it.   ENJOY!! ;)

Loved having fitness industry ground shaker Paige Hathaway and her crew stop by recently. They’re doing great things with her brand, and we sat down and chatted about pushing her audience growth and social strategies to the next level. Theres a few REALLY important key lessons in here; don’t be afraid to stay humble and work for free, if it’s the right opportunity. Listen up guys, this one’s a big one!!

From defining the difference between marketing and sales to understanding the cohesion needed between selling and delivering on the work to feeling good about what you're selling, this week was incredibly strong with some real tactical advice being deployed. If you're going to sell and be in it for the long term, you need to make sure you're doing it for the right reasons. Caring and truths will always win. There's just no other way around it. Hope you guys enjoy this week's highlights <3

A little while ago I got the chance to sit down with my man Chase Jarvis and talk about how to stand out when there’s so much chatter happening around you. Thumbstopping power is key right now. You need to be able to produce content that provides enough value that a consumer stops and watches your content instead of blowing right past it. Thinking you’re going to drive results within 90 days just isn’t going to happen. Deploying patience and keeping consistent, even if that consistency is in change is what you NEED to be doing if you’re trying to become successful. Give this one a listen and stick to it. DM me and let me know what you thought. :) :)

This most recent trip to London was one for the books. Stop what you’re doing right now and give this a listen! In this one I dive into why big companies are “failing” and need to start re-thinking the way they handle their marketing. Influencer marketing isn’t being utilized nearly enough, and holds so much value compared to what’s being put out today. I truly believe we’re moving towards a more voice-driven model, so listen for my thoughts on ALEXA skills & why podcasts are massively growing, my own included. You won’t want to miss this one guys. Make sure you go check out DailyVee 223 along with this. ;)

My man, professional bodybuilder and Arnold Classic winner Kai Greene co-hosted this episode with me. We sat down and chatted the importance of time management in a daily routine, making sure your priorities are in place, getting the motivation to get up and put in the work that puts you in the place you want to be (whether that’s getting to the gym in the morning or putting the work in on your brand). Not every day is going to be your best, but the only way to grow is by continuously putting the work in. LOVED answering call-in questions about what kind of clients you should be aiming for at any point in your career and how to ramp up and gain momentum. Don’t miss this one guys….It’s a BEAST. ENJOY :)

This one’s not just for every single young entrepreneur, or anyone that aspires to work at a place like VaynerMedia - it’s simply for everyone. The questions asked were incredible and stemmed from a group of young interns at VM. In this one we discuss what the most important year of my life was (it’s not what you think), the best way to work with and around your mentors and the people you look up to, taking a brick and mortar business and turning it into an online ecommerce brand, and exactly what I would have done differently if I could go back to college. Take this info to heart my friends - it's a really important talk and it would mean the world if you listened in. ENJOY !! ;)

Want to push towards success? Then take this one to heart. Everyone makes mistakes, but what you do with those mistakes is what makes you. Stop dwelling on them and use them as an example of what not to do again. Not one leader will tell you they’ve had everything go perfectly and exactly as planned. Take the shit that comes along with the riches and make your mistakes. Love this one guys, enjoy it :)

How your employees feel doesn’t depend on the free granola, or fancy amenities. Here’s what I really think about all those goodies. It narrows down to feeling safe and letting them know they have room to grow. It’s true, it really is. If your company has issues, installing a water fountain with a thousand flavors, or a beer tap isn’t going to cover it up and make everything all better. It comes down to the people and how they feel. Enjoy this one and think about what your company instills.

Young entrepreneurs listen up! This one’s for you. If you’re gonna go start a business, there’s some tips in this you’re going to want to hear. Whether you’re B2B or B2C,  building up a brand from the beginning is a delicate process, but there’s a few key insights here to make it easier. In this keynote, I talk about how culture is key to building a trusted brand, whether you should be advertising on Facebook or LinkedIN, and where I see Alexa & smart devices going. Stop rethinking your decisions & judging your moves, start betting on other people. This one’s total fire - can’t wait for you to hear it!! :)

Here’s an interview with my man Aubrey Marcus, CEO of ONNIT, on his podcast. He’s a mastermind entrepreneur and fitness expert who built at $28 Million fitness brand in 5 years. I loved getting down into what makes a true entrepreneur - Staying true to your own DNA, not counting on other people to get you to that next level, and learning checking your feelings at the door, because nobody cares about you as much as you. Going to six birthday parties every week isn’t what’s going to push you ahead, so think hard about those negative patterns you’ve been set in. Make sure you tune into Aubrey’s podcast because this man knows what he’s talking about. You’re going to love it! ;)

Small business owners, this one is for YOU. The questions here stem from the BioGuard conference I spoke at a few months back and boy were they fire. If you're a small business and you're looking to grow locally then it's a no-brainer that you need to harness the huge amount of tools sitting in front of you. In this one we cover questions relating to where to get started with social media (hint, Facebook Ads and down and dirty customer data) and why you NEED to learn to build social strategies into your existing markets. Provide value and keep attention by adding to a conversation - not just jumping straight into “WE SELL THAT!” mode.  Would love to know what you guys think about this one !!

COLLEGE GRADS LISTEN UP! You’re about to enter the part of your life where you make the most opportunity for yourself. Now’s the time to get out there. Now’s the time to be willing to work for nothing and get yourself to where you need to be. Stop craving the short term gains and think about where you want to be when this window is gone. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know exactly what you want to do - it only matters that this is the 5 year window for you to attack the life that you want to win. Class is easy. Life is not. Don’t forget this one!! DM me and let’s chat.

This is what it’s all about. Whether you’re growing a brand or starting a new company, there’s only one thing in your absolute control: WORK. Practice it. Preach it. Do whatever you gotta do because it’s the single most important thing in moving forward. Sleep has nothing to do with it. Sleep as much as you can as long as you're maximizing the hours that you're awake. There’s no success without sucking it up, putting in the time and pushing yourself harder to get where you want to be. Get hyped, and get ready to make it happen !! You're in full control.
