This mashup contains a host of topics that I really believe in, that drive every single business I've built - especially Vaynermedia. When you're at the top of a company, you're responsible for every single thing that happens within your company, including the happiness of your employees - I hope this mashup brings you enormous value into the inner workings of how I think about running a business & how that translates down to employee happiness, and company culture. <3

You have to do what you love and find happiness in your work and life. If you're working to get rich and retire or to buy a nice watch so that you can hide your insecurities, you will lose. Happiness is the ultimate goal. If you're not happy, the rest doesn't matter. This meeting with Xianlimm is super interesting, because I talk a lot about how I transitioned from building a business, to building my brand and then combining the two, and figuring out the balance that you need in your life.

Even the cheer at the end is slow and muted, it’s very and I mean very hard to understand the concept of loving the journey over the trophy. - It’s almost impossible when you don’t have the things that you want to understand that the chase of those things if you pick the right path will end up tasting sweeter than the items you amass. - When you want 100k followers, when you chase 10k likes a post, you don’t realize how empty it can feel when you get there and more importantly you don’t even know why, they just seem like the right numbers. - My friends, please try to start the process of understanding happiness, understanding why you feel the way you do, what makes you insecure and want a fancy car or house, why when you go through your feed you feel FOMO please understand that doing things you love will lead to the things you want even when they don’t pay you what you THINK you need to get what you THINK you want.

LOVED hanging out with these young hustlers, talking culture, basketball, content & a whole lot more. The energy in this room was REAL & I broke it down about how I came up with the Airplane Project and what it stemmed from. Then we dive into perseverance vs delusion and how to figure out how to decide what to go after - self awareness here is key. This is a seriously fire interview, hope you enjoy <3

Sitting down with this LEGEND led to a MASSIVELY good show, really flushing out a lot of details that I don't talk about often about the advertising industry and the past, present and future of where it's going. We chop it up and take calls talking to publications, and privacy and I talk more in-depth about what I'd do if I were in charge of a large brand. Super fire show here - hope u love it.

There's one way to be good at anything you want to do - just do it. This clip from an interview I did really elaborates on the best ways to become an expert on whatever you want, by doing. Want to be a podcaster? Do it. Want to start a vlog? Do it. Really important info here that everyone needs to hear. <3

Super excited to start bringing you guys a more efficient version of these keynotes that I've been putting out because I know not all of you can listen to the entire thing, so we're getting straight into the meat. These two keynotes, one from the Dutch Bros talk and the other from my iconic Breakfast Club interview both push so heavily two pillars that I talk about a lot - that you need to know yourself through self awareness and that you need to stay on the offense to get to what you want - FIRE stuff here guys, hope you're loving them <3

I think this is a super cool little piece of content - I sat down with my team to write and project my thoughts on Instagram's latest product, IGTV. Not only does this give my thoughts on IGTV, but I also talk about why I don't jump in and make predictions without experiencing new platforms and products. I think this also gives a really cool inside look at how I write my articles and arbitrage time to do so.

Really really motivated by the idea that entitlement can absolutely hinder your ability to succeed. If you feel you're entitled to something without actually putting the work in, you're in for a big surprise down the line when you're not in that Lambo. Self awareness is the big play here to avoiding that negative mindset. Hope you all love this clip & have a great weekend.

LOVED having Drake Bell come by to dive deep into something I talk a lot about - the massive advantage independent music artists have when distributing their music. I think this was a really different & interesting meeting because Drake's mindset and experience in the industry gives him a super interesting perspective on the industry. We talk about his come up, how he got both himself and his music on the TV show Drake & Josh and advice for pushing his career further. Really cool talk here for anyone that has roots or interest in producing music. Hope you enjoy!

This was an insanely fire episode of #AskGaryVee, with The Grill Dads, talking about their new show that's coming out Saturday July 21st; Comfort Food Tour. Loved loved loved having these guys on my the show - one of them, Ryan Fey is even a leader in Vaynermedia's LA office! We sit down and chop it up around the creation of the show, what makes it the most fire food show on TV, and then take some calls - We chat it up with callers about starting their own TV series, how you can encourage your kids to be active in creating content without pushing the barriers you set and even talk to a little girl who's on fire :). This was an all time show, and I really really hope you enjoy it!!!

 

Check out Comfort Food Tour, airing Saturdays at 8PM on the Food Network!

This mashup is a combination of a conversation I had with my team, around getting more creative, less lazy and figuring out new ways to use older content to benefit my audience - A lot of you probably haven't heard this content from YEARS ago, and a lot of it still applies today. I talk patience, hustle, content & community, why I'm so happy and what the "simple business vacation" is. SERIOUSLY fire content here everyone, I hope you love these throwbacks <3

This is a SUPER important interview, for a lot of reasons, I go super in depth with Paul Cutsinger about what my views of the future of voice & Alexa are, and really lay out why the space is so important. If you're as focused on the voice space as I am (you should be), this is an all-timer for you.

I threw down some serious fire while Babin and I were in Seattle at Amazon a few weeks back, sourcing questions from Instagram to answer between meetings from the back of a car - I chopped it up on why telling your truth is the best content, and what that means, why you should start a podcast and a whole lot more. Really loving these backseat answers & I hope you do too.

When you're the CEO, every single thing that's wrong with a business or company falls on you. It's your responsibility, it's your fault that it's not working or it is working - when you're at the top, it's lonely because you can't blame anybody but yourself. This rant expands on that.

Absolutely loved having Frank come on the show this week - Frank is the former CEO of The Home Depot and a non-executive chairman of Delta Airlines, among a host of other large achievements. We sat down and talked heavily about businesses at a macro level, as well as running a business internally - how and why 360 reviews aren't an efficient or effective method of reviews within a company. There's some really, really great segments here that I think you'll love.

Make sure you check out Crazy Good Turns, the Podcast about inspiring stories and people that Frank produces at crazygoodturns.org

This FIRE interview I did on my friend Elvis Duran's morning show here in NYC on Z100 was really an all-time interview. We chopped it up really hard, focusing heavily on why the older generation needs to stop categorizing millennials as all lazy, and advice for people in that generation.  Really a fire interview that I think you'll all like.

I talk a lot about the concept of "the law of attraction" and how it relates to achieving what you want to happen in life - this little snippet talks about what that all really means and how you can relate it to your own life.

For those of you that remember, a few months ago, at the launch of Crushing It!, I held a competition/raffle that if you bought 10 copies of Crushing It!, you had the chance to have breakfast with me at VaynerMedia in New York City - this is that meeting ;) I think that the vast majority of the emphasis in this video is placed on perspective, complaining, dwelling, etc... If you've been watching my content for a while and you still are in a place where you dwell on things that happened in the past or you don't truly understand how good we have it, I'm really hoping that this is the one that gets through to you..

Was awesome to have Labrinth come through and play and hang at the VaynerX lounge in Cannes, France two weeks ago. Loved sitting down with him for this little impromptu interview, chatting about number one hits and creative freedom, he also does a live performance at the end ;)

Had a great time meeting with this duo that started the channel Dose of Society, where they travel to different cities to interview locals about their opinions on local topics. I review their content and give a few recommendations on what I think can help them grow in the long term, by formatting their style and implementing a few tactics.

LOVED sitting down to chat with Ryan & his girlfriend, two prank masters to talk about their build up, and strategies for them to utilize and their audience for a long term play. This was a really important meeting that a lot of you should hear - they're being patient and their reasoning will really apply to you. Great great stuff. Hope u enjoy <3

This throwback is massively massively valuable for any music artist or creator that hasn't heard it - we talk about how Russ really put the work in during his come up (& still does), releasing music for completely free and how he thinks about patience & it's value. This is an ALL TIME episode you shouldn't miss.  ;)

This was a super cool interview that focused massively more on the Vaynermedia & VaynerX side of my life, expanding on why and how I built our new media property, One37PM - I also dive super deep into the future of voice in advertising,  and why Alexa, Google Home & similar platforms are the next thing to really look out for.

With this holiday week ahead, I wanted to bring you guys some serious fire. Losing is of the most important parts of being an entrepreneur, because no matter what, at some point you're going to take an L and be faced with a decision of what to do. Either you use it to push yourself harder or you wallow in sorrow. This mashup brings some heat on exactly what you should do.

I think everyone should listen to this due to the advice for general social media it gives, but ESPECIALLY creatives young and old in advertising because we dive deep into the old, new and changing landscapes of the advertising world. We talk about working with more traditional superiors, why you need to be thinking in tweets instead of TV spots and a ton more - this was an all time one.

 

Apologies that some of the questions were cut out - this was in a large hall and we weren't able to capture every question.
