The GaryVee Audio Experience (business)

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!! ;)
