The GaryVee Audio Experience (business)

I am starting a new series on the podcast - From My Inbox To Your Ears - where I will be sharing stories of people who have executed on the advice that I have been sharing for free through the years.

In the first episode, I share a real-life story of being happier when you make less than what you made in a 9-5 job that you hate, only because you decide to follow your passion and start loving what you do. 

Tweet @garyvee and let me know your thoughts on this series.

It doesn’t actually matter to me whether you want to work 18 hours a day for the rest of your life, live on the beach, or watch Netflix all day.

I’m just putting pressure to get people’s actions to map to their ambitions.

Hope this episode helps a few of you figure out who you are, your strengths and weaknesses, and gives you a better sense of what you want to do.

It’s very rare that someone comes to me with an idea or a project and I really think it’s going to work.

Sometimes, I’ll respond to a 27 or 28-year-old kid and tell them it’s going to “work” if they stick with it for 7 or 8 years, and they’re disappointed — because they think “34” is old.

I address it in this podcast - really hope this breaks through to a few of you.

If you hate your Monday through Friday, you’re in big trouble.

I really want to put pressure on this conversation — I see so many people today living for the weekend and cheering for Friday because it’s a “relief” from their week.

Don’t get it twisted — I love family time and I’m not saying to not spend time with people you care about, but if you’re using the weekend as an “escape” from your week, you need to figure out an alternative.

Hope this podcast helps put this in perspective for a few of you :) Let me know what you thought @GaryVee on Twitter

A lot of entrepreneurs and marketers miss the point when it comes to influencer marketing …

It’s not about who has the most followers or who’s “verified.” It’s about who has the attention of the people you’re trying to reach.

The truth is, many micro-influencers with 1,000 - 4000 followers will produce better business results for a company than a verified account with 300,000 followers because they have more “depth.” 

I talk more about this and other strategies small businesses can use to grow sales in 2019 :

1. Charge more for your time

2. Understand the impact of Micro Influencers

3. Balance listening to the market & holding your conviction

I really believe that 2019 is the year of LinkedIn. If you’re in B2B, it’s the single most important platform you need to be spending your time on.

This podcast is from a Q&A I did with business owners, many of whom are selling to other businesses. I talk about how the $1.80 Instagram strategy can apply to LinkedIn, how the platform has changed over the past few years, and more.

1:50 - How to apply the $1.80 strategy on LinkedIn

8:22 - Quality content is subjective to the consumer

12:17 - Creative ways to market a franchise business

This podcast mashup is about something that I am most passionate about and I also think a lot about. It's a constant challenge to create a wonderful work environment without creating entitlement and keep people fired up to work for you. 

If you or someone around you is struggling with transitioning from being a practitioner to becoming a leader, please listen to this or share this with that person. 

Would love to know your thoughts on this, so tweet @garyvee and let me know your POV.

A lot of people are in jobs they don’t like because they tie themselves down with expenses that don’t actually make them happy.

It’s an issue for so many … the truth is, a lot of people would rather “look the part” and posture to their friends like they’re building a business instead of doing “unsexy” things that’ll make them money and bring them closer to leaving jobs they don’t like.

Loved this conversation with Joshua Coombes around how I think about Giving in a 2019 world, especially in the non-profit world.

I wrote Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook to explain this side of marketing, because most people that are offering to give, are really trying to take and most are not even aware of the vulnerability of their behavior.
