The GaryVee Audio Experience

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 !!

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.

I am beyond PUMPED to bring you this one. The 4D’s is happening and this first session got me going. For those that don't know, it's a intimate day-long workshop/conference that VaynerMedia is offering throughout the year. The questions asked in this session were perfect and covered a variety of topics featured in our session. Anything from 'How to build a personal brand while balancing business,' family and your personal life, conquering the B2B space, and what to do if you’re feeling stuck and struggling. The guys in this session were incredible. Loved this one and I can’t wait for you guys to hear it! If you want to hop into a 4D session, hit us up at 4ds@vaynermedia.com!!

NBA star Mason Plumlee co-hosts this episode of #AGV with me and boy was it FIRE. Moving through 3 teams in 4 years, Mason touches on what diving into social media as a pro athlete is like and defends the common misconceptions of the big leagues. Such a solid dude which made for one of the all-time episodes. ENJOY ;)

Stop living in the SHORT TERM and think of what’s on the table further out. I can’t say this enough. If you want to be successful, it doesn’t matter what happens TOMORROW or NEXT WEEK. Think about what you need to happen to get you to where you want to be in 20 years and build towards that. -- ENJOY!!

This talk at USC is not only one of my most popular talks but it's one of my FAVORITES and it gets me SO HYPED. This one was interesting because I was speaking to an entrepreneurship class and I just don't think you can learn to be an entrepreneur which makes for an interesting dynamic ;) To be successful you need to be adapting but stay loyal to your strengths.  If you’re a true entrepreneur you understand the importance of taking your idea and running with it — there's no time to waste. You never know what tomorrow will bring and timing is massively important. These lessons don’t stop, no matter what stage of your career you're in.  Macro-patience vs. Micro-speed is everything. Don't dwell on your mistakes and just keep moving forward. Give this one a listen because you do not want to miss it.

This year’s SXSW was a HUGE one for me .. can’t believe it’s been 10 years already. Loved talking about the value of attention & why you NEED to stop listening to the negative people around you. The pressure is on for young entrepreneurs, but I truly believe this is the best time to be alive and going after whatever it is you want to. You never know what you’re going to get at a talk like this but because it was in Q&A format, you know I brought some FIRE. Make sure to tune in!

On this episode of #AskGaryVee, the LEGEND and Grammy Award winner John Legend stops by to talk “all of him”. We take calls about how the music industry is changing to a self-publishing world, diversifying into young markets, staying humble as an industry leader and defining expectations of others. SO much fun hanging out and having John on the show. Such an incredible guy. Hope you guys enjoy !!
