The GaryVee Audio Experience

It is INCREDIBLY difficult to build a successful consumer-facing app but we still live in a world where everyone thinks they can just start one. No matter what you're into in life, if you’re chasing the wrong things you’re going to lose. Period. You need to put your energy against the things that move you forward, not the things that are shiny in the moment. When I was starting my career, being an entrepreneur wasn’t cool. And sure it's cool now and I’m reaping the benefits but that doesn’t mean you can or should try and become an entrepreneur for those reasons.

Here’s an interview I did where we discussed the decline of the print industry and how the companies in those spaces should navigate the obvious shift to digital. The thing is that it’s not just theory, it’s execution that matters. The issue we’re facing these days is that media companies that are selling print don’t have to put the same amount of effort or planning in print as they would in Facebook and it also doesn’t hurt that they’re reaping the benefits from higher margins. And don’t even get me started on the lack of metrics media companies are held to when pushing print campaigns … Listen for more on how the media industry is shifting and how legacy companies that don't adjust are going to die.

Not everyone can be the #1 in their space and that’s OKAY. It all just needs to map back to what you want and what makes you happy. If Basketball is your passion but if you have no shot in being in the NBA, I can assure you’d be far happier making $80K doing something basketball-related than $150K doing something that’s not. Get it? When you get to do what you want to do and that makes you happy, you’ve won.

This was a heated conversation at SXSW between me and my main man, Bonin Bough, C-level exec and host of CNBC’s Cleveland Hustles with LeBron James. At this talk we discuss brands texting consumers, email newsletters, the importance of time, virtual currency, and personalization when it comes to branding. This one gets heated because we butt heads quite a bit but I’m a big believer in that everything needs to be debated and that’s why this one’s a winner.

The fact that my great, great grandchildren are going to be the ones who think I am the first person of our family tree just because of the content I’ve produced is an extremely meaningful thing and it can’t be taken lightly. How many of you can say they were impacted by their great, great grandparents? Thought so. And knowing that, I need to be the barometer for what the Vaynerchuk name carries. We’re all on the record for the rest of time so let’s make sure we act like it when we put ourselves out there.

This one is all-time fire. I was lucky enough to sit with The Drum in an intimate setting in front of 100 people for what is sure to be one of my best interviews. We cover a lot but at the top of the list is Virtual Reality, the thought of everyone being a media company, and the true worth of a 'personal brand.' Save this one for your longer commutes (or workouts) because you're not going to want to cut this short ;)

This question always trips me up because the truth is that what many perceive as my 'work,' I look at as my free time. I've made mine. I could do anything in the world and what I choose to do is build businesses. It’s my game. It’s my hobby. It’s what I want to do with my time. It's what I love and I implore you to work to do what makes you happy. That’s the whole thesis behind 'Crush It' - building a living based on something you love and are passionate about.

In this clip I sit down with a new hire to discuss their experience with the company so far. For all those looking to lead and build teams, here's some good insight on how to level with your employees and make them feel comfortable enough to open up to you. In this clip we discuss company culture, teams, but also side hustles, the difference between SEO and Social Media in amplifying one's brand, and the value of relationships in one's professional career.

This is a one-on-one discussion I had with a young entrepreneur out in London. He was in the early days of his business trying to scale without having much infrastructure to support his goals. At the end of the day, it just boiled down to understanding his strengths and shortcomings. Some necessary tough love here but one that many young and aspiring entrepreneurs need to here.
