The GaryVee Audio Experience

It may look like I came out of nowhere in a matter of years, but in reality my success was YEARS in the making. I didn't just flip a switch and all of a sudden get on Conan O'Brien, I spent every. single. weekend from when I was 14 working, learning, listening; This rant is the story behind all that. I'd love if you'd pass this on to someone who needs it, or just needs a little push. It's all time. Enjoy <3

What do Sommelier Andre Mack, Victoria's Secret Angel Erin Heatherton, PureWow Editor In Chief Mary Kate McGrath and I have in common? We love wine. So, we sat down and did a blind tasting, with wines sent over from Wine Library and man did this episode blow up. If you're not a wine fan, don't worry- is may still be one of the most FIRE episodes ever - we dove deep into evvvverything. Can't wait to do another one of these, so let me know your thoughts on this format! <3

This Keynote was definitely one for the books. I gave this keynote to the Rise conference in Hong Kong last week, for a group of entrepreneurs, and there's some great content in here. I touched on topics focused around staying ahead of platforms that are constantly changing, but that remain within the same basic framework of what communication will remain to be, what happens to attention when large companies spend a ton of money to advertise and where you can slip in, and mapping your actions to match your drive to entrepreneurship. Hope you enjoy this one! Let me know your thoughts ;)

Acting like a media company isn't just a good suggestion right now, it's mission critical. There's no excuse for not pumping out as much content and distributing it as far and wide as humanly possible - that's just the game.  I'm trying something brand new here and having the Vaynernation read out the articles I've been pumping out on Medium. If you want to read an article, hit me up! Shoutout to Matthew Bonelli (IG: @matthewjbonelli) for this read.

This is a HUGE one. Having the guys from K-Swiss on the show was spectacular and I'm so humbled to be a part of their new launch that's breathing life back into the brand (a long with a very secret announcement coming later <3). The call-in's were unrivaled. We took questions about how the brand is planning on revamping itself, what the availability of the new sneaker line is going to be, starting a sneaker reselling business, and the mechanics around staying in a small town to build yourself up versus moving to a big city.

I'm not saying that there's no benefit in pursuing further education, just that the system isn't running at what it should be. The amount of knowledge I gained going to college, and school for that matter wasn't related to learning about business, but it was learning about people. ;)

You all know my complete infatuation with audio and spoken word, and that's why I LOVED doing this interview with Michael, the CEO of the app Anchor which lets anyone create their very own "public radio" station, and super easily publish a podcast. We talked about what it's like to launch an app, and how it's nearly impossible to survive on just a launch, what it was like growing a business from the very beginning and what's going on the audio space. Let me know what you think of this one, and follow me on ANCHOR! ;)

If you want to survive the cycle of innovation there is only one thing you need to know. You have to understand that if you remain romantic, you are going to lose. One of the reason’s I have been so successful in my career is because I followed consumer attention. I didn’t hold on to what got me here. Yesterday it was ‘91 cabernet sauvignon and now it’s rosé. Yesterday it was the six second video app Vine, and today it’s Instagram. The fact of the matter is, “The Cycle of Innovation” is nothing more than a bundle of fancy words. In reality the term means nothing. Listen to this podcast to hear more about what I think!

Turning art, music or any other sort of creative practice into a lucrative business isn't easy, which is why I loved this interview I did with popular YouTuber Josiah Brooks of Drawing with Jazza! There's a lot of really important touch points here, beyond just art like how to monetize your creative profession when the lens is currently focused on vlogging and video content, how to recognize when you should be working for free to boost exposure in the long run, and finding the balance between what the market wants and your own creative passions. This is an AMAZING one, enjoy it !!

Keep an eye on Augmented and Mixed reality, because as technology gets smaller and more efficient, these two areas will start to matter a whole lot more... Just keep in mind that as you're hustling, it's not about the money or fame - it's about not complaining. If you're complaining, you're definitely not hustling your way to a better life.

Do you really want to be selling things that you don't believe in to your friends and family? Leaving a legacy is what the goal is here. In everything I do, I want to leave behind a MASSIVE legacy of myself and what I created. Focus on the number of people that will come to your funeral, not on the number in the bank.

You need to break out of it and start making things happen.

Don't miss this one, and let me know what you thought. P.S. There's a few really great stories in here ;)

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. :)

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!! ;)

From defining the difference between marketing and sales to understanding the cohesion needed between selling and delivering on the work to feeling good about what you're selling, this week was incredibly strong with some real tactical advice being deployed.

A little while ago I got the chance to sit down with my man Chase Jarvis and talk about how to stand out when there’s so much chatter happening around you. Thumbstopping power is key right now. You need to be able to produce content that provides enough value that a consumer stops and watches your content instead of blowing right past it. Thinking you’re going to drive results within 90 days just isn’t going to happen. Deploying patience and keeping consistent, even if that consistency is in change is what you NEED to be doing if you’re trying to become successful. Give this one a listen and stick to it. DM me and let me know what you thought. :) :)

This most recent trip to London was one for the books. Stop what you’re doing right now and give this a listen! In this one I dive into why big companies are “failing” and need to start re-thinking the way they handle their marketing. Influencer marketing isn’t being utilized nearly enough, and holds so much value compared to what’s being put out today. I truly believe we’re moving towards a more voice-driven model, so listen for my thoughts on ALEXA skills & why podcasts are massively growing, my own included. You won’t want to miss this one guys.

My man, professional bodybuilder and Arnold Classic winner Kai Greene co-hosted this episode with me. We sat down and chatted the importance of time management in a daily routine, making sure your priorities are in place, getting the motivation to get up and put in the work that puts you in the place you want to be (whether that’s getting to the gym in the morning or putting the work in on your brand). Not every day is going to be your best, but the only way to grow is by continuously putting the work in. LOVED answering call-in questions about what kind of clients you should be aiming for at any point in your career and how to ramp up and gain momentum. Don’t miss this one guys….It’s a BEAST.

This one’s not just for every single young entrepreneur, or anyone that aspires to work at a place like VaynerMedia - it’s simply for everyone. The questions asked were incredible and stemmed from a group of young interns at VM. In this one we discuss what the most important year of my life was (it’s not what you think), the best way to work with and around your mentors and the people you look up to, taking a brick and mortar business and turning it into an online ecommerce brand, and exactly what I would have done differently if I could go back to college. Take this info to heart my friends - it's a really important talk and it would mean the world if you listened in. ENJOY !! ;)

Want to push towards success? Then take this one to heart. Everyone makes mistakes, but what you do with those mistakes is what makes you. Stop dwelling on them and use them as an example of what not to do again. Not one leader will tell you they’ve had everything go perfectly and exactly as planned.

How your employees feel doesn’t depend on the free granola, or fancy amenities. Here’s what I really think about all those goodies. It narrows down to feeling safe and letting them know they have room to grow. It’s true, it really is. If your company has issues, installing a water fountain with a thousand flavors, or a beer tap isn’t going to cover it up and make everything all better. It comes down to the people and how they feel. Enjoy this one and think about what your company instills.

Whether you’re B2B or B2C,  building up a brand from the beginning is a delicate process, but there’s a few key insights here to make it easier.

I loved getting down into what makes a true entrepreneur - Staying true to your own DNA, not counting on other people to get you to that next level, and learning checking your feelings at the door, because nobody cares about you as much as you. Going to six birthday parties every week isn’t what’s going to push you ahead, so think hard about those negative patterns you’ve been set in.

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 !!

Sleep as much as you can as long as you're maximizing the hours that you're awake.

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.

I might have different tactics when it comes to sales but don't get it twisted because I'm a salesman through and through. Sales can be interpreted as a dirty word to a lot of people but at the end of the day, a business isn't a business without them. Since I've been a kid I've been in sales, and yes, I might like look a little different than what many people think of when they think 'salesman' but that doesn't mean I'm any different which is why I love doing events like this especially with a company as notable as Salesforce.
