Gary Vaynerchuk, or Gary Vee, as he is also known, is an entrepreneur that moved from the Soviet Union to the United States when he was still a kid. His first business? A lemonade stand, same as many other kids in the country and other parts of the world. When he was 14, he joined the family’s retail wine business and took over as soon as he finished college. He revamped the company and drove it to bigger success with his daily webcast talking about wine.
In 2011, he built his own digital ad agency along with his brother, which they called VaynerMedia. They grossed $100 million bucks in 2016. And now, we all #HailGaryVee.
He has a very clear mission on sharing his experience in business and as an entrepreneur. Having a social media agency, he uses all the main social media channels to get his wisdom to those who are willing to listen and act. He tells you the truth; all real talk, no BS. He cusses, he has a loud and strong voice, and he is very up-to-date and sometimes dares to make predictions.
We recommend you to follow him on whichever outlet you’re more keen to, but our favs are:
- His podcasts that are perfect for commutes, cooking, washing dishes, or taking a shower. There’s no time to waste in the road to success.
- His YouTube vlog that will make you feel that his cool buddies are your buddies too and catch a glimpse into his lifestyle
- His Medium account is the perfect way to pick his brain without having to cold-email or cold-call.
