#AskGaryVee Episode 188: Business Networking 101, Yelp Advertising & The #AskGaryVee Book


– One this episode,
I talk about pooping and John Quincy Adams. (uptempo music) – [Gary] You ask questions and I answer them. This is the #AskGaryVee Show. – Hey everybody
this is Gary Vay-ner-chuk and this is episode 188
of the #AskGaryVee Show. India’s here. India is here. The show is on fire. I’m feeling very good, I’m very excited. Is this my last show
before the book comes out? – I think so, yeah. – Am I doing one Monday? We should bang out one Monday because I’m going
to be all jazzed up. So we’ll do one
at the Core Club. Where we’re hanging
out all day Monday. So I don’t have to do
my last right hook, but big shoutout
to the VaynerNation that’s stepped up real nice. Actually, what’s the ranking right
now on Amazon? Stepped up really nice. I saw a lot of people
say that they bought it. I’m making assumptions here. Did it go down, no? This is the Kindle version. 365. – [India] That’s how many
days that are in a year. – That’s weird. A bunch of you won the Snapchat
Instagram contest today. I’ll do another one tomorrow. That was a lot of fun. I am Snap storying, then I’m telling them to go
do something on Instagram. Which makes it very easy
for me to engage with them. I just tag Brittany. Brittany is sending
books like it’s her job. I guess it is her job. That was funny. Alright, India. Let’s do this, we haven’t done this in a while. India, let’s get into the show. Let’s do it. Yesterday was a good show, by the way. If you just watching this
for the first time two years from now, you should go back
and watch 187. The quality. I’ve got to tell you, the VaynerNation is very smart. The comments, my energy was down, I felt sick yesterday, there was nothing too crazy. There was no funny thing. I didn’t Miley Cyrus it and slam my chair, but the comments were on point. I watch some people best
show in a long, long time. The answers were tight. Sometimes when I’m in
my lowest energy mode, I’d probably switch
like 5 to 10% of the entertainment
value to the quality value, and I think a lot of those
shows are quite good. Today on the other hand, I am in a jumpy mood. (hits desk) Let’s do it. – [India] This one’s
from Haniel. – Haniel? – [India] Daniel with an H. – Haniel. – [Voiceover] Haniel asked
“How hell did you handle “content creation when
VaynerMedia was only five people “to begin with?” – Easy Haniel. Is he asking for my brand or how we did it for others? – [India] Vayner,
brands that we. – Haniel, first of all we started at seven
or so when we started. We were also a community
management company for the first 18 months so
we actually did no creative. India, you might’ve even being here when we
just started doing creative. – You had just
started the CCC role. – [Gary] Which became the MCP. – Which became the MCP. – Were you like oh my God, I’m a community
manager maybe one day I can be a CCC? – [India] Yeah. – Did I ever tell you
I named it CCC as an homage to the Soviet Union because of the CCCP? – [India] Did you really?
– No. – [India] Didn’t think so. – We handled it very easily. We got to about
20 or 30 or 40 people when we first started doing it. We took a very junior people. We were getting paid
very little of money by the clients. What we we’re producing
was native content, jab, jab, jab,
right hook for clients and they have
no idea what it was. The big agencies
that had creatives, they didn’t know
what it was and they were
disrespectful to it. They were like that’s
not real creative, tv is. Not a picture
on Facebook. They still say it, which is the beginning
of their demise. So we just willed it. People that were kids, I was like who knows Photoshop? Me, great you’re a designer. Let’s go. It was scrappy. It’s what you do in the beginning. All these bullshit
entrepreneurs that I’m mad at, you know why I’m mad? You know how many of them
went skiing this weekend? You know how many entrepreneurs
went skiing this weekend? People that raised money, they’re not making any money and the only way they
continue their business is if they raise more money. The macro economic
climate is getting tight. China, oil. People are not throwing
around money the way they did even six months ago and they’re skiing. – [India] You hate mountains. – Right I do hate mountains. That happened on the show or somewhere else? Do we know what episode? – [India] Garyveehatesmountains.com – Is Garyveehatesmountains.com
still up? – Hates mountains. – [Staphon] That’s when
we were on 15. – Amazing it is. Amazing. Staphon instead of that
just put it up for a second. (camera clicking sound) – [Voiceover] Fabian asked,
“Do you think you using “Yelp advertising for
local photographers “is worth the minimum $300-$400
a month in investment?” – I have no idea. That is a rarity on this show. The truth is I’ve
been down on Yelp for a very long time. About five or six years ago, maybe even Thank You
Economy I referenced this that I thought there
would be absolute demise in anonymous reviews. I believe that has
happened to some degree. I think we’ve seen anonymous
review places struggle. I think we’ve become
cynical to anonymous reviews because we have friends that
work at anonymous review PR agencies. Literally you guys all
have friends that you know work at companies when
you have beers with them and they’re like at my PR
company we leave negative reviews on our
competitors of our clients. It’s ludicrous. Because I thought
that was a problem, I kind of never got excited
about Yelp five years ago. I haven’t paid attention. My intuition is that
Yelp probably has enough. Actually here we go I like bringing value. 400 bucks?
– [India] Yep. – You should do it. Anytime you can afford to learn and crash and burn, you should do it. Not that all of you
have 400 bucks to spare. Because if you did, I hope you bought 20 copies of the #AskGaryVee book. I would absolutely
spend 400 bucks because even if you return nothing, you don’t have to #AskGaryVee. You don’t have to Google it up. You actually lived
it in real life. I would tell you to spend
it if you can afford it because of the context. This is what I talked about the other day that caught a lot of people’s attention, micro loss but the macro win. This is the perfect
example of it. You might have a micro loss
when you spend 400 bucks and you got nothing, but the learning is you
don’t have to spend time and energy figuring out Yelp
maybe greater than that ROI. I think we should write
a micro macro piece. What do I mean
about micro losses and macro wins. Just how you learn. Why learning is really valuable. Real-life learning. It’s that real-life
learning, Staphon. Not that, I’m going to memorize
who the president is and regurgitate it and get an A. Bullshit, I mean I didn’t have this. You kind of needed to
know John Quincy Adams is the second president. You didn’t need to
know that crap, right? Or is it John Adams
the second one and then John Quincy later? Of course you don’t know because it doesn’t
mean anything. It doesn’t mean anything. Go ahead. John Adams is the
second one, I think. Then John Quincy’s later. – [Staphon] Yeah. Which is some shit in itself. Just add the Quincy. – [India] I had the ruler and the multiplication table. – You did? You like cheated? – [India] Yeah. – John Quincy Adams
was the sixth president of the United States
of America. Fuck you, Mrs. Thompson in history class. (laughter) That was actually pretty good. Clip that, Staphon. Anything that makes you
laugh that big is good. Let’s do it. – [India] From David. – Told you entertainment
value was coming. It’s actually interesting too. We were living through the death of the value of information. Storing information in your
brain is just not valuable. Go ahead. – [India] From David. – By the way,
look at this man’s face. (laughter) (inaudible) He’s not happy. He’s like no one is going to
remember what president I was. One day the Internet
is going to come along. – [India] I don’t think
we’re going to forget. – I actually will never forget. You know what’s funny? The brain is powerful though. I will literally never
forget that John Quincy Adams is the sixth president. Do you know why? I’ve now associated
John Quincy Adams with Mark Sanchez in my brain. – [India] There you go. – That’s how I
remember everything. I literally do that
for everything. I literally memorize
my passport numbers on Sheldon Richardson, Mo Wilkerson, Mo Lewis, you know I just. – [India] Numbers? – Mmhm. That’s what I do. Let’s do it. – [Voiceover] David asked, “I’m coming to
New York for a month “in the fall purely to network. “Where would you go to network “if you were New York novice?” – Do you know what
I did with this guy? I retweeted this and said VaynerNation
help this dude out. – [India] Oh really. – Yeah. – [India] It didn’t even
show up on the thing. – No? – No. – Interesting, weird. It doesn’t even say
that you did it. – Let me just make sure it’s him or it’s not somebody else. Yeah I did this. – That’s so weird. – Why wouldn’t you know that? – I don’t know. – That’s funny because he would
have normally known that. – I thought it was. – Because I retweeted him. Maybe that’s why? – Wouldn’t it show up in retweets then? – Yeah but it’s weird. Well David. You know. I think that. I think that you know. You can do it a lot of ways and the way you’re doing is probably the right
way which is when you reach out to somebody
in the market like I did I actually
want to do something funny and say hey. Pass it on. And some people
reached out to you. And the other thing is you just you know use
your social graph and use information right there’s a lot of
places to network. I think Meetup.com is still an old school. web 2.0 site that you can find
some stuff out about. So that’s that’s a scoop. Nothing you know. I don’t have a really great. I don’t think
it’s a great question. – [India] Really? – I think you were you did the right
thing by asking me because I could’ve been
in the mood to answer it but in the way
my brain is today. I don’t you know. Use people, use information I mean
people are information now. You know. I’m interested in that. You know. Back to Yelp. I actually. Ha. See you did it again India. One of the reasons I was down
on anonymous review sites was I was like this social
media things going to happen. And I can just
go to Twitter search and put in restaurant or put in restaurant names. And use people’s opinions
that are doing it publicly. So I still think people
is a great way to go. And get down people rabbit holes
all day long right. You see somebody. You know you ask
somebody on Twitter, they retweet it like I did. Or somebody else
replies, people. I think another
cool thing is Tastemakers like the fifty best
chefs in New York. Or the fifty coffee
houses in New York that have Twitter accounts. So I think Google with Twitter’s interesting. Top fifty coffee shops
in New York City. Search, boom. You get a list. This is if you really
want to come to New York for a month and
network, right? Then you look at the list. And then you find
them on Twitter and then you ask them. Hey, Mort’s Coffee Shop, are you great
place for networking? You’re going to
get seven of them of the fifty that reply. Three of them going to
offer you free coffee and introduce you
to the owner like. Life is about grabbing it. If you go on the offense, funny things happen. You know if you take
the time to do what I just said tactically. That’s inevitable of those fifty on Twitter seven will reply
with free coffee. Three will do something cool. I like grabbing life. Yeah like you know
what I mean like. I really think so much of
this comes down to that. Like are you on the offense or are you on the defense? Right like oh I’ll just
go to New York and ask a couple of friends and go to one Trip Advisor
site you know what I mean. Or you can put in
the work in a world, this is why Twitter
is so special. It’s so special. Please do me a
favor VaynerNation. Tonight for an hour, an hour, it’s a lot of time tweet at 25 people that you’d love to have
a conversation with. And don’t go Mark Cuban and Daymond John’s and Zucks. Go with like the account for your four
favorite restaurants. In your local town. And just say, Sallows I love your stuff. I’m telling you right now. Come back to this thread
on Facebook and YouTube. I will show you enormous
things that happen because of it. People that eat
for free for weeks. People are going to
meet people for weeks. People are going to meet
a local entrepreneur who built a 37-year
restaurant chain that they may
learn something from. Everybody gets impractical with grabbing life. I’m going to get Mark Cuban. One of you out of a million are going to get
Mark Cuban for a coffee. But if you hit up your
favorite pet shop. India hit up your art
museums where you paint. You know like hit them up like. I really believe in that. I really do. Or like if you really
are into museums like go find a museum account. And then hit up. And Google this. It’s Google. But it’s like you know. Google the director
of the museum. They inevitably have
412 nerd followers. And then you hit them up and you’re pumped. But I’m here Saturday let’s have a conversation. Go to Napa. You can go. And like get a list
off of SFDaily.com or you can get that same list then go to Twitter
tweet at the winery and tweet at the owner and wine maker of the winery and have a totally different
experience for no cost except the hour of actually
putting in the work. The dude. The dude, and listen all
you are doing this and there’s some serendipity, but the dude that DM’d me today Alexander Waslewski from Poland. He took it at bat and by the way tons of you do. And a lot of times I
don’t do it all the time. It’s serendipity. But today. Alexander
Waslewski in Warsaw, Poland is getting a signed book
coming to his house. Just keep fucking swinging. You know what I mean the math is the math. Like just keep swinging. – [India] It’s true.
– I know. I live it. (inaudible) – Yeah I’m super pissed
that you won that battle that question I
completely poo pooed. I wonder if I subconsciously
forced it to produce great content because
I love you so much. – No, no , no that’s fine. It’s possible. – Just because it’s not in
your benefit you’re like, ok. Like do you
think that’s possible? – Yes, that’s how much you care. – That’s a bigger compliment
than saying you won that little micro debate. – Yeah, I’m never going to win the micro debate. – I don’t like anybody
wining any debates with me. (laughter)
Let’s move on. – From Danny. – Danny. – Hey Gary. Good luck with your book. Today we’ll be right in there
in London for the event. If you don’t have
your ticket, get them. Here is my question. Daily Vee is giving us big insight into how unpredictable
your day can be. How crazy it is. Do you have an pillars? Any consistent things
you do everyday? Do make sure you do everyday
to keep you on track? – The only thing that I can say that I consistently do is wake up, take my phone
and go poop. It’s truly the only 100%, I don’t know if that
means I’m balanced or whatever that means
in that weird world. It’s the only thing
that always happens. And I like it because ironically I like it. for the weirdest reason because I don’t want to poop during the middle of the day. I’m pumped that I don’t waste. And by the way I like
to poop for a long time. Like I don’t go in like I’m
not a utilitarian pooper. I’m like 15, 20 minutes. Like the phone
really get in it. You know, work. So I like I actually don’t
like pooping in public. – [India] You mean like
in a public bathroom? – At VaynerMedia. – [India] Oh yeah.
No one likes pooping here. – I mean it’s just
not fun to poop with other people there. – [India] It sucks. – That’s why I like
European airports. They have like really private stalls by comparison. Something the US could
really learn can use some more
private pooping places. – [India] I agree. – So that’s the only
thing I do consistently. I would say I work
out now every day. That kind of starts my day. So I know that
was a little weird but that’s the truth. I don’t know what
we’ve learned from that. Probably not that
much so I apologize, VN. – [India] A morning
that’s been consistent. – Consistent mornings. – [India] Last one from Kyle. – Kyle. – Kyle asked what are
you most worried or nervous about for the
#AskGaryVee book launch? – Nothing. Kyle, it is in the bag at this
point we did our work. There’s nothing
like preparation. It feels amazing. It’s just the best. Listen I lived
through 12 years of lack of preparation. You know scary it
is to come to school when your book report is due. And everybody in
your class puts it in. And you didn’t even do it. You didn’t even do it. Like I didn’t even do it. Like do you know how weird it is when you get that
scantron in you’re like what are we
going to do today? B, C, A, D, D, D. I bet you they
went D crazy today. D, D, C. Like I lived 12 years
of lack of preparation because of school. And now I’ve lived. 18, 22 years of full preparation. Eighteen years of full
preparation at all times. And so I’m not nervous. We’ve done what we
were supposed to do and the presales show it. And 18 months of the content that I’ve been putting out is showing it. And we’re at three to four X the book sales of Jab, Jab, Jab
Right Hook at this point so we are cruising. – [India] Terrific. – As a matter of fact I’m turning down all the offers now like
come here to me it’s over. You want me to come. You fucked up, it’s over. Now it’s 80K cash in my pocket. That’s it you don’t
even get the books. I just show up like gotta take
advantage of the arbitrage. Question of the day. What are you most nervous about? I have seen an incline in
the VaynerNation interacting with each other. I do believe there are seven to 11 brave souls on Facebook and YouTube that will leave real authentic
answers to this question. And I believe that is powerful. And so I’ll try to
take a peek at that. And that’s the scoop. You keep asking questions. I’ll keep answering. Give me this. – [Andy] The Show! – Andy got hyper. Good job, Andy. What’s up guys? Babson is going to be fire. Babson, Boston
I’m excited about. (low beeping noise) I have a signed copy on the way. Can not wait, yay. What’s up? Columbus, Ohio, no. Istanbul, I love you. Guys, you have to see savvy sexy socials. Music video review of the book. It is bonkers. We’re about to tape the show. A lot of times I Periscope it live but today I’m not going to. Shut down. (uptempo music)

  1. This is probably more weird than you going "there" on the #AskGaryVee show but one of the things I learned about my brand is that people appreciate my "transparency". Learned that from listening to you but umm, it shouldn't take that long to umm "go" Gary. I know it can be a cathartic experience filled with relaxation and release but that "slow roll" is a sign of slow digestion. #GreenJuice #MoreFiber #MoreWater #LessOfWhateverIsSlowingItDown #HealthyPooping lol 🙂 Loving the show though!!

  2. scared or nervous about trying to get a sponsorship for The Happiness Stories video series. 🙂 great episode!

  3. Nervous that I may not be the entrepreneur that I want to be in my mind. Just working through being self aware.

  4. Hey Gary! Most nervous about another recession and how that will impact high-end whiskey sales. Glad to see you're feeling better 🙂

  5. What am i most nervous about ?….

    I actually am nervous of my business growing to fast, i constantly ask myself are you going to be able to provide the same level of service to your customers if you get to busy to quickly. Sometimes i wonder if its fear of success ? not sure.

  6. #qotd Gary the thing I worry about the most is an uncontrollable event happening to me that doesn't allow me to provide for my family. My only fear is letting them down.

  7. Gary, second video I've seen by you. Digging the energy in the one. The look you give after the cccp comment is awesome! #fuckyoumissthompsoninhistoryclass
    Great QOTD: I'm going with committing to long term projects when I am unsure of how they will play out, but it's deep enough were it deserves a few days of thought.

  8. Wait what? Americans don't have 'private pooping places?' Surely he must be exaggerating (I am European, never visited the US).

  9. Gary V – man, if you ate a clean vegan lifestyle you would be done pooping in 10-15 seconds… Seriously!!!! 🙂

  10. #qotd. Still get nervous every time I get unexpected phone calls from family and/or friends ever since I received an unexpected phone call from my dad in which he told me my cousin and her son her murdered.

  11. One thing I am really scared of is that all of this hard work will pay off at the time when I will be to old to enjoy the success

  12. #QOTD as a parent of 6 I am most nervous about the health of my kids and deep down that one of them becomes a psychopath despite them being raised well.

  13. hi gary thanks for sharing I will spend one hour and twitt 25 people who I would like to meet I will let you know tanks David Morton sales rep for Love Flowers and Table Designs #LOVEFLOWERSANDTABLEDESIGNS @loveflowersandtable

  14. Hey Gary,

    Finally done watching from afar, it's time to participate.

    #QOTD – You're going to need a little bit of a backstory for this. I've got a plan for the next few years of my life; I'm launching a food/diet blog focused on natural low carb recipes that don't feel or taste like diet foods to help motivate and assist people who are struggling with their weight and health. I want to build on this audience to start a specialty foods company that caters to people who care about the negative effects of sugar and processed foods, and that will go hand in hand with the vision of my blog. One of the toughest parts for these people is finding snacks that are enjoyable to eat, which is a very large market that is lacking in options and quality. I'm most nervous about not having the talent or drive to actually make this happen, and frankly it's terrifying.

    #askgaryvee – So my question to you is, if you were to start from scratch building a loyal audience, what are the first 3 things you would do?

    Thanks for all the priceless content and entertainment, you truly are an inspiration.
    Anthony

  15. Best episode ! Btw look at his face hilarius hahah, the part with fuck you "modern school aducation sistem" history teacher, i watched it like 13x times. Thanks Gary

  16. #QOTDWhat am i most nervous about. Aug. 26th I am throwing a concert at my home church.I have put shows together all around the country.However in 15 years I have never done anything for my people!! Never been more Nervous.. But Seattle better watch out because this show is going to be DOPE!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. I have ownership in two side businesses that are building momentum additional to my "day job" and I most nervous about choosing full-time focus/direction or choosing the best way to leverage time in interest of my family.

  18. So many one-liners from this one! #QOTD Nervous about my plan for my show and my brand failing, which will be a lot of money and time lost, but holy crap so much gained too. Nervous I'm not working hard enough. PS – Now when you respond to people on twitter early in the morning we'll all know what you're doing….

  19. the pooping everyday part puts you ahead of many people. No joke. Although you're overdoing it with your ego.

  20. Hey Gary, I'm very nervous that I will miss the boat and make a mistake in execution. Rule #1 from Vaynernation. I wanna jump, I wanna take the shot and make a swing, take the at bat. Thanks for your time and efforts. I get inspired each time I catch a Gary Vee moment that resonates with my mindset. I can't wait to read the book.  Cheers my brother

  21. Hey Gary, just wanted to add to this video's insight on Yelp advertising.

    The cool thing about yelp, is that its the new yellow pages. People don't always use yelp for its reviews but use it instead of googling, "x business around me"

    the second feature that rocked my world by using yelp is the fact that yelp has some sort of partnership with google which means. They do the SEO dirty work for you.

    When you google " banquet halls in east los Angeles" my banquet hall's yelp page will appear.

    I don't know how to use SEO and I have reaped the benefits of it just because of yelp's advertising.

  22. enjoy watching the hustle, every time I "want" to feel tired I watch you and say to myself "you lazy ass, go do more!"

  23. QOTD: About to start a new job and nervous about overrunning the people I will be working with that may have been there for a while. It is just something that I end up doing without realizing it. I try not to as it has made for problems in the past but it just happens.

  24. Most nervous about moving back to the States after 4 years abroad, where I went back to school to change careers, and finding my feet again. Nervous, but also excited about the new opportunities and experiences that can arise from all this. Thanks Gary! 🙂

  25. #QOTD I guess I most nervous not getting it right the first time. I've got value I'm starting to share online. My media sharing is becoming a form or art to me but I don't want to get caught up too long on ONE piece. I'd like to pump lots of helpful stuff out day after day but I don't want it to be low quality.

  26. What's gonna be the Vayner toilets in your new office like? Private CEO loo? It's a productivity killer by the way when your staff fears about that p thing the whole day …

  27. I am most nervous for my kids future, but, at the same time, that also fuels my fire. We live in a crazy world and I find my focus has narrowed in on my strengths and how I can use them to progress my life and my household. Having a 24/7 ghost mentor like Gary has made it that much easier to focus on setting myself up, and them up, for success in years to come, big picture style. Educating my girls on everything I can and encouraging them to learn and soak up any and every experience has become habitual.

  28. #QOTD: Not being prepared ENOUGH. Sometimes I over prepare just to kill any anxiety I have. I exhaust myself during preparation.

  29. QOTD: I am most nervous about my move from Long Beach, CA to Scottsdale, AZ at the end of the year. Moving away from 99% of my friends and family in order to put myself in a better situation to succeed.

  30. Gary,
    Right out of university I got a corporate job, which is according to society the norm. However, after 10 months I decided to quit (a month ago). The reason I decided to make this move is because I have a vision that will not leave my head and I did not believe I was receiving the proper dosage of personal growth (mentorship). Since then, there has not been a single morning where I woke up with the same mind frame (vision/potential). Therefore, I decided to get a job in the start-up world, but I on a daily basis I have this gut feeling to quit and start creating my own vision. In conclusion, the problem is that I am not in a financial position to do so. With that said, I am most nervous about leaving this start-up job and not being able to pay my bills/rent even though deep down I know I will be successful.

  31. Give us some insight on what Apps you have on your phone and how you deal with all the notifications that come through on a day?

  32. As the owner/inventor/sales force of my company The Odor Army, with my latest designs, I'm only NERVOUS about which platform to devote most of my time to, when it come's to marketing to my particular client base. Nothing beats phone sales of course, but diversifying sales tactics if you will, is the next step in the evolution of my company. I would say that also, I'm nervous a little about setting my company up to bought out from someone directly needing my product, which would free me up to create many more products, inventions, creations. I've got to let this whole "building a legacy with ONE business" go. I don't want one successful product on the market, I want the capital to bring to fruition, any and all idea's my mind comes up with, because being a problem solver, is who I am. I just wish I had spent a little more time learning and understanding structuring of big business, rather than creating and direct sales. I'm learning. Thanks for the awesome content. I will say, I spent a couple of months, watching your video's Gary, getting inspired again, to take action.. Since I began to implement that action, I tend to rarely watch your content.. Nothing personal, I love ya. I'm just too fucking busy. haha Cheers!

  33. Late on the #QOTD but I'm nervous about a face to face with a senior buyer from a mahoosive record company in London – we create framed music presentations… first opportunity to pitch to a biggie in 14 years of what has been a bit of a closed shop… @thegolddisc #golddiscdave – Looking forward to seeing you London 23-03-016 #askgaryvee

  34. I'm nervous about buying my first company vehicle in the next few months. I need to step up to a box truck for hauling PA systems to events and it will be the biggest purchase I've ever made. But I can only afford to buy a used vehicle which comes with another whole layer of risks. 🙁

  35. Hey Gary, and everyone! I'be started a clothing brand for active people seeking more in life. Mainly appealing to entrepreneurs right now. If anyone has any advice or wants to connect hit me up!

  36. Qotd: I'm scared about all these politicians who pander to the masses… and the masses who want to be pandered to. Because I don't want to pay more income taxes.

  37. HAHAHA I don't like to poop in public also. It's soooo funny that this is my first comment EVER on this channel.
    P.S. Best wishes fom México on your book tour.
    THANKS for all the content you SHARE.

  38. Gary I think you contradict yourself when you say "storing information in your brain is just not valuable." You store information in your brain every time you learn about a new app or social platform. Kids store information in their brains when they learn how to solve 2-step algebraic equations. Sure maybe storing who the 6th president was may not be AS valuable, but there are plenty of things kids learn in school that is incredibly valuable and SHOULD be stored in their brain. I wouldn't want to have to google "how to use commas" or "should states be capitalized" or "whom vs. who" every time I wanted to write something, I'd rather just have that information stored in my head. It would be much more efficient that way wouldn't you agree? Same with math, I would rather be able to multiply 9 x 8 instantly in my head rather than have to find my phone, unlock it, open the calculator app, and then type in "9 x 8 =". Storing information in your head saves you an incredible amount of time, and TIME is the asset right? 😉

  39. Gary – Love love love your advice to hit up people on Twitter for coffee and conversations. You've been saying this for years and I've been doing this for years. I've made friends, got jobs and projects, connected with cool people, and learned so much. This is why Twitter will always be one of my favorites. Thanks so much for this invaluable advice, Gary.

  40. #QOTD I'm nervous about not being able to communicate the concepts I have to other people in an easy to understand way that inspires them… don't want my words to be dead water!

  41. Gary – Love how simple you make it. I spent 30 minutes tweeting and thanking restaurants and attractions around Chicago based off your recommendation. Out of the 15, I had 10 tweet back… going to meet a couple owners… and I'm landing a deal with my agency with someone who got involved in the conversation. Now I'm addicted. Thanks!

  42. #QOTD I'm graduating in May, married in June and moving to Austin Texas right away for an adventure away from Virginia. People know me as the confident and optimistic guy, but I'm deathly nervous about having to provide for another person now and not being able to take the risks I'm used to being able to take. We are both looking for jobs there and she totally believes in me but for the first time in my life I'm having the urge to make mediocre moves to find security

  43. I am nervous about whether I am good enough to graduate university although I am getting good grades in all my assignments so far. I am also nervous about if I am bringing value to every situation or creative process.

  44. Please make a short version of this where he says "Twitter is so special." I would tweet the crap out of it. For some reason there is a decline in buy-in on why Twitter is a great networking tool in and of itself.

  45. Nervous about nothing currently. And I believe another way of phrasing the Yelp convo. Asymmetrical risk vs reward.

  46. INSANELY solid advice on hitting people up on Twitter. I did that 3 years ago and it literally changed my life with the meetings I got out of that.

  47. #QOTD
    So far not many of my friends or family members know about my Makeup and Beauty YouTube Channel and other social medias. Right now i'm most nervous about telling them. I know you say to tell them and let them share it. To use them to market you but I want to make sure I have the talent for it first. Another thing I learned from you, If I have the talent enough that people want to watch me than my audience will grow. So far its been growing but not at the point where I want to tell them yet.

  48. Using your Twiitter reach out networking idea, I sent out 50 or so requests in my local area to see what responses I get. I'll let you know how that pans out.

  49. right there with you Gary! In the morning, every morning, 15-25 mins, never in public places. 😛

  50. I know this is an old vid… I've built 90% of my clients with Twitter. tweeting and following them. thanks!

  51. I am MOST nervous about not living to see my children grow up (my mother passed when I was 12) a little dark but it's truth…

  52. I knew there was a really good reason as to why I like Gary Vaynerchuck.

    I completely agree. I like pooping for long times. I dislike pooping in public. Pooping during the middle of the day, slows your WHOLE day.

    Spoken like a true wise man.

  53. Is it too late to ask for a signed copy of the #AskGaryVee book all the way across the waters in South Africa? https://www.facebook.com/andreprinsIN/

  54. @garyvee Thanks for the honesty with the 💩 + 📱! That's exactly where I consume the #askgaryvee show! Everyday! Sometimes I get to consume 2 shows! 😏😮😉

    New t-shirt…
    @garyvee is #ProPrivatePoopingPlaces

  55. #QOTD: my wife has to leave the country for visa reasons and I don't know when she will return. I'm nervous about how I will be once she is gone.

  56. #QOTD : At this exact moment I am nervous that when the opportunity (whatever situation) arises I will not take the leap.
    #TASK : This is going to be a blast and can not wait to see the results
