Heart, Hustle, and Soul
Gary Vaynerchuk has become the standard bearer for hustling. He is a showman without a doubt, but the fuel for Gary’s rocket ride to becoming one of the most iconic online persona’s today is the value he consistently provides with his content and the integrity with which he has built his brand.
Gary seems heartfelt in wanting every single person he touches to break free from the soul-sucking trap of the rat race. He implores people to take definitive and immediate action in pursuit of their own entrepreneurial dreams.
Not only does Gary want to see people win but he provides impactful content on a daily basis, for free, to ensure people can and will win. He is prolific with his output of content but never to the detriment of quality. Gary’s pieces are always compelling and packed with actionable advice.
Gary’s ethos is gritty and blue collar, a street sense earned in the real world, while his business acumen is sharp enough to command respect in any boardroom setting. He is a serial entrepreneur and the CEO and co-founder of VaynerMedia, which is a full-service digital agency servicing Fortune 500 clients.
His videos are inspiring, educational, and at times frank to the point where it feels like a painful dose of medicinal reality.
While I suggest delving into all his long-form keynote speeches or episodes of The Ask Gary Vee Show, his quick hitting videos are the perfect way to become indoctrinated with his mission.
Some of Gary’s most hard-hitting videos are brief, selfie-style pieces. He often gets lost in a stream of conscious flow with the messaging pouring straight from his soul.

Integrity Over Persona
The internet is filled with personalities pedaling their baller lifestyles through online courses. They promise you the glory of fame and riches if you just pay for their seminar and follow their lead.

Gary Vaynerchuk puts the secret sauce out there for anyone and everyone to take it and run with it. The question is, will you embody his mountainous catalog of wisdom and inspiration and apply it towards your own dreams? I have no doubt that Gary genuinely hopes you do.
