Happiness and Fulfillment Over Cars and Houses
A few weeks ago I sat down with my friend Matt D’Avella to discuss the concept of minimalism and how it applies to some of my core principles. Pay attention to the concepts we discuss as this conversation is a deeper look into the foundation of my mindset that I think is driving a lot of my happiness. 1:02 - Intro to minimalism 5:23 - It’s so important to enjoy what you do 10:35 - There is no right, there’s only right for you 15:40 - There’s millions of American’s interested in entrepreneurship that don’t k...

Dwelling On Your Weaknesses Won’t Help You Win
In this podcast episode we’ve mashed together the audio from 3 videos that absolutely crushed on YouTube. If my content motivates one person to make a change or follow pursue their passion or whatever it is that you need, I’m extremely happy. Pay close attention to the themes focussed on during this 19 minute motivational mashup. :43 - You have to audit who you are 6:35 - Don’t let other people’s opinion dictate your life 10:03 - Execution takes time Please please please share your feedback with us. Tweet m...


Discussing the Evolution of Hip-Hop Music With Juicy J
In this podcast I sit down with artist Juicy J to discuss the how the music industry has evolved. As technology advance, the ability to consume content continues to progress as new streaming services arise. More and more control is being taken from the distributors and traditional middlemen of music, and being put into the hands of the artists themselves. 3:20 - The artists make the labels, not the other way around 8:20 - When you pop, do you have a second move? 14:45 - Traditional promotion has changed 21 ...

The 79/21 Rule to Build a Long Term Business
Throughout my whole career I've always been prepared for the next thing. My 79/21 theory came from a conversation on how to prepare for the future and strategic ways to allocate your energy. In my opinion, there's more than enough hours in the day to taste everything. Really pay attention to the questions asked and my answers in this podcast episode. :30 - Intro to the 79/21 rule 2:45 - What if something pops tomorrow? 4:50 - Instagram vs LinkedIn Did you like this episode? Any feedback is appreciated - twe...

My Early Days of Creating Content #TBT With Wine Library TV 12 Years Ago
Man I miss the Wine Library days! Those of you who saw me on livestream last night know that my Rosé ships out this week and that this is a really exciting time for me. I’m so appreciative for everyone that has supported my Empathy Wines venture, something I’ve been dreaming of doing for a long long time. Today’s podcast is a throwback to my Wine Library TV days. I spend the next 20 minutes tasting and critiquing wines while answering questions from the audience. 2:00 - I’m a social guy! 4:50 - This wine sm...


7 Minutes That Can Help Scale Any Business
Why does everyone think trust is earned? To me, that process seems slow and egotistical. I believe that if you give your employees trust in the upfront, you’ll be blown away by the results. In this podcast I focus on how CEOs can empower their team’s to facilitate scale, as well as the benefits of having a meaningful relationship with each of your employees. :30 - why I trust my employees 3:40 - how a new hire can win 5:25 - you’re employees shouldn’t care as much as you do What was your biggest takeaway fr...

The Four People Every Startup Needs
People overthink their businesses - who they hire, how they market and what they spend their money on. If you're a start-up, I firmly believe you can make real noise with a small, scrappy team of three or four people. You just have to know what you need. Regardless of your industry, documenting the journey is the best way to show potential customers who you are and what you do. The following 8 minutes is a few different conversations with start-ups I'm working with. What was your biggest takeaway from this?...

How To Make Every Penny Work Like a Dollar
A lot of companies are going to go out of business over the next decade for one main reason: Humans don’t like change. If you’re plan to be in business for the long term and you’re holding “what worked” in the past on a pedestal, I really hope this podcast changes the way you look at things. This is a keynote I gave in Vegas at the International Franchise Association on Facebook and Instagram marketing in 2019, the rise of voice and machine learning, and more. 3:20 - I've always been chasing the attention o...


How To Crush It In 2019
Entrepreneurship today really needs to be more grounded in practicality. Really implore you all to either start saving cash or invest your cash back into your business — the economy isn’t going to be good forever, and when things get slow, people aren’t going to talk about things like “passive income” the same way they do today. 0:00 - I worked 18 hours a day for 15 years 5:03 - Passive income needs practicality 15:55 - Changing your perspective on life 22:05 - How to prepare for the coming economic collaps...

How To Start: A Guide To Overcoming Fear
I’m so desperate to to get you all to the point where you’re executing on your ambitions.

What To Do If You Don't Want To Go To College
If you’re 25, you could literally die and live an entirely new life up to this point, and you’d still barely be at “halftime.” That’s why I tell so many 18, 22, 25, and 30 year olds to just put their head down and grind for a decade - if they have the ambition to build something for the rest of their lives. In this podcast with Pencils of Promise founder Adam Braun, I talk more about what to do if you don’t want to go to college, what to do after high school, and more. 1:49 - advice on what to do after high...

112 Minutes of My Community Thanking Their Community
A few weeks ago, I put up an Instagram post where I asked people to make a video thanking people for following them. This podcast is a 112 minute compilation of those who saw my post and made a “thank you” video of their own. Hope this video inspires you all to keep perspective and stay grateful today!! 7:02 - Thank you for supporting me on this journey called life 13:42 - I hope you're motivated to do something for yourself 25:32 - Shout out to everyone trying to get better Hit me up on Twitter @GaryVee an...

Why You Need to Start Storytelling Today
There’s so much opportunity available today but what most people don’t realize is, this all goes away. Eventually, Facebook and Instagram advertising will become like the Yellow Pages or billboards — that’s why I’m trying to get so many of you to “squeeze” while this opportunity is still available to you. In this podcast, I talk about some tactics and strategies you can use to storytelling around your brand 0:30 - The internet is the single most underrated thing in society 1:30 - How to scale your local bus...


How Having “Less” Can Make You Happier : From My Inbox To Your Ears Episode 1
I am starting a new series on the podcast - From My Inbox To Your Ears - where I will be sharing stories of people who have executed on the advice that I have been sharing for free through the years. In the first episode, I share a real-life story of being happier when you make less than what you made in a 9-5 job that you hate, only because you decide to follow your passion and start loving what you do.  Tweet @garyvee and let me know your thoughts on this series....

Should You Really Be an Entrepreneur?
It doesn’t actually matter to me whether you want to work 18 hours a day for the rest of your life, live on the beach, or watch Netflix all day. I’m just putting pressure to get people’s actions to map to their ambitions. Hope this episode helps a few of you figure out who you are, your strengths and weaknesses, and gives you a better sense of what you want to do. Tweet me what you thought of this format @GaryVee...

The Real Reason Why Most People Aren’t Patient
It’s very rare that someone comes to me with an idea or a project and I really think it’s going to work. Sometimes, I’ll respond to a 27 or 28-year-old kid and tell them it’s going to “work” if they stick with it for 7 or 8 years, and they’re disappointed — because they think “34” is old. I address it in this podcast - really hope this breaks through to a few of you. Tweet me what you thought @GaryVee...


Stop Living For The Weekend
If you hate your Monday through Friday, you’re in big trouble. I really want to put pressure on this conversation — I see so many people today living for the weekend and cheering for Friday because it’s a “relief” from their week. Don’t get it twisted — I love family time and I’m not saying to not spend time with people you care about, but if you’re using the weekend as an “escape” from your week, you need to figure out an alternative. Hope this podcast helps put this in perspective for a few of you :) L...

3 Unconventional Strategies to Grow Small Businesses In 2019
A lot of entrepreneurs and marketers miss the point when it comes to influencer marketing … It’s not about who has the most followers or who’s “verified.” It’s about who has the attention of the people you’re trying to reach. The truth is, many micro-influencers with 1,000 - 4000 followers will produce better business results for a company than a verified account with 300,000 followers because they have more “depth.”  I talk more about this and other strategies small businesses can use to grow sales in 2019...

$1.80 Strategy for LinkedIn
I really believe that 2019 is the year of LinkedIn. If you’re in B2B, it’s the single most important platform you need to be spending your time on. This podcast is from a Q&A I did with business owners, many of whom are selling to other businesses. I talk about how the $1.80 Instagram strategy can apply to LinkedIn, how the platform has changed over the past few years, and more. 1:50 - How to apply the $1.80 strategy on LinkedIn 8:22 - Quality content is subjective to the consumer 12:17 - Creative ways to m...

My Thoughts on How to Be a Better Leader
This podcast mashup is about something that I am most passionate about and I also think a lot about. It's a constant challenge to create a wonderful work environment without creating entitlement and keep people fired up to work for you.  If you or someone around you is struggling with transitioning from being a practitioner to becoming a leader, please listen to this or share this with that person.  Would love to know your thoughts on this, so tweet @garyvee and let me know your POV....

How Practicality Leads To Happiness
A lot of people are in jobs they don’t like because they tie themselves down with expenses that don’t actually make them happy. It’s an issue for so many … the truth is, a lot of people would rather “look the part” and posture to their friends like they’re building a business instead of doing “unsexy” things that’ll make them money and bring them closer to leaving jobs they don’t like. 0:25 - If you work somewhere but want your own business 1:09 - Don’t buy dumb shit 2:22 - Practicality = happiness 4:40 - W...


My Definition of Giving
Loved this conversation with Joshua Coombes around how I think about Giving in a 2019 world, especially in the non-profit world. I wrote Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook to explain this side of marketing, because most people that are offering to give, are really trying to take and most are not even aware of the vulnerability of their behavior. Let me know your thoughts & your favorite moment from this podcast by tweeting @garyvee. ;) xoxo...

My POV on how business will change over the next few decades: 4Ds London
This podcast is from a 4Ds session I gave in London — many of you have been asking me for more tactical, business-focused content and this format is a really good way for me to provide that for you all. You’ll get to hear my thoughts on voice, why I think brand will be the only thing left, diversifying across platforms, why companies like 7-eleven are in deep trouble over the next few decades and more. 1:45 - Timing is just as important as being right 4:20 - Why convenience vs brand matters so much in a voi...

Tasting Cat Wine and Clamdy Canes
A lot of people don’t know this about me, but almost nothing makes me squeamish. In this podcast, I sit down with Mark Cersosimo and answer some fun questions about whether I’d buy the Jets today (if that meant wearing Jordans every day for the rest of my life), whether I prefer toilet paper “over” or “under”, how many pigeons I think I could carry, and more. And I do it while eating some really weird food and drinking “cat wine.” This interview shows a different side of me that many of you may not have see...

16 Minutes of Discussing The Future of Hip Hop: Meeting With Dreezy
The music industry isn’t what it used to be. Years ago, you had to impress a handful of executives and pray that they liked your music — and if they didn’t, your career would never launch. Now, you’ve got all these artists getting popular off of Soundcloud, Spotify, YouTube, and creating content on social media. In this podcast, I talk with Dreezy — a rapper I really believe in — about the future of hip hop, and why I’m hanging out with rap artists as a CEO. What up-and-coming artists do you think should be...

The ROI of Working For Free: #AskGaryVee 303 With Eugene Remm

And he did it by leveraging something I really believe in: doing free work for people who he admired. Lots of great insights in this episode that you guys will enjoy — especially if you’re getting started in your career. Question of the day: What’s the one business th...


Interns Become CEOs All the Time: Meeting "Freeway" Rick Ross | DailyVee 535
Lots of little clips from different meetings and events in today’s podcast … You’ll hear what went down at our little influencer meet up at Made in New York Pizza (where I’m an investor).   I also met with a young kid who needed to “get his mind rewired” — I talked to him about overcoming the same pressures that so many young people face with “figuring out” their lives.   The podcast starts off with my meeting with “Freeway” Rick Ross — a former drug dealer who’s now helping at-risk youth and women’s empowe...

How to Win by Playing the Game in "Reverse"
The reason I win so much is that I play the game in “reverse” of everyone else. Everyone else is doing the same thing — posting the same type of pictures on Instagram, getting the same degrees from the same colleges, or running the same type of Ads — and wondering why they’re not disproportionately winning. I expand on this concept more in this Q&A I did with fans at the GaryVee x VaynerSports meet and greet in Atlanta. Tons of value in this one - especially if you’re looking to level up your personal brand...

How to drop a rap album in 2019 — Meeting with Lil’ Keed

Listen, and tweet me what you thought @GaryVee!...
