Gary Vaynerchuk – Hustle

Ready to watch this Video?

To get access to this exclusive episode, you need to log in with a social media account.

Get any group of ten or more young entrepreneurs together anywhere in the world, and you will inevitably hear the name Gary Vaynerchuk.

You might know him from his wine videos, his vlogs, his stage appearances, or you might have taken a selfie with him at a flash mob.

However you know Gary, his name is constantly uttered alongside the word “hustle”.

Rarely agreeing to do one-on-one interviews, It was a privilege to sit down with Gary and really unwrap the truth and power behind some of the sound bites and one-liners he is known for.

Gary tells me his business is “daytrading attention”.

In world increasingly subsumed in instantaneous messages, Instagram photos and often shallow sloganeering, Gary is expert at commanding the attention of young people already bombarded with self-help cliches and materialistic images.

What’s even more fascinating is that he not only grabs the attention of social media savvy young hustlers across the globe, he actually touches them and changes their lives.

One of my big takeaways from this conversation is the way Gary broke down his message.

Gary is the quintessential fast-talking New Yorker, and some can be put off by the intense, “live-for-the-grind” cockiness that has got him where he is today.

But Gary’s message seems to fly in the face of the very culture he is so adept at commanding.

It comes down to this: “Be patient, work hard and stop complaining”.

In a world of greedy gratification and overstimulation, convincing millennials to get over themselves and play the long game for the sake of their dreams, is quite honestly revolutionary.

Gary is this weird mix of humble and confident. He knows the game, and knows he is good at it. But he also prides himself on being a good listener.

It is easy to watch Gary’s YouTube videos, hear the slick, well-crafted, firecracker wisdom and think this guy is all about the talk.

Watching this conversation you meet a nuanced, multidimensional Gary Vee, far more than the image of the media phenomenon.

When people write comments like ‘great interview, fantastic, brilliant’ ….. I wished they would be more specific and highlight what exactly they appreciated the most from an episode! I would like to mention the 7 things that I personally enjoyed and remember from this interview: 1) I love the intonation when Gary speaks. It makes certain messages stick and sounds spontaneous, convincing, natural. 2) VALUE is the game. Give 51 %. 3) When you are being invited to an interview ask yourself “What value can I bring to the audience (and not how can I promote my products/services). If people… Read more »

Seriously? I have never watched anyone because I think they are all full of shit, selling an illusion, I found London Real about a year ago, absolutely a stand up guy and great interviewer! Gary V I found about six months ago, and I have nothing but respect for these two men! Because if you knew the history, neither of them do this because they had to! They were way past “all good” without the internet. Keep up the great work guys, thank you!

Powerful stuff. The emphasis of patience struck me.

Living in 2016, I feel pressured to hurry up and get where I want to get now that I have the right mindset. Having patience in this illusion of accelerated time, due to having so much come in as a consequence of living in the information age is something I struggle with. Gary’s perspective definitely helped me chill out right away, and it felt good ( :

Just another WOW moment. Thank you, Brian Rose.

I was waiting to see Gary on your show. You both did not dissapoint. Gary is my mentor, I’ve been loving his work and content for a while now. I was expecting greatness and I received greatness 😉 But I also have to say, that I loved how you built an interaction with him in this interview. Sometimes in your interviews you appear a bit distant (sometimes!), but here you were 100% in. You resonated with him. I could almost feel the flow of energy between you guys 🙂 Loved it.

Well, I was certainly guilty of holding preconceived ideas about Gary. Prior to watching this, I held him as a Tony Robbins clone (based purely on assumption, rather than evidence, of course…) My bad and my loss for not actually tuning in sooner to his message. Very thought provoking episode. Many thanks.
