Before we get rolling into what I believe is going to be hone of the best coffee chats we’ve ever had here on Entrepreneurs and Coffee, the action show, I want to remind you that you have one more day to enter our Seth Godin book giveaway. Seth’s latest book, Your Turn, is truly one of his best and you can get your copy at brendanhufford.com/seth. Again, that’s brendanhufford.com/seth.
So what the hell do I even say to get today’s episode underway. I feel like the intro for this episode is the 31 preceding episodes. I talked about our guest today, Gary Vaynerchuk, in a few of my Q&A episodes and I mention him constantly.
If you aren’t familiar with Gary, he grew his wine business, Wine Library, from $3mil in revenue to over $60mil in the late 90s because he was one of the first people to go all-in with ecommerce. Then, he saw the power of Twitter and YouTube and created Wine Library TV in 2006. He’s an angel investor and author. In fact, he wrote one of the most influential books of my entire life, Crush It, and the free content he’s put online, especially in the last year, has been monumental.
In 2009, he co-founded Vaynermedia which has grown into a nationwide 400 person company that helped fortune 500 companies market online and use social channels the way they’re meant to be used.
Gary is grabbing coffee with us today while on vacation so there might be some background noise and whatnot but I’m 5000% sure that our chat will be worth listening to.
Today, I’ll be asking him about entrepreneurial DNA, creating a successful marriage as an entrepreneur, his new focus on his health and if you’re a regular listener, you know that I teased at launching a product a while back, and I haven’t mentioned it since. I’ll be giving you more details about why I’ve kinda gone silent on it and I expect Gary will have some unique perspectives on it as well.
Go pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee and let’s sit down with our guest today on the Entrepreneurs and Coffee podcast, Gary Vaynerchuk.
