EP 54 - Gary Vaynerchuk
Today on the Pretty Intense Podcast we are talking to the one, the only, Gary Vaynerchuk. Gary is the American dream. He came to America from Russia as a child, and with the hard work ethics instilled in him by his mother, he first grew the family business to a huge success, followed by creating the Gary V brand. His style of speaking is unmistakably Gary V. He has a wonderful loyalty quality that he got from growing up in a family business. Team, team support. This has made him probably the best boss to work for in the world. Look into the mind of someone who came from nothing, worked hard, made almost all his dreams come true, and wants nothing more than to help others do the same. Gary’s life ambition is to buy the New York Jets. After listening to this podcast, we think that you will believe as we do that he will do just that. Please enjoy our talk with Gary Vaynerchuk.
