• Take social media seriously, or remove yourself from the game.
  • No marketing fixes a shoddy product.

  • The first rule about content marketing is you have to actually generate content.

When Gary Vaynerchuk opens his mouth, the energy in the room vibrates at a higher frequency. One sentence, and you’re with him ’til the end, wondering if they have a size above venti at Starbucks that would lift you to his level of zeal.

The bestselling author, internet personality and entrepreneur immigrated to New Jersey in 1978 without speaking a lick of English. Since then, he’s created a digital empire that involves vlogging, social media domination and, of course, wine.

Uplifting but down to earth, his messages drip with a grassroots authenticity that can only be delivered by someone bursting with passion. His insights translate to anyone in the real estate industry who’s a planner, a ponderer, a hard worker, a dreamer with stars in their eyes.

In this video, Gary Vee gets real about making it in the digital revolution, when it’s time to get your hands dirty and preserving those romanticized goals that keep you from giving up on the grind.
