Gary Vaynerchuk: Pivots, Gratitude, And The Execution of Big Ideas

Gary Vaynerchuk

A real pleasure to welcome Gary Vaynerchuk to Intrepid Radio! Gary is a best-selling author, speaker, and co-founder and CEO of Vaynermedia.

Today’s show notes:

1. The importance of building a business and life foundation around gratitude.
2. The reasons to make a major life pivot, even though what you’ve been doing is working.
3. “To get permission to be a commentator and be a recognized voice, you must actually do something. You can’t just talk…”
4. How to overcome the fear that holds too many people back from making meaningful pivots in their life.
5. “The people that are most fearful, are the ones who are the most practical…”
6. “Don’t fall in love with just one or two ideas….”
7. The importance of reverse engineering.
8. You have to come up with lots of ideas, knowing that ultimately you will execute on just a few of them…and know going in that it is hard work to execute on that idea.
9. “Being good at running business and executing ideas is a talent, no different than hitting a 100 mph fastball. And you’ve got to put in the time…”
10. The business and life value of family, and what that can mean to you.
11. Finally, a teaser on his next book!

    Great interview, especially like the conversation around point #3, lots of non-experts are getting into the space but I do believe the cream will rise to the top eventually. Love Gary, awesome stuff!
