What unique qualities propel individuals to the most influential and legacy-creating levels of success? What does genius mean in business today, and how has it evolved over time?
Gary Vaynerchuk builds businesses. Fresh out of college he took his family wine business and grew it from a $3M to a $60M business in just five years. Now he runs VaynerMedia, one of the world’s hottest digital agencies. Along the way Gary became a prolific angel investor and venture capitalist, investing in companies including Facebook and Uber before eventually co-founding VaynerRSE, a $25M investment fund. Gary also hosts The #AskGaryVee Show, providing his 2 million-plus social media fans as much value as possible by answering their questions about social media and entrepreneurship, based on a lifetime of building successful, multi-million dollar companies.
In this talk, Gary speaks with Bloomberg Television anchor and managing editor Stephanie Ruhle about how he got his start and what inspires him to continue working 17-hour days even with all the success he's already achieved. Gary explains how social media will continue to be a powerful force in business and communications and why you'd better start learning to use Snapchat. They also discuss personal qualities that can drive success, what genius means in business today and his new book #AskGaryVee, which offers his most in-depth and actionable advice on how to excel in business and in life.
