When I discovered Gary Vaynerchuck’s 2011 Inc 500 keynote speech about marketing, I fell in love with the guy.
Author of The Thank-You Economy and other books, Gary spent the first chunk of his life selling wine online. Then he focused on marketing and social media exclusively, starting his own consulting company, VaynerMedia.
Gary’s wit and brashness as a speaker entertain me, but his cutting insights about media and advertising keep me coming back. For anyone in the business of promoting themselves and their work—and that includes every single self-directed learner—Gary holds valuable lessons.
