Gary Vaynerchuk: The Social Media King


Hello my beautiful readers,

How are you all this beautiful day?

For today I wanted to officially kick of my new series for this blog. The series will be called ‘People Who Inspire Me’, that’s what I’m going to call the series for now but I’m thinking I might change the name down the road to something else. My main goal of this series is to once a month introduce to you all someone who has inspired and changed my life in hopes that you to can get inspired and motivated by them.

To kick this new series of the first person I’ve chosen to feature is the king of social media Gary Vaynerchuk.

I first discovered Gary a few months back and he has honestly changed my life so much since then. I am so grateful for the invaluable advice and lessons he has taught me, he’s someone who has really helped me understand social media marketing and business so much more clearly now. I actually took a few business courses online before I found Gary’s Youtube channel and I can tell you right now I absolutely hated them. I learnt more from watching one of Gary’s 20 minute videos then I ever learnt in a 3 day course.

I really recommend to anyone whose considering taking a business course to first go and watch Gary’s videos and read his books before spending money on a course. Personally I think you’ll learn a ton of amazing advice from him since he has been running businesses for years now so he has a lot of experience and knowledge on the subject.

This book is actually one of his new releases, it just came out today. Even though I haven’t yet read it yet I have no doubt that it’ll be just as amazing as his previous books. A little of what you can expect to read about in this book is marketing, entrepreneurship, and management. He also talks about complex issues that affect everyone in the workforce, from the value of a traditional education to the best investment strategies. Gary also shares a lot of his personal stories and lessons he’s learnt from years of working in a family business, raising children and getting healthy.

The episodes are always filled with so much priceless and valuable advice and tips, you should definitely check out this show!!! You will not regret it!!


DailyVee is a vlog series Gary started at the end of last year where he gives us a behind the scenes look at what his life looks like in a day. It’s a great series to watch if you want to get some insight into what his life is like as an entrepreneur and see just how hard he works.

I really hope you enjoyed this post!! I had so much fun writing it for you all and I hope Gary inspires you just as much as he’s inspired me. I’ll talk to you all in my next post.
