Ep. 6: SUCCESS Chat With Gary Vaynerchuk



Gary Vaynerchuk opens up to host Shelby Skrhak about his public persona vs. his private one, and why self-awareness is essential for both. The author of Crush It and his new book, #AskGaryVee, gives the surprising reason why entrepreneurship isn’t the right path for everyone, and shares how he keeps himself and his team motivated and successful. Plus Gary answers SUCCESS Insider listener questions in #AskGaryVee style.


  • Gary Vee talks emotional intelligence and the importance of telling it like it is.
  • What does it mean to be self-aware? Do you have it? Plus, Josh gives a recap of Vaynerchuk being real at SXSW.
  • Vaynerchuk gives an inside look into his new book, #AskGaryVee and why not everyone can be an entrepreneur.
  • Reader question: If you had to start Vaynermedia from scratch, what would you do differently?


Favorite quote from this episode:

“As a CEO that is in charge of 650 employees, I try to focus on, just trying to understand what somebody is good at and what they like. [I] try to find that cross-section and then try to deploy them, if possible, in that arena.”
