A few days ago, I replied to a Facebook post from Gary Vaynerchuk saying that he was interested in doing a short 15 minute interview. Yesterday, my wish was granted and today I Skyped with Gary and asked him a few questions on business and motivation.
Skyping was a bizarre experience for me. Back in 2008, when I was just a little intern, I stumbled on a keynote speech from Gary Vaynerchuk (I enjoyed that Keynote so much I worked in a reference to it in my book). I remember thinking, “No one talks like this” and “That was amazing.” From there I became a regular viewer of his wine show despite having a pathetic pallet, watched him grow from 20,000 followers on Twitter to over 900,000, and publish two best selling books. So Skyping with Gary was a little bit like when actors in cheesy 90s sitcoms like Saved By The Bell broke the fourth wall and talked directly to the camera. After watching dozens of interviews with Gary over the past 4 years, I didn’t expect to be Skyping with him, but am happy I got a chance to talk with him.
