GARY VAYNERCHUK – Self-Awareness: When you know who you are, everything changes #047

Gary Vaynerchuk believes self-awareness is a critical component to success. But what does in mean to be aware of self?

Gary started off trading baseball cards, sold wine for his father’s business, started a Youtube channel called Wine Library for said Father’s brand and then turned it into a $60 Million phenomenon. Then he launched a media company, invested in a bunch of startups and co-launched a $25 Million VC seed fund.

In his book, #AskGaryVee, Gary states the only chapter that should be read twice is chapter 17 – Self-awareness.

On this show, we talk about family and the impact of being self-aware.

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Why Gary doesn’t communicate with his family when he travels
  • Gary knows this lifestyle isn’t sustainable for his children
  • Teaching there’s winners and losers
  • Being kind to every person no matter who they are and what they do
  • Building enormous amounts of self confidence in my kids
  • Gratitude, empathy, and self awareness are the billion dollar coconut water idea
  • When you know who you are, everything changes
  • Knowing and accepting who you are
  • Working really hard does not include mismanaging your personal relationships
  • The wartime general you want around you when times are difficult
  • and more!
