• Learn How to Build a Powerful Personal Brand That Will Differentiate You and Allow You To Compete in the Global Marketplace.
  • Personal Branding Video | Gary Vaynerchuk

    I love this video clip where Gary Vaynerchuk shares how you can crush it through building your personal brand and equity in yourself. It was filmed in November of 2008, but it’s still as relevant as ever — it’s a must watch video if you want to gain some insight on how to get ahead of the pack in your niche.

    Here are some takeaways you can apply to building your personal brand:

    • Patience and passion are personal branding virtues.
    • Stop doing stuff you hate – you can lose just as much money being happy as hell.
    • Become part of a community/tribe and really, really care about them.
    • Find out what you want to do every day for the rest of your life and do that – you can find a way to monetize it.
    • You have to hustle and want it more than everyone else – you need to work hard.
    • You need a business model so you can make some cash along the way.
    • Legacy is greater than currency – but you have to create it.
    • We live in a world where the gatekeepers are losing control.
    • 2351971257_6313b65346If you’re pumping out good content – people will follow you.
    • If you don’t believe in what you’re doing, whether it’s your personal brand, or the product you represent – you need to get out now.
    • Everyone is going to be consuming content everywhere.
    • It’s about brand equity in yourself.
    • Get out and network – people are the people who will help you.
    • Use the tools — connect to your user base anyway you can, everywhere you can, as often as you can.
    • Niches can go crazy – find a niche you love.
    • Time is not an excuse. If you really want it, 7 o’clock at night, to 2 in the morning is plenty of time to do damage.

      This is one of the most influential talks I’ve ever seen. We founded Under30CEO.com after we saw this live.

      There is money to be made inspiring people to create a better life for themselves.

      Hi everyone! I love all the energy here and thanks for the great comments!

      I wanted to post this video because I think it’s one of the truest, from the heart presentations that I’ve heard in a long time. It’s rare to watch somebody give a presentation and leave the room feeling inspired — it’s even rarer to know the person has paved their own path themselves. Gary Vaynerchuk brings both of those aspects to the game — make sure to check out his soon to be released book Crush It, which I’m sure will be awesome!

      Thanks for your comments, keep dropping by every Saturday and please share my posts with your social networks — I truly appreciate it!!!!!!!

      I FREAKING love Gary! He has been key in me getting the fire under my @$$ to do what I’m passionate about! I’m in the ZONE because of his words! I have gained more knowledge of powerful platforms out there in the last 2 weeks than in the entire time I’ve been online on FB and Myspace.

      I am grateful for his willingness to share. There’s so much to go around!

      The sad truth is that the average person lacks “follow through”. Too bad for them because I’m CRUSHING IT! 🙂
