  1. I'm watching this in 2019 I Love it thanks for all the tips! I stop doubting my self this year I am 25 a single dad and had some hard times NOW

    I am following my dream alongside my work, I am not the best at making art but it's my dream. Thank you @GaryVee I live in the Netherlands. #CaryVee

  2. Hey Gary Vee! I’ve been pouring your content in my brain for the last couple months in every way I can. I’m driving my kid to school and listening to this episode & I had to comment here bc you mentioned here (16:17) about ppl not liking you bc of your ego and language. I instantly thought of my wife bc she isn’t a fan since I showed her episode 2 of #TrashTalk (lovin that hustle btw, can’t wait for the next episode!). Anywho, just wanted to give a shoutout to ya my man. Love what ur doin✊✊✊

  3. Great episode, great advice on being yourself, I also like to point another reason to be yourself: If you are not yourself, and you do "get the job" or "goes well" etc, are you going to actually be able to deliver later on? ex. they may think you to be a good type of person, you will be good for opportunity, but since you were not real then you are also really not good for the opportunity.

  4. QOTD: My cousin Amber just passed her BAR (1st try) in Nov 2017, so I got to ask her how she likes it earlier this week. Pretty cool to see a family member I've looked up to as a child go after her dream & crush it ♡

    Esp cuz I have zero patience to study laws

  5. By watching your show I would assume that the viewers feel that they have the competitive edge on their rivals who dont watch the show purely down to the value. So why would they want to share it ? You would share it because you think you are better and will win in the long run anyway. But not everyone is as good as you yet – Maybe they need more shows !

  6. Your advice charges my core. The thing is I always knew I will succeed, and listening to somebody who’s had the same belief is an affirmation in on itself. What I learned in 2017 is that change is as easy as much as we believe it to be. The thing is, that teaching along lead me to think, what if all other things were as easy as we believed them to be, and that thought spread like a virus in my mind, and the thing is, it has completely changed my attitude to becoming the exact version of my hustler self that I always wanted to be. You are changing lives Gary, and if anything, I am so grateful for you!

  7. Really the creative part resonated with me! Thanks for that, even if its just a little it helps to also think more about the business side of my artwork and putting that in mind when talking to clients and making deals.

  8. Yep, the cursing (at people) did dampen my enthusiasm, particularly as a Brit. But after awhile I got a better understanding and so couple of years later I'm still here. The value I'm getting prompted me to buy one of your books and I'm eyeing up one of the others.
    Yes, I know I'm commenting on an old post but I'm working thru them sequentially, cos I didn't watch them all first go round. If your new here, please watch a few dozen episodes and I know you'll get a ton of useful and free info… then pay it back 🙂
