  1. Hi Everyone,

    We've noticed there has been an increase in the number of scammers and fake accounts impersonating GaryVee in the comments of our videos recently. Most of these scams are related to cryptocurrency and will ask you to message a number. Please look for the verification mark when reading and replying to any comments that look like they are from Gary. Also, any comment from Gary will clearly state "x replies from GaryVee and others" when it comes from his official account.

    Thank you and be safe!

    – Team GaryVee

  2. You asked for comments so here is mine.
    I find your video inspirational, when I feel low emotionally I listen to your video and I try to come out of with a positive state of mind. This one for instance reminded me to write on my board that if thousands of people have done it why can't I?
    Thanks for your work, your content is worth every minute.


  4. I love it! Serious this type of series because I’ve done this during the last 10 years of difficult times waiting for the rigor answer to start to do things on the right time! Just because I set up an idea in My head that I could only start a business in the perfect moment to enjoy a better time and earn more money but then my sister always Kept telling me that I needed to do something but, i dont know why, i could hear her but not internalize the answer for it so took me a lot of time until i found a coach on the web that helped me get Back on track and start executing, I can tell it worked! Last year on Christmas I was unemployed sent 25 resumés per day and on january 7th, one day Becker my birthday, I was hired. Then the pandemic started and I have to work to pay my bills so I spent a few weeks to come with some plan then I started to tell the world I was going to teach English and a friend told a friend and things start to happen!
    So Now, I created my own company, only me só far, to teach English and then I Will be executing my ideas with a lot of emotions corrected with a new and positive mindset boy You! I have seen a lot of your vídeos, i dont know how much I could help you around here but in some way, working with independence, I could and I Will like I have done so far! But you’ve had something that Works against you which is the lack of knowledge and mostly curious about the English language, a lot of people dont speak around here so in order tô make them understand you I believe I could do something to help you with that, tô conquer more people around here! Is there any chance that I could work, in some way, with you to help people get more from you and by chance you help me to get people interested in learning languages?
    At least, It’s Worth a shot asking! Maybe correcting the portuguese captions here you on YouTube?
    Thanks in advance!

  5. Some people might not believe me, but since the first quarantine started, my life changed for the better. I discovered things I never thought were possible. My mindset is changing every single day to the better since then. I'm working on my future right now, and you are like my mentor. You help me a lot, and I'll be honored to see you one day, to talk. ❤️

  6. I think my feedback echoes many others. I love watching an older, even wiser you talk about your mind state when you made some of your most engaging bits of content.

    I'll watch most of these because they'll help connect circa 2015 Gary to Gary today.

  7. First of all, I appreciate and I am blessed all content that you have put. Perhaps this series could be one of true value to the GaryVee community. Looking back at real life examples and giving the backstory really shows some insight and the nuances behind these efforts. I admire your consistency and authenticity and this might just be the one series where you can judge yourself on being consistent or not. Just like the Sauvignon Blanc which you are now enjoying and the fact that you are so real to admit it…. 🙂 Keep giving us juice Gary.

  8. 4 years ago I was that person who was nit picking videos for little details. Then I realized that I was jealous of the fact that people were doing things that I wanted to do and all that ever was, was chasing their dream.
    Watching your videos made me realize that I was thinking more than I was doing, started a podcast and now I’m learning how to use social media as a business tool rather than a place to entertain myself.

  9. Gary, how did you meet and begin working with Drock? I love the energy between you two, how candid and comfortable y'all are. I imagine you know each other from school and bounced ideas for years. The rapport is apparent. — Appreciate your content, always motivating. You definitely inspire that spark to make moves. Thank you for being an authentic being in our virtually driven existences. <3
