Awesome Tip: Why Working for Free Gives You Authority | Surprising a Fan From Twitter

Super happy that I got to surprise a fan from Twitter! Calling fans in general is always a really good way to keep your community engaged and in-tune with whatever it is that you’re doing.

One of the main points that I really want to hit on again from this episode was the idea of working for free to build a reputation and credibility… If you don’t have a degree or the experience that other people do have, you should be working for free for 5-10 clients and crush it for them so that you can build up a strong reputation moving forward.

  1. My friend. Why do people believe in God when there's Gary Vee? He is the incarnation of the almighty himself! Bro thanks so much for your hard work dude you are leading a fucking god damn revolution and like Neo, I don't think you understand how big it is and is GROWING every damn day. Motherfuck. Thanks dude!!!

  2. How would you go about asking? im nervous of not saying the "right" thing in either the DM's or email. Does anybody have an example of what they write? I would like to be able to work for one of the 24 MLS soccer teams.

  3. 4:05 People are spending 4+ fucking grueling years at universities studying under industry veterans and experts to become experts in their fields, so "a piece of paper" is a bit of an oversimplification. I went through it and not a single cent of my tuition was wasted. I do however absolutely love what you said at 6:00. That, I believe, is the reality.

  4. What happens when you work for free as an intern for someone to gain experience in the industry you’re wanting to get into and after interning the leader of your team tells you they will pay you for your work and effort but they end up slacking on their end to and don’t keep their word to pay you as well as lack the proper leadership to lead the team to build his brand? You voice your concerns about where the integrity of how the team functions when it comes to paying employees and you get shut out. At what point do you say it’s ok to continue working for someone who doesn’t keep their word but still want to gain experience still? While my loyalty is a big part of who I am but when your deal is to work for free three months and then after 3 months you will start to get paid and you don’t get paid for the work you do ?

  5. (Found this today cuz i'm putting out Intern/Freelancer applications to work with me and my YouTube channel and Amazon Store)
    my quick notes:
    how to start building a brand: (memory card company example)
    Make content for people who are buying that stuff.

    Make a funny video for IG and target ppl looking to buy memory cards.

    Provide utility or entertainment. (or escapism) (lots of ppl watch DailyVee for pure entertainment)

    Trade both UTILITY and ENTERTAINMENT (garyV does both)

  6. Love this video, today i was offered a job as a revenue auditor at a casino in baton rouge. Pay was $13.50. Nice wage and benefits but i declined because its in my heart to create music and be a artist. i am now getting ready to move to LA in 3 months to continue my journey. I turned down job security because i know my purpose and my passion is real! Never give up guys! – @Beeisthefuture

  7. I've been unemployed for 45 days as I'm trying to transition from sales hacker (where I have the paper and the experience) to Agile application hacker for a major tech company (no street cred). I've put myself in a position to do so, by interviewing people at that company to find out where there was an absence of value, and then I built for "FREE" projects that demonstrated I had the chops, but most importantly created value where there was none. Since being unemployed, I've got one public traded house hold brand, to pay me weekly consulting fees, and another major company looking to bring me on as a full time employee helping run Agile App building methodology. It would have taken me years to get a degree, months to get a certificate, and weeks to hack at it to move me into a position to accomplish my goal. Path 2 and 3 is the way to go Gary Vee!

  8. This is an interesting video. I think I would have originally disagreed with the premise. Advice from someone who didn’t have experience in that area doesn’t seem as valid. But, after consideration, I think that there could be huge value here. I do think an objective, outsider’s perspective could actually provide very valuable and constructive feedback for married couples. I could see it as one more piece to the ‘healthy marriage puzzle’ where you get several pieces of input to build into your marriage.
    Thanks for sharing.

  9. Gary V, I'm going to post on EVERY SINGLE Youtube Video of yours to grab your attention.I need to have a mentor like you. Give me the opportunity to learn from you and I will show you the potential I have. Even if you are with me or not, I will succeed, but hey, worth a shot right?

  10. Don't have any degrees but I've worked under and worked with enough "in the know" people to gain a lot of distance, if only those people followed through with their promises to my request for testimonials, I'd gone further in my solo musical career. You can collaborate with all the "right people" till your eyes bleed and your brain oozes out the sockets, but it takes just one "right person" to help you break through the BS and finally get that momentum you needed to make huge monumental breakthroughs. Otherwise you're on your own and count your lucky stars. I think this is all a matter of chance and lotto at the end of the day. Investing in social media success is like relying on a pyramid scheme…
