Your advice is invaluable, thanks Gary! I followed your advice and started using Igrocket com to boost my insta page I have now nearly doubled the leads to my Etsy page, thanks Gary!

I really like what he had to say at 34:51 about American's don't like to be held accountable and actually placing the blame for the banking crisis and the current student loan crisis with the people that actually took these deals. Very nice.

Having youtube premium makes youtube advertisements more or less irrelevant. I think you could take it one step further and just sponsor an influencer in your target market.

My favorite channel !!
Every video is better than the other You are so right and give me motivation and power.
"The only thing that makes him look back
Is to see how far you have progressed "

With the inevitable rise of voice, personal branding is going to continue becoming more necessary. The one thing artificial intelligence will never be able to do is be human. For that reason, personal brands / influencers will become even more influential as users choose to consume specific personal brands on voice first platforms.

As Gary mentioned, other brands will become commoditized unless they establish brand. Influencer placements will become the most sought after marketing real-estate (after voice first corporations inevitably start demanding ridiculous prices to play) because they will be the most consistent marketing opportunity that remains. And with voice being the medium of this transaction, having a podcast is the cornerstone to a forward facing personal brand.

This is something Gary helped me realize and it's the reason I started a podcast and AAFB. I even referenced Gary in my TedX Talk (

I REALLY like this keynote 2019. It's really encourage me to life on the Internet. I've tried to "sell" something on Facebook and Instagram, give some value, and this video makes me more confident. Gary is a practitioner, he already experience all of that. Thank you, I really appreciate this video and of course you Gary Vee!

Yes….the issue is business are going to adapt with technology like they've all across America with computers in their stores. It will just make things easier to mange and you'll eventually pay less workers if you've computer running everything, even stocking the store. Will it cost? Most def. It will also destroy all the work for young adults, most starting jobs for teenagers, some of the elderly whom are living at ends meet are working at these jobs also. All these jobs are going to be lost and its probably going to happen within 5 years….and its crazy to me….algorithm's run everything and soon they'll take over the rest of it to save time because everyone wants more time….but what are they going to do with all the people whom can't afford nor buy anything because all the jobs lost to AI. Its as simple as that. As business grow with technology and innovate to new ways….people are going loosing their jobs and I hate it but I love innovation and technology.

Gary is the man, forever grateful

Damn…Nothing good in your life can happen if you start with No… For the longest time, I would watch your videos and wanted to make content because I saw the power of it, but I would always make excuses.

It wasn't till I watched one of your other videos and said:'Time waits for no man'.So now I started getting out there and making content.

Thanks be to God, now i share motivations and teach people basic computer knowledge and again knowledge about the online world, the online world is growing massively so it's important we study about it.

If it wasn't for the incredible content and motivation that you drop I would have never did this

Your content has inpired me to go on my way up, and now i'm on target to make great things happen…. So Thank you GARYVEE

@garyvee I was wondering when 2020 was gonna be in the title with the V.
Also when the V says he and Aj are celebrating 1 years in business, I literally started clapping, assuming the audience would give props. It was yet another moment in my life where I see people hearing not listening and not being good people. Like no one did a thing. But no biggie, roll with the punches, cause theirs no "crying in baseball!"(what movie?)
A THE V, I am saying that at 1:20 into your first wine library episode, is when you realize the "Historically correct thesis!" Let me know what ya think??!! one Love

yep yep yep "misaligned interests" that is the story of everything at the sub standard "top" and our waste-entitled culture!
