Gary Vaynerchuk is the chairman of VaynerX, a modern-day media and communications holding company, and the active CEO of VaynerMedia, a full-service advertising agency servicing Fortune 100 clients across the company’s 4 locations.
In the late 90s, after identifying “the internet” as a land-grab opportunity, Gary transitioned his father’s local liquor store into one of the first wine e-commerce platforms resulting in growing the family business from $3-60MM in sales during a 5-year period.
The world is changing, and it’s important to acknowledge that certain long held beliefs should be re-examined. So many of us are stuck doing things in an outdated way and it’s only leading us to unhappiness. With that in mind, let’s rethink the paths people can take from ages 18 to 28. I don’t have all the answers, so after reading this piece, leave a comment so I can get your perspective on the 18 to 28 debate.
Hey VaynerNation, I’m turning forty-five today. With that in mind, I’ve started to really think about the next forty-five years, because ninety feels about right for me to hang up my jersey. For the first time in my brain, I’m picturing life after ninety and I can imagine life would be different afterward.
A little over a year ago, I launched YummyText for my dad. It was similar to WineText but specialized in providing high quality, gourmet food (at an affordable price) to people who would appreciate it. Since then, this service has blown up, allowing us to expand our offerings and who we’re able to serve. Now we’re expanding again...check out YummyText if you’re... A person who LOVES food This service is for food enthusiasts-- the people who love good food, convenience, and don’t like the overpriced options they might find in the store. For example, our recent deal on Parmigiano Reggiano takes 15% less out of your pocket than the leading discount store (and tastes 100% better). YummyText offers premium olive oil, cheese, chocolate, wine, and so much more! You can elevate your go-to recipes with our exclusive selection of rare sauces and patsas. Or, you can try something new by checking out our Instagram page for recipes and the deal of the day. A person with a small business/ speciality store Maybe you’re more of a behind the scenes person? Do you have a great store or product that you know could help the next great chef take their recipe to the next level? If so, email Brandon Warnke at email@example.com or hit up Brandon on Twitter. We always look forward to partnering with small businesses with exceptional products. Really serious about some of the amazing products we offer Maybe you don’t like cooking and you don’t have an interest in gourmet food--but you know someone that does. If that’s the case, sign up and you may find the perfect Christmas or birthday gift for the emerging Gordan Ramsey in your life. Fill out this form to receive texts from us. Of course, if this isn’t for you then definitely don’t sign up (it costs money to send these texts 😅). As always, stay well, and I hope to hear from you soon.
