  1. Dear Gary, My name is Matthew Adams (Formerly "House Of Jerky"). It really breaks my heart that you missed it…again. I was asking for HELP!! I was NOT complaining…I needed a recommendation on HOW to handle all of the traffic. It was sudden and unexpected. I never had traffic like that and was caught off guard. I did not know HOW to handle all of the requests.

    Again…I was asking for help on HOW to handle the traffic (NOTE: I was beyond grateful for all of the traffic.)

    But…on a side note, I am no-longer associated with the company because of your words. Corporate was PISSED…at ME for getting the company involved with this. (But that is water under the bridge) You kinda did me a favor.

    I apologize for not stating my needs correctly…but I just wish you would have allowed me to explain (like you promised in a message) what I was asking. I am NOT angry at you anymore…just disappointed that you did not keep your word with me so that there was no misunderstanding.

    Love ya bro…
    Matthew Adams (Facebook @IAmMatthewAdams )

  2. special date for me 😉

    QotD: right, right now, nothing, I'm watching Gary. My video game leisure time is spent playing Pokemon Go – don't judge me, augmented reality and 90's nostalgia are a powerful combo. Shame Nintendo didn't really get in on the action though.

  3. I've been starting from the beginning and over the last month or so I've gotten to episode 117. The first half of this when you and Steve play ball is amazing… It's all about the religion and empowering others.. Thank you.. and looking forward to continuing this journey of catching all of your episodes and get started on DailyVee's … Fun fact: This is my first comment on your show… I've tweeted.. grammed..snapped…but never thought it would be worth it to comment until I caught all the way up… Well guess what.. I was wrong… Thanks broham!

  4. I don't play video games, but my husband does… He is currently playing Fallout.

    How many stars would I give you?
    I would give you 5 stars because you are straightforward and honest with your truth. You're not selling yourself, you're saying this is what I see, this is how I got here and these are ways you could apply it to you. I would love to hear a little expansion into some of the more "creative" job areana's (photographers, makers, that sort). Otherwise, I am referring you to everyone I know including the nonprofit that I volunteer with.

    Keep up the great work and know that you are appreciated.

  5. Gary, fantastic episode. Referring to the jerky guy question, what video was that when you gave him tips? I would love to see it.

    I don't play video games, sadly… So I can't answer his question.

    I am going to get on iTunes after this and write you a review also!

    I love your passion Gary, keep it up!

  6. Great episode! Enjoyed so much the part about stop complaining! #QOTD I don't play video games any more. I used to be very good at soccer video games such as FIFA or PES. Also the Tekken series were my favourite. It is crazy because when I look at the comments, I realise there are a lot of people just like me that +Gary Vaynerchuk gilted out of playing video games. Love the #VaynerNation!
