  1. Hey, Gary! Managed to get to 150 from the first one!! 🙂 You are still providing loads of useful information and inspiration!
    My question is – as far as I know, you use almost all popular social media platforms – FB, Gram, Twitter, all of them. If you don't have many and resource leverage, would you do the same or stock with the most popular (for you) and really dig down on them? #AskGaryVee thx a lot!

  2. Been catching up from episode 1 since December. In High School I used to fancy myself a DJ and one of the first mixes I did was like 20 minutes of Samantha Fox' one hit wonder – 'Naughty Girls Need Love Too' – I probably still have that cassette somewhere. Gary puts out so much content that I bet many people end up relating to him and feeling like they have something in common with him. Looking forward to catching up to the most recent episode so that my comments are actually read by someone. ha.

  3. What would your advise be to a 16 year old student who is very interested in entrepreneurship and wants to learn more about it? Should I start something on a small scale and learning from experience or put this goal on hold until after i have attained a university degree? Thank you Gary

  4. Hey Gary, I'm not a marketing person or a big business person. I'm just a simple person in Las Vegas trying to build a career as a real estate agent to take mine and my family's life to the next level. I just wanted to stop by and say thank you because the last few days I've watched a few of your videos and I have to say I really love and admire your energy and genuine attitude. I especially admire your no bullshit mentality. You helped me realize something. I have been trying to learn about business and investments for the last 3 years or so and up until now I have absolutely nothing to show for it. I keep telling myself and my fiance that it's ok it will happen, it just takes time. You helped me realize that I have been lying to myself. I keep feeling self pity and using any excuse to not work hard or not work at all. I say I want this dream life but right now I'm living the life of a nobody. I feel like there are many problems within myself. I don't know how to figure out what it is and I may never know, but you helped me look at myself and say: "look lou say you want this dream life but you don't do shit. If you truly believe that this is what you want than you better start acting." One thing I want to ask you though. How can I be sure this is what I want? I mean all my life I always dreamed of being an entertainer, a singer, an actor, a writer, or a comedian. Something like that would seem so fun. But sadly I don't see a successful future in that for me. Especially now that I'm 30. I never thought that business and investing was important to me until 3 years ago when I started to learn about these things from rich dad poor dad. Maybe I'm just scared. Am I lying to myself? I want to be more self aware but I can't seem to figure it out. It's not like I want to throw away the last 3 years my fiance and I have been through. I finally feel like we've learned enough to be competant real estate agents. We just need to prove ourselves to a few good clients. Anyway sorry for the long rant/comment. I don't expect a reply. I just really wanted to say thanks, I'm still trying to figure things out but you really helped me break down a pretty big wall of lying to myself.

  5. Haha, Sam Fox – yep, I'm old enough to remember her, just.

    Regarding the icons, I haven't changed mine in years – I think my Twitter icon is the one I started out with, back in 2009.

    I have been thinking about changing it across all channels just to give people a double take. I think sometimes followers see the same icon/profile and gloss over the post just 'cause they know what to expect. A change in profile might get them interested and make them look again, speaking as someone with low brand equity of course 😉
