Awesome Tip: NOW is your time – Speech to Alabama Football Team | Gary Vaynerchuk 2018 Keynote

Speaking to the 2018 Alabama Crimson Tide football team in August and giving my best advice on their current opportunity and the perspective and motivation student athletes should have while in school.

I was thrilled to be able to give them a framework on what I’m about which allowed for doing what I love most when I’m invited to speak, which is open Q&A on whatever is most contextual to them as individuals and as college football players.

  1. What he said about leverage as a college player is so true, I've seen tons of guys who played at usc etc and end up getting jobs that they're basically not qualified for because they likely made some kind of connection based on their status as a player. He's also very right about college and people, a lot of these you tube entrepreneur marketers types love to bash on "a Harvard mba", but what they don't realize is people do those things for the connections, not necessarily what you learn. I don't normally like these types but this guy is def the exception

  2. of all the schools to visit, he went to Alabama? Why?…..they have dominated college football for years, they don't need motivation. Their legacy is motivation and repeating as champs is more than enough. Go talk to the teams who never make it to the college playoffs.

  3. Hey bro!
    This is my first time reaching out to you. I am currently watching this video timestamp 14:16 and you have just mentioned something about someone figuring out the patience game.

    For some time now I have been under the impression that patience and success go hand in hand.

    I have a phrase that I have developed over the accumulated experience I have had with patients and the accumulated experience of others who have talked about patience and how it has worked in their lives.

    The phrase goes as followed:

    Patience is a virtue of the Gods. For the Gods are Immortal and do not have to deal with the pressured that comes with time/time limits….."

    " in turn, if I become more patient do I become more Godlike?"

    I developed this phrase before I stumbled upon the first video I had ever seen of you.

    Like all the many topics you touch on, this one resonates with my belief and confidence that my life will be a success.

    Thanks for all the advice and keep kicking ass!

  4. Gary, you are a champ!

    Everybody reading this is a champ too! Don’t wait, don’t hesitate, just start that vlog or new project today! If you follow even a portion of what Gary says… I KNOW you will be successful! You got this. It took me a bit to get started but I’m here to tell you, today is the day you should start!

  5. I like the brief bit about borrowing money and patience… I run a small online fabric shop and started with 8 fabrics. I keep reinvesting and now I have 600 fabrics and haven't borrowed any money to get here! It's not a cool and trendy business but I am learning to feel proud of what I am in the process of achieving!

  6. "The level of taking for granted what your sitting on is extraordinary"- Gary Vee. Sees nothing but opportunity in different 'outside the box' thinking for these young individuals. "Squeezing it is just phenomenally interesting to me."

  7. I can't tell you how much this needs to be heard by this group.
    I've never been a football player, but when people in positions of power (football players on campus) UNDERSTAND how much leverage they have
    AND…..AND USE IT FOR GOOD (ie. saying hi to their seat neighbor in poly-sci)
    THAT is the REAL GAME changer.
    That neighbor feels good about himself, thus treating the next person he/she sees better and the ripple begins.
    Thank you Gary for spreading this message-
    Your dream of being the most impactful entrepreneur is not a dream- IT REAL my friend- You're DOING IT NOW!
