I hope this article offends some people, but mostly I hope it opens peoples’ eyes to the reality of entrepreneurship today.

I present to you a Case Study:

One Mr. Gary Vaynerchuck, founder of Vayner Media. A man who’s net worth is estimated at a whopping 10 MILLION DOLLARS. Makes sense to listen to the guy’s advice then, right? Well…don’t be too sure about that.

Mr. Vaynerchuk originally came to the US via Belarus, without being able to speak a word of English. By the time Gary was a teenager, he was making thousands of dollars by trading rookie baseball cards and already well on his way to being one of the next great entrepreneurs. What really solidified him as a force to be reckoned with was taking his family’s liquor business from 3 to 60 million in sales per year, right out of college. Not bad.

Now let’s take a closer look at our subject. More specifically, let’s examine his “advice”.

I now present the following evidence, dated April 2nd, 2017, posted on his own Instagram account:

If you are not capable in 2017 to google shit and figure out what is going on in the world, f#ck you

Wooooooow! That’s it Gary!! All I have to do is google shit and I’ll be successful! Hallelujah!!

Really? I’m not saying that Google isn’t a useful tool for any entrepreneur, but to simply “google shit” is pretty ignorant advice. I’m also sure that the majority of people are doing that every day anyways, so, kindly shut your pie hole sir.

Here we have another piece of evidence, dated March 31st, 2017, posted on the man’s Facebook Page:

Everybody’s got shit, and nobody cares about your shit. They care about their shit, ’cause everybody’s got shit.

Another golden nugget ladies and gentleman! You see, nobody cares about anybody and every single person on the planet is a selfish asshole (Or maybe it’s just Gary).

This tells me that Gary is Mr. Pure Capitolism. He believes that everyone should be selfish in order to get ahead. Wait a second? Isn’t that what causes pretty much every problem in the economies of the world? Oh ya.

The REAL entrepreneurs of today are the ones who do give a shit about others, I mean, the whole business of being one is basically the job of problem-solving for others. That’s it! Also, shouldn’t we as humans try and make a better world, rather than continuing to be selfish every single day of our lives?!

Lastly, I’ve never heard somebody use the buzzword HUSTLE so god damn much. Gary’s biggest advice to those wanting to be successful is to hustle. What does he mean by this, you ask? Excellent question!

Mr. Vaynerchuk believes that the only way to make it in this world is to work non-stop. That’s right, work from the moment you wake up to the moment you pass out from exhaustion, then do it all over again! Fun, right!?

Study after study shows that the individuals who give themselves breaks, prioritize social activities, take time to eat regularly, and most importantly SLEEP, are the ones who perform better. There is absolutely ZERO correlation between working longer hours and making more money. If that were the case, the “third world” wouldn’t be the third world.

Now don’t get me wrong, he does have some valuable insights, I just believe he’s just lost his way for the time-being. But that being said, as a public figure, you have even more responsibility to the public to tell them the truth, rather than saying stupid things because they sound cool.

RANT OVER….breathe out

I’d love to hear your thoughts on Gary Vaynerchuk, even if you don’t agree with me. Let me hear what you think in the comments below!

  1. I was watching Planet of the Apps and remembered watching Gary’s wine shows. He was ok back then. He managed to transform himself into a self promoting “social media expert” dbag. On Planet of the Apps he’s a pompous ahole. In general, I believe him to be insincere and now very full of himself.

    1. Never actually seen Planet of the Apps, but I don’t doubt he came off completely inauthentic. Every clip or interview I’ve seen of him, his solution to every single problem is to HUSTLE which is ridiculous. His ego has definitely grown like a weed

  2. The value of sleep CAN NOT be underestimated! Glad you brought that up. I just watched one video of this guy after being recommended, and I couldn’t stomach it.
    Daniel Schmactenberger from Neurohacker Collective states that sleep is responsible for 90% of our bodies physiological repair. Now Daniel is a man worthy of your time. A humanitarian spirit and true innovator.

    I really hope Vaynerchuck realizes the error of his ways.

    1. Great point! Shawn Stevenson is also a sleep expert who debunks the whole hustle until you can’t anymore mentality. I’ll definitely check out Daniel Schmactenberger, seeing as I don’t know his stuff personally.

      Thanks!
