  1. Mind BLOWN! Seriously, I think a light bulb just went off for me when you said that we're trying to go to Vanilla. When you told Max Maxwell that he can talk real estate, but he can also talk about all his other interests as well. Right now I do that on Snap but I've been scared to do it on IG. You just gave me what I needed. I'm a leather worker and I couldn't figure out how to make something that no one else has done. Yesterday's binge listening and this episode I've got a new plan! Thank you so much! Time to go reorganize my shit and get to it!

  2. I believe I am ready to crush it and all thanks to Gary Vee! I have new skills. I am ready to take my life to the next level with a team to market me… I have been listening and watching what Gary does …hired and lost some videographers so now I am looking for another one….started my weekly video show 7 days after Agent 2021… starting my podcast Saturday – 6 months after Voicecon which has been too long but I'm starting now. I know you are changing my life. Been blogging since the internet went commercial … bought google ppc and keywords since they began….generated 1 billion dollars in real estate sales year after year by using google for leads for agents…lost millions in the real estate crash but money is not my thing so it goes- Vegas was #1 in foreclosures….now using facebook to generate ads for real estate leads and selling lead to agents – cause FB ads WORK!…. teaching social media weekly to agents – in 1983 was the 1st authorized training center for Microsoft- when Gates ask us to move from Atlanta to Seattle I politely said no to becoming an employee….in 1986 moved to Vegas and got into real estate as a technical partner for a top salesman whom I married! Founded Agent Formula in 2010 – I have a team developing websites that are content rich and video rich for Las Vegas real estate agents and I still blog monthly for the vegas city centric sites…..In March 2018, started an internet shop for selling Las Vegas souvenirs and Vegas Golden Knights gifts & gear… learning instagram's platform to use for ads for the shop… I believe I am ready to crush it with my new set of skills and all thanks to Gary Vee! The EXP opportunity appeared at my door out of the blue. Timing is everything!

  3. I love the contrast of energy here. The two young guys are kind of ra ra enthusiastic with inspiring backstories pumping you up while “grandpa” Gary sensitively supplies the depth and insight which might resonate with a totally different type of person who may not totally relate to these guys. They’re cool, but they kind of make it seem a little too easy while Gary adds a layer of nuance and realism.

  4. As an introvert, I love so much that Gary takes the time to think of engagement strategies that work for everyone. That's the power of empathy and a big reason I love his his content so much! ❤️❤️❤️🙏🙌💯

  5. I really thank you Gary for this video from 58:00 – 103:28 is what I needed to hear. People are people if they like you it’s doesn’t matter what you talk about because people fuck with the person even if they change their content people will still watch you. If Gary started talking about hip hop and did more hip content I will still watch just to get his perspective on music. Now I can start my channel

  6. Will really appreciate if you can let other people fully develop their points and complete a question. People tend to lose track of their train of thoughts when you interrupt with an entire story.

  7. This is the video (or the video after the hundreds of other videos/posts/podcasts) that clicked for me. Build your brand around yourself, don't limit yourself. Have partners, build at scale and repeat. Thank you Gary 🙏
