Gary Vaynerchuk is one of this generation’s most prominent entrepreneurs. He’s on a mission to leave behind a legacy and a history of what the life of entrepreneur looks like. In the process, he’s risen to fame and fortune, but none of that is as impressive as his authentic outlook of what it will take to succeed in the world of business. On that topic there are a ton of Gary Vaynerchuk quotes that we’ve all seen circulated online.
His wisdom continues to inspire young and old entrepreneurs alike. He’s an advocate for hard work, patience, and passion.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have Gary Vaynerchuk on The Dealer Playbook podcast twice. Each time, he has delivered golden nuggets of wisdom about what you can be doing to expand and conquer in business.
These are 20 of my favorite, albeit lesser-circulated Gary Vaynerchuk quotes.
