Gary Vaynerchuk (better known as Gary Vee) is a social media expert—and king of the hustle.
We’re sharing his best quotes to inspire you to get out there and make your dream happen!
1. Love your family, work super hard, live your passion.
2. Even if your ambitions are huge, start slow, start small, build gradually, build smart.
3. Life shrinks and expands on the proportion of your willingness to take risks and try new things.
4. You have to understand your own personal DNA. Don’t do things because I do them or Steve Jobs or Mark Cuban tried it. You need to know your personal brand and stay true to it.
5. Live your passion. What does that mean, anyway? It means that when you get up for work every morning, every single morning, you are pumped because you get to talk about or work with or do the thing that interests you the most in the world. You don’t live for vacations because you don’t need a break from what you’re doing—working, playing, and relaxing are one and the same. You don’t even pay attention to how many hours you’re working because to you, it’s not really work. You’re making money, but you’d do whatever it is you’re doing for free.
6. I’m happiest because I’m doing exactly what I want to do.
7. Bet on your strengths. It’s an underrated business strategy in a world where so many people are obsessed with fixing their weaknesses they give short shrift to the skills they were born with.
8. Without hustle, your talent will only get you so far.
9. Skills are cheap, passion is priceless.
10. Look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself, what do I want to do everyday for the rest of my life… do that.
11. Do the work. Everyone wants to be successful but nobody wants to do the work.
