If you found this post it’s most likely because you searched Google for the Ask Gary Vee book. Also, it’s most likely before the Ask Gary Vee Book ever came out yet. However, you are probably a hardcore Vayniac of the Vayner Nation and are looking for the dates on when the Ask Gary Vee book is coming out.
Although, he has visually answered questions (over 250 of them) on YouTube the book has answers to other questions not documented yet on YouTube and it’s a great way to give back to Gary for sharing his insights on social media, business, and life.
We think this will be one of his best books since Crush it because it’s again about the execution and his answers from actually living a lot the questions asked vs. theory.
2:25 – If you were to start VaynerMedia today without anyone knowing who you were, how would you find talent?
Gary’s answer is very insightful. First he says without the leverage in the social media space and proven results to leverage you shouldn’t even be opening a social media agency just because you know how to snapchat and are twenty three.
Secondly, if you really want to create social agency you need to have the skills first but then you need to network (go to meetup.com), join the community and don’t fake the funk.
These are the rest of the questions he answered.
5:57 – In a Snapchat/Instagram world, is video quality (lighting, etc not content) more essential than in years’ past? 8:04 – Some social media experts advocate deleting your old tweets or posts because without context they might not make sense. What do you think? 10:48 – What is the number one characteristic that you want to pass down to your children, and the number one characteristic you hope they don’t get from you? 14:29 – I’m thirteen years old and I just wrote my first book. If you were in my shoes, what would be the first step to promoting the book?
Learn more about what Gary Vaynerchuk shares about business, life, and social media marketing at this 2015 Keynote at Internet Week. Another funny thing is “attention” is one of his new golden nuggets and main themes of this talks lately and its the whole game along with reverse engineering.
Gary is big on Attention in his keynotes in 2015 and it’s very similar to what Grant Cardone has preached for years. You need attention before you sell or influence anyone. Gary gets a ton of attention because he actually executes.
If you pay attention to this video you will find a golden Facebook dark post tactic where Gary has turned WineLibrary into a Buzzfeed type content site and uses specific content with Facebook ads to hyper target people and sell over $18,000 of wine. As he points out 99% of you that read this and watch the keynote below won’t execute this strategy.
And even better yet we get the answer directly from Gary Vaynerchuk himself, he says:
“You know I’m an Entrepreneur really, Like really really really what I am, I mean at 4 years old if you’re ripping flowers out of people’s yards and ringing their doorbell and desperately asking them to buy it or when you’re six and everyone wants to play dodge ball, or go on the swings and you’re desperately trying to get everybody to stand behind a lemonade stand for 8 hours during their summer vacation, I’m an Entrepreneur, I’m a salesman”
Gary Vaynerchuk searches on Google have people curious to know these things about Gary and let’s break it down a bit.
Gary Vaynerchuk net worth: What is Gary Vaynerchuk net worth?
So Celebrity Net worth puts Gary’s net worth at $10 Million dollars which we think is a real low ball. As you watched in the video about Gary Vee with Will Cain Gary mentions he makes $3-$5 million a year depending on keynotes and how much of his investments he unloads in Twitter or when his investments are bought out like Tumblr.e
Also, his digital/social agency VaynerMedia has been known to charge their clients $50-80k month per Gary in some of his videos where he has been interviewed.
UPDATED (August 2016) – Gary talks about “Gary Vaynerchuk net worth” on the Art of Charm searches confirming what we knew all along people will be googling this for the next 5, 10, 15 years+ He then confirmed he made over 10 million in the last year and Wine Library property worth is well over the 10 Million net worth from “Celebrity Net Worth”. He also talked about how Vaynermedia is doing 100 million a year in revenue and agencies are selling at 2 to 3x their revenue. He also talked about the top 1% making 400k a year (here, Wall Street Journal, and here, CNN) and how he makes that in two keynote speeches.
Gary is constantly hating on other people asking people for money from their audience to buy things. However, he only gets paid (now $250,000 as of 2019)for a speaking gig because he has the audience. So he does monetize his audience.
He also sells books, KSwiss Sneakers, he sells his wine club Empathy Wines (similar to Tai Lopez MentorBox & Grassfed Brands monthly subscription), he sells “VanynerMentor” and Vayner 4ds which is very similar to Tai Lopez as well.
Gary Vaynerchuk wine:
This is how Gary got his start to internet fame. He used Viddler to make videos about wine dumbing it down so “regular” people can learn about wine without feeling stupid. This in turn helped his Dad’s wine business Wine Library (previously Shoppers Discount Liquor) grow from 3-4 million to 50-60 million in revenue depending on what blog you read it on. He constantly says now that his Dad didn’t give him anything from the business to try to increase his street cred but lets be real how many kids get handed a 3 million dollar a year business to work in to start and don’t expect that to be passed down to them eventually. If he really wanted that his Dad would of gave him the business. He has said he was 1% unhappy doing that and wanted to go the social media motivational speaking route and start VaynerMedia with his brother to help his brother out and used his Father in Law connection at Gillette to get his first client there.
There was a book SocialNomics by Erik Qualman that featured this execution of social/video media to grow a business. This was also around the time Gary had one of his most watched YouTube Video Keynotes.
Gary has actually written 3 books (Crush it (really set it him off on the internet fame direction), Thank You Economy, and lastly Jab Jab Jab Right Hook.) Also, Gary has mentioned several times now that he is going to launch a new book soon based off all the questions he has been asked on the Ask Gary Vee Show. Gary’s 4th book will be titled “Ask Gary Vee” Book or along the lines of the show as the theme and possibly using people’s questions and twitter or Instagram handles in his book.
Gary Vaynerchuk Quotes:
One of Gary’s most famous quotes that is relevant to what he focuses on everyday (social media) is… “What’s ROI of your Mother?”
Another great quote from Gary Vaynerchuk is from his Instagram account.
Yes, Gary Vaynerchuk is married to his wife Lizzie Vaynerchuk with two kids and keeps that very private and personal and rarely does he use social media to show his family. Respect to Gary for letting his wife and kids make their own decisions on whether they want to be online as much as he is.
Funny enough along with Gary Vaynerchuk’s net worth his Gary Vaynerchuk’s wife is most searched after his name. People want to know how much he makes from his form of hustle and what his wife thinks of it since most people have families and wives/husbands and wouldn’t work as much as he does. They want to know what Gary Vaynerchuk’s wife either looks like since she is never on his social media or how she feels with him working so much is our guess.
Gary Vaynerchuk never shows his wife on social media even though he documents 18 hours a day of being away from his family. He admits in most situations someone’s significant other or wife wouldn’t put up with his lifestyle. However, he said is wife is ok with it because she is use to it from her dad working all time when he worked for Gillette which funny enough was Gary Vaynerchuk’s first client at Vaynermedia.
Wine Library is Gary’s father business he helped grow in Springfield, NJ after his father and family moved to the US from Belarus. Wine Library is Online wine retailer offering a variety of ratings, reviews, tasting notes, recommendations, and information on the latest trends.
Gary Vaynerchuk youtube:
One thing Gary admits is he made a mistake not using YouTube and going with Viddler for his Wine Library TV show that helped get him where he is today. However, YouTube is what sparked Gary to follow the attention of the market and start banging out 5 wine videos every week from his dad’s wine store.
Also, he has now built a 100+ business vlog show again letting his vayniacs ask him questions about business, life, family, and social media. It’s called the Ask Gary Vee Show and the foundation to an upcoming book and where he gives away free value (jabs) until he is ready to unload the big right hook a year or two later for his book.
This helps him gain attention and stay relevant in this crazy content and social media world where everyone and their mother is pumping out status updates, tweets, videos, photos, blog posts, podcasts and more to gain attention for themselves.
Gary Vaynerchuk blog:
Gary has recently redesigned his site/blog and has one of the members of his personal content team stunwin gathering sound bites and posting content to his personal blog and then redistributing on platforms like Medium for more views, attention, and shares. Gary Vaynerchuk has said he now has a 10-15 team of people helping him create, edit, post for his Gary Vee Brand although he still answers tweets, comments on Instagram and Facebook. Most of his team film, edit, write the articles, run the ads, create the memes and graphics. All the hard legwork it takes to produce content as often as he does

On December 4th, 2015 Gary Vaynerchuk released his first “dailyvee” vlog where he has his content team follow him around to show how much he loves what he does which enables him to do it all day long from “6am-11pm”
At first it looked similar to the YouTube Millioniare daily vloggers (BFvsGF, Vitalyzdtv, Roman Atwood ect…) but so far it’s not “daily”. So the daily part is turning out to be watching how Gary Vaynerchuk works everyday. (He eventually posted daily once he had a 10-15 person team for team garyvee)
