Gary Vaynerchuk - InstagramSocial Media Is a Long Game

Gary builds businesses.

During his career, he has grown a family wine business by 20,000% in 5 years, founded one of the world’s hottest digital agencies, co-founded an investment fund, acted as an angel investor and venture capitalist, hosted a show, written books, and maintained an active public speaking schedule. He has consistently been ahead of the curve when it comes to recognizing the next big thing in social media and has evolved into a self-proclaimed “land-grabber”.
