Gary Vaynerchuk is Coming, An MSB Discount and More — 9 Comments

  1. Hey Jack, I can’t wait to hear your interview with Gary Vaynerchuk. I first heard about him from you. Between the two of you I felt like you did and wanted to tell my employer right then and there that I quit. Thankfully I didn’t but I’m working on it. Every time I start feeling like I’m not getting anywhere I listen to you two or reread Crush It! again and I’m good to go. Will you be asking him about his new book?

  2. I’m bugging out somewhere in remote Oregon at a location I will call Bug Out Wilderness, in the Bug Out National Forest, near Bug Out Meadow, along Bug Out River, and the tributary Bug Out Spring which flows as Bug Out Creek, in Bug Out County, with the closest town being Bug Out, Oregon. 😉

    • Ahh, envious! 4-6 years more for me; then I too will probably bug out somewhere in Oregon born and raised here and gonna lay to rest here too. 🙂

  4. Jack, I’m in the process of getting my house painted. After getting the bids and doing the math, I’m doing it myself. For the cheapest bid, I can buy top quality paint, a professional paint spraying system and everything else I need for less than half of what the bid was. I just can’t justify paying that much for what will be 4 days of work for me.

  5. @Tim I got a bid for 1800 dollars to fully paint a 2000 SF home including the trim along with painting my outdoor shed. At that price I can’t afford to do it myself as my painting skill is far from professional. If I were painting it for me I’d do it myself but my goal is to quickly sell my property.

  6. I wish I could have gotten mine bid for cheaper. I have a 770 square foot home and the bids were $1800, $2400 and $3000. Part of that might have been the fact that the house is all wood siding and I insist on bonded and insured contractors to work on my house.

  7. Here are a couple of things I would be interested in hearing Gary’s answers to:

    1 – Laying a foundation for a successful business: We’ve heard the stories of how Gary’s father started up what became Wine Library, and Gary succeeded by building off the foundation of what his father established. When an aspiring entrepreneur is starting with NO foundational structure, what would be his answer on how to successfully lay that foundation for future growth (whether it be for one’s self, or for one’s children).

    2 – Gary often talks about DNA. What I’ve always wondered is; if your DNA is something other than that of an entrepreneur, (like say… an artist) how would he suggest to go about harnessing that business savvy instinct to successfully created a small (or large) business (like say… an art studio).

    3 – Not sure if Gary knows of Seth Godin’s book called “The Dip” but I was wondering if he’d have any suggestions or advice for a start up that is currently experiencing “The Dip”… or that point in the curve where things get REALLY TOUGH when most people quit, right before the part on the curve when you reap the rewards of your toil. Obviously persistence is key. Anything else?

  8. Wow, been listening to the podcast for a couple of months now and finally came to the website this morning and am super impressed. I was also completely excited to see that you are having Gary V on as I have been following him for years. Needless to say seeing the website/Gary V this morning has solidified my interest. Way to go, your content is great and your delivery is above most, keep it up.
