Gary Vaynerchuk: The American Dream
The American Dream still exists. If you don’t believe us, ask Gary Vaynerchuk. Born in the Soviet Union, a capitalist’s worst nightmare, Gary’s family immigrated to the United States at an early age. From that day on, Gary has been king of the hustle and lord of the internet. What is it that made his American Dream come true? When all signs point to us living paycheck to paycheck, what is it we can learn from GaryVee? Quite simply it’s one of the things we here at Grunt Style and American Grit value so much. It’s nothing else other than the hustle.
As a kid, Gary had the drive to succeed. He made money hand over fist selling lemonade on the corner. Trading baseball cards was another source of income for the young Vaynerchuk kid as well. Before the age of 10, Gary Vaynerchuk had already figured out a secret to building wealth in America and achieving that American Dream. Multiple sources of income. He knew and executed these principles from a young age. Aside from that Gary was a pretty normal average kid. He didn’t have mutant superpowers of observation or persuasion. He just had the gift of grinding and working hard.
As Gary grew up, his work ethic never disappeared. The internet boom allowed Gary to capitalize on his work ethic in an unprecedented way, transforming his dad’s company almost overnight. Everyone wants something for nothing nowadays. They forget what made the American Dream possible all those years ago. Work. Hard work, grinding the wee hours, being a workaholic so that one day, you could live life like nobody else did.
Gary Vaynerchuk is a fantastic example of the facts of life. The facts are, that with a little bit of know-how and a whole lot of hard work you too can achieve success in this country. And if you fail, that’s ok get back up, because there are no excuses in Gary’s book.
