Gary Vaynerchuk – Hustle

Get any group of ten or more young entrepreneurs together anywhere in the world, and you will inevitably hear the name Gary Vaynerchuk.

You might know him from his wine videos, his vlogs, his stage appearances, or you might have taken a selfie with him at a flash mob.

However you know Gary, his name is constantly uttered alongside the word “hustle”.

Rarely agreeing to do one-on-one interviews, It was a privilege to sit down with Gary and really unwrap the truth and power behind some of the sound bites and one-liners he is known for.

Gary tells me his business is “daytrading attention”.

In world increasingly subsumed in instantaneous messages, Instagram photos and often shallow sloganeering, Gary is expert at commanding the attention of young people already bombarded with self-help cliches and materialistic images.

What’s even more fascinating is that he not only grabs the attention of social media savvy young hustlers across the globe, he actually touches them and changes their lives.

One of my big takeaways from this conversation is the way Gary broke down his message.

Gary is the quintessential fast-talking New Yorker, and some can be put off by the intense, “live-for-the-grind” cockiness that has got him where he is today.

But Gary’s message seems to fly in the face of the very culture he is so adept at commanding.

It comes down to this: “Be patient, work hard and stop complaining”.

In a world of greedy gratification and overstimulation, convincing millennials to get over themselves and play the long game for the sake of their dreams, is quite honestly revolutionary.

Gary is this weird mix of humble and confident. He knows the game, and knows he is good at it. But he also prides himself on being a good listener.

It is easy to watch Gary’s YouTube videos, hear the slick, well-crafted, firecracker wisdom and think this guy is all about the talk.

Watching this conversation you meet a nuanced, multidimensional Gary Vee, far more than the image of the media phenomenon.

What a jewel of an interview Mr. Rose.


I love this video. It’s actually practical, I got really cynical of Gary Vee and just thought of him as the motivational dude, but for real this interview has broadened my perspective on the changing world and the constantly changing business environment. Thanks guys!

Clau Lau

Real! Both of them!


Great content as always. Gary is part of the niche of REAL global entrepreneurs. No BS, real experience, real brain. Love it!

Joshua Majchrzack

High Quality Content!

Does anyone knows, where I can find the full video we saw in the outro of “Dan Hannan” ?

I believe Mr Vaynerchuck speaks from his soul. I’ve only met a few people who I believe do this, he speaks and it connects to me on a much deeper level. Brian is a great interviewer riding Gary’s wave and bringing out the essence of not just Gary but all interviewees I’ve seen so far. Great Job to Brian and The London Real Team.

Dominic Jones

Like many of the London Real guests, I had never heard of Gary Vaynerchuk. He inspired me. I loved his energy, his congruency, his patience, and his focus on giving value to others 🙂 Thank you Brian for the introduction 🙂

Kip Coon

Give 51% of the value. Give more value… be true to yourself. Loved this interview.

Karin Schroeck-Singh

When people write comments like ‘great interview, fantastic, brilliant’ ….. I wished they would be more specific and highlight what exactly they appreciated the most from an episode! I would like to mention the 7 things that I personally enjoyed and remember from this interview: 1) I love the intonation when Gary speaks. It makes certain messages stick and sounds spontaneous, convincing, natural. 2) VALUE is the game. Give 51 %. 3) When you are being invited to an interview ask yourself “What value can I bring to the audience (and not how can I promote my products/services). If people… Read more »
