"If you live for the weekends and vacations, your shit is broken"

Gary Vaynerchuk, l'homme derrière le site de vidéo blogging WineLibrary, était présent dimanche 15 mars pour présenter sa vision du monde. Je vous laisse en juger avec un palmarès de ses citations, recueillies par Andrew Mager de chez Zdnet.

Vaynerchuk est décrit comme l'homme le plus influent en matière de vins, après the infamous Tony Parker. C'est quelqu'un de superexcité sur scène - assez insupportable à mon avis mais qui a un vrai sens de l'humour. Il incarne à sa manière l'entrepreneur moderne.
I pride myself in listening. When you have people paying attention to you, your biggest job is to listen what they want. Deliver what your community wants.

I was scared of riding a bike, so at 8 years old, I rode a Big Wheels. I peed my bed till I was 12.

Your legacy is being written by yourself. Make the right decisions.

It’s about embracing your DNA. People are lying to themselves. They want to be something they’re not. If you truly understand who you are. You need to love yourself more.

If you’re a jerk, your intern is gonna Flip-cam your career to the garbage.

I love being up at 3:00 in the morning chatting on AIM.

There are a billion social media consultants telling you to use Twitter, and all this other stuff. The difference is: do you have the chops? Is your product good?

Your grandparents didn’t build a butcher shop because Walter Kronkite said it was good. You have to hustle your face off.

If your bottled water taste like ass, it’s not going to win. If your water lights up the world and nobody knows about it, and you don’t know how to tell that story, you’re not gonna win either.

It comes down to content and authenticity.

If you live for the weekends and vacations, your shit is broken.

Il y en a d'autres : continuer la lecture.
