Gary Vaynerchuck Pulls No Punches – P.H.C.C.

A Social Media Maven

If you haven’t  heard of Gary Vaynerchuck then you can’t have spent much time on the internet.  Gary is a social media maven who has risen to fame and fortune with his winelibraryTV video blog and is one of the hardest working people you can imagine. Gary has built his brand and his loyal following on his devotion to his fans. He advocates giving and giving and then more giving. He answers every email personally which can sometimes take him up to 12 hours a day. (Glen Crosier wrote a great note about this subject a couple of weeks ago – How Much Time Should You Invest in One on One Relationships ?)

Gary Pulls No Punches

I have become a regular viewer of his video blog at he is a guy to watch because he is a true expert on social media and knows how to effectively leverage his position and branding power after  putting  in years of  effort and hard work. He’s down to earth, unpretentious and brutally honest;  renowned for his straight talking at breakneck speed. Gary pulls no punches and tells it like it is.

Gary and Noah

My Facebook friend Noah ‘StJohn did an interview with him a few days ago and if you are quick you might still get a chance to hear it. Check out Gary had Noah in stitches with his razor sharp humour.

Gary Likes Acronyms – P.H.C.C.

Gary’s has summarised his philosophy in 4 letters  P.H.C.C

Patience, Hustle, Content and Community

“Patience, success don’t come over night, it takes time to build a business and establish a brand

Hustle for the monetising, email advertisers and ask them to promote you

Content ,  if there is substance behind it people will respect it – do what you know best and are passionate about If you don’t have the goods  then you are going to be exposed eventually

Community – give, give and give some more, answer every email, follow every lead, shake every hand”

My Own Personal Lessons

I am learning these lessons and appreciate Gary’s advice.  I  realise I need to do a bit more hustling. A lot more hard work is needed. Getting the right systems in place will be my focus over the coming months.   I am very excited about my  prospects for the coming year and look forward to working wih all the wonderful people I have met online.

On The Cutting Edge

Facebook and other social media sites have given me a platform where I can communicate my Ideas to a much wider audience than I ever thought possible. A  vision to change the world can be brought closer to fruition when you discover that you are not the only one who thinks in this way. Our Facebook community is  right on the cutting edge and we have the tools at our fingertips to get our message out there.

New Opportunities

Every day I am given more and more opportunities, I have  people  coming to me and sharing their ideas, asking to work with me and  I am learning to leverage other peoples talents which frees up more of my own time.
