‘I was seeing the world clearer, faster, easier than my contemporaries’

Gary Vaynerchuk is a wine blogger turned entrepreneurs’ self-help guru. He talks about fake news, fear of change and the future for social mediaBorn in 1975 in Belarus, Gary Vaynerchuk moved to the US with his family when he was three, part of the mass emigration of Soviet Jews agreed in the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (Salt I). He grew up in Queens, New York, and then New Jersey, where his father owned a liquor store. In 1999, he began managing the store and eventually renamed it The Wine Library; by 2005, he claims, he had taken the turnover from $1m to $60m. In 2006, he started a Wine Library video blog that ran to 1,000 episodes – his high-energy, forthright delivery got him a spot on Decanter’s Power list. In 2009, he founded the digital media agency Vayner Media with his brother, AJ. He has a 10-book deal with HarperCollins US and his first four books have all appeared on the New York Times bestseller lists. The latest is Ask Gary Vee: One Entrepreneur’s Take on Leadership, Social Media & Self-Awareness and is based on his interactions with his 400,000 subscribers on YouTube. Later this year, he will begin filming Planet of the Apps for Apple TV, a talent show with fellow judges Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba and Will.i.am, where they will judge and mentor tech startups.Planet of the Apps could make you a lot more famous…I’m definitely going to be known by a lot of people.
