  1. Gary this is amazing advice, you're such an inspiration to everyone! I followed your instagram marketing advice and started using Igrocket Com To boost my insta page and WOW I have nearly doubled the amount leads to my Etsy page, you're the best Gary!

  2. Hi Gary I want to reach you however I can. I'm reading Crushing it. Thanks for making the book, the knowledge, the empowerment!

    I wanted to ask how to grow your personal brand, if you have a separate brand that sells products, and how to link the 2.

  3. I was terminated by my company last friday, i am not sad or ashamed Ive been planning for this since they hired me … saved invested saved invested.. I only needed a quantity that was only going to be given if they terminated me .. and it happened… thanks for corona .. it finished the company sadly ..

  4. Great video, thank you! Would also add, being CEO is great for the people who want it and have the personality for it, at the same time it is a very stressful position, so do what is the best match for your personality and dreams that you have.

  5. Hey Gary, I am a great fan of yoirs but what made me annoyed in this is you did not allow the guest to speak much, interrupting hundred times, almost acting like a police enquiry process. Otherwise its a great episode.

  6. Gary predicted the Corona virus. On one of his episodes he was like "the U.S. needs to experience another tragic event so people won't be so entitled/ complaining about stuff that doesn't matter."

  7. Gary, what if you haven't completed high school, had 7 businesses with no success, have no experience with accounts or organization and just watch your videos to inspire you, hoping i will strike lightning in the jaw. Will all my hard work pay off ? What should I do??

  8. Thank you so much Gary i will come out of my comfort zone i and i will do all these steps and hopefully end up like you thank you gary you are the man and you are so inspiring!

  9. gary needs to shut the fuck up and let the man answer one question before 8 more at him. Fucking annoying. Love you Gary but I can't even watch because im constantly expecting your interruption. Ruins the conversations flow.

  10. Hey Gary, Its hard for me to get fired. I'm too good of an employee with a reputation to uphold that getting fired would mean I do something way out of my character. But man some times I wish I was fired so that hopefully it would light a fire under my ass to do something with my talents.
