  1. Gary are you a minority or are you white? You cant be both. You recently did a video on which you bragged about how you are blessed to be a white male in America, now you are claiming to be a minority. Which one is it? So im guessing you are white around white folks and a minority "jewish" around non whites?

  2. Hey Gary,

    Dude, I totally AGREE with you on this video. I'm an immigrant myself, came here to States when I was 14 from Poland, did not speak any English, right after the Solidarity movement abolished communism in Poland and I gotta tell ya…

    Immigrants are some of the most persistent, diligent, resilient, hard working (and many of them smart working), don't-quit, for-the-long-haul, tenacious, I'll make it happen no matter what people! (I"m sure I missed something…)

    In fact, few months ago, I started a podcast dedicated to that subject matter where I interview successful immigrant business owners and entrepreneurs who started from nothing and make a HUGE success.

    And every time I get to interview one of these amazing people, I'm left in awe.

    I've had a "now multi-millionaire" who escaped on a small boat with 34 other people from Vietnam laying in that boat like sardines (people would cut their trigger fingers off to avoid military)…. Immigrant from Russia who escaped communism and many others.

    So, you are so right man and so glad you bringing this subject up because we can ALL learn from those people. And if I can help spreading the message in any way, help you, let me know. By the way, I shared this video on my Immigrant Masters Unite page. LOVE IT! 🙂

    Thanks man!

  3. You actually made it after saying you will do it. Kudos!

    edit: I would recommend an alternative to being an immigrant: Be an MLM salesman.

    if anyone is in MLM, my apologies, but this is my experience.

    What do I mean? This is the typical cycle of an MLM organization.

    You go to the meeting. There is excessive positivity. Everyone is hyped. Its overwhelming.
    So when you do sign up to join the MLM organization, they will hype you up further like Rocky before a fight.
    "You can do it!"
    "Its in you!"
    "You are talented!"
    "You are made for this!"

    So, overinflated with ego, you set out to sell the products, sing its praises, bring joy to the world!

    …Only to be swatted, despised, and spat upon like a scum.

    You will feel like the most worthless thing on earth for not being able to sell a single thing, and your emotions will be shattered to the last piece.

    Depressed and dejected, you go back to your upline to call it quits, only to have them inflate you with positivity again.

    And you head back out again.

    Two things can result from you repeating this cycle over and over again.

    One: You really succeed from this, and are able to sell any product that touches your hand, happily ever after. The end.

    Two: You are depressed. Dejected. Shunned. Alone. Destroyed. Your self worth will be so battered and brittle that you will SHIVER if you even hear the word MLM. (That's me, if you haven't guessed.)

    MLM selling is the best way to make yourself into a beggar without actually bankrupting yourself. Go and do it for a year. Shatter all your pride and self worth. That's exactly how it feels to be at the bottom of the world.

    p.s. Hope this is a good Right Hook for you Gary. Thanks for all the values you add to our lives.

  4. On point as always! Keep kickin us americans in the pants Gary V! My friend and I were talking about how we as american have the victim mentality and the poor me syndrome. I've been working daily on removing the word "Can't" from my vocabulary. Thanks again, Gary V!

  5. Gary V. I've grown a Facebook page called "Horsepower Memes" in four months to a page of 75k. My question is how do I use that to make money? I've been told to sell decals or t-shirts but I'm wondering if there's anything else I could use that teach for. Thank you.

  6. Great video. My parents came here from the island. And even tho Puerto Ricans are Americans, we didn't take that for granted. my parents worked their butts off to make sure my brothers and I had every opportunity we could. It's now up to us to take what we've learned from them and put it into practice. I'm one that saw my parents struggle for us, and now I'm making sure I go above and beyond what they gave us so I can give something to my children's children. A legacy. An Empire. Thanks for the consistent motivation Gary. I appreciate everything you do.

  7. Americans get spoiled by everything that makes America great, so it's a catch 22, but really you need the losers in the pecking order.    Doesn't mean they will always be losers, just means in the scope of the game you really need to learn what it is to lose before you earn what it takes to win.

  8. My dad always says this is why us Jews do so well in England. There is a different work attitude than the average English person. We were all immigrants and our ancestors fought for us to be where we are.

  9. +Gary Vaynerchuk Gary, every time someone asks you about getting a degree and going to college, you say for the most part, "it's not going to help you in the business world plus you will only end up with debt". What about a scenario where a person on an Athletic scholarship or Academic scholarship is going to college and they have an interest in business and/or entrepreneurship. In this case, would getting a degree in Business Administration be more beneficial or a degree in Entrepreneurship (or is there something else you feel is better)?
