Gary Vaynerchuk Career Details
Gary Vaynerchuk, 35, has always been a salesman for as long as he can remember. This is selling lemonade as a child and baseball cards as a teenager. At 22, Vaynerchuk took over from the Wine Library, his father’s liquor store in Springfield, New Jersey, which eventually grew into a $ 60 million business and one of the largest online wine merchants. Customers flock to the company’s website for Vaynerchuk’s daily video blog, where he gives wine reviews in a playful, New Jersey-like tone.
In 2009, Vaynerchuk gambled on his passion for social media with a new venture, VaynerMedia, which advises large companies on how to manage their online communities. Today, Vaynerchuk splits time between the two companies, filling his day with wine reviews, client presentation meetings, and a continuous stream of tweets.
