"Be passionate about what you do." - Gary Vaynerchuk

Albeit his speech might be a bit all over the place in terms of topic but one thing stands out loud and clear, Gary Vaynerchuk is passionate about what he does.

In this 15 minute video, Gary gives his keynote speech at the Web 2.0 Expo in New York. He talks about building a personal brand through social media, a topic that he has a LOT of experience with and has used himself. If you can handle some foul language this video is definately worth watching.


Gary became famous from being the host of Wine Library TV (WLTV), a free daily video blog where he gives wine advice in an abrasively honest sort of way to his cult-like fan base. In a self quote Gary describes himself as having a “unique identity as both a wine expert and a "real person" that has reinvented the concept of wine tasting for a new generation.”
