Vaynerchuk changed the wine world with his down-to-earth, often raw, descriptions of wine. He pulled the stuffing out of it, and while some traditionalists surely bristle at his takes, I’ve been a big fan from the beginning.
In his send off video, Gary says this shift of priorities isn’t about devoting more time to Vayner Media or about an upcoming TV show — “we’ve turned them all down” he says. He says it is about being an entrepreneur first. I welcome what’s to come from this man. His incredible energy and spirit move mountains, and that’s inspiring stuff.
