Positive Role Models; Gary Vanyerchuck & The Game Talk Life
One glance at this post and there's a good chance you're already familiar with The Game; Hip Hop legend and now entrepreneur. He's best known as an iconic rapper in the West Coast hip hop scene and for years of continued and unparalleled success in the industry. While he continues to excite his fans with new musical material, he's also become the latest on a short list of celebrities joining forces with and investing in the medical marijuana industry in an innovative way. The hip-hop star has just become an official partner in a dispensary, The Reserve in Santa Ana California, and is a brand ambassador for Be Lit Brand.
The man on the left is a legend in his own right; Gary Vaynerchuk is a serial entrepreneur and the CEO and founder of VaynerMedia, a full-service digital agency servicing Fortune 500 clients across the company’s 5 locations. Gary is also a prolific public speaker, venture capitalist, 4-time New York Times Bestselling Author, and has been named to both Crain’s and Fortune’s 40 Under 40 lists. He hosts his own show show, a business and marketing focused Q&A video show and podcast, as well as DailyVee, a docu-series highlighting what it’s like to be a CEO, investor, speaker, and public figure in today’s digital age.
Let's Give Them Something to Talk About
When worlds collide, sparks can fly. Given they've never met before and the impossible variance in their backgrounds and lifestyles, one might wonder what these two powerhouses could possibly have in common. Turns out it's more than you might think.
It starts with a simple question from Gary; "How are you doing?" To which The Game replies "Can't complain." And it's really as simple as that; when you "wake up, and you're alive, and you're not in jail for the rest of your life" what is there really to complain about? Success is a matter of being grateful that you're alive, that you're able to start working on your dream NOW, whether that's to invest in the next great idea or to be the top ranked player for Madden in the world (which, did we mention The Game is the top ranked Madden player in the world?).
Gary agrees; "The odds are 400 trillion to one" that you were even born, "you've already beaten the odds." Time to go after your dreams, people!
