A Day In The Life With Gary Vaynerchuk

I spent a day hanging out with Gary Vaynerchuk last year. If you don’t know Gary, he’s the “wine guy” who does owns a liquor store in New Jersey, and who also speaks, and consults and has books and produces a Web video show that’s viewed by 100k+ people every day. Yeah, he’s a dynamic guy.

Ever wonder what it would be like to follow Gary around and hang with him for the day? I did, and here’s my writeup about it. I hope you enjoy it. It includes videos.

Oh yeah, go buy his book Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion. You will love it. It will get you pumped up, believe me.

A Day In The Life With Gary Vaynerchuk

Are You Awesome? You Can Be!

I’m bringing back a few videos from waaaaayyy back in the day. August 2006 to be exact. We did these videos on Awesome Dave’s Mac. It was my first exposure to creating online videos and I realize now that these videos are a huge reason I pursued moving to video. So much fun.

So what is this all about? Me and my buddy Dave created the Awesome Million, where anyone, or anything, can become really awesome! It’s free, so go get yourself awesome today!

By the way, check out my Awesome page.

Here’s our quick intro video of what it’s all about.

Here’s a longer video talking more about it.

And here’s a wacky video of us seeing who can eat a stack of crackers the fastest.

Here’s one of us dancing like idiots with Billy Bob teeth.

Zac Johnson Has The Skillz To Be The Next John Chow

One of my favorite guys in “the biz” is Zac Johnson of Moneyreign fame. Well, it looks like Zac finally got himself a blog. Take a peek at


MoneyReign, Inc., one of fastest growing entertainment and marketing networks on the Internet currently serving over 3 million impressions each month. In addition to on-site and email marketing, the Company is focusing on delivering fun and compelling ecard and humor related content to viewers all around the world.

Zac’s recent blog entry entitled ‘How to Get a Free 42″ Sony Plasma TV!‘ was a heckuva lot of fun to read and learn from.

The best part is, he sure did get that TV, for only about $250 in total purchases and some hard work checking the offers and tidying up that kind of stuff.

I should totally go do that, my TV is 12-years-old.

But wow, pretty cool eh? The best part is that Zac tells exactly how he did it, and gives you advice on how to do it to. That makes for a great blog.

Welcome to the blog world Zac, and keep up the great posts! Consistency of quality…

Oh yeah, and put an rss to email signup form on your blog so I can read it :)

Awesome Blogs I Can’t Read Because They Don’t Have An RSS To Email Feature

rssemail.jpgThis is a selfish post. I’m doing it because I’m lazy and I want to get the attention of bloggers who haven’t set up an RSS to email subscription on their blog. See, I hate feed readers, and I like to get my blog info via email updates.

So if you don’t have email rss updates setup on your blog, I can’t read you. C’mon, you can do it!

So here’s my list of awesome blogs I want to read regularly, but don’t because I can’t subscribe via email.

I’ll just update this list as I find them, and scratch them out as they (hopefully) comply. – Update: It was added!

I’ll add more here as I find them.

ZEfrank’s Last ‘The Show’ Today

I gotta tell you, I’m a bit weepy after watching his last show today. Why? Well, I’m a sucker for sappy music and slow-motion montages, plus, you know, ZE is THAT good. It sucks this run is over.


You can watch ZE’s first show one year ago here. My only solace is that I can be sure of meeting ZE in person and seeing him speak at the Affiliate Summit this summer in Miami. Bring it ZE, I know you will.

Thanks for the content and follow through, you have no idea how much what you have done has inspired me, on multiple levels.

Oh yeah, Happy St. Patrick’s day to everyone.
