Donah’s Question or Topic
Donah is a Yoga instructor and a mindfulness coach. She also owns a herbal body care company and started a graphic design business. But after some time, Donah ran out of money to operate. So she had to get back to work to relieve her mind. She’s doing a lot of things and covering a lot of topics, but she doesn’t know what to focus on, making her tired in the long run.
Gary’s Story and Advices
Gary wants Donah to take those losses as part of the process. It can be a loss in the micro, but it is a win in the macro. Gary also lets Donah know that she has still a lot of time, even at 52 years old. He understands that those unfortunate events may happen, such as sickness, but we have a long way to go, especially with the progression of medicine nowadays.
Gary’s baseball card, sports card thing, personal brand, all of those are the things that allow him to be a very good CEO for VaynerMedia. Because if he didn’t have the side stuff, Gary wouldn’t be able to be happy because he would burn out from VaynerMedia. And because his brain would want to do other things at what people perceive as the shortcoming of 80%. But those other hustles allow him to be 110% on the 80.
You could sell futures. A lot of people that don’t have dollars don’t realize the thing they have is their passion and their clout and a business model that takes the money before it comes in.
