Jay’s Question or Topic
Jay is a 62-year-old entrepreneur. He has been working with over 500 people on VaynerMedia on their well-being twice a month and while working there, he found out the generosity of Millenials to accept what he has to say as someone with experience. He has also been speaking to audiences ever since The Biggest Loser. He wants to know what Gary sees as an opportunity to connect with more people of all ages during this time.
Gary’s Story and Advices
People should produce content at scale – videos on LinkedIn and Youtube that will stay true forever.
Many people underestimate the value and wisdom of what others, especially the ones of higher age, can bring to the table. A grandma, uncle, or a mentor may not know how to dance on f*cking TikTok, but they can teach someone a ton of sh*t that one will not know for another two decades.
Gary wants people to realize that aged people have decades left, and that he wants the 15, 25, 35 and 45-year-olds to realize how much value they can extract from such individuals.
