  1. So if someone else tells me Im not good enough to be something i want, I just give up and be something else? sorry Garry, i see that as a problem and working on a problem is how you grow,

  2. The reason people want to be entrepreneurs is because people want freedom. Most people don't want to work for anyone. They want to wake up when they want to wake up. They don't need a degree or experience to start their own business around what they love. Being happy has a lot to do with not being under someone else.

  3. I never wanted to be an entrepreneur. I'm still a little embarrassed to call myself one (because until I'm rich and famous like Gary Vee, I just look like some brony kid trying to impress people).

    The reason why I made the choice to pursue my own business is because it's what makes me the happiest. I hate taking risks. I hate not having that safety of a steady weekly or biweekly paycheck, but in life, just as much as I could go under as an entrepreneur, I could find myself in the same situation if the company that I worked for went under. Then, not only did I waste time doing something I dreaded, but now I wouldn't even have a job. Sometimes I wish I could be a teacher or doctor or actuarial scientist, but I don't believe I would be as happy OR SUCCESSFUL as I hope to be by working on building my own franchise.

  4. I have known for so long that I just don't fit into a typical job. Entrepreneurship is the only way in this world for me. It sucks hearing Gary talk about entrepreneurship being a fad right now, which obviously it is, but because I came into it at the same time, it feels invalidating. I'm really excited though to be in the dirt when shit hits the fan and to continue grinding it out because this is what I'm meant and love to do. This was an awesome vid. Thanks Gary 🙂

  5. Unfortunately it is uncool to be a guidance counselor. I just quit that job to go it on my own. I am a good counselor. Gifted. I am organized. Gifted. A must as a high school guidance counselor. However, the public education system is so fucked that I have no words to describe it other than fucked. You are a counselor every day. Gifted. Kids need people like you, not someone who is chained behind a desk and handcuffed to the system. Quit my job to whittle wood. Happy as Goddam hell!

  6. I've come to realise it takes risk (a back up plan if it doesn't work), patience and a lot of graft! 🙂

    Can't wait bring on the process 🙂 need to pick up the Askgaryvee book 🙂

  7. So to sum it up we should try something out and don't be afraid to fail because it's a learning experience and go for something else you think you're really good at and makes you happy
