Entrepreneurship Advice for Young By Gary Vaynerchuk


In the 1980’s entrepreneurship had no place for youth. It was difficult.  Taking a business from 3 million dollar to 60 million dollar and contributing it to family, Mr. Vaynerchuk moved to a different entrepreneurship game from his earlier venture Wine Library on YouTube.

Some of his tips for the young entrepreneurs are:

Gary VaynerchukCEO is the jockey, Business is the Horse: Entrepreneurs run business in a way that it evolves and adapts to the changing times. Adjusting to the reality of what the business has to do is vital. The biggest fear for today’s entrepreneurs is they are working either for money or just because ‘it’s cool to be an entrepreneur,’ not because they cannot live without it.

Patience: An instant gratification proves to be a loss as life is long and it is important to have patience in whatever a person is doing.

How Much Do you Enjoy Losing: Not caring about what other people think is important as failures happen all the time.
