Question: Who inspired you this year?
My answer: Gary Vaynerchuk
I’m a wine neophite, yet I find myself watching Gary’s online reviews obessesively. I like to think of myself as a positive, motivated, focused guy yet Gary’s online activity (endless tweets on twitter), and non stop production of killer content makes me question my own work ethic (this is a good thing). When everyone in our industry is freaking out about layoffs, and who they’re going to point the finger at Gary’s message never wanes “love, hustle, family”….
This guy is what the online industry should all aspire to be. How can you not love a guy that decided to proclaim a “Good People Day”.…awesome
When I saw Gary deliver this keynote at Web 2.0Expo it changed my life. Seriously. Watch it. Then watch it again. I even made my parents watch it. I made my colleagues watch it.
I nominate Gary Vaynerchuk as Online Man of the Year 2008
