Who is Gary Vaynerchuk and Net Worth

Gary Vaynerchuk is a guy who knows what it’s like to hustle and I really respect him as an entrepreneur. Ever since I started Connect for a Cause, I knew I wanted him to be an advisor, but it’s probably been a long road. Sometimes the problem with hanging out with the people who can really change your game is that everyone else knows they’re influential too.


I’ve tried several times to set up a meeting, but traditional networking methods don’t always work with a guy who’s contacted by hundreds of people every day. I had to get creative.

A few weeks ago, I learned that Gary was assembling Soldier Joe for one of his many projects. Suddenly the light went out. I ran up to my attic and found this…






which I turned into this…

What led to this…

Meeting with Gary Vee

Six weeks after I tweeted a photo and offered to trade my Joes for a coffee chat, I was sitting in a New York espresso shop talking about my ConnectForaCause idea to Gary Vaynerchuk! I told him the story of how Iscratched my own itchin creating Connect for a Cause and that I really wanted him to be an advisor. He liked the GI Joes and the concept and gave some great advice on starting a company. Hopefully in the near future you will see him offer some Get Involved meetings! With a net worth of Gary Vaynerchuk now in excess of 160 million and a huge following, I can’t believe this plan worked.
