I really believe in tripling down on your strengths. I am not a big fan of working on your weaknesses… ~ Gary V.   

This episode comes straight from the MMT archives and features the most candid Q&A session Gary Vaynerchuk has ever done, in front of an audience of friends and peers. He goes deep, speaking frankly about his approach to running VaynerMedia and scaling it from 650 to 1,000 people in under a year, how emotional intelligence is his greatest strength, and what he sees as the next big retail boom: Starbucks for meditation.

This is what happens when Gary Vee goes deep...

“You don’t need to make a million dollars a year in order to live like a millionaire." - Jayson Gaignard

Entrepreneurs are the some of the only people in this world who really have the privilege of true freedom. When done right, entrepreneurship can afford you the freedom of time, the freedom of money, the freedom of relationships and the freedom of purpose. We can create a life to do what we want, when we want, with whoever we want. That is an incredible gift!

So why then do most of us live a life of packed calendars? The fact that being busy in today’s society is often celebrated truly baffles me… Always on planes… Marriage in shambles... Don’t see the kids... Sleep 4 hours a night… That’s chaos, not clarity.

It’s not something we should be proud of...

“There is nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency something that should not be done at all.” - Peter Drucker

In today’s episode I’m going to challenge what I see as a religion in business... The religion of scale. Scaling has it’s benefits, but has it’s shortcomings as well. I call this a religion because entrepreneurs tend to have very strong attachments to this view point and get very defensive about it. 

So what is the Religion of Scale? It’s the belief that success is equal to, or measured solely by, your ability to scale your business by growing your team, doubling or tripling your revenue, going national or maybe even international, that bigger is always better.

“The bad news is that time flies. The good news is you're the pilot.” - Michael Altshuler

We often don’t make change in our lives until we reach a point of crisis. I’ve been guilty of this as well. Intellectually we only really get it when we’re staring death in the face or we’re facing short term deep pain. But by then it’s too late... we need to get ahead of it. And everyday life is deceptive, it allows us to believe our time is limitless on some level, but obviously it’s not.
