Zach Bradshaw’s Profile of

Kanye
West

Gary Vaynerchuk is the first man the adult me could acknowledge as a “hero.”  Without Gary Vee, my hero profiles might not even exist.  Certainly, the whole idea of a G.O.A.T. Rank is a tribute to my admiration for him.

Why Kanye?

For the time being, this site is mostly just a data dump.  Over time, it may become more useful to the outside observer.  Who knows?

I don’t claim to be an expert on anyone I write about.

Hell, I hardly claim to be an expert on myself.

These profiles are largely for me.  I use them to record and reference.  In the future, I may make them more meaningful to the outside observer.

No guarantees.  Let’s start small.

True scorpio

This is an odd way to put it.  But it’s the only phrase that captures the entire bucket.  Gary thinks like a Scorpio.

Honey Empire

Many of my heroes talk about company culture.  Gary’s idea of a “Honey Empire” is one of the best.

Similar Industry

Most people know Gary as “that social media guy.”  Makes sense.  He’s one of—if not the—best at it on the planet.

Billion $ Dream

Gary wants to buy the Jets.  Big dream, but he has a practical plan for it.  Luckily, he is documenting the journey.

Kanye West Bio

Most people know Gary as “that social media guy.”

For me personally, he’s a lot more.

But I’ll get to that.  First, let’s just answer…

Who is Gary Vee?

Gary Vaynerchuk is a serial entrepreneur, currently acting as chairman and CEO of VaynerX and VaynerMedia, respectively.  He’s a well known social media personality who is likely to become a mainstream cultural icon before it’s all said and done.

He’s also going to buy the NY Jets.

Born in Babruysk, Belarus, Gary gives credit for his success to his family and upbringing.  An immigrant’s mindset and “perfect parenting” gave him the perspective and the self confidence to double down on his strengths.

As Seen By Me

More than anyone else:

Gary is the reason I started creating hero profiles.

Now that I’ve started, I see that his profile may be less useful than my other heroes to other people.  But his will likely always remain the most important to me.

I fucking love this dude.  He changed my life.

More accurately, he teamed up with Nahko to save my life.

I’m not quite sure when I found him.  I featured him all the way back in one of my first posts for Greensboro SEO Pro.

DailyVee Episode 101 was the first “Moticut” I ever used to start brainwashing myself.  Beyond that, I’ve listened to many a Gary Vee keynote, interview, and rant.

My Posts About Kanye

Gary makes an appearance in more of my posts than anyone else at this point.  That may never change.  There’s a reason he’s number one in my G.O.A.T. Rank.

Gary Vee’s 4 Ds Meeting Videos are AMAZING!!!

There's a lot of great business content online. I might have consumed an unhealthy amount of it already. Now, I'm more on the application side. So PBD at Valuetainment gets more of my watchtime than anyone else right now.  Actionable advice to the extreme. It might be...

How to Become a Morning Person [Life-Changing Habit #1]

Becoming a "morning person" has changed my life. Only time will tell, but it could go down as a top five factor to my future success. Learning how to wake up early wasn't easy. Until the second half of 2018, I've been a notoriously late sleeper. It started as a kid: I...
