Zach Bradshaw’s Profile of

Tim
Ferriss

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 Tim?

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.

Tim Ferriss 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 Tim

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.

How to Go To Bed Earlier [Life-Changing Habit #2]

Going to bed early has changed my life. It's the crucial other side of the "early to rise" coin. One supports the other. For me, becoming a morning person and taking my a$$ to sleep are both accomplishments. I understand if either of them seem trite to you. They are...

Yaaaaaaaaaaay! I made it to my second monthly personal growth post! A year from now, these posts will be a great resource.  Again, I'm all about brainwashing myself.  Repetition helps.  So I will use this this partially as a record of all of my favorite talks.  Last...
