I Still Don’t Know

I’m a reasonable man.  Yet, I still don’t know if Gary Vaynerchuk is a genius or a snake oil salesman; a web 2.0 Anthony Robbins, selling platitudes wrapped in charisma.

One thing is certain, I am on record saying that I would listen to Mark Burnett, producer of Survivor, who I saw speak at an IBM conference, read the phone book.  Vaynerchuk is creeping into the same territory. 

Ah, gotta love the cult of personality.

Great speech. Great ideas. He’s very inspiring and is right on- you have to work to get the things you want- TV, celebrity- none of that shit matters and I love that he’s pointing it out. Best part- “you don’t want to compete with me, no seriously”

His motives are still a little questionable though.
