    He's a typical east coast type-a personality. My personal observation is that that personality doesn't work well in the western US, so I don't strive to be like him. Not that westerners aren't ambitious, but they are ambitious in a different way. Westerners are more likely to be inclusive openminded and open to trying new things, whereas east coasters are more into ladder climbing traditional routes (like how original is opening an ad agency in NYC?????????????????????????)

    His Youtube channel and his personnal brand is its networth & business guys.

    He get clients from being well known on Youtube and word of mouth.
    He get sales of his products because he's known on internet.
    He's a good salesman to be honest and you'll be able to find himself telling the opposite each time : "hustle hard, on weekends also" "rest, take breaks, play hard", but that he tells it less often.

    The moral is, what he says is real, but at the end he's maybe here to help you by what he say, but he's also here to keep you under his belt and when there's something to sell, you'll be here for him ;)

    I'm a fan, but I'm aware it's mostly marketing. He's very motivational and always persuading action. Take the good and ignore the bad is what I do with him.

    Just came across this inspiring vid of Gary from some years back when he's bald:
    View: https://www.facebook.com/gary/videos/10153147415528350/


    Start at 1.20.
    Then, go to 2.20 where he actually picks up the phone and hustles in front of your eyes lol

    This vid is really useful for people who're scared of the phone (like me).
    The vid shows that you don't have to be "perfect", "suave" or "smooth" when talking on the phone (he's pretty smooth here but his sentence construction is a bit messy at times as compared to a recited script).

    I wonder if there's some courses or videos that teaches people how to talk like Gary V and to grow that kind of assertive confidence.

    Without being to analytical there are few things you can take away:

    -He had zero anxiety before picking up the phone. His fear of looking like a coward in front of the camera outweighed his fear of rejection. It allowed him to push forward, most people can't get through this most important step

    -He sounded genuine on the phone, not some cheesy sales person trying to "take" but showed mutual benefit. It did not sound like he was reading a script.

    -He was enthusiastic about the service

    -He provide actual "numbers" which sparked interest

    -He kept the commitment very low, He was only prospecting to see if there was interest which put the other person at ease

    -He never argued but deflected objections. Agreeing with the other person on the phone is better than telling them how wrong they are when they are not interested.

    On the other hand, I think there are a lot of things he could have done better such as actually having some pointers for the viewers. I think its a mistake to blindly pick up the phone and start calling random companies without looking up some basic info such who the owner is and what service they provide, it could have ended really badly with him.
