Interestingly enough Gary does get behind some young life coaches..

What do you think is the difference between one who has chops and doesn't at a young age?
It's not your age, but how much you can help people.

Some people have done and learned a lot at younger ages than others.

Some people are great at coaching, even though they are young.

Some people with boatloads of experience are just not good at coaching.

Don't coach me on being a parent if you don't have kids, or on running a business if you've never run a business.



I do think people underestimate the value they can offer.

Maybe you are 24 and had to overcome bullying or worse. You might be better able to coach someone else to overcome those things than I would, even though I'm 20 years older than you.

You don't need to be an expert.

But you do have to add value.

Age definitely doesn't matter when it comes to helping people and knowing your shit.

These girls totally impressed me. I thought they'd just be silly, but they're not.

15 years old and already kicking a$$. I want them to be my music ly coach!

Thats the perfect answer given by Gary.
I think you should not teach unless you have instructor level skills.
Unless your intention is to make money without giving REAL value.

I think the only exception is to be a curator of others contents and share it. Such as book reviews, or reviewing what others tell.

Also, to really build a brand you gotta demolish it first in public (face-smash before facebook, the recent incident with Volkswagen to introduce their better hybrid/electric models) , then rebuild it when everyone is watching.

Good video, @Andy Black!
Thanks for introducing me to Gary V. I thought he was a 'rah rah' guru until THIS.
Surely a soldier can't become a knight in shining armour until he has killed some dragons!

BTW, how did you enable the youtube video link to send me right to the particular part instead of the start of the video? I didn't know if it could be done until now.... :]

So this is just for building a personal brand, not a business brand right?
Great question!

Would you get a website built from the company with no portfolio, or the one with hundreds of testimonials?

My take is to focus on doing good work, and then talking about it afterwards.


One of my all time favourite lines:

"Tell me what you've done and I'll tell you who you are."

^^^ That's not "Tell me what you're going to do..."
