    An Interview: Gary Vaynerchuk on the Jim Rome Show

    An Interview: Gary Vaynerchuk on the Jim Rome Show

    LOVED loved loved being on my man Jim Rome's show. I talked about exactly when my desire to buy the New York Jets started, when I think that'll happen, and what my idea of the media landscape will be in 20 years. Keep an eye on Augmented and Mixed reality, because as technology gets smaller and more efficient, these two areas will start to matter a whole lot more... Just keep in mind that as you're hustling, it's not about the money or fame - it's about not complaining. If you're complaining, you're definitely not hustling your way to a better life. Really enjoyed this talk guys, let me know what you thought ;)
