I bumped into Gary Vaynerchuck (aka Garyvee) in front of the ATM machine at SXSW. He was just about to hop on stage. A small group of fans followed him around - like young kids chasing a soccer ball all over the field. It was kind cool.
Gary's not as abrasive in person as his online persona. He's actually a friendly, likable good looking guy. Charm.
In his presentation, Gary covered a range of topics on entrepreneurship. He answered questions from the audience and gave a few hugs. His base loves him and he's ready to reciprocate.
At one point someone started to explain how she was running 3 businesses and was frustrated with slow growth. Gary cut her short and said, "When you run three businesses you run none..."
On Medium this morning there was a post from Gary. He alluded to the dangers of FOMO and young entrepreneurs pursuing too many businesses at the same time.
"You should triple down on one thing instead of being half pregnant on nine."
If you chase two rabbits, you will not catch either one.
