Gary Vaynerchuk Keynote @ RE/MAX Annual Convention 2011

December 2nd, 2011 by Jeremy

My Notes:

  • Learned to speak English through Scooby Doo and Price is Right
  • Learned why Gary became a Jets Fan
  • When you are 12 and you have 10k under your bed and you are not selling weed, you are doing a good job.
  • Set up a lemonade stand, collected/sold baseball cards, and then it clicked that collecting wine and being an expert in it was his next ticket.
  • ’98-’05 Grew from a 4 to a 45 million dollar business
  • The Thank You Economy is about listening.  Start listening and don’t do so much talking.
  • People used to spend millions of dollars doing focus groups.  Now people are doing it for free and it isn’t biased (not in a focus group room etc).
  • You don’t go back to what hurt you (Charlie Sheen > more cocaine).
  • We just lived through the big box era, we are going to an era where people go to where there is a relationship.

What did I miss?  What do you think?

Steve Jobs and NeXT

November 29th, 2011 by Jeremy

My notes/quotes from the video…

  • There is a revolution in software going on now.  Simulated learning environments: You can’t give students expensive lab environments for their tests but you can simulate them on the PC.
  • More important than building a product, we are in the process of architecting a company that will hopefully be much more incredible than the sum of its parts.
  • One of the things that made Apple great was in its early days it was built from the heart.That is like a bomb run, you don’t change your target when you are on a bomb run.
  • There needs to be someone who is the “keeper or reiterator” of the vision because there is just a ton of work and a lot of times when you have to walk a thousand miles, when you take the first step, it looks like a long ways.  It helps when there is someone there saying “we are one step closer”.  The goal definitely exists, it isn’t just a mirage out there.  So in a thousand and one little ways, the vision needs to be reiterated.  I do that a lot.
