Considering how much hype Gary Vee has gotten over the last year it's obvious people (including myself) would be excited about this. I got this as my free audiobook from Audible because fucked if I'm gonna pay for what I probably already knew from following Gary on social. It was nice to hear him narrating his own book but my god he is so annoying to listen to. Every fucking sentence is read EXACTLY THE SAME WAY. Seriously, you sound like a 3rd grader in reading class. Furthermore, while I like hearing 1st person stories of people who "made it", Jesus Christ do they also become tedious. "I was a nobody bla bla bla hated my job bla bla bla living in my parents house bla bla bla and then I started doing internet stuff, following my passion bla bla bla and then KABLAMMO suddenly shit started happening. Wow, never heard that one before! Oh except maybe A MILLION TIMES! Goes something like, "once I was just a loser like you, and then I followed my dreams and TA-DAAAA I'm successful now!" Please spare me. We get it, the internet is a huge opportunity. Content, engagement, hard work etc etc will get you a long way. I had to stop listening once he kept going on about Musically - WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT SHIT!?! I almost gagged how cheesy that platform is. Oh and saying "never bet against Facebook"? Were you born yesterday? They are INFORMATION WHORES, selling your data to the highest bidder. Its one thing to use it for business but as for personal I would avoid at all costs. The biggest thing that pissed me off was the "I was born with Alpha DNA." Ok shut up now Gary, you are really sounding like a twat. We got your message, now go away and enjoy your millions of dollars
