Five Minutes With Jack Ramblings Of An Insane Internet Marketer

July 21, 2010

I think Gary Vaynerchuk and I are Long Lost Brothers

Much of what I say and have said about business for years is so in sync with what Vaynerchuk talks about it may seem that we are plagiarizing each other.  This time though at least I got the message out first!  On July 13th, I did Episode 7 of Five Minutes with Jack called, “Don’t Deny Your True Nature“, it was in response to someone that said following your passion is bad advice for most people and that someone has to do the hard dirty jobs.

So on January 20th Gary Vaynerchuck releases the video below.  If you ever get a chance to talk to Gary tell him that he needs to answer my emails and we need to talk.  Once you watch Gary’s video (which is stellar as always) watch my episode 7 again and while there are some difference, I mean he doesn’t use a snake now does he notice how similar the objections and responses are.

By the way I am about to tape a few more episodes, sorry about none on Monday and Tuesday but I was off at Big Bend National Park doing a Project with ITS Tactical.

    Heh… awesome. I love that guy– so annoying and so good.
    I’ve said it before Jack, you’re a fusion of Gary V, Tim Ferris, and “the 7 habits”. I think your subject and passion is way more important than any of the others– but the way you’ve built your brand and biz along the way is what really smacked me in the forehead.
    I think it would be great to open a small forum component here, so that we could perhaps all “mastermind” with each other and examine our respective businesses and their trajectory together.
    I know I could use some help!

    Forums are coming soon, anyone interested in being a moderator and having access to set them up. It is part of buddy press I just haven’t set any up yet.

    I love how the Internet makes all memes coalesce and, for lack of a better term, have sex with each other :p

    10-20 years ago survivalists would have lived in their own little walled-off mental garden and had no contact with marketing people, business people, self-helpers, economists, etc. Now everyone is coming together across the disciplinary boundaries. It’s the bee’s knees.

    Sadly, I didn’t invent the meme of memes having sex:
