Like, South by oh-nine.
I like all the different scenes, right?
Like when I’m fat and bitter.
You know, it’s kind of like those athlete videos,
like Jordan, Jeter.
It’s like a Nike video.
It’s kind of almost like that fuck you video.
Yeah, it’s kind of like —
– Start from the bottom, hustled your way up.
– Yeah, it’s the same old shit
because it’s my true narrative, which is like,
you think it’s because my dad gave me,
it’s like all the things that people are against you for.
It’s like — – Shove it in their face.
On my 30th birthday, I looked myself
in my rear view mirror as I was driving from New York
to New Jersey, and I said, “You’re not behaving
“to back up your own words.”
And eight weeks later, I started Wine Library TV on YouTube.
And started the process of changing my career.
I have massive empathy, It’s not so awesome right now.
You’re hoping for that thing. I get it.
I get it so much you can’t imgaine.
I get 10,000 emails a day of, “Can’t I just do this?”
No. You can’t.
If it was so easy.
If it was so damn easy,
don’t you think we’d all choose that?
– Do you know how many kids feel less than
because they didn’t have a chance to go to school.
They’re not this. They’re not that.
And then you look at someone like GaryVee, and he admits,
he said in public, that he got D’s and F’s,
and look at where he is now.
Do you know what kind of hope that creates?
– It’s a long game. I was told
betwen 7 years old and 18 year old that I lost.
That I was a loser becase this is what I got. F City, baby!
But when I saw F City, I knew inside
that this was not the game that I was gonna play.
I was patient. I ate crow in that 12-year period
while the market and the machine told me I wasn’t gonna win.
I knew what my outcome was.
And you may now be in your 20s and 30s and 40s.
And the machine, the marketplace might be telling you
that you’re gonna lose, but it is about staying the course
and putting in the work and positioning yourself
in the right position to go out and win.
You know why I’m sitting here right now?
‘Cause I outworked you. Zoom in.
I outworked you.
