Gary Vaynerchuk: Legacy vs. Currency

June 29, 2009

Another fantastic video from personal branding superstar Gary Vaynerchuk. I love how Gary brings up topics that the vast majority of the business world has never specifically stated, yet are so simple. Common sense, even. I guess they are very much like a great personal development book in that sense. Today Gary passionately responded to the “legacy vs. currency” debate and there’s no question on which side of the fence he falls. Do you spend your time and resources on creating short-term profit and “quick-wins?” Or do you selflessly build relationships, network, and perfect the purpose of *your* personal brand? Watch it here.

I’ve thought a lot about what I believe my purpose is – to encourage as many people as I possibly can that yes, they can live a better life – but does every detail of what I do on a daily basis support that legacy? Good question! I hope it does, but will definitely be meditating on the topic in the days and weeks to come.

Exciting stuff.
