Vaynerchuk, who has a net worth of $10 million, gives drops some sage fucking wisdom when it comes to dwelling, pondering, crying, and complaining: “it doesn’t do shit.”
“You can cry, you’re just gonna lose,” the entrepreneur says in a video.
According to Gary, the only people who give a shit when you complain are “the other fucking losers around you” and the “sick broken parent that secretly wants to hold you down so that you’re not more successful than them.”
