Gary Vaynerchuk is a Belarusian American serial entrepreneur, author and a social media icon who came to the limelight after launching a very successful wine e-commerce business, Winelibrary.com.

Born on 14th November 1975 in Belarus, Gary Vaynerchuk and his family migrated to United States when he was three and lived in a studio apartment with nine members of his family. His father worked in a liquor store, saving everything he earned for 5 years with the intention of buying one for himself. Gary would later join his father in the family business at 22 and push the annual revenues of the business from $4 million to $45 million in a short time.

Growing up an entrepreneur, Gary made up to $3000 every weekend from his 8 lemonade stands and selling baseball cards. But his father made him work in the liquor store for $2 an hour, a job he hated with a passion.
In the wine business, Gary started a YouTube wine show; Wine Library TV, filming 1000 episodes in over 5 years and became a renowned wine critic.

He attracted a huge online following and gained knowledge about using the Internet to grow businesses, a factor that enabled him build a modern-day media and communication company, VaynerX.

Alongside writing best seller books, Gary has an derisive style of public speaking that leaves his audience motivated, thought-provoked and sometimes irritated. Since 2014, Gary has focused in financing and incubating other companies.

Gary is a father of two; a daughter; Misha Eva and a son, Xander Avi. He is married to Lizzie who he often showers with praises as a major influence in his life and career.

He prides himself in being a marathon kind of person; not one seeking quick Return On Investment. He prefers to observe and be sure before investing in any business.
