Meeting Gary Vaynerchuk: How to Meet Your Personal Heroes and Learn Directly From Them

I open up my email and a sense of excitement rushes through my body.

I’m buzzing.

Gary Vaynerchuk, NY Times Best Selling Author, Founder of Vanynermedia (a social media brand who works with brands like GE, PepsiCo, Green Mountain Coffee), someone who took his family business from $3 million to $45 million a year, and all around good dude has just agreed to do an interview with me!

If you would have told me I would be talking with Gary on the phone 5 years ago, I would have thought you were crazy.

The idea of talking with Gary on the phone seemed impossible to me back then.

Nevertheless, as someone who has dedicated their life to being the best Modern Day Hypnotist, someone who creates moments of transformation where the impossible becomes possible for my personal one on one clients, I believe it is my personal duty to learn from some of the best minds in the world so that i can better serve my clients.

The problem was, I knew nobody. I had no real network.

So, I went along with the first logical idea that came to mind and this very idea became my formula for consistently infiltrating the world of high profile mentors.

Formula for How to Infiltrate the World of High Profile Mentors?

1) Find the person you would like to meet.

2) Reach out to them and offer to interview them for an audience.

I’ve used the above formula to learn from the best minds in the hypnosis and NLP community, and I used it to land this interview with Gary. The formula works because it appeals to a mentor’s self interest; it gives them something valuable (an audience) in exchange for their time.

If you ask for something, you are most likely to get it if you give something valuable in return.

In this case, Gary was gracious enough to give me an interview and it was spectacular. By listening you will learn:

  • Gary’s mindset when dealing with the toughest challenges.
  • Gary’s most important piece of business advice.
  • The importance of embracing your competitive nature.
  • The sense of responsibility that drives Gary towards utilizing his own unique talents.
  • How to use gratitude to deal with tough days.

Learning directly from High Profile Mentors is possible.  I’ve given you the blueprint.  Go out there and make it happen.

    Fantastic Martin. When this happened and you told me about it, I was inspired to talk to my role model, Andrew Warner, founder of
    When I spoke to him, he gave me a one on one private coaching session where he showed me my own challenges in building my own dream business.
    If it were not for you, I would have doubted my own self importance to even speak to Andrew; what did I have to offer Andrew?
    It turns out, he had something to offer me which was instrumental for me to look forward with COURAGE, not stories.
    When I told Andrew about you inspiring me and this interview, he asked me to share it with him when you would publish it and so I will share it with Andrew..
    We all touch other’s lives and our own when we step out of the comfortzone and become unstoppable because we are led by what is possible instead of impossible.
    Thank you for sharing..
