– Gary!
– Hey man! – Nice to meet you.
– Pleasure to see you. – How are you?
– Such a pleasure, well. – [Man] I feel like
you’re a long lost friend. – Hey, good to meet you.
– [DRock] How are you? – I see your
face most days so … – I appreciate it. (rap music) – I haven’t spent zero
time in Asia, it’s crazy. Just serendipity, you know? – Well, we’re gonna change that. – [Gary] Yeah, that’s
about to change for sure. (man laughs) (“Callisto” by Alice Fremont) – You know what DRock,
I definitely not vlogging in August when
I’m with family. I hope we get the
proper brand credit for bringing good weather. (group laughter) So we’ll meet at 7:30. Got it. 7:45. 7:45. We’ll walk it? – Yeah.
– [Gary] Awesome. Hong Kong baby. I fucking love it. I really do. What? – [DRock] The humidity
is killing me! – [Gary] Good, I like it. I like you dealing
with adversity DRock. A little adversity,
it’s good for you. – How are you? – Good, I came
here last Thursday. – Last Thursday? (background noise
drowns out answer) – Have you spent time here? – No, actually. – Is this is
your first trip here? – I came here when
I was 12 for math challenge. – So this is
your first trip here. – Exactly. So it’s– – Cool. – But it’s my first– – Did you say
for math challenge? (Raisa laughs) – You’re such a nerd. Everybody in the middle, to
your point, is in real trouble. Production companies that
know how to make good content, but are stuck in the
middle, not super premium, they’re trying to
make volume, they’re dead. And then if
you’re making, you know, the cost of entry of
making content, to your point, is not very high if you’re new and you’ve only
come from this world. (“I Would Be Nowhere” by Dyalla) – You know how many
people run a business? How many people do you
think run Credit Suisse? – [Man 2] (laughs) I’m going
to pass on that question. – The answer is a lot
less than any of us realize. What you start realizing, at
least that I start to realize, is it’s unbelievable how few
people actually run a company no matter it’s size. You know they have that
thing where you can only have 150 contacts or something? – Oh yeah. – I have a funny feeling, there’s a
business version of that where there’s only
six to eleven people that can actually
run a company for real. (“I Would Be Nowhere” by Dyalla) – Just completely obsessed
with suffocating excuses. – [Man 3] Uh-huh. – [Gary] Because then
good stuff happens. – [Man 3] Uh-huh. – Excuses are the currency
that allow you to not act. – [Mary] Huge fan. – Oh thank you. – [Mary] Huge fan, well done. Thank you so much for–
– [Mary] What’s your name? – Mary.
– Mary, nice to meet you. Thanks for saying hello.
– Nice to meet you as well. Take care, bye.
– Yeah, thank you. Yes.
– Hello. I’m sorry. – Hi.
– Hi. – How are you doing?
– How are you? – Big fan.
– Thank you I would’ve done, I had
a wine business up in China and actually went–
– Is that right? – [Man 4] How you feeling? – [Gary] I’m
feeling really good. – Must’ve been a long flight. – I got to tell you,
I’m obsessed with long flights. (“I Would Be Nowhere” by Dyalla) – I started Wine Library TV
in February of 2006 and probably summer of
’05 is when I basically said, “I’m no longer a liquor store
owner, wine store owner, “I’m gonna learn everything
about this Web 2.0 thing.” And somewhere in ’06, it
became very much on my radar. I remembered it for a long time. I did a wine event at Technorati
as the help pouring, like the first, you know
what DRock, we really need to talk about this. The first five or six
tech events I ever did, I was basically the bar. I basically, I email,
I’ll never forget this, I emailed Leo Laporte. Leo Laporte did a Jaiku. Do you know what Jaiku was? Jaiku was one of
Twitters two competitors and I was in New Jersey
and I didn’t even know how big or small meet-ups were. I emailed them cold
because I saw it somewhere. I was like, “Can I
pour wine at the events?” So I flew to San Francisco
and stood behind a table like this and just poured wine. (“I Would Be Nowhere” by Dyalla) You should be
betting the farm as I am, on having a skill or a briefing
that penetrates my morning. My mornings,
news, my first four minutes for all your business, this
is what I’m excited about, to play in Asia and
anywhere else in the world. There’s certain things
that are just core human. And then you have culture, but if you keep
dwindling it down to core human, there’s always opportunities
if you understand it. Time, is core human. Buying and selling time
is a big fucking business. Sound, audio, is about
to be the next frontier and it’s open. Now, it’s kind of open. It’s open for a
lot of us who build on top of infrastructure. Like Amazon, Apple,
Google are not gonna give up what they have. But when you start
looking at things like one in every five
Google search engines, searches are done by voice. Google needs to
be scared shitless of Amazon winning Alexa and
I don’t know what’s happening in Asia with voi-, I
mean what’s happening in Asia? Has voice triggered yet? Do we have Alexa
skills, is anybody– – [Man 5] Yeah, Nava,
which is the company online – [Man 6] They are launching a
speaker kind of like– – Huge! To me– – The interesting
thing about Asia is a voice is already a very big
communication platform. So WeChat really
blew up voice because they had voice messages
before WhatsApp did. – Yep, understood. – The reason is
because of the language. So people used to the voice
thing, they usually activate it. – Correct, so now
consumption of voice, so to me, every single person that
brushes their teeth in the world will be
listening to information. I am obsessed with the first
seven minutes of your day. That is gonna be won by voice. It’s gonna be passive
consumption for a generation until the next technology. So, I’ve already got an
Alexa briefing, GaryVee 365. It’s either motivational,
it’s informational. To me, that’s where
media companies can win some interesting arbitrage that
hasn’t been thought of yet. It’s the same old game. We were going for blogging and
email and RSS feeds, right? Before that, I was doing email. Then it became
Twitter followers. What’s so amazing for all of us, is if you understand the pattern
behaviors, it never ends. You just have
good eras and bad eras, you just got to stay alive. (“I Would Be Nowhere” by Dyalla) – [Man 7] (inaudible) is a
global high school boot camp for high school students
to become entrepreneurs. – Good, one thing
that you’ll learn, you’re so young right now, you guys are so young right now. You don’t realize… How old
is everybody here, 14, 15, 16? – [Man 7] 12 to 17.
– 12 to 17? So one thing that will blow
your mind is that I sit here right now with
you at 41 years old and I feel like
I’m just like you. I remember how I felt
at 14 and it feels exactly the same way I feel at 41. You can’t imagine
how much fire and passion and how young you feel at 41. When I was 14, 15, 16,
17, 41 seemed like dead. (group laughter) I get it, it wasn’t
that long ago, right? When you get to 41
and you realize you feel exactly the same
way you feel right now. Then you start
betting on patience and I think patience is a very
important part of this game. – Can you elaborate
on that, what does that mean? – I mean I think a lot of
young people make decisions that are detrimental
in the long term because they want
instant gratification cause they don’t
realize how long life is. – Big thank you to Gary,
thank you so much. – You’re welcome. (group applause) – Awesome. Yes, of course. Awesome. Thank you guys! – [Man 7] This is
Zoe from Princess. – Hi Zoe, such a pleasure. – [Both] How are you? – Come on guys, goodbye,
goodbye, goodbye. Bye. – Bye, thank you. – The influencers. – Yeah, the KOLs. – Yeah, that’s right,
it’s a different term. What is it again,
it’s key opinion. – Leaders, yeah. – And how does it say, kah? – KOL. – So the KOLs, are they
more often cross platform and they’re big on
four or five platforms or one or two? – Cross.
– Cross platform. What about audio? – Audio, yeah, well
we’ve got some, so online radio kind of thing, so it’s also
another like live streaming, it’s just audio based. And then here, you can, you
know, here are some audio stuff. Like when I. (app speaks in a
foreign language) You see here, you
can buy books, right? This is ebooks and
then, this one is cool. There’s six people, it’s
like a bit blurry but then. – [Gary] No, I’d say it’s
good, let me see it. – [Woman] People can
speak at the same time. – [Gary] And you can
mute somebody or not. – [Woman] It’s like a YouTube
kind of video so that’s about the stream
like video streams, right? So I think this
is more old school. (“Quel X Pyramids” by Jan Ace) – Gary?
– Yes. – Art.
– [Gary] Art, how are you? – I’ve been following
you since I worked here. – [Gary] Thank you so much. Domination. So fun, nothing like
new frontiers, you know? Thank you. (Jordan laughs) Good, thrilled to be here,
first time in Hong Kong, excited for Rise. Every one of us doesn’t
have to be seven feet tall. Now, the problem is a lot of
people can’t be entrepreneurs. Like it’s hard to be a
successful entrepreneur. – [Man 8] How is
your night going? – [Gary] Hi. – I come here to be
volunteer to see you. – [Gary] Thank you very much,
what’s your name? – [Both] Crystal. – Nice to meet you. – Can you … – Picture? – Yeah, picture and sign here. – [Gary] Yes, okay, no problem. – [Man 8] Gary’s gonna be
hitting the stage. – Can we go over
there to the Rise. – [Gary] Yes, sure of course. – [Man 8] Volunteer Crystal? – [Crystal] Yeah, I’m
Crystal from Shenzhen. – Such a pleasure,
Crystal, thank you so much. – [Gary] Can you film? Thanks, DRock. – Thanks DRock. To me, I think TV or
social, these mobile devices, need to start debating the
notion of super high quality mixed with bad
lighting and bad audio. I think people yearn for– – Authenticity. – I think so and I think,
you know, I think listen, there’s a place for
six hour movies like Avatar and there’s a place for a six
second bad lighting selfie. And I think they all
work as long as the message is extremely strong. – [Man 9] Have you always been a big swearer, like her? I’m a swearer
myself, I have to say. – [Gary] Yeah,
quite a bit, I mean… Hey, how are you? – [Woman 2] Hi Gary. – [Gary] Hey, how are you?
– [Man 9] For you, sir. – This for me?
– [Man 9] For you, sir. (crowd cheers) – Hello. How are you guys? Alright, I’m ready to go,
who’s got a question? To me the one good
thing about the Asian market is there’s no
shortage of fintech companies. One thing that will
resonate for everybody here, it’s something I’ve been
thinking a lot more about. I’m stunned at people’s want to convince people of things. Selling to the unsellable
is the great waste of time. Guys, thank you so much. (crowd cheers) (“Quel X Pyramids” by Jan Ace) – Gary, woo. – Thank you, thank you.
– [Gary] You’re welcome. – Hi Gary, Gary. – Gary can I
have one photo please? – [Gary] Of course. – Thanks. – [Man 10] Gary, can
I have a fist pump? Thank you man. – Of course, brother.
– Yeah, you’re awesome. – [Gary] Thank you man,
thank you brother. – Check it out. – Hi, Gary, this
is about my question. Do you mind taking it? (men mumbling) – You know,
I always tell entrepreneurs, and really, people like
embrace your differences because they’re your advantages. I mean, I don’t believe
that video is the answer for everybody but
I do believe that video has the biggest upside
to impact one’s business. It’s a pleasure. How’s it going, thank you. There’s just
enormous opportunity. That’s clear as day. – It’s like every
startups pitch, right? Anything times a
billion is still a large number. – It’s true,
man, but the problem is live streaming
apps in mainland China. Government doesn’t
like how fast you’re moving to censor, you’re out. – Yeah. – There’s a 150 of ’em a
year ago, there’s six now. Like, you know? I think it’s tough
enough to win with consumer. When you have the
added element of government? Those are some
interesting dynamics. – [Man 11] In Hong Kong,
Mr. Gary Vaynerchuk. (audience cheers and applause) – Hello, Hong Kong. (audience cheers) What is completely misunderstood
is you don’t get to be the judge of quality content. The audacity of the media or thought leaders or successful individuals
or just a person that they get to judge
what is quality content, has been the opening that so many people
can take advantage of. Content is subjective.
Thank you. (audience applause and cheers) Thank you. You never waver, it’s
no different than muscles. You have to do it
every fucking day. – It’s a process, right? – It’s every day, it’s
every day, just a mindset. Take care of yourself. The way you get more customers is buy under-priced attention. – [Man 12] Got it.
– Period. – [Man 12] Got it, I will
email you tonight, for sure. – Take care man, yeah. No, it’s alright. – Thank you so much really. – [Gary] You’re welcome,
thank you for saying that. – [Man 13] She’s awesome. – [Gary] Hi, how are you? – I’m absolutely
delighted to meet you. – Thank you so much,
it’s such a pleasure. (speaks in a foreign language) You do, Hillary, thank
you so much, I’m so flattered. You guys ready? – I’ve really loved
your content for a long time and it’s helped me out
so much since I’m working on my own startup. – I’m so proud of you,
that’s amazing. How old are you?
– I’m 12. – Amazing, what
are you working on? – I’m working on
a language startup. So what we’re
doing is, what I’m doing is social language learning
for kids where we connect native speakers with
learners for them to interact and learn from each other. – I love it,
where do you guys live? – Hong Kong. – Hong Kong.
– [Man 14] I’m from Singapore. – Very nice. – [Man 14] Yeah, I’m still
waiting for you to come. – I’m coming in October. It’s so nice to meet
you, such a pleasure Hillary. Thank you, congratulations,
you did a good job. Bye, Hillary,
I hope to see you soon. Bye Alexis. – [All] Bye. – [Gary] Life’s funny, bro. The number one ROI of
conferences is engaging with the other attendees
so yes, I think that if I’m willing to tell
people not to watch me and go meet other people,
it means it’s a huge ROI. It’s coming, so if I could be
helper, you know, take care. – Thank you, thank you. – We’ll talk soon, take care. – Just one question. – Yes. – So how is health is
very important to business. – Health? – Health, your personal health is very important
for entrepreneurship. – If you die,
you’re out of business. – (laughs) If you die,
(laughs), thank you Gary. – You’re welcome. (laughs) (“Renaissance” by Chad Price) – Hi Gary. – You well? – Yeah, things are great. – It’s good to see you, I was
happy to see your name on. – [Woman 3] David, nice
to meet you, come with us. – [David] My wife… – [Gary] Completely blown away,
like it was like it was one of those few times in my life
where it was instantaneous as soon as I hit the ground. – [Man 14] This is
your kind of place, this sort of positive energy.
– A 100%, 100%. In a world where,
especially Instagram, there’s a narrative being
painted around entrepreneurship that is so ridiculous that I became passionate about showing the truth. To be very, very, very
frank, two core things. One, I felt that the
vlog and all of the content I’m able to produce
from the vlog would be a disproportional advantage
for me as a media company as an arbitrage to brand
awareness and number two, this is the thing
I would’ve learned from if I was watching it at 13
’cause I was a bad student but I’m very good visually. (jazz music) It’s a really unique town. – It was really
nice to meet you. – Yeah, real pleasure. Good to see you.
– All the best. – We’ll talk to you soon,
talk to you soon. I’m exhausted,
I’m finished, I’m really finished. I’m out.

  1. exciting to see these first few meetings in the far east for vaynermedia. Feels like we're witnessing the start of something big. Good luck on your new ventures, Gary.

  2. hey I’m trying to start a social media group
    we would simply work off each other to build large followings

    (having an audience would be great for all of us)

    nothing needed, just an OK

  3. Hey Gary! I live in Napa and I've bought bottles of wine and a case and I'm trying to sell them to China Via a Alibaba.
    Have you done anything like that in your business ?
    Anything helps

  4. hit 19:00 and thank me later!! Wonderful!

  5. Gary looked so exhausted!

  6. "it's everyday bro"- Gary Vee x Jake Paul LMAO

  9. Wait till you get to Singapore Gary, you'll love it! People have a natural entrepreneurial/go-getter attitude with hard work instilled in them since young. Competitive society with no-nonsense approach.

  16. if you die you're out of business :o) lmfao!!!!!!!

  17. 17:00 Gary cuts to the quick cracking a joke to answer a question. Still bouncy and with good humour after a long day. Respect.

  18. Gary finally in Asia. Please come to Vietnam one day

  19. Great stuff man! Our Youtube channel is doing well after much documentation (per your advice). Thanks again brother!

  20. Hanging at METTA HK

  21. YO WTF THAT KID IS !2 SHES MAKING AN APP?! IM 16 and im poop

  22. I learned alot from your daily vee's and I am always glad to see a new video of you. Right at this moment I am trying to gain traction and keep my momentum as I am building my youtube channel. It's a necessary step for me to complete the goals I have in my mind. Thanx Gary!

  23. Gary, you rocks in Asia!! Hope to see you one day at Malaysia..

  24. Global!!!! So rad to watch you continue to grow, Bro. Grateful to have someone like you and your content to learn from.

  25. Goddam that opening frame had me looking for my glasses! #Foggy

  26. Wow that girl Hilary is incredibly smart. She's going to dominate whatever she does in life. So happy to see kids that motivated and ambitious.

  27. i like listening to your vlogs because it really reshapes my attitude toward the business and when I speak to business people. thanks gary.

  28. what's the deal with the dislikes??

  29. Alibaba lunched the Asian Alexa. Google it. Cheaper and even better 😂

  30. How important ia your health for business?
    Gary: If you die you are out. Of business. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  31. Last comment for this video, amazing content 😊

  32. What app is Gary watching around 10:00?

  33. If you die, your'e out of business. Nice laugh – liked that part. Made me laugh.

  34. Wow, how on earth does this get SOO many thumbs down? First off that amount is just weird, secondly this was one of the better daily vees that I've seen. Baffled.

  35. Google will be more a factor due to their searching algorithims. Alexa is made to sell product. if Amazon can get Into the database game as far as research then I'll take it seriously

  36. Noooooo i've been there about a week before you!sad can't meet you in person..

  37. Damnn.. GoJek, Indonesian Unicorn



    Who's with me?







  45. "If you die you're out of business" might be the best quote in DailyVee's history!

  46. Gary's days are definitely longer than 24 hours. That's his real arbitrage. (Hopefully I'm using that word correctly. Gary uses it so much I'd thought I'd give it a try)

  47. Never been to Asia? Well next for you should be Singapore and for sure TOKYO!
    Bangkok should also be a great stop for you. You can stick in a trip to Australia afterward if you wanted to economize that part of the world. Outside of Asia ON another note it's always good to get to Abu Dhabi in UAE. That's another city that's on the rise globally in it's own way and then Dubai is just 45 mins down the highway.
    Next Vayner office hmmmm….. Middle East has that Tax free zone areas there too…

  48. Audio now, visual next — clear

  49. can anyone find the link to the song "Quel x Pyramids" by Futuregoats

  50. Do I smell a dislike bot or what's goin on here?

  51. If you die you're out of business 🙂 hahaahahahaha

  52. Leonardo DiCaprio 13:35

  53. You got to appreciate the level of innovation and problem solving that goes into creating something for the Asian market that involves communication. The level of complexity regarding these apps to make them user friendly is something that would baffle most western devs

  54. @GaryVee what does it feel like to have someone like the person at 11:50 be that excited to meet you? You really made her day!

  55. UUUGGGHHH that crystal girl at 11:37 <3 so cute

  56. Are you going something with GOJEK?

  57. Can't wait until you get to Singapore in October!!!

  58. In the scene where Gary is looking at the different voice apps it seems that people within the app are much more comfortable with chatting with anyone/random than we would be here in the US. I have this intuition that tells me that the Asian market has adopted the "death of privacy in return for connectivity" much sooner than we will adopt the same here. Can anyone confirm for me whether that is an accurate statement or not? I saw an app called Melon that seemed in that vein the other day. Anyone have any insight?

  59. 13:08 Selling to the unsellable is the great waste of time. #clipit

  60. 12 y/o entrepreneur at the end woaaaaaa

  61. Hey what was the name of that chat app @10:05 with the group chats, I'm still stuck on that.

  62. I love you dealing with adversity, D-Rock! :p

  63. I love you dealing with adversity, D-Rock! :p

  64. Gary man, you are obsessed with a lot of things. The way you say the word really triggers attention. I was wondering if you do it on purpose or automatically.

  65. 9:48 Gary gets into his zone of analyzing apps, the opportunities it could pose and starts thinking: how can I win inside the context of this platform. Like he said about early snapchat: I couldn't wait to fuck up that ghost.

  66. For Gary this was like playing a console game level on hard for the first time in a new map. "Dominate"! :p

    "I love new frontiers."

    Of course he wins. He can work 18 hours because to him it is like binge gaming everyday over and over. The smart part is that he only keeps playing games he is great at and gets a team to play the other ones.

  67. This was awesome! xx

  68. Get Henry Rollins on AskGaryVee

  69. Drock your editing is outstanding 👐🏼

  70. I like the intro song! I like most songs. I DJ and always get confused as to why people are so fussy about music. There's no problem with it – to each their own, but still confusing to me.

  71. Great content… in The best city in the world 😉

  72. If the Chinese VPN ban comes into effect next Feb, it'll be interesting to see what happens in HK

  73. is that a gold tea spoon @7:20?

  74. Such a classy episode and such a classy level of editing! Cheers Gary & DROCK!

  75. Gary is incredible. He's always putting out great content.

  76. GO-JEK Indonesian

  77. Go Jek Indonesia we proud

  78. Go Jek Indonesia, The Most Valuable Corporate Start Up in Indonesia,, 4 Billion dollars start Up.

  79. Hong Kong is so awesome. It oozes of the benefits of capitalism!

  80. 60% of the world is asian

  81. Tears in my eyes from the little girl at 15:49   Absolutely delightful energy

  82. The girl in the 1st segment was cute. I hope she is 17!

  83. that girl 12 and doing so much more than me

  84. This dude is literally walking motivation

  85. Love the “high five´´ at 13.25

  86. 8:10 oh Gary, many people are dead at 41. Messed up, frustrated. A successful business person might be a different thing, tho.

  87. @Gary: What do you feel about Baltic Markets? The whole Social thing is not as huge as in NY, but is it still important to start Social Marketing things (FB, Snapchat and etc.)? What would be your advice starting a business to similar markets (lower ones in Social media) ? Thanks for everything!

  88. 9:18 damn she is hot

  89. 11:37 I'd also freak out like that if I'd meet you 🙂 Hopefully I can someday 🙂

  90. So many things happen in a day! The Legend Energy is real! Thank you Gary!

  91. Please do a video on parenting I.e. how to teach your children to problem solve, evaluate risk, and deal with adversity. This is what our kids need to learn as part of their life to succeed
