Did you know that hot dogs with boxed merlot are delicious? In 2006, Gary Vaynerchuk launched Wine Library TV, an online video blog that quickly gained a following of Vayniacs who began to organize offline gatherings. Gary brings “thunder” when appearing on various television talk shows, writing books, he has even created his own wines. This guy has paired wine with breakfast cereal! In 2009 he and his brother A.J. founded digital/social media agency VaynerMedia which, today, has more than 400 employees in offices in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. How appropriate that he was tapped as keynote speaker of the Lemonade Day Entrepreneurial Excellence Awards.
