Before I knew what Entrepreneurship was, Gary Vaynerchuk serendipitously popped up in a Facebook post which was a link to his Inc 500 Keynote Speech.

It was one of the catalyst moments in my life that put me on a different path forward.

That was in 2011.

Fast-forward four years later to 2015 and the momentum had been building even though I was so early in my journey. I had learned a lot and I wanted to share it with others and to give thanks to Gary.

I wrote this blog, titled “What Is The R.O.I. of Gary Vaynerchuk”, 8 years ago. What’s funny is I remember writing this. I remember sharing it and Gary sending me a reply on Twitter. I remember how it energized me even more.

It’s amazing what has unfolded over the past 8 years and I’m excited to see what’s next.

Moral of the Story:

We don’t know where we’ll find a spark of inspiration but we are going to have a better opportunity by venturing out into the unknown and starting. We’ll bump into things by happenstance and call those “serendipitous” moments.

But they are only that way because we’ve opened ourselves up and created the chance for those opportunities to come into our lives.

Get out there and get started.

It’s the only way to create a better life for ourselves.
