How Danny & Gary’s Paths Crossed

  • How did Danny get Gary on his podcast?
    • He shared a tweet listing a few of his dream podcast guests. Several people commented that Gary should come on Danny’s podcast and sometime later, Gary said he’d do it.
  • This isn’t the first time Danny and Gary’s paths have crossed:
    • When Danny was 15, he wanted to go to a speaking event to see Gary Vaynerchuk, but his mother said no because it was a school night. Danny then messaged Gary on Instagram and Gary responded and asked for his mother’s number. Gary then called Danny’s mom and left her a message saying to let him go to the event.
      • What did Gary tell Danny’s mom?
        • He said that the world is constantly changing and that Danny would probably learn more about life by coming to the event than he would from school
  • Gary’s north star in life is gratitude: He’s trying to help as many people as possible and spread positivity in every direction
    • One of Gary’s life goals is to be one of the most famous people in the world to spread his message about gratitude to as many people as possible
