Gary Vee on The Power of Taking a Strategic Step Backwards

In today’s episode of the Kevin and Fred show, Gary Vee returns for another great conversation. Today, we talk about the lessons we should be learning from what’s going on right now. It’s clear that our world is never going back to the way it was, and that is the new normal. Many people are unhappy, and could use this time to make a change, but they don’t because they are too invested in where they are right now. This sunk cost fallacy isn’t only false, it’s also a recipe for unhappiness and regret. Gary Vee’s message: choose happiness over money and status, and have the humility to take a strategic step backwards to create the life you want. A house, car or social status is not worth dying inside. Gary Vaynerchuk is the chairman of VaynerX, a modern-day media and communications holding company and the active CEO of VaynerMedia, a full-service advertising agency servicing Fortune 100 clients across the company’s 4 locations. In addition to VaynerMedia, VaynerX also includes Gallery Media Group, which houses women’s lifestyle brand PureWow and men's lifestyle brand ONE37pm. In addition to running VaynerMedia, Gary also serves as a partner in the athlete representation agency VaynerSports, cannabis-focused branding and marketing agency Green Street and restaurant reservations app Resy.

Karen Cooper on Intentionally Choosing a Different Business Model & Empowering Women In Real Estate

In today’s episode, I’m joined by Karen Cooper, a team leader and coach whose real estate career spans 18 years. She has navigated the real estate rollercoaster, from working as a managing broker, to running a real estate operation that is intentionally not a rainmaker team. After observing the high turnover that these teams have, she decided to create a team with decentralized lead generation, and an environment where agents could grow and build their own personal brands. Her passion for empowering agents drove her to create a Facebook group and coaching program that helps fellow agents gain a sense of direction and not feel the loneliness and isolation that’s so common in this industry. She has always put client care at the center of her own real estate business and she took the client care program she developed and adopted the same methods to her coaching. She has effectively leveraged the freedom this business gives us to create a career and business model that works for us. ...
