Gary Vee's early life story is not that interesting as may think it should be. He was just another normal guy who has to struggle for chasing his dreams and when he was 12/13, he used to operate a lemonade stand franchise. Having a sales experience, he then started trading baseball cards, and then by the age of 14, he joined his family wine retail business from his father. But, it was not that simple, he shared that many of his friends used to taunt him and said many shameful words that he is a teenager and working at father's store. However, Gary was confident and he tried many different approaches to take that wine business to the next levels. He used the internet and started sending emails with his wine recommendations and other ideas.

So, for making huge money with his Father's Shoppers Discount Liquors store, he renamed it to Wine Library giving a fresh touch to branding and making it look more fresh and brandable, he then transferred the store online by registering winelibrary.com and started taking orders online. Yes, the eCommerce for wines begin with this approach of Gary Vee.

Somewhere between all of this, Vaynerchuk co-founded the restaurant-reservation app, Resy and it was another success story of Gary Vee which was then acquired by American Express in a deal that is not disclosed and we don't know the exact figures for how much he sold his app that could change restaurant reservation process.

His father's business was generating a good amount in annual revenue, but it was standing still at $3 million. Gary created a plan to make it go online and capture more leaders, more orders so more revenue. After creating an eCommerce store, in 2006 he started a YouTube channel with the name of Wine Library TV and he got success there. In 2009, Gary with his brother AJ Vaynerchuk co-founded VaynerMedia for capturing giant brands and then help them go large on social media networks. He started getting thousands of views on his daily uploaded vlogs and it was everything about Wine. With this channel, he got to be a guest on The Conan Show and the real success begin here and completing 1000 episodes on Wine Library TV, Gary stopped uploading any new videos to this channel which was generating huge sales for his wine business and converted to Gary Vee Podcast (audio experience) and then in 2014 he started another YouTube channel.

Long story short: In just five years of starting an eCommerce store for his wine business, he took the family business to $60 million per year by increasing sales of wine which was standing at $3 million per year when it was just an offline liquor store. So, just making a business go online and with self-branding, Vaynerchuk made become a millionaire with over $60 sales a year.
