  1. And now you dont even get your day of hashtag trends on social media. Because they are ALL blocked. Gary hasnt said a word about (biased) cencorship has he? Remember that psychopaths seem nice and they tell half truths, but have bad intentions behind the scenes. Ted Bundy helped people. He was very nice and charming to girls, in ordet to get them to follow him to discrete locations. He was kind, caring, and seemed to say the right things. And then boom, shes dead. Gary was kind, caring, and seemed to say the right things. And then boom, our self appointed online business and life wisdom leader ditched us like we dont exist. Hes "going off grid" he said in one of his recent insta posts. Gary the multi multi millionaire and social media star who films his every move is now going off grid? Got it. I smell snake. hes a coward.

  2. Sounds a lot like a more enlightened Joe Namath…the way he pronounces words and enunciates…how he strings thoughts and words to make it more interesting then it should be…Such Positive ROI Gary!

  3. Ok Gary you're pretty freaking amazing but honestly WHAT IS THE DEAL with when you interview people you are always interrupting and talking more than they do, 5 mins in and I don't want to watch because its like dude its annoying. Like c'mon you're starting to sound like your ego is bigger than anything and apparently its not so could you learn to interview better so I and probably tons of others could actually enjoy watching otherwise I will just stick to your books and not watch your videos. Also I am not religious but its alot nicer since you stopped swearing so much. Thanks for the info you put out. For goodness sake can you interview better or give me the job of interviewing people.

  4. Your vids are my daily inspiration! This has really helped me re-structure my daily habits to help me get more wealth. Thanks! I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing with my channel if it wasn't for you.

  5. Nearly every comment is about how much Gary interrupted Matthew, and yeah, I'm not surprised, it's hard to watch. Definitely better interviews out there, I'm sure Matthew's not fazed, it's all part of the process after all

  6. the question/topic arnd 29:00 i think can be explained in an analogy everyone can understand:

    u love this artists art. u cant believe they can make things like that.
    u see this person start talking abt, how theyre nervous they might miss the mark, or how they dont think theyre very good.
    ur like, look, i have eyes, either ur being pseudohumble, or ur tragically underperceiving urself.

    so, thats the analogy, but… when ur a certain kind of artist, u actually pick apart n criticize even things u deeply admire. u want to learn. u care abt the scenes (scenes as in, the punk scene, or the underground atl hip hop scene, or the AAA game scene, etc.). deeply. but u have this hat u put on, where even ur favorite, pinnacle-of-human-innovation, flawless artists, r gonna have to get analyzed. for a decent example, lord of the rings. u can love the movie, but the pacing is near-objectively awful. to most ppl, itd be a sin, abhorrent blasphemy, to say or even perceive something like that abt art they hold dear to them. but, as an artist, u dont wanna be 'passing-grade', n for some artists, that means discovering n acknowledging issues in their favorite things.

    the combination of these things leads to being aware of several things. the extremity of subjectivity, even in ur own actual fkng eyeballs, first of all. second of all, the notion that there is some sense of objective skill, that u may not tend to ever see with ur own content.

    etc. etc. etc., im sure, whoever this comment was relevant for, gets what im saying. i think a final, huge factor tho, is that, at no single point in ur artistic career, do u ever just magically become a master at what u do, in a single moment. u might look arnd one day, adjust ur eyes, n be like, what the fuck, i made that; but at no point did u just hit the level up bar. there was no birthday, just a series of days, minutes, hrs, seconds. u didnt magically become 25, u were 24 yrs & 320 days, u were 24 yrs & 321 days, u were 24 yrs & 322 days, u were 24 yrs & 322 days & 17 hrs & 41 minutes & 69 seconds, etc. but ur eyes didnt all the sudden go woah fuck ur a master at what ur doing, the minute it happened. thats kinda on u, n u dont see ur art how anyone else sees it.

    u see it in tiny pieces, in huge pieces, u see it in goals, aspirations, plans, u measure it, but u dont just see ur art.

    everything u do, to some degree, is foreign to everyone else besides u.

  7. You all just gotta realise you're watching this video on a channel called GaryVee. If you want to hear McConaughey's thoughts uninterrupted, buy his book. That's literally what they started with – marketing the book. The fact that Gary is dominating this interview is because he wants to get McConaughey's opinions on the questions he wants answered for GARYVEE. McConaughey is a big boy and understands that and so plays along with Gary.

  8. It’s gonna suck when Gary dies and he trends for 1 week on social media. He convinced me to move back home with my parents and save money and I’m still here doin it and workin on my business. So many questions to ask

  9. Thank you both! A lot of circumstances are happening to/for me, things are aligning where I’m being presented you, Gary, and Green Lights. Sports cards brought me to you, Gary. Matthew Mc. book, saw it on Bill Maher and now circling back here. Big believer of the fabric of the universe. Excited to see where everything leads. Much love.

  10. Trying to be better not to cut off your guest ! AWESOME ! I had a bf once who always said, "I'm changing & learning every day; by the time I'm dead, I'll be perfect!" Ain't that the truth for the enlightened ones !

  11. There’s nothing more than I could use right now than what Matt had to say about forgiveness and hearing his specific perspective on how to hold that balance and I feel robbbedddddddd! Love you Gary and love listening to you but the beautiful spectrum of perspective in the world is the gift that allows each different persons understanding of any given topic, like empathy and forgiveness, to work within you differently and sit differently… like a new flavor that might fit great to digest. One way or another, you kinda cut him off of hearing his flavor that’s some guidance I personally could use. That being said though, you’re the person who graced all of us for hosting the interview and bringing the audience to make it happen, so mad love for that and thank you! Much love for you in general too

  12. it's funny to read all the comments telling Gary how to be more like Joe Rogan. and then to realize Gary is 8 years younger with twice the net worth, and everyone commenting has zero net worth in comparison. maybe if y'all learned to just LISTEN yourselves, instead of telling people who are already successful what to do, you would actually see some green lights. so ironic to have people lose out on the value of this video because they are too busy talking about someone not listening!

  13. Gary your awesome we love you and I know you don't give a shit what we think but you won't let him answer a question before you ask him 2 others it's madness. I had to pause this video many times because it was frustrating to watch. Your all about value and I believe that but we lost a lot of potential value in this video for sure.
