Title: Gary Vee in the UAE for the first time | Nov 2018, Sharjah 🇦🇪| No other than the man himself, @garyvee @arabicgaryvee.
I have been too SO MANY entrepreneur festivals over the years and NO ONE has ever said what Gary said yesterday at the Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival. He didn't glorify entrepreneurship or talk about how everyone should be an entrepreneur. In fact, he did the opposite. He said 'let us stop putting entrepreneurship on a pedestal'. He also said 'I was an entrepreneur 10 years back when it wasn't cool. I'm an entrepreneur now when it is cool. And I will still be an entrepreneur in 2027 when a entrepreneur crisis will happen and it is no longer cool'. His point is, not everyone has to be an entrepreneur and some people are not made to be ones. He spoke about how hard it is and unless you really love it and are not in it for the money, only than you will succeed as one. He is one because that is all he knows. He spoke about how the best MBA in life is working for a top executive at one of the top companies and learning from them instead, which I agree with soo much!! He also spoke about how we does not understand why everyone in this region wants to go to Silicon Valley so badly. 'there is so much to do and achieve in one square mile here guys, more than you think you will get over there'. Your talk was so refreshing Gary!! I love entrepreneurship because I love the challenge, not because it's the next cool thing and you are right, a lot of startups will fail because they are in it for the wrong reasons. #garyvee #vaynermedia #vaynersports #vaynernation #garyvaynerchuk #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneurship #sharjah #dubai #uae #leadership #uber #facebook #global #SEF18 #sharjahef #dubaistartup
