Gary’s a serial entrepreneur who best known as Gary Vee. He is a chairman of Vayner X, and he runs Vayner Media and Vayner Sports. He has built businesses starting with his family’s wine company when he got out of college, established one of the first eCommerce wine sites in the late 90s, produced 1000 episodes of his YouTube vlog, is on the Fortune 40 under 40 list, and has written four New York Times bestsellers.

If you’re alive and you have a phone or web browser, you’ve probably seen at least one thing from Gary Vee because he’s uniquely positive, extremely interesting, and a rather outspoken person. In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, he lets us look inside his head and talk about how he thinks about success, gratitude, legacy, and what really matters in life.

While most people assume we will peak when we are young, my new book, SUPER HUMAN: The Bulletproof Plan to Age Backward and Maybe Even Live Forever, reveals there is another way. It is possible to make changes on the sub-cellular level to transform how you look and feel now, get healthier and disease-proofed with every decade, and dramatically extend your lifespan. Said differently, I wrote this book to help you have better sex, develop super brain power, avoid disease and live until 180.

Live better now and live longer later. Get reading.
