🌟 MY BIGGEST INSPIRATIONS
On this page I wanted to highlight some very important people that have impacted my life tremendously. There is a general fact section and then a personal section about the ways they have impacted me.
👨 Roberto Blake
Roberto Blake is a 33 year old entrepreneur, graphic designer, photographer, author, speaker, marketer, educator and hustler. He is known for his successful YouTube channel by the same name where he teaches creatives the skills needed to not be a starving artist. His passion for helping people and teaching away his skills is very apparent.
Roberto has taught me the importance of investing in yourself and in your tools. Through his YouTube videos I've learned a lot about YouTube as a platform and how to grow an audience. This deeper understanding has let me gain +75% of my traffic on YouTube through YouTube and Google searches.
The videos that he has made that have had the biggest impact on me are his more philosophical videos, and especially his #CreativeThoughts series. He believes you should go out there and create something awesome each and every day and share it with the world. He introduced me Gary Vaynerchuk and for that I'm forever grateful.
👨👩👧👦 Gary Vaynerchuk
Gary Vaynerchuk is a family man, business man, entrepreneur, author, speaker, marketing expert and angel investor. He is currently the CEO of VaynerMedia and VaynerSports. January 30th 2018 his 5th book Crushing It was published with a huge success. In addition to his businesses, he also has a daily YouTube show called DailyVee and he also posts very actively on Instagram and Twitter.
Gary Vaynerchuk is the dad I never had. He has taught me invaluable lessons in life and business that I will never forget. His emphasis on self-awareness, empathy, gratitude, kindness, patience, hard work and truth has really had its impact on me. After consuming his speeches, DailyVee, books, Instagram posts, tweets, podcast interviews and more the past 18 months, I have got a new pair of lenses to look at the world with. Gary Vaynerchuk means a lot to me and I wish him the best in life.
I respect, admire and love my girlfriend more than anyone else in this world. I intend to work hard every day forever to make life good for us. I am grateful for everything she is and does for me, and for everything I can do and be for her.
We have an interesting story and I think we are good for one another. To meet in a YouTube comment, become close friends, and eventually form a long-distance relationship... to then living together soon, each and every day, has really been a journey I am grateful for.
I have learned that trust, determination and patience are essentials in any kind of relationship. And we have had to acknowledge them while being in distance for such a long time and care for those values in order for us to succeed eventually.
🤵 Pat Flynn
Pat Flynn is an online entrepreneur, author, speaker, architect and family man. After an unexpected turn in his architect career, he started an online blog where he taught away skills to pass the LEED AP Exam. Many projects followed, including Food Truckr and Smart Passive Income, which have led him to become a prominent expert among online entrepreneurs.
I was introduced to Pat Flynn by Roberto Blake as well. He has an interesting story and a passion to help others with their online endevours. He is the creator and host to the SPI Podcast and has made countless videos on his YouTube channel, that both work as a great resource for online creators. Flynn has also written a couple books too, though I have as of now only listened to the audiobook version of Will It Fly, which I highly recommend. Even though this book is targeted at entrepreneurs, I found it to bring be a lot of value about life as well. He is a great person and I recommend you to have a look into what he is up to. Here is a link to Pat Flynn (website).
Verlisify is an online creator on YouTube who is well-known for his Pokemon themed videos. He has made over 4000 videos on his YouTube channel and is known for his HOW TO USE series where he showcases one Pokemon at a time and talks about how it can be used competitively. He is also quick to cover news and also has a lot of knowledge of Pokemon so that his discussion videos about what may be coming next are quite interesting too. He recently broke the world record on one of the expert levels in the VR game Beat Saber.
I have been a fan of Verlisify for years at this point. He was the one who taught me competitive battling in the Pokemon games and I really like his style of videos. I aprpeciate his passion for Pokemon and that he cares about the spirit of Pokemon. I look up to him as a creator and hope to work together with him one day.
