My Inbox to Yours | 006 THANK YOU!
Wow. Such a fun story for my inbox to yours.. I recieved this email from emily last night ;) I couldn’t help but share.. !!
Your favorite number is 5!!!??
My son was born on 5/5/00 Cinco de Mayo.
He was 5 pounds 5 ounces born at 5am. I can’t even make this stuff up.
His nickname has been cinco since birth.
He’s the most serious kid but we make him wear a sombrero on his birthday
He secretly loves it. lol
You LEGIT changed my life.
I follow you religiously.
Some people hit their favorite Drake playlist at the gym,
I have GaryVee on lock, in my ear, for an hour straight every morning.
Because of YOU, I am no longer depressed.
Because of YOU, I grabbed fear by the balls.
Because of YOU, I am self AWARE (AMEN!!)
Because of YOU, my business has a future.
So here’s what happened.
We were doing well for a small startup, about to hit 750k
Then our factory in China doubled their prices.
The port went on strike.
I lost my investor.
I went from feeling on top of the world, projecting to do 12 million in 4 years….
To closing down everything — I got so depressed.
It wasn’t GOOD.
Then I heard your video “Document Vs. Create” “SHOW THE FUCK UP!!”
Some of you are looking at Beyonce TODAY, Lebron TODAY….
I started taking your advice…
I went out and got a job. I hustled before work and after work.
Stopped feeling sorry for myself.
Stopped doing anything that took me off focus.
Stopped hanging around nay sayers.
I searched for new factories and new partnerships.
I decided that there is a WAY and that I would not give up.
I changed my mindset and I changed everything about my life.
My business is on its way back up and I wanted to take some time this morning
to say THANK YOU!
Thank you Gary, for reminding me what I’m made of.
Thank you for being amazing.
I sincerely mean that.
I love you and everything you stand for. So does my husband and so do my 4 kids.
