👨🏻💻 My Verdict
One of the most compelling startup founders I’ve watched on YouTube. I really hope he never stops uploading!
I’m Joshua Smith from Australia. I have been building profitable content sites since 2011.
Today, in addition to managing my own portfolio, I actively help others on their journey.
How much does Garry Tan make and how?
Garry makes $135,000 per month with his VC deals and a small income on YouTube. He runs a highly regarded firm called Initialized Capital.
Many of his audience, myself included, really enjoy his podcast episodes and interviews. It’s here that he details his first-hand experiences in Silicon Valley and the challenges of the current startup climate.
Creator Red Flags
Of course Garry has some controversy. I mean – he lost $200m at age 23 (but definitely got it back!) and some consider him a sellout. But for 99.9% of his audience, Garry is the man!
The X Factor
What makes him the man?
➜ He’s super calm yet proactive
➜ He doesn’t create clickbait drama
➜ Despite being retired, he still grinds like a MOFO
➜ He’s always commenting on the start of Silicon Valley
And for me personally, it’s his personal development content that really helps me. Unlike Tony Robbins which is too repetitive, scripted and unoriginal, Garry simply shares his personal insights along the journey. This way, he’s relatable to more than just the tech founders.
Ultimately, I’ve learned a ton from watching Garry Tan’s videos on Youtube.
My key takeaways include:
➜ Work relentlessly on your idea
➜ Be willing to seek startup advice
➜ Stop wasting your life online
➜ Deal with the failures and rejections
And above all else, be willing to work with a mentor like Garry who’s been through the same journey that you’re embarking on already.
