“Reactionary Business Guy” Gary Vaynerchuk Talks Web Promotions and More on the Menu

On today’s Morning Media Menu podcast, Wine Guy Gary Vaynerchuk talks about changing the world’s attitude toward wine, using new media in the pre-Twitter age.

“I think we’re living through a shocking change in our society,” Vaynerchuck said. “The Internet as we know it is 14 years old and everyone is acting like we’re in the heydey or the golden era. This stuff has not started. We’re in a 40-inning, extra inning game and we haven’t even put our clothes on to drive to the stadium…There’s enormous opportunity.”

Festooned in a bright pink top and substantial black heels, Allison — when she wasn’t sitting with her white lapdog slung across her — embodied one of her main tips of the night during her presentation: “Walk with purpose,” she said. “You can get away with just about anything.” Such as?
