Zain Gaziani’s career was going well, and then a single question changed his life – “Do you want to move to New York?”
He’d been following Gary Vaynerchuk (aka “GaryVee”) for a few years, and as a moderator of his Facebook community, he was able to attend a keynote Gary was giving. His goal was to get a selfie with GaryVee and thank him for the positive impact he’d had on his life. At the start of the keynote, Gary announced that there would be a Q&A and encouraged people to get in line to ask a question. Although he wasn’t sure what he’d say, Zain got in line and soon found himself at the mic.
He told Gary about the impact he’d had on his life and about the joy that being a moderator for his Facebook community brought him. And that’s when Gary asked him – “Do you want to move to New York?” Saying yes to GaryVee’s offer changed Zain’s life in an instant, and in this episode, he shares the lessons he’s learned in his career – from trusting your instincts to tips for social media and why you should never stop learning.
