This past September 11th an absolutely blistering Medium article about Gary Vee cropped up on my LinkedIn. In it the author makes an argument that unabashed capitalist such as Gary are tantamount to terrorists.

Now if you listen to this show (or read the description) it should come as a surprise to no one I have my professional issues with Gary’s stance on formal education. That being said, even this was a bit much for me.

I was so taken aback I asked if this article was fair to Gary in Carlos Gil’s private Social Media Mastermind Facebook Group. The conversation was lively with respectful discourse. My friend, fellow podcaster and ninth guest of this very podcast Douglas Karr chimed in with a perspective I think is representative of conservative Republicans who openly support Donald Trump (which Doug is among).

In this episode I explore what I call “The Gospel of Gary Vee”, and give my perspective on the views of both Alexis P. Morgan and Douglas Karr. It’s my sincere hope you gain both insight and clarity from this sensitive, yet much needed conversation.


You’ll Learn:

  • Why Alexis P. Morgan is so damn mad at Gary (or not).
  • Why I feel Alexis’ overall argument is quite valid, despite to scathing tone.
  • The disconnect between viewpoint of conservative Republicans like Douglas Karr and the realities of corporate opportunities based on my life experiences.
  • How name discrimination and other social pressures informed my journey of entrepreneurship.
  • The simple social experiment whites can take to experience the challenges Black face just getting into Corporate America.


3 Key Points:

  1. Even if you don’t like the tone or form of expression someone uses, that doesn’t make their argument mute.
  2. Opportunity without access is meaningless.
  3. White privilege exists and is a distinct business advantage.
