Haris Reis on Getting an Internship with Gary Vaynerchuk BtR 183

Entrepreneur, speaker, and author, Haris Reis shares his story about getting an internship with marketing guru Gary Vaynerchuk.

How to Land an Internship with Gary Vaynerchuk?

Getting an internship may seem like a daunting task. Where do you start? How do you get noticed, especially by someone as big as Gary Vaynerchuk? Yes, we’re talking about that guy, Gary Vee.

Haris tells the story of how he took responsibility for his own success. Rather than settle for being a small fish in a big sea, he set out to make himself the big whale in a small puddle. 

We’ll tell you it involved a t-shirt and a whole lot of effort.

Getting an Internship Story is More About Getting Noticed

This is not a “how to ask for an internship in person” kind of message. This is not a “how to find an internship for college students” kind of message either.

We are sharing a story about tenacity, perseverance, and getting out of the rut of a comfort zone intentionally.

The truth is that you create your own opportunity. You need to be responsible for how your life turns out. Your career, your marriage, and the raising of your children are in your hands.

We hope this story from Haris inspires you and gets you fired up to get out of the rut you may be facing right now.
