Gary Vee's Net Worth

In 2022, Gary Vee’s net worth is more or less $200 million. (2) His massive net worth is attributed to a lot of things. One is that he was born into an affluent immigrant family with a wine business—a business he helped improve and grow. Another reason for his massive net worth is the apps and companies that he had established.

Resy, a wine-reservation app and restaurant discovery app, were founded by Gary Vaynerchuk and his younger brother. Because of the success of the platform, it was acquired by American Express in 2019, thus earning him loads of money.

Another company he helped establish is Empathy Wines winery, later acquired by one of America’s top producers and marketers of beers, wine, and other beverages. However, a considerable portion of his wealth is all thanks to his father’s business, Shopper’s Discount Liquors which he inherited, expanded and rebranded after graduating college.

He rebranded the company into Wine Library and became very aggressive in his marketing strategy, which spans YouTube, online sales, and Wine Library TV. Because of this, the business grew from worth $3 million to $60 million per year.

Gary Vee’s wealth also increases from his other companies, such as VaynerMedia, a social media digital agency he founded in 2009, Gallery Media Group, a subsidiary of VaynerX, and VaynerX. He also earns royalties from his books.

Gary Vee's Early Life

Gary Vaynerchuk was not born in the United States. He was born in Babruysk, Byelorussian SSR, Soviet Union, as Gennady Vaynerchuk on November 14, 1975. This makes him 46 years old. Gary Vaynerchuk was the son of Sasha and Tamara Vaynerchuk.  (3)

Both of them were Belarusian immigrants who immigrated to the United States back in 1972 when Gary Vaynerchuk was only three years old. Upon arrival to the United States, the family of three initially settled in New York City’s Queensborough. Afterward, the family decided to move to New Jersey, where they settled in the Edison area.

His father owns a retail-wine business called “Shopper’s Discount Liquors.” Gary started to help out in the business when he was just 14 years old, and eventually, he helped cultivate the company to success.

Unknown to many, Vaynerchuk is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. His mother was only 20 years old when she had him, and by the time she was 25, she had already lost both of her parents. (4) 

Gary Vee has two siblings, AJ Vaynerchuk, the CEO of VaynerSports, and Liz Vaynerchuk.

Gary Vee's Education

Gary Vaynerchuk attended the North Hunterdon Regional High School, a public high school in Clinton Township, New Jersey. After his four years of stay in the school, he attended the Mount Ida Campus of UMass Amherst, a private college situated in Newton, Massachusetts. Vaynerchuk took up a Bachelor’s degree in Management Science. (5)

Gary Vee's Wife and Family Life

Gary Vaynerchuk made headlines in February of 2022 when he posted on Instagram with Mona Vand. Speculations about his supposed divorce sparked online when several posts were made on his account. Just like Gary, Mona is also an internet personality. Besides that, she is also a doctor, blogger, and television personality. She is most recognizable for her show “Dr. Mona Vand: The Modern Pharmacist.”

Mona Vand is a Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences graduate and a millionaire in her own right. When the photo series about the couple started circulating online, many wondered what happened to Gary’s first wife, Lizzie Vaynerchuk. 

Lizzie Vaynerchuk and Gary Vee tied the knot in 2004, and they’ve been happy ever since. Gary and Lizzie have two children named Misha Ava Vaynerchuk and Xander Avi Vaynerchuk. Gary Vee is famous for placing “Family first” in his bio, which further fuels the speculations regarding their divorce. If the rumors are true, it is said that Lizzie Vaynerchuk is entitled to half of the Belarusian American entrepreneur’s fortune. (6)

Gary Vee's Career

Many claims that Gary Vee’s entrepreneurial mindset began when he acquired his father’s wine retail business fresh out of college. But that is not entirely true. On his website, Gary Vaynerchuk describes himself as a “purebred” entrepreneur. (7) The reason for this is due to his exposure to the business world at just seven years old. At seven, Gary Vee began selling lemonade, which earned him not only money but skills in doing business.

When he was in high school, Gary Vee started earning a lot more money, tens of thousands to be exact, through selling baseball cards and toys. By the time he was 14, he had joined his family business by bagging ice, which earned him $2/hr.

In the late 90s, the internet was starting to be widely popular. This gave Gary Vee the idea to transition their local business, Shoppers Discount Liquors, into e-commerce. He rebranded the business into Wine Library, which would later become one of the first e-commerce platforms selling alcohol. The company would later increase its annual earnings from $4 million to $60 million.

In 2006, he started WineLibraryTV. On the platform, he would post various videos that caught Ellen Degeneres’s and Conan O’Brien’s attention. Eventually, he would begin producing business content online.

In 2008, Gary Vee’s life changed after he gave a keynote address that caught the attention of HarperCollins, signing him with a book deal. “Crush it!” the first of his books, was published in 2009. It quickly became a bestseller and kick-started his career as an author of a self-help book. Also, in the same year, he and her younger brother AJ Vaynerchuk founded VaynerMedia. VaynerMedia will eventually grow and acquire other companies, such as PureWow and ONE37.

Today, he is venturing into the NFT game through the launch of VeeFriends.
