Anytime I feel lazy, I refer to two people- Gary Vaynerchuk & Casey Neistat. I’ve mentioned Gary in many posts on this blog in the past but Casey not so much. You’d be living under a rock if you weren’t aware of who Film Maker and YouTube sensation, Casey Neistat is. With just over 7million subscribers on his YouTube Channel, Casey’s popularity continues to soar with each ten minute vlog he produces. While his videos keep his audience entertained and in awe, Casey Neistat is also a great speaker, story teller and living example of someone who truly has created his dream world through sheer passion, drive and hustle.
