When I first met Gary Vaynerchuk, I wanted to find out his secret.

How did he invest in all the cool apps like Facebook, Twitter, Uber, Venmo, Snapchat, and Medium?

Most importantly, how is he ahead of every trend?

Imagine there’s a hot new app. By the time you’ve downloaded it, you’ll find Gary has been there for months and built an audience (look him up on Musical.ly or Anchor).

This is how he's amassed millions of followers (and became Forbes’ #1 top Tech/ Business Influencer).

But, how??

"Here's my best hack:
I go to the iTunes app store every morning,
click on the apps tab, and look at the tops apps to get a sense for when things are bubbling up.
I watched a lot of big platforms like Yik Yak and Snapchat grow organically through this channel before Techmeme and Re/code ever wrote about them."
