A lot has happened since we launched Rainmaker two years ago.

What started as an easier, more secure, and maintenance-free way to build a powerful website has become a complete digital marketing and sales solution -- including integrated email, marketing automation, an online course builder, podcasting and content optimization tools, and much more.

As you’ll hear in this candid interview, entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk's plan involves what has now become familiar to Unemployable listeners – building a digital agency now to set the stage for bigger and better things down the road.

In other words, true entrepreneurs are always playing the long game. Subscribe for free so you don't miss next week's episode with Henry Rollins!
Back in 2006, Gary Vaynerchuk started a daily video show that turned wine criticism on its head. More importantly, it took his family wine business from $3 million-a-year to a $60 million-a-year ecommerce juggernaut. From there, Gary did something that surprised a lot of people, including me.

You constantly hear that listening and feedback are the keys to improving your marketing, your products, and your services. But are you listening selectively?
