Lots of things contribute to the making of a powerful, happy person -- focus, strength, intelligence, authenticity. But for entrepreneur, investor and bestselling author Gary Vaynerchuk, the most important aspect of being successful -- at anything -- is self-awareness.

"If you know who you are, then by nature, you'll probably bet on your strengths," he says. 

In this half-hour interview at VaynerMedia headquarters, Vaynerchuk talks with Entrepreneur Network partner Joe De Sena, founder and CEO of Reebok Spartan Race and the voice of the Spartan UP! podcast, about the importance of knowing yourself, how his Eastern European upbringing shaped him, how he's obsessed with his own legacy and more.
