According to Capitalism.com, in the past, his estimated net worth was approximately $160 million when came to the year 2019. That is a growth in net worth of 25% in a little over two years, which is very impressive, to say the least.

He was making thousands of dollars every weekend thanks to his keen business sense and natural sales ability.

Gary Vee and his wife, Lizzie Vaynerchuk, welcomed their first child, a daughter named Misha Eva Vaynerchuk, in 2009 and their second child, a son called Xander Avi Vaynerchuk, in 2012. Concerns that Gary Vee had moved on arose after he posted an Instagram photo with a woman named Mona Vand.Vaynerchuk has always been secretive about his personal life, so it is unknown if he is single or divorced. In the event of Gary and Lizzie’s divorce, Lizzie would be entitled to half of Gary’s wealth.
He took over his father’s Shoppers Discount Liquors after graduating from college and changed the name of the establishment to Wine Library. Then he launched winelibrary.com and made the most of all available online sales opportunities. The sales rose from $3 million to over $60 million in just five short years.
