Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
Gary Vaynerchuk will make a personal video for you. He even sent a guy in Minnesota a cheeseburger once after the guy asked him for one on Twitter. The New Jersey dude's first really successful business was winelibrary.com. Now, brands like GE, Pepsi, and the New York Jets ask his agency, Vayner Media, to help with their social media mojo. And, whether you're an iPhone or an Android, one of the features that has had a lot of attention recently is voice recognition. But there's one problem: If you're speaking with accented English, your device's voice recognition won't work nearly as well.
