Lizzie Vaynerchuk Biography
Unfortunately, when it comes to the background of Lizzie Vaynerchuk, there is a massive dearth of information.

Relationship with Gary Vaynerchuk
Although Lizzie Vaynerchuk herself is not one to court fame or attention, it has become an unwitting part of her life as a result of the enormous success her husband has enjoyed in the digital age of social media intrusion.
It is believed that the couple met each other through an online dating service, JDate, which was created for Jewish people to meet each other. Through the platform, Gary met the woman who would be his future wife and after one and a half hours into their first date, this was confirmed to him that he was indeed with the right woman. The couple began a relationship and eventually got married on the 13th of November, 2004.
One of the reasons Gary Vaynerchuk has been able to build his enormous wealth over a short period of time has been the dichotomy in responsibility in the Vaynerchuk household. Lizzie Vaynerchuk’s choice to focus on raising their family has allowed Gary to focus on building his business ventures and growing his wealth.
The effect of this separation has been the growth of Gary’s wine shop from a $3 million business into a $60 million business. This increase in capital strength has further been used to build a digital agency that has earned over $100 million in revenue.
According to Gary Vaynerchuk himself, all of this could not have been possible without the support of his wife in taking care of the domestic side of their lives.
The growth in the family hasn’t been all money and company expansion either. Lizzie Vaynerchuk and Gary have experienced family growth with the addition of two children.
