In this episode I talk with Caleb Ralston who worked with Gary Vaynerchuk between 2018 and 2020 and who recently was hired by Alex and Leila Hormozi to run their content.
Caleb was initially editing and shooting Gary’s daily vlog, but when Gary started going hard on TikTok he asked him to own the strategy and content creation for the platform and Caleb took Gary’s TikTok account from 300,000 followers to 1.5M.
Today, Caleb just started working with Alex and Leila Hormozi as their Creative Director, which means he’ll be leading the content strategy and building a content team around them.
