Crush It! Book Review

Crush It!
Now is the time to cash in on your passion!

This is the second time I’ve read Crush It by Gary Vaynerchuk since I bought it back in 2009, and I was not disappointed. There is pure passion running through his veins! The book is quick and easy to read (142 pages in hardcover), but certainly NOT thin on content and ideas. Here are a few of the ways you can win:

  • Identify your passion (are you sure you know what it is? and can you talk about it better than anyone else?)
  • Make sure you can think of at least fifty content topics to blog about
  • Name your personal brand
  • Write, comment and live your passion

It’s the wisdom and thought behind these points that make this book invaluable. Read this if you’re unhappy in your current job — if it doesn’t spark something inside you, read it again. And if you’re happy, but just need something extra to boost you to the next level, pay close attention to chapters 8, 9 (it’s only 1 word long!) and 10.

His story of success is amazing, and he truly lives by the rules: love your family, work super hard and live your passion.

Enjoy this one over and over again.
