A few weeks ago I stumbled on to Gary Vaynerchuk’s Youtube channel and got hooked pretty quickly. That very same week, I purchased his book, Crush It!
Now normally it takes me a week or so to read a book cover to cover and sometimes I’ll skim through books to get the pieces of information I want most.
With this book I read the entire thing cover to cover in probably 2-3 days, at most. The whole time I was reading the book I was imagining Gary yelling at me with every line. Anyone else imagine the authors voice of books over your own?
It really inspired me to build my personal brand out even larger than I had thought before, as well as my other business, Slaptastick. Since finishing the book (about a week or so ago), I have been working harder than ever. I spend time each night writing blog posts, Youtube scripts and working on my first ever course (coming soon).
One message that Gary puts across in his book and on his Youtube channel is that you have to be passionate about what you’re doing and you have to put in the work! The thing that he really stresses though is that you should never sacrifice your family over your work. Which is definitely a powerful message, especially from someone like him who seems to eat, sleep and breathe work.
If you’re looking to kick some ass and start your own business taking your passion to the next level you should definitely check out Gary’s Book! You can also check out his Youtube channel which seems to update almost daily, sometimes even 3 new videos a day.
