    Gary Vay ner chuck has been a great mentor this last year and a half Although this book is from 2008, EVERYTHING he says is relevant Everything is still up to date His story is really interesting and motivational It s an easy read and a very concise guide to achieving the freedom to work your dream job Though entrepreneurship isn t for everyone, the lessons he teaches makes it possible to build a side hustle from doing what you love Imagine being able to talk about your favourite things, be part of a community and after some hard work earning extra money on the side from it I have started a You Tube channel called DKD21Media on videography, photography and graphic design and I am motivated to work on it thanks to this.Get this book if you want a practical guide to changing your life and making a career big or small out of what you love.

    This book was long overdue on my reading list I bought it used, from , for 2 but it was well worth it I m sure Gary Vaynerchuck wouldn t mind me grabbing a bargain The book may be a bit outdated but Gary Vee definitely was ahead of his time There are many lessons which are still relevant to today I believe this book is for anybody, whether you work a professional career or are an aspiring entrepreneur.The book is a quick and easy read but you can get a lot of value from it for your professional life Keep HUSTLING

    Great book and really well written but it s talking about social media and technology from back in 2010 so its a bit out of date.I think the general theme of the book is a great idea but it s let down because social media has changed so much since then.

    Gary Vaynerchuk garyvee is famous for his approach to personal branding on the web He spent years building his family business from small origins into a multi million dollar industry leader Using his video cast to promote himself and his business, he has become an Internet personality.Gary s book Crush It is about grabbing the bull by the horns and cashing in on what you love doing His basic principles are 1 Love your family, 2 Work superhard, 3 Live your passion And basically this is his mantra So he recommends that you go and work out what you want to do with your favourite thing or your dream, and just live your passion.The book covers a bit of personal background starting with his family s move from Belarus to America early in his life His family had a business selling discount liquor Gary decided that wine was a good thing to get into because there is a whole world around choosing, tasting and picking wines This became his passion.The book covers how Gary used Facebook and Twitter to build up awareness of himself and his business Another principle in the book is that you should build your personal brand It does not matter if you work for a large corporate and don t want to set up a business on your own you should still build your personal brand anyway because it will help you with your career Gary covers how one can do this easily and for free.He talks about his web cast Wine Library TV a.k.a The Thunder Show He admits that his approach is in your face and suspects he loses 10 12% of his viewers because of it However his passion is evident and this is what keeps the 90% This was an interesting point in the book because I nearly stopped watching his web cast the first time I watched after that first few minutes, but I carried on because the wine he was tasting was interesting It grew on me Gary clearly knows his own faults.The book is easy to read and only one nitpick from me he mentions that Internet hasn t been around long and Gary really means the web here.For success though, you need to temper the work superhard advice with the methods fromThe 4 hour Work Week Escape the 9 5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich.

    This book is easy to read and full of good insight into the evolving world of social media Now almost 10 years old some content is out of date, but Gary Vaynerchuk s passion is evident throughout and this alone is inspiring.

    If I read this book in 2009 rather than 2015 I would have been completely blown away.But after watching the AskGaryVee show religiously over the past year I didn t learn too much new stuff as I ve heard Gary talk about all of this already.So loved the content, amazing book but just came too late for me to get the most value as I knew it already But not taking anything away from content of the book as it s excellent and for someone not familiar with Gary s philosophy or ideas you need to read this.
