Crushing It!: How Great Entrepreneurs Build Their Business and Influence-and How You Can, Too by Gary Vaynerchuk

Four-time New York Times bestselling author Gary Vaynerchuk offers new lessons and inspiration drawn from the experiences of dozens of influencers and entrepreneurs who rejected the predictable corporate path in favor of pursuing their dreams by building thriving businesses and extraordinary personal brands.

In his 2009 international bestseller Crush It, Gary insisted that a vibrant personal brand was crucial to entrepreneurial success, In Crushing It!, Gary explains why that’s even more true today, offering his unique perspective on what has changed and what principles remain timeless. He also shares stories from other entrepreneurs who have grown wealthier—and not just financially—than they ever imagined possible by following Crush It principles. The secret to their success (and Gary’s) has everything to do with their understanding of the social media platforms, and their willingness to do whatever it took to make these tools work to their utmost potential. That’s what Crushing It! teaches readers to do.

In this lively, practical, and inspiring book, Gary dissects every current major social media platform so that anyone, from a plumber to a professional ice skater, will know exactly how to amplify his or her personal brand on each. He offers both theoretical and tactical advice on how to become the biggest thing on old standbys like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat; podcast platforms like Spotify, Soundcloud, iHeartRadio, and iTunes; and other emerging platforms such as For those with more experience, Crushing It! illuminates some little-known nuances and provides innovative tips and clever tweaks proven to enhance more common tried-and-true strategies.

Crushing It! is a state-of-the-art guide to building your own path to professional and financial success, but it’s not about getting rich. It’s a blueprint to living life on your own terms.

I'm a huge fan on GaryVee. I ask his other book #AskGaryVee on my night stand. I watch all his stuff and follow all his social media. I did have a little challenge trying to find this book at Barnes & Noble but one of the staff helped me out and BOOM! I got it.

You better be ready for this book when you sit down with it. There is a fair amount of motivational talk, short stories from others who’ve found success after applying the Crush It! principles from Gary’s 2009 book. But if you need motivation to get started, buy this book, set it aside, then pick it up when you’re ready to GO. This book is chock-full of practical advice on reaching your highest potential on the various social media platforms. Gary Vaynerchuk not only teaches you how to succeed, but equally important, how to fail and move on. If you’re ready to get going, build your brand, and dive in, this is your book. If I had one criticism, I could have done with fewer testimonials and more Gary. A quick read, you’ll be pumped to ramp up your presence and build your business after…no, WHILE reading this book. Highly recommended for anyone who’s ready to make it happen yesterday.

I've been listening to Gary on his podcast (GaryVee Audio Experience) for about a month now, and the amount of knowledge, insight, and value that he has brought to my life was so much that I felt I needed to go out and buy 2 copies of his book. Honestly if I had the finances I would have bought more. I kept 1 copy and another I gave to my branch leader to read and asked her to pass it down, after she has finished, to someone in our office that will benefit from this. Gary gives away so much free content through different social media platforms, that I feel my $50 spent on the 2 books is well worth it. What A Deal :) btw went out for the first time in many many years to Barnes & Noble to purchase it first thing in the morning.

Gary Vee does it again! If there is one thing you can count on is, this man is current. He has spent over 2 decades listening to the game, understanding industry dynamics, adapting to current trends and staying ahead of the curve. If you own a business, plan on starting a business or just want to know how to connect better with your audience, get this book!

I don't usually read two books from the same author in a row but this month I had to make an exception. I had just heard about Jab, Jab, Jab Right Hook a couple weeks before Chrushing It! came out. I had to check it out. It was more than worth my time. Thanks Gary for taking the time to get this out to the world. I've learned a ton about the mindset needed to make a real impact for my own business and for my clients.
