Love to read. Love to write.
Very “no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is” but informative and motivating and Gary makes his point – be yourself, follow your passion and get yourself out there. Your drive will make it happen. A great “you can do it!” motivating book for anyone with a dream.
Cutting edge information
Add more comical stories.
Yes, but didn't have the time. I had to listen to it over 2 months.
I was informed by a dear friend how important it was to learn to market myself if I ever wanted to be financially free by creating my own blog, webpage and bring value to my listeners and the public. "Crush it!" gave me a new insight and knowledge of where the world was going and where the future Millionaires were coming from, now I know. Thanks Gary!
I love that he is narrative his own book. He tells good story and he is motivating. I listen to this book twice already.
Be known first than grow your business
I got the audiobook of this because I was recommended it in advance as even better than the text version because there was "more to this one". I haven't read the text version, but could still see that it was true - throughout the book, he'd announce, "Alright, I'm going off script here, but... " and either elaborate or give an update or respond to reactions from the text version or tell a story or what have you. So, that was very cool. The author was a great narrator for this book; I can't imagine some dry reading being done of it. It was like having a casual conversation with a friend who has been there, done that.
My only beef was that it was a such a short book. The whole title clocked in at under four hours. And that's with the extras - it probably would have been three hours otherwise. Good... just short.
For those who are in small business it's essential that they get word out on their brand. Self-branding and how to effectively do that is paramount. Gary helps you with some tips and tricks to do that without sounding like a used car salesman.
Be social and don't sell. It's such a great mantra.
The pace was slow with how fast the delivery was.
Engage your audience and make them feel like they're on the journey with you. Being in fictional entertainment. The behind the scenes and struggles to get projects made is something a lot of creators shy away from the public. Knowing that I'm new to the game of content creation, I have nothing to hide so making it a group affair is the best way to get things made and build an audience from inception.
I'd recommend the book to anyone looking to make a big change in their company with little to no start-up cash but lots of creativity and gusto.

Divorced mom of 2 in college. I have a day job which I want 2 trade 4 online work,I love books, print is small I turned 2 audible.love it!
I loved this book by Gary Vaynerchuk! he gave me the desire and the insight to go do what I want to do and start working online. he seems like the kind of guy you want to talk with at a social party. He is to the point and in your face kind of advise that makes this book a must read for anyone who is thinking about doing work online or who wants to own and operate a business. What to think about and how to get your mind set in order to do the things you need to do. take action! now not later!! and put passion in what you do.
what I liked best about this story, I like his story about himself as a young man. I think he is todays Earl Nightgale. brainstorming, reseach first and finding your niche. Everything begins with an idea. All you need is a plan!! he puts a lot of passion in to the story and he wants you to do the same with what you want to do. just love the good news you can use from this book. it will inspire you!! it did me!!
he is stright to the point and does not waste your time. he motivates you to take action and build your business what ever it is just do it and crush it. you can feel his passion in the wine business and his desire to own the ball club and to giving you the push you need to do something for your self.
Don't think on any thing being nagitive, explore and create your future. with hobbies or things you like or love. make it your own and put your self into it and it is not like work at all but you are doing what you love.
he is a very personable man. he does not talk down to you but on your same level. and the advise is great! i love the coffee idea and the interview idea too. just a darn all around good motivation book
Motivating, informational, transformative.
In a league of its own. No other audio book has come close to this except maybe, Thank You Economy.
His enthusiasm and no B.S. style.
Yes and did so more than once.
Gary has lived the strategies explained in Crush-It. He explains how social media is different from advertising in print or TV. Then he outlines how to use social media to do what you love doing. It is clear and convincing.
I listened to
Gary is over the top. But his message is so convincing that it was enjoyable.
Hi story about the Jets sweater vest.
Yes. The author reads the book and he is very entertaining to listen to. He often goes off script so it sounds like you are listening to a podcast, not a book.
While it does have good advice the best part of this book is how he gets you excited about following your dreams.
I have not listened to any others. I assume they would be similar.
I wanted to go start a business and had to remind myself that it is not as easy as he makes it seem.
If you like business self help books that are like cheerleaders then listen to this one. Anyone who liked Four-Hour work week will like this.
The author/reader is a deeply unagaging character, as filled with a sense of his own
Almost anyone would have been a better presenter than the gentleman chosen. His manic manner of speech was truly annoying and distracting in extremis. Whatever his day-to-day presentational style, when speaking to his regular listeners, I found him absurd, bording on offensive. He delivered every word - from pithy insight to chapter number (yes, literally) - with equal urgency of tone and insistence of volume: all as if denying paedophilia or confronting a war criminal.
This book is not the declarative work of genius the author might appear to think. That said, more than six years into running my own business, I did find a couple of interesting ideas at which I shall be looking.
