Publisher's Summary

Four-time New York Times best-selling 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 best seller 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 listeners to do.

In this lively, practical, and inspiring audiobook, 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 Musical.ly. 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.

53 Year Old is Crushing It!

I am 53 and I have built a social media marketing agency that caters to the automotive industry. I am an anomaly in this industry; however, I have defined goals and strategies to kill it in this arena. I am discovering how to develop my personal brand instead of building just the company brand. This book is perfect.

85% fluff and 15% value.

This is with most books, but for some reason I was really expecting this to be super dense. For me, it seemed just as sparse as most books because it was littered with story after story of anecdotal information. I personally prefer specific step-by-step strategies or fact based information.

There were definitely bits of gold throughout, but I got those more when Gary was talking, which is about 60% of the time. The rest are stories from others.

With that being said, maybe I missed something. So I’m giving it a re-listen because I had crazy high expectations! :)

I've never been more pumped about social media!

Great book! He goes over the main media platforms right now, their differences, and how to use each to your advantage. He uses real life examples that let you know it's possible and he makes up characters and scenarios that make it easy to see the world of possibilities of how you can make it work. One big thing here is that social media is a long term game but has great rewards! I've never been more pumped about social media! Now I'm going to go Crush It!

This will change your life

I usually am one of those people who by pass the reviewing but this is my only way to give back to you Gary! Listened to this right after crush it and I’ve never been so excited about the potential of my life. Such a captivating and content packed listen that was easy and fun to get through. Every second in this book is not wasted and contains such valuable insight without the fluff. Loved the alternating chapters with real life examples of people who took control of their life based on the foundational points in crush it. Just made it so much more inspiring, real and empowering that truly anyone has he ability to live a passionate life vs. your average business book with step by steps. Also enjoyed the imagine this segments at the end of each chapter that again reinforced the possibility to apply these practices to any passion. So real and so much value as always Gary. So unbelievably grateful that you share your knowledge with us to help others success. Thank you 🙏🏼

Modern Blueprint for the Wantrepreneur

This book might not get you rich in dolla dolla bills y’all but it will guide you on how to turn the power and reach of the internet/social media into your greatest asset. If you fantasize about putting yourself out there for the world to see but you’re stuck on how to go about it or market yourself or become your own brand Just. Get. The. Damn. Book. Like Gary says in the conclusion: it’s the last “business book” you’ll ever need. It’s up to us to take action beyond his words.

Very disappointed

A book completely filled with testimonials about his Crush It book. A waste of time and money.

I ended up increasing the narration speed to to try and get to good content...
I honestly didn't learn anything about social media marketing. Any motivation that I would have gained was ruined by all the testimonial reviews of his previous book.

I feel dooped and will be asking for a refund...

We will be known forever by the tracks we leave...

I believe there are times in life when you know you’ve witnessed history being made. You know when those individuals you thought were crazy end up being right. You just know that the words they spoke will stand the length of time. All the work Gary V. has done, the keynotes he’s given and words he’s penned have culminated into this book, this moment, at this time.

Read this book if you’re tired of living in mediocrity, working at a job you hate or if you keep telling yourself that things are just fine. This book will lift you up, bring reality front and center and cause you to think about the future in ways you’ve never dreamed of before.

Read this today to stay ahead of the technology of social media before it passes you by and makes your marketing efforts irrelevant.

Best book I’ve listened to in 2018

No Exaggeration!! I enjoyed this book more than I could ever have imagined. I took so much information and energy away from it.

It’s the first audio book I’ve listened to with the author going off script and putting in his two cents. It felt like we were having a conversation.

I loved it. I’m going to have this on repeat for the rest of my life!

The only book to read for anyone to change your destiny

I was so excited when the audio launched despite having the book as well. This is awesome content as it has a few updated tips since the book came out . This is not only for entrepreneurial minds to be able to listen to when you time poor like I am. I drive to work for 1 hour and will finish this audio in less than a week but most of all I will take from it is implementation to maximise the benefit of the little TIME we have today as Gary says time is our only currency-don’t waste it ! this audio is a fast track to absorbing the content and please do yourself a favour apply what you have listened to and get the value that is left on the table it is up to us to make that leap of faith definitely a book or audio on your must read list recommended

the content has little substance

Im afraid the content has very little substance. I guess it is meant for motivational purposes rather than going into details of building a successful business.

Not what I expected.

I expected this to be a book by Gary V. in parts it is, but a huge amount of it seems to be 'crowdsourced' stories of people who are 'crushing it' after reading Gary V's book, 'Crush it'. It's like one big, long ad for another book.

The stories are still inspiring (to a degree) and the narration etc is great (great to have Rich Roll in there), but if you are looking for a guidance the recurring theme seems to be to go and read 'crush it' instead.

Nothing against Gary V either, I'd highly recommend reading his book 'jab, jab right hook' instead.

Scott Duncan Coaching - building a personal brand will take time, effort and patience)

Crushing It is a brilliant audiobook!

I would totally recommend this audio book to anybody who wants to learn how to build a personal brand online, how others have managed to achieve amazing things with the advice they got from Gary Vaynerchuk in his other best seller ‘Crush It’.

I already purchased the ‘Crushing It’ ebook on Kindle but I knew I could count on Gary Vaynerchuck to give us more content, some off the cuff, exceptional nuggets in the audio that are not in the written book. Love it! Thanks Gary.

Not great but ok

The book is very repetitive in parts with the same format of telling stories of how people are crushing it. Great audible book if you’re only interested in media platforms as a start up. That said I do love Gary’s enthusiasm to help people try to start a business they are passionate about.

Reinventing the Audiobook

Thanks again Gary. Great value and content once again! A must read for anyone who wants to hustle, start a business, become an expert on a particular subject, offer value and grow their own personal brand!

I love the way you dip in and out of reading to provide live facts and figures as the industry changes so much.

I’d be interested to see if Gary adds to this as and when I re-listen.

Again thanks for the content and expert knowledge 👍🏼

Motivational Boost

Will listen to it again to get some notes down on paper. I wouldn't say it teaches you anything new but it does show proof of how branding and social media builds other businesses. Gary's voice also helps you digest the content so I would say if you like Gary or what he stands for you'll also like this book.

Crushing It

The simple fact that you can take away more than 1 nugget of gold from Gary Vee and those that you hear are crushing it and be able to implement straight away is worth a million times what you will pay for this book

Wow, this book really makes the mind switch into full speed

A friend recommended this book, & read it not knowing it was about social media. I don’t know much about social media platforms, so thought I’d continue reading to learn as my 10yr old son is interested.
Wow, half way through my mind turned to so many new things I could do for myself or at least try. Now I’m asking my son for advise on how these things work. Totally mind blowing. Never would I have thought about doing anything I have in mind now, without listening to the book. My mind darted off so many times I’m not sure how much I missed so going to start from the beginning again, do research & take notes. Thanks very much

A good book to get you into understanding social media’s possibilities

I’ve never really followed Gary, however noticed some of his social media posts of late and when I saw this book i thought I’d give it a listen.

Gary’s got a unique style and is confident in how he delivers his message as a self proclaimed pioneer of using social media to promote ones business.

He reviews the main social media platforms and their relevance/importance in the branding/business world of today, but also focusses on self growth and continually learning and identification of up and coming social media / technological opportunities.

I became interested in this book to better develop my marketing skills (of which I can say I have none) for my business and can say that this book has helped me draw up the plans for the foundations of my social media marketing plan. This book makes it clear there is a lot to learn by doing.

Now as Gary says, I’ve just got to hit the road and start “crushing it!”
