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.

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! :)

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...

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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 👍🏼

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.

Giving free value

Gary continues to provide the people with so much value that it is basically free! Also this audio book is so good because he’s jumping out of script sometimes to give the listeners more info on the current state of social media etc.
However, it would be cool if all the influencers themselves would read their stories from the book. ;)

thought provoking

I'm glad Gary narrated it himself and added some off topics. there are lots of stories which are read by other people which stern up ideas in your head. I probably need to listen a couple of times as my mind wanders onto applying and I forget to listen. will go back and catch the parts I missed. I like the way that each media tool was a chapter and then followed with application ideas.

I read the book, I had to get the audio version!

This books is an absolute game changer! So relevant in today’s society! Some points that people will look back in 10-20 year time and go wow, he was bang on re: social media. He has the track record; just checkout his prequel book 9 years ago, Crush It and then read the results noted in this one... I mean listen! Highly recommend!

Gary V is a masterclass

No nonsense wisdom from the master. Love the work and tips to leverage social for your brand. I really like the examples from people who have crushed it that are aged pre social. It’s good to see fellow grey beards out there leveraging a younger mans tools. Well done GV.

Awesome!

An inspiration book that will be the go to for me for years to come. I love the encouragement to embrace technology - it’s spinning my kids out that I’m already on several social media formats. It is helping with clarity on my purpose and there is so much more for me to do, now with the confidence to do it. A must read for anyone, esp kids to inspire them to a life other than society’s expectations. Thank you Gary
