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 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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Gary Vaynerchuk is a social media guru, marketing evangelist, and all-around sales genius who’s made millions by shaping an indelible personal brand. In this high-energy reading, he shows how others have reached a similar level of success—both financial and personal—by adapting his inspirational principles to their own lives. Best of all, Vaynerchuk often interrupts his reading to ad-lib a bit of added insight with his trademark infectious optimism and off-the-cuff honesty. Thanks to his passionate, persuasive and hugely entertaining performance, the Crushing It! audiobook...well, crushes it. GREAT
Gary is a stud! Do yourself a favor and buy this and then do yourself a second favor and download his podcast. Great material and super down to earth.
No Chapter Titles - just Numbered tracks!
So far this book is mostly stories about people who took his original book - Crush It - and became successful. I wonder if this Crushing It audiobook gets back to Gary and his guidance - maybe Track 20???, not sure what the other chapters are bc the book doesn’t have chapters or chapter titles. It has simply “Track 1” “Track 12” etc. not helpful. I think I’m going to try to get a refund, then buy Crush It - the original book.
Great book, UNDER-rated
Dont listen to the narrow minded reviews saying it gives too many hypotheticals, its a 8 hour long audiobook with so many new ideas and concepts. People want everything given to them, read the book and take action!
