I don’t usually do book reviews, but this one has had such a huge affect on my life, I have to share it.
Crushing It! is the sequel to Crush It!, written by Gary Vaynerchuk, one of my personal favourite entrepreneurs. I read the book in just over 2 weeks and I will definitely be re-reading it when I return from travelling the world and can start to taking some huge steps towards my goals.
I’m gonna try to make this as clear as possible. If you’re an entrepreneur, BUY this book. If you’re not enjoying your job, BUY this book. If you want to live a happy life, BUY this book.
This book is for everyone. I’m going to recommend it to my sister, my parents, my girlfriend, my grandparents… pretty much everyone around me. I can honestly say this book has a very good chance of changing your life.
The first half of the book is mainly filled with success stories from entrepreneurs who read Gary’s Crush It! and have since contacted Gary about their success. This book is packed with real life cases of people who weren’t successful – who weren’t enjoying their lives, and have gone on to achieve their dreams. Some are making millions, others not as much. The main thing is everyone interviewed in this book is where they want to be in life.
The second half of the book is where Gary starts to get technical. Chapter by chapter, Gary goes in depth on each social media platform, such as Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, etc… He also mentions Voice First, an upcoming technology which involves voice controlled devices such as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. He explains how to utilise each platform for growth and success. The reason I love this book (and Gary Vee for that matter) so much is because it’s not full of crap – so many business books out there are full off waffle, and they don’t offer any actual techniques or methods for you to use, which can often leave you sitting there thinking, what am I actually supposed to do though? Crushing it! contains step by step methods you can use to grow on each platform. Gary throws tonnes of value into this book, worth way more than the £15 price tag. Some of these tactics I’ve started to deploy and am already seeing results from.
The best thing about this book is that it contains value for EVERYONE. You can be a 25 year old digital marketing consultant, an 86 year old restaurant manager, or a Mum with 5 children looking to peruse a hobby, I can promise you with all my heart that Crushing It! will provide value for you. I strongly believe it is possibly the best money I’ve ever spent. Once again, BUY this book, and thank me later.
Thanks for reading,
