In addition to being a world-class business leader and a social media guru, Gary Vaynerchuk is also a four-time New York Times bestselling author. Throughout his career he has written several books, with one of his latest ones being about how great entrepreneurs build their businesses from scratch.
„Crushing It!“ by Gary Vaynerchuk is a must-read for anyone who wants to step into the world of business or who is already in it. The book exposes tons of success stories and tools to tackle the digital world. The book is actually an update to a piece called „Crush it“ Gary wrote in 2009. Since then, the internet has grown even more, and the consumption of social media has basically taken over our society. It has allowed people to reject the safer, more predictable life paths in favor of pursuing their dreams by building successful businesses and personal brands.
According to Gary, entrepreneurship has just recently become popular, mainly because of the internet maturing. However, it is crucial for one not to just follow the trend, as entrepreneurship is not for everyone – self-awareness is the key. The main purpose of this book is to get people to realize there is a gateway to happiness. The question you have to ask yourself is whether you are enjoying yourself in the process of pursuing your goals. If not, you must rethink your life strategy.
Gary has always mentioned that his ultimate goal is to buy the New York Jets, a professional American football team he has supported since he was a little kid. Although it might seem like an unrealistic goal for most people, the main reason he might actually pull it off is because he enjoys the work, the grind, the ups and downs – the process along the way.
Gary has also emphasized in his content that it is important for one to actually start putting all the knowledge into practice. You can consume all the information you want, and become highly educated, but if you do not actually use it, you are losing. This book is written to not only educate you, but to also give you the push you need to start putting your ideas into actions. The way you start your journey to happiness is by actually doing it.
Now, you might have some negative factors in your life such as expectations from parents or pressure from the society that hinder you from taking the risk of doing what you actually want. However, the last thing you want is to be 50 years old with a feeling of regret. You have to make yourself happy before you can make everyone else happy.
