Would you recommend a book you haven’t even read?  I finally got my hands on a copy of Crush It! and read it over the weekend, (luckily it is a quick read) but I had already recommended it to over 200 people during speaking engagements in the past few weeks. Here is why.
Gary Vaynerchuk is my favorite answer to the following complaint/question from small business owners, “Using new media to promote my business takes so much time, what can it really bring to my business in the way of revenue and profit?”
Gary Vaynerchuk helped turn his Dad’s local liquor store into a $60 million dollar business.   He launched Wine Library TV and has become a phenomena by genuinely connecting with people from afar through his online wine show, blog and participation on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.  Lately he has been connecting with his fans up close and personal as he zigzags the US (and next month Europe) on a massive tour to meet his fans and promote his book.  Crush It is already in the top 5 on both the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal Best Sellers lists.
Gary’s “secret sauce” for success is HUSTLE (relentless hard work day and night!)  How hard are you willing to work for it?
