Crush It Gary V

“Crush It” by Gary Vaynerchuk: Book Review

Bold, almost visionary statements. Specific information. Great inspirational storytelling.

All things that make Gary Vaynerchuk and his book “Crush It: Why Now is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion” 100% awesome!

This review is to state that I agree with pretty agree much everything Gary says in his book. Gary has succeeded in achieving a lot of what I call “quality fame” or being famous in some meaningful circles by what’s he’s done.

To be brief:

Gary tells his own story and always having an entrepreneurial spirit. He started young following his passions and learning how to monetize them along the way. He got older, helped grow the family biz, and then discovered the internet. Once he started his own vlog ( and learned how to effectively leverage social media, he really took off and arrived at where he is now.

Why I love “Crush It”:

  • Puts in plain terminology why everyone who’s passionate about something should be online and eventually be able to make money from it
  • Values hard & smart work
  • Stresses the importance of doing what you love in a very achievable way
  • Beats to death how to build your personal brand – vital for anyone who’s going to achieve anything worthwhile in this life
  • It’s motivational – hearing Gary’s story is inspiring
  • Action steps – gives you a checklist of everything you need to know and do, not just theory

Chances are if you’re reading this blog then this book would be interesting to you. You can read it in an hour or two. But it’s also one of those books that you’ll want to keep handy – not only for the step-by-step information, but also inspiration.

I get at least 10 new great ideas every time I open the book and read.

I recommend getting the audio version of the book. Gary throws in a lot of extra information when he goes “off the script”. It’s just an extra little bonus and you really get a feel for where he’s coming from and why what he’s sharing is so important.

Gary V is the Ultimate Motivator

It was because of this book that I started my vlog, Your Kick in the Pants – Motivating Moms to Move That Body! Gary got me all fired up and I just knew I had to do something. I already knew my passion (helping moms want to work out more) and all I needed was a place online to do just that.

With the help of my husband, we bought the domain, set up the website, and made my first video all in one evening. Since then it’s been fun connecting with women and inspiring them (and myself) to up our level of fitness.

Gary, on the slim chance, you’ve found this post, thank you very much! The book is awesome! The message is awesome! More people need to know these things in order to live their lives to the max!
