Crush It

5 Stars!

✩✩✩✩✩

This book was written in 2009 before The Thank You Economy, but I read this one second.  Still great even out of order.

Crush It is about making a living out of doing what you love, which is kind of my thing.

I am SUCH a laid back person compared to the author that I sort of felt like a slacker slouching in bed reading this great book.  In many other ways, we are very similar, and I found myself relating to much of what he said.

My favorite chapter was Chapter 9.

The advice about caring deeply about your subject and people and how to build a business around what you care most about is timeless, but I also enjoyed Gary Vaynerchuk’s take on communicating online in 2009.  The internet is so much different now four years later, but you will be surprised about how almost all of what he said pertaining to the internet is still completely on target.

If you loved The Thank You Economy, you will love Crush It.  If you have not read either, start with one and I guarantee you will want to read the other next.

Read my review of The Thank You Economy here on Riley and James or on Dr. Rebecca Tudor’s blog Catalyst Vets on which it was posted as a guest blog last week.  Same post!  But be sure to check out Dr. Tudor’s excellent blog either way!

That one comes out at the end of November so I should be able to fit in reading and reviewing a few books from the Veterinary Economics 24 Books to Change Your Life” list before then!
