“If there's anything this book should teach you, it's that the only thing stopping you from achieving lasting career and life happiness is you.”
In his 2009 international bestseller, Crush It!, Gary insisted that a vibrant personal brand was one of the primary paths to entrepreneurial success. In Crushing It!, Gary explains why that's even more true today, offering his unique perspective on what has changed and what remains timeless. He also shares stories from other entrepreneurs who have grown wealthier-and not just financially-than they ever imagined possible by following Crush It! principles. The secret to their success (and Gary's) has everything to do with their understanding of social media platforms and their willingness to do whatever it takes to make these tools work to their utmost potential.
Crushing It! is a state-of-the-art guide to building your own path to professional and financial success, but it's not about getting rich. It's a blueprint for living life on your own terms.
