As you know, freelancing is all the rage now. And with the high rate of unemployment, there is no wonder that people are trying to get themselves out there in this world of new media. Well, for those who wish to follow their passion and get paid for them I highly recommend Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion by Gary Vaynerchuck.

I own this book, and I can tell you that it is a quick read about everything that is the new media, placed before you in layman’s terms. He goes into detail on how now is the perfect time to turn oneself into a signature brand and connect with followers thru social media and the like. He also refers to the use of “sweat equity”, so one can turn one’s dreams into a reality.

I’ve been a fan of Gary’s for years now. Even though he’s from New Jersey (we won’t hold that against you), this young man has turned his family wine store into Wine Library , a 50 million dollar online enterprise. With podcasts and public appearances, from Jet’s games to Conan O’Brien (go, TeamConan), this guy has been proof positive that he practices exactly what he preaches.

Go pick this up now: Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion

Let me know what you think of the book – I’d really like to know if you enjoyed it like I did!
