I hope you like what I’ve been doing here at ScottLukaitis.com and on my other site NJ Motocross. If you want to see more I am active on Facebook and Twitter and even have a profile now on Google+. As social media grows, it changes and evolves. I’m still not quite sure what to think about Google+ but I’m interested to find out. If you want to take the ride with me stop by and check it out.
In case you were wondering I don’t really do much reading but I do get the opportunity to listen to listen to podcasts and audio books on a regular basis.
Several months ago I was called for jury duty. If you’ve never had the opportunity let me explain something to you about jury duty…you have a bunch of time to sit around and read, or in my case listen.
At that point I had heard a bunch about Gary Vaynerchuk but didn’t have the opportunity to read or listen to much of his work, just snippets here and there.
So with my trusty Ipod I downloaded his first book Crush It and prepared to be entertained. And entertained I was.
Vaynerchuk’s NO BS delivery and energy is unmatched. And his knowledge and insight of the current social trends is second to none.
He tells his story of starting off helping out at his Dad liquor store in Suburban New Jersey as a young kid bagging ice and turning their $4 million business into the behemoth $50 million business it now is.
Along the way Vaynerchuk discusses how in today’s internet society anyone can put their passions to work and create a business around it.
If you are interested in doing more with your life “Crush It” will give you that place to start and information and the tools to get there.
In my opinion “Crush It” is a must read or in my case listen.
