When I launched my podcast Entrepreneurs On Fire back in 2012 I never dreamed of it becoming what it is today, and I certainly never imagined I’d one day be featured in a book by Gary Vaynerchuk titled Crushing It!: How Great Entrepreneurs Build Their Business and Influence – and How You Can, Too.

Gary is a part of my morning Flash Brief; I tune in to his videos at least a couple of times per week; and if you were to pull an earbud away from me at any given moment throughout the day, you might hear him going off on one of his rants.
He might not be for everyone, but I know he speaks the truth when it comes to the type of mindset it takes to crush it as an entrepreneur.
One example of this is in Chapter 4 of Crushing It (affiliate link). Gary writes:
Every day I meet people who swear they are going to start their own “thing.” Most won’t. I asked my team to give me a list of the most common reason they’ve heard, whether in the comments section of our content or in their interactions with other aspiring entrepreneurs, for failing to crush it.
He continues to list off about 20 of the most common reasons, and I challenge you to never be the one who uses one (or more) of them as an excuse to not pursue your dreams.
Freedom is much more important than excuses.
I’m sure you’d agree?
If so, I strongly encourage you to grab Crushing It! and start putting those excuses behind you.
I’ve followed Gary for a really long time, and I admire a lot about his hustle and what he’s created. To say I’m honored to be featured in both the intro of Crushing It and in Chapter 14 on podcasting would be an understatement.
The insights he shares, plus the inspiring stories others share throughout Crushing It makes it the perfect read for every entrepreneur, no matter where you might be on your journey.
So if there’s one book you should have on your MUST READ list right now, it’s Crushing It!
