Book Review: #AskGaryVee - Relentless Hustle and Other Advice from Gary Vaynerchuk
Recently, I was riding in the car with a young adult, advising her on business and life. For several months she's wanted to start her own business, but to date she's not done it.
I aggressively challenged her that she was not prepared to do what it takes to start her business. She was not willing to do what it takes to see every barrier as an opportunity or see every barrier as one that needed to be vanquished. She was lacking in hustle, smart hustle.
Every idea and suggestion I gave her was an excuse as to why she could not start her business. Some of the reasons were in fact very good, but overall, she's simply lacking in smart hustle.
AskGaryVee is a book about relentless hustle, leadership, management, social media, running a family business and so much more. I mean a LOT MORE.
What makes the book special is that Gary Vaynerchuk, the book's author, is the real deal. He's built at least two businesses and has his fingers on the pulse of many investments and projects, including the #AskGaryVee Show, a 15 minute "Internet show" of advice, humor, energy and passion.
One of #AskGaryVee's chapters is about hustle - a favorite topic of ours at Smart Hustle Magazine.
While so many small business owners and entrepreneurs want to be a "success", many are not willing to put in the hard work that it takes to have that success. Gary writes that when you look into their lives, they're spending time watching TV or playing games on their smart phone, etc.
One of the most important things you can do to "hustle" is to launch your product. Don't wait until it's perfect - it'll never be perfect.
Today there are so many options to market a product (or service). You can buy ads on Facebook (or another platform) for pretty cheap, or you can just publish amazing content for very cheap (or no cost in dollars to you - just a cost in time).
This is just a snippet of the great content that's in #AskGaryVee. Pick up a copy as a reference and buy a few more for others while you're at it.
