Report Published: On Launch
#Ask Gary Vee, perhaps unsurprisingly given its origin in a YouTube show of the same name, reads like a frank, yet friendly, chat on how to run a business, gain traction and keep your fans coming back for more. Saying that Gary’s book is well worth both your time and money, is nothing short of an understatement, because this book is the no BS Business 101 class that every up and coming entrepreneur, marketer or creative needs to attend.
You want a business mentor? Buy this book. True to his intense personality, Gary covers everything from family priorities to buying the New York Jets. That doesn’t mean that you aren’t going to learn about sales or marketing, but rather how those sales and marketing need to fit into your personality, your dreams and family responsibilities. At the end of the day, a real personality drives a product and increasingly, in this information rich world, it matters how that product is packaged.
Bottom line, #Ask Gary Vee won’t steer you wrong but you going to have work hard at the “hustle” to see results. One thing I do know for sure, and something commented on in the book, if Gary finds out your read it (because you raved about this QUAKE report and his book all over social media), he will check on you… which by the way, is exactly what a good mentor does. So it goes without saying, still looking for one, well you know what you have to do… click on the book’s image and part with some cash. It really is that simple and effective.
“The world moves quickly. When it comes to tech or media, what was true only six months ago, may not be true anymore.”
“You’re always one great piece of content away from changing your life.”
“Complaining fixes nothing, only taking action does.”
It might seem strange but the quake happened when I realised I could raise the profile of QUAKE Books and our Field Agent community by Tweeting those fans who had asked Gary a question and therefore contributed to the book and the ensuing 4.7 magnitude bookquake. That is one way of cementing the apprentice/master relationship – by reading and putting into action that which you have been taught. I look forward to you dear Field Agents doing the same to me and other people in your journey of becoming 1% better today, compared to yesterday.
Other than Gary Vaynerchuk getting close to a 100 extra Tweets, I will hopefully be able to launch my first targeted marketing campaign without the premium prices. Once again, never underestimate the power of having the right book in your life or in your business.
