A Contest With Gary Vaynerchuk: How Do You Crush It?

Gary Vaynerchuk (vay-ner-chuk) is the man. He crushes it, daily.


However, as many of you may know, he didn’t start at the top. His hustle, ambition, drive and passion helped him turn his parent’s liquor store into an industry leader, he started Wine Library TV where his viewership has reached over 80,000 a day and is a business and social media guru. Through this success, he recently landed a book deal in which he wrote, Crush It, Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In On Your Passion. Set to hit the shelves October 13th, I’ve spoken with Gary’s (equally as gregarious and baller) team about helping him with his book launch.

This is where you come in. In conjunction with Gary Vaynerchuk and Crush It, we’re hosting a contest but it involves each of you and believe me, the reward is worth it.

How Do You Crush It? Rules:

  • Take this quote from Gary in Crush It: Skills are cheap, passion is priceless,” and write a blog post about how you’re crushing it, your dreams to crush it, and what this phrase means to you.
  • Post your response starting from today to October 9th (timeframe: 2 weeks to participate). Note: Anyone can participate, no matter the content on your blog. Just as long as you include the quote from Gary’s book and write by October 9th.
  • Head back here and leave a link of your post in the comments, so I can track and monitor and you can hear how other people crush it. Gary, his team and I will pick the post with the most crush it-stiege and announce the winner after October 9th.
  • The winner will receive a free copy of Gary Vaynerchuk’s Crush It, autographed by Gary to the winner, plus an extra special message and attention to the winner from Gary!


I’m really excited about offering this to the community. Gary inspires me daily and if anyone knows how important it is to build a community and have their support, it’s Gary. He has opened up launching his book with ideas from his following (e.g. this contest).

Just like Gary says in Crush It, “Creating community–that’s where the bulk of your hustle is going to go and where the bulk of your success will be determined.”

E-mail me if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing how you crush it!
