Are You Ready to Crush It!?

Well as most of you know, I was a speaker at the DSA Communications and Internet Marketing seminar last week, speaking on the topic of creating a social media strategy.  It was an awesome experience, and I met some incredible people in the direct selling industry who are leading the way in helping this industry embrace social media.

crush-it-resize-204x300I was super excited to receive a copy of Gary Vaynerchuk’s book Crush It! at the conference.  If you don’t know him, Gary is one of the leaders in the social media field, and has experienced tremendous success using social media to build his own business.  I sweet-talked John Oates from Vayner Media into giving me a 2nd copy for me to giveaway to one of you, my fabulous readers!

    Jen,
    This book is the BEST! I ordered a copy and read thru the whole thing in a few hours; couldn’t put it down. What a shot in the arm! This will help me with my new year goal setting, for sure! Thanks so much for recommending.

    “Crush It” – that is what I need to do in 2010. Crush my insecurities, Crush my procrastination, Crush my occasional lack of motivation, Crush my time wasters and get on with making my business Crush Resistent! Years ago I was at the top of the game, now with all of the new technology of FB, LinkedIn and Twitter, I am so far behind that I need to catch up and get back in the game! I believe a resource like Crush It will be a valueable tool in my Direct Sales Library! That is why I would like to be a winner today! Thank you for all that you have already shared and taught us along the way, and I look forward to many more valueable pieces of information from you!

    Hi Jennifer. I’ve very recently decided not to go for a traditional job at an association (my profession) like I was planning to when I was laid off. I’ve been working with a coach and have decided to make my own career. Not only am I excited but it feels soooo right. I haven’t been buying books lately (minimal budget) so I haven’t bought Gary’s, but have been dying to read it. Perhaps this is my lucky day!

    I would love to win this book. I have learned so much from you, Jennifer and I must say that when you make a suggestion it has always proven to be worth it. Thank you for everything you share. I can’t tell you how much you have helped me this year. Pick me!! (see my hand up in the air)

    There was a direct seller named Heather
    Whose book wish list wasn’t light as a feather
    Finding time to read
    Was very hard indeed
    But she did it no matter the weather

    On Jen Fong’s blog she did look
    And indeed she saw this great book
    So she knew it was time
    To invent a fun rhyme
    So her contest entry really would cook.

    I would love to win this book, because I am always looking for ways to help others grow their businesses. I would also love to learn how to grow my own business through social media. I just learned about social media through you, Jennifer, and I thoroughly enjoyed your class. There was so much great information that I just didn’t know where to begin. As a new MLM consultant, and new to social media I believe that this book would help me grow as a leader. I would also be willing to recirculate the book when I am finished.

    “Crush It” would undoubtedly give us valuable inspiration and ideas to employ in our social media campaign. We’ve focused the past 3 months on Facebook, our blog and Twitter and the results have been outstanding. We started our business 25 years ago and have built an amazing customer base. Social marketing is enabling us to connect with our customers like we never were able to before. We will continue to learn, continue to grow and continue to engage…a passionate adventure, for sure!

    Jennifer: I’ve been looking for this book at my local booksellers without success. Gary’s a wine guy, I’m a wine gal so that’s why I’d like to win this book!!!

    Even if you don’t win this book – GET IT! His Appenix A, page 135, is worth the book alone as it details an exact platform to use in putting together your online business strategy.

    And, make sure you have a passion about this method of building a business. It is a business plan, your passion, and following Gary’s outline that makes it happen!

    Thanks Jen!

    EXPECT Success!
