2010: The Year I Begin to Crush It!


Regardless of everything, you need to read the book pictured above.

My man Josh Nason of Ring, Ropes and Cage has become my personal Yoda when it comes to expanding my knowledge-base and understanding of the world I'm trying to break into, and I have to say that as good as On Writing was, Crush It!, well, crushed it.

This book is going to change my life, and I say that without any asterisks, hyperbole or pretenses.

Basically, this book not only confirmed all the fundamental beliefs I had about my passion for Mixed Martial Arts and the opportunity I have to make a career out of it, but also delivered a blueprint for how to do that.

What makes it even crazier is that a number of the steps and strategies are the little things that I already do, like Facebook the bejesus out of everything I write, and tweeting all my posts...

Gary Vaynerchuk - the author - has instantly launched to the top of my "Awesome People I Know About That You've Never Heard of Before" list, though I recommend you go out and get familiar with him.

D'you know how we all show up at work grumpy that we have to be there? We don't have to, and I'm not going to, thanks to Gary Vaynerchuk, Josh Nason and the dedication and passion I have to make my career something I enjoy, and not just a means to an end.

I give a lot of random advice on this blog, but if you've never listened to anything I've said before, listen to this: read Crush It!

The damn thing is only 130-pages long and cost under $25... and could change your life.

If you don't believe me, keep watching and see for yourself.

I have been following Gary Vaynerchuk for a while now but I have not had a chance to read Crush It! When it comes to motivation Gary V is the man to watch. Check out anything he does... from Wine Library TV to his love for the NY Jets. He's one passionate dude and I sure that quality oozes contagiously from his book. It's next on my list of books to read in 2010.

Side note... I read Ignore Everybody by Hugh MacLeod late in 09 and found it really inspirational as well.

Hey, thanks so much for posting this original and unique article. I can't tell you how many times I've visited blogs
from Google and they've got nothing on them but crappy ads and false information that's unereliable. I don't
normally comment on blogs, but I just thought that i'd drop you a line and tell you that I think you're doing a fantastic job.
Thanks! if you want, you can check out my blog at Stihl Chainsaws and

I'm the kind of guy who enjoys to taste unused stuff. Currently I'm making my own solar panels. I'm making it all alone without the help of my staff. I am utilizing the net as the only path to acheive this. I discovered a truly brilliant site which explains how to build photovoltaic panels and so on. The website explains all the steps required to building pv panels.

I am not sure about how accurate the info given there iz. If some people over here who had xp with these things can have a look and give your feedback in the thread it would be great and I'd extremely treasure it, because I truly would love to try [URL=http://solar-panel-construction.com]solar panel construction[/URL].

Thanks for reading this. U guys rock.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
