Today’s 60-Second Book Brief: #AskGaryVee by Gary Vaynerchuk

Gary Vaynerchuk wrote the book #AskGaryVee to bring his bombastic advice from his online video show into book form. Here are our favourite pieces of advice on how to succeed as an entrepreneur.

First, know the difference between the Clouds and Dirt. The Clouds are your beliefs and philosophies that guide everything you do. The Dirt is executing the work. Do both incredibly well, and always keep your eye on both.

Second, when you are starting out — excel at sales. Cash flow is everything.

Third, if you want to be an entrepreneur, you need to hustle, hustle, hustle. And then hustle some more. When everybody else is chilling, you keep hustling.

Fourth, create content that is either entertaining, or useful. Then, make sure you engage around that content. It’s the only way you are going to succeed at social media unless you are already a celebrity.

Fifth, be self-aware. Create an environment where those around you can tell you like it is. Then, focus on what you do well, and then delegate the rest.
