Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion by Gary Vaynerchuk
Gary "Vee"'s 'Crush It!' is one of the best, by the best. Vaynerchuk practically invented the new age term of "hustling", and through his many social mediums, has promoted and built his own self-brand. This audiobook was one of the first in this post that really drove me to build out and focus on my side hustles.
This book is synonymous with Amway and Multi-level marketing. Once upon a time I was given a cassette tape featuring just a small portion of this book, and the story resonated. 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad' is used throughout the world to suck you in to multi-level marketing programs, because it works. But that's only the first few chapters... If you've heard the story before, then you'd be surprised to hear that this book goes beyond and teaches you the importance of acquiring assets and limiting your liabilities. If you want to be truly rich, you need to be money smart, and this book will help you with the basics you never learned in school or college.
Wouldn't it be nice to only work 4 hours a week? Truth is, you probably won't ever get to that point; and this book does NOT aim to get you there. What Ferriss has done here, is provided an insight into the 'new rich'. After listening to the audiobook, it was evident I would need to listen over and over, and read the kindle version a few times; you'll pick up a lot of great tools from this book to implement into your daily life - from simple tricks like reminding yourself to be productive and when to check your emails, through to automating mundane and repeatable tasks
