My favorite quotes from the book Crush It!: Why Now Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion by Gary Vaynerchuk which I rated 4/5 on my Goodreads account:
Love your family, work super hard, live your passion.
Live your passion. What does that mean, anyway? It means that when you get up for work every morning, every single morning, you are pumped because you get to talk about or work with or do the thing that interests you the most in the world. You don’t live for vacations because you don’t need a break from what you’re doing—working, playing, and relaxing are one and the same. You don’t even pay attention to how many hours you’re working because to you, it’s not really work. You’re making money, but you’d do whatever it is you’re doing for free.
There no longer has to be a difference between who you are and what you do.
Even if your ambitions are huge, start slow, start small, build gradually, build smart.
Developing your personal brand is key to monetizing your passion online. Developing your personal brand is the same thing as living and breathing your résumé.
Quality is a tremendous filter. Cream always rises, my friends, no matter how many cups of coffee you pour.
Know yourself. Choose the right medium, choose the right topic, create awesome content, and you can make a lot of money being happy.
