I retired the Personal Branding Award series a few months ago and said I was going to start a new series…. well, this is it. I want to interview people who are doing something DIFFERENT.
There is an irony I live with every day. Some people think I am hear to help you land your next gig… to find your dream job.
You see, I personally don’t think a dream job exists… not in the way it did a few decades ago. Even if you find the dream job you might not have it after 6 months or 6 years.
You are always in transition, always a job seeker, and thus, always CEO of Me, Inc.
Part of that, as I’ve mentioned before, is to figure out personal income security.
That’s what this series is about – thinking outside the box of “I’m getting my dream job soon!” to “I think there are other ways to crack this (income security) nut!”
Welcome the first person in the series – Gary Vaynerchuk (aka, GaryVee).
Gary is beyond a rockstar, although he’ll deny it. His energy makes me think all I’m suited for is a government job… but he claims it is not the craziness or energy that makes you WIN. No, not win, that makes you CRUSH IT! Crush it is the name of his new book, which should start shipping today.
I interviewed Gary for about 45 minutes, you can listen on the BlogTalkRadio channel. Lots of gems to apply to your own career here.
And check out his book Crush It - it’s less than $15 at Amazon. I’ve got mine in the mail and I’m anxious to get into it!
