– Gary Vaynerchuk, Crush It!: Why Now Is the Time to Cash In on 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.” – Gary Vaynerchuk, Crush It!: Why Now Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion

“I don’t want to hear about this 9 to 5 bullsh*t. I don’t want to hear about this two job thing, right? 9 to 5…I don’t have time. If you want this, if you’re miserable, or if don’t like it or you want to do something else, and you have a passion somewhere else. Work 9 to 5, spend a couple hours with your family, 7 to 2 in the morning is plenty of time to do damage. But that’s it…it’s not going to happen any other way.” – Gary Vaynerchuk

“If you want this, if you want bling-bling, if you want to buy the jets, if you wanna do sh*t… WORK…that’s how you get it.” – Gary Vaynerchuk
