If you are offended by profanity, do not watch the following video.
If, however, you don’t mind profanity and are looking for some encouragement to start doing (or to stay with) the things you love, this is a great talk from Gary Vaynerchuck. Gary is outspoken and swears a lot, but he’s an excellent storyteller, a great people reader, and an extremely hard working person. Business wise, he’s one of my role models.
The first part of the video is mainly about social media marketing. I enjoy the topic so I wouldn’t skip it. But, if you are pressed for time, start watching at 9:44. That’s the part all of us can relate to.
Build a business around the things you love most.
When you do something around the things you love the most, you’ll work the sixteen hours a day to make it successful, because you love that sh*t.
~ Gary Vaynerchuck
For more inspiration from Gary, here’s another good video. Never mind that it talks about entrepreneurs. It applies to writers as well. In today’s world, we are all entrepreneurs.
