Want to join the “Crush It” Book Club?

Would you be interested in reading through the book “Crush It” by Gary Vaynerchuk? I put together a little business book club earlier this year and I’d like to take a stab at Round 2. The main idea is that during one month local business-minded people get together at a coffee shop once a week for 60-90 minutes to talk about a few chapters of a book. This is a short commitment, but good on a few levels. It helps us bounce around ideas, grow, learn together and form stronger relationships. This book is very well liked too, so I’m looking forward to absorbing the content together.

The last book we read was Trust Agents. Depending on our meeting location, we might just do locals only (I’ll keep you posted Bryan & Tom since you guys joined last time from Georgia & Alabama). We’ll see on that point.

I don’t have set times yet, though I’m thinking we can start in later July or the beginning of August on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 2-3:30pm. Let me know if you’re interested or if a different time works for you. I’d like to meet somewhere near the Rancho Cordova area or Sacramento. The best group size will be 8 or so people – and from different types of businesses. If it turns out that August is too busy for us based on vacations and such, then we’ll just make it happen in September when things theoretically slow down.

    I love this idea and have another friend in mind who might want to join in. If we’re voting, I’d love it if was in the Rancho area (easier to commit 2 hours weekly w/travel time). I could also put a call out in my newsletter to see if anyone else is interested, if you’re looking for more people (love the size you have in mind). Let me know if you’d like me to put some feelers out there. Would prefer starting in August/September. Thanks, Ryan!

      Barbara, I’d love to have you on board. Yes, we will do it very close to Rancho or in Rancho. Last time we met at City Hall in the Chamber board room, but I haven’t asked them yet. Are there any local Rancho Cordova businesses out there listening and wanting to host a group of eclectic business owners (or employees) for one month?

      If August, I can do Tuesdays – not Thursdays. Let’s see how things pan out with everyone’s schedule. I imagine we’ll know more very shortly. I like the time of 2pm because it’s easier to get to meetings later and we will miss any traffic too when driving home (even if that drive is short).

      Let’s wait on the feelers for right now to see how much buzz is generated in the next day or so. Then we’ll know if we need to email people and such. Thanks for your willingness to get the word out. Although if you have a friend or client that would be a good fit, go ahead and give your “pitch”.
