Gary Vaynerchuk's new book,Crush-It,is a great read for those interested in converting one's passion into something more. He has lots of insights on blogging, social networking, business and how to use these techniques and insights in growing not only a business but to enriching your personal life. It is important to find something you love to do and put your energy into that endeavor, hobby or business. If it's your passion, it's really not "work" in the classsic sense, it's enjoyable no matter the hours needed to make it happen. The key is to realize the thing you love to do is the thing you were meant to do. Once you find that, if you put in lots of time and hard work, you will succeed.
I was privileged to meet Gary last year and listen to many of his ideas on business and blogging. I have even recently incorporated a few of his suggestions from his book into this blog including the link on the sidebar for those interested in making an appointment with our office:
I love my profession and I love to blog about it here. I hope to develop professionally and personally by following my passion blogging here about Pediatric Dentistry. It takes long hours and hard work, but constant improvement and excellence is something to which we all should all aspire.
