Gary Vaynerchuk planning to swing back by Portland on the Crush It! book tour

[HTML1]Usually, I’m pretty last minute about letting you know when relevant authors are in town. I was pretty tardy with the news on dooce speaking in Portland. And I didn’t do much better with a heads up on Sarah Lacy’s user generated book tour stop.

But this time, I feel like I’m actually going to give you fair warning: Gary Vaynerchuk—affectionately known as @garyvee—will be stopping by Powell’s Downtown as part of the junket for his new book, Crush It! But not until October 19—so you’ve got plenty of time to prep. Read More
