SPRINGFIELD, NJ - The crowd wound around the entire first floor and second floor of the spacious Wine Library store on Saturday. By noontime over one thousand fans had entered the store.  Most of those in line came to by a book and meet its author, Gary Vaynerchuck who also helped grow his family’s business, the Wine Library, from $4 million to $60 million in sales.

Vaynerchuk’s most recent book is “Crushing It!: How Great Entrepreneurs Build Their Business and Influence-and How You Can, Too”.

The wait to get a signed copy of the book was easily over an hour but the mood of the crowd was jovial. The wait appeared to be worth it for the fans as Gary spent a little time with each person often signing multiple copies. Lots of “selfies” were taken.
