Melissa Whitaker International Founder Melissa D. Whitaker Hits Amazon Best-Seller Lists with “Beat the Curve.”

Melissa D. Whitaker recently hit two Amazon Best-Seller lists in the United States and Canada with “Beat the Curve.”

Schaumburg, IL– February 1, 2016 – Melissa D. Whitaker, founder of Melissa Whitaker International  recently joined a select group of business experts and entrepreneurs from around the world, along with Brian Tracy to co-write the book, Beat The Curve: The World's Leading Entrepreneurs and Professionals Reveal Their Secrets To Outperforming The Status Quo in Health, Wealth and Success.”  CelebrityPress™, a leading business book publisher, released the book on January 21, 2016.

On the day of release, Beat the Curve reached best-seller status in two Amazon categories including #10 in “Direct Marketing” and #15 in “Marketing for Small Business.” Melissa D. Whitaker contributed at chapter called “The Five Pillars For An Unstoppable Competitive Advantage.”

CelebrityPress™ describes the book:

Beat The Status Quo! Those who wish to improve are willing to make changes, others are dreamers. 

 As Henry Ford so aptly put it: "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got." While this does not mean you have been unsuccessful, aspirations to move to a higher standard will require changes. What changes can a book like this offer?

Beat The Curve is a compilation of authors who have outperformed the status quo. Their fields are different and their approaches are varied. Their ability and passion for their work, coupled with their perseverance, have allowed these Celebrity Experts® to soar to a higher level. While they have developed their successes in different ways, there are the common threads throughout. Why not be guided by a mountain climber who has been to the top before? To quote the Chinese philosopher, Confucius: Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure. 

With the expert help available in the pages of this book, you will not only learn from their successes and their failures, but you will now have their guidance to help Beat The Curve. 

After such a successful release, Melissa D. Whitaker will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best seller lists.
