Reese Richards, entrepreneur and marketing expert, recently hit two separate Amazon.com best seller lists with the new book, “The Next Big Thing: Top Trends From Today’s Leading Experts to Help You Dominate the New Economy.”
Orlando, Fla. – March 15, 2011 – Reese Richards, entrepreneur and founder of www.Bars-And-Bartending.com, recently joined a select group of America’s leading entrepreneurs and businesspeople to collaborate and co-write the business and marketing book titled, The Next Big Thing: Top Trends From Today’s Leading Experts to Help You Dominate the New Economy. The book was published by CelebrityPress™, a leading business and marketing book publisher founded by Nick Nanton, Esq. and business partner, JW Dicks, Esq.

Starting with his first business, a dating company called Organized Flirting, he went on to buy, build and sell an entertainment magazine, 24 Seven, start a live music bar named Bliss, an art company called Zennd, launch another national, bilingual entertainment magazine called +886, and build a supplements business operating in 12 countries.

The new book, The Next Big Thing: Top Trends From Today’s Leading Experts to Help You Dominate the New Economy was released on Thursday, March 10, 2011. It features forward thinking trends to help entrepreneurs and business people dominate the new economy.

On the day of release, The Next Big Thing reached best-seller status on Amazon.com, reaching #4 in both the Entrepreneurship and Communications categories.
The old adage states: “Driving forward while focusing on the rearview mirror will land you in an accident.” This also holds true in business. While it’s important to understand the past, the future is where the real opportunity lies. But how do you tell the difference between passing fads and profitable trends? The authors in this book aim to do exactly that. Forty-one leading experts across multiple industries have teamed up to share The Next Big Thing to help you profit in this new economy.
After such a successful release, Reese Richards will be inducted into The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best seller lists.

At age 7, Reese ran a 26-mile marathon in Montreal, Canada. When he was 8, he completed a 500-lap swim-a-thon and at 10, biked across half of Alberta, Canada through the mountains from Banff to Jasper to Red Deer. At the age of 14, he canoed the length of the Rideau River waterway in Ottawa, Canada. Onwards to age 15 where he won silver in the Ontario Provincial Boxing championships.
Looking for a fun, high-paying job after high school, Reese lucked out and got in as a bartender at a local hotel pub. After realizing the money to be made on the bar (in North America), he jumped into the bar industry with both feet, moving quickly to up the ranks to management.
Soon after graduating on the honor’s list from Business Marketing at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Canada, Reese got his first taste for travel – in Mexico. Then came Spain and Portugal. And then Asia – Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Hong Kong; finally settling for 6 years in Taiwan.
