About the Book:

Are YOU a TRENDSETTER? By definition, a Trendsetter is not a follower. So, what is a Trendsetter? Is it a leader? Leadership can mean leading in thought, word or deed, or some combination of all three. In the Business World, thought has no future if bounded by inaction – commonly referred to as ‘analysis paralysis’ – so thought and deed are invariably intertwined. Now combine those two with the ‘word’ portion of the trifecta of thought, word and deed, and now…we have the prospect of leadership and success. So, are you a Trendsetter? You may be. There is no prescription for one, but you can compare your goals and achievements with the benchmarks made by those in this book. In this book, we give you a number of our Celebrity Experts® who are Trailblazers and Trendsetters. They have done it! These are successful experts who made their mark and share with you how they and their concepts developed. Can Trendsetting be emulated? Absolutely, but you, yourself, will have to personally work through the stages of thought, word and deed…just like these leaders have. May you be crowned by your definition of Success! What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. ~ Zig Ziglar

After such a successful release Christine Rae 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.
