Stephen Van Vreede recently hit two Amazon best-seller lists with the new book, “UNcommon”
Fairpoint, NY – June 24, 2015 – Stephen Van Vreede recently joined Brian Tracy and a select group of business leaders from around the world to co-author the book titled “UNcommon.” The book was released on June 11, 2015 by CelebrityPress™ – a leading business book publisher.
On the day of release, UNCommon reached best-seller status in two Amazon categories – reaching as high as #16 in: “Sales and Selling.” The book also reached best-seller status in the “Marketing” category. Stephen Van Vreede contributed a chapter titled “Building Uncommon Protection Into Your Role in Corporate America.”
Stephen Van Vreede helps his technical client craft and communicate their unique story (“personal brand”) and leverage the power of networking in today’s complex job market. Before becoming an entrepreneur, he spent his days climbing the corporate ladder at a GE Capital Company, where he engineered the growth and rapid technological advancement of a large-scale international operation.
Struck by the volume of candidates who struggled to present themselves well in professional interviews, Stephen decided to look into how to help. Even more surprising, was the realization that corporate hiring and retention policies resulted in an often convoluted and chaotic process (what he calls corporate “goo”) that left hiring managers and candidates frustrated and confused. With his wife, Sheree, in 2001, Stephen decided to jump off the corporate ladder and embark on an entrepreneurial adventure in the résumé and career services field, where he could be an advocate for professionals.
Over the past 14 years, Stephen has shaped his member solutions to succeed in an ever-changing market but with unique differentiation and value delivery at the core of all client member messaging. Starting out under the No Stone Unturned umbrella, where they served professionals across a wide spectrum of industries, he and Sheree soon recognized a gap in the career services industry in serving the technology, manufacturing, and engineering markets and knew they could fill that gap.
Thus, ITtechExec was conceived, where Stephen now serves as President and Chief Solutions Architect. He and his specialized team work with technical professionals, managers, and executives with 15+ years of experience. Stephen and Sheree have recently also launched NoddlePlace to focus on emerging technical professionals with 5–15 years of experience. At both ITtechExec and NoddlePlace, they not only craft résumés but also portfolio solutions, which are proving to be much more effective in the technical arena. In addition, they offer one-of-a-kind, “concierge” NoNonsense® job search agent solutions that build immediate momentum in the marketplace for their members once their brand messaging is in place.
CelebrityPress™ describes the book:
“Common” can be defined as ordinary while “uncommon” suggests rarity. However, combining Common Sense with Uncommon Knowledge has the potential to produce winners.
While Common Sense has been noted to be in short supply and Uncommon Knowledge hard to come by, the Celebrity Experts® in this book have combined the two to produce high rates of success in their fields. If you are looking to accomplish personal, worthy goals, a helping hand will get you there faster. In addition, a mentor will invariably get you there at less cost than if you try to make your own way, helping you to avoid errors that may be time-consuming or costly, or both. Succeeding requires the attributes of hard work, sound planning, action and perseverance-while combining common sense and uncommon knowledge as a part of the process.
This book presents a panel of CelebrityExperts® including: Financial Consultants, Wealth Managers, Retirement, Investment and Health Specialists, Realtors®, Marketers, Coaches and other entrepreneurial specialists. They have all attained success in their fields and would be pleased to mentor you on your journey to attain your goal(s). You need not be alone… You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.
After such a successful release, Stephen Van Vreede 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.
