New Book, 'EDGY Conversations,' Sets the Record Straight for Success in Life

GREENVILLE, SC--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2014) - International business strategist Dan Waldschmidt has published a revolutionary new book, "EDGY Conversations: How Ordinary People Achieve Outrageous Success," (www.EdgyConversations.com).

"It seems like my generation has traded the hard-work mentality of our forefathers and tried to philosophize a solution around '7-step business programs' and inbound social-media sales initiatives that ultimately do not work," says Waldschmidt, whose consulting firm, Waldschmidt Partners International, solves complex marketing and business strategy problems for savvy companies all over the world.

"That kind of advice just engenders a bunch of narcissistic, lazy whiners who wonder why customer loyalty is at an all-time low."

Waldschmidt, in his early 30s, whose EDGY Conversations blog is called one of the top sales sites on the internet by Dow Jones, says working "smarter" is a myth; we need to work harder and be better people in general.

EDGY Conversations is a gut-wrenchingly honest, no-holds-barred discussion about confronting and fixing the beliefs and behaviors that limit one's ability to be amazing. It tackles head-on the uncomfortable yet powerful truth that pain, fear and love have a huge impact on success. It comes with a workbook to facilitate putting ideas into action, and is available as a high-quality printed edition or in ebook form.

The book features more than 100 stories of ordinary people who became extraordinary, including a master chef, a World War II veteran, a 15-year-old girl, a homeless retired paramedic, an Australian potato farmer and a shoe executive -- all of whom did the unthinkable and forever changed their corner of the world.

"EDGY Conversations is unlike any other book I ever read," writes Amazon reviewer Elinor Stutz, who gave it five stars. "Should you be at a low point, mid-way in your career, or wondering if you will ever find success -- you must Read This Book. The stories are nothing short of amazing..."
