BIO

Ms. Schwartz was born and raised in the Bronx, NY and has lived her teenage and most of her adult life in nearby Connecticut.  She moved to Nashville, TN roughly eight years ago with a job transfer at a Fortune 500 company.  After 13 years of employment with the company and a very unkind economy, Schwartz was laid off after 7 days of employment with the new branch of the company.   Since she purchased a condominium, she decided to commit to a long term stay in the famed Music City. Schwartz jumped on the opportunity to take a much needed break and pursue her interest in photography.  After traveling to exotic locales such as Aruba, Bermuda, Turks & Caicos Islands she seized the day by capturing a photo from a departing cruise ship in the New York Harbor of the The World Trade Center Towers.  This rare perspective resulted in country music star Alan Jackson making a personal request to have the photo framed along with his autographed lyrics of "Where were You when the World Stopped Turning?" to auction at Richard Marx's Cystic Fibrosis Benefit. 

Being involved with the media and promotion of that benefit got Schwartz interested in marketing again.  So, she harnessed that creative energy into marketing clients via blogs, SEO writing, and social networking.  By listening carefully to her clients' goals and wishlists, she further developed the company to include administrative services to capitalize on the economic downturn.

Schwartz further explains, "My services include different packages such as setting up, maintaining, and marketing through blogs along with creating posts and most importantly, engaging the client to be involved in the marketing effort."  By employing freelance writers and admin specialists, Schwartz found she was able to target her services to a wide client base including writers who are in search of marketing for their recently published books.

Her creative and unique focus of talents, Schwartz has built a healthy client base which includes Fortune 500 companies, Small businesses, therapists, politicians, healthcare companies and up and coming authors.  According to Schwartz; "I've comeFull Circle as an entrepreneur, it's one of the reasons I named the company that name."

"Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your blog.  Your work is impressive and I'll definitely check out your other books.  I'm struck, however, by the coincendence today of receiving your attached samples.

Just this morning, I learned that the 24 year old son of a fellow board member had an accident in July that left him quadriplegic.  He had an extraordinary future ahead of him. I can't fathom how the young man and his family are coping.  Reading  your piece on 'missing my body' was so timely...

I feel as though I've made an extraordinary discovery today."
