    Andrew Werschky - The Gardener Group

    United States - Last active: 07/12/2014

    I am a freelance professional writer and entrepreneur born and bred in the United States of America. My business (The Gardener Group) provides high quality copy, content, and editing services to the general public. We also provide business consulting/coaching, market development, and brand management solutions to a variety of small and large businesses. Our consistent focus and our bottom line is on People, Planet, and Profit (in that order). Understanding that what we do impacts our environment and finding "simple sustainable solutions" to the problems we all face is what drives us. Our motto: Love Is Always The Answer. My professional history and experience is mostly in the areas of sales and marketing, but I've also performed many other fascinating functions throughout my career. I spent 10 years in professional real estate (including sales, investment, and brokerage) and have extensive experience in the hospitality industry as well. I spent a couple years pursuing micro-farming and organic food distribution as a career and have worked with a host of world class companies. These include Food and Thought, RE/MAX International, The Walt Disney Corporation, Bloomin' Brands, ArtVan Furniture, New Horizons Computer Learning Centers, and more. Personally, I have an affinity for travel and am a bit of a foodie. I have lived and worked in 8 states to date. My favorite, thus far, was Hawaii where I spent time as a professional fisherman and a surf instructor on the islands of Oahu and Kauai respectively. I hope to sail the world one day (which is one of the reasons I do what I do). I love good food, books, films and adventure. My writing is constantly being perfected and is a source of great joy for me. I recently decided to sharpen my pencil a bit more and re-enrolled at Grand Valley State University after nearly 2 decades in the business sector. There, I am on track to complete a bachelor's degree in Creative/Professional writing by April of 2014. The abundant resources available to me there are a real asset. I have been blessed to be professionally coached by some great men throughout the years: Brian Buffini, Paul Starner, Floyd Wickman, and Brian Kelly to name a few, but my greatest coaches have been my parents and my King: Jesus. I am a family man (father of 5) who likes to help people achieve their goals and I hope to leave this world better for having been in it. I'd like to help you if I can and will always do my best to serve you and treat you fairly. I am committed to excellence and driven to provide you with the best service available on the market today.

    Rachel Renee Smith has a B.S. degree in Communication from Seton Hall University and an M.B.A. from the University of Phoenix. After several years of assisting authors and mentoring students in their writing and editing process, she released two books, devotionals entitled The Rain Won’t Hide These Tears, in May 2012 and While the Sun Still Shines in 2013. In line with her continued desire to assist aspiring authors, Rachel launched Rain Publishing in 2013 and launched several books by new authors. She has recently published her third book, a tool to assist writers in their writing process entitled, What’s Your Story, and a fourth book, an anthology in partnership with playwright Kimberly A. Cullen titled Bag Ladies: Unpacked. Rachel's background has equipped her to serve both corporate and ministerial clients seamlessly, especially as she collaborates with each client to identify and deliver what they specifically need. Here are some recent testimonials that Rachel has received from her clients: Testimonial from a corporate client: “Rain Publishing is a reputable publishing company that produces a quality product that both you and your readers can be proud of. Their knowledge base, professionalism, timely process, and attention to every detail are the reasons I choose Rain Publishing every time.” - Hasani Pettiford, Founder of Couples Academy Testimonial from a client who used Rachel's writing coach services: “Rain Publishing has blessed my life! Working with Rachel has truly been a God-sent connection! Her work is done in love and she pushes you to your highest potential! She believes in your dream just as much as you do. It's not just a job to her, nor is it just every day work, it's her life, it's what she loves to do! Your success is her success and she gives more than 100% in seeing you make your dreams come true! Rachel challenged me, which pushed me to another level that I didn't even know I could reach! Her motivation inspires me and no matter how long it takes for me to birth this "Diamond" I'm not giving up. The amazing thing about Rachel, is that she's not giving up either!” - Amara Russell From a client who has hired Rachel to edit all three of her books: "Rachel is a genius when it comes to editing. I have experienced her work with two of my books. Her diligence is what makes her stand out above the rest. She makes sure that she does what she says when it comes to time and additional reviews. I would definitely recommend Rachel without question because it is hard to find an editor who is as thorough as her. When your final review comes back there are never any mishaps. She is the epitome of business and efficiency." -Candra Ward, Speaker and Educator
