    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.
