From the Life After TV section of our world (which is getting larger as the days go by…and is now a preferred destination by many who shall remain nameless but are very talented..) comes news about former promo pro MARC ROBERTZ SCHWARTZ. He left TV after heading up creative and doing promo for stations like NBC in Miami, WMAR and WBAL in Baltimore, and what was called WJKS in Jacksonville…went out on his own and of course used his talents in video and marketing. He founded a TV operation in The Villages, just north of Orlando. Yes, he’s a Florida Gator and who doesn’t miss winters in the sunshine state? Cut to the chase…his Hometown Health TV (Red Apples Media) has been honored by his alma mater as one of the 100 most successful Gator-run/founded businesses. Very cool. A big deal and well deserved. A big Well Dunne! Marc.

Think About This: "Spiritual seekers look for self-realization or enlightenment in the future. To be a seeker implies that you need the future. If this is what you believe, it becomes true for you: you will need time until you realize that you don’t need time to be who you are." ~ Eckhart Tolle
