Meet Garden Marcus
CEO, Author, Creator
I am Marcus Bridgewater: CEO, creator, and influencer. In 2018, I launched Choice Forward LLC, my wellness company. We offer workshops, presentations, life coaching, and more to empower individuals and strengthen communities.
In December of 2019, I began sharing videos online at the suggestion of a former mentee of mine. He felt that my message of kindness, patience, and positivity would be well received by the internet, and thus I began my journey as a content creator.
Since then, I have been fortunate to have my work featured in a variety of press including Vogue, The Los Angeles Times, and the New York Times.
In 2021, I had the honor of writing my first book - HOW TO GROW: NURTURE YOUR GARDEN, NURTURE YOURSELF - and as of May 24, 2022, it is available everywhere books are sold.
I am humbled by the response I have received to my message, and I look forward to continuing this adventure.
Garden Marcus is a joint effort between myself and Choice Forward's Co-Founder, Dana Hammarstrom, who films & edits all my videos. She makes content creation that much easier, and that much more fun. I'm grateful to have a strong team working with me!
My first book came out May 24, 2022, and I could not be happier to share it with you. I cover mental health, physical fitness, and spiritual awareness, drawing from what I've learned in my garden and my life.
I wrote this to empower people grow to their fullest potential. Let's grow together and foster a better future for us all.
We offer a variety of services to help you and your team prosper. Our workshops, presentations, and seminars are designed to empower people, build communities, and foster healthy environments. Our keynote speeches are set to motivate and inspire audiences big and small. Our guided meditations will help you and your team relax, reflect, and recharge.
If your organization is in need of positivity & motivation, Choice Forward is available virtually and in-person! If you are interested in more information, please email Dana at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +1 (346) 305-9685.
