LIFT Your Story with Dr. Morissa Schwartz Owner and Founder of Dr. Rissy’s Writing and Marketing Company

We were intrigued by Dr. Morissa (Rissy) winning the Guiness Book of World Records for making the longest bracelet.  She had started making them as therapy, and after writing a book at 17 on winning contests, she decided to take on the challenge to win.

Dr. Rissy got her first paypal account at 8 years old to sell and buy some of her Mighty Beans to replace duplicates.  That was her first e-commerce venture.  She continued to sell through her teenage years.  When her friends complained about getting jobs at a mall, her mother introduced her to freelancing as a writer.  She started doing this and it expanded to “an agency” which she prefers to call a “team”  that now has 48 members.

Dr. Rissy also has a publishing company, hence many of her clients are authors.  GenZ Publishing.  She says she wanted to make sure to create a publishing company that was safe.  GenZ also does the marketing for their clients’ books with their model being a 50/50 split on royalties with the author.  They also have a screening process due to two factors:  a) that they receive so many manuscripts and b) they do take on the risk as the 50/50 royalty split includes doing all the work to ensure the success of the book.  Dr. Rissy says their acceptance rate is at about 5%.  She does admit she really does not like to tell the author of the rejection, however she said she prefers that then to ghost them, so they know where they stand.

You can reach Dr. Rissy at https://www.drrissy.com or you can find her on Social Media as Morissa Schwartz or Dr. Rissy.
