Bennet Schwartz Sydney Creative
Bennet Schwartz is a leader in the creative world who specializes in digital media, advertising, and print design. His marketing acumen helps businesses around the world generate their marketing campaigns. He helps businesses create great logos and market new products. His goal with every client is to learn how that company works, speak their language, and reach more customers.
While Bennet has been working in the industry for over a decade, he has other interests outside the world of creativity and marketing.
Bennet Schwartz is a native of Austin, Texas, but he has worked all over the country. His travels take him to the client. Bennet believes that meeting the client is the best way to learn their needs and create the best possible marketing materials. His level of client service is so high that he is sought after throughout the business world.
After building his business in America, Bennet decided it was time for a change. He moved to Sydney, Australia in 2019 to start his Bennet Schwartz Sydney office and see new parts of the world. When traveling to Australia, Bennet decided he wanted to get into bicycling and motorcycles. He has spent time riding around Sydney and seeing the sights. He rides his motorcycle across the countryside, and he is inspired every time he leaves the house. He is also working on a book that will help him share his ideas with the world so that more businesses can market themselves well.
What do you do in your spare time?
In my spare time, I enjoy riding my bicycle around town or riding my motorcycle into the countryside. Australia is a beautiful place, and I want to see as much of it as I can. Living so close to the ocean makes it tempting to sit at the beach every day, and I spend my fair share of time near the weather. I am also working on a book that I believe will share more of my ideas with the world. I also work on artistic ideas for my own enjoyment. I spend so much time creating for others that I like to keep a few things for myself.
What’s your favorite film?
The Shawshank Redemption. I love the way the movie talks about becoming your true self, overcoming adversity, and finding the right people in your life. While the movie is about injustice and the ways that people are forced into bad situations, I also believe that Red and Andy were in the right place at the right time. I admit I get a little misty-eyed even time I watch it because they both end up where they want to be. No matter what happened to them in the past, they can move forward. That is a mantra I carry with me throughout life.
Describe your typical day.
My typical day starts early. I like to start the day as soon as possible so that I have time for some light exercise, coffee, and the news. I like to check the news so I know what is going on in the world. Plus, I like exercising in the morning because it makes me feel energized. After my morning routine, I check and reply to emails. I have projects to work on, and I handle projects throughout the day. If I ever hit a roadblock, I consult with trusted advisors. Never be afraid to ask for help. Bennet Schwartz Sydney wouldn’t be what it is without my most trusted advisors.
What is one thing you’ve learned since starting your career?
I have learned that you must be supremely organized. When you are not organized in business, you will never catch up with the competition. Other companies are organized and ready to start the day before you are. Your clients have expectations, and you need to meet those expectations. Even if I am not done with a project or there is an issue, it is clear to my clients that I know what I am doing. Organization makes me look like a professional and helps me do professional work.
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
My biggest pet peeve is something I’ve heard called “False Hustle” by people wiser than me. False Hustle is what people do when they are always busy and never seem to have time to speak to you. While it is true that we all get busy, you can’t be disconnected from society, aloof, or worse. I take time every day to respond to friends, to speak to clients, and to eat lunch or dinner.
While this pet peeve drives me crazy, I advise anyone out there to remember that it is not healthy to be that busy. You must take some time for yourself, and you cannot build a personality around being busy. When your clients see that you are always “so busy,” they will assume that you do not have time for them. That is not what you want. Take some time, smell the roses, and enjoy life while you can because time flies for everyone.
