About Abandoned Property
These characters all have something in common; they’ve been abandoned.
Even though their issues of abandonment stem from some of the same situations, how they play out is different in nature.
Will they go to the extreme opposite to ensure that the cycle ends with them? Or will they realize the blessings in being abandoned by people who never knew how to care for them in the first place?

Note from Essence of Motown Literary Conference Chairperson, Sylvia Hubbard:
You ever get to a point in life where you think you’ve reached the ceiling and can’t go any farther. You think that you’ve accomplished enough and those other things you want to accomplish you aren’t as passionate about anymore because you feel you’ve used up enough energy trying to get to your other goals.
I think when I first met “Charlie Curve” I was at that point in my life. I was a good author, I had a great fan base and MWN was just going. Everything was chugging along a little at a time and I was becoming … complacent.
I got invited to an event by a friend about four years ago and I wasn’t really interested in going, but for some reason I was like Jonah and the whale. No matter how far I ran, that whale kept coming to drag me back where I needed to be.
At this event was this guy and he turned on a light switch inside of me.
The first time I heard Charlie Wollborg aka @CharlieCurve, I couldn’t help but smile and know that things can get better. Not just for myself, but my world around me. I’ve never wanted to really make an effort to introduce myself to someone. I’m a writer and I’m shy, but for some reason I just told myself Charlie had to know my name.
Since meeting him, he’s truly made an impact in my life and has helped me target myself, re-energize my work and organization and made me grow in the direction I need to go.
He’s one of those people placed on Earth that you just have to meet!
Meet Charlie Wollborg
He opened the doors at Curve Detroit Marketing Strategy & Creative Design after being thrown out of several well respected ad agencies. As a marketing strategist and creative director, he has delivered blue sky ideas and bottom line results for blue chip national clients and budding local brands.
When he’s not building brands, you’ll find Charlie inspiring, educating and entertaining business audiences with his lively keynote presentations on social media, branding, marketing and motivation. He helps smart companies stay on top of what’s new, what’s now and what’s next in the world of marketing and technology. He’s earned applause and laughter at several Ignite events and recently took the second place prize at the PowerPoint Karaoke World Finals.
Along with a few cool friends, Charlie helped bring the acclaimed TED conference to Michigan in the form of TEDxDetroit. He also carves out a little time for Motor City Connect, a Detroit-based social network and professional development organization he helped create.
Connect with Charlie :
On November 10th, “Charlie Curve” will be joining the Essence of Motown Literary Jam and Conference as the lunch keynote speaker at 12:30pm at the Northwest Activity Center.
