Meet Akasha Lin Garnier 

Akasha first started writing Gothic stories to entertain her Halloween guests in St. Paul, Minnesota. She went to college in Minneapolis where the radio station nominated her to be Production Director and “The voice of WMMR”. Akasha enjoyed a wide range of musical influences from The Beatles, The Who, Prince, U2, Pearl Jam, The Replacements and house music. She then honed in on a show featuring dance music hosted with her honors’ writing classmate. Fortunately, the first PR proposal she ever wrote said ‘Yes’! Voila, First Avenue of “Purple Rain” fame sponsored her award-winning radio show. Akasha continued to round out her writing, PR and producer skills in alternative radio, event and video production, then travel from sea to shining sea.

Akasha’s proud of her work as a writer, producer, and actress; she balanced branding work as a writer and producer in Minneapolis, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, London, Paris/Cannes, Maui and Hawaii. She excels at helping clients shine with 15 awards/accolades since 2007.

Akasha also enjoys giving back through her Promo Partners
The main partner right now is The Who’s Charity: Teen Cancer America and her Italian family’s Fantastic Restaurants; Nando Milano
As well as Helping people balance business and creative skills as amplifying their brand value. Akasha will celebrate the book’s release in a few select cities, and then finish negotiating her travel thriller series for release in best-selling book and film form.

Akasha was invited to write a motivational book based on her branding expertise, love of travel and ability to inspire with the right blend of business and creative skills: Secrets to Shine Through the Noise

Praise for Secrets To Shine Through The Noise:

“This is the REAL DEAL. No one will believe what actually happened – but it makes for a great story and journey!” J. Silva, champion pro surfer and paddle boarder; A-list tour guide


“One of the smartest, most creative people I have ever met. Akasha’s got a great sense for storytelling, business, and bringing out the best in people. Incredible!!! (Exclaimed with a Sicilian accent)” Dario Vullo, Owner, award-winning Nando Milano Trattoria in Chicago and Champaign 


“There is no one I have met that is as innovative and has a knack for creating the best product and productions as Akasha does. Her keen sense of organization, dedication, creativity, and professional demeanor all help her clients shine!! I look forward to working with Akasha on more productions!” ~ Anthony Navarro, Best-selling author, Award-winning Planner and Producer, Liven it Up 

What is the primary message that you want to convey to the audience?

We all have our own noise, both internal and external within the industry. The sooner we can hear the noise and quiet it, the sooner we’ll be able to shine through that noise.

My own noise came from working in temp jobs and film for free or low wages; I was what we’d call a starving artist in LA for several years. I was very fortunate that one of my managers at a temp job saw some great promise in me and my abilities and then became my mentor.

I then learned how to understand my creative and business strengths, the industry and the best ways to balance those strengths and present them professionally.

My wage and job offers went up as well as my job satisfaction and ability to do things besides just work to pay bills.

That mentor at American Express took me traveling on business and opened many intriguing doors. I’m grateful for that and go through lessons I’ve learned and can now share in the book Secrets to Shine through the noise.

It’s practical but also inspiring from what my readers and tribe have shared.

So without further ado its time for that
