Shine Through the Noise: Spark Creativity in

Branding & Business


"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist, that is all." ~Oscar Wilde


Dear Readers,

This week I share with you inspiration, excitement, synergy and authenticity. We've been talking about my #ShineThroughtheNoise sequel with readers, writers and friends from our tribe. I've incorporated feedback and addressed top comments. We celebrate progress and success and continue to encourage each other. Life is better and beautiful...but never flawless. We all have ebbs and flows, even if we do not share them as publicly as other moments we want to project in our posts.


I feel it's important to talk about disappointment as a natural state as we start on our path. We must let go of more expectations to be open to ideas and feedback to spark creativity and chances...and even to failing along the way. There is no perfect 10, no ideal answer that suits us all.


I explore the idea of: “Shining through" instead of just "shine on” (being real!).


By acknowledging more ups and downs and the fact that we are not always picture perfect we are being authentic.


This will help you:

> Make room for breakthrough. 

> Hear your voice intuition and inner guidance. 

> Know when you're on the right path when you see/feel alignment of people, ideas and opportunities.

I am encouraged by the number of deeper connections I've been able to make with readers, followers, travelers, writers, entrepreneurs and friends. I am expanding ideas into a workshop and seminar as I write this and meeting with sponsors in October to find a good fit. 

I'm excited to share more of stories of journey and success (in the Shine 2 book and workshop) and for you to continue carving out your path!! I'm continuing my community partnership with Teen Cancer USA (TCA) for the Shine sequel and series. TCA has made great progress too. They partnered with Northwestern and Lurie's Children's Hospital in Chicago this summer.

See all Akasha Garnier books.

Keep reading about the inspiration and see the book cover reveal trailer...


I am sure you will spark your own creativity and success as well.

Grazie mille Ricoh, A-List and friends!!
