George Markantonix, the president and managing director of Kernzer International (Bahamas), is nervous about the Genting Group’s big plans for a grand resort and casino in downtown Miami aka Resorts World Miami.

Here’s his quote from The Nassau Guardian:

“Markantonis called the Genting Group ‘high caliber’ and felt The Bahamas would have to greatly ‘up its game’ if the development ever came to fruition.”

I’m honored and excited to be participating with my good friend and mentor, Ralph Kinnard’s annual life planning workshop. Ralph Kinnard is an award-winning filmmaker and master life coach. He’s worked with everybody from artists to business leaders. He’s got amazing insight on how to get the best out of your creative talents. This is a can’t miss opportunity to have a masterful game plan for 2012. I attended last year’s workshop and I wound up having my best year yet. If you’re in the Miami area this weekend, I highly suggest attending. All of the info is below.

I hope to see you there!

Didn’t you ever think :

if I only had known this one year ago, five years ago – I would be at a total different place in my work and life right now ?

Getting good advice and more useful information sometimes seems really hard in this industry and second sometimes we are not ready to understand the advice, because we are just to stubborn and jump ship way to fast.

“I want results now. I want instant gratification, but I don’t want to be responsible for me life and success” is what I hear a lot.

For me everything changed when I started to teach acting 4 nights a week (and that’s been going on with just a few sick days) for the last 13 years. I had to start “living” what I teach – or I would just be a really bad coach and couldn’t life with myself. I had to be successful, just to prove that it can be done.

So every night I had to motivate myself, do the 3 R’s, and focus focus and learn and Research more about Emotions.

I believe that watching my EMOTIONAL STATE every day is and was the KEY to my success. If I, Ralph, don’t feel excited about my life, ashamed because I am not a millionaire, ashamed because of ANY comparison my wicked mind comes up with – I will not be creative, I will not CREATE more work and I will not make more money.

This year I am trying to make the LIFE PLANNING WORKSHOP clearer and better then ever before and I hope that these three hours ( or a little more) will have the same profound impact on your life, your work, your financial situation and your relationships.

Here for the last time all the final information so you can pass it on to your friends who need a boost this year :

Life planning 2012 ( what this year could be for you)


- Rules of the creative life
- Having your own Idea Hatchery
- The 3 R’s for daily success
- Why you should get paid for your talent
- How your brain and your emotions function and how to make them work for you
- Overcome anxiety and the fear of success
- Why ‘better’ emotions translate into ‘more money’ in ANY AREA of work

DATE : SATURDAY 21st 6pm – 9.30pm
COST: US$75.–

In this 3 hour workshop learn the theory and tools successful directors, writers and artist in general use to propel their careers forward and get highly paid in their field of expertise.

Ralph Kinnard is an award-winning actor’s director, with extensive work experience in three different countries and their cultures: Germany, the USA, and Venezuela. He has had an outstanding career as an acting coach and over the last 13 years has worked with talent from South America and the USA. Additionally, as a filmmaker, he is the winner of several prestigious awards coaching over 1000 actors, artists and businesses.

His latest feature, “A MI ME GUSTA,” participated in 12 international festivals and received several award nominations, winning three as “Best Director” (L.A. Arpa Film Festival, NYC SF Festival, and Mexico International Film Festival). Mr. Kinnard brings a unique global view to his projects.

Born in Germany, where he began his studies, he moved to New York to study at the Lee Strasberg Institute, presenting theater productions. Continuing his education at NYU Film, he started in the field as an Assistant Director and PA in feature productions, among them Woody Allen’s “Celebrities”. A job opportunity through international Latin soap icon Mimi Lazo changed his course to Venezuela, where he worked for several major Latin networks, such as E! Entertainment, Venevision, and RCTV, among others. In 2005 he worked as Creative Director on the Launch of a new network in Venezuela called CANAL I.

Not only did this experience introduce him to the Spanish language, but it also started his process of “transculturation”. This gives him a unique view and skill to communicate to global audiences an insider’s look at these different cultures.

In 2009, he moved to Miami, the gateway to the Americas and Europe, and used his skill to create the Miami Acting Studio, the first spin-off of the Actor’s Studio in Miami. This workspace has quickly become Miami’s premier professional resource center. Over the last 2 years, it has produced over 320 videos of scene studies, giving local actors a tool to showcase their talent in a professional setting nationwide.

Highlights of his career include working for Woody Allen (“Celebrities”), the BBC of London and directing “The Chorus Girl“ and “The Donahue Sisters“ in the Marilyn Monroe Theater in New York. He himself was part of the production of the Actor’s Studio “In search of Strindberg” in 1995.

In 2002 he published his first book “Steps to Acting”, and in 2011 his second book “Actor’s Blueprint”. His Podcast Series is available on Itunes.

His unique approach to teaching emotional intelligence and intuitive intelligence have made him a sought after keynote speaker for international companies such as Bayer, Deutsche Bank, Banco Central Universal, Kraft, Mastercard and others…
