Handcock was shooting this film, he asked permission to shoot some footage with our producer, Sandy Jacobson, and she
agreed. Being a film veteran, Sandy knew that a lot of what gets shot for a film, ends up on the editing room floor...and
didn't give it another thought. Over lunch, the day of the Los Angeles Premier, Mike Handcock surprised her with
the news that she has a cameo in the film ! Thank You, Mike !

of age, regardless of position, regardless of the business we happen to be in, all of us need to understand the importance
of branding. We are CEOs of our own companies: Me Inc. To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer
for the brand called You." Tom
Peters in Fast Company, 1997
You have seen shows like 'The Biggest
Loser' or 'The Apprentice' or 'The Bachelor'. Have you ever thought what they are really about? ATTRACTION Yes, that's right
we are either attracted or repulsed by people due to one thing only: Their Personal Brand. The same thing happens to each
of us every day. In a business transaction, a job interview, a marketing exercise. We either win or lose based on our ability
to attract. Wealth Profiles give you an indication of who you are, but each of the profiles - even the quietest lord - can
create massive attraction. Ever heard the old adage 'People buy because of you first - the company second and the product
third.' It's true - everything you get is all about your ability to attract.
Check out this one day workshop
on YOUR PERSONAL BRAND and gain information that will take you to the next level. One of the things you will learn is how
people who take action are often rewarded. To prove this you may even get the workshop for FREE if you take action. Check
it out. The information you gain here could significantly improve your ability to attract what you want in life.
8:30AM - 5:30 PMLocation TBA after Registration is comleted.

Snapshots" of My Personal DREAMCATCHER Story...
Photo #1 - I,
(Sandy Jacobson) am pictured above with Peter Tork after his concert at the 2010 NAMM Festival. My biggest dream, since the age of six, was to see him perform "just once" and "hopefully"
meet him "someday" because of how his music and television show gave me the laughter and strength to get through my
recovery from a life-threatening car accident at age six. THAT dream came true, nine years ago, on February 10, 2001. This
year, Peter Tork asked me to work for him at the 2010 NAMM Festival, where he publicly thanked me for that work
in front of industry peers, AND for my work on
Photo #2 -
"I was forced into "early retirement" from acting at age six (or so I thought), due
to permanent injuries from a life-threatening car accident. I walked through my life "knowing" that I would never
act again. Prior to meeting Mike Handcock, I unknowingly began applying some of the principals that he introduces,
and I literally found myself cast in
of the Caribbeann II- Dead Man's Chest"
of 20,000 submissions.
worked in 8 feature films, 4 television episodes, and 3 music videos (one as "the Featured Girl" in an MTV music video)...
BEFORE beginning to produce my own
television show, BackStage:Los Angeles.
Since meeting Mike, I now know
how/why this happened, and know even better how to apply these principals." People keep telling me that I need
to publish my life story...
but I know that 'my story'
doesn't yet have an ending !
(I HAVE written the title.)"
Photo #3 - The Family Affair Cookbook by Kathy "Cissy" Garver with Geoffrey Mark is a tasty
trip to the elegant retro-recipes of the 1960s! Not only does Kathy share the culinary secrets of Mr. French's kitchen as
well as those of the great restaurants of the era, but she shares warm and poignant memories of working on one of the classic
sitcoms of all time. Included are recipes from Kathy's own kitchen and many never-before published photos from her private
collection. Whether you are a Family Affair fan or a lover of good food, this book is for you!
project is also near and dear to my heart, and is another DREAMCATCHER story for me. At age 12, while living in
Goleta, CA, I entered an essay contest to win a day on the set of Family Affair. Shortly after sending it in, my family
moved back to Los Angeles. Next to meeting The Monkees, I wanted to meet Anissa Jones ("Buffy"), more than anything.
I didn't win the contest, but when summer ended, and I returned to a brand new school, Anissa came and sat down behind me
in history class. We shared dance classes together for the remainder of our secondary school years. I found out
in the past few years, that SHE was the presenter for The Monkees only EMMY. Small world, eh?"
I've ordered my copy of the book, and if you order through Kathy's
she will personally autograph it for you.
