Ganious’ entrepreneurial spirit began back in New York City where he went from working on feature films with Spike Lee, Robert Deniro,Ron Howard and others to creating Four Reel Entertainment, Inc.,which provided operations and venue services to special event companies whose clients included SONY, BMG, Major League Baseball, The National Football League, The National Basketball Association, The Disney Company, and many others. After the tragic events of losing his parents months apart and the September 11th, 2001 attacks, he transitioned to the west coast and became one of the top Health and Wellness Consultants in Los Angeles, coaching educators, pastors, attorneys, first responders, personal trainers, martial artist, performers, housewives, kids and folks from all walks of life. His PT45 class (Personal Trainer for Five Dollars) was featured in the Los Angeles Times (March, 2003) as, “An honorable and great service to the community.” Ganious has mentored and passed along his wellness expertise to many Private Trainers who accept his “Inside out” training methods as a key component in their training. Presently Ganious is an Executive of STEPSSS, where he can provide his extensive knowledge in not only the entrepreneurial spirit, but in stressing the importance of education to build the foundation of any aim towards success. Also, he's modernized redux of the production company, Ganious Prod. Co. (March, 2019) with projects in development and slated to go into production the first and second half of 2019, including the intensely dramatic and rhapsodic projects, "I Am Divine", a biopic of the revered pastor written by Djo Yugen, “Nancy Parker Drinks And Smokes?” “I Thought It Was Me” and “Why Kill Ina?” He also writes and produces songs (on iTunes and other streaming sites) and his songs, “This Ain’t Love” and “Brown Ivy” spread internationally, garnering splendid reviews. His next album, “Spiritual Gangsta” is slated for release in Spring, 2019. Ganious has penned the memoir, “The Third Rail” on BarnesandNoble.com, enjoys working out, being vegetarian, enriching conversation, and most importantly, serving as a Sherpa to those who know there is more to who they are and need a trusted ally/guide to get them there.
