I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.
I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
Rich: Thought it would be interesting to collect the top recommended Pro Tools plug-ins used by voiceover home studio users. My list would include: BNR, Normalize, and EQ 3. When you are putting your money where your mouth is, what plug-ins add real value? Share and enjoy! Al
I'll talk to you tomorrow. Today turned out to be a rather long and full day for me. I just want to talk to you and get some feedback about your thoughts on where the industry is going and how best to serve our talent. I've had some "interesting" experiences on this site and just would like to bounce some thoughts around with you.
Let's not make it hard. Let's support each other by being in the flow. Keeping our minds on what's in the NOW and not using past filters to decide what is real today is a start.
Can I reach you privately? I have an issue that I would like to bounce off a "like spirit" , if it's okay with you.

Donna, Thanks for the comment. It's hard to balance spiritual growth and professional growth. We are in a business that loves to spoil the mind with material pursuit and self indulgence. Money and things are a part of everything we do, and more so in entertainment. I feel if I keep my mind on my skills and my person , I will get what's coming to me, no need to obsess over it. The saying, "Money is the root of all evil" is not true. Money can be a blessing. It's the obsessive pursuit of it is the root of all evil. That's what I think anyway.. ;-) Rich
