Going on Holiday – things to consider before you leave!

The following is a list of things that I take into account before I book my holiday (some of you may think I’m nuts to work on my holiday but in my opinion, there is always someone to replace me with and clients want things yesterday so I make myself available nearly 24/7 – but you need to do what is right for you)

 

  1. Is there internet where you are – even more importantly is there internet near you or do you have to go to the lobby, business center or internet café to…

“The Social Network Train – Do’s and Don’ts”

      One of the fastest and most effective form of advertising is Social Media Networking but it can also become your worst nightmare!  To me it’s logical thinking, but yet I still see thousands of people hurting themselves or their business by how they partake in the social drama.  If you have teen girls, then you know exactly what I mean by Social Drama.  These teens say things to each other in text they would never say to their face and share information that is not necessary to share,…

Finding Your Signature Voice

Perhaps you’ve heard this term and if you’re experienced, you might already have discovered exactly what that is.  For those of you who don’t have a clue what this means or how to accomplish this I will explain it to you the best I can.  As talent many of us truly believe we are capable of any kind of voice project.  This just isn’t the case.  The Voice world is a lot bigger than one realizes and there are many options.  Finding your signature voice isn’t something you…

Current Voice Trends

Staying on top of current trends is extremely important as a talent and if you aren’t working with a coach or mentor, or working frequently in the industry, you might be left in the dust.  I try my best to pay attention to industry trends and I think we are currently in a major voice change once again.  It took some time before the industry switched from the “yesteryear of broadcasting” to the common “acting” trend some time ago.  We still see much of the “acting” read…

Shutting Down the House

There are many things to take into consideration when recording at home that can affect the quality of your sound.  If you are just beginning, your ear may not be fine tuned enough to hear things that can interfere with your recording.  When I record I have to turn off a furnace switch, uplug our “beer” fridge, and shut down the florescent lights in my main office and make sure the lawn people aren't coming on that day.  I also have to warn my family not to run any water (including showers,…

Technology Nightmares

I love what I do.  In fact I think I have one of the best jobs in the world.  There isn’t much negative in my job other than the odd unhappy client (which gratefully hasn’t happened to me much).  There is however one major negative to my job that I don’t enjoy as much as the rest and that is “Technology”!  I have to learn a ton of technical information in my craft both as a talent and a coach, such as computers and how they work (both PC and MAC), hardware and what it does, sound and how it…
