WHY I WELCOME UNSUBSCRIBES I've been blogging for several years. Despite naysayers saying that blogging for voice-over is superfluous, plus, all the competition, I keep on keepin' on. But, I welcome unsubscribes. Why? I am blogging for, what I feel, are all the right reasons: -to have content and share, reaching my clients regularly in order to stay top-of-mind, -to express my brand and image through my words and stories, -for SEO content (debatable, but I believe it's a worthy effort), and -to use as a creative outlet - it makes me happy. So why in the world do I welcome people from unsubscribing from my[...]

Whether as a professional profile pic for business or, in my case, a headshot for my voice-over business, getting a good quality photo of yourself makes good business sense. Headshots can be a huge investment, so you need to plan ahead to ensure success and, therefore, make use of your photos for as long as possible. I can't tell you how many pics I didn't end up liking. That's why I put a lot of effort into preparing for any photo shoot. I want to make sure I look and feel my best and have all the elements in place for that very short[...]

"PROFILE PICS" OR "HEADSHOTS"? There was a time, not so long ago, when a voice actor headshot was ironic, outrageous to some. Why would you include your picture, when it's the audio that people need to hear? Why taint the listener's opinion of your sound with your photo? How will they imagine your voice age, if they can see your face?! Here's the thing... while I agree that a listener does not need to see your face when selecting a voice for their next project, we are in an era of needing to present ourselves in the best light possible, using all the tools[...]

  Though I've completed Yoga Teacher Training, and practice Yoga as often as possible, you would rarely see me in pretzel-like poses. My practice is a gentle one. It is not uncommon to find me in a room of women (with an occasional male), over the age of 65. I believe that a slow consistent stretching and strength practice is RIGHT for me. And so, I progress, slowly and surely… All this to say that while almost a third of the year is over, and I continue to upgrade EVERYTHING in my business, I must have patience and know that it will[...]

If you are recording your outgoing message for your company, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Are you comfortable with your voice? How is your tone of voice? Would your voice fall into a certain category of voicemail "styles"? Your voicemail messages represent your company. The outgoing message is often the first point of contact for your clients and customers – an opportunity to create a professional branding image! If you, or an employee, are recording the company message, here are some basic voice presentation reminders for your outgoing message: Be happy - Put a smile on your face. It[...]

I always thought one of the very best questions to get to know anyone was “what’s your story?” Even for someone you know, asking them on any given day “what’s your story?” will fill you in on what’s going on for them, what’s real for them in the moment. As a “singing server“ back in the ‘90’s, I was often amused by how much more my customers respected me when I opened my mouth to sing. Even more interesting to me was their reaction when they found out more of my backstory – who I was and how I came to[...]
