  • Hi Penny, I'm so excited to see your warm welcome to VU, Right, you're the first one on my comment wall, and am so proud of that. Read your story. I've known you for quite some time as my VO Coach, but didn't really know so much about you until I read your story. I was so much inspired; as I have exact same format of your career 10 years ago you were 48... Well, that's my age today... at 48 and being NEW to VO world, I was thinking the same thing, that I may be too old for this... Like you, I climbed up corporate ladder for 30 years; worked as Secretary, Paralegal, HR-Job Developer with CA State Agency and loved it because it was SAFE and I'm the only bread winner for my family... But then the Creative side of me and being a performing artist/singer tells me that there must be something I could do to fully utilize my Voice. I left my JOB 14 months ago and since then...I have taken almost all VO workshops, classes I could find...and I'm so glad I found you and Jim.. I had so much fun working wirh you and gaining the best knowledge I could have as Voice Talent. Other voice components I'm currently doing: Public Speaking, Accent Modification (I have great niche market in these areas) in addition to my Vocal Coaching in Singing and Performing.... I recently met Bob Proctor (The Secret) and requested the song "Over the Rainbow" to include on my CD. I continue to attend personal development advance courses; that will fire up my Voice business in no time. I also recently trademarked "Voiceologist" and "Voice of Opportunities" ... You and Jim are a positive influence to me... and made me approach Voice Over, that it wasn't such a hard thing to do... Just be positive and work on my Character... Love you dearly... Benita
  • Hi Penny, your preface to the weekend was quite inciteful. To compliment your Erma Bombeck quote, I'd like to add one of my own that came from one of those annoying mass emails forwarded on to me by my mother. Typically, I pay little attention to these, but this one in particular had something that I've latched onto as my life's credo.
    "When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.
    Live your life so at the end, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying."
    It's part of what keeps me thinking positive in the face of adversity. It may seem sarcastic, but in all honesty, "I'm" what keeps me thinking positive. Nothing else can replace our efforts to remain positive, even when it seems there's little to be positive about. I once read that when we smile, our brain releases endophines into the body. So in effect, we can fool ourselves into believing we're happy by simply smiling.
  • Welcome to Justin and Chris!

    Hey, guess what! We just reached 200 members!! WHOO HOO! 200 positive thinkers! Just imagine what we can do together!

    Please remember to use this group to tell us YOUR story. We all have one and hearing the experiences, successes and challenges of others can really help us in our lives.

    I know the hearts of our members even though I haven't met all of you personally. You wouldn't be here if you weren't my "peeps." You've already helped several of our members when they were going through hard times with your incredibly powerful positive thinking! I thank you so much for being here.

    Big hugs to my favorite 200 (soon to be more) voices!
