  • That's fantastic, my friend!

    The group sounds wonderful. I belonged to a group in the 80's called "La Tips" which sounds quite similar to BNI and it was amazing. If nothing else, it helped me focus on what I could do for others much more than my needs and you're right is is an awesome feeling.

    I know you will make it to VOICE if there is any way to do it. Because, friend, I really need to meet you!

    Much love and hugs,

  • Hey Penny,
    I know ....using the 'wishing' word was just a figure of speech. I am not wishing....I am working on it, I can assure you. All my efforts are being put into networking both online and locally in my city. In fact, BNI (Business Network International) is actually working out very well for me. Not many BIG jobs yet, but the networking, face to face every Thursday morning, is actually brilliant. The energy, the positive agenda we work through and the fun we have, is AWESOME! I love getting up extra early every week to be there for 7:30am. We stand up and read our sales manager minute and I just LOVE it because our visitors are not expecting to hear a beautifully lilting, north east British English accent and the room goes DEAD silent every week when I speak. Makes me feel SO special!
    I've made connections with some great businesses and I KNOW it is going to lead to some great local work. In fact I am soon to be the new voice of Gulfgate Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep in Houston. Can't wait!
    I'll keep working on it. The group is such a powerfully positive bunch of people and we have a great rapport with one another. The motto for BNI is Givers Gain!! and it is SO true! You get out of it what you put into it.
    Always help others to achieve their goals and you will be rewarded when least expecting it because others will help you in return.
    Givers Gain! You can't get any more positive than that!
  • Take in EVERY second, it goes by much too fast!
  • It's my son William's 4th birthday today - you can't get more positive than that :-)

    In the past year he has voiced my phone's ringtone, and fauxditioned for ABC News... what excitements will his fifth year bring, I wonder. Check him out here :-)
  • I went to the Sound Studio yesterday and recorded some samples for them. It was a good experience and a lot of fun. This time, since I knew a bit more of what I was supposed to do, I was more relaxed. I think that I gave them some good samples. I was even able to convince them to let me do an African folktale which takes 10 minutes to read. The engineer didn’t stop me, even when I flobbed a few times.
    Wouldn’t you just know it though, as soon as I can devote more time to my acting career, the Saskatchewan film industry has gone into the toilette! Well, I am going to keep on concentrating on voice over here in this province for awhile (at least a year or two). If things look too iffy, I may try elsewhere.
  • Born on a mountain top in Tennessee, greenest state in the land of the free,something something, something something, caught him a b'ar when he was only three. Davy! Davy Crockett! King of the Wild Frontier!
    - (and I had a squirrel hat or something to wearing when loudly singing!) :)
    Fess Parker was great.
  • Larry - yes, I am doing well and feeling wonderful. Thanks! And you?

    Pearl - As you know, wishing is only an excuse for inaction. So don't wish you will get that nice chunky job - go out and GET it and BELIEVE that you will! I know you girl, you're no quitter! We need you and your wonderful energy at VOICE. How else am I going to be able to give you that promised BIG hug an tell you to your face how special you are?

    Darla, sweet girl! You are such a gem and I've really enjoyed speaking with you over the last couple of months. Being at VOICE 2010 will change your life and I can't wait to experience the transformation with you!


  • I just want to let everyone know how helpful Penny has been. Recently, I was able to participate in a couple of Penny's teleconferences and my question got through both times. Getting a chance to actually speak with the voice of "Porky Pig" (et al) and Vanessa Hart was inspiring. It was, also, somewhat intimidating. I am afraid that one of my questions displayed my anxiety about entering this field. Penny and James spoke to me directly in a very encouraging manner. I can't wait to touch base with Penny, James and many other voice over artists when I attend VOICE 2010. By the way, there will be at least one more person from Saskatchewan attending with me and boy are we pumped!
  • Hi Penny,

    Long time - no talky to! I must admit I've been out of the loop a little bit. Things have been a bit busy round here.
    I just read your enticing message about the special price for VOICE 2010. I am SO itching to take you up on it but I think I need to accept that I probably will not make it. My son's singing competition take place during the weekend before VOICE in New York and that trip will be of great expense to us. However, my hotel is still booked in LA and I am going to be wishing hard that a nice big chunky job will come my way between now and June 4th! If it does.....I'll be see you in LA for sure. If it doesn't.......well, let's not think about what will happen if it doesn't.
    This isn't called Positive Thinkers Unite for nothing!!!!
    I will be working hard to find the right job or funds to get me there. I know you will all be rooting for me.

    Thanks Positive Thinkers!
  • Hi Penny,

    Hope you are well.
