  • Hey gang: Send me your thoughts: I'm writing an article on "What Skills Does a Radio Station On-Air Staffer Need." This was prompted by a student who wrote me on a site that I'm a coach on. I've received some fine comments Semd more to me here.

  • Every time you audition for something, you've performed. You've been heard. Someone now knows of you when possibly, before, they did not know of your existence, let alone your sound, your skills. While you may not get the job, which means nothing because people choose the person whom they believe fits the job best and it may or may not be you, that person who auditioned you may come back to you later or save your audition as a "voice to consider in future." That regularly happens to me. You may not know the person saved your audition, but they do this sometimes. And with audio books, remember that although you sent your audio book demo (make sure it's the correct kind that will get you hired) to a publisher or an author to consider you to narrate for them and nothing happened, publishers have to wait for the "right book" the "right type" to come to them. Then, they consider various demos they keep on-hand. So again, something may happen on down the line. It's the way you get "heard" and "known" and rejection is just routine. Think of it this way. Audition and FORGET IT. It's history. Go on to the next one.

  • My audio book seminar is Sunday April 3 in Dallas. Then, James Alburger and Penny Abshire interview me as a podcast evening of April 4. Thanks for the invite! You can ask questions too. It's free.
  • OK, I simply have to say: WOW.  I am new to VU and just stumbled onto this page and I am frankly flabbergasted by the generosity of the established voice talents and coaches on this board.  There is such a wealth of information on this craft available here and elsewhere on the web, it's truly encouraging.  So thanks to all of you guys and gals who are sharing your experience and wisdom -- it makes the road seem just a little *less scary for a newbie like me.  I hope to have many opportunities to learn from y'all in 2011 and beyond, and perhaps someday I'll be able to return the favor and share my experiences! :)  - Richard
  • The voice over field now consists of "layers." Those who think it's a get rich quick scheme and have very few skills (they talk and that's it and need training and business knowledge) those who are trained but still new (they have the future if they persist in improving and knowing the business and how to get hired) those who do the low-pay jobs or are only on one or two websites trying to get jobs (and know nothing about the high-dollar advertising agency national campaign work who don't have agents or only one in their hometown) and those who know what's happening. They are the ones who rise to the top. It took me 34 years to know what I know and voice overs always have given me and my family a superb living and lovely lifestyle like so many others whose pictures I see here above me and on this site. Which group do you aspire to? It is a new year of new beginnings. Climb climb climb up and make your business grow. If you don't know the ropes, study with people who teach the business, how to make money. Good voice? That's the least element in success!
  • Great idea on filling in the fields Pat!  Thanks for sharing.  :)
