The Voice Over Working Agreement
Last week I answered some frequently asked questions about blogging. Today, I’ll address something I get asked a lot by colleagues who are relatively new to the voice-over industry. They want to know if I have some sort of a working agreement in place with my clients. The answer is Yes. It’s actually a mix […]
Are You Talking To Me?
Dialogue or Monologue? That’s the question I ask when I read other people’s blogs. Is the author talking to me or to him or herself? Dialogue or Monologue? It’s a question I ask myself every time I’m writing a new blog post. Am I really talking to my readers, or am I involved in a […]
Overdoing and Underachieving
Ah, the American Dream. If you work hard enough…. If you always put your best foot forward…. Then there’s a path from rags to riches for everybody. Isn’t that the core of the message? When I moved from Europe to the States, I noticed what pursuing this illusive dream can lead to. An obsession with […]
Bring in the Natives!
Okay, I had promised myself not to do it. At least, not for a while. Yet, I find myself doing it again. And the thing is: I don’t feel so bad about it. Today, I’ll talk about voices.com. Again. Rest assured. I’m not going to rehash my leaving-voices.com-litany. You’ve seen it. At the LinkedIn Voice […]
Wanted: Colleagues with Cojones
Colleagues, where is your courage? Sometimes I feel like I’m dealing with a bunch of wimps. Wimps who cave in without a fight and who compromise their integrity for money. Last week I wrote about a recent European Directive to combat late-paying clients. New, stringent rules have changed the game in favor of small and […]
Europe Cracks Down on Late Payments
This is part 3 in a series on payment. Click here for part 1 and click here for part 2. As in all my articles, blue text indicates a hyperlink. Not getting paid on time. It’s a global problem. If you’re working in Europe or you have European clients, stay with me. What you’re about […]
Recording Voice Overs on your iPhone
Name the number one electronic gadget you can’t live without. To me this is a no-brainer. It’s my iPhone 5. It goes wherever I go. Thanks to audio editor Twisted Wave (one of MacLife’s 29 Web Apps We Can’t Live Without), it’s also my portable recording studio. The iPhone 5 comes with three microphones. One […]
Behind the Facade
“Leave your ego at the door.” That’s one of the first commandments of Faffcon, the voice-over unconference, starting in San Antonio on October 4th. In a world filled with helpful, humble and caring colleagues, why would such a warning even be necessary, you might ask? I’ll tell you why. Because no matter where you go, […]
Give Me My Money!
Last week I clearly disappointed some readers. They thought I was going to give them a few quick tips on how to handle non-paying clients. Instead, I asked them to take a good look at their relationship with money. “I’m not the one to blame,” said one colleague. “Why should I feel guilty when a […]
