If you haven’t, please consider the story below as an introduction to some of the ideas you will find inside. The […]
The Most Embarrassing Moment of my Voice-Over Career
This week I decided to do something different. Instead of telling you a story, or giving you some kind of Top Ten, I will answer three seemingly simple questions I get asked a lot. I’ll start off with some career advice, then I’ll talk about gear, and I will finish with my most embarrassing moment […]
The Ministry of Silly Voice-Overs
Last week it happened again. In my dreams. I got a phone call from a potential student who wanted to know how long it would take to break into the voice-over business. He had no training, no equipment, no experience, and no patience. When I asked him how much he was willing to invest, it […]
How Vocal Coach Elissa Weinzimmer Lost Her Voice and Found Herself
Okay. I’m going to do the decent thing, and not start with how a simple sex toy could benefit your (voice) acting career. That would be a cheesy way to pique your interest, and I’m not going there. Besides, it’s just a small part of a much bigger story, and it has been covered before. Don’t worry. I’ll get […]
Are Clients Walking All Over You?
As a freelancer, I’ve had to learn many lessons. Some of these lessons came easy. Others were excruciating. Out of all the things I picked up along the way, these two were perhaps the hardest: 1. How to deal with conflict. 2. How to stand up for myself. I grew up in a very protective […]

The Secret To Free Upgrades
It’s my ultimate dream… To board a transatlantic flight, and get a complementary upgrade to first class. Or to pay for a simple hotel room, and being handed the key to the penthouse suite. At no additional charge. I love a good deal. Especially when I’m not paying for it! And how about getting last-minute tickets to […]
Causing A Ruckus. Again.
Oh dear, I think I stepped on some very sensitive toes, last week. And I’m not at all sorry. If you weren’t part of the now 8,500 strong group that has read last week’s story, click here to catch up on what you missed. It will take you to: 5 Reasons Why You Should Never Become […]
5 Reasons Why You Should Never Become A Voice-Over
“Millions of dollars paid out to voice actors globally.” “Audition for your dream job now.” “Instant access to amazing opportunities.” “New job postings every day.” It sure sounds tempting, doesn’t it? Especially when you’re young, idealistic, and impressionable. It’s the way online casting sites throw out their net, hoping that loquacious people will bite. Well, […]
The Easiest Way To Shoot Yourself In The Foot
Being judged. For some people, it is the worst feeling in the world. Not only that, it can be totally paralyzing. We all have friends or family members who are really good at something they do. Perhaps they play an instrument, or they write funny little poems. But as soon as you ask them to […]
