How To Handle Negative Comments
Don’t be shocked. Sooner or later it is bound to happen, and you will ask yourself: “Was it something I said, something I wrote, or something I did?” It doesn’t really matter. The truth is: you probably annoyed someone in some way, and they’re letting you have it. Online. For the whole world to see. […]
4 Ways To Get From Good To Great
Being a successful voice-over. It has a little bit to do with having pleasant pipes, and lot with other factors. Some of those factors can be influenced. Others are beyond our control. A few days ago, one of my students had an interesting question for me. Professionally speaking (pun intended, always), she was doing okay. Clients […]
Are Those Black Friday Deals Really Worth It?
At this very moment, the retail powers that be, are working you left and right. They’re preying on you, like a lion lures a lamb. Unlike the lion (who will do his best to stay undetected until he makes his deadly move), retailers come at you in plain sight. They have no desire to rip you […]

A painful, and often embarrassing war of words is finally over. America has voted. The people have spoken. We have a president-elect, and his name is Donald J. Trump. Some of us are elated. Some of us are scared. Some of us are asking ourselves: “How the heck did this happen?” Now, before you think […]
Secrets From Successful Voice-Overs
Last week, I shared the story of Rick, a voice actor and producer with over 30 years of experience. In spite of his talent and time in the business, Rick isn’t doing so well. What’s even worse: he has pretty much given up hope that things will change for the better. His story struck a chord. […]
Voice-Overs: the Untold, Unsexy Story
Something strange is going on. Whenever I try to warn people about the intricacies and pitfalls of the voice-over business, I get two types of reactions. More experienced colleagues thank me for painting a realistic picture of a complicated industry. Beginners criticize me for spitefully dashing their dreams. To some, I am a hero for speaking my mind.

Lessons From Bridezilla and Buffet
At the bank I once worked for as a trainer, they had a saying: “If it’s about money, it’s never funny.” Ain’t that the truth! To that I added my own adage: “Show me your bank account, and I’ll tell you how you lead your life.” Bankers and accountants probably know more about you than your […]
My Most Personal Post
As a blogger, I often write about various aspects that play an important role in the way we lead our life, and the way we run our business. Think of things like our health, our state of mind, and the stuff we use to make a living. Today’s topic is something I approach with trepidation. For […]
Why Navel-Gazing Is Bad For Business
I love being part of my sweet, supportive, and unpretentious voice-over community. It’s one of the many perks of the job. When one of us lands the gig of a lifetime, all of us rejoice. When one of us is down in the dumps, many of us reach out. When one of us spots a scammer, […]
What Were They Thinking?
No matter how much you love your job as a voice-over, there are always aspects of your work you don’t care for, or would rather have someone else do. I, for instance, am not a numbers man, and I’m glad my office manager is keeping the books for my business. Very few colleagues I talk to, […]
