Surviving the Gig Economy
In about ten years, contract workers and freelancers are expected to make up half of the U.S. workforce. Let that sink in for a moment. Forget full-time positions. Goodbye job security and legal protection. No more benefits. No pensions or health insurance. No sick leave. Nothing. Working without a safety net is rapidly becoming the […]

The Magnet, the Colander, and the Clay
As a blogger, coach, and voice talent, I think a lot about why certain people make it in this business and why others don’t. Those who are doing well don’t always know why they belong to the happy few. “You’ve got to have a lot of luck,” they say, and “be at the right moment at […]
I’ve been behind the mic since I was seventeen. By the look of my grey hair, you can tell that’s a pretty long time. Thirty-seven years to be exact. “Does it ever get old” someone wanted to know. “This voice-over thing you do.” “Well, ‘it’ doesn’t get old, but I certainly do,” I replied, not […]
Did You Miss Me?
Wise men say that one way to spot the difference between cultures, is by looking at how separate societies approach the concept of work. As someone who has lived and worked in both Europe and in the United States, I feel comfortable making the following generalization: In Europe, most people work to live. In the […]
Whatever Happened to Critical Thinking?
Next week I’ll publish my annual year in review post, giving you an opportunity to catch up on the stories you’ve missed. For now I want to take a minute or two, to share some of my worries and concerns, as I mentally prepare myself for 2018. One of the things I worry about is the general […]
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 […]
The Turning Point
Potentially, this could be my shortest blog post ever. It’s the story of how I got from doing okay, to doing quite alright, professionally speaking. Almost every week I get emails from readers, asking me to reveal the big secret to my so-called success. Why “so-called success”? Well, everything is perception, and perception is everything. We all […]
How Not To Impersonate A Saint
Becoming a professional is very much like growing up. At some point we all have to lose our carefree, childlike naiveté. Old beliefs about the trustworthiness of people disappear. Ideas we’ve cherished for too long, vanish as quickly as melting snow. The tooth fairy is a lie, parents aren’t perfect, and reindeer don’t fly. In The […]
Paying The Piper
“May you live in interesting times.” It’s a well-known Chinese curse, and for me, the past two weeks have been very interesting to say the least. I must indeed be cursed. It all started with my outrageous blog post Divided We Stand. In it, I talked about a few topics the voice-over community doesn’t quite […]
