It's All Getting More Competitive; So Now What?

Well with all the mergers crushing smaller companies, it's more important than ever to find independent clients rather than relying on big casting sites or voiceover talent agencies. If you have an agent and that works for you, that's great!
We all need to be aware however that market forces are pushing rates down in general and the big mergers add to the pressure. There are many clients who do not use VO talent agencies or online casting web sites. Those are the majority of my corporate clients and it provides a certain amount of insulation from everything that's going on. look for areas where you can form a personal relationship with people who need voiceovers/narrations and take great care of them at a reasonable price.

How the Sennheiser 416 Shotgun kills the Character of Commercial Voiceovers

This article by Cory Burton explains what's wrong with using the Sennheiser 416 for voiceovers and why he calls it The Worlds most Tasteless Microphone. Take heed and get more jobs:) Use Neumann u87, AKG XL II or other comparable mics.

- The Importance of Being Relentless

There are many questions that come in regarding success. How to achieve it, how to maintain it and how to expand upon it. There are always many things that can be said about the process. It's my personal opinion that one of the most important keys is being relentless in pursuit of ones goals. There is just no substitute for sustained effort. Many people try to achieve their goals in a sincere way but simply become weary during the process. People who achieve success tend to love what they're trying to do above all else, so they are more able to keep up a sustained effort in they're careers. If one can maintain the spirit of the adventure instead of viewing experiences in terms of validation or defeat, it's much easier to observe how it's going, make corrections and then try again. Keep laughing and don't give up:)
