Good morning on this wonderfully mild October morning! Can you believe October is only two weeks away? I am seriously struggling with ideas for a Halloween costume this year. My “My Name is Earl” getup last year was such a big hit I have no idea how to top it. Remember…?
BTW I sent out my quarterly newsletter last week. If you didn’t get it, you can check it out here.
So I landed a new client last week: DUX Crackers (thanks, Craig’s List!). Ever heard of them? It’s popular in the Latino community. I recorded it from home with the director on the phone. The session was quick and easy!
I had a bit of a breakthrough with this recording session. I’ve always shied away from the high-energy commercial spots because I never thought I sounded good doing them. To be honest, I always thought I sounded like a dork. Well, I discovered you kind of need to sound like a bit of a dork doing these spots, but not exactly. Not dorky, not goofy, just excited, but not out of control. Just really, really happy to be sharing this wonderful news about this amazing product. And I did it without feeling self-conscious. The client was really happy with my work so I guess I did it right.
TIP OF THE WEEK: Branching out and taking risks is critical to your development both professionally and personally. You need to put yourself out there, out of your comfort zone. That’s when great things start to happen!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: If all babies are pretty, then why are there so many ugly people in the world? Charles Barkley
STUFF!: Good news, everyone! I don’t have to think of a Halloween costume this year! Instead, I’m going to a toga party. A couple of bedsheets and I’m golden!
