You may think you know where I’m going with this post about audio products, exercise and priorities. You might be right, but I bet you’re not. Let’s see who wins!

In a moment of clarity this morning, I noticed my surroundings as I parked to go to the gym. The gym is in a suburban strip mall in a space previously occupied by a grocery store, and at the front of the parking lot is a fast-food place that features a large, yellow, double-humped iconic logo. You know the one I mean! Continue reading Audio Products, Exercise and Priorities

Time. Who has enough of that? Multi-tasking has become second nature for many people, which is great news for writers, speakers, trainers and coaches who offer audio products. Multi-tasking professionals use audio products as a way to learn while accomplishing something else: travel, exercise, chores, etc.

People who offer their intellectual capital in audio products often don’t maximize the profitability of those products, though Continue reading Audio Products – the Case for Big & Little

Total Communications Coach Dr. Joan C. Curtis

Do you work with a business coach? I do, and don’t know what I’d do without her. She keeps me focused and she keeps me accountable. She’s available to brainstorm solutions to the obstacles that get in the way of every growing business. And she keeps me pointed in the direction of success.

If you work with a business coach, chances are you get some of the same advice from yours that I get from mine. One of the things I’ve dropped the ball on is an audio version of my book, “The Original MBA – Succeed in Business Using Mom’s Best Advice.” She’s laughed with me that I stay so busy making audio products for clients that I haven’t made any for me.

Got a Great Voice & Want to do Voicework? Read On…

image of a professional microphone, audio, audio books, audio products, Sandy Weaver Carman, Voicework on DemandIt happens at least once a week – someone touches base with me, saying that everyone tells them they should be doing voicework. They should be a voiceover artist. They have a voice made for movie trailers, radio commercials and emceeing television shows. They either want to know how to break into the business or they want me to hire them.

This is a great compliment, every time it happens, and I take it as a compliment. Voicework professionals make this look so easy that people think anyone can do it. That’s high praise!

In this post, I’ll share with you what I share with them – it takes more than just a “great voice” to be a voice actor/voiceover artist/voicework professional. Continue reading Got a Great Voice & Want to do Voicework? Read On…
