Wow, I really took steps toward my goals. I walked around the park in the AM and listened to a podcast with tips on the voiceover business. Followed through with something I’ve been considering for awhile. I Set up a phone appointment with a very well respected audio consultant to work on a space and equipment plan for my recording area. Wrote out all of my near term and long term goals to share with the consultant to better make use of his time. Tip: If you are EVER using a consultant, make sure they have the expert knowledge you need, then be CLEAR with what YOU want to achieve. I have BEEN the technical consultant where people waste a lot of money not knowing what they want. And I don’t mean, which brand of computer etc., but rather, what tasks were they trying to achieve by getting new computers, software etc. Because, just like we touched on with our eating issue priorities a few shows ago, what you WANT shapes your best fit method. Same here with my baby voice acting business. *I* need to know what I want so the audio consultant can suggest the best equipment and sound treatment for my goals. Same with my work with my voice acting coach. When I have a goal more specific than “getting better”, I make more progress. For example, lately, it’s been all about strengthening my diaphragm, increasing my breathe control and developing the supported range available to me in character voice. We still work on acting, but the focus is my breath as that has been a stumbling block.I think I might develop a blog post or show about this. I think we are scared to be specific sometimes, and shoot ourselves in the foot. Hmmmmm
Mark and I are running off for a mini adventure to celebrate our 21 years as Mr. and Mrs. Weaver.
How about you?
Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.
*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.
PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂
