Dan McCarthy :: Planting the Seeds for Re-Opening Michigan - JMVO Weekly Primer Ep 59
Quarantine.....there are varying magnitudes of lock down. Each state has different interpretations of what their citizens are *not* to do.
My brother, Daniel McCarthy makes his Primer debut to talk about what is going on in his state of Michigan. He is leading an initiative at his law firm to address Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer with assistance from his clients on a proposal to re-open the State following April 30, 2020. A group of his clients voluntarily joined together and retained a reliable Expert who prepared an accurate modeling report. They’re asking the Governor to consider this report, as opposed to the U of M modeling, which is based on non-public data and methodologies.
If you would like more information about how to do this in your state, contact Dan at email@example.com.

A few days and 100+ comments later, people are still commenting. In any dark time, it always helps to be grateful for what you have, identify the good things that are still and always have been there and keep pushing forward.
Sometimes it helps to hear the good in other people's lives so you can identify it in yours...so I read each one of the comments in this episode.
Get up. Persist.

Networking and How I've Been a Failure - JMVO Weekly Primer Ep 55
Yep...I thought myself as a failure for many years...this is about as real as I've been in a long time.

Thanks to various elements of conditioning I've had early in life, I've felt the stigma of a hopeless future embrace me.
I honestly don't think of myself as a successful voice over dude. I know what I am capable of pulling off...I also know there are many other talents much better than me. Their talent is to be emulated and admired. They have a true gift from God.
I can imagine that this might be the case for quite a number of you, especially now when everyone's "best life" is being pushed out there these days.
But take heart...
Failing is a good thing.

There is a ton of rate shaming that goes on in VO land these days especially when it comes to prospect who lowball. I have dubbed them "Hamburger Clients". If treated properly, they may become some of your biggest fans.
A few takeaways:
- NEVER balk at an opportunity
- This new economy in the creative space will be powered by relationships
- Sharpen your selling process - Learn how to pivot during the dance
- They get a chance to see what it's like to work with you, so smile and put on a show
- No one wants to stay where they are and typically would like to move up. if they're your fan, they'll probably take you along
- More Hamburger Clients = more referrals
- It's economically smart
