    Seller’s Remorse?







    Ever quote a price on a VO Gig only to regret it later? Did that mindset cause you to think something like: “Heck, I’m only getting $XXX for it and have spent too much time on it already?”







    Ring a bell?







    In Episode 72 I discuss why solid fees are important for our attitudes and our mindset s we approach and work on the projects we get hired for.

    Episode_71: Why “Pay to Play” is not a Viable “Place” for Your #VO Business

    Episode_71: Why “Pay to Play” is not a Viable “Place” for Your #VO Business

    What Coffee Cake & QVC can teach us about Voice Over







    Don’t be a commodity. How do you differentiate yourself from everyone else if you offer your services in the same “Place” where everyone else offers those same services?







    In Episode 71 I use a fun example of Coffee cake and QVC to discuss the importance of “Place” and how selecting where you do business has dramatic effects on price and your clients’ resistance to price. Be “Where no one else is.”

    Episode 70: Be Careful Who You Take Advice From

    Episode 70: Be Careful Who You Take Advice From

    Sometimes “Free” advice comes with a cost. Sometimes that cost is simply time to receive the advice and implement it. If it’s good advice then all is well.







    Other times it can cost you BIG when you implement BAD advice.







    In this Episode I use a recent coaching call with a listener as my outline for this episode where I take on the Voice Over Demo Mills and the Voice Over Commodity Marketplaces.

    The DeFlame Diet.







    So I have a great book I want to recommend to you. It’s called “The Deflame Diet: DeFlame your diet, body, and mind” by Dr. David Seaman.







    http://voiceovermarketingpodcast.com/z886







    This book is great. I’ve been eating this way for awhile now. If you’re a Voice Talent who has to clear their throat a lot throughout the day, maybe have some post-nasal drip, or are feeling sluggish and run down – you want to check this book out.

    Episode 69: Getting Out of a Rut, An Interview With Rob Berkley

    Episode 69: Getting Out of a Rut, An Interview With Rob Berkley

    I interviewed my friend and business coach Rob Berkley shortly before he was diagnosed with cancer about how to get out of a funk, rut, groove, inertia, etc. Something that I have been in for various reasons







    Rob Berkley







    Unfortunately, Rob passed away in December of 2018. I wanted our interview to be the next episode of the podcast. It has taken a while to get here.







    Rob’s last words to me on our final coaching call were: “John, you’re a ‘Finisher.’ Finish what you start.”







    Well, I’ve started a lot of things, this podcast being one of them. I guess I’m not finished with it yet. There are a lot of “Writer Downers” in this episode. Take notes and enjoy.







    Rob, thank you for all you shared with me and for listening. Rest in Peace.

    What’s the Second Piece of Advice I Give to #VO Talent?

    After showing up and positioning yourself for opportunity, the second piece of advice I give to #Voice Over Talent (Veteran and just starting out) is … read. Read everything you can get your hands on. Literally.



    * Ingredients

    * Even stuff you know nothing about (Especially stuff you know nothing about.)

    * Shampoo Bottles

    * Boxes

    * Food packages

    * Contracts

    * Labels

    * Home Cleaning Products

    * Magazines

    * Books

    * Web Content



    Reading materials from all sources exposes you to new content. You never know what topic you may be asked to do a voice session for. The more you learn about, the more you can bring to the table as a voice talent.

    Plus you’ll learn something new… which is cool

    I Also Share My reading List

    Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr. Joe DisPenza

    Blowing the Bloody Doors Off by Michael Caine

    The Operator: Firing the Shots that Killed Osama bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior by Robert O’Neill

    R.I.F. Readng is Fundamental PSA

    If you grew up in the 70s and 80s you probably remember the R.I.F. (Reading Is Fundamental) PSA’s. I guess they’re still producing them with the likes of Lady Gaga, etc. Whatever works….

    Here’s a link to a PSA from 1980 with Ed Asner. I picked this one because I had the pleasure of taking a VO workshop with Ed and Pat Fraley several years ago.
