GKN Weekly Update 12/8/08

Oh, hello there!

I hope everybody had a great weekend, even you Eagles fans! Man, did the Giants poop their pants yesterday or what? Anyway, on to less distressing topics…


First and foremost, I want to say hello to all of the wonderful people (especially fellow GKN members!) who I saw at the New York Voiceover Mixer this past Friday night. It was great seeing so many people who I’ve known via the Internet for years but never got the chance to meet face-to-face. Click on the link to see the guest list and photos! If you guys have any photos from that night, feel free to post them here and put them in the “Photos” section of the GKN.

Thanks to those of you who watched 30 Rock last Thursday. I got a ton of Facebook messages & emails saying “I saw you! I saw you!” I think I saw myself about nine times. A lot of them were kind of obscure, but who cares! It was awesome! If you missed the episode you can watch the whole thing at: http://www.nbc.com/30_Rock. It was pretty darn funny!

Another sci-fi audio book I narrated was recently released. This one is called “Guest Law” by John C. Wright. I especially enjoyed this one because I got to use about half a dozen accents! You can hear some of it by going here and clicking on the “excerpt” link. Thanks to Allan Kaster on Infinivox for casting me!

I found a bunch of websites to network and find jobs! They are: Bodalgo Zoom Info Xing ODesk

If you have any experience with them please let us know!

TIP OF THE WEEK: Wow, that was a lot of cool stuff in one week! It once again reminds me that the most important part of being successful in our industry is relationships. Specifically, networking to forge and develop relationships. You need to get out there, make phone calls, send postcards, and most importantly, meet people face-to-face. It makes all the difference!

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: The inside of my mind looks like Denzel’s back in glory. Dave Chapelle

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: When was the last time you attended a networking party? Met a peer for coffee just to talk shop? Or just picked up the phone and chatted with a client?

Have a great week!
