GKN Weekly Update 4/4/11

And a Happy Monday to you all! I hope you had as a pleasant weekend as I did. It was uneventful, which is why it was so darn pleasant…


Last week was quite a successful one on the VO front, but I won’t bore you with what gigs I did & stuff. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I stopped doing that a while ago. I realized the GKN Weekly Update is about coming together, sharing, and helping, not about extolling the breadth and depth of my awesomeness (or lack thereof).

I will share this tidbit, though. Last week I had a recording session with a new client, courtesy of Voice123. Strangely enough, I landed the gig less than 24 hours after renewing my subscription! Anyway, it was supposed to be a phone patch session from my home, but since the client is in New York, they asked if I would come to the city. So my choice was: record from the comfort of my own home or trudge into the city by bus during crappy weather, taking at least an additional three hours which I could spend looking for more work and not getting wet. Guess which one I did?

TIP OF THE WEEK: That’s right! I went into the city. I had a great time and worked with some wonderful people. If given the choice, I will always meet the client in person, especially if it’s a new client. It’s so much easier to connect and make a good impression. And they got some free Tom Dheere pens! Gotta love the swag…

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: If you look at someone long enough, you discover their humanity. As Good As It Gets

STUFF!: In all fairness, they did pay me more for going to the studio, but that wasn’t the determining factor in my choice. It didn’t hurt though!
