0052: I Love Vision Boards, But Not For The Reason You Might Think

1/24/2022
Hey there, hero! I love vision boards. I hate the power that people sometimes hand them, because I hate for people to be disappointed. Why I love vision boards comes down to one thing: focus. Do you use a vision board? How do you use it, and what do you assign to its meaning? Let me know in the comments below.

0051: Instead Of "I Have To...," Try This Phrase Instead

1/17/2022
Hey there, hero! We're all faced with a lot to do. Auditions, scene study, gear installation and optimization, training...you name it, we have it on our to-do lists. And it can get a bit overwhelming to constantly say: "I have to record some auditions." "I have to memorize my lines for the shoot tomorrow." "I have to get my new sound software set up." What if there was another way to say this that was both empowering and inspiring? And reminds us of how fortunate we are? I've got your...

0050: The One Strategy To Really Make A New Habit Stick

1/10/2022
Hey there, hero! It's only the second week in January as I record and release this episode, and already, over half of the people who have tried to form a new habit this New Year... ...have failed. They had all the best intentions, but they missed one awesome approach that might have helped them, according to Atomic Habits author James Clear. I'll let you know what that one approach is in this podcast, plus some bonus self-talk from his book. And here's the link to his...

0049: How To Simplify Your Writing The Amazon Way

1/3/2022
Hey there, hero! I love finding examples of world-class systems of communication, and I found an article that looks at how Amazon teams communicate with each other when creating written documents: https://bettermarketing.pub/what-writers-can-learn-from-amazons-famous-6-page-memo-de7351e5f771 In it, Sinem Günel shows us a number of ways that Amazon is atypical in their approach to written communication, and what they do to be efficient in meetings. It starts with simplifying their...

0048: A Common Question That Has No Answer...For Performers

12/27/2021
Hey there, hero! There is one particular question I often hear when people ask about being a performer, especially when it comes to training. And it's a question that you can easily ask about almost any other job or pursuit or training... ...but not about performance. The question is a reasonable one, one that we're taught to ask almost from birth. ...but not about performance. In this episode, I'll share both the question and the right (and wrong) answers that students and performers...

0047: Why Your Amazon Orders From This Past Year Will Help You Prioritize

12/20/2021
Hey there, hero! As part of a year end review, I'd like to suggest a minor addition: reviewing what you've bought from Amazon this past year (or whoever you patronize for your stuff). This process might shed some light on your intentions for areas of your work, and what you've been able to execute. It also might give you some visibility into what you thought was important, but never quite got to the top three items on your Ivy Lee cards. Got a stack of packages that have been delivered...

0046: Expand Your Audition Options By Taking Inventory Of Your (Creative) Assets

12/13/2021
Hey there, hero! We are often so hell-bent to move forward and create new opportunities, possibilities, creations, products, paths and more, that we sometimes forget what we've already created for ourselves in the past. And when we let these creations slip our minds, we narrow the chances of being able to apply those finished products we have in our creative inventories to our current needs. It's worth going through our storage systems every so often and reviewing what we've actually done...

We talk a lot about how to be more effective, polished and creative with the sounds we make when we voice copy. But let's not forget the "negative space" (as graphic designers call areas that have no content) of voice work: silence. It's far more useful than one might think. After you watch/listen to...
