How Can I Help You?
Last week, I was privileged to see the Pompeii artifacts on display at the National Gallery of Art. Just a short ride on the metro (subway) to the Smithsonian stop, a quick, chilly walk across the National Mall, and there I was, awestruck, as I stepped back in time to the first century. The wealth of those early Romans was staggering, yet in an instant, all the wealth in the world could not alter the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.
I found myself making a parallel to our modern economy. Yes, the stock market, people are losing their jobs, and the morale of the country has taken a huge downturn, but what can we do right now to help each other?
My thinking is this. If you are a business owner, marketing a product or service, do you act like a turtle, draw into your shell, and hope for the best? If you're embarking on a career path like voice overs and find yourself without income, are you just going to wait and see what happens? The American Dream was built on innovation and the belief that you can succeed!
If you want to advertise your business, what better way to cut costs than by hiring a voice over artist like myself? I have my on-site studio, and can send my dry voice over audio recording all over the world on an mp3 file through the internet. Whether you're interested in a radio or television commercial, web site audio, corporate narration, or e-learning audio, know that I'd be happy to work with you at a reasonable price with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Most short projects, I can finish and send the edited electronic file to you within 24 hours.
For others just entering the voice over career, there are wonderful web sites that connect you to the experienced wisdom of established professionals in the business. Learning from their articles and podcasts build a depth a knowledge you'll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.
I wish you well, and hope you are re-energized by creating your own destiny! You've probably heard of "Beware the Dog," but did you know the people of Pompeii actually used that phrase (in Latin, of course) as a joke? Here's why...mosaic doormats were embedded on the floor at the entrance to their homes, because the doors were left open to catch the ocean breezes. May your doors always be open with opportunities and may the winds of financial change swing in your favor!
