Can You Do Something Unique With Your Voice? Get Paid For Voice Over Gigs!

Voices over artists aren’t simply those actors who have great-sounding voices; many of them also have unique abilities. What does this mean for you? Namely, if you can pull off some amazing talent (such as being able to convincingly cluck like a chicken or bark like a dog) you could get paid for voice over gigs!It’s no joke. There are thousands of voices over artists all over the world who make their livings vocalizing for cash. And they aren’t necessarily saying words, either. Some voice over artists gets paid to sing; others get paid to sound like chimps; many get paid to make odd sounds that can’t be easily defined!The secret is to recognize and hone your particular ability, not to mention get yourself noticed. But first things first – you have to name your voice over talent. Maybe you can warble like birds… if that’s the case, and then you could position yourself as a voice over artist who can recreate the sounds of nature. (That sounds like a better description than “guy who whistles like a canary”. ) Or perhaps you can imitate those crazy sounds that are made by a computer. If that’s the case, you could easily portray yourself as a voice over artist with a techno-touch. (Again, this is a much better sales pitch for your voice over prowess than saying you “beep” like the backspace on a laptop!)It’s all a matter of being creative and acknowledging that you have a talent – albeit an usual one – that could be useful to clients who hire voice over artists. Next, you have to get better at your craft before you can fully begin to market yourself to voice over agents and agencies. This will likely involve hours and hours of comprehensive practice – be prepared to really challenge yourself. Think of it this way… a dancer may have an innate ability to move to rhythms, but if he or she doesn’t practice over and over and over again, he or she will never become anything other than mediocre. You may even want to hire a vocal coach who specializes in unique voice over talent (and that’s a true niche market!) to assist you in becoming the best you can be. Whatever you do, don’t simply assume that you’re “the greatest”; always strive to be better. Once you’ve rehearsed and sharpened your voice over skills, it’s time to get a voice over agent interested in you. Not surprisingly, there’s a plethora of voice over agencies out there, especially in the LA and New York areas. Some are reliable, others are questionable. You’ll need to do your homework in order to avoid the not-so-good ones. Ask for references and follow up on any you receive. Also, check the Better Business Bureau to eliminate any worries that a voice over agency may not be what it seems (that’s always a smart practice no matter what industry you’re in. )When you find a voice over agent who is willing to represent you, don’t stop practicing or taking care of yourself! Even if you only do a few voice over gigs a year, you’ll need to stay in tiptop shape. Keep those chords strong and good luck!For more information, visit VoiceOverLA.

Increase Sales And Emotion With A Professional Voice Over Talent

Most TV commercials you see, radio commercials you hear, training films, and more use the voice of a professional announcer. In the media industry, these much sought after voice pros are called Voice Over Talent.
A fine voice over talent can give you a warm, friendly read that not only entices prospects to take an interest in you, but effectively urges them to buy. A good voice can accentuate just the right words, stress the right phrases, and literally create an emotion in the listener.
In the past, many producers both large and small avoided working with top voice over talents because (1) they were hard to contact, (2) took weeks to finish the job, and (3) were very expensive. The usual method was to contact an advertising or talent agency who set up a session with the voice over talent. Not only could this take days, weeks, or even months for some top talents — the fee could range from several hundred to thousands of dollars and more.
Today the old system in still in place, but other top voice over artists are making the experience MUCH easier, quicker, and affordable. As a busy voice over talent, I offer voice services from my web site and often have the client’s job finished in as little as one hour. Fees are low enough for even the solo web site owner to afford a professional voice for their site’s greeting or flash presentation.
Here are a few things to look for in a voice over talent:
(1) The voice should be friendly and personable. A warm, friendly voice immediately creates a warm feeling for most people. That warm feeling can quickly translate into sales, sign-ups, and higher customer satisfaction.
(2) You don’t need a “voice of god. ” That’s the term a lot of people in the media industry use for those super deep voiced announcers you hear at the movies and sometimes on the radio. Studies show customers and prospects are more likely to connect with a voice that sounds more like a regular person.
(3) But unlike an everyday person, professional voices know how to accentuate a word, stress a phrase, and create a mental image for the listener. This ability is probably the number one thing you should look for. Listen closely how the talent reads a script. Is the reading flat or are they bringing the script to life?
(4) Don’t blow your budget on an overly expensive voice over talent. Getting the agency’s top voice may be impressive to your friends, but saving the money and using a high quality but affordable voice over artist will give you as good or better results. You can use the money you save to enhance other aspects of your project, giving you a better shot at success.
Finally, keep in mind most people act on their feelings, not necessarily their logic. Nothing stimulates emotions like a good voice. Using a professional voice over talent makes a lot of sense.

Auditions for voice actors in the new era – the best way to ensure more bookings.

If you follow the trends, we can say that the Voice Over Casting business is moving from online sources. At least it is becoming an inexpensive way for new talent to enter the market and listened to. Many of these talents have the courage to market home-made everything, demos, packaging, websites, commercial copy, study settings, and the list goes on. They send home-made CD's that have done their study at home, reading the entries in the country of origin and contribute to their sites homemade. Do not frown on this, because that is how almost everyone starts. The problem is now. . . Everyone wants to be a type of voice or a child, which means that the pool of talent, or a little 'of stagnant water, that the matter has gone to the very muddy demo after demo after demo is a market for talent, after talent after talent. . For me, I think.

Many of these boys and girls are filtered through the costs of doing business, and many attempts to discourage the hiring of a few, and even stay on the sidelines. What is a good thing for all of us who choose to stay in the game every day and continue to deal with rejection and other headaches that come with business. What we leave behind is the chaff that have moved from greener pastures. The producer still lined with shelves of demos and CDs.

I have been a lot of agencies and it is almost ridiculous what some people send agents to try to attract businesses. All we have to do is watch the new season of American Idol to see how people spent half of my heart to reach the main companies of alloys. This time, we are all guilty of it. I noticed some time ago that I myself had been "a bit 'lazy' is the experimental process. 10 years, you tend to develop a routine where you have all the same. I came back and took a good look at how I was physically located at the time of the test line. I was there for the mixing console in the studio, I usually use a microphone in front of coaching, Talk Back, ISDN, and Booth, the recording sessions. Mic stand, when the show was set at the bottom, I collapsed in my chair, leaning a bit 'on the right, and do nothing but grumble my way through the test. Then a little concern ', I have some basic things to change the file and send it on. I no longer had time to set the right amount of effort for the test. I was still doing a good job. The question is: should I have done a good job I could. The answer is no. I could certainly do much better. I started to reorganize the MIC so I had to resist using it. No longer sit here and shoot off like it does not matter. I stand by all the other productions that I do, why not put as much effort to test? It is quite easy to answer. . . Hearing is a laborious and tedious. The only thing that makes it tolerable is thought that perhaps something a lot of ground. And your spirit will always be more to do.

Hearing is also one of the things we need to do to get a job, so then, when it comes to remove the garbage. If we do that no one – and until you are watching, we are able to submit the post for a while '. What happens when it is sitting there again? It starts to smell. In much the same way as they do the test, when we begin to see that it works, or something, "which is below us, as we have done this long enough, and we know what we're doing.

What a bad attitude. Each test is a new opportunity to go back. We get up, sit straight, (or in my case, standing) and go after new jobs some of the major real taste. I had some experience in the studio last month, if one can say that the talent not only care, or the idea of work is beneath them for some reason. So why even bother to apply? If you're not going to give your all, because even the time? Hearings were mixed with some of these young talents, who are trying too hard to sound cool.

You can hear every aspect of audio to be sent. Straining and pushing it sound like God knows what. First of all, they sound like no one is working, but himself. But compared with the experienced talent that "plays" their bed, two demos sound strikingly familiar to each other. How do you ask? They were not just right. Observations I have about 100, almost half of them hit the round file (trash), because the sound quality alone. If you send Spam that in trying to get that concert, I would have nightmares about what the deal, if I had the sound they produce in their study? The other 60% or thereabouts, some nail it. Plain old nail it. They have been read, have made their voice, and they got the interpretation. Made it difficult to decide who to ask.

Then it was Shatners is the stack – it is a self-deprecating Shatner'm talking about. They just pushed too hard, or tried to do something that was completely out of their range and experience. Hearings will never be "experimental." This time it was just a little thing that can go unnoticed if no one else can choose, but in this case did not have other talents that have hit the nail on the head. At times, it was surprising that some of the best talent has decided to set their own words of the script, because I do not like the way it is written, then there was the English professor, who took it upon themselves to correct us as we had to sign copy. Not that he really had the time to read, beginning to say, "Oh, and how the ______ does not actually use the word" or "this part of the script really needs some 'work." ; Absolute no-nos. I do not care who you are. . Words on the page with the words you want to hear. You never, ever taken, if you plan to go out of contempt for the people who wrote the screenplay. At least we have a tendency to take you. This does not mean that if someone was up to dial the phone and starts with "I'm worried about the copy." He walked away from us never to hear again.

At least if the producer or the customer may be willing to listen. Sometimes the talent comes out really good stuff, and get thanked for that. But not those who think they can stay on top of a mountain as a kind of Shakespeare and the authority to dictate to customers and producers of what is and is properly Got Another Thing Coming. Hopefully, by the way in which people there are too many. . Needless to say, the demo ended with a round file.

Then there are those who made you laugh. Again, think of American Idol. . . Auditions after Mom in the kitchen of his laptop computer microphone $ 5, and little Johnny to ride his Big Wheel across the linoleum floor and little Jenny is Johnny crying in the background. In the midst of his reading, the mother turns around and shoosh her children, "Can you all calm, the mother is trying to do something .." I'm not kidding, he actually left that part of the experiment.

This would be a chaff "" I mentioned earlier. Only those who have no business even trying, but I am still trying, though. There have been some of these tests. Have been remarkable! And 'the only time I've been a customer of material around the tears in my studio floor, and if you have been in the studio, you know, it is not enough space to roll. (A quick note to all those who made their own demos and Studio last month: This article was not someone who works in the background. It refers to nothing to do with the demos submitted by people actually listen to the work we have done. I just wanted to say thank you .. you know)

I try to make the point is this: There are a lot of competition in voice work there. Some of the best talents of the world subjected to the work for the rest of us. And to make the worst. We must find a way to ensure that there are like them, while we are trying to become the best you can be. Old and new talents are guilty of not putting its best foot for the future in context. E 'in these cases, a good VO bad sound, and in turn makes the VO Bad sound better, or at least not as bad as the worst. Only then can we combat the natural tendency to grow is pleased to move up, how we do things.

Also understand that the only people who survive in this area are those willing to scratch and claw their way up. I'm really hungry, who refuse to accept any answer, are the ones who are going much longer than the denial. The rejection is only part of the game. Voice over quality. And 'what works for themselves. The only difference is in the market today is very rarely the target group a vocal talent. When you had to go into the studio all the time working in the business world has always been a kind of audience. Although it was only a producer and engineer. New York City, almost every test procedure is the audience. This is a trend of beauty that I mentioned at the beginning, slowly but surely, the need to give the house a test is death. I doubt it never disappears completely. Large companies are not known for leaving the natural talent to manage their own projects studies for large advertisers. Again, if the study is quite good, and your reputation is such that the producer has to rely on a product that is intended to offer, you will notice a nice little 'Do it yourself "type productions are possible.

So I can not emphasize enough the need to CRAM for your skills test, and make sure that the product you are sending to customers is the best.

Take a look around, if there are ways to improve our products. You spent a lot of time sitting the test? Well, then get up. You made a series of rapid change, you go up? Then start to spend some 'time to them, or try to read the manuscript three times each, and choose the best platform. Maybe you do not know what is best. . Drop Study note, say the difference.

The family can be a big problem. Except that they are noisy, but you can feel comfortable reading aloud with their earshot. A lot of times the family can be a real murderess. If you do not fully understand the exercise, which are susceptible to bug on it, or give you a hard to make fun of you or ridicule, or to read the tone you were trying to do. They do not realize about you. It 'the same diet. If you start to lose some weight 'and go for the operation of the family in the same breath of the family used to congratulate you on achieving, they say, the words "This is a piece of cake." Or, " ; Anyone for pizza? I heard some people compare to a family member is unconsciously jealous of you, and do things to derail or sabotage your work. Without this change in Dr. Phil episode, I turn to you or a family, just know this:

Why, family members or people at home must be used in a vacuum, or decide to re-tile the kitchen after 2 minutes to sit and read. I'm just going to do it and do it again and again. Until understand. You need to sit down and talk with them. You get your point across, though, that you try to do one of the most difficult, most of the United Nations natural things in the world, and you try to live it. You need to understand how these interruptions, or indifference to what you're trying to make it impossible for you to do so. Once understood, with a little 'practice and a few reminders, most of the family members begin to get a little' more understanding, and even become your biggest supporters.

If you still obstructionists when you tried to talk to them, so I think that gives something to the interest of all jealousy. If you find that having the family of the house makes it difficult to really what you're doing, you're not alone. What disturbs me. Therefore, most private place you can find the best. If there is no privacy, and we are afraid that someone might hear, just to get over it. This is an artistic performance, and the actor has never really known for his acting shower. You have to learn this stuff off the belt, although some might be time to listen.

Although we are a theme of family: Have you started reading the scripts, and Johnny and Jenny to pretend to be a WWF cage match in the background? If so, use the demons of the book to read, providing them with the other side of the house, or something like that. Oh. . One more thing. . Please turn off the baby monitor if you maintain a "Studio". We had a couple of these too. Do not believe some of the stuff people send. . . American Idol again.

Take a look at your environment in the studio. Something that makes noise is a sensitive place your ears when you send it. People who are listening to your work in general session of less than four meters from the dollar $ 1000 monitors (speakers to all of you American Idol and WWF fans) and you can hear the nails grow. Sound insulation is a good hobby to study, or at least get some information, if you want to extract more work.

Seriously review the audio chain. What is (or not) the signal path? Have the more modest and still life, or have any known device man linked to the microphone. The equipment rack towers burning behind his study and postpone ton of heat and noise. Locate them in another room, or better yet remove and put them on eBay. Most of the time, producers are looking for a good voice, clean and dry. No effect, no processing, no nothing. Now I know, "Of Radio ', it is clear that, and you have a valid point. Many producers are looking for images for rent sounds produced entirely in sound, and you have what it takes to do your job. Many of the talents to produce their own sound, which in turn will not make them good providers. Production capacities are learned, either the pilot or the hard way (to try to obtain directly from them).

Beware the views of fans and the world. Although they have many advantages when it comes to true fidelity of the music, which apply to commercial display, a lot of sound that produces the settings for $ 20,000 U.S. dollars is driven by a $ 2 Chinese speakers did. Knowing the difference is the real trick. Which brings me to one of the ways you can polish the product. Know the half, he left. If you are employed and produces voice to read the pages, there is not much in creating a better fit Masterwork THX and Skywalker Sound. The file does not play the movie theater, someone will come out from computer speakers at work. I saw people healthy Rumble pathetic little speakers off the desktop first. . Not need it.

I met a couple of SP who want to think for himself (and the right amount of time) because of "audiophile". Some of them are not so far in the past. They were people of great talent in the production of very good ears. Unfortunately, only the shadow of their own powers, arrogance, what might be considered a good "sound-voice". Many of them paint a little 'esoteric corners of production only if they are doing is a Boss Jock has a litter of AM and FM dial. Sure, it's a good job, though never enough. But it makes you a voice talent? Maybe. . But what a voice talent? That is a trick pony, and almost any good? More than likely.

I'm sorry the news to you, not the voice imaging radio. E 'part of it. But it is a bargain. E 'on the radio. The possibility of saying 'Hit Music all the best of Barbados "is not the same thing as a 2-drive now, with the narration and The History Channel, the U. S. Army, A & E or Discovery. Producers who work with those companies who focus is clear that "Radio" or "voice" announcer and the last time I checked, imaging costs about $ 150 dollars a sheet, even though the narration and the talents Top commercial shelf can make $ 750 $ 1500 10 seconds of their entry. Or you want to grow up to be? Auditions posted daily for direction, not as "Please not present" and "seeking Guy radio, but a real person."

This shows that many people do not like the "Guys Radio" real people. If you have already worked in radio, which I did for four years, we know that in many cases it is the truth. Many will remember the radio than any other people. Perhaps some part of the body of a person, but not people. OK, I'll stop Editorial. Wait a minute, that's my opinion. I do not own it. That's why I do what I like. How are the views, such as the Radio Boys Everybody's got one.

The trick is landing more gigs in your ability to satisfy the masses. Let the weaker companies in the world to get a similar experiment, the guys are great. They provide not only a lame duck because that guy has a small customer. Give him the same product you try to give Pepsi or McDonald's and leave the bad experience of poor people in PA. We try our best that there is every chance you get. If you need advice or do not know if you make a right. I am always ready to discuss.

Look at the time of the day the hearings and see if there is something capable of doing so in the past. You can test first thing in the morning, four hours to get up. It is high time that the head is clear, your voice is most rested and very little else in the world over. If you work at night, or just for a test during the night, try a nice hot tea, you sit (or stand) to read. Do not do it as a strong black tea, try something a little 'lighter, such as green tea. If you only test at mid-day, be sure to remove all the remaining Big Mac explanations of his throat, drink hot green tea, and try not to demand payment of the first days of your voice. If anyone's list right elixir and throat, please share here. I'll post to my site.

When I was on the radio, I'm working on a change of Split, which was the door at 3:30 and not return until 10:30. Then I had to turn around and leave at 1:30 and not return home until 8:30 at night. I was always tired, I had a test, and overall I felt like I was losing touch with VO biz. . Solution: Leave the radio. . This is what I did. I never looked back.

The radio is not what it is. I do not think ever the same, because the spoliation and Janet Jackson. Howard Stern is no longer, no more freedom to rattle off the mouth for as long as you are not a curse. These are all dying, only a small part of what it was before. I have also been encouraged to abandon ship when I received a letter in their own companies (large-scale corporate Big), said that Congress and / or Congress Jr. (FCC) had passed "Emergency Bill", which actually said that if I were a little 'ol' me, as much as anything deemed inappropriate given that I could be fined $ 14,000, or some insane amount of money. The company I worked for made it clear that the letter would soon launch a line in front of me, if such a situation occurred. That's all I needed. I do not even clean my pod, I'm just sharing. I left on the wall posters and pictures of my family console. . I was away. . I do not need it so bad, and the radio was not what he came for the radio. I had the radio to get the job longer free.

I set a big mistake, because there was a lot of benefit from the work of moving air for some time. Get in touch with a lot of different techniques and you can spend a lot of time learning the MIC and it is really beautiful. After a while ', should be a friend, you can conserve, protect and speak. . . . Ok. . This is starting to weird. . What I'm trying to say that there was nothing wrong with experience. It 'just that, very rarely has the experience to apply to work freelance radio voice when it comes to getting something. Yes, you will have the opportunity to express their material to the local dealer or the hairdresser arrives. These opportunities are only because post. Leave the station and see if any of these customers will call you when they are no longer linked to it.

These are kids who were in the station in my town for over twenty years, and I think I heard them, maybe 20 points each. And that is generous. I am sure there are many people are gearing up to enforce their days in radio career started SP. Allow me to save a minute. . Save. Keep it for you. The last thing I or anyone else will benefit from is someone to come, which should be dusty and their stories of success. If you are a work of talent and you think you owe it to the radio, good for you. . Your anecdotes are welcome, if it is obvious that someone may benefit.

So you can say, "Hey Mike, you have quite a difficult radio guys do not ya?" Well, yes. . . I am. Just as your parents were told not to touch the stove or play in matches was dangerous, I tried to keep thinking every SP that radio is a quest to become a boy name. Since it is not. Let me clear delineation. If you want to be a radio, going to send to school. Praise of Connecticut schools of broadcasting, as it is when I did, and when I graduated, I sent 2 emails and had to rent 45 minutes to send them away. If you want to be a voice in the boy or girl, do not go on the radio. Do not sign to send to school, and another thing. . . No radio. . These are two different entities and should be treated as such. If you do not log on to send to school, you can spend as much as you try to enter the voice over. In this case, both are the same thing. That point forward, each of them take the streets completely different.

So you might say, "Hey, Mike, (if you do not already called me a few things now), do not think you are alienating people who are in radio, and reduces the incentive to learn more about voice over?" ; I had to get this.

If you have a radio, and you think you want to get SP as a freelance, do not despair just for me. I'm sure that at some point someone said, 'Hey, you have a beautiful voice, you have the radio. 'What did you say, when slid closer to the little lady and ordered a drink, "Why yes, I would .. and I .. "This case is a boy radio. Voice over talent would have said "Thanks, I'm glad you noticed. I made a sound business four years. "You may have heard of me, Betty Flower Shop commercial that ran last month, cable channel 26. "(It is expected that 10,000 years.) to which he nods" Yes "and then proceeds to tell him about every other job he has done, he nods Uh-huh. Then you go from machine to obtain a copy of the demo tape. When he gets back on the other hand on him and ask if the company is working to recruit voice talent, is sitting hunched in his Bar Stool, I looked at, because SIPS who buy his drink? Radio Guy.

I admit, this story is a decoration at all, but not too far from it, as desperate young vocal talent can play in situations where an advantage again. And 'even in the same way aspiring radio guy or girl can work if you wanted to get on the radio and they have just met someone who worked at the local station. It does not matter even if all the boy did not wash the floors, the idea would cross their minds. The feeling is the same, the desire for success and feelings of both is the same, even if you must take to do either are completely different. The radio is very much "to learn than to go to." You get a check, you will learn the ropes, even if it is a very fine control, you pay when you learn.

When you start trying to express the work, you pay as you learn. You can pay a lot. . . and you can pay much more than one way. After a few hours on the Internet, should demonstrate that there is no shortage of people out of their hands, offering to help for free. I am one of them. You are best advised to carefully stage, when it comes to imposing anything on any of these hands. Who want to work, or are desperate to make a voice a lot when they are hungry. There are a lot of people, "Internet-land", as well as everything else, waiting to take the right path that desperate. Makes a lot of hungry people, if they consider bringing food, or the one who can satisfy the palette of this stuff. Lots of gifts will take place along the road, and woe. Their fault or the fault of people offered to help them? Most often, human nature, when they are not to blame others around them. It takes very little sign someone to turn inwards and the goal of seeing how they could contribute their own death. In the case of who is to blame for the vocal talent does not exist, is a mixture of both teachers and students is a lot of levels.

What students must do in any case is to keep their end of negotiations with the practice and follow the instructions. When a coach on the other hand seems to be what they have failed. The line is to sit and wonder why he never took a first student. Excuse me while I "Star break Warsian" here, but Obi-Wan tried to teach Anakin the power of their own, without guidance, and Yoda. Makes his students and Anakin turned to the dark side. Although Obi-Wan and Anakin, still in the final analysis, I think Obi-Wan at the end of the movie and I thought it was a good man. This is a place, now back to reality.

VoiceOver Yoda and the force is not the only force that you want the person who took the money, when you find you do not get any work and you stink. When a coach does for you, or anyone you give money to you, not the real world, you're not going to like him, and you're really not thinking that it's a good man. In most cases, is a student who declares himself that the person has failed, because they have managed the project. What does the fact that the student does not understand that many times took a few precautions at the time of delivery of money to someone who stood for "voice talent."

Many times I had to appear on the eve of talent, you want me to do for them, you want me to do the vocal talent. I will try my greatest during the assessment to scare away. I tell them how difficult it is. I tell them how expensive it becomes. I tell them how long it lasts. I tell them that even if education does not guarantee getting hired. They also told of talent, that probably will never be able to work in the commercial market, and makes only the phone and cable locations at the end of his life. And still wanted to continue. They throw their money on the table and say, 'OK, you think you can make me a boy voice? "No matter how I tried, I just do not understand. It is at this stage, no coach should ever take a student. Why are doomed to failure, and on top of a bus and spend the rest of their lives to do is say bad things about them. You can not do this activity. You have to do yourself.

Young talent, whether from a radio or Radio Shack, the most advisable to search for and collect any information that can be patient and not jump into something at once. Decisions that make a more stable base of information you can gather, after an exhausting search. Every talent, who never walked in my office with the stars in their eyes were heard to say the same things you see here.

Many people have made this type of advice. I made a lot of information for people at no cost, for two reasons: 1 so that every SP have more arrows in their quiver as they come out to learn to look for the "Voodoo What we are doing so well." (Thanks to Harvey Korman and Mel Brooks) 2 Therefore, considering that someone will pay the studio or demo producer piece of money to think about my study and provides information and decide for themselves who you can trust.

Look around. . Caveat emptor. . Go with your gut in everything you do. . I hope you'll come to your conclusions. I just hope they are correct. Is in doubt – ask. I have been honest here. Are just more private.

Incidentally, when I was writing this experiment came from the large national advertisers. By the time I had received, 70 a part of the experimental work already. E 'was certainly one of those where you say "Ahh, there's then get this. Look at how many people have posted about this. "Those who do not cross my mind. Almost eliminated and moved. But I went ahead and did the same. The next day he contacted me and said that there are some people who "kind of got it, but I took a spot. I got the concert, recorded on site and was paid twice my share of talent, because I worked in their study, and were so pleased with the result. I found a week later, the guests were blown away to read. I'm not here in Tooting your own Horn. This really happened. There is also my website www. michaelminetree. com in different readings. This is the first. Only shows what little faith the practical skills and work to do to you this business. It 'a great year for everyone. I'll see you on the air.
