I'm excited and yet saddened. This particular forum will be ending very soon. Call it the end of the beginning if you will. Quite a few things were shared between all of us. The main goal of course is conquering the things that hold us back and embracing the future with nervous excitement and expectation for what is to come. I appreciate having ya'll around and listening to the good, bad, ugly...but never quitting. It's all inspirational. I can't wait to see the progress we make together and individually. Thanks Earl, Mike, and ALL! GADQ

Got Mouth Noise?
Got this message from Marc Cashman regarding solution to mouth noise. Just sharing in case someone else may be vexed with this problem. The answer is very simple. Somehow in the passage of time, I forgot to breath. GADQ! Marc Cashman Mitigating mouth noise is simply a process of breathing through your phrases. The moment you stop the air flow is when mouth noise occurs. If you're mindful of breathing through phrases, you'll virtually eliminate mouth sounds. Add a noise gate in post and you'll have cut down on your editing time significantly.

My vexation! Besides mouth noise, it's interesting the things one can hear just from yourself. I recall knuckles or bones cracking, swallowing, stomach noises, clothing, hitting my music stand accidentally, or even foot(or feet) movement.🤫
Today was the last AmA with Earl. Two things. One you will never really know how much you effect a person. Even when you tell them, Earl in the short time I've been with him and the group. I have done more in the short time I've been with him. There aren't enough words in the English language to express the thanks for helping me move forward with my career....Business as a voice over artiest. And two he as said somethings that will be like a hard kick in your stomach. But sometimes you need that person in your life who can tell you what you need to hear so you can move on to do what you really want to do. This was the last one with him, because like the saying goes, he's work was done and it's time to move on. and we will follow him as we work om our own journeys. And he'll be right there look over our shoulders. And whispering a fine point or two. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE. AND AS ALWAYS YOU KNOW IF YOU NEED ANY OF US WE HAVE YOUR BACK .😊

Stick around Greg. There's more to come!
Since I started learning voice over work. I've had three coaches, The first one passed a few years back. But when I was working with her she was going strong at 80 plus years old. The second one who I worked with the longest. Just closed his studio a few months back. I still see and chat with him on Face book. The third one I asked when was he coming to Houston. And a month later he announced he was coming to Dallas. I even paid him to make my Demo. I still have his number and see him on my Face book page as well. But we haven't said a word to each other in years. They all have their strong points that I picked up and still use today. But I hadn't done much until I ran across Earl's videos, I can't remember which one that started me thinking it's time to get back to work. And for the most part it's not impotent which one it was. One of them spoke to me and next thing I know I found myself in the hunt to work and lost in the weeds but looking to win. Earl has something my three other coaches didn't have. And that is a message that if you fight to win you will win. And now he's set up a small group of us to follow in his foot steps to win. This is not the end, but a beginning for those who want it. Like I said I can never take anything away from the other coaches. But Earl stand out from them.

Earl stands out. He makes blatantly clear about the things that hold us back as well as reasons to move forward. He's also a bit of a rebel because he went against the grain and made it successfully!
At one of the AmA's Earl talked about finding work in your area. Talk to people and tell them what you do. Go to small business gatherings and talk to other business owners (My learned experience) and then about your voice over business. Not comfortable with that one cousin Who I found out about through Ancestry co Wrote a book. Talked to her offered to do a trailer for her for free and explained how for me it would be practice. But for her I would post it on Face book ( free advertisement for her), before I finished she e-mailed me a photo of the back of her book. Next person was my sister-in- law. Her sister wrote and published a book. I couldn't get a hold of her. So I talked to my sister-in- law Short answer is I've put the finishing touch on it and will be posting It on my Face book page. Why on my page? I'm starting there and show ceasing my work. But if she contacts me and ask to put it on her page or where ever. I'm still show casing my work and Face book you'll see Adds for promoting books. I'm doing the same thing but I'm showing my work not just asking who wants to have their book promoted. And the last one is I called a long time friend with the idea of doing a comical promo for his business. while talking to him, he stopped me and then put us on a three way call with someone he works with. And bingo! I got my first paying gag. So why did I title this discovering? Because I discovered I like hunting for work. And with that thought I'm am looking at one old hunting ground, Email production companies and letting them know I'm here right in their back yard. And the pay to play web sights. I've also discovered that it's not busy work, and for some they might think is hunting for small game. I'll take a dozen small game while looking for the big one.
