This coming Saturday, May 13th will be the final opportunity for everyone to attend the Live AMA sessions that we have been having every Saturday. Also the last day for this group, sadly will be Monday, May 22nd. However, @Michael Ray will be doing an amazing live Zoom session every Saturday at 1 pm EST starting May 20th. I highly encourage everyone to reach out to him for more info and to join Mike and take advantage of his knowledge in the realm of not only audio production but client acquisition as well! Finally, everyone that has access to the Voice Over Domination Course will also have access to all of the live recorded Zoom sessions for the AMA as well. I just added that to the bonus section of that course. If you do not have access to that course you can get more information on that here https://www.stepstovoiceoversuccess.com/offers/2zzjbows #GRINDANDDONTQUIT -Earl
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
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 .😊
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.
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.

Here's something some of you may already know. I'm looking to do a video podcast. Mainly about people in the group. I'm looking to prerecord us talking to each other talking about what you were doing before working in voice over. What are you working on know. How and were can people find you if they would like you to work on a prefect they have. Those are the main three things I would like to get out there. Who you are. What you can do. (here you might want to have a clip of you're latest project. Earl pointed out where you shouldn't look for people betting your door down in a week. But long term you might get some one calling you. This is a marathon and this will be playing every time all the time on the net. And we want to let them see us over and over again. That's phase one, Phase two is to make them into shorts. Shorts get plaid more then whole podcast so they get seen more often. And again the more often we are seen the more often we get talked about. If you saw the AmA from 4/08/23. I pointed out a man named Mattress Max. He owns a store in Houston called Gallery furniture. He's also one of the richest men in Texas. Why was I talking about him? Well you have to looking a the AmA to see. But I also heard him speak to HISD Teachers. Were He told his story ( That's for later). But in it he talk about a man in his town who everyone called the tire man, because were ever he went he Wore a tire around him. And ever one laughed at him. But when the needed a tire... Who do you think they thought of. And where do you think they all got their tires from. That's right, the tire man. And Mattress took that Idea and were ever he goes you see Gallery Furniture, on his Benz his 100plus K cigar speed boat. He's got kidd's that are more then likely out of collage. And where do you think they went? Any where they wanted to, because money was no object. I've never seen him in anything but a Gallery Furniture T shirt. And for the thirty years I lived in Houston other Furniture's popped up trying the same thing. I only know of one who made it. So guess what my plan is copy Earl and get us out there before some else does.

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.
One thing with having AmA's on here is that you can go back and look for new ideas. Or learn something that at that time you missed. I love going back and hear something that I missed while it was live. And if you've never been on one of them they are full of nuggets of pure gold. once you've really heard what happening on them, you'll laugh you'll cry but you will never want to say good bye.😊
I am excited to announce that SnapStudio is a sponsor of my The Earl Hall Show. I created this video for them and you guys will be the first to see and hear it! This commercial is simply all about the sound you can produce with this great piece of gear. https://amzn.to/3LEohZf
It’s someone that doesn’t believe in eating. Just breathing for nourishment 😮 Just finished up this VO job from fiverr on a character that is the head of a breatharianism cult 😊 Of course recorded in my SnapStudio 😁 https://amzn.to/3pirl5I
Hello everyone. If you have never been to a live AMA that I do every Saturday at 1pm EST you don't want to miss what is coming in these last two sessions we have before the close of this community on May 22nd. I mentioned this in our last AMA session that this group would be going away as I am building and pursuing my dreams and goals. Of course the website www.stepstovoiceoversuccess.com will continue to be there for all of you training needs with its courses and 1-on-1 sessions with me. I am excited to see people in this group step up and become leaders. This is one of my greatest joys! Many of you know about my brand new show launching on May 25th called The Earl Hall Show. I am excited about interviewing some of you even on that show. There are a lot of great things happening and I am excited about this next chapter for me and Earl Hall Studio LLC. Let us all continue to #grindanddontquit - Earl
I've been in two other groups in the past. And they tend to fall apart as they are starting up. But this group from day one, I felt that you guys were different. There's a feeling that we all want to help each other grow and succeed both as a voice artist and a business person. And that's very special.
Well here we are , a new month many lessons learned in the previous.. Ups and downs surrounded by victories of all sizes!! So my question to the family is what are your goals for the next 31 days? what would you like to see checked of on your to do and learn list for this month.. **APRIL VO SHOWERS ... BRING MAY VO FLOWERS
I want to take a second to start this post by saying thank you, these last few months the Saturday ama has helped me grow exponentially as a vo talent.but not just with my vo abilities but with everything, so a glowing endorsement from earl has made me feel I'm more prepared than I thought.Or maybe I knew but needed the push.So allow me to introduc The Well Moderated Q & A . Premiere episode will be June 3rd 2023 at 1 pm est on zoom. (Link to follow as we get to mid may). All questions and comments will be welcomed. Let's continue to grow as a family, let's add as a family. As always with me if I don't know, let's find out together. All my experiences and thinks I've learned through all my tech experiences will be shared.. More to follow but wanted every one to know that I'm here and ready to share and grow..!!! The Well Moderated Q & A W/ Michael w. Ray 1pm on zoom Sat June 3rd
Defining entrepreneurship is taking specific action not caring what people say or think. Don't withhold your talents. Not letting fear grip you. Re-assessing wants vs. needs in your VO pursuit. You may have them backwards. A rumbling belly is the best motivator. Pay the short list minimal attention. Be the first to audition. Pay attention to ethnic roles for auditioning. Stay diligent. Lighten up and play. Go outside the performance box. How hungry are you? Only execution matters. A salary is a drug they give to you forget your dreams. Plan your work and work your plan. GADQ!!!
Where I live down here in deep south Texas. You still have power outages and wifi outages. Friday was one of them. Power way out and wifi was out as well. So the question is what do you do if it hits you on the very day you have a project due? The power outage is an easy fix, buy an large external battery that last say for 4 hours. Now the wifi. That's a toughy. I have that happen to me when Houston got hit by a Hurricane, I went to the nearest hospital or I could have gone to a fire house or police station, and was going to use their electricity. all three have back up generations. But here all three are too far for me to go to. And I don't drive anymore by chose. And I think wifi towers have their own back up power. ( as long and the don't get knocked down.) Any ideas?
Sometimes it’s really fun to just CREATE and SHARE! I hope you take the time to watch the 2 downloads I've attached and I hope they inspire you all over again to use your voice for the betterment of humanity in whatever way you feel called to do so! Here is a 6 min excerpt from a 45 minute video I did back in 2021. I did the audio narration and then learned how to use Premiere Pro doing this video. It took me 2.5 months for the whole thing I had an unexpected gift from doing this – I shared my voice to help make the world a better place and in doing so, it really got me excited about voiceover and creating all over again. The time flew by when creating this video. Sometimes we can get lost in trying to “make money” to survive and lose sight of why we chose to get into voiceover in the first place – which for many is to use our voice to help make our world a better place. It was such a wonderful win-win experience for me creating this – I learned a lot, I got to share my gifts with the world and I had a lot of fun doing it! In case anyone is interested, here’s what I used to create this awesome video: Audio: Audacity and Adobe Audition with Shure SM58 mic and Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface; Video Editing: Adobe Premiere Pro Images: All free on Pixabay.com Music: All free music from Youtube Music Library Credits and Motion Graphics/Animation: free MOGRTs (motion graphics templates) files from RoyFx I hope you watch this video and are inspired and re-ignited about how fun it is to create using your voice and share it with the world! P.S. The caption file I included in this post (the 2nd file) has what I found to be a very motivational sharing. I am not religious (I am more metaphysical in my world view) but still I hope you find the short clip as encouraging as I did. No matter what you are experiencing in life right now, God has got your back! Love, peace and blessings to all! LaTonya
