Last week, LinkedIn alerted all my connections to my one-year anniversary working at Julia Knippen Voiceovers. As the messages of congratulations came rolling in, I thought a lot about how I was going to write my final blog post of 2015, which I've been haphazardly documenting as my first year as a full-time voice actor.

I can't remember when I encountered the fortune cookie that offered me this particular piece of wisdom, but I think it was sometime in the late 90s. I've held onto it over the years, and it's currently taped to the bottom of my computer monitor, where I see it many times a day. Decades ago, […] MORE

My last post dealt with educating a potential client about fair rates and negotiating as a non-union performer working on a national broadcast spot. Earlier […] MORE
