"My New Year's Resolution is to make no New Year's Resolutions!" - Doc Phillips, et. al.

Party on, 


Welcome to my newsletter for January, 2007.

So - you've resolved to lose that 12 pounds you gained over the holidays.  Or, to quit smoking (especially since many states have "voted" in an inordinate tax on tobacco)... Whatever your resolution, do you intend to keep it?  Of course, you do.  But... intentions lack action.  I'm not here to lecture you, believe me.  I'm among the worst for keeping New Year's resolutions, which is why I no longer make them.  Do what's right for you.  New Year's Resolutions, after all, are an age old custom.

My personal resolution is to offer better service, more networking, and quality product that my clients not only depend upon, but appreciate.  Sounds good to me!

It simply makes good business sense.

I'm looking forward to great things for the new year and I'm always open to new business.  Feel free to contact me any time to discuss your next project.


I'd like to announce right here in my very own newsletter the first in a series of unique voiceover seminars.  This first event happens in March in Las Vegas, NV.  Some of voiceover's biggest names will not only be in attendance, but many will be actually sharing what they know during this 4+ days event.  To find out more, please click this link:   

Voice 2007's Voiceover International Creative Experience

I'll be there and will be looking forward to meeting you!
