It was 5 years ago today that I started this little blog about “voiceover, life and assorted other ramblings.” You have my abiding gratitude for stopping by here and reading from time to time.
Today is a double anniversary, because not only is it my Fifth blogiversary, but it was one year ago yesterday that spent my very last day at my corporate job. In spite of the fact that the economy was not going great, I had resigned my position so that I could just concentrate on voiceover work, on telling stories for people; so today is the first anniversary of my full and solitary concentration on voiceover. I’m so very grateful to every one of my clients. Some have come and some have gone and many have stayed, but each one is precious. I truly do love helping give voice to your words.
It seemed for a long time like it was an impossible dream, but if this is a dream please don’t wake me. Along with my clients, I’m also grateful for my friends who have been helpful and supportive in a myriad of ways. You know who you are. Each of you is so very precious to me. Thank you.
And my gratitude to my family, especially my first born and only daughter Karen and my oldest son Eric, both of whom have worked many hours helping me with my work. Our two younger sons, David and Brian have both done voiceovers for me when I needed kids voices. But, most especially to my wife Cinda, who has been a divinely appointed helpmeet at every turn. Thank you, Darling.
Where ever you are in your quest, if this is something you really want, don’t quit. It took me 26 years. No, I’m not kidding. 26 years. From 1983 to 2009. Your journey might be shorter. It might even be longer. But you will get there, if you don’t quit.
