The other day I woke up with a dry, swollen throat. I figured it might have been an allergy-related issue and went about my day. I drank lots of water, took my multivitamins, and tried not to consider that this might be the start of a cold.  

Today I am forced to admit: yup: this is a cold. The throat is now truly thrashed. Si...

In the days before computers reduced social networking to 280 character, color-filtered, SEO-driven positioning statements, the wheels of business were greased by actual human interaction. How successful you were at acquiring and keeping clients was directly related to how well you could carry on a conversation in a social en...

Now that Summer is over and Mother Nature has started to wrap her icy fingers around the majority of the country, it's time to think about good ways to warm up the vocal cords before recording.

It’s a simple premise, and yet some people who're getting into the voiceover business just don’t get it.
