Bettye Zoller is in Nashville this week teach classes for the NATS conference, and last night she took on a handful of Voice over talent to talk about the business of VO.
What a great time!
Everything from Aftra to agencies, marketing and demos, setting rates and Character Voices… We really touched on alot of major aspects of the Voice industry.
It was great to meet Bettye and other talented folks from the Mid-South Like Clinton, Jerri, Philip, Angela, Jake, Lyle, Cathi and Beth.
Bettye knows what she is talking about, and brings her real life experience to class. Its fun to hear VO stories from folks who have been at it, and been successful doing it!!
There were many nuggets of wisdom that I learned from the class, but the one that comes to mind first is this:
“You have to continue growing your business while doing your business”
I can keep working with the clients I have, but if I am not marketing myself and growing my business, my current clients could dry up…and then where would I be?
Up a stream with out the much needed paddle!!!
I look forward to keeping in touch with new VO friends and also joining Bettye in another class sometime in the future!!
I am looking forward to Bettye Zoller coming to Nashville June 30th. What a great opportunity to take a class from Bettye!
The session is called – “The Biz of VO- Earning $$ in Today’s Talking World”
You can check out Bettye’s Site – www.voicesvoices.com for the lowdown on Bettye.
Plus, you can check out Bettye’s Voices.com Podcasts.
More details as I learn them!!!
I had the pleasure of attending a day of “GMA” in downtown Nashville today. Its always good to be able to get out and see some friends and make some new acquaintances.
I ran into my friends from WAY FM, as well as Hope In Anguish radio.
Plus, I saw Alan Mason from Goodratings Strategic Services in the lobby of the hotel, and wanted to quickly introduce myself, plus thank him for his blog! (it’s a ‘Must Read’ for me!)
One of my goals for the new year is to get to more Voice Classes!!! I am very blessed to have a BFA in Theatre which included voice training and speech classes – but that has been some time ago!
There have been several classes here in Middle Tennessee held by Joe Loesch, who owns and operates Readio Theatre LLC, an audiobook production company. He is kicking off a new class right after the first of the year!
Have any of you Nashville VO’s taken Joe’s Class?
Working on the blog today – Changed the look a bit with a new theme from WordPress!
And have added a link to the right of “Nashville Voices”. Wanna give my Middle Tennessee Voice Pros some LOVE!
More to come!!
