I just started doing this a month ago! Customization got my VO and music production work load to double. This past weekend I had to turn down jobs due to time constraint. Right you are about the mindset! Great encouragement piece! Woohoo!

Congratulations on your success, Joan. It's wonderful to be able to turn jobs down.

Are you comfortable marketing yourself? Is it easy for you to find clients? If the answer to both questions is "yes," there's no need to read this article!

Great insight and something I struggle with a lot. You can have the best product out there, but if no one knows you are out there. It doesn't mean anything.
Paul Strikwerda
That's totally true. You'll make as much noise as the sound of one hand clapping!
