The new year is coming right up, right around the corner!  What are YOU going to do in 2019!?!?  How are you going to make this the best year ever?  What plans do you hold for yourself, what lofty (or unlofty) aspirations do you aspire to?  Where are you setting your sights?  Let’s hear it!  Let’s see what you’re planning on doing and how you plan to rock the voiceover world, and your personal finances, for good!!  Show and tell time!!!

One of my main goals is to acquire one new recurring client per month, so that that client continues to come back and book me for various jobs.  Right now I have several, but I always want and need more.  Those recurring clients are the ones who become your best friends in the voiceover industry!  Not only do they book you for existing projects but then they come up with NEW projects that they need you to voice as well!  It’s amazing, it’s ongoing, and it’s a beautiful relationship that you can depend on, and that you want to cultivate and pay attention to.  You want to thank them!  Have you sent out gift cards to your clients yet?  Have you made a point to thank them for an awesome year in voiceovers?  What efforts or lengths do you go to to show your appreciation to these people that have shown you such appreciation so far by repeatedly hiring you?  There’s no extent too far to go.  Gift cards speak volumes, and your thanks not only resounds gratitude to them, but it tells them that you’re still here!  It may have been some time since they last hired you!  So how do you get yourself back on their radar?  Gift cards, baby!  Thanks!!  Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of thanks!  Neverending gratitude for what they have done for you!  Don’t let opportunities to say thanks pass you by.  These people put bread and butter on your table, and you must extend them gratitude and tell them how much they mean to you.  It’s that crucial.

Set goals for yourself for the new year!  Set reasonable, attainable, logical goals based on dreams and hopes and plans and framework.  You can do it!  Let’s make 2019 the best VO year ever!
