Celebrate Your Isolation!

Hey there!

Doing what we do can be a very lonely situation: auditioning, study, rehearsal and so much more is done by ourselves in our artist’s garrett.

So is our ideation, and we often wish we had more support: a team that could help us get our ideas from concept to reality.

Be careful what you wish for. And be happy you have some privacy to dream.

For Your Health: Not Perfect. Just Better.

Hey there!

I got an email from a viewer who wants to be referred to as Jonesy, who wrote saying he felt a great deal of pressure to be perfect in his auditioning and his work, and spent so much time beating himself up when he’d make a mistake that it began to wear on his health.

He said that lately, he gets so mad at his lack of perfection that he is considering another line of work that isn’t so demanding.

I completely get this. I hear a version of it often…and here’s what I can offer as help.

The Gig Economy: RIP?

Hey there!

I’m seeing more and more articles decrying the depressing actual results for the people providing services to sites promoting the gig economy: Uber and Lyft drivers, DoorDash and GrubHub food deliverers, and so on.

One of them even has the headline “The Sharing Economy Was Always A Scam.” Harsh.

But, we have our own gig economy in the world of performance. It’s called Fiverr.

How long will it take for people to realize that sites like that can just as depressingly destructive as working for a big corporate behemoth?

Voices.com Complained To YouTube That I Violated Their Privacy

Hey there!

I don’t think Voices.com was happy that I read you their email asking me to join their coaches program on a previous video, along with my short and sweet response.

Even though all of the information I read about who sent that email and what their contact information was is publicly available at https://voices.com/coaching, they complained to YouTube that I violated their privacy.

YouTube let me know, I responded that what I said was publicly available, and that’s the last I heard.

So far.

The Crazy Backward Way IKEA Prices Their Stuff

Hey there!

I was flabbergasted when I first learned the process by which IKEA arrives at their ridiculously low prices.

You’d think they’d look at the materials, the labor, the distribution, the marketing and so on, then come up with a price that makes them a profit.

Yeah. No.

So…what can we learn from the crazy way they actually design their products?

One More Insanely Over-engineered Piece Of Gear: My UPS

Hey there!

I used to work at AOL, and in August of 1996, everyone at the company learned a very painful lesson.

It’s one that I pay attention to to this day. And the item in my setup that best exemplifies this lesson is a very large, very heavy box sitting in my closet.

You should strongly consider one as well.

Your Glasses And Crucial Laptop Positioning Info

Hey there!

I’ve been going to physical therapy for about a month to take care of a nagging neck and shoulder issue.

You’re not going to believe the reason they think I got this way – and I don’t want to waste my pain without you checking your own situation.
