Wait, Vices Can Be Good For Your Health?

Hey there!

(NOTE: Registration closes for the ACX Masterclass tomorrow night at 9pm PT. Don’t let this class pass you by. Click here to register now.)

I saw that there was a new book out called The Good Vices, by Harry and Erik Ofgang. And I got excited about what that might entail.

Turns out it’s all about moderation, but when moderated, the things that are supposedly universally bad for you are actually essential to your health.

Here’s what I mean.

With Royalty Share Plus, ACX Makes Hybrid Stipends Official

Hey there!

Everything old is new again, right? I’ve been teaching you, in the ACX Masterclass and in VO2GoGo, that you can negotiate a per-finished-hour stipend with your rights holder, in addition to your official royalty share deal.

That separate “hybrid stipend” (something I’ve been calling it since I created it in 2011 and has become an industry term) always had to be negotiated separately, outside ACX, and wasn’t protected by your ACX producer/rights holder contract.

That all ends today, and a beautiful new option is available to you, officially, on ACX.

How Much Is Enough To Make Per Hour?

Hey there!

(NOTE: Registration is now open for the ACX Masterclass, and we’re paying the first $300 of your tuition if you click here to register by tonight at 9p.)

We often talk about the challenge of income creation as entrepreneurs, and I hardly ever hear someone talk about how much money is enough.

I do hear a lot of people decrying how much famous actors make, and I wonder where each critic would draw the line between too little and too much. And…how much is just enough.

Everyone’s amount is different, so here’s a simple math equation to help you figure out where to draw your own line.

Even The Bible (And Game Of Thrones) Has One-Star Reviews

Hey there!

(NOTE: Registration is now open for the ACX Masterclass, and we’re paying the first $300 of your tuition if you click here to register before Tuesday night at 9p.)

I share a thought starter every month with my students and clients in our Pro Connect Live sessions, and the classic one shared this month had a current application.

It’s the title of this blog post and video (but the GoT reference was a recent development – and don’t worry, there are no spoilers in this post or video, just in case you’re the last person on Earth who hasn’t yet seen the final season of Game of Thrones).

When the New York Times, the ranking authoritative journalism leader in the US, says in a review that your product is crap…how do you argue with that?

Very easily, it turns out. And you do so in a very healthy and simple way.

How To Stop Jealousy From Killing Your Progress

Hey there!

I’ve read a bunch of articles recently that kind of circle the drain that is self-sabotage and how performers can engage in that almost constantly.

One, written by Eddie Ramos in Backstage, captured the problem (and offered a simple solution) perfectly.

What Is The Overton Window?

Hey there!

We live in an age of stark political and social division, nearly instantaneous conflict on social media, and polarizing issues that are hard to find rational discussion.

Whew! And you wonder why some people don’t even want to crack a browser and see what’s going on in the world.

I may have a partial explanation as to why things are so raw these days: we may be spending too much time in the extreme edges of the Overton Window.

Let me explain.

Age Range Isn’t Really A Valid Metric For VO

Hey there!

I went to a meetup a few days ago, and had a conversation with one of the attendees there that started with her question:

“What do you think my age range is?”

And I told her what I thought. No numbers or ranges were involved. Here’s why.
