Though this particular season symbolizes a more gradual pace of life blended with leisure activities it also brings its own special benefits and challenges to those who are self-employed.

How will you be spending your summer?

Fact: Voice over work happens all year round, even in the summer!

Some of you may be adjusting to the kids being home from school and need to reallocate your time accordingly for doing work.

Others may find that instead of having more responsibilities the summer months provide time for rest and relaxation with the opportunity to refocus and develop a strategy to streamline business processes for the busy fall and winter ahead.

Most importantly, summer gives us all an opportunity to regroup, reevaluate and take it easy. Consider giving yourself the gift of a balanced home and work life... your family will thank you for it!

Do you have any objectives you want to achieve over July and August?

I'd love to hear more about what you've been working on as well as how you plan to spend the summer months.

    I'm in SW Florida.... Not much V.O. work here. We are somewhat insulated from the real world. Looking for V.O. gigs. I have my own recording-editing equipment. Use ftp site or Sharecow to transmit files. Do you know of opportunities to work? Any suggestions?

      Hi Stephanie & all.

      My summer goal is to make a demo disc and get it to the correct people.

      I have been watching the monthly newsletter of Mark Graue Studios in Burbank, CA (home to me) and thought of approaching them for assistance. Unless of course anyone has a better suggestion for a relatively newbie.

      Thanks and Blessings,

      Lou Young
