                                                                              Sounds like a great giveaway. I'd love to throw my hat in the ring for it.

                                                                              Hope all's well with you,

I was wondering what producers feel about receiving promotional items along with demos. Does anyone have any insight? I'd love to win the course as well! Thanks so much...

                                                                                                        Well, it goes without saying that I would really like to win this giveaway, so I won't say it. But I will say this...I am finally starting to realize how important constant training and practice are. Between this site and several others the one constant I hear from the voice pros and coaches is keep training. It's so easy to think you've arrived and make your demo early, and start auditioning for everything you can, but that is not the smart way to go about it. Thank you for all your site provides.

                                                                                                        Mike Achen

The winner had to go to a radio station and do a commercial for the company. The people at the station really liked my voice. " You should do copy work" they said and I wanted to yell " I WANT TO BUT CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW!!!" So, this is why I would love this prize.

I have decided to try to see if it is possible for me to enter the field of Voice Over. I came across voices.com while doing a Google search.

                                                                                                                                        I find your messages informative and they have helped me to stay motivated. They are the positive messages I need to counteract all the negative ones I receive when I tell my family and friends about my goal.

                                                                                                                                        I would like to thank you for your help and can’t wait to let you know when I get my first Voice Over job
