                I loved Rodneys first book. He is an excellent resource and outstanding artist. More motivation from him would be amazing.

                Thanks for the opportunity,

                  I love Rodney - he voiced a few characters for a video game I designed (CSI: Hard Evidence.) He was one of our favorite voices to listen to. Actually, he was one of the people who inspired me to pursue voice acting! Such a pro... I'd love to win a CD! Go Rodney, go!!!

                    Greetings, Stephanie!
                    What I need this year is....inspiration. Inspiration to be a better v.o. artist, to push myself to explore more options for work, to look in unlikely places and get myself out of my comfort zone. It sounds like Rodney's CD is a great place to start. Here's to a wildly successful 2009!

                          Hi Stephanie!
                          Happy New Year! I'd love to win this wonderful giveaway. I am actively attracting a "Better than Before - Best Year of My Life" life, so this would be perfect for me as a birthday gift, as I am celebrating my "I'm not 50 Birthday."

                          In addition to wishing that I win, I'd like to share these New Year wishes with you:

                          My Wish for You in 2009-

                          May peace break into your house
                          and may thieves come to steal your debts.
                          May the pockets of your jeans become
                          a magnet for money.
                          May love stick to your face like Vaseline
                          and may laughter assault your lips!
                          May your clothes smell of success
                          like smoking tires.
                          May happiness slap you across the face
                          and may your tears be that of joy.
                          May the problems you had
                          forget your home address!

                          In simple words ...

                          May 2009 be the best year
                          of your life!!!

                                      Hey There! I enjoy reading and studying anything, especially from an artist who has been there and is making a success of his craft. It also helps to have a reference library of anything to do with the voice business, because as time goes on, we can't keep it all filed away. It's a good point to have reference materials for new and old artists alike. As Tony Robbins used to say, if you want to be happy, study happiness. If you want to be wealthy, study wealth etc. You get the idea. You must always be studying and learning your craft. I'm a big believer that no one "knows it all". Even if you do, you still don't "know it all". So voices.com. Keep those educational and learned people and points coming in. We all need them to learn and share as well. Onward and Upward

                                        I just wanted to comment on this, because I did win Rodney's book
                                        so I thought the CD would go perfectly with my book!

                                        All my best

                                                                Thanks for shooting out this great blog entry about the newest from VO great, Mr. Rodney Saulsberry. It IS, indeed, motivating to here from the top VO performers in the field and how they've made it to where they are today. And, that Mr. Saulsberry is quite willing and able to share motivational "tools," to help the rest of us get to the top, as well, is the proverbial icing on the cake.

                                                                Yes, by all means, PLEASE enter me in the drawing!

                                                                Just like Mr. Saulsberry, in addition to having a passion for voice-overs, I do my own singing on the side and--along with potential VO success--hope to parlay my love and talent for romantic standards (mostly Sinatra, Dean Martin, Perry Como, Tony Bennett, Pat Boone, Bing Crosby and the like) into more-than-just-decent wages and even more opportunities to get my big mouth (HA!) out there to a public who--at the moment--doesn't even know I exist.

                                                                Currently, I work in an office environment (I appreciate the full-time work, but loathe the work I do) where I serve out my sentence as sort of a "software analyst" (long story about that and time does not permit me in this context to touch on that in detail). But, through my own entertainment web site: www.lionsroarmedia.biz I anticipate getting even more work--whether or not the economy is down, up or somewhere in between--for my music than I did in 2008, and--recently hooking up, again, with VO giants like Bob Bergen (the voice of Porky Pig and other characters, too boot)--throwing myself into the VO industry through legitimate and helpful sites like Voices.com and my new digital multitrack recorder that Santa brought down our chimney for Christmas.

                                                                All the best to you and yours in 2009, and we'll see you at the top somewhere!

I read the article/post "If I Don't Believe in My Own Voice..." and am looking forward to finding Rodney's books. I can use any motivation or encouragement I can get,
                                                                      I haven't done any voiceover or radio work for some time but have been encouraged through the years to get back into it. I would love to be able to hear Rodney's musical work and motivational messages.
                                                                      Again, thanks for the resource and I look forward to being a regular.
