GKN Weekly Update 11/9/09

Good morning to you on this surprisingly warm Monday! It will probably be the last one for a while so enjoy it...

As many of you know, I HATE cold calls! So I came up with a way to make it more fun. This is the game I've been playing: my goal is to have a Golden Client in every state. When I say "Golden Client" I mean a company who likes my voiceover demo and will keep it on file to be considered for future projects (thanks to Dan Duckworth of Voiceovers Unlimited calls for coining that phrase!). So far I'm up to 44! Here are the remaining six states:

South Carolina
West Virginia

I'll let you know when I hit 50!

TIP OF THE WEEK: Many things we do in our jobs/careers are categorized as "necessary evils". Some of them are small & annoying, others can turn into phobias or even make you quit your job. Remember: you can't control the world, you can only control your reaction to the world. With that in mind, try to come up with ways to make those "necessary evils" feel a bit less evil. Make a game out of it or turn it into a competition with yourself or a co-worker.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK: When things go wrong, don’t go with them. Elvis Presley

DISCUSS!: What can you do to make your job more enjoyable? How can you make it fun for yourself?

Have a great week!

Don't forget to call the provinces in Canada!
Following up on your quote, we have an annual summer Elvis festival nearby in Penticton, British Columbia. The 9th annual 2010 Elvis Festival is
June 25 - 27 of next year. You should sign you up Tom. I bet you went as Elvis on Halloween:)
