Ladies and gentlemen, START YOUR ENGINES!! FaffCon5 is less than two weeks away. For me, as it has been the previous three FaffCons (I’ve only missed the very first one), it couldn’t have come at a better time. Since Charlotte, NC is only about an hour and a half from Asheville, it also couldn’t be in a better place.
Over the last couple of years, my career has taken many twists and turns. Like everyone in this industry, I also travel the highways and confront the crossroads that are associated with a voiceover career. Marketing, branding, improving my skills, balancing work and family, setting goals, getting word out about my book, and managing my very unique needs, is at times… exhausting. Thanks to FaffCons 2, 3and4 and the people who’ve made them happen (that is you, the participants, by the way) I’ve discovered new paths, navigated around obstacles, achieved new goals and have been driven to keep moving forward. All of this, plus continuing to make amazing new friendships, is why FaffCon is a vital part of my career, as well as my life.
While FaffCon has become important to my career, what has been even more rewarding, is the satisfaction I’ve received from helping others along their path. From providing new opportunities, to offering technical assistance, it is deeply gratifying to know that I have been a part of the pit crew that has helped other voice talent be in the driver seat and keep their careers on track.
You simply can not get this level of peer-to-peer career assistance or motivation at any other event. Furthermore, you will not find a group of people who are more passionate about their careers, or the voiceover industry in general, than you will at FaffCon. Whether some part of your career needs refueling, or you are looking for new ways to keep racing forward, a weekend at FaffCon is a must stop for every working professional in the world of voiceover.
Look for me while you are at FaffCon5. Let me know how I can help you. I believe that sharing in the success of others, is a great way to make it into the winner’s circle.
