One Head. Many Hats!

When we’re not caught-up in working our magic behind the mic;

We’re listening -

We're learning -

We’re editing -

We’re sending -

We’re networking -

We're marketing -

We're calling -

We’re reading -

We’re blogging -

We’re researching -

We’re writing -

We’re google+ing -

We’re tweeting -

We're linking in -

We’re conferencing -

We’re exhausted, but it feels good!

Did I miss a 'hat'?

I value you + your views, so let's communicate!

Happily Giving Thanks!

It’s one of the easiest things to bow our heads and do.

Giving thanks should be like breathing for me and for you.

Our abundance is something to be continually grateful for.

We’re here, we’re alive, and we’re loved, if nothing more.

D. A. Barnes

Join me in happily giving thanks for ‘our daily bread’ and each other!

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34

Intoxicating Scents

The nose knows.

(Well mine certainly does!)

And after breathing-in the intoxicating scents of Upstate New York in the Fall,

I was reminded of how sentimental I get at this time of year.

Autumn is magic. It's my favourite season.

It's colourful, it's fragrant, it's nostalgic and it has an uncanny effect on me.

From falling-leaves, pumpkins and apple cider to pine trees, maple syrup and log fires;

I found myself sighing gratefully from one day to the next.

And when I walked the trails of Beaver Lake's enchanted forest... senses were exploding and I was giving thanks.

I was also whispering a Rah-Rah! and writing another Sunday SideLines just for you.

What kinds of scents move you?

Fully Enhanced!

No. I don’t mean the kind of enhancement most of us visualize. (Or is this just me?)

I’m thinking in terms of modern technology.

When we take advantage of the educational information at our fingertips;

we can be –

…and strengthened.

We can get the personal + professional boost we need, when we need it.

And the good news?

Most of what we need is free.

So here’s to fully enhancing ourselves!

Though there are many ways to enhance yourself, my fav is:

I value you and what you have to say, so let's communicate!

Just imagine it.

I dare you!

So where will you imagine, create + inspire this week?

Impress & Keep-On Impressing

I knew it was only a matter of time. I’ve been reading his trusty blogs for awhile now and I honestly couldn’t wait to spotlight him. He’s Constantino De Miguel, and he well deserves the light! (…and a Debby Barnes Voice-Over Rah-Rah!, ofcourse.)

"This talented, impressive, multi-lingual guy is a broadcast professional with over 25 years experience in radio and television. He’s worked for international media in the Netherlands (RNWO); Spain (SER Radio); France (Euronews TV); and the US (LInkTV). He is currently a foreign news correspondent for CCTV News (China) covering current affairs from France and Spain." And there's more!

"Trilingual English, Spanish and French, Constantino is also a Voice Talent and co-owner of a multimedia studio based in Lyon, France. Constantino is an active media trainer. He has coached executives and CEOs from Fortune 500 companies in how to handle radio and TV interviews." Like WOW.

Though I’m quite spoiled for choice where his blogs are concerned, his: ‘Impressing Your Voice-Over Clients’ post resonated with me, as I’m sure it will resonate with any and every VO business owner.

The seven points he aptly makes are choice. It’s actually difficult to choose one over the other because they’re all equally important. He mentions: “Show interest – Showing interest in your client’s business and what they are trying to achieve through using voice over. This will demonstrate your commitment to the task and will help you to build a relationship with them.” IMHO, this is huge, because caring about them and their business is key. Never underestimate CARING.

At the end of the day, it’s all about giving the utmost for our clients highest good. And staying mindful of this kind of service is vital because when our clients are happy, we’re happy!

So happy Rah-Rah’s!, Constantino. And thank you for your impressive words of wisdom.
