I just wanted to say thank you to all of those on this board who have helped me on my journey. I first posted in Oct 2016 in the critique section. The feedback I got was honest and essential to my growth. I took Philip's advice and had a few Skype sessions with him and then coached with Nancy Wolfson for the last two years.
More importantly, I listened. And I listened to everyone saying that this is a marathon not a sprint. I learned to respect those who are successful in this and started to understand they have the best intentions.
I don't post much here as those with more experience have much better advice to share. But I still come regularly to keep me grounded.
I am now going into my 5th year and really starting to make a success of this. I even waited until last year to have my first professional commercial demo made by Nancy and her engineer. Here is the link if you have the time to listen:

But most of all, I just wanted to say thank you all, once again. You really changed the trajectory of where I was heading.

Was that five years ago? Crap... I feel old.
I always say that it you can actually do this VO thing... it's still going to take you five years to get a strong foothold in the business. I know how important this place both was (and is) to me. Grounded is a good word.
Well done.

My anchor point was always when I went into Manhattan for a gig. I used to get the train... and as we approached the city we went through some railroad marshaling yards. Loads of guys in hard-hats and orange tabards out in the snow or rain doing things that railroad track workers do. That sight always grounded me and made me grateful.

Iím so glad you found support you needed here. Once again, mission accomplished.

Very nice demo too!
