For this years, VO Atlanta, I hosted two breakout sessions. The first was titled, “2021 Commercial Trends.” The second one was “What 4 Years of Not Booking Taught Me About Resilience.” I thought I’d share some of the insights about Commercial Trends.
The start of 2021 was great because I booked a Home Depot host job through the People Store (my on-camera agent). Being an on-camera host/actor for over a decade in Atlanta, I’ve never booked a Home Depot job (on-camera wise) until now. Despite living across the street from

One of the major industries affected by COVID is the live event industry. But thanks to technology…live events can still take place. And Atlanta North Studios has the technology to do just that! Which is why Todd Duncan, who hosts Sales Mastery,

Who knew when Jonathan Tilley (personal brand strategist) asked me to join him on his podcast to talk about creating a great home office space a year ago that it’d be released during COVID19?! So many people are now working from home, which has its ups and downs. One of

I LOVE, LOVE Christmas! It’s my favorite holiday ever – the decorations, the smells, the lights, the parties. But I will be the first to admit that I can quickly get caught up and end up in tears because I’m stressed out. I put way too much pressure on
Do you have that thing? That skill you want to learn? Place you want to visit? Service project you want to work on? Person you want to give to? Your heart feels it, but life just gets in the way. Work and other responsibilities take priority and it keeps
