The Voice Over Athlete: Because a Healthy Body Means a Healthy Voice™Mike_Muscles

I’ve started a new blog “The Voice Over Athlete” with the idea that we need to take care of our bodies like athletes do because we use our bodies to perform. A healthy body means a healthy voice.

Please check out the videos and other writings I’ve started posting at the blog by clicking here. Please also feel free to leave feedback and suggestions for topics you’d like me to cover.

Thank You!

The DeFlame Diet.

So I have a great book I want to recommend to you. It’s called “The Deflame Diet: DeFlame your diet, body, and mind” by Dr. David Seaman.

This book is great. I’ve been eating this way for awhile now. If you’re a Voice Talent who has to clear their throat a lot throughout the day, maybe have some post-nasal drip, or are feeling sluggish and run down – you want to check this book out. The link above is an affiliate link through Amazon.com. If you want to see how I’m tracking my daily intake and activities, you can check out my Tracking Log Here. If you want to know why it’s important to track this stuff, you should read my post on the Importance of Daily Tracking here.

It was given to me by my trainer Mandla Nkosi. The book explains through scientific research that most chronic diseases like heart disease, high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and a host of others are all caused by eating an “Inflammatory diet.” An inflammatory diet is one that promotes chronic inflammation throughout the body that over time leads to these diseases.

Sources of inflammation are refined sugars and grains – pretty much a good portion of the “Western” diet. The book explains how inflammation gets started and how it affects every cell in our body. It also explains how to “DeFlame” and live a healthier lifestyle. It’s not as crazy and hard to do as you may think. You just need to look out for a few key ingredients and eat whole, unprocessed foods.

Have you modified your eating plan to help your voice? Please share your thoughts with us below!

Episode 42: Why Voice Over People Are Special

This Episode Is A Pep-Talk For YOU!

I spend some time in this episode encouraging you to keep working on your dream of voice John_and_MIKE_2-13-14acting and voice over.

Voice Over People are special because we all started doing it because we had or have the dream of using our voices in some form of media. It’s not a common career. If you’re in VO or starting a VO Career you’re working on your goals and dreams.

Many people go through life wishing and dreaming and never doing and end their lives with that regret.

We’re at least working on the VO dream and we should take pride in wherever we are in our journey. We’re in the game. We’re playing. We’re living our dreams.

Never ever give up on it. Keep going. You’ll make it.

Hey It’s Been Awhile

It’s been a rough year for me so far this year. I’ve had to take some time away from the podcast to help my family with some “Stuff” that’s been going on.

It’s given me some time to reflect on what I’ve accomplished and other things I still want to do.

It’s also reinforced the knowledge that we can’t take life for granted and that if we have goals and dreams – then there’s no “Perfect” time to start working on them. “Now” is the perfect time.

I guess someone many years ago summed it up with the phrase “There’s no time like the present.”

Some Inspiring Music

Here Are A Couple of Links to some RUSH tunes that encourage people to go after their goals and dreams:

“Mission” and “Losing It”

Great tunes. Enjoy.

Episode 40: How To Entertain – An Interview With Gallagher the Comedian

Gallagher_2

Gallagher in the Studio with John Melley

So, awhile back I had the opportunity to interview one of my favorite childhood comedians, Gallagher.

Sure, his “Sledge-O-Matic” routine was sure to appeal to a 12 year old boy, but it appeals to adults too.

One bit I remembered was his observations on the inconsistencies of the English language. I marveled at his ability to string them into a story that made you laugh.

Prior to my interview he asked me to record a series of poems he had written. To watch him perform them was a real treat. To record them, an honor. To follow their meaning was an opportunity to appreciate the work of an amazingly clever and creative person.

I share one at the end of this episode.

Some of the thoughts he shares are controversial, but hey, all comedy is at some level and he has strong opinions.

Listen for his thoughts on How to entertain, practice and prepare. Listen to his strategic decisions. Learn why he makes the decisions he does and how/why he chooses a “Stress Free” life.

Lots of gems in this one. Enjoy!

Episode 39: How Common Courtesy Can Grow Your Business (Or Kill It)

How Important Is Courtesy To Your Business?John_and_MIKE_2-13-14

In this episode I make the case for Common Courtesy in our daily lives and how that carries over to our voice over businesses.

I also reveal a dream I had.

I was in a rut. I was getting tired of how I was sounding in copy. It was sounding too formulaic for me and I needed to do something different. The message my subconscious mind sent screaming to me was: “What if you loved your listeners”?

Wow.

Listen in as I explore these topics with real life stories about how courtesy and politeness (and the lack thereof) can impact your business!

Enjoy!

Episode 38: Will “Uber” Technology Kill Voice Over?

Click Here To Learn More About The Opportunity In This Episode

This Episode is all about how technology has impacted our economy

John_and_MIKE_2-13-14

John Melley and MIKE! In The Studio

– and different sectors of the economy in ways we never could have imagined before.

A cab driver recently told me his revenue is down 80% due to Uber (!) Do you think Cabbies ever expected the internet to impact their income like this?

“Traditional” BIG Companies Are Impacted Too!

Bic Pens is waging “Fight for your Write” letting us know that Penmanship leads to improved creativity, better reading comprehension and retention of information.

Experts on the Bic web site bicfightforyourwrite.com discuss studies about how handwriting is linked to better learning. How writing and learning are wired together in the brain and how kids who aren’t writing – literally have brains that are “wired” differently than most of the people who listen to this podcast who grew up going to school learning penmanship!

Why do you think Bic got involved? They’re not selling pens like they used to.

Even Retailers on the Cutting Edge of Technology Gadgets…

Staples is seeing a drop in sales in notepads and other things people used to write on. I just got an email from Staples today letting me know they offer Small Business Loans.

They’re looking for other sources of revenue. Why? Technology is impacting sectors of the economy in ways that we never considered.

Can this happen to Voice Over?

I believe it can.

In this episode I discuss why and how I believe we can be replaced…

And I offer an alternative to offset that possibility through the creation of our own products and services that we market and sell.

I Offer YOU an Opportunity to Watch As I Create a Product…

Episode_37: Living A Life Of Purpose On YOUR Terms

My Interview With Zephan Blaxberg…

Zephan_2

Zephan Blaxberg

Was a lot of fun. I’ve know Zephan for a few years now. He would edit my voice over tracks into countless videos he produced for a marketing company. Zephan went on to start his own video production company ZMBMedia and has achieved great success in a short amount of time.

He’s gone on to start his own podcast (Links below) and done a lot of self exploration to live his life on his terms and with a greater sense of purpose.

We discuss how and why he’s done that in our interview. Enjoy.

John
