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”?


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