But, I'd be looking forward to it if it were being held in a dungeon on Mars! I had a profound professional breakthrough at FaffCon1. And while I'm still working through the goals I set there, and the Faffterglow hasn't worn off yet, I know I'll be ready for a booster shot in February.
Usually my New Year's resolutions have already been set, and have fallen apart, by the time February 25th rolls around. So, I'm implementing a new personal strategy: I'm breaking up my business planning and goal setting into chunks from FaffCon to FaffCon.
The Topic Sessions and conversations with other participants will help me with accountability and mid-course correction. Then, at FaffCon2's close, I can review and set goals for the period before the next FaffCon.
I'm thinking ahead on decisions I can make to support this strategy. For one thing, I'm definitely going to stay over through Sunday night so I can hang out with folks one last evening and squeeze every last bit of juicy goodness from the experience. And I'm going to fly out a little later-- I don't want to have to rush to the airport on Monday. I'm going to try to steal a little time with my notes and thoughts before I'm immersed in my bustling daily life again.
What do you think? What's your plan?

This really fun video promoting FaffCon, the first and only unconference for voiceover professionals, was conceived of, written, produced, and hosted by media genius Peter K. O'Connell of audioconnell.com with an all-star cast of steller VO pros (in order of appearance): Philip Banks, Mandy Nelson, Todd Ellis, Bruce Miles, Pam Tierney, Dave Courvoisier, Roger Tremaine, and Bob Souer.
I hope you can come hang out with us September 11-12 in Portland, OR (at the lovely all-suite Hyatt Place PDX). Registration is still open-- just $175 for two full days of awesomeness--10 breakout periods with about 5 topic sessions to choose from each period. Plus lunch and snacks both days!

I'll share more about the whats, hows, and whys of FaffCon in another post. Today I just want to celebrate the fact that the FaffCon vision is contagious and that so many smart, cool people want to be a part of making it happen. Registration has been open for just one week and we already have RSVP's from 19 solid VO pros! I'm pretty excited!
Happy 4th, everybody! Have a fun and safe weekend!

I'm the voice in this fun spoof infomercial from the sketch comedy troop Totally Sketch. Click screenshot to check it out! I think the on-screen performers, Richard Ryan and Andrea Rene did a terrific job. Spot-on writing and directing by Michael Gallagher. Hilarious!
