I sit down with Rachel Alena - voiceover talent, talent agent and voice acting coach, to discuss her path from singing and stage acting to becoming a voiceover talent and coach. I connected with Rachel after searching for a voice coach in an effort to improve my voice for podcasting, improv acting and public speaking, and she is now my voice coach. I have since learned how skillful a professional voice actor is, how unbelievable hard the job is - especially around tone, emotion, character, timing. Be sure to listen at the end when Rachel reads a script normally and then reads it dark and edgy. The nuance in her voice is amazing. #podcast #voiceactor #publicspeaking

In this conversation with JK Sparks, we talk about the seismic shift in marketing that happened on June 24, 2009.
This is when consumers - private individuals - started marketing and making more noise and content than brands.
We cover sales / marketing alignment, Ideal Customer Profiles, contextual marketing, how company culture affects marketing, Tyler Sparks and his speedreading, and how sales and marketing professionals are some of the least trusted people, but at least the 2 of us are not bad guys.
The context marketing revolution
let's get real or let's not play
On Saturday, May 2, 2020, Quinn Brett and Joshua Stevens will be taking part in the Red Bull Wings For Life global event - but with a twist.
For 24 hours straight, starting at 9am MDT, Joshua will be running and Quinn will be handcycling around Lake Estes here in Colorado.
Dr. Kendra Ryan from Estes Park Yoga is serving as their team support captain. You can follow their progress and donate if you are so compelled here.
I would suggest reading this articles before for context and backstory.
Quinn was paralyzed in a climbing accident in 2017, and Joshua suffered spinal cord injuries from combat.
We talk about their mission for this event, their recovery from both injuries and substance abuse, depression, people that have stayed and left their new lives, just being sad today, and the very difficult task of looking forward and accepting.
I'm also amazed that had Joshua's car not broken down on 36, and my friend Viktor not stopped to help, this episode wouldn't have happened.
