Is there Money in your Mouth
If you are complimented on a nice voice, and have been told to do something professionally, you most likely didn't know where to start. National Voiceover Actor Mike Weiner gives you a roadmap to follow in "Is There Money In Your Mouth", now available at http://www.xlibris.com/weiner

(PRWEB) December 21, 2004 -- When Mike Weiner began a broadcasting career in 1971, he had no idea it would lead to a successful career as a voiceover actor for radio, television and video productions. As his career started to move, strangers would call asking for advice on breaking in to the voice-over industry. As a result of these calls, Weiner put together a two day intensive workshop to help people find out if they really had some talent, and if so, how to take the steps to break into the market.

"Is There Money In Your Mouth?" is the result of condensing Weiner's workshop and putting the salient pieces into a book that will allow the reader to help self-discover if there is potential, and gives some directions to follow to prepare a demo tape.

"There are many people who are complimented on their voices each day, but it becomes frustrating when they are told to do something with their nice voice," Weiner explained. "Lots of people have excellent instruments, but it's learning how to play the vocal instrument like a pro that gets in the way. Before anyone starts working in this field, they need to know if they can act, are they willing to learn to play their instrument, and do they have the inner desire to build themselves to the level of a performer to earn the top dollars and top jobs.", he added. The book is a self help starting point.

"Is There Money In Your Mouth?" is available at www.xlibris.com/weiner.
