While more sensible people are tending outdoor gardens, I’m doing some “weeding” of a different kind.
An off day with no paying work (and too much physical work around the studio, which I tend to avoid) brought me to notice how many emails are still on my computer. Probably slowing it down considerably.
So, the morning’s been spent going through old emails, discarding most, saving a few for information, and along the way…discovering potential clients I had done lone auditions for, or received contact from only to never hear from again. In checking for some of them on the internet today, I found some are no longer in business, some are right where they were, and some have expanded their business and have newer contact persons. So I’m “harvesting” what I can and clearing out the rest.
Who knows? It might eventually provide some voice work later, when I add these to my list of promotional contacts.
I’ll have to be careful about working too hard, though. I was concentrating so much on the “weeding” I almost missed a call from a current client for a last-minute ISDN job.
…can’t let “work” get in the way of “Work”, can we?
