I am a tv and radio broadcast veteran (using the air name Chris Wright) making the transition to VO. I am eager to learn and make new contacts.

My broadcast training has given me the ability to help clients write their copy and deliver a fully produced product that is properly targeted and professional. At this point my largest volume of VO work comes from self published authors creating audio books. I enjoy this work but would like to build a good balance and variety with audio books, commercials, voice acting, video narration and more.

Talk to me about increasing bookings!
I would like ideas how to engage prospective guests, and encourage booking without being too aggressive.
How do others screen guests. Do guests expect to be screened?
How do others manage multiple accounts with multiple emails?

We own four vacation rental single family homes in Pensacola, Florida. Our first one was June 2012. One of a our houses was sued by the Escambia County commission to cease and decide operating.

I started this business for fun in 2012 with my family properties.
In 2014 my husband passed away and it became a real job as I had the financial responsibility of three children who were still studying.
It is growing year after year and I am thinking to add the management of some properties which I do not own myself.
I love restructuring, then redecoration, then putting everything in place to welcome my lovely guests. Nothing makes me more happy then seeing big smiles on their faces!
