A common request we receive at Voice123 is to “make voice seekers use the ranking system”, or “suggest they use it”. Well…we always have for many years. 🙂 For me, as a voice talent who once used the website, one of the most powerful experiences I had was using Voice123 to hire voice talent for […]

Last week, I was watching David Letterman before going to sleep, while I held my android reading Facebook posts from bed.  I look at Voice123 emails too. 😀 The guest that night was Ray Romano, and he stated something that connected with me at the exact same time I read Facebook, “I feel like social […]
