I Wish I Was Bi (Part One)

For religious reasons I only speak English, although those who have heard me speak it say that my oratory is pretty much the pinnacle of the language as an art form.  While I know this to be true, I still can’t help but feel that I am missing out on something being limited to just one tongue.1 Besides the obvious coolness and perceived worldliness that goes along with being bilingual, if you are fluent enough you can double your market.  The insanely talented VTP talent Liz de Nesnera basically tripled hers.  Check this out: Liz speaks both English and French BUT she speaks Continental French as well as French Canadian so she has clients from just about everywhere falling all over themselves to get her in the booth for them.

So on any given day she can get a phone call from an American company looking to book an IVR talent, some Canuck might get off his moose and hire her for a beer commercial and later some cheese eating surrender monkey might email from France asking her to do a corporate spot for his white flag factory.  She makes a mint this way.  How cool is that?

Jealous?  Of course you are, although Liz can kick an ass or two so she totally deserves everything she gets.  Check her out:

So, do you want a whole lot more work?  Just go out, learn an entirely new language and voilà!

  1. Awwww…Thanks Erik!…and as we “speak” I’m about to go into the studio and record some Legalese!…does that make me “Quadraphonic?”

    (Yes I KNOW it’s 9:20pm on a Friday, but I am committed!….in BOTH senses of the word)

    Thanks for ALL your support! :-*

    Peace!

    Liz
