Whether it''s your supervisees, coworkers, a friend, your kid, grandkid, romantic partner, or a sports team, we all coach. Alas, too often, we fail to help the other person as much as we'd like.

Many people think of voiceover as an easy, cool career. But how realistic is it that one can make a living at it--or even enough to pay back the cost of the training and demo?

On Sunday, Feb. 19, I'll ask such questions of Elaine Clark, author of the just-published third edition of There's Money Where Your Mouth Is: A Complete Insider's Guide to Earning Income and Building a Career in Voice-Overs.

That's on Work with Marty Nemko, Sundays from 11 am to noon, here on KALW, 91.7 FM.
