With 5,000 people moving here each month, somebody had to spill the beans!

Just as everybody in Los Angeles wants to be an actor, it appears that everybody building our secret project wants to be a Vegas entertainer. We’ve already seen Wade’s dancing skills, so now it’s up to Rip and me to audition as well.

For my part, I butcher about three seconds of a BeeGee’s classic. Rip’s death-defying performance is much more impressive. In both cases, I’d suggest you not try this at home.

It’s been ten days since our last video, which demonstrates how busy we’ve been! It’s hard to shoot video when you’re a Builder Bob apprentice! And speaking of Builder Bob, let’s meet Rip Rippetoe, as he explains what we’ve still got to do.

Here is the latest video from our studio building project, which is happening just off the Las Vegas Strip.

In today’s video, we learn how to set off a fire alarm without starting a fire and see first hand that I have lost all track of time.

On November 23, 1998 I jumped into the entrepreneurial waters.  Since then, I’ve started three successful businesses (website design, branded music CDs and Internet broadcasting).  For each of those businesses, I’ve been fortunately enough to have, on average, about a 10 foot commute to work. 

That is, until about ten days ago.

For some time now, I’ve been working on a concept for a new type of offering from PodWorx.  It’s an idea that I’m very excited about and one where the technology has caught up with the vision.  It’s never been attempted here in Las Vegas and based on the feedback I’ve received from a group of very smart folks who’ve been briefed (after signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement), there’s a lot to be excited about.

To create the environment necessary for this new concept, I have to expand beyond my existing work environment.  As a result, I have found myself in the land of commercial real estate.  After a relatively-short search, I was connected with a great guy/landlord and a great space from which to launch this project. 

After securing a small amount of funds from outside sources, on August 2nd, 2010, I accepted the keys to my first commercial property!  A wave of excitement, fear, anticipation and the unknown washed over me.  I’m not a Builder-Bob kind of guy, so I was nervous.  Luckily, I have two GREAT friends (Rip and Wade) who are helping me build what I believe will be one of the coolest video studios in town.   

The video above is the first of several I’ll be recording during the building process.  We’re still in stealth mode but I wanted to share the process as best I can. Ten days into the project, I’ve learned a lot, spend a great deal of time at Home Depot and Ahern Rental, and feel as if my credit card is beginning to melt.

Stay tuned. . .

PodWorxLiveStudioCam Isn’t kind of fun to take a peek behind the curtain and see how stuff works?  I think so as well!  To that end, we’ve added the PodWorx Live Studio Cam page to our website.

From time to time (like as I type this), we’ll fire up the live camera so you can get an over-the-shoulder look into what’s happening in the PodWorx studios here in Las Vegas.

You might see me conducting a pre-interview with a upcoming guest.  Or be able to watch a podcast being recorded live.  Or see some post-production work being performed.  Or prepping to release a new customer podcast episode.  Regardless, you’ll see a working studio in action!

Scott Whitney and Dave Courvoisier Just wrapped up a fun meeting with Dave Courvoisier, one of the anchors for the local CBS affiliate here in Las Vegas.

I met Dave through my Twitter wandering and was immediately impressed with how nice and down-to-earth he is.  Besides anchoring the news (for which he has won an Emmy), Dave also runs a voice-over business that is growing quite nicely.  A visit to his website will demonstrate what a talented VO artist he is.  (I’ve always been impressed with folks who can deliver audio voice overs with a variety of styles.  On his website home page, there are four impressive examples.)

If you’d like to learn more about what Dave does, follow him on Twitter.
