The flight from Manchester to Agadar with TUI Airways was the worst experience I had ever had. The Moroccan guy sitting behind me was acting like an antisocial asshole. He was loud when chatting with his friends and he put his arms on the back of my seat like a monkey wanting to play the drums. At some point, I made him aware that his movements affect my chair. He was totally not aware of - ignorant asshole. After, he behaved. So, I’m guessing that he was ashamed. And he should.
After a sleepless night before the flight (Berlin-Manchester-Agadir) I had an okay flight with Ryanair to Manchester where I chatted with a guy from Manchester („Manchesterian“). We talked about learning, business, life and the courage to start his own business. If you’ll hear about a Jody and a burger called „Manchester - The Honest Burger“ it’s likely that I something to do with it ;)
I also plan to start coding more on studiolist.io, like the user registration system or something as simple as a DIY contact form so I avoid getting spam emails by showing my plain email address on the website.
Regarding the packing I had to make some tough choices:
1. Only one book (I picked Amber Rae’s “Choose Wonder Over Worry”)
2. Only my iPhone, no DSLR or compact camera.
All that because of space and wanting to travel lean. Also
The last days didn’t feel super productive, of course because of the conference and all. So, I hope my time in Morocco 🇲🇦 will be a bit calmer with more work done.
I’m bringing my full voiceover equipment with me (it’s inside the 7.5kg bag) to continue working on my demo reel and maybe get some online auditions.

Next flight today is with Ryanair via Manchester and from there via TUI Airways to Agadir. Ryanair says only a small bag with 5kg is allowed for the cabin, mine is 7.5kg, we’ll see ;)
I prefer to destroying a connection myself so I can blame myself rather than letting someone else talk and destroy the bridge.
Later I was early at Miami Airport, so I waltzed around and observed people - one of my favorite activities.
Then the flight back to Berlin happened with SWISS - only 8h40m from Miami to Zürich with nice 1k speed. I’m pleased with the service SWISS has offered in the both flights to and from Miami.
At the first one, a communication distaster happened. In the second one I got the email from the reception lady Tatiana. At least I got a name. I’ll work on my pitch to make clear that studiolist.io is 💯 beneficial for recording studios.
It was a good communication lesson though. I learned:
A) I don’t need someone else to introduce me to people that he also doesn’t know.
B) If I can be in charge pitching my venture I get in charge and let nobody else talk.

It was the last day in Miami, well basically half a day. Though Carlos, our host, was so kind to give me a ride I only managed to say hello at two studios.
Day job was also part of the day but I’ll stop mentioning it because it’s a daily duty I’m doing.
I’ve been eating ok/well but my daily walking has been not so good. I want to do more fitness the next days to not get fat.
Miami felt like home because I was surrounded by warm and welcoming people, and a great host here in Little Havana. Gracias, Carlos ❤️
Day 4/120 RAW Update - English and Deutsch - of #startupdiarystudiolist.
It’s the last night here in Miami which is a bit sad but I’m glad that I had some awesome roommates here.
Yesterday, I also really enjoyed the company of the seanwes community members.
Today I took the time to review the studios I had collected so far, sent emails and got an overview of the sheer amount of studios that are here in Miami. It’s a hotspot of recording studios, 100+ studios. Awesome!
Day 3/120 RAW Update - English and Deutsch - of #startupdiarystudiolist with the last day of the 10X Gowth Conference 2019 here in Miami. Mr. Grant Cardone made his best speech and sold me on Cardone University (with a little help/nudge from a friend Sean McCabe / seanwes). A short conference day but an extensive amount of community interaction so that the 10x mindset stays strong. Take action - move your arse.
Außerdem wird es ab 1. Februar wieder RAW. Ich werde 4 Monate lang dokumentieren, wie mein Startup studiolist.io verläuft, nicht läuft oder vielleicht sogar erfolgreich wird. Jeden Tag ein Video. Eines am Morgen mit dem Tagesplan und ein anderes spät in der Nacht, wo du sehen wirst, wie es lief.
Ach so. Das bedeutet, meine Shows „Eine Minute Stoizismus“ und „stolenvoice tv“ werden pausieren ⏸.
Stattdessen bin ich auf Reisen 🧳 in den USA, England, Südeuropa und Nordafrika, um auch dort Aufnahmestudios für studiolist.io zu sammeln sowie Freunde und Fremde 🤠 zu treffen.
Erwartete Fortsetzung 🏠 der Show: Samstag, 01. Juni 2019
Hi, hier ist Alex von stolenvoice. Ich bin gerade in Miami, Florida, um Aufnahmestudios für studiolist.io zu sammeln und an einer Business-Konferenz namens 10X Growth Conference teilzunehmen. Es ist eine ziemlich große Sache. Ich plane auch, ein paar Freunde zu treffen und Sonne abzubekommen, die ich seit Wochen vermisst habe. Endlich! Ich werde am 6. Februar 2019 zurück sein, um meine Reise woanders fortzusetzen. Pass auf dich auf, Alex.
I’m validating a startup ☝️ within 4 months while traveling & working (day job, voiceover). No market validation until Jun 1 means the ☝️ startup dies.
