    Choicevoice Graydon Pease

    Graydon Pease has always been told he has a great voice and should put it to work.

    “I’ve had people my entire life say you have to do something with your voice, you’ve got this great voice,” he said.

    After doing a few promotional videos for local businesses and unable to continue in his job in sales, Pease decided at the age of 59 to strike out on his own and start Choicevoice.

    “I just kind of fell into it,” said Pease.

    Along with promotional videos, Pease also does voiceover work, MCing and event hosting.

    His main focus though is to provide affordable video to small businesses.

    Becoming an entrepreneur late in his working life has come with some challenges and adjustments for Pease.

    “It’s been an interesting transition to go from selling someone’s product to understanding that I’m the product,” he said.

    Fortunately for him he’s enjoyed the transition so far.

    He’s also found a business that he is passionate about and has fun working at.

    Pease has always been creative, singing and acting in Strathmore and recently with the Chestermere Public Library’s excerpts from Broadway musical performances.

    Since starting Choicevoice, he has been able to bring his creative side into his job.

    “To be able to utilize my talent to benefit other people trying to make a living in their businesses, is exciting to me,” said Pease.

    And, while starting up a new business is a lot of work, Pease is enjoying the flexibility to schedule work when he wants to.

    “There’s two sides to that coin,” said Pease.

    “You’re calling the shots, you can do whatever you want,” he said, “course the other side of that coin is if you don’t work there’s no money at the end of the month.”

    “It’s a great motivator to be out there on a daily basis trying to secure work,” said Pease.

    Having just moved to rent a house on the lake, Pease is looking forward finding some time to spend on the water this summer.

    “I love the water, I love to fish,” he said.

    The more he works with local businesses, the more Pease has found he enjoys getting to know the owners and learn their stories.

    “The greatest thing is being able to talk about how they got to where they are,” he said.

    “The reward for me is every one of my customers becomes a friend,” said Pease.
