Be Bold. Be Brave. Be You.
Looking back at my writing of the past few years, I see that I spent a lot of time warning my readers: “A voice-over career is not as easy as some people want you to believe.” “There’s no success without sacrifice.” “This business is highly subjective and unfair.” “You’ll be competing against thousands of hopefuls.” […]
The Seven Worst Mistakes Beginner Voice-Overs Make
You know what they say about hindsight, and it’s annoying. Especially in retrospect. The idea is that, had we known better, we would have done better. That sounds very reasonable in theory, but in reality, I find most people to be stubbornly unreasonable. Hindsight or no hindsight. In many major decisions, logic seems to play […]
The Weight Of The World
Last week, I did a webinar on blogging for members of The VoiceOver Network. One of the things host Rachael Naylor wanted to know, was how I got from zero to over thirty-eight thousand subscribers. Although I did not survey each and every reader of this blog, I do receive a lot of feedback from […]
Protecting Your Voice
Your voice is your biggest asset, but are you treating it that way? Do you really know how to take care of it? If not, let me cut to the chase. Vocal Health Educator Elissa Weinzimmer will teach you how to protect it in a special online class for voice talent. It’s a workshop about maintaining […]
Why I Want You To Fail
“Failure” is one of the dirtiest words in the dictionary. In a culture where the notion of “being successful” is forced upon us from an early age, failure is hardly an option. Winners never fail, and who doesn’t want to be a winner? Helicopter parents pressure their offspring to always be the best, and go […]
Feeding Your Soul
A few weeks ago, I gave you my “formula” for being less busy, and more productive: People who run a successful business hire people who are smarter and more talented than they are, to take care of certain aspects of that business. These experts are able to do things better and quicker, leaving you with […]
Learning A Dying Language
To say that voice-overs are spoiled by technology is an overstatement, but one thing is certain. In less than ten years our business has transformed itself tremendously. Quality recording equipment is as affordable as it has ever been. We audition for projects from all over the world from the comfort of a home studio. We no […]
Being Wrong About Being Right
Go ahead. Do it! After today you may ask me everything about the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis, and the early onset of puberty. I promise you one thing: it will make me cry like a baby. Normally, I don’t concern myself with gonadotripin-releasing hormones stimulating steroid secretion. But as a voice-over, people send me the strangest scripts […]
Are You Wasting Your Time Going Nowhere Fast?
What’s frustration number one for a freelancer? Being busy without being productive. It’s a trap I have fallen into many times. I was working all day long, without much to show for it. That is, until something finally dawned upon me: Busy people talk about how little time they have. Productive people make time for […]
Only Fools and Horses
If… You believe that having a good voice is your ticket to success, You’ve never had any coaching or training, You don’t know what equipment to buy, You have no professional demos, You have no idea how to price your services, You think that low rates will attract quality clients, You don’t know how to run a […]
