Hello and happy March!
Recently, I was talking to a new voice actor about her business. She had done all the research and knew about all the recommended ways to train and start booking work.
It wasn’t until the end of our conversation that she mentioned that her roommate worked at a radio station.
“What?!” I asked.
“I didn’t mention it because I didn’t think it was relevant,” she said.
She had gotten so invested in pursuing the traditional pathways of building a voiceover career that she hadn’t stopped to think about how she might be able to leverage her unique situation.
Which I completely understand.
Sometimes it’s hard to see those kinds of connections, especially when you’re doing your best to follow a generic path.
She could have missed out on some potential opportunities because she didn’t see the connection right away.
If you want to hear more about how your background plays into your VO business, I started a new, limited series voiceover podcast called The VO Essentials, and in episode 1, I talk all about how your unique history, background, and expertise are huge assets to your VO business.
