Never make a sacrifice but be prepared to invest in yourself.
Before you ask someone else what they think you should do see how long they take deciding “Soup or shrimps?”
Don’t ask if they like your demo, ask them to refer you to someone with work.
Ask your coach about their most recent VO job. If it’s more than a week ago make sure more than a week goes by before you get another coaching session from them.
Job offers should be assessed based on whether they make financial sense or not – Like or dislike has nothing to do with it.
Talk to the big hitters, the REAL big hitters – They’ll give you time.
Is what you’re seeking within your reach? Raise your game and learn to jump.
Wanting to be a Voice Over is not enough – You HAVE to be a Voice Over.
The only feedback worth believing reads as follows – “Payment of invoice No ….”
Is my set up good enough? When switched on does it give a clean feed from the client’s bank account to yours? If so, then it’s just fine.
I would offer only this alternative thought regarding one’s voiceover coach, “Ask your voiceover coach about the recent work of his or her students.” (i.e.: John Wooden was never close to the level of basketball player as were those whom he coached, but his record as to whether he was a great coach or not, isn’t subject to question. Being a great coach doesn’t always require being a great performer.)
