So you’re thinking “people have been telling me for years that I have a great voice.” I’m sure you do. Really. I do believe you. But, what does that mean, really? Success in voiceover work depends very little on “having a nice voice.” My friend Kitzie Stern provides some insights, thoughts and links on her blog. It’s not a long piece and well worth a few minutes of your time.
Now might also be a good time to bring up my friend Philip Banks‘ 5 percent rule. Only five percent of the people who attempt to make a living at voiceover work will ever make any real money at it. Actually, it’s not so much a rule as an observation.
