So often when someone contacts me to ask how to get into the voiceover business he or she will say something along the lines of “people have told me for years that I have a really nice voice.” Here’s the truth. Voiceover work is not about you. Even more so, it’s not about your voice. Really. If you attention is on you, what you want and how you sound you’re very likely to miss the opportunities for voice work.
My friend Kara Edwards provided a powerful illustration of how easy it can be to miss the open door of opportunity on her blog yesterday. Those doors are all around you. Are you watching and listening? Or are you so focused on yourself, your voice and what you want that you can’t see them when they open.
