Episode 062 - The ONE Attribute Every VO Talent Needs

March 20, 2019

Hi all,

Happy Thursday!

This week's podcast is about resilience and resiliency. I'm guilty of it - being so serious and moping when things didn't go the way I hoped.

Being resilient and keeping your spirits up during those VO "valleys" is vastly important. Listen in as I chat through my experiences with resilience and see what some of my VO friends and colleagues had to say!

Episode 058 - Marketing Yourself

February 20, 2019

Happy Thursday!

 

Today on #VOStories I talk about marketing. I know what you're thinking - marketing?

I used to think that too. I'm a creative, not a business person; why would I need marketing? Well, with the help of some really great entrepreneurs, I learned all I could have ever wanted to know about marketing - and now I'm sharing that knowledge with you.

Episode 056 - Find YOUR Spiritual Side (In VO)

February 4, 2019

Happy Tuesday!

This week on VO Stories, I chat about spirituality. Now before you assume anything, let me explain:

I've always viewed voiceovers as an opportunity to grow personally. I was the shy kid; you know - the one that never wanted to talk in class for fear of being wrong. When I first started out, I was working my tail off - but never saw the results I wanted or thought I deserved.

Sometimes, surrendering to the unknown in the best thing you can do for yourself. Just let go. Instead of thinking why me, try asking, "What is the lesson here?"

I promise you - it will change everything.

Happy Tuesday, friends!

It's a new year, so this is the time for everyone to be setting their goals for 2019. Do you have goals set already?

Episode 053 - From Radio Shack to Running VO Castings

January 14, 2019

In today's episode of VO Stories, I'm talking with a guy who has directed over 125,000 voice over auditions (!!!) and that number is STILL growing. He runs castings at a leading bi-coastal talent agency -  the lovely, down to earth and uber smart Hugh Klitzke. 

Hugh shares what he sees that voiceover talent booking jobs on a consistent basis have in common. There are four main pillars he talks about and you won't want to miss them. We also dive into Hugh's classes and how he approaches teaching.
