As a performer, body language is absolutely one of your greatest tools to communicate with your audience, right? But what if you only had your voice to express a story?
Enter the major fears that come with a career in voice over. "How do I know if my voice is good enough?" "Isn't it super competitive?" "Where do I even begin?"
DON’T PANIC! I had to overcome the same fears and I’m ready to pass on What You Need to Know Before Starting a Voiceover Career.
This week kicks off Voiceover Camp - a summer-long #AskAnExpert series with Amy Russ of Actor-Webs. She, maybe like you, was curious about the transition I made from one form of acting to working in voiceover. Together, we break down what you should expect before starting a career in voice over, the technique and training that comes with the career, and the big differences in auditioning for a voice over role as opposed to other auditioning opportunities.
SPOILER: What I really wanted to express to Amy was how much voice over has completely changed the course of my acting career. If you approach it with the right mindset & training, it can be the most lucrative and fun branch of your acting career, too!!
So what do you think?

"Don't treat your acting like a hobby and be mad when it doesn't turn into a career."
Actress and audiobook narrator, Callie Beaulieu shared this quote with me during our chat about Power Group this week. It was a thought from her acting teacher, and it eventually led her to the #GlobalActor Power Group where she has worked to own new business skills and becoming savvy in relationship building in order to book more work and feel awesome about both her acting career & personal life.
We get into the benefits of Long-Term coaching in the Power Group!

Sick of waiting tables, temping or working some other non-acting related day job that leaves you feeling exhausted and unfulfilled?
What if there was an acting gig that could provide you consistent work AND flexibility?
Well, there is!
With several national & regional commercials under my belt as well as over 70 audiobooks, I can honestly say voiceover and audiobook narration has changed my life.
And I'm not the only one!
As one Power Group Session comes to a close and another is opening, I thought it'd be the perfect time to sit down with a few actors who've benefited from the program and get their take on how the Power Group works.
First up is Tom Richardson! He fills us in on his journey to landing and narrating his first audiobook!
This summer, I'd love to help you find similar success! :)
Now through July 5th, enrollment is open for the summer Power Groups!
Find the full details here and if you'd like to be sure the program will be the right fit, schedule a quick call with me ASAP. But be sure to ACT NOW, as there are only 5 spots left!
So, your life's dream was to move to NYC... or LA and "Make It" as an actor...
You got to said city and gave it as good of a shot as you could... but it wasn't enough... for whatever reason you've found yourself back in your hometown when you swore to yourself you'd never go back.
Actor Nightmare, right?
While, it might seem like complete surrender at first, moving back home does not necessarily have to signal the end of your acting career.
In today's video- with Ava Gaudet of #TipsOfTheTrade -- we get real-- we've actually both been here before, and are pumped to share some tangible tips that we discovered along the way.

Is the expense of living in a major market like NYC or LA causing more stress in your life than progress in your career?
What if you didn't actually have to live in one of these two cities in order to be a working actor?
Well... contrary to popular belief, you don't actually HAVE to live in NYC or LA to make all your money from acting, and in fact, you may be able to get the work you've been seeking in a smaller community.
Curious to learn more?
