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!
