I’m always telling my clients to be authentic. To share who they are.
Well, cancer gave me a choice—be uber-next-level-authentic and share my fight with the world—or grit my teeth and pretend nothing is going on.
Fortunately, my amazing dream team here are CSM didn’t give me much of a choice.
They said, “You tell everyone to be authentic. And to ask for help. Now it’s time for you to take your own advice!” (more…)
Are you “faking it” the right way?
I talk often about faking it till you make it. Especially in the beginning of your VO career, when perhaps you don’t have a lot of experience or confidence, it can be necessary to “fake it” until you feel like you belong. Why? Because it helps you get over mental roadblocks that aren’t real, and definitely aren’t serving you. (more…)
Finally ready to step up and land in the position you deserve to be in?
I’ve spent 30 years figuring out what makes VO careers tick, and helping passionate people get where they want to go. (more…)
I would have been in London last week.
Instead, I was in my kitchen after I’d finished work, organizing my silverware drawer. I found the little plastic spoons that went off to school in my kids’ (who are now teens/young women) lunchboxes every day, and I started sobbing—about everything. And for a little while, with colorful spoons in my hand, I felt the global grief that we’re all experiencing in different ways, right now.
And then I felt so much better. And I felt immensely grateful.
So today, I just want to tell you…
I spend my days on the phone with voice actors like you. Time and again, do you know what wins jobs? CONFIDENCE. Yes, in a competition between 2 super talented actors—the one with the most confidence wins.
Some people have talent by the bucket-loads, but without confidence—they don’t soar.
Equally as important as honing your talent is developing and maintaining your confidence. If you don’t believe your read, nobody else is going to believe it. Nobody is out there winning gigs who doesn’t believe in themselves. (more…)
