Yesterday, I read one of the most honest, no-holds-barred blog posts from a professional voice talent about what people who are not making ends meet in the voiceover business should consider regarding the future of their career. Want to read it too?
Over the weekend, Bob Souer posted an insightful and forthright article entitled Packing it in? written for readers who are in the business of voiceovers but may not, for a variety of reasons, be the best candidate to do so.
Bob clearly states that there is more to a career in voiceover than merely speaking into a microphone. It's a sales and marketing job that demands your full attention, dedication, talent and resources.
In the closing paragraphs, Bob poses a few hard hitting questions that every semi-professional or amateur talent should ask, not only for themselves, but for their family and others who are dependent upon them as well.
