Have you ever found yourself in a situation where it seemed that mountains needed to move in order for you to complete a task?
Recently, one of our voice talent members at Voices.com faced a tight deadline and went way above and beyond the call of duty, showing us all that no matter how challenging a situation may appear, choosing to rise to the occasion can make all the difference.
When you put your mind to something, is there anything you can't do?
Hear Albert Hensley's story in today's VOX Daily!
Picture this: You're waiting in the hospital for gall bladder surgery and all of a sudden, a rush voice-over job comes in that has to get done.
This happened to Albert Hensley, pictured at left, who from his hospital bed was able to send in an audition to a private job posting, have surgery and then cut the final audio within hours of release.
"Long story short, Albert got out of the hospital around 5:30pm PST and had files recorded and delivered to me within a couple hours following his release after getting to two other jobs first," Blair Frayer, Voices.com Account Manager, exclaimed.
When I heard about this, my jaw literally dropped. The dedication Albert demonstrated to his clients was out of this world.
What motivated Albert to go the extra mile?
Albert shares, "Well, admittedly my first thought after being discharged wouldn't normally be 'Get back to work!' but because this was a regular client who had always treated me with dignity, respect, and kindness, plus, they had a tighter-than-usual deadline, I figured I'd gut it out, and make sure they got what they needed. What better way for a client to come back for more, than to dazzle and go above-and-beyond."
