Episode 42: Why Voice Over People Are Special

This Episode Is A Pep-Talk For YOU!

I spend some time in this episode encouraging you to keep working on your dream of voice John_and_MIKE_2-13-14acting and voice over.

Voice Over People are special because we all started doing it because we had or have the dream of using our voices in some form of media. It’s not a common career. If you’re in VO or starting a VO Career you’re working on your goals and dreams.

Many people go through life wishing and dreaming and never doing and end their lives with that regret.

We’re at least working on the VO dream and we should take pride in wherever we are in our journey. We’re in the game. We’re playing. We’re living our dreams.

Never ever give up on it. Keep going. You’ll make it.

Hey It’s Been Awhile

It’s been a rough year for me so far this year. I’ve had to take some time away from the podcast to help my family with some “Stuff” that’s been going on.

It’s given me some time to reflect on what I’ve accomplished and other things I still want to do.

It’s also reinforced the knowledge that we can’t take life for granted and that if we have goals and dreams – then there’s no “Perfect” time to start working on them. “Now” is the perfect time.

I guess someone many years ago summed it up with the phrase “There’s no time like the present.”

Some Inspiring Music

Here Are A Couple of Links to some RUSH tunes that encourage people to go after their goals and dreams:
