Anne and Gabby kick off their new VO B.O.S.S. podcast with putting you in the B.O.S.S. mindset. We are all voice actors, which means we’re usually pretty creative and more artistically focused. However, this means that switching from our actor brain to our business brain can sometimes be easier said than done.
Anne and Gabby break down the process and go over some simple steps on how to put on that business hat, how to make a plan, how to come up with goals and ultimately stick with them! You don’t have to have a business degree to be successful in voice over, but you do have to be smart, diligent and determined! As Gabby remarked, “You don’t want to end up being the best voice actor no one’s ever heard!”
- Challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone, step outside of your actor brain, and put on your business brain!
- Have a PLAN and create goals. It doesn’t have to be complicated. But it does have t be written down. And placed somewhere you can SEE it.
- Do your homework! Create a competitive analysis that you can refer to and learn from.
- Understand that your business plan is continually evolving. Don’t get stuck so that you can’t move forward – Evolve with your business plan.
