At the end of each year, I review my journals to see what I accomplished. In doing this exercise for 2011, I found some comments that I want to share with you.
Just over a year ago, the media was in a feeding frenzy with news about a voiceover talent who seemingly became an overnight success.
You may remember the story of Ted Williams. In one day, he went from being a homeless person to someone who was overwhelmed with lucrative offers from the Cleveland Cavaliers, the NFL, MTV, Kraft, and other companies.
I am sooo glad to see you make the point that we shouldn’t spend time worrying about any voiceover career outside of our own!I haven’t commented on anything to do with this story until now. I am amazed at the time and energy that some voice talent have used this week in all the blog posts, forum comments, social media updates, etc. that they have devoted to this one topic.The reaction in the v-o community has become like the people who sit around and endlessly discuss any TV contest reality show, particularly American Idol.I choose to put my spare time and energy into the pursuit of my own goals and dreams rather than waste it thinking and talking about those of someone else.
Good grief.Enough railing about the business. It is what it is.Concentrate on what you can actually do something about.Your delivery.
Too many reads just don’t hit the mark. Make sure what you are turning in will indeed stop people in their tracks.
