Hey everyone, I’m Stephen George and this is the first in a limited series of video blogs about my voice over business. To get started, I wanted to talk about New Year’s Resolutions. We’re right around the corner from January First. A recent study showed 80% of people who make resolutions give up before February starts. As a rule, I don’t make resolutions. I believe there’s always room for improvement, whether it’s January First, March 18th, or July 27th.
So Before I look ahead to 2019, it’s important for me to look back on the year to see how I’ve evolved, before I can determine how to move ahead.
I committed to training. Over the course of several consecutive months I met weekly with coaches to improve my skillset. I came out of training more confident about my abilities than ever.
Improved offerings. Over the summer I recorded a new commercial demo. A Commercial demo is considered a standard in the industry. I started my career on a different path, and while I intend to stay slightly off-center, sometimes it’s easier to book work when potential clients listen to something they’re more attuned to hearing (i.e. commercials)
Upgraded equipment. My studio features a Blue Kiwi microphone and now a new Audient ID4 interface. In 2019, I’m adding a travel rig to incorporate work while on the road.
I covered more ground than that this year, and I’ll talk about that in the next post. In meantime, be sure to keep up with my other posts on my social media pages, or my website stephen george vo -dot-com. Thanks for watching.
