Persistence, Turning Fear on its Head and The Velveteen Rabbit

A while back, I wrote a blog about Voice Over Success inpired by a book I was reading from Scott Ginsberg.

He was talking about “success strategies” and suggested you find some talented successful people and ask them questions.

So I did it here on the blog.

Joe Szymanski jumped in, and now Bob Souer.

I love learning from folks! And gaining new perspectives!

Here are a couple tidbits:

…I’m learning to turn my fear on its head and to use it as a motivator to move forward, but it’s not easy.

…Don’t rush. Treat the voiceover business like the business it is. Recognize that the vast majority to people trying to make a living at voiceover not only fail, but never make any significant amount of money at it…

And I love Bob’s List of Favorite books on VO – none ABOUT “VO” specifically, but ALL Life Changers.

Here is Bob’s Post if you would like to read the rest!

Here are the four questions I asked:

1. What habits have enabled you to become successful?

2. What habits have blocked you from success?

3. What advice would you give a young VO professional?

4. Whats the best book(s) you have read to help you become successful at what you do?

Wanna share YOUR thoughts?

(PS – Bob’s podcasts with Tracy Pattin over at’s VoiceRegistry Blog were great! You should listen to BothParts!)
