If you've always thought that you have to live in a big city to be a successful voice actor...think again.
In today's internet world, location independence is quickly becoming a true benefit of pursuing a voice-over career.
My podcast guest this week is living proof of it.
Lauren McCullough did the NYC thing for a number of years, working on a career in theater and film, but it wasn't until she left the big city behind and headed to the mountains of North Carolina that her VO career started to take off.
She found peace and calm in the beautiful mountains and was able to focus all her energy on building a full-time VO business from the comfort of her home. She built a Whisper Room and began auditioning. Over time she was able to create a level of business for herself - proof that location independence is a true benefit of voice acting - - and you don't need to live in NYC or LA or Chicago to make it in the VO world.
Her warm and friendly voice has landed her some great gigs with regional and national clients, and in the interview, she shares terrific insight about the industry and some of the lessons she's learned on her journey.
So grab a cup of coffee or tea, pull up a chair and join me for an interview with "The Voice Next Door."
