I'm really excited about the podcast interview I recently released over on iTunes!
Why? Because I had a chance to talk with professional voice actor Tim Paige.
Now, the name Tim Paige might not mean anything to you, but let me tell you that Tim is having himself a very successful voice-over career.
But his level of success is not the most impressive thing to me.
What amazes and impresses the heck out of me is that Tim is having all this success while working at his FULL-TIME job as Conversion Educator at LeadPages!
That's right - - it is very possible to have a successful voice-over career PART-TIME.
I talk a lot about the steps needed to create a solid foundation for your VO career, as well as setting aside even small amounts of time to work on your dream.
I speak and write from experience, because that's what I've been doing with my VO career over the past several years - - and I was thrilled when I met Tim and found he was doing the same thing!
We hear and read so much about people wanting to take a big leap of faith and dive into voice acting full-time. Some people do, but many can't make it work.
Maybe a better path to success is testing the waters on a part-time basis.
The key to success is to commit to doing what it takes to create that solid foundation - get focused, get trained, learn the business, create your brand, and create your home recording studio.
The beauty of the VO industry is that you can do all these things on the margins of your day and still make progress. You can take small, meaningful steps every day and get closer to realizing your goals.
And you can do it without quitting your day job - - just yet.
If you get a chance to listen to the podcast interview with my friend Tim Paige - please do. I love being able to share resources that will further your journey - and the advice that Tim gives will be invaluable.
