If you learn one thing from taking a voiceover workshop or class, it should be that having a great voice and even great talent is not enough to make it in this business. Search back through the posts here (and on my regular VO Blog – isdnvoicetalent) for more on that, but I was reminded of this mantra again today when VoiceoverXtra arrived in my Inbox.
Jennifer Vaughn wrote a great article detailing the OTHER skills you need to make it. We call it “Type A” personalities.
She includes a list of personality traits that are important for success…do you have these attributes?
- quick study,
- self motivated,
- goal oriented,
- work ethic or work-a-holic mentality,
- overly competitive,
- creative thinker,
- strong/deep desire to achieve,
- firm demeanor (you’re not seen as a pushover).
