4.3 VOHeroes Coaches: mentorship and guidance

So, who leads all these workouts? Who gives us feedback and guidance?

To help you be successful (do more of what works and less of what doesn’t), and become a hero to your clients, we support you in many ways.

One of those ways to support you is with group and one-on-one coaching.

We have a great team of coaches here on the VOHeroes team. Each of them have not only extensive experience coaching voice talent, but they are all working voice talent themselves.

You can choose to workout with any one of them, on-mic, in a group setting, each month.

And they all rock! Meet your coaches:
