6.6 How to register for ProConnect LIVE

NOTE: This lesson contains content that may only be applicable to active VOHeroes Pro members.

PROS ONLY Again, the ProConnect LIVE workout is a specialized workout that you should make time to attend each month. It is included in your Pro or Pro Emeritus membership, and is crucial in helping you with the business side of your voice over practice.

In that same list of workout summaries you see when you visit the Workouts + link, you’ll find near the bottom of the list, one called ProConnect Live:


Be sure to register for that when you’re registering for your on-mic workout, and be ready for some great guidance on your business, the tech, and the mindset of your voice over work.

“What exactly happens in a ProConnect LIVE session?”

After an introduction, your coach will ask if anyone has any victories to share. This is voluntary, and the victory you share doesn’t have to be huge, it just has to be something you’re glad happened. A booking, a call back, a strategy implemented, even a moment when you realized you were doing things better than you did before.

Then, the heart of the workout: your two minute update, where you refer to written notes you’ve prepared (it’s very important that you write these notes down, so you respect the time limit we place on all attendees – your coach will be running a timer, and will let you know if you’re running over). The updates usually consist of 60 seconds on what happened in your voice over practice in the past month, and 60 seconds on what you have planned in the next month.

We then give you a reminder about being organized with your goal-setting, with a recap of the Ivy Lee Method, just to keep you on track.

After that recap, we open the discussion to anything you want to talk about regarding your voice over practice. If you’ve got questions about a new website, something that ACX is now doing, an issue with a client, billing and pricing, your challenges when it comes to your mindset…whatever you’d like to discuss, ask questions about and get help from your peers and coaches. You can also offer your opinions about things in the industry and issues that have come up that you’d like advice on resolving. This is the time for you to share and support your fellow student.

Finally, we ask what your #1 takeaway was from the session, and we wrap up with any administrative information your coach needs to share.

Again, this workout is open to all active Pro and Pro Emeritus students, and only occurs once a month, and is online via Zoom.

Don’t forget to sign up for ProConnect LIVE at the same time that you sign up for your on-mic Workout.

Now that we know what the business-oriented workout is all about (the commerce, science and mindset aspects of our four keys), let’s look in a bit more detail at how to participate fully in the ProConnect Live workout session.

This course is always being improved. Some or all of the content of this lesson is temporarily unavailable.

Let us know if you see something that needs updating. Some content has not yet been added, and as we do, we’ll make announcements in the ProConnect discussion group.
