Hey there, hero!
I’ve been asked to speak at WOVOCon later this month in Las Vegas.
I haz essite. (That’s what the kids are saying when they mean “I am excited.”)
And they have asked me to suggest my subject. Sure, I could go with Getting Started In VO, as that’s my go-to.
But there are likely more experienced talent attending this event, not a majority of beginners.
So…want to be my advisor? I have a really short question for you that will help me set my agenda.
Hope this helps!

Uh, Lawrence the 17th, and I have been asked.
To a really honor that this happened I’ve been asked to speak at wolve ochondaworld voice over organization.
Having a big convention in Las Vegas coming up later this month the Tropicana. Maybe you’ll be there. If so, please come
say Hello. I would love to chat with you maybe grab a drink.
Maybe share a meal who knows just talked about voice over. I’d love to do that. Anyway, I’m going to speak and instead of
saying hey, we really need this or we really need that. We’d like you to talk about this. They said what would you like to
And that’s really great.
But I’ve got sort of an embarrassment of riches when it comes to the options that I have. I mean I could certainly
Just simply do a version of getting started in voice-over.
It’s an 80 minute presentation and I can compress that down to 80 minutes or I could alter it a little bit and make it
your voice over practice
with the fundamentals that lead to success which would be hey, maybe you started voice over and just threw things against
the wall to see what would stick and maybe now it’s time to go back and go okay if I did this over again, and if I redo
this if I
Do a little self-improvement retrofitting and started doing things this way. Maybe it would help. So those are a couple of
possibilities, but what I’d love is your advice
I’d love for you to put in the comments below this video.
The number one not one two or three if you going to do that do separate comments, cuz I want to kind of I want to look at
them individually and and not be confused.
buy multiple things
What is over the course of the time that you’ve been either watching these videos if you’re not one of my vo euros.
Or had been formally a member of the OTA go go.
One thing that I’ve shared with you that I’ve taught you or that I helped you discover or that I’ve introduced you to.
What one thing do you think is the coolest the most valuable the one thing that if you could share it with other voice
over talent you’d feel like you done them a favor.
What is the one thing that I have brought to your attention that has made the most difference that that makes you feel the
most accomplished or?
Help you save time or really changed your perspective on the world of voice over.
Again, I’m speaking a 12 Con coming up in a couple of weeks. We can have to make these decisions quickly.
Let me know.
Let me know in the comments below tell me what the one thing is. And if you have more than one just do multiple comments.
Don’t put them all in one comment, and I’d love to find out what you think.
I’d love to find out what you think cuz it’s it’s always like I don’t know. I don’t know what’s most useful. I know that
most of the stuff that I say has some use.
But I don’t know what’s been most useful and then when you see what everybody has said.
Give me your thoughts on what you think. I should talk about.
Do it in the comments Below on VOD rose.com.

More productive more successful more satisfying and more profitable.
I’m David H Lawrence the 17th, and thank you so much for watching and I will talk to you tomorrow..
Its hard to drill down on the one thing you’ve made the most difference in my career in. There are many. But for this video, but here is what comes to mind: Your teaching on how to audition has been amazing, so let’s go with that. Specifically-You talk about making bold choices vs. relying on takes, not overthinking, let it go and move on to others. This also includes, The Audience of One. This topic is so relevant for a room of beginners to advanced. Every talent needs this. It could be insightful why talent isn’t booking, or perhaps why experienced talent are not booking other areas of work they want to break into. If I was there and heard that a teacher was speaking on why I might not be booking, or how to transform my audition blues to audition freedom, I would be in. Whatever you teach, above all, your passion and way you look into each persons eyes and say you can help them, is key. I don’t go a day without being grateful I am working with you. Your teaching has helped me book 2 on camera jobs this month. Congrats on this opportunity David.
Teachings on how to make yourself a business understanding that there are things that you need to be doing to make sure everything is getting done to the maximum opportunity not just relying on your agent
For me it’s been how you’ve helped with working through the Mindset challenges.
A bias for action. And this might be a second idea but I believe it goes with this: just get started, don’t wait for everything to be perfect.
“Audience of one” is the most valuable to me. Regarding what you should teach, I’d usually say “Getting Started,” but if this group is mostly working VO talent, then I’d suggest the “Retrofitting” topic.
You are so good at sharing valuable info w/ all of us. As a VO newbie, your advice has been such a gift and I’m very grateful for all that you have shared! so the only thing I can think of for you to present at this amazing convention is the importance of mentoring. If a person is good at what they do, others will take notice, right? they will be sought after for jobs and hopefully their success will grow. If the audience is established in the field, perhaps they’ve forgotten what it’s like to start out in the business. Essentially, we need more people like YOU to be willing to share their gifts. I know, you’re one of a kind ;-), but they can certainly follow in your footsteps or try to! Enlighten people on the different ways to mentor or for them to give a hand to someone who looks up to them. When I get to be a superstar one day (ever the optimist!), I want to find ways to give back. In my book, that’s a small price to pay for success.
Super geeky organizational methods for file management and storage safety.
Action vs Activity
You helped me recognize that my guts were right and that I could do this. Confidence. Belief. Mindset. Action.
“Do more of what works; and less of what doesn’t.” It’s simple, but are you keeping track?
In all the categories of voice over, there is one thing that stands out for me that you have incorporated and that is: “the art, the commerce, the science.” It is applicable across the board and I believe a very important piece of information to expound upon.
Art, commerce, science…and mindset, right?
“Creating your own content.”
Yes! Retrofitting your business with art, commerce, science, and mindset. Kind of like an Annual Tune-Up for people already working.
Don’t be in such a rush to make a demo. I feel people think it’s easy…all you need is a demo and then the audition a couple times. They don’t book and become discouraged. Learn, study and live the art of voice overs, the bookings will come with persistence.
