I’ve Met Your Competition

Golden graph chartThere’s no question the voice over business is a competitive one. I do this full-time. I believe I do a great job for my clients. I’m grateful for the success I’ve already achieved and for the success I know is in my future.

But I struggle.

It’s hard. There are thousands upon thousands of other very talented people with microphones and computers and studios and voices.

My competition.

Your competition.
