Time management is the key to success in every endeavor! It's needed in voice over careers.
Here are some tips to help you minimize time-wasters from your day and prioritize those tasks you must do in a day's time.
Your home-based business has very special needs. Everyone who works from home knows how difficult making your office in your home can be, but voice performers have even a harder task because of the need for silence when recording.
We have to have quiet! That's a tall order, particularly if you have children at home. Young children pose even more difficult challenges for the voice performer.
SO - WHAT TO DO?
What are your options? We've divided our tips into sections:
If you have children ...
1. Establish daily recording hours and try to record while children are at school. Take advantage of before- and after-school options, as valuable enrichment for your children.Control your appointments
1. Book appointments (doctors, dentists, pedicures, your vet) on one or two days (more if needed). That way, part of another day or whole days of the week are free.
5. Keep your datebook current and consult it dailyGroceries and other deliveries pay off big!
We live in a new world where everything from toiletries to groceries to gourmet restaurant foods can be delivered to your door at very reasonable fees.Plan your work and work your plan!
