VO BIZ eCourse - LESSON #2
How To Assess Your Voice Over Biz
Future - Use Free Video & Worksheet

April 8, 2014

(VOXtra) - You may have been avoiding an exercise like this - afraid to truly assess where you are with your voice over business, and where it's headed on the current track.

So: gulp. Breathe deeply. And consider this a step toward enlightenment - and change, if needed.

Below is a brief but detailed video and link to a worksheet to get you started. They are Part 2 of free advice from business coach / voice actor Ron Minatrea, in an eCourse presented by Ron and VoiceOverXtra.

These free lessons are offered every Tuesday this month, leading up to hands-on, live webinars on April 29 and May 1, when we'll dive deeply into strategic action planning, how to set the right goals, and actions and measures for voice over business success.

Not just for VO beginners, this eCourse will help voice actors at any career level.

"One element of planning for the future is looking at the past," Ron says. "What do I need to stop? What do I need to start doing today?"
