How Big Are You?

by | Oct 18, 2015 | VO Business | 1 comment

bigBig enough to admit your mistakes, and learn from them?

Big enough to swallow your pride and seek help?

Big enough to admit voiceover is a marathon and not a sprint?

Big enough to say:  “I just don’t know how to do that?”, and find out how.

Big enough to try and try again until it works?

Big enough to search until you find a better answer?

Big enough to do the work…the hard work?

Big enough to ask a friend or colleague for advice?

Big enough to turn down a demeaning rate for your hard work?

Big enough to throw out your business plan if it’s not working?

Big enough to ask someone to critically tear apart your latest demo?

Big enough to say “no” to a bad client?

Big enough to sacrifice for the end goal?

Big enough to contribute to the professional community?

I’ll tell you what…I’m not as big as I thought I was.  But I want to be bigger.  How ’bout you?

    Dave- thank you for your pearls of wisdom. You never fail when looking not only at the tiny details but also at the “big” picture.

    Thank you for teaching so well.
