Voiceover Talent? Approach Your Career Like A Madman

Voiceover Talent? Approach Your Career Like A Madman

If you tend to play it safe when it comes to your career, kindly fasten your seatbelt. By the end of this week’s podcast, you will fancy yourself a risk taker and an unstoppable force of audacious dreams. You will step out onto the skinny branches of the tree where the sunlight touches down and new growth springs to life.

In this episode, we’re talking to Doug Melville, an entrepreneur and a bona fide “madman” for ad agency TBWA, who wants to help all you voice talents out there win. We tap into how to answer the question of what’s next for your career, brand, and life, translating your dreams into an action plan, and the steps required to get from A to Z, where Z is not the end, but a wider opening to going further.

Joan Baker and Rudy Gaskins are the co-founders of That’s Voiceover!, an annual career expo, and the creators of the newly formed Society of Voice Arts and Sciences and the Voice Arts Awards. Follow them on Twitter @JoanTheVoice and @RGaskins1, and like them on Facebook: Rudy Gaskins At Large and Joan Baker Live.
