The world of arts and entertainment is where big dreams shine bright, and in this domain, the lessons of success will supercharge your pursuit of doing what you love. To that end, we’re bringing you our brand new podcast, “Get Out There,” where we chat with successful voice actors to learn how they did it.

Today’s guest, Bob Bergen, is best known for his work with the Warner Bros.’ “Looney Tunes” franchise as the voice of Porky Pig and Tweety Bird. Bob is also responsible for the voice of Luke Skywalker in over a dozen “Star Wars” video games, and several roles on “Robot Chicken.” An impressive résumé, but what really sticks when you talk to Bob is that his success is everyone’s success. Here, Bob discusses his winning approach to work, career, and lifestyle in a way that will open your mind to new ways of thinking.

To be successful, surround yourself with successful people. But to do so, you have to get out where the people are and where magic is happening. Bob did just that. You’ll hear how his success in the entertainment business is a lesson in commitment, dedication, tenacity, authenticity, and fearlessness.
