Are You “All In”? – Carrie Olsen Voiceover

Are You “All In”?

You’re teetering on the fence. Wondering if this business can work for you.

Maybe you’ve booked a voiceover job here and there, you loved it, and you just want to be able to do more.

Or you’ve never booked a job, but you know this is something you can do.

On the left side of the fence is the return path. It’s safe. It’s familiar. It works.

On the right side of the fence is adventure, guaranteed ups and downs, growth, and fulfillment.

But to also have consistent voiceover work on the right side of the fence, you have to be all in.

The problem with being “all in” is it isn’t clear what that looks like!

Does that mean booking a bunch of coaching sessions? Spending a lot of money on a demo?

Where does the actual work come from? Is there an A-to-Z that gives words and instructions to the “all in” concept?

Over the last 4 months, I’ve been mentoring a small group of voice actors who made the leap and went “all in.”

Thinking about that experience, there’s a part of me that wants to create a movie-trailer-esque montage out of our time together, with inspiring music and slow-mo because it feels that huge and emotional to me.

The breakthroughs. The ah-ha moments. The wins.

If you’ve ever heard me talk about marketing, you know I get giddy about it. Because it’s so beautiful!

Maybe that’s a weird way to talk about marketing, but I don’t experience it as just a necessary part of your business.

It allows for self-expression, it fosters relationships, it helps you know yourself better. And, of course when done properly, it helps you build the business of your dreams.

The goal of this small mastermind was to help awesome voice actors get more work while keeping a strong pulse on the exact methods of outreach that yield the best results today.

I’ve been keeping this small mastermind hush-hush, but I’m just about ready to share all the takeaways from it publicly.

That’s what we’ll be talking about over the next few months.

In the meantime, will you leave a comment and let me know what you’re biggest obstacles to being “all in” have been? Or if you are “all in,” what is keeping you from reaching that next level in your business?

Looking forward to hearing from you!
