  1. I am a “Newbie” to the Voice over Biz. I Started virtually back in of October of 2010. Since then, I have done over 50 Local, National and International TV Commercials Collectively. I am ecstatic about doing VO work. Now I guess in any biz that you are your own Boss in, that there are always Highs and Lows. I am hitting a low, due to the fact that Work has slowed down. I start looking at myself as if I have done something wrong, even though ever VO I complete, I get the Royal Thumbs up on the VO!
    I start working on internal recording stuff, and at times, I get depressed, because I’m not doing more. I guess in my case due to the fact that I have become Physically disabled so as to not hold a regular Tradesman job that I have been used to, I am Jumping head first into Voice Over work. Am I Unique in feeling like this. I doubt it, but it’s good to know from Experts on How I can Deal with it. What would be some suggestions on what to do in the meantime. Making Internet connections? Going to local production companies with Demo CDs? I would love some input!
