A couple of years ago I wrote a post about how building a voiceover business is a lot like farming. You have to cultivate the ground, plant seeds, till the weeds, wait, pray for rain, wait some more and then you get to harvest. And then start all over again. Constantly.
Today, Seth Godin amplifies and clarifies the point of that farming analogy with blog post Gradually and then suddenly. It’s a post well worth a moment of your time to read and several of them to consider.
Oh, one other parallel between farming and voiceover? And this one I know in my bones because I grew up as a farm kid in North Central Minnesota: it’s a lot of hard work.
Yet at the same time voiceover is much better than working for a living.
