Last month I was hired for my first Upwork voice-over gig, a short bio reading for a recording artist based in the States. My client said they really liked my voice and they sent over the script promptly. Yes. Boom. Now what? They didn’t give any indication of the style or tone that they were looking for. So I just took a stab at it, reading in a professional, sincere tone. Instead of stressing over a way to decode what he wanted, I trusted in the fact that he liked my voice, and that I was the one that got selected for the job among who knows how many others.
Learning that when you’re honest about what you can deliver, and you get the job, the client is investing in YOU.
That’s all the permission I need to go with my gut. So I did, and he really liked it! So exicited to take on more work so I updated my little avatar and uploaded samples of my work to Soundcloud
