A Day in the Life of Voiceover Actors-Time Management Strategies for Voice Actors

Success in any career depends on how well you are able to manage your time. This philosophy applies across different career paths including voice over acting. There is a point in your daily schedule where additional work does not translate to more success. Voiceover actors have to contend with the temptation of working for so long but not getting value for their time and effort. 

What Time of the Day are Voice Actors Most Productive

Productivity is at its highest in the mornings and this does not apply just to the voice acting industry. However, people are different and so are their preferences and choices. There are voice actors who may prefer working in the afternoons but to make the hustle easier, you need to have a more methodical approach to your daily schedule. Most people getting into voice acting tend to ignore their own uniqueness and simply move with the flow. If everyone is doing it one way it doesn’t mean you have to do it the same way. Achieving success with your voice over talent will depend on how well you craft your daily management strategy.

How Much Time Goes into Auditions, Demos and Other Tasks

Most American voice over actors can attest that a significant amount of their time is spent auditioning for new jobs. Even seasoned and professional voice actors need new gigs for them to stay afloat or grow their business. More auditions mean that your voice has the potential to be heard by thousands of clients out there. At the same time, you must be open to criticism. Not every audition you do will receive a positive feedback from potential clients.
Many times you'll get no feedback at all. So get used to that and try to be objective.

How do Voice Actors Stay Motivated

One of the greatest incentives for voice actors is being able to create your own schedule. Yet, too much comfort at home can make us lose focus and become less productive. In fact, motivation is different for everyone. To some people, motivation is being able to stick to a set daily schedule. Others get inspired by engaging in physical activities when stress levels escalate. Transferring that energy to their recording. Your peers, your kids and every day people too are an amazing source of inspiration.

A Day in the Life of a Voice Actor

From working short to long hours, self- fulfillment in your career as a voiceover actor in Nashville, TN is achieved through effective time management. Your daily schedule should be balanced between REAL work (paid) and auditions. Each can feed off the other in this way too making effective use of your time.
