When I first started my voiceover journey a year and a half ago, Chris McCann was a familiar name in my circle of Voice Actor peeps.
I was really interested in his story so I reached out to chat. We got along really well right off the bat and have become friends and even worked on some of the same projects since that time.
While Chris is one of my VO buds, he’s just a downright wonderful guy. However, his journey into voiceover has not been all daisies and unicorns. When Chris started in voiceover, he was recording on his iPhone and living on Food Stamps.
Since then, he’s been able to grow his humble voiceover business into a six-figure venture. BONKERS.
I can’t wait for you to hear Chris’s story and I hope you get some useful nuggets you can implement for your voiceover business as well.
What We’re Talking About:
- From recording on an iPhone and living on Food Stamps to building a successful six-figure voiceover business.
- Chris started out with a Rode NT1-A mic.
- Working with what you have until you have more to work with.
- You can record with crappy equipment when you start out.
- Having six-figures of talent without realizing it.
- The importance of finding the intersection of what you love and what you’re good at.
- Be patient with people when it comes to your vision.
- Don’t work for money.
