Coaching is very useful when the source is useful and a critique is only an opinion. Where do we go to get help?

Coaching methods are supported by "proof of concept" as opposed to serendipity and a critique is not IMHO but, with good grace, an expressed informed opinion. The real trick is the ability to tell the difference.

Key things to learn which can't be taught?

1 - Show up on time.
2 - Be nice, always.
3 - Our job is NOT to educate clients and the gift of being able to resist the temptation of attempting to do so.
4 - To understand "They either like you or they don't!" We NEVER try to convince.
5 - Your job is the Voice Over on a project. Just do your job.
6 - Repeat as often possible "It's fine! Happy to help!"
7 - Never say "No" instead say "not one for me but I know that (INSERT NAME) is the VO you need, here's a link.
8 - Spending time with other VO people can be a delight but is unlikely to be a career game changer. A return on your investment is measurable in cash terms.
9 - Know when to walk away.
10 - You're trying to feed, clothe and house yourself. Failure to do that means you do not have a business. Enjoy your VO hobby AFTER you get a job.
