Today we get to speak with Jodi Krangle. We had so much fun talking about audio and branding and podcasting that I decided to bring her back. She’s the Podcast host at Audio Branding: The Hidden Gem of Marketing.In episode 34 we discovered her love for computers, software, and music and how it drove her into her passion for voice-over acting.But in this episode, we get to dig deeper into what it takes to become a voice-over artist, and how important it is to be coachable. We also discuss the differences between podcasting and voice-over acting. So let’s jump right in!
Hacks to Take Away
- Jodi talked about willingness to learn, and a willingness to believe that you do not know everything.
- People want to hear real life conversation. And what’s really cool about podcasting and voiceover acting is how similar they are to each other.
- Being coachable is so important, because it helps with your personal development, not just professionally.
- If you’re not competitive, and you’re just hanging your shingle out, and you’re never gonna get a job.
- You need to understand that at the end of the day, this is a service you are offering to someone. And if they ask you to do something in a certain way, that’s the way you do it.
- “I’m definitely an introvert. That doesn’t mean that I’m shy, but it does mean that I recharge by bein alone and having peace. And if I don’t have enough alone time and peacetime, I become very irritable.” – Jodi
- “You never can’t get back time when you’ve used it. I couldn’t help myself if there’s no way I could be a productive member of their team unless I had some time freedom.” Jodi
