While doing voice over isn’t necessarily the easiest gig out there, keeping your eyes on the copy shouldn’t be a difficult task… that being said, you’d be surprised by just how many people stray from the script!

Take a listen for yourself and be a fly on the wall during one of Nancy’s private voice over coaching sessions.
