Nancy Wolfson: It used to be that this engine of your career ran not only in one piston. And that required moving to a major market in getting the LA or the New York or the Chicago talent agent to sign you.
And now, that has become but one piston in the engine. It is the platinum piston in the engine but there are other pistons that you need to have working for you. So ultimately the aggregate is that you’ve got a major market agent, a small market agent or two or three possibly, I mean, I’m in a sort of a rare situation and then I’m a coach who can actually also send you auditions.
You want to be on Voices.com and the aggregate of all of that is what we’ll really constitute in active opportunity center for your career. And possibly the last pursuit of all of that is the major market agent. It is still and will be for quite a long time the platinum piston in your engine but actually, that last piston in the engine, that platinum piston, that major market agent is best and only pursued when you’ve got a whole lot of work that you’ve procured for yourself to show them that you’re a good person to do business with.

    On today’s podcast I heard only a brief minute or so from Nancy Wolfson and not a peep from Anna Vocino, grand totaling about 2 minutes, including the intro and exit track. I’m wondering if there was an error? Is there more? Please??

    Hi James,
    Thank you for commenting and for your question.
    To answer your question, that was the episode – pithy, short and to the point! I wish there was more too but the recording was part of a longer lesson that Nancy and Anna recorded for Break Into VoiceOver.
    If you’re interested in hearing more about what Nancy was talking about, I suggest checking out http://www.breakintovoiceover.com and browsing their lesson archives or contacting Nancy directly.
    Best wishes,

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy
    on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for
    me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Outstanding work!
