If you are an Aspiring Professional or a Working Professional who has not reached your goals, then this program is for you.
The goal of David Goldberg’s Mentoring Program is simple: reach your personal goals, whether that is better audition opportunities, moving from part time to full time work, segueing from one genre (e.g., commercial) to another (e.g., narration), gaining more repeat clients, and so on.
- One-on-one communication with David for any questions you may have.
- Continual advice, training, guidance, and direction with David.
- David provides tips, guidance, and structure so you grow your Voice Over business.
…which will provide
- Awareness so you understand what prospective clients think of you.
- Maintenance, so you stay on top of your game.
- Relevancy, so new voice actors don’t grab your clients.
- And a continual ‘kick in the a*s’ to maintain progress ensuring you win more work.
Monthly 1-hour long private consultations
In these session,s you and David will openly discuss your career. This is the time for you to be candid, put your feet on the ground, and develop a roadmap for success. Where are you, and where do you wish to be? How often do you audition, and how often do you win? What types of clients do you currently have, and what types do you desire to have? Lay it all out, bring up any questions and hurdles you may have, and frankly discuss what goals you have.
Your initial session can include:
Performance review: You read scripts, audition style, for David to review so that he might gauge your strengths, weaknesses, and marketable styles. You are given some direction and you have chances to re-read, then David will share with you methods to enhance your reads.
Demo review: David reviews your demos from the perspective of a seasoned casting professional. He hears what most voice actors don’t, clearly and quickly pointing out things that you may not have been able to hear yourself- those things that you wish you had known about earlier. He gives you practical suggestions on enhancing your demo.
Website review: David reviews your website. He sees what prospective clients see, in most cases pointing out things which you will be amazed you hadn’t noticed … things that need to be addressed and adjustments that need to be made.
Marketing plan review: David will ask what are your short and long term marketing goals? What does your current marketing activity actually look like? Review both with David and discuss whether your marketing approach is practical and efficient. Together, you will tailor a plan that will help you get your marketing strategies in ship-shape.
At the end of this session, you and David put your pieces into a practical game plan for moving forward, based on your budget and interests. That plan will be subdivided into in three sections:
- Clarification of your objectives
- Establishment of your practical goals
- Creation of an actionable plan with a timeline and milestones to be hit
You will set up a timeline with achievable goals, and he gives you homework to kickstart the growth of your Voice Over business. This is a realistic game plan – something obtainable – something you can make happen – and something David monitors alongside you throughout the upcoming year.
Get a serious ‘kick in the pants’ every month. Establish a state of the union with your voice over business, assess whether or not you’ve hit your milestones (remember, you’re given homework), review your progress, analyze your recent voice over income, look at everything from the perspective of clients, map out logical steps to grow your business, and map out goals for the next quarter. These sessions can also cover marketing strategies, branding of your business, and how to network in the industry.
You and David ensure you’re keeping your business plan on target.
Monthly 15-minute “Before You Submit It” Audition Direction Recording Sessions
Once a month, David will direct you (via telephone or Zoom) on one of your auditions. Obviously you’ll want to wait for a significant audition, one which you really want to win. These sessions are scheduled whenever you need them, dependent on David’s availability, often within 24-hours for quick deadlines.
David’s mentoring program provided me the training to go from being a complete novice in VO to winning my first job on the top casting site in less time than I thought possible. His program encompasses more than just professional voice coaching. It includes receiving his wide range of insider knowledge and experience in a number of key areas such as understanding what casting directors are looking for in auditions to the ins and outs of running a successful VO business. David was always there to answer all my questions and provided lots of advice and encouragement along the way.
