Well, 2015 is here! We’ve all had our holidays, and are now gearing up for a new year of work and progress in our businesses. At this point in the year, I think everyone feels the openness of possibilities, the clean slate ahead. It feels great, doesn’t it?
For me, one of my favorite things to do is to evaluate myself around this time of year. To really think through what I’m doing and why, because as I’m sure we all know, it’s really easy to get into a rut and just keep doing the same old thing. Times change, the nature of the business changes, and it’s a good idea to take your head out of the booth and look around from time to time. Think about these things:
Is there something you just ‘keep meaning to do’?
Do you have a routine or a system that works for you, but could be better or more efficient?
What’s one thing you could do to improve your business this year?
Where do you want your Voice Over career to go in 2015?
Is there a part of your business you could let go of (hire an accountant, a personal assistant, an editor) to free up your time for the things that only you can do?
There are a million questions like this to consider. But hopefully these can help you clarify your goals for the year ahead, or at least give you a place to start. I wish each and every one of you a wonderful and productive year, where ever the mic takes you!
